Review of Lidl Lemon & Ginger 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. I am really enjoying my quest to find new caffeine free teas to try. One of my favourite flavours has to be lemon and ginger. So when someone at work decided to bring a box of Lidl’s lemon and ginger tea into work I asked if I could try it. Of course the answer was yes.

I loved the design of the packaging with this tea with its bright and vibrant yellow background with a picture of lemon and ginger to the bottom. The tea is described as being warming and zesty. This won me over. I do love a nice comforting cup of tea in the autumn as the nights start to draw in.

Onto the ingredients this surprised me a little if I am honest. I know that it is a less expensive tea but didn’t expect there to be so many ingredients in addition to the lemon and ginger. That said there were no allergens highlighted or any may contain warnings listed. On opening the box I was immediately hit with the aroma of ginger. That said this wasn’t too strong. I was unable to really smell the citrus element to this tea. On my close up sniff test this aroma didn’t intensify and remained the same.

I placed the teabag in my cup and added my freshly boiled hot water. The hot water soon changed to a pale yellow colour. I left the tea to infuse with the hot water as instructed for between 3-5 minutes. I left mine to infuse for 5 minutes as I personally like this type of tea strong. What was interesting with this tea was its aroma. Initially I could predominantly smell the ginger with a subtle undertone of lemon or I would prefer to describe it as citrus. However, as the tea continued to infuse this changed to a predominantly citrus aroma. On sipping the tea its flavour matched its aroma. I was personally surprised by this. Despite ginger being the predominant ingredient it tasted more citrusy. My taste buds initially seemed to get hit by lemon followed a subtle hint of warming ginger. This was the third lemon and ginger tea that I have tried and trust me I have tried a few where the lemon has been the dominant flavour to the tea. This made a pleasant change as sometimes I find the ginger to be a little too strong and overpowering. I enjoyed this tea it was refreshing yet soothing on my stomach at the same time.

So would I recommend this tea? Definitely. It was nice to have a lemon and ginger tea whereby the citrus element was the predominant flavour. This made for a refreshing tea. I shall be buying this tea when I next visit a Lidl store. So thank you Lidl for producing an enjoyable everyday value lemon and ginger tea.

    Gorgeous photos that make it look very appealing, brings back too many morning sickness associations for me though so I’d have to try another flavour. #TwinklyTuesday

      Gosh not a nice association. I have found it a little hit and miss with their teas.

    I bought this tea last week as we’re all suffering from colds in my house. I was so glad of this cheaper alternative to the more expensive brands I normally buy. Well done Lidl x #MixItUp

    I love tea too. I have to admit that I’m not a fan of ginger, so I don’t think this would be one of my favourites. But I do absolutely love that packaging! Thank you for joining us for the #dreamteam x
