Tealish's Lemon Meringue Rooibos tea is a lemon-flavored tea consisting of both red and green rooibos. I can't say that I've had many rooibos blends that combine both the red and green varieties. On looks alone, the blend appears to have a higher ratio of red rooibos than green. The exact ingredients that are providing the lemon flavor are not disclosed and visual examination of the blend doesn't really provide me with further insight. I made a cup of this tea using boiling water and a nice lengthy five minute steep time. The first thing that struck me was how lemony the flavor was. The lemon flavor was crisp and clean, with a nice zesty finish. The second thing I noticed was that I wasn't exactly getting any of dessert element, as the name of this tea would otherwise suggest. The Tealish website mentions a creamy finish, but I have to say that I didn't notice that this one was particularly creamy, at least not more so than any other rooibos. As a lemon tea, this blend is quite decent. The lemon flavor is strong, yet not sour or pungent. I really did end up enjoying this tea, particularly as an iced tea, but my main issue with this tea is that its name suggests it to be a sweeter dessert-like tea than I actually observed it to be. All things considered, however, I did like this tea and I would drink it again and recommend it to others. My only reservation about this tea is that its name is misleading, as this is really more of a zesty citrus tea than a sweet dessert tea.
