myteashelfcidronBravo to the writer! did an absolutely fabulous job prescribing the medication for summer heat and the ensuing drowsiness it can inflict. Generally, I remain a bit distanced from the descriptions of tea on sites, but Barrie, I understand her and she did a glorious and imaginative job describing Cidron Berry. Her words didn't set me up for disappointment, instead they were spot on and straight forward.

Now, for the tea. The organic lemon verbena is the main character of the tea, performing as a revitalising freshener to the weary mouth, eyes and mind. The wake up call that the verbena packs is not violent or harsh, but intrinsically subtle and appropriate. The lemon verbena is backed up by organic raspberries, organic vanilla, organic panela, organic blackberry leaf and organic peppermint. The peppermint brings out the flavours without overpowering them, so there's no need to be wary of the mint in this blend. I found the website's instructions for temperature and brew time quite adequate, 205 Fahrenheit and 5 minutes. I much preferred this delightful herbal blend on the rocks rather than steamy. Essentially, I find myself a bit impressed with the lemon based tea, as I normally grow very bitter towards the lemon category. This is the first good lemony tea I have enjoyed for quite some time.
