“If a cup of tea won’t fix it, you really do have a problem.”
I don’t remember where I read that recently, but it seems pretty true at times. I was in a bit of a grump and decided to have a cuppa. This one is new to me, not just the flavor but the brand itself. Mine is an individually wrapped tea bag but the company also sells sachets and loose leaf.
Green lemon had the potential to go bad, very bad. Green tea can be pretty astringent and raw, and lemon can be puckeringly sour, so a combination of the wrong types of those two could be a mistake of epic proportions. Okay, it could turn out to be a bad cup of tea, but when you are in a grump, that is a pretty big mistake.
Instead, I started singing as soon as I picked up my cup. “Where troubles melt like lemon drops, away above the chimney tops, that’s where you’ll find me!”
This tea smells just like lemon drops! Which I love! Bright and sunny, sweet and happy! Yes, it is a little brisk as most green teas are, but it tastes great and I feel the sun peeking out from behind the clouds. No puckering here, just a smile.
Since I needed tea fast, I appreciate the instructions that said to only steep for one to two minutes, and I kept it short. I could handle cup after cup of this. It is so lemony good you might almost hope for a sore throat just for an excuse to sip it all day long.

My Grandfather ADORED Lemon Drop Candy! When I first saw Lemon Drop Tea from The Tea Can Company I couldn’t wait to try it! It’s part of their Candy Shop Collection. The labels for their Candy Shop Collection are adorable and nostalgic.
High elevation Ceylon Black Tea, Lemon Peel and Australian Lemon Myrtle? I’m THERE! The company says this tea has the mouthwatering taste of Lemon and the classic taste of Black Tea come together to create this delightful, sweet, low-calorie treat. Again…I’m THERE!
Well it certainly smells like Lemon Drop Candy with a bit of black tea! The aroma is gentle and flowing. Lemony-sweet! I closed my eyes in slow-motion as I sniffed this flavored black steeping in my cup!
After my first sip I was pretty pleased with my first impression of this tea. It’s not a powerful black tea base by any means but that doesn’t mean that I didn’t LOVE it! Because I did! The lemon peel and lemon myrtle worked great together – of course! I’m surprised at the candy-sweet yet citrus flavor this has only having 3 ingredients in it! The perfect case of ‘less is more’.
The lemon flavors aren’t puckery – per say – but more of a sugary-sweet and creamier lemon flavor. If you are familiar with Meyer Lemons that may just be what this is reminding me of! Meyer Lemons. Thus far…my favorite LEMON.
Regardless…Lemon Drop Tea from The Tea Can Company is absolutely wonderful! It reminds me of my grandfather and takes me back in time! A time when things were more simple and everyone appreciated the little things! YUM!
