Sipdown no. 28 for the year 2014. I’m counting it as a sipdown because I’m throwing away the sample packet, but I do have a tin of this as well. I think it counts if it means something gets to be thrown away? If I’m cheating, let me know and I won’t count it.
After my epiphany of the other day that it’s okay for me to like I Love Lemon, I feel less urgency about finding a perfect lemon tisane, which is quite liberating. I can just sit back and enjoy this one.
Pretty much everything I said in my first note about this remains accurate on this tasting, particularly with respect to the gentle quality of the lemon. I thought perhaps the bitter note was new, but I see I identified it before. It’s really only at the very first of the sip. By the time it hits the middle, it’s gone, and in the finish, there’s a sweetness to the lemon that does remind me of the aftertaste of a lightly flavored lemon cookie.
I feel very virtuous sipping my lemon while the rest of the family gorges on chicken wings. ;-)
Time to sleep for me, I think. G’night all and sweet dreams.
