I love enjoying this tea with a bit of milk, which I would not usually add to a green tea, because it brings out a delicious creaminess that you normally only get with black teas. I have bought this flavor several times because I can't find another green blend like it.
I have never been a fan of green tea, but this came in a sampler pack I bought and I figured, what the heck, I like lemons, so we'll give it a shot. Turns out even the wonderful lemon aroma can't hide the green in it. It smelled so promising but them fell short on flavor.
So many lemon-like, lemon-ish teas to love and none of them on my grocery's shelves . . . but now I have this Award-Winning Lemon Sorbetti to add to my tea treasures, brought right to me by Tea Forte!!! Lucky me!!!
While I enjoy a lemon or citrus flavor, this is not it. It tastes more like cake batter.
I don't like green tea....but now I do! This is a really tasty tea. I normally go for all the fancy flavors and different brands, but they never strike me enough to buy them a second time. This one is different. In fact, I saved one of the wrappers so I would remember the name to order again. Like any green tea, you only steep 5 minutes total. The flavor is very mildly lemon. But this is one of those teas, that as soon as the cup cools enough, you find yourself chugging it like a soda pop because the taste is so satisfying. Try it. It will likely become a staple.
This will be one of my staple teas from Tea Forte. I love lemon and also green teas. This is wonderful. Even when I steep this longer than the recommended time it's not too powerful. Smells and tastes like REAL lemon without being overpowering. This is good any time of the day for me and i'm sure it would make a great iced tea as well. Love it
The first time I tried this tea, I walked away and over-steeped it. It came out bitter and not so pleasant. The second cup I timed and WOW! Deliciously lemony without tasting like a cleaning product! It's really great after a meal to cleanse the palette, or just as a sweet treat!
I am not a big fan of green tea, however this tea is making me change my mind about green tea. I prepare it by only heating the water to 175 and steeping for 2 minutes, yet there is still an undertone of green tea there, so just a small amount of sweetener and this tea is perfect. It is a milder flavor than what I was expecting, but pleasant nonetheless.
I love this tea. It has a smooth lemon flavor with a hint of sweetness. If I wanted a 'lemon drop' in the form of tea, this would be it. I add a touch of stevia if I want to make it sweeter. Now that it is getting warmer, I can't wait to try it iced! I didn't know it was a green tea when I first bought it. It is not bitter at all!
I was so eager to try this because I love lemon teas. But I was very disappointed because I could hardly taste the lemon. I think the name is misleading. It probably sold a lot due to the name.
This tea which is supposed to replicate the lemon sorbet ices does not live up to its promise. I love both lemon teas and the lemon ices, so i thought i had found the perfect product. The lemon taste is muted and the tea leaves an after taste that is far from pleasant. I was excited when I saw this product and I now find myself struggling to get through the canister. Too bad, I will probably try the ginger lemongrass as I pursue my search for a delicious lemon tea.
This makes for a very refreshing cup of green tea. I definitely recommend it!
