About Lemon Black Tea

Teacup filled with black tea, lemon slice, and spoon, on saucerCup of Black Tea with Lemon Slice by Lombroso (Wikimedia Commons), Public Domain.
Black tea is often flavored with lemon.

This is achieved in many different ways. Commonly, like pictured on the right, the tea is brewed and then a slice of lemon is squeezed to add lemon juice before drinking the tea. Adding lemon juice to black tea changes the chemical composition of the tea, making it lighter in color and reducing its bitterness.

Some tea is packaged and sold with lemon flavoring added; this can be done by flavoring the tea leaves with the essential oil of lemon, or it can be done by including dried pieces of lemon peel in with the tea leaves.

Lemon flavoring for black and other teas can also be achieved with other herbs, including lemongrass, lemon balm, lemon verbena, or lemon myrtle. These herbs can also be combined with each other or with actual lemon flavoring. These different plants, although unrelated, actually have the same family of chemicals, although in different relative proportions. Their aromas are slightly distinct, but all are lemony.

About 15 years ago, out by L.A., I saw a dude outside a smoothie shop dressed in yellow hat, yellow shoes and yellow tights, wearing a lemon costume. Had he asked me for a lift, I could have handed him a bag of this tea and satisfied the request.

Otherwise, the tea is not too useful. It reminded me a lot of flavor...

It's good, but it's just a very simple lemon flavor. The black tea flavor is too weak. Tastes a little too artificial. Twinings has better lemon/citrus flavored tea's, for sure.

I really like the slightly lemon-citrus smell of the dry leaf. It got me quite excited about trying this one. The lemon flavor is fairly subtle in this, but it's well blended. It tastes like a quality version of what I've seen called Lady Gray tea before. Certainly I would prefer this over most Earl Gray's I've tried, ...

Do you like smooth, non-bitter, black tea? Do you like 7Up? Drop a tablespoon of 7Up (or Diet 7Up if you prefer your tea unsweetened), into a cup of smooth black tea, and you will do a reasonable approximation of this drink.

Basilur Lemon and Lime is not as strong as I'd like in flavor or aroma, but is an easygo...

Aroma and flavor are basically of lemon, but is kind of a neutral thing. It's not tart or sour and it never comes bitter; actually, it's kind of sweet. There are some floral notes too.
At least it's a cheap tea, I would say it's of a fair value.
