Its OK"At first, all I tasted was the lemon, but as it cooled just a bit, I discovered the aftertaste of the strawberry. This tea is well named, because it's definitely a lemon tea with a slight background of strawberry."

necessiteasstrawlemonOne of my favorite teas is Lady Londonderry - a strawberry lemon tea. So when I saw this green Strawberry Lemonade, I knew I had to give it a try.

Many tea fanatics are familiar with The NeccesiTeas, know for their amazing flavors. There is not a flavor out there that Lindsey, the ownder of NeccesiTeas is afraid to pair with tea! And her flavors are very succesful!

I drank the sample of Strawberry Lemonade green tea that I received, two different ways. I made a pitcher of iced tea and I had several nice hot cups of tea!

This green tea has large leaves and is a very dark green. You can smell the lemon right away, and there are bits of dried strawberries, lemon grass and lemon peel mixed in with the green tea. I chose 170 degrees for my water because the green tea was large and dark.

For my hot tea, I steeped the tea for 3 minutes for the first cup. It's a pretty dark green tea and smell nice and lemony. At first, all I tasted was the lemon, but as it cooled just a bit, I discovered the aftertaste of the strawberry. This tea is well named, because it's definitely a lemon tea with a slight background of strawberry.

The iced tea is very good too, though I taste much less of the strawberry when it's cold. It's a little strange for me, but for some reason, I wanted a bit of sweetness. I think I had hoped to taste the strawberry a little more. Of course, we can imagine up a flavor prior to drinking a tea and I probably emphasized the strawberry part too much in my head. I like lemon OK, but I think I prefer it more as a background flavor.

That being said, this was a great green tea. Very smooth, easy to brew and you can steep several cups from one teaspoon of tea!
