Review of Lemon Lift Black Tea

7 of 103 of 53 of 563 of 100
Very GoodFairReasonable

The dry teabag smells like a spiced cake, like carrot cake or gingerbread. The spice is predominantly cinnamon (mellow "Ceylon" cinnamon rather than the hotter cassia), but there's something else there, too, like nutmeg or ginger.

Interestingly, the instructions say to only steep for two minutes. I'm ignoring their advice and steeping for four, but I thought it was worth mentioning.

The lemon oil aroma appears when the hot water hits the tea. It still smells spicy, but the lemon is on equal footing.

The flavor continues to be "cakey", like a lemon pound cake. The lemon and spice mixture is nicely balanced and is honestly quite delicious. I can barely taste the tea under the flavoring, though, probably because of Bigelow's nearly flavorless base tea. It's pleasant to drink, but in the end, I would prefer it to taste like tea.
