Taster’s Review:

I am always just a little surprised when I come across a bagged tea that tastes great.  Now, don’t get me wrong, I’ve tasted quite a few great tasting bagged teas, but, there is always some part of me with very low expectations when it comes to bagged tea.

This is definitely a great tasting bagged tea!  The lime flavor is abundant but does not overwhelm the taste of the green tea.  The green tea base is a light-bodied, fresh-tasting green tea with very little vegetative taste to it.  It has a natural sweetness to it that offers a nice contrast to the tart and tangy flavor of lime.

The lime flavor is vibrant and refreshing.  Very clean and bright in citrus flavor with a hint of floral note in the background.  The flavor of this tea evokes images of walking through a citrus grove when its in bloom.

This is a delicious bagged tea that is just as convenient as it is tasty.  And its organic and fair trade.  Just one more thing to feel good about with Hampstead Tea!
