drank I Love Lemon by Bigelow
260 tasting notes

10oz from a tea for one pot/mug set.

I was surprised by just how much I like this tea, especially considering my initial impressions. The nose is a bit floral but once brewed has distinct notes of a lemon cough lozenge or syrup. It’s not off-putting by any means, despite what may be your initial reaction. More so, those notes offer a sense of comfort if you are feeling down, this tea is a great companion if you feel stuffy or sick. I can tell already.

This lozenge scent turns into an inviting bouquet similar more to boiled sweets than a medicinal chemically-laden concoction.
The taste is much smoother than the smell leads on, don’t judge this cup from the surface. At first sip it yields into a warm mixture of lemongrass, rosehips, and lemon verbena with just enough tangy bite on the finish.

You aren’t biting into a lemon, but rather enjoying a delightful herbal infusion with real health benefits from Vitamin C when steeped to their recommendation.

I would stock this as a wind-down cup or for those who enjoy the thought of tea but not the tannin associated with black or strong green tea leaves. It’s very good for boxed/bagged/commercial.

Flavors: Citrusy, Lemon Zest, Lemongrass, Rosehips

I enjoy many tasty things in life. Getting back into tea as I am trying to wean off of coffee for regular consumption and maintain a more healthy lifestyle.

Also enjoyed are all of the historical implications of tea culture, and teas of the world.
Take a moment to meditate with a cup in hand, and our world will seem clearer when the last sip leaves your cup!

My rating system is in honor of K.S.

90-100 Stellar, to be displayed proudly if shared with guests. Or just a tea that hits its mark well.
80-90 I enjoy this tea a lot, would purchase and drink it. Fine if it lives in the pantry
70-80 Above Average, would drink it and probably still buy if the mood struck me.
50-70 Average, I would still drink it when available.
0-50 I don’t care for this tea, and have no desire to care for it.
