Review of Tesco’s Lemon & Ginger Infusion Tea

I am lady who loves her cups of tea. Sometimes I can be a little naughty and find myself having a bit too much caffeine. Despite this I am still on my mission to reduce my caffeine intake continues and I am always on the look out for a new caffeine free tea to try. I tend to find lemon and ginger a nice comforting tea so when I popped into Tesco’s recently I decided to grab a box of their lemon & ginger tea to try.

I fell for vibrant orange colour of the packaging of this tea. Its swirl patterns are the same to that found on Tesco’s other fruit and herbal teas. The tea is clearly marketed as being caffeine free. I personally liked that there was no fancy description about the tea, just its flavour and that it is caffeine free.

Onto the ingredients list. Ginger (38%), dried apple, rosehip, flavourings, lemon peel (3%) and lemon grass (2%). I am always personally put off by generic flavourings and would like to know exactly what this means. There are no allergens highlighted in the ingredients list and no may contain warnings.

On opening the cardboard box foil packaging is revealed, great for keeping the teabags fresh. I was immediately hit by the aroma coming from the foil packaging once opened. There was a very strong aroma of ginger and lemon. This remained the same on my close up sniff test and was even very noticeable on sniffing an individual teabag. I was suitably impressed as with many teabags I have tried this has simply not been the case. I placed my teabag into my teacup and added my freshly boiled water as instructed. What immediately struck me was the immediate ginger aroma coming from the tea. I infused the tea with the hot water as instructed for 3 minutes. On removing the teabag there was a distinct aroma of ginger with subtle undertones of lemon noted. This slightly intensified on my close up sniff test. On sipping the tea I was initially hit with the ginger element proceeded by the faint subtle undertones of lemon. I found this tea to be comforting and soothing on my stomach and refreshing at the same time. I have personally not been suitably impressed with other Tesco’s teas that I have tried but this I have to admit surprised me.

So would I recommend this lemon & ginger tea, yes I would. I liked everything about this tea from its aroma through to its flavour. It hit the spot nicely and provided a soothing sensation to my stomach. So thank you Tesco’s for producing a lovely lemon and ginger tea.

    I think I’ve had this tea before. It was a bit too strong for me, but I know what you mean about it being good for the smell / taste test in that respect! Thanks so much for linking up with #DreamTeam.

    • May 27, 2017 / 10:03 am

      What a shame that it was a bit to strong for you. There must be a more delicate version out there to try.

    Lemon and ginger is one of my favorite flavors. I agree on wanting to know what is in my food. I don’t like citric acid. I have food and tea reviews on my blog too. I haven’t figured out a way to section them off yet, or to segregate my posts that contain swearing. It’s all mixed together for now cause I’m new. That’s going to get better. I’m glad to have found people who love tea!
