Numi Dry Desert Lime Tea

Having tasted and enjoyed some of Numi's other teas, especially the mint, I came across this variety. I like lime, and enjoy it in various Thai dishes and as a refreshing drink, so I thought that this tea, made from dried lime, would be interesting. The limes that are dried come from the Arabian desert, where they are traditionally harvested and dried in the hot desert sun. The smell of it steeping does not remind me, nor others, of lime, so it is a little disconcerting, but the taste definitely does, and is well worth it, despite the incongruity.
