• They provide a tart balance to the sweetness. I prefer a slice of lemon in my tea as well.

  • The tongue is a fine tuned instrument designed to taste and differentiate 6 different tastes...sweet, sour, bitter, salty and umami. Really yummy foods will most often combine 2 or more of these tastes to make the food a real party in your mouth.

      Why? Do you think lemons make cakes and sweets taste unbearably sour? Would Sammy Davis Jr's lemon pie been half as groovy if they did? Lol:)
  • I disagree. To me sweetening them destroys their natural flavor.

      Have you ever tasted fresh lemon? I did once when I was about 7. It wasn't an experience I'd forget in a hurry. Lol:)
