Smells like pinesol tastes like limeaid. Don’t really taste the black tea, but I know it’s there as I see the bag expand in size. At least its not bitter, and I think this would actually be a good candidate for grampa style brewing. Maybe throw in a bag of ginger(which typically disappoints as a solo cup). I am always looking for bags that taste good as they travel much easier than loose leaf, but I’m not sure I’d purchase this again. I’ll experiment with iced tea, but as hot tea the lime taste seems decent up front, then lingers into meh as a chemical afterthought. A small dollop of honey makes it a little less aftertasty and more limey.
It’s nice that there’s a best before date on the box as I’m not sure I’ll be drinking this all that fast.

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.

Y’all would be so proud of me…my bagged tea stash is almost manageable, in tea chests on shelves and not in lumps and heaps all over the kitchen. (Loose tea is a different story, but hey, progress is progress.)

And as I was organizing, I was reminded that I needed to freshen up my work selections, so a stray bag of Lemon and Lime went into my bag o’bags. It is light and pleasant for a no-fuss afternooner. I taste the lime first, which is a nifty little flavor surprise as well.

Hooray! My teas shelves are looking a lot better! I am determined to get down to a reasonable (to me) number of favorites. My cupboard does not include samples or a whole lots of teas that just were not in the database yet and I haven’t felt like adding them. I celebrate your progress with you!

Certainly progress is progress. Still better than I. I have tea in cupboard, on shelves, drawer and under the desk. And ordering more and more…

First tea from my July 2018 Sips By Teabox.

Not too enthused with my box this month, 3 out of 4 teas are bagged, and one has a first ingredient of hibiscus but I thought I’d start out with the black teas since it just feels like a black tea kind of morning.

This is about what I would expect from a citrus black tea that isn’t bergamot. The lemon is pretty strong, though the lime is sort of overwhelmed by it. The tea base is pretty solid but nothing to write home about. The lemony taste lingers in the back of my throat in a pleasant way after every sip. I’ll enjoy this tea, but I don’t think I’ll be purchasing it.

I’m always looking for good, comforting, mild teas for when I’m getting sick. This is a good one. A hint of citrus, but mostly just enjoyable warmth.
