This rare and exotic Middle Eastern desert lime is sun-dried. It has a pleasingly tart taste and provides a hearty dose of Vitamin C.
From the far reaches of the Arabian Desert, this rare lime has been enjoyed for thousands of years, both as a spice in Middle Eastern cuisine and as a teasan. Traditionally harvested and dried in the hot desert sun, this oasis of Vitamin C has been drunk to soothe just about everything. The first taste brings a distant yet familiar impression, leaving the trace of a fleeting memory on the tip of your tongue. We find that its clean, bracing, and reviving citrus pleasure, nicely balanced with a touch of sugar, lifts the blues. Try it, you'll fall in love with it!

I love this tea! I bought a box at a coffee house some years ago and never was able to find it again. I was so glad to see it at Well.ca as I shop here for all my personal care products. I recommend it with a teaspoon of natural honey in your cup to really complement the tartness of the lime. Tastes healthy, refreshing and so yummy,

Very interesting tea. As stated by others below, it's not a "lime" flavour - not lime juice, not key lime pie, not limeade, not that kind of lime. But it does taste of what it is - dried lime, which tastes differently. Think less citrus and more herbal. Really very lovely chilled, as well. I think this makes an unusual and wonderful addition to one's tea collection. :)

I thought I would love this because it was lime based, but for me personally it is like eating the sun dried rinds they have pictured above, to me its a very rancid flavour and leaves an unpleasant after taste. Even my husband said this was a highly unusual and unpleasant tea. We both have been drinking many varieties of tea for over a decade now and this is by far our least favourite ever. We would not repurchase this especially with the many other amazing flavoured quality teas to be had on the market.

I didn't really like this tea hot (but then I'm not a huge hot tea fan), but it is VERY tasty made into a cold tea along with some fresh ginger. I used two tea bags, about an inch of ginger chopped into pieces, and a couple tbsp of honey -steeped it in two cups boiled water for a few minutes, then filled the jug up with cold water. YUM! I will be buying the tea agin just to make this recipe!
