Kind of an unsubtle, uncomplicated, cloying flavor. Easily one of my least favorite teas. Since you can’t buy it anymore, this isn’t really useful information, but I was annoyed that its overall rating is as high as it is, so here we are.

Just got this tea in the mail the other day. Ordered it because it was the end of year sale and cheap. It also sounded good when I read the reviews and description, but I can not say that I like it, yet I keep drinking it. This tea might be good if you had a cold but I doubt it. I would not recommend this tea to anyone.
The tea itself is hard to describe. It is citrusy lemon or lime flavored. The only good thing about this tea is that it does not leave a horrible after taste in my mouth.
Flavors: Citrusy, Lemon, Lime
My husband told me this morning that this has become one of his favorite teas. He said that it’s the closest thing to key lime pie that he’s tried yet. His favorite dessert. I’ve actually been putting off tasting it, I think because I really can’t wrap my head around hot limeade.
The aroma is all citrus, of course. There are bits of citrus peel in the mix and maybe some dried apple too. After steeping, all but the citrus peel has turned to mush. The liquid itself is cloudy with pulp. It smells very tart.
The taste itself is tart and bitter all at once. It’s very strong and is reminiscent of chewing on a piece of lime zest. It does kind of have a grapefruit flavor to it as well though I’m not sure if there is actually grapefruit in this blend.
I’m seriously thinking about tossing the rest of this. The only reason I haven’t yet is because I know my husband loves it and spared this precious sample knowing that the bag was already so near empty. I certainly don’t want to waste one of his favorites.
Flavors: Bitter, Citrus, Citrus Zest, Grapefruit, Tart
I’ve been loving citrus teas and cold-steeping. The sales clerk at Teavana assured me this was an aaaamazing ice tea. I did a shot of boiling water and then added cold water and let it steep in the fridge for 2 days.
Dry – Lots of large chunks, smells amazing, citrus and sweet.
Steeped – Very cloudy golden color.
Taste – It has a light sweetness but also bitter rind and all I can taste is the grapefruit. The aftertaste leaves an acidic tart bite in the back of my throat.
I didn’t really enjoy this. I think the grapefruit really turns me off. I think I will try it again, cold but with sweetener added.
Flavors: Bitter, Citrus Zest, Grapefruit, Lime, Sour, Tart
I think I like this one more than the Raspberry Balsamico, but I’m having them blended again. 1 tbsp each tea in my big teapot (eee!), steeped 4 minutes. I added 1 tsp honey.
Whatever I don’t drink tonight will go in the fridge for tomorrow!
This is nice and limey. Some raspberry. Some sweetish taste that could be the balsamic. The blend is good, but the lime on its own is better. Too bad it’s a heavier, and thus more expensive, tea. If it’s even available anymore…
Tried this at a friend’s house last weekend – and didn’t like it one bit. The first few sips weren’t too bad. A strong lime flavor, very puckery, and way too sweet. It reminded me of candy, a liquid version of Sour Patch Kids or Smarties. Then as the tea cooled down and I drank further down into the cup… UGH. The lime aftertaste was so powerful in the back of my throat that I needed to drink something else to get rid of the taste. Will not be having this again, not even iced.
Flavors: Candy, Citrus, Lime, Sour, Sweet, Tart
This was an enjoyable iced tea; I definitely wouldn’t recommend drinking it hot! Sweetened, it’s just like drinking limeade. Unsweetened, it’s a very refreshing summer tea. It brews up to a nice pale green color and has a strong (but not too tart) lime flavor with a pleasant hint of pineapple.
Flavors: Lime, Pineapple, Pleasantly Sour, Tart
This blend just may have converted my hubby to drinking iced teas all summer (he’s really not a tea drinker)! I haven’t had it hot yet, but as an iced infusion, it is so tasteful and refreshing! It is full-bodied, but not too tart for me. I have been making it with only one tsp of sugar (per 16 oz) which seems perfect for us. I served it at a BBQ we hosted, to other non-tea-drinkers, and it was a huge hit! Seems to be great for everyone and the Lime is a nice change from the ever-popular lemon blends.
