When I first opened the foil packet this tea came in, I was astounded by the fact that this tea smelled very much like Apple Cider, but with lemons instead of apples. After steeping the smell was even stronger!
This tea is a real delight to drink, and it does, indeed, remind me of fall weather. It makes me long for the return of the school year; I feel like I should be drinking this to support me as I study, wearing warmer clothing.
Again I love the addition of the black tea to this other Bigelow tea (the other one being the Plantation Mint) which gives me a good caffein boost and kicks the flavor of the lemon up quite a great deal. This tea tastes great hot, and the name doesn’t do this fact justice; I believe that Bigelow really should change this tea blend’s name to Lemon Cider, as that’s exactly what it tastes like.
The only reason I have a slightly lower score for this blend instead of Plantation Mint is because of the lack of actual lemon in this tea. Even though it certainly tastes like the real thing, I bet the flavor would have been very much improved if it contained some actual lemon peel instead of soy lecithin.
