May Flowers! This tea is a delight! It tastes just like a sweet lemon sugar cookie that has been infused with just a touch of lavender, and it hits me in aaaaaaaaaaall the right ways! Sniffing the leaf, it has a very strong lemon scent; there are aspects to it that are tangy and citrusy, but others that are creamy and sweet like a lemon dessert, and it all sort of hits the senses at once.
Brewed up, the tea has a strong, lemonade tartness, but beneath that is a layer of creamy vanilla sweetness, and they play off each other nicely. Beneath the strong lemon is a subtle floral hint of lavender, and my only complaint is that the lavender comes off a little too softly because the lemon flavor is so strong in this tea, and lavender is such a nice compliment note to lemon, so I actually will take a pinch or two from my lavender bud stash that I use for mixing and add it to my infuser just to give the lavender element a little more strength. If you aren’t a big floral fan, then the lavender here should be subtle enough beneath the lemon and vanilla that unless you are particularly sensitive, it shouldn’t bother you much.
I really love lemon flavor profiles, and while I’m okay with lemon ginger teas, it’s nice to finally have a sweeter flavor pairing instead of spicy. This is a fantastic tea for fans of a sweet-tart flavor on the tongue, and is simply delightful before bed with the soft floral lavender touch.
