This dry tea has to be the absolutely best smelling tea in the world! I would rate the dry tea 100 for smell. It smells very extremely lemony with a bit of ginger but no sour or bitter smell.

When the tea has been steeped it still smells great but not quite as good as when it is dry. The smell of the steeped tea would rate about a 90.

Unfortunately you can’t taste near as much lemon taste as you can smell. The taste is good but unfortunately it is a bit of a let down after having my hopes so high based on the smell of the tea. I would rate the taste at 80 so overall I am rating it in the mid 80’s because taste needs to be weighted more heavily than the smell of a tea.

There are no natural or artificial flavors in this tea. The amazingly good lemon smell comes from “lemon myrtle” which is not lemon at all but according to the package it is said to taste more lemony than lemon .

Flavors: Ginger, Lemon

I just recently got into tea (fall of 2015).

I love trying many types of tea. So far I have tried many Black, Oolong, Green and White teas as well as Yerba Mate, Rooibos, Honey Bush, Chamomile, Mint and fruit teas. I have liked good teas in almost every category. I don’t go for overly bitter/astringent, tart, or sweet teas and I never add milk/cream, sugar or other sweeteners to my tea.

Even though I have many excellent teas I always want to try a new one just to see what it tastes like and if I like it even better than my current favorites. Eventually I will focus more on drinking my favorites rather than always trying a different type of tea.


85+ Excellent and I will definitely repurchase soon so I don’t run out.

75-84 Really good and I will probably buy it again.

65-74 Good and I might buy it again but on the other hand maybe I won’t repurchase.

50-64 OK and I might finish the box.

1-49 Really did not like it at all. I probably dumped out the rest of the cup for the teas on the lower end of this range.

I am only doing one review per tea. If I drink it multiple times and my opinion changes then I will go back and update my rating and tasting notes.
