A while back a reader suggested that I give The Tea Emporium a try. As I was running low on teas to review, I placed an order a few weeks ago. It arrived quickly from Canada and the first one I decided to try was the Sweet Lemon Green Tea.
From the site, the blend contains Japanese green tea with lemon peel and lemongrass.
It is available in a variety of sizes: 50g for $7.25, 100g for $14.50, and 250g for $32.63.
When I opened the package the tea smelled sort of like sweet grass. I could see the big lemon chunks. While brewing I got more of the lemon aroma. When brewed it was very light and sweet. I enjoyed it as a hot tea, but I think it would make a really great summer iced tea. I think I’ll have to try that at home!
