Review of Knightsbridge Peppermint Tea from Lidl

On my quest to try a variety of teas I thought that I would give these peppermint teabags I found in Lidl. You can get a variety of both fruit and herbal teas in Lidl so hopefully I will slowly progress my way through their range. You get forty peppermint tea bags in a small box costing 99p. Now that’s quite a bargain if I might say so myself. On checking the ingredients on the back of the box each bag contains 100% peppermint. The instructions advise that you should leave the teabag to infuse for 3 to 5 minutes.
On opening the box I wasn’t hit by a fresh aroma of mint. This didn’t put me off and I hoped that perhaps the aroma would start to appear once the teabag infused with the water. The hot water took a while to change colour going the expected green / brown colour. On tasting the tea I was disappointed by the lack of both the mint flavour and aroma. It was pretty weak, bland and non descriptive. I then tried doubling up the teabag quantity to ascertain if this improved both the taste and aroma. It did a little but still I remained disappointed.
These teabags are bargain at 99p for 40. However, I wouldn’t personally recommend them as I felt that they lacked in both taste and aroma. I believe these are both important when enjoying a nice cup of tea. Sorry Lidl I won’t be be buying these again.
