The leaf smells delightfully lemony!
I was tapping out this tea into my gravity steeper on my kitchen scale, going for 4 grams. I hit 3 grams, and then a bunch lept out, hitting 6 grams! I put some back into the pouch but didn’t want to return any wet leaf from rinsing out the steeper. So I compromised and went with 5 grams.
The lemon myrtle is really the star of this tea. Like the name suggests, it’s like a walk through a garden. A garden with a lot of lemon scents, with other smells peaking at me in the background.
Oops, I let it get cool. So I added a bit of ice. It was slightly overleafed anyway, and it balanced out. Now I’m sitting in that garden on a warm day, cooling off to this tea. A slice of lemon would be great in it, I’ll bet. The vegetal notes come out a bit more for me when iced. This is really a fun, nice tea.
