Meyer Lemon Herbal Tea from Stash Tea

Meyer Lemon Herbal Tea from Stash Tea

Tea Information:

Leaf Type:  Herbal Tisane

Where to Buy:  Stash Tea

Product Description:

An artfully crafted herbal blend of rosehips, lemongrass, orange peel, hibiscus, Meyer lemon oil and safflower. Meyer lemons are a cross between a lemon and mandarin orange. They are a burst of lemon flavor without the lip-puckering tartness. The juicy lemony taste and fragrant aroma of this tea is a delight any time of day, hot or iced.

Taster’s Review:

I don’t usually get all excited when it comes to herbal blends, particularly bagged herbal blends.  But when I found this tea on the Stash website last week, I knew I had to try it!   I absolutely adore Meyer Lemons!

Just as the product description above suggests, Meyer Lemons are a cross between a lemon and a mandarin orange.  They look like lemons, and taste a little bit like them too, but they are a bit sweeter.  Not quite as pucker-y sour as a regular lemon.

I was a little disappointed to find that this herbal blend contained hibiscus.  As I’ve said on many occasions, I’m not real crazy about hibiscus.  But here, it’s added well.  It adds only a little color and tartness to an already tart blend of Meyer Lemons, lemongrass, and orange peel.

So, yes, this is a tart cup.  Quite tart … even pucker-y tart.  But, it’s actually an enjoyable tartness because it’s a lemony tartness.  I love the way the lemon tastes in this blend – so beautifully bright, like the sunshine!  It tastes a bit like Meyer Lemonade!  Yum!

Since this is a bit like lemonade, I recommend serving it iced.  It is really good hot too (and it’s quite soothing for a sore throat), but I like it better chilled with just a little sugar (or agave nectar if you have it!)  If you like Meyer Lemons or are just looking for a deliciously tart tisane – give this one a try.  It’s quite refreshing!
