Lemongrass and green tea leaves, the ultimate combination for an ultimate green tea experience. The lemony aroma is deliciously enticing when you are preparing to make this tea. The greens both light and dark leaves are long and thin. Lemon and tea go together better than any other combination. I knew the taste this tea would provide would meet and perhaps even exceed my expectations.
Tavalon describes this tea as:
A refreshing, low-caffeine blend of mellow green tea from China and zesty Thai lemongrass. Contains the following functions, slimming, anti aging, enlightening, slimming.
A tea that does all four of those functions must be good! The light green tea was flavorful with slight lemon sweet zest. It was refreshing as a hot tea and I would imagine would be very tasty as a iced tea as well.
