Review of London Tea Company Zingy Lemon and Ginger Tea

As a lady who enjoys her cups of tea on a daily basis I am always on the lookout for new teas to try. I am really enjoying my quest to find new caffeine free teas to try. So when London Tea Company contacted me and I asked if I wished to try some of their teas I said yes. One of the samples they sent was a zingy lemon and ginger tea. I saved it until the new year to try as part of my quest to really reduce my caffeine intake.

I liked the design of the packaging with this tea. It was bright vibrant orange with picture of the logo of the London Tea Company in the style of a table and chair. On top of the table is a cup of tea. Simple yet clever. Onto the ingredients this surprised me a little if I am honest as apple pieces are listed as the first ingredient. There are there no allergens highlighted or any may contain warnings listed. It is also labelled as being suitable for a vegan diet. On opening the tea I was immediately hit with the aroma of apple with faint undertones of ginger and lemon. This surprised me although apple was listed as the first ingredient I expected the teabag to smell of lemon and ginger, not apple. On my close up sniff test this aroma didn’t intensify and remained the same.

I placed the teabag in my cup and added my freshly boiled hot water. The hot water soon changed to a pale misty style yellow/orange colour. I left the tea to infuse with the hot water as instructed. I could predominantly smell the ginger with a subtle undertone of lemongrass. The apple aroma seemed to disappear. On sipping the tea my taste buds initially seemed to get hit by lemon followed by a warming ginger. This made a pleasant change as sometimes I find the ginger to be a little too strong and overpowering. I enjoyed this tea it was refreshing yet soothing on my stomach at the same time.

So would I recommend this tea definitely. It was nice to have a lemon and ginger tea whereby the ginger element was subtle and not too strong and slightly overpowering. The combination of the lemongrass and ginger worked well together. This made for a refreshing tea. So thank you London Tea Company for producing an enjoyable lemon and ginger tea.

    I learned to love ginger after long years of resenting the taste of it in things people served me. But years ago I was baking apple pies and the recipe told me to use some apricot marmeaade and to my horror stem ginger syrup.

      Hi, ginger in tea can be an acquired taste, but it works really well with lemon. Thank you for taking the time to comment on my latest tea review, Chloe.

    This packaging is really striking! And I’ve never seen a tea with apple pieces in it! This sounds like the perfect alternative to the caffeine-free staples of camomile, mint, etc.

      Hi Emily, a few of the teas I have tried have contained apple. It’s a great caffeine free tea to try in addition to the regular staples, Chloe.

    Ah this is great! I really love Rituals’ ginger tea but sometimes it’s a bit overpowering so it’s nice to know there is one like that 🙂 xx

      Hi, I will have to take a look at Ritual’s tea to give it a try when I need that extra kick. Thanks for commenting and the recommendation, Chloe.

      Hi Natasha, thank you for taking the time to read my latest tea review. As it’s not a strong ginger tea it may be worth trying. I’m glad you like my teacup it was a gift from my mum for my blog, Chloe.

      Hi Charlotte
      I hope that you find this tea to try it’s not the first tea I’ve tried that’s had apple pieces in it. An interesting but nice twist, Chloe.

    Ooh that sounds lovely! Interesting that it’s got rosehip in too, this sounds perfect for when you have a cold.

    I tried ginger tea when I was pregnant as I heard it helps with morning sickness but unfortunately it wasnt for me! #marvmondays

      Hi, that’s a shame. I’ve found that the strength of the ginger can vary greatly between various teas.

  10. February 9, 2017 / 7:31 am

    This sounds lovely! I love ginger tea but haven’t had it with lemon before – I might give it a try! #marvmondays

      Hi, lemon and ginger work really well in tea you should give it a try, Chloe.

    • January 2, 2018 / 8:51 pm
