The aroma is primarily a blend of sweet oranges and sour lemon with a nice artichoke finish. The aroma of citrus always puts me in a good mood, it is like sunshine on a cold day, I smell it and I cannot help but smile.

The taste is both light and bright, it quenches the thirst and brings a feeling of happiness. A great blend of lemons and oranges, one citrus does not overpower the other, with a gentle vegetal blend of artichoke and fresh leaves. Drinking this tea is like drinking sunlight, it reminds me of summer warmth and thick vegetation. Turning this tea into a chilled tea makes for a very refreshing and bright drink for a hot day.

A very pleasant blend that is light and soothing. Only takes two to three minutes for a very flavorful and aromatic steep. Best using water of 175 to 180 degrees to get the full aroma.

Nothing poetic to say about this tea, just a very good blend that is inexpensive, flavorful and comforting!

This tea impressed me, and I'll say it is not only the only citrus-flavored green tea that I have really enjoyed, but it is also my favorite flavored tea from Adagio yet!

The dry leaf has a strong aroma of lime and citronella, but upon brewing, the citrus aroma is more subdued.

The aroma has a pleasing, grassy and corn-like aroma which follows the initial citrus. Flavor is subtle, relatively smooth. Although Adagio's description says that the base tea is from China, the base tea tastes to me a lot more like Bancha, a Japanese green tea, than like any Chinese green teas that I know. The leaf, with large, flat pieces of leaf, also looked a little like bancha to me, so I don't know if this has to do with production method?

Either way I liked this tea...the citrus blends well, and the citrus quality is more of lime than lemon, which I like both because I like lime, and because I think lemon tends to be a little over-used as a tea flavoring.

I tend to be hard to please when it comes to flavored teas, so I want to give Adagio props on this one. It is also quite inexpensive!
