Lemon Vibration/Wise Ape Tea -Skysamurai-

Are you familiar with the song Good Vibrations by Marky Mark feat The Funky Bunch?

If not or if you need a refresher go take a listen then come back. This tisane definitely has lemon vibrations.

To be honest I don’t drink herbals unless I’m sick but seeing as this was in the review pile I didn’t want to wait till I was sick to drink it. Plus when your sick your sense of taste is messed up. Everything about this cuppa shouts spa. It smells like you walked into a high-class spa. The flavor isn’t overly lemony.

So it’s perfect for relaxing and winding down. Everything blends well, with a unique sweet after taste.

Also want to give a shoutout to the company for sending 10% profits to charity.

Ginger Lemon Zest/True Honey Teas – Ashmanra-

A friend sent me some samples of Ginger Lemon Zest recently, and since the bags were so huge and plump with all the goodies inside I pulled out a gallon pitcher thinking that these must make two quarts each, or at least one quart with the possibility of resteeping. Fortunately, I decided to look up the instructions online before boiling my water because each bag is good for just eight to ten ounces! I had to look twice to be sure I wasn’t misreading that!

I used two bags and twenty ounces of water. When I pulled the bags out of the steeping cup, they were limp little bundles with very little left in them! Wow! That’s because much of what had filled the bag was the granulated honey infused with the ginger flavor.

The resulting brew looks like cloudy tea because this herbal mixture has LOTS of honey granules. Have no fear, it is not overly sweet.

I drank a small cup hot before bedtime to help with the reflux and heartburn issues I have been having lately and put the rest in the fridge.

This is really ginger forward, very warm but not unpleasantly hot and spicy, and nicely sweet from the honey. So convenient for carrying with you to work where a jar of honey might make a mess! The lemon myrtle is very light and more on the back of the sip, much gentler than citrus would be, with ginger rising again and lingering after. This would be brilliant to have around for colds and sore throats, not just tender tummies.

I enjoyed this as a relaxing bedtime cuppa but as a Southern gal in the dog days of summer, I am seriously looking forward to mixing this half and half with my sweet black tea on lots of ice!

Lemon Tea/Indias Tea – Teaequalsbliss-

This is the first tea I have tried from Indias Tea and I have to say I really enjoyed it! You can’t go wrong with a hefty black tea base and a lovely, puckery lemon flavor to pair along side with it!

Indias Tea says their Lemon Tea ‘swirls up your mood to the brim with its tongue tickling taste alongside a squash of freshness’ and I would have to agree with that!

They also say that their ‘Lemon Tea is here to set your mood rolling with an instant gush of thrill through its tangy surprise in every sip and a hint of spices as you relish on the drink towards entirety’…but I have to say my FAVORITE part of what they have to say about this offering is that it doesn’t have a ‘time stamp’ and can be enjoyed any time of day! YAY!

I achieved the amber hue in my cup after infusing about a tablespoon of the loose leaf for about 3 minutes – just as suggested!

This is a real winner from Indias Tea and a great way to start (or finish) the day!

The Tea That Smells Like Lemon Drops. . . Green Lemon/Newby Tea

“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.

Raspmonade from TeaTaxi. . . .

This has been the first day in a while that I have had the opportunity to relax. To me, that means sitting by the fire while drinking cup after cup of tea. Now, as much as I like to say I am not impacted by caffeine, I know it is good to switch it up a bit. To that end, I like to mix in a rooibos, honeybush, or herbal infusion amongst all the mugs of black tea, green tea, and oolong.

I brewed up my entire sample packet (5 grams) of this Raspmonade tea by TeaTaxi as a hot tea, steeping it in near boiling water (200F) for 3 minutes, 2 minutes shorter than the recommended steeping parameters as the rooibos began to smell quite strong.

As I drink now, the rooibos is strong but more so because the other flavors are so subtle which leaves little to taste other than the base. I get some berry flavor from the raspberry leaves but lemon comes through mainly in scent.

I don’t know if my understeeping is at play here but this lacks the flavor I was looking for when I brewed this up. I wanted sweet raspberry and bright lemon and I got generic berry rooibos. Definitely not what I was hoping for but still fun to try something new.

 


Here’s the scoop!
