This is the last new tea that I purchased last week from A Southern Season. I shared some with my Mom in her Easter basket, and had a cup on Easter afternoon while we were cooking. I’m really loving this one. The dry leaves smell just like lemon cake, and the tea liquor has a sweet, creamy lemon aroma. The flavor is tart lemon and there is a rooibos, honeybush and sweet lemon aftertaste. You can definitely taste the rooibos and honeybush in this one, but I actually don’t even mind because it blends so well with the other flavors. Adding a little sweetener brings out some of the cakey notes, and a little milk makes the cup nice and creamy. This is really delicious tea, and I am so happy that I can have a cup right before bed! :)
