jaroftealemonadeThis is my first experience with the company known as Jar of Tea, which, not surprisingly, sells all of its tea in glass jars. I was a bit surprised at this, since I have almost always read that tea should be kept in opaque containers (such as tins) to prevent light from breaking down the leaves. Anyway, let’s move on to the review. The herbal lemonade is a blend of green rooibos with lemon grass, lemon peel, lemon myrtle, calendula, and flavoring. All ingredients are organic. Because of the use of rooibos, flower petals, and leaves of various herbs, this tea has a potpourri-like appearance and a lemony-woodsy aroma. I used water that had just come to a boil and a four-minute steeping. The liquid has a transparent yellow color. As far as the flavor goes, this does taste very much like lemonade, thanks to the contributions of the lemon grass, lemon peel, lemon myrtle, and probably the flavoring. Unlike real lemonade, however, this tea has a natural sweetness that is provided by the rooibos. The green rooibos was a great choice to use as the base of this tea. Compared to the rich and nutty flavor of red rooibos, the green rooibos offers a more subtle springy and fresh flavor that complements the lemon flavors very well. The calendula petals looked pretty in the mix but I honestly couldn’t taste them in the prepared brew. I didn’t mind this as a hot beverage, but found that this tea really shines when taken as an iced drink. This is a sugar-free and guilt-free alternative to real lemonade, which is often laden with sugar to counteract the sour lemon flavor. This tea is something I would drink again and something I would recommend to others. The price on this tea is very economical.
