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 .
