Taster’s Review:

When I opened this pouch of White Lemon Tea from Whispering Pines Tea Company, I noticed the rooibos, and I worried that I’d be tasting more rooibos than white tea, and I also wondered if the lemongrass would have a difficult time competing with these flavors.

And while the rooibos does overpower the white tea a bit, the rooibos does not completely overwhelm the white tea.  The white tea does manage to shine through, although, I find myself wishing that I was tasting less rooibos and more white tea here.

But, on the plus side, I find that the lemongrass comes through very nicely, and provides a very pleasing, smooth, buttery taste that melds quite nicely with the woody/nutty taste of the rooibos as well as the delicate flavor of the white tea.

The lemon taste is a sweeter lemon flavor, as if the usually tart lemon has been sweetened with a touch of honey … but without additives!  That I like a lot!  I also like that this is an organic blend, and that there are no artificial flavorings to mess with the taste buds.  I taste pure rooibos, lemongrass and white tea … and nothing else.

A really nice, relaxing blend.
