Review of PG tips Lemon & Ginger Herbal 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 was doing my weekly shop on Ocado I noticed that PG tips lemon & ginger herbal infusion tea was on offer. So I decided to order a box to give it a to try.

I loved the packaging it is the same as all of the other PG tips tea that I have had. It has a picture of a cute monkey to the back and pictures of tea leaves and orange and yellow circles to represent the lemon and ginger. There is also a comment is a about the zestiness of this perky tea’s citrus and spicy notes is sure to put a spring in your step.

Onto the ingredients list. Ginger (30%), apple, rosehip, chicory, cinnamon, orange peel, liquorice, flavourings, lemon peel (1.9%). 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.

As with all the teas in the fruit and herbal range each box contains 20 tea pyramids. I like the design of these nifty pyramids they are designed to allow the tea to infuse easier with the hot water. I personally leave all my fruit and herbal teas bags or pyramids in my cup to allow it to continue infusing with the water. If you choose not to do this the pyramid has a nifty string attached resulting in easy removal from the cup.

On opening the cardboard box I was immediately hit by the aroma coming from the packaging once opened. There was a very strong and pleasant aroma of ginger and lemon. This remained the same on my close up sniff test and was even very noticeable on sniffing an individual pyramid. I was suitably impressed as with many teas that I have tried this has simply not been the case. I placed my tea pyramid 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 5 minutes. On removing the pyramid there was a distinct aroma of both ginger and lemon noted which was eveningly balanced. This slightly intensified on my close up sniff test. On sipping the tea my taste buds were hit with what I can only describe as an equal or the same balance of flavours from both the ginger and lemon. I found this to be a very pleasant change as often it is one flavour that dominate so to have an equal balance was great. I found this tea to be comforting and soothing on my stomach and refreshing at the same time. I have personally not always been suitably impressed with PG tips other teas that I have tried but this I have to admit surprised me.

would I recommend this lemon and ginger tea? Yes I would. I liked everything about this tea from its aroma through to its flavour. It was a nice refreshing tea which also provided a soothing sensation to my stomach. So thank you PG tips for producing a lovely lemon and ginger tea.
