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.

Disclaimer I received a free sample of this tea. All opinions in this review are honest and my own.

  1. 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.

  2. I love a good cup of tea, you can’t beat it. This sounds really nice, I’ll have to give it a try. #Brillblogposts

    • Hi Caroline,
      Thank you for taking the time to read and comment on my latest tea review. I hope can find it to give a try. You are right you can’t beat a nice cup of tea, Chloe.

  3. 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.

  4. 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 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.

  5. I love lemon and ginger tea but haven’t tried this brand before, will keep my eye out for it! I’m intrigued about the apple pieces… xx
