drank Lemon French Macaron by Butiki Teas
1908 tasting notes

Argh, this tea is a pain in the arse to measure. I ended up just dumping some in my cup and eyeballing it to see if it was the right amount. It still smells lovely and lemony despite the tea’s age. It tastes lemony as well but it doesn’t taste like straight-up dried lemon peel but more a sweet lemon cream. It’s mixed with the delicate hay-like flavours of the base with a hint of nuttiness. Age has dulled the flavour a bit, I think, but if you exercised your imagination a bit you could see how it tastes akin to a lemon macaron.

I’m a university student in her twenties who’s currently working her way toward a Bachelor of Natural Resource Science degree. I love both science and science-fiction and I’m a history nut on top of that. Maybe I should just call myself a nerd and leave it there. ;)

I’ve been drinking tea since I was young but it’s only in the past couple years that I’ve become interested in the good-quality stuff.
