Review of Lidl Green 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. Yet for some unknown reason I tend to drink very little green tea. This is strange as it is a great tea to be enjoyed milk free so it is therefore perfect for dairy free me. I have tried a couple of brands of green tea of varying qualities. So when I popped into Lidl the other day I though that it was about time that I tried their green tea.

I liked the simple design of the packaging with this tea. It was light green with picture of a green tea leaf and the Knightsbridge logo to the top. Onto the ingredients only green tea is listed. There are there no allergens highlighted or any may contain warnings listed.

On opening the packet I was greeted by a slightly grassy meadow with subtle undertones of smokiness that I associate with green tea. This intensified slightly on my famous close up sniff test. I placed the teabag in my teacup and added my slightly cooled freshly boiled hot water. I left the tea to infuse with the hot water as instructed. The hot water soon changed to a light brown/green colour. The aroma from the tea did not intensify and remained the same, even on my close up sniff test. On sipping the tea I could taste the grassy element with the smokiness element intermingled with this. In fact the smokiness element was slightly stronger compared to other green teas that I have tried. However, it did not result in bitter flavour which I have experienced with other green teas. It was a nice light and refreshing tea. I have to admit to being pleasantly surprised by this green tea.

So would I recommend this green tea, yes definitely. I liked the delicate subtle aroma and flavour of this tea. It was a light refreshing tea. So if you fancy a milk free tea, why not give this green tea a try. So thank you Lidl for producing a refreshing green tea.

    I’ve never been a fan of any other tea other than your basic tea with sugar and milk. And even then, I don’t know the difference between Earl Grey and what have you! (I’m a poor excuse for a British person, I know!) I’ve tried different fruity teas before but no matter how much I pretended to like them, I would have rather not have been drinking them. I’ve heard so much good stuff about green tea though and how much healthier it is. Great write up, you may convince me to give it a go! xx

    Green tea has its own benefits and its a good change from a milk or black tea. I like it being refreshing.

    • June 11, 2017 / 8:42 pm

      Oh that’s a shame at least there are lots of others you can try instead.

  14. June 12, 2017 / 8:58 am

    I’m not a tea drinker but my husband loves green tea. We don’t shop at Lidl so he wont have tried this one. I’ll have to get him some if I am passing! Thank you for joining us at #sharingthebloglove

    I tried green te once hit it was so overpowering I didn’t go back again – I like the sound of this, it seems more delicate flavour, I’ll give it a go #DreamTeam

    • June 13, 2017 / 8:56 pm

      Hi, I think it may be, just don’t use freshly boiled water as it can affect the taste.

  18. June 14, 2017 / 12:05 am
