Review of Marks & Spencer Organic Green Tea With Lemon Infusion

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 recently popped into Marks & Spencer and noticed that had a variety of green teas I thought it was rude not to give them a try. I decided to try their organic green tea with lemon infusion first as I do enjoy a citrusy tea.

I liked the design of the packaging with this tea. It is light green with pictures of tea leaves and lemons. To the bottom right there is a small teacup with a teabag falling into it. The tea is clearly labelled as being fair trade. Onto the ingredients Chinese green tea (96%) and lemon flavouring are listed. I personally wish that the details of the flavouring was more detailed. There are there no allergens highlighted or any may contain warnings listed.

On opening the packet I have to admit to be a tad disappointed I was greeted by the grassy aroma that I associate with green tea. I was hoping for a slightly grassy meadow aroma intermingled with a hint of lemon. This didn’t change 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 green colour. The aroma soon became noticeably different. The grassy meadow aroma intensified but this was overtaken by a strong lemon aroma. This remained the same, even on my close up sniff test. I couldn’t wait to try this tea. On sipping the tea I could definitely taste the lemon which was the predominant flavour with delicate grassy undertones noted. That said it still tasted like a nice green tea with the bonus of added lemon. This made a pleasant change to other green teas that I have tried. It was nice to experience a lighter green tea with a citrus kick. It was a nice light refreshing tea. I have to admit to being pleasantly surprised by this tea.

So would I recommend this green tea, yes definitely. I liked the citrus aroma and flavour of this tea. It was a light refreshing green tea with a citrus twist. So if you fancy a milk free tea, why not give this green tea a try. So thank you Marks & Spencer for producing a refreshing citrusy green tea.

    I’ve never tried the M&S one but I know Twinnings also does a green tea with lemon which is just delicious!! Xx

      Oh I will have to try and find the Twinings one to try. Thanks for the tip.

    I really try to drink green tea but it makes me feel sick. I think I need to try flavoured green tea more often! #bestandworst

    I have been taking organic green tea infused with lemon for quite some time now and i must say it’s one of the best things I’ve done for myself. It’s calming and very refreshing for my nerves. I hope other people discover this.

    Organic tea has numerous benefits, one of them includes detoxification of the body. I am glad to have come across this blog post!

    • August 2, 2017 / 8:44 pm

      Thank you for you kind comments and I hope that you enjoy my future posts, tea can indeed be good for you.

      • August 3, 2017 / 8:13 am

        I totally agree that tea can be good instead organic tea is recommended by nutrition specialists as well. Looking forward to your future posts

        • August 5, 2017 / 5:16 pm

          Thank you tea is indeed a great beverage.

  7. August 2, 2017 / 8:34 am

    I am more of an admirer of Darjeeling tea but it nonetheless felt good πŸ™‚ shall try out sometime soon

    • August 2, 2017 / 8:45 pm

      Hi, the good thing about tea is that there are so many varieties to try. I also like Darjeeling. If you try this tea please let me know what you think.

  8. August 2, 2017 / 8:44 am

    I drink green tea often. I haven’t tried other Brands. I should try them.

    • August 2, 2017 / 8:46 pm

      Hi, what brands do you drink? Can you recommend any that I should try? Thanks.

  9. August 2, 2017 / 9:16 am

    I am rather a tisane drinker than tea. My husband strongly belive what a cup of tea can make to you. If I have headache he says ” go drink a cup of herbal tea!” or if I am stressed “drink this tea it will calm you!”!πŸ˜‚ Tea is solution for all the health problem accordinf to him.

      Hi, it’s amazing what a nice cup of tea can do πŸ˜Šβ˜•οΈ.

  10. August 2, 2017 / 11:35 am

    I am a boring black tea drinker and love it but I might give green tea another go with lemon infused, it sounds very refreshing for summer and I would love to have that box in my kitchen

    • August 2, 2017 / 8:47 pm

      Hi, there’s nothing boring about black tea. This tea sure is a great tea for the summer. If you decide to give it a try please let me know what you think.

    I love green tea! It has so many health benefits and I love to drink it plain.

    • August 2, 2017 / 8:48 pm

      Hi, I’m a recent convert to green tea I wish I had discovered it sooner.

  12. August 2, 2017 / 1:46 pm

    ‘I thought it was rude not to give them a try’ I love this πŸ˜€ anyway, thanks for the review, I’m always at the lookout for the best green tea, yet so many turn out to be a failure!

