OH MY GOD STEEPSTER ARE YOU DOING OKAY BABE?
This review is of Lemon Pound Cake by DavidsTea, which Steepster won’t let me review — because of reasons, apparently.
Anyway, this is one of my all-time favorite oolongs. It has a mix of lemon and… umber? That’s the word that occurs to me. Like a smooth, almost breadlike quality. “Umber.” I’m doubling down on it.
There’s also something about this tea that tastes like it never came from a leaf at all. It’s some kind of liquified lemon danish that’s been run through a vise and dribbled into my mug. The tea itself isn’t even in play. I mean, I steeped it. I saw tea. I put the leaves into water. I know that they’re real. But it doesn’t taste like that. Which is sort of weird, honestly. The tea is just the skateboard that the flavor rode in on.
Anyway, it’s a fave. Thanks for reading this review. Have a happy day.
