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.

  1. 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.

  2. ‘I thought it was rude not to give them a try’ I love this 😀 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!

  3. 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.

  4. 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!

  5. I’m a tea lover 🙂 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 🙂

  6. 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!
