About This Tea: A refreshing lemony sencha green tea blend! Freshen up your afternoon with a helping of this beautiful lemon green tea. When you open the bag you will smell a pleasant citrusy lemon scent. This blend has straight and flat green tea leaves of different lengths broken and unbroken. It is best steeped using tea filters or a multi-use tea steeper. Once steeped, the tea is both refreshing and soothing with sweet underlying tangy tones of lemon, just right, not too strong. The aromas of brewed green tea and tingling, fresh lemon complement one another perfectly. The lemon flavor adds a subtle sweetness to this tea creation. As a green tea it has medium caffeine and serves as a nice afternoon pick-me-up. So it is best drunk during the day and not at night. It is vegan as long as milk is not added. This tea is wonderful both hot and iced cold. To bring out the lemon flavor even more consider adding your favorite sweetener. This tea, as sold, is vegetarian, vegan, and gluten-free. Try it out!
