Surprisingly good rooibos
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. This is a lovely desert tea with a subtle lemon taste. It really does remind me of lemon cake. I like this green rooibos much better than the red rooibos I've had before.
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.
My Utmost FAVORITE Tea!!!
I tried the 1 sample I received in the mail and I was instantly hooked on this tea! That same day I ordered some plus a refill supply. To me, it is a delicate tea yet very flavorful. It tastes just like moist lemon cake with the creamy lemon filling. I like it plain just as it is. A pleasant surprise after a meal or for afternoon tea.
Enjoyable with Ginger Snap Cookies
I loved the sample I received with the Catalog, much to my surprise because lemoney desserts are not my preference. This tea was light and "comforting" and especially good with ginger snap cookies (dipped..yum). The lemon is not sour but sweet and light.
Mild lemon flavor, but tasty
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.
Not Enough Flavor
I tried to like this tea, but it's too weak. There isn't much flavor. Doubling the number of tea bags and pouring it over ice actually makes the taste worse, not better. The tea is bearable hot, but I would not recommend iced.
I was really craving lemon when I ordered this and was severely disappointed once I tasted it. I can taste the vanilla and coconut distinctly. But have not yet found a steeping time that is long enough to distinguish any lemon flavor. I LOVE ROT, but this was a miss for me.
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 is one of my favorite teas, and definitely my favorite of the "cake" teas (blueberry bundt, caramel cake). Tastes sweet and lemony, and health wise. I love the green rooibos.
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. To me it tastes like sweet creamy lemon. I find that if you want a more intense flavor from this tea adding a bit of sweetener and milk or cream to it really brings out the flavor beautifully.
I love lemon cake and I could not wait to try this tea. Unfortunately, the flavor is extremely weak. Doubling the tea bags helps, but it is still an extremely subtle flavor.
This one is dull
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.
A rare RoT miss
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 drink a lot of tea, but my daily routine is to end the day with a cuppa and this has quickly become an absolute favorite. Sweet, fragrant and yummy without the calories associated with the dessert. I do let it steep for a couple minutes to make sure the lemon flavor is stronger. LOVE!!
I am a HUGE fan of lemon pastries, be it lemon cake with lemon icing or those lemon creme sandwich cookies. This tea, with it's blend of lemon, vanilla, and coconut (with the help of a spoonful of Truvia) tastes just like those cookies, but without the calories. 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.
smells stronger than it tastes
The tea is a bit too weak for me.Very mild flavor. Vanilla stands out the most. I think it would rock as a flavored black tea. If it was Fair Trade, even better.
Love this Tea
Mmmmm....this tea is so delicious. It reminds me of my favorite dessert of lemon bars.
Amazing lemon flavor. Very smooth and tastes like lemon meringue pie. A great dessert tea. Not tart like typical lemon teas. This is one of my favorites.
This is a lovely tea (and I'm re-ordering), but for me it's not lemony - it evokes popcorn! I have it in the afternoon/evening as more of a savory option, and follow it up with my favorite Strawberry Chocolate tea for sweet.
I can smell the cake in front of me!
Amazing! How did you do it? This is the most outstanding tea ever. Love it!
lemon chiffon dessert
Sometimes I get a craving for lemon bundt cake and this will satisfy my taste buds. I prefer to drink this hot with vanilla or sweet creamer!
Satisfies my sweet tooth
This tea evokes lemon bars, coconut cake, yellow cake, even cheesecake. Really tasty and appropriate for a dessert tea or a morning tea. My only qualm is that the overall flavor is very light - I wish it were a bit stronger. I'll try brewing with only 6oz of water next time.
My 11 year old can't get enough of this tea!
This tea has a lovely lemon flavor and smells delicious! One evening after dinner as I was making myself a cup my 11 year old daughter caught a whiff and asked if I would make her a cup to try. She takes her tea with a bit of honey and a dash of cream - one sip and she was hooked. She now asks for a cup almost every night!
Another amazing tea! You can absolutely believe you're tasting lemon buttercream frosting! The vanilla notes are too strong for my personal taste -- I prefer to get walloped with my lemon, and I'm not a vanilla fan. But that doesn't alter the fact that this tea is a delightful surprise.
This has become my all-time favorite lemon tea! It has such a lovely flavor of lemon with a hint of coconut. The taste is just perfect and doesn't need any sweetener at all. It's a great tea if you need a bit of a mood booster!
