I got this sample when I ordered the Carrot Cake back when I needed to restock my non-caffeinated supply.
Since I’m trying to find things I can sip down, I thought I’d open this up and see what it has going on. It’s not something I can sip down in one sitting but it’s a small packet. So 2 or 3 maybe.
It has a very creamy vanilla scent in the packet. Really nice. Reminds me of the SpecialTeas Rooibos Lemon Chiffon smell.
I followed the directions, sort of: 1.5 tsp in 12 oz water at boiling. But I was busy placing my Lupicia order (the last one!!!!) and forgot to take the filter out of the cup.
It makes a sort of vibrant orange, slightly cloudy liquor and smells like lemon cookies.
The flavor is a bit disappointing. I had hoped I’d get a sweet lemon cookie flavor, what with the brown sugar in the ingredients and all. But it really isn’t sweet.
Oddly, it isn’t really overly sour or bitter either. Though it is a little of both. It’s like there’s a bit too much lemon peel in the blend? Or something.
It might be better if I didn’t oversteep it. I’ll be sure to stick to no more than 7 minutes next time.
