drank Lemon and Lime Twist by Ahmad Tea
260 tasting notes

Steeped for 4 minutes, taste tested but then threw the bag in to continue infusing.

I can see how some reviewers picked up Pine Sol, it’s a light note and not off-putting to me but more comforting.

This is a light black tea, the flavor is not overpowering like a lemon-lime soda but more citrus notes that fade in and fade out. The aroma is all citrus on the nose, as would be expected.

Overall, I was underwhelmed. Maybe it was this go-round but there wasn’t a lot of tea flavor to this one and it got all muddled into the citrus notes anyway. Opposite of Earl Grey which has predominant black tea notes with the citrusy bergamot. I felt a little lost drinking this, but it was a pleasant enough tea none the less. Great addition to the biscuits I dunked in, which made them more of a lemon cookie.

Flavors: Citrus, Lime

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.
