Citrus and green tea. Not one of my favorite combinations. In fact I usually detest it to the point that I will avoid it.
So why did I try this one? Because everything deserves a second chance. Except the one at Starbucks. I am just not a fan of that one.
Today is very windy with a high of 80 so I figured it was a good time to test this one out. Initially brewed hot and then cooled over the course of the day.
Enjoyable both ways.
The citrus flavors would definitely be enjoyable with a sore throat when it’s hot, maybe a drop of honey along with it. For those who aren’t fond of grassy flavors this is a great tea for you as the citrus is predominate.
By the way if you prefer to buy tea from companies that care about more then their bottom line, Love Tea is a great company to buy from.

This Brilliant Blend is a fan favorite. It combines the best of green tea with the best of a lemon, with lemon bits and wedges you’ll get the full “lemon-y” affect. Low in caffeine and easy on the pallet, it goes down like a smooth summer day (without the humidity). Brew a pot of this fine blend and serve hot or cold year ’round. It never hurts to add a fresh lemon slice to anything! Be sure to #sharethelove on this one.

Citrus Green from Adagio Teas. . . . .
With the birds chirping, flowers blooming, and in general, the weather getting warmer, I’ve found that my hot tea drinking days are few and far between. I’ve been craving cold brew tea and when I say crave, I mean I am gulping and sipping down cold brew tea with reckless abandonment. All I do is set up either my Libre Tea Infuser with a healthy dose of ice and water with either my loose leaf/tea sachet or I set up a giant mason jar I have with ice, water, and a larger ice tea pouch/reusable muslin tea bag with lots of loose leaf. Both produce amazing results and are quick for this mom on the go.
The other day I was wanting more of a citrus tea but wasn’t finding one that really sounded like it would hit the spot. Hence where Citrus Green from Adagio Teas enters the scene. As soon as I saw this lonely tea sachet in the midst of my loose leaf tea stash, I knew this was the tea for me.
I promptly filled my Libre Tea with ice, freshly filtered water and popped the tea sachet into the infuser. Waited about 30 minutes and took my first sip. Refreshing citrus green tea happily greeted me.
Refreshing green tea with a hint of a citrus note eagerly greeted me. With only cold brewing the tea for a short span of time, the flavors were not allowed to really settle and develop. But what I had, I did like. Crisp Green tea with hints here and there of a combination of orange, lime, and lemon. I think with this being a citrus flavored tea, an addition of a dash of mint would really escalate the tea and I plan to do just that the next time I find myself with this particular tea blend. Even with the more subtle tea flavors, this tea hit the spot and I would have no problem picking some more up to properly cold brew and yield the fullest flavor I can.
