whistlingkettlelemonhoneybushI am a huge sucker for blends that are lemon cream flavoured and all the variations that entails (lemon chiffon, vanilla lemon,etc.). However you want to word it, something about lemon and vanilla together makes for a brilliant hot drink, and I sample them whenever I get the chance. Unfortunately, the last one I sampled (it wasn't for Teaviews, so you don't have to worry about reading the abysmal review) was awful beyond all reason, and I ended up throwing most of it out. I don't think I'll be having that problem again; however, as the dry leaf has lots of mix-ins and smells brilliant. I brew a teaspoon per cup with boiling water for 7 minutes.

The brewed cup smells as amazing as the leaf. It has a rich amber liquor and smells richly of lemon and cream. The flavour is more cream than lemon. Many blends (including the aforementioned awful one) are heavy on the lemon and light on the vanilla, but this leans heavily the other way. I like it this way - it ends up being extremely decadent. The lemon is milder than expected, but it's still distinctly present.

It's a sweet, decadent blend with a lingering, creamy aftertaste. It's exactly how I like my lemon cream rooibos blends. It's a bit of a different balance than a lot of similar teas, but it's a balance I can appreciate. It's delicious and affordable and exactly the sort of herbal I want on my shelf.