    • August 2, 2017 / 8:49 pm

      Hi, yes it can be. A little hit and miss sometimes with green tea. If you try this one please let me know what you think.

  13. August 2, 2017 / 2:11 pm

    I do look forward to your tea reviews! I have to admit, I dislike green tea- I’ve tried it with fresh lemon, with other flavours (I think there was a toffee apple one if memory servers) and I just couldn’t get over that initial “grassy” smell and taste that you noted.

    I legitimately enjoy your tea reviews πŸ™‚ great review once again!

  15. August 2, 2017 / 4:12 pm

    I find green tea can bit a bit of hit or miss with me. I’ve had a green tea and lychee one before which I liked by cant remember the brand. I really like the PG caramel and pear fruit tear – calming and tasty!

    • August 2, 2017 / 8:51 pm

      Hi, I’ve also found the same with green tea. Oh I need to find this PG tea and give it a try as I’m intrigued by the combination of flavours.

  16. August 2, 2017 / 5:02 pm

    Wow.. Another article with A tea review πŸ™‚ . I’ve tried green tea. It’s doesn’t taste that awesome good but It is really good for health.

  17. August 2, 2017 / 6:16 pm

    I’m a tea lover πŸ™‚ and I often drink green tea but I prefer the “natural” green tea without any flavor. I have tasted authentic Oolong Tea during a trip in China and I brought back 1 kilo at home πŸ™‚

    • August 2, 2017 / 8:52 pm

      Oh I think I may have taken some home with as well I bet it was lovely.

  18. August 2, 2017 / 6:44 pm

    I bet the lemon taste is so refreshing. Nice for the morning. Thanks for sharing with #bestandworst x

    • August 2, 2017 / 8:52 pm

      Hi, yes it worked well with the green tea and indeed a great tea for the morning.

  19. August 2, 2017 / 7:26 pm

    Love green tea, especially in the morning.

    • August 2, 2017 / 8:53 pm

      Yes it sure is. I should really have more of it in the morning.

  20. August 2, 2017 / 7:55 pm

    I love green tea but am always looking for something with a twist. I’ve tried green tea and jasmine but never with lemon. Will have to try. Both are great for weight loss.

    • August 2, 2017 / 8:54 pm

      Hi, the two flavours seem to work well together I was surprised. I need to try a jasmine tea, is there any that you recommend? Thanks.

      • August 3, 2017 / 4:11 am

        I am a big fan of Tea. thanks for sharing your review. worth a try….

  21. August 2, 2017 / 9:45 pm

    Oooh, I’m not a lover of green tea, but I may have to give this a go. I wonder if my pre-teen would like it. He loves both green tea and lemon. #bestandworst

    • August 4, 2017 / 10:36 am

      Hi, I’m not sure I would have I liked it at that age but worth giving it a try. Please let me know what he thinks.

  22. August 3, 2017 / 4:24 am

    This would be perfect for Arnold Palmers. One of my local restaurants serves a green peach iced tea that is absolutely wonderful. Haven’t been able to find a comparable alternative, but this will hopeful be a close second!

  23. August 3, 2017 / 4:56 am

    it is good for health, thanks for review

    • August 5, 2017 / 5:17 pm

      Hi, yes you just can’t beat a good cup of tea.

    • August 4, 2017 / 10:37 am

      Hi, yes they have quiet a large range of teas. It’s worth popping if you can to give them a try.

  24. August 3, 2017 / 7:31 am

    I love this. I literally live for tea. It is like my glass of wine at the end of the night. great review/

    • August 4, 2017 / 10:38 am

      Hi, I would rather have a cup of tea than wine, and a lot less calories as well 😊.

  25. August 3, 2017 / 8:09 am

    It sounds lovely with a citrus kick. We enjoy a good cup of green tea must go and try the M&S version! Popping over from #Sharingthebloglove x

    • August 5, 2017 / 5:17 pm

      It sure is nice to have a citrus kick to a tea. If you try it please let me know what you think.

    • August 4, 2017 / 10:40 am

      Oh, good luck with the switch. If you try this tea please let me know what you think.

  28. August 4, 2017 / 6:16 am

  30. August 4, 2017 / 7:55 pm

    I do love a good cup of tea. This sounds a lovely change to the normal brew. #bestandworst