I drink A LOT of tea. Mostly I prefer it iced but I drink it hot from time to time. This tea is delectable either way. Might be my favorite of all time
Light and sweet lemony flavor
Lemon teas are often too bitter and strong for me. This has a nice and light lemon flavor. I don't taste any coconut, but my guess is that it's the coconut sweetness that mellows out the lemon bite.
I was very impressed with this tea. I was honestly expecting a very light vanilla and lemon flavor, but I got more than I bargained for. Definitely a new favorite, and I will certainly be back for more! Since this was the first time I have ordered from Republic of Tea, I am impressed with the quality. I also ordered the caramel vanilla flavor as well, which was equally tasty.
Love this tea!
Recently discovered this yummy tea & now I always have a tin of it on hand! It's my preferred tea when I want a cup during the work day. Try it with a touch of vanilla flavored creamer - it's divine!
More Coconut than lemon
It's okay, though I think it should be called coconut creme pie or something. I don't taste lemon at all=(
Lemon Chiffon Cuppa Cake tea bags
I cannot believe how good this tea is!! The smell and taste takes me back to my Mom's lemon meringue pie! I don't even need milk or sugar because it is divine the way it is.
Lush, lemony, and cake-like.
A Warm Cup of Cake!
This herbal tea really tastes like cake (how do they do that?). I love that the aroma and flavor notes stay the same through the brewing time and the entire time of drinking. If my cup or bag sits for awhile, the aroma is still that of a lovely piece of cake.
Lemon Chiffon Cuppa Cake tea bags
This rooibos tea is delicious. I had been drinking plain green rooibos tea from another company, when I came across the republic of tea company. I ordered this tea, and WOW, it reminds me of my Mom's lemon meringue pie, only without the calories or caffeine.
Yummy Dessert w/o the Calories
This tea is my new favorite. I received it for a gift this weekend and have already ordered refills. It's like a lemony dessert in a cup - no sweetener needed. So delicious!!!! I love that it's decaf because I'm a nighttime tea drinker. Hoping this flavor never disappears.
Love this Lemon
Lemony, creamy with a hint of vanilla...a perfect late night snack without the guilt...love,love LOVE IT!!!!
This tea is the best I've ever had and my new obession. The lemon is a light flavor and reminds me of what a lemon pie would smell like. I appreciate the lightness of this tea and wouldn't change a thing.
My first step is to open the container and savor the lush aroma of this lovely tea. Immediately, I am transported back to my childhood and the aroma of birthday cakes baking in the kitchen. Actually drinking this lovely tea is equally pleasurable. This has definitely become one of my most treasured teas.
The best late night drink!
I was in the market for a non-caffeinated tea that i could sip in the evening. But i also wanted a yummy tea. This really is exactly what i was looking for. You get sweet lemon, not sour lemon. Hints of vanilla and coconut. It really tastes like cake, especially when you add a little cream and sugar. So delicious!
The light lemon paired with sweet coconut is a winning combination. I think I detect a touch of vanilla too, which adds to the delightfulness. I never thought green rooibos could taste this good!
Lemon with a hint of zing.
Very tasty, but not very strong
Very yummy lemon cake flavor with a very mild cocnut flavor. I love the taste, but i feel that the tea itself was pretty weak. i've had to use 2 tea bags at a time to get the robust flavor i was looking for. Otherwise it's perfect!!
Lemon and Coconut Heaven
A divine dessert tea that combines my two most favorite pairings--lemon and coconut. No added sweetener needed as this tea is perfect as is...just a bit of milk and it is heaven without the calories! Yummy, yummy goodness!!!
Good, but I expected a bit more lemon flavor. I enjoy it hot or cold with a squeeze of lemon.
This was better than I thought it was going to be! Tastes like cake! Mmmm!
I would like to preface this with the fact that I am not a big fan of rooibos teas. However, this tea is wonderful. It has a great, mild taste of lemon and coconut. I really enjoy it and will buy it again. If you like these flavors you should consider purchasing this tea.
Very nice blend, I could taste vanilla and lemon cake. I add some almond milk and a bit of honey, it was heaven.
This is a very soothing tea. I most enjoy this in the evening after dinner with a shortbread cookie. It needs minimal to no sweetening in my opinion. You can definitely detect vanilla notes although I think it needs a little more lemon in it. A very good tea.
