I’ve been looking for a citrusy herb tea that did not contain hibiscus or rose hips — not easy. I first tried this iced in a NYC cafe, and iced is its best incarnation. It’s minty and the tartness is not too sour or fruity. The citrus is more lime than lemon, and more zest than juice. It makes the perfect unsweetened, uncaffeinated iced tea, but it’s also my go-to herbal when I’m feeling a cold coming on. I know this isn’t the lime-blossom tisane that Proust’s aunt used to give him, but it tastes exactly as I imagined that tea to have tasted.
