Thumbs up!"The lemon flavors are more noticeable than the white tea itself, but not overwhelmingly so. This tea offers the slighly spicy lemongrass flavor as well as sweeter lemon notes."

chaibabylemonmyrtleWhite Tea and Lemon Myrtle is the first tea I have sampled from the Chai Baby line, and it is also the first tea that I have had which contains lemon myrtle. This tea comes packaged in a sachet whose contents are clearly visible through the light mesh. The white tea leaves inside the sachet are small, broken pieces of Bai Mudan, complemented with lemon myrtle and lemongrass. The sachet is pyramidal in shape and, being relatively large (by sachet standards), allows adequate space for infusion of the leaves. This tea has a clean and inviting citrusy aroma, however the key here is that it is not too powerful. Sometimes, lemon fragrances can be too pungent and end up smelling more like kitchen cleaners than a food or beverage. Luckily that is not the case here. The tea brews to a pale golden color with a faint lemon aroma. The flavor is very refreshing and gave my mouth a clean feeling. The Bai Mudan used is a soft and subtle tea that takes the citrus flavors well. The lemon flavors are more noticeable than the white tea itself, but not overwhelmingly so. The amount of lemongrass and lemon myrtle seem to be, as Goldilocks would say, just right. Although lemongrass is a favorite of mine, lemon myrtle is totally new to me. Based on what I am tasting here, however, I would compare it to the sweet lemon flavor of lemon balm. This tea offers the slighly spicy lemongrass flavor as well as sweeter lemon notes; in all, this is a nice, well-rounded cup. This tea was really tasty as a hot beverage, but was even better iced. I was impressed with this tea and would recommend this to others.
