Review: The Bathing Garden's Lemon Tea Party

Like I said, I am obsessed with The Bathing Garden. One of my favorite scents from her, in general, is her lemon scent. Shannon seems to have a knack for anything lemon scented.
Lemon Tea Party is no exception.
This scent from The Bathing Garden is absolutely incredible! Not only is it strong as far as the lemon note goes, but it's strong on the tea note, too! Sometimes I feel like, in an effort to get the citrus scent just right, some wax almost or completely misplaced the tea note entirely. This isn't *quite* London Calling from Bath & Body Works, but it's pretty dang close! The lemon note here isn't a bakery lemon, it isn't a cleaner lemon, it's just good ol' fashioned citrusy lemon, freshly zested style! I really love this scent. 2 cubes of this scent gave a medium strong throw for over 8 hours in a 24 watt hot plate warmer. I will absolutely, positively repurchase this scent! So, so good.

The Bathing Garden's Lemon Tea Party
Cold Rating7.5/10; very nice balance between the tea note and the lemon note. Both enhance each other well.
Lit Rating: 8.5/10; about a point better warmed up! This is so insasnely good!
Throw Rating8.5/10; amazing throw, very "sticky" in the air (it stays long after it's dumped out).
Overall Rating8.5/10; wonderful! Reminds me of fresh lemon slices in black tea. Tea parties. Christmas tea. Keurig. Pants.

    1. I'm really not sure where the general progression from keurig to pants went, but I cosign it. ;)

  2. You are the cutest! <3

    I also love this blend from TBG, although I think London Calling has a slight edge over it.

    1. Agreed about London Calling (I really am obsessed), but this is a runner up for sure. It's so great! :)


  3. Your word association craked me up! This is one scent of hers that I always want to try but when the lists come out or back in the Etsy shopping days, never made it in may cart. I need to remedy that. Waiting patiently for payday on 15th to score some TBG tarts. Glad to see you like this one! Back on the list it goes!

    1. You should definitely request it in her group page. Maybe when the holidays are over, she will make this one for us! Whatcha planning on ordering?! :)
