Lovely light flavor, best in place of a dessert. The sweet vanilla "icing" flavor overpowers the lemon. Delicious but could use a bit more lemon zing.

I hate to leave a bad review (I love this company), but this tea was a huge disappointment. It smells of lemon, but the taste is very, very weak IMO. I felt as though I was drinking hot water. I unfortunately would not recommend this tea to anyone.

I was honestly really surprised at how much this tastes like lemon poundcake. It even has a butteryness to it, which I don't even understand how is possible to create in a tea. The lemon is very present but not overwhelming. I will definitely be repurchasing after I finish. Perfect guilt-free dessert tea.

This tea is delightful and delicious! It does smell and taste like vanilla chiffon cake with lemon frosting and shredded coconut. It's amazing that ROT got these flavors into a tea! I love it, plus it's caffeine free and calorie free. The flavors are neither too weak nor too strong -- I find them just right, and it doesn't need anything added. A lovely dessert tea!

I like this tea but I am not sure if I would buy it again any time soon, on the fence with this one. It is more "chiffon" than lemon and I don't taste the coconut at all. I taste vanilla strongly. I added a teaspoon of lemon juice. I drank it straight down with the tsp of lemon juice. It's a very pleasant tea, but one I would tire of for awhile after a whole tin. Maybe I should KEEP a tin of it on the shelf though even after the full tin is gone because I do think this is one I will go back to, just not daily once I exhaust my cravings!! LOL does that make sense??

I admit that I became addicted after just one cup. I make it hot in the morning, but rarely have time to finish the cup, so I pour the rest over ice for the drive to work.

You really need to use several bags to taste anything lemon cake-like. Once you do, it is a nice cup with a sweet taste. I don't add anything but I won't buy this one again because of using so many bags to get proper flavor.

I love vanilla, and I love lemon, can't go wrong with this tea. This tea is a little light for me, but smells very good. It leaves a light scent of cake "aftertaste" in your mouth as you drink it. I personally prefer the caramel cuppa cake tea as it is more strong in favor, but this is really good too. Great for someone looking for a light tea.

Distinctly lemon grass, not lemon

3 Stars Distinctly lemon grass, not lemon

from WA on wrote:

I was disappointed in this tea. I bought it after reading the reviews noting the vanilla flavor. Yes, there's a bit of vanilla and coconut, but the predominant flavor is lemon grass, reminding me more of Thai green curry than lemon chiffon cake. A better balance of flavors could retain a hint of lemon without screaming "lemon grass" which is a truly different flavor.

I am not normally a fan of rooibos, but I decided to try the sample of Lemon Chiffon green rooibos that I was sent. I was very pleasantly surprised.

I don't get any lemon flavor from this tea at all. It has a nice flavor, and it sort of smells like a lemon cookie, but the flavor is profoundly vanilla. I bet if you put a slice of lemon in it, it would taste just right.

I received a sample of this in this month's catalogue. I don't usually like lemon teas because I find them too tart, but this one was mild. I love red rooibos and had never had the green variety, but I think that the green rooibos is what gave this tea a tasty base. It was a bit weak, overall, but I think it's a perfect before bed cuppa.

from CA on wrote:

This tea has a sweet lemony flavor as opposed to a tart one, and really is reminiscent of a lemon cake. (And it's sweet without a honey flavor, which while I like honey and lemon together, I associate too much with medicine.) Weirdly, I saw one reviewer who felt it was flavorless and preferred the "gingerbread cuppa cake" - while I really like the taste of this and thought the gingerbread had no flavor. Taste is a strange thing I guess. It would be nice if all the teas had samples available, but anyway, for me I don't regret buying the full size and I'm getting a refill today.

This tea is so delicious and perfect for dessert, or when I am craving something sweet. I love this tea on its own with nothing in it. Like others have said, it does have a very light flavor to it.

I am a huge fan of Republic of Tea. Their service and variety are top notch. So know that this comment is specific to this particular flavor. It falls flat. There is nothing distinguishing about it at all. It isn't awful, it's just OK. Shrug. I expected to really taste and feel the lemon, and I was disappointed. If you want a delicious Cuppa Cake variety, go with Caramel Vanilla. That one is wonderful and flavorful, and I highly recommend it. I can't recommend this one.

I order a lot of tea from RoT, but this one was a miss for me. I'm surprised at all the positive reviews. This tea is almost flavorless, even when doubling up on tea bags. Squeezing a sliver of lemon into water would result in way more flavor than brewing this tea does. I very much wish the Ginger Bread Cuppa Cake tea would return, as I liked that a lot, and it had a lot of flavor.

I am a HUGE fan of lemon pastries, be it lemon cake with lemon icing or those lemon creme sandwich cookies.

I also like that it's caffeine-free, so I can enjoy it in place of dessert after dinner without worrying that it will keep me up all night. After my first purchase, I immediately bought a refill pack as I'm going through it like crazy, especially with this early cold weather snap we're having.
