As a lady who loves who loves a nice cup of tea I am always on the constant lookout for new brands to try. So when I was lucky enough to get the chance to review Tetley Super Teas I couldn’t wait for the parcel to arrive. On opening my parcel I was greeted by three four of tea each of which contained 20 teabags. The first tea I choose to review was the lemon and ginger mainly because I love this flavoured tea and it is perfect for the colder months.

Super Fruits Lemon & Ginger

I liked the design of the packaging with this tea. It has a bright and vibrant yellow background with a pictures of lemons and ginger surrounding a teacup. Above this in bold letter is the word immune with the phrase helps support your immune system underneath. On the back of the packaging the tea is described as being a lemon and ginger fruit infusion with added vitamin c.

Onto the ingredients this surprised me a little if I am honest. I didn’t expect there to be so many ingredients in addition to the lemon and ginger. Rosehip, hibiscus flowers, apple, ginger root (10%), orange peel, sweet blackberry leaves, natural flavourings. Liquorice root, vitamin c (1.5%) and lemon peel (1%) are listed). There are no allergens highlighted or any may contain warnings listed. On opening the box I was immediately hit with a subtle aroma of ginger with a hint of lemon. On my close up sniff test this aroma didn’t intensify and remained the same. It weakened slightly on smelling an individual teabag.

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. Onto the aroma 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. Despite ginger being the more predominant ingredient it tasted more citrusy. My taste buds initially seemed to get hit by lemon followed a subtle hint of warming ginger which seemed to have a soothing effect on my stomach. I personally preferred this I can find ginger to be a little too strong and overpowering. So would I recommend this tea? Yes I would even though the majority of the ingredients to this tea were overtaken by the lemon and ginger it really didn’t matter on this occasion. I enjoyed this tea it was refreshing yet soothing at the same time. Did I notice any benefit to my immune system? I’m afraid not.

Super Fruits Blueberry & Raspberry

I liked the design of the packaging with this tea. It has a deep purple background with a pictures of blueberries and raspberries surrounding a teacup. Above this in bold letter is the word boost with the phrase helps reduce tiredness and fatigue underneath. On the back of the packaging the tea is described as being a blueberry and raspberry fruit infusion with added b vitamins.

Onto the ingredients this surprised me a little if I am honest. I didn’t expect there to be so many ingredients in addition to the blueberries and raspberries. It seemed to be never ending. Hibiscus flowers, rosehip, orange peel, apple, natural flavouring, roasted chicory root, liquorice root, blueberry (1.0 %), raspberry (1.0 %), vitamin B Complex (1%) nicotinamide, pantothenic acid, folic acid, vitamin B2, vitamin B6, vitamin B1, biotin, vitamin B12, mannitol (wheat). There is one allergen highlighted which is wheat. There is no may contain warnings listed. On opening the box I was immediately hit with a subtle aroma of hibiscus and apple with a hint of raspberry. On my close up sniff test this aroma didn’t intensify and remained the same. It weakened slightly on smelling an individual teabag.

I placed the teabag in my cup and added my freshly boiled hot water. The hot water soon changed to a deep purple colour. I left the tea to infuse with the hot water as instructed. Onto the aroma I could predominantly smell the hibiscus intermingled with a hint of raspberry and hint of apple. I was unable to smell the other elements to this tea and was hoping for a hint of blueberry which was a shame. On a positive note the liquorice root didn’t overpower the other ingredients to this tea which is important to me as I can personally find this an overpowering ingredient and has impacted on the aromas of other teas that I have tried. On sipping the tea it was just like its aroma. The hibiscus took centre stage. It was definitely a hibiscus tea with undertones of raspberry and apple noted. It was a shame that I was not able to taste all of the ingredients to the tea especially the blueberry. So would I recommend this tea? I am sorry but the answer is no. The hibiscus just seemed to take centre stage with both the aroma and flavour. This is a shame because I do like a raspberry based tea and was looking forward to enjoying it intermingled with blueberries. Did I notice any benefit to my energy levels or metabolism? I’m afraid not.

Super Green Tropical

I liked the design of the packaging with this tea. It has a deep purple background with a pictures of pineapple and mango surrounding a teacup. Above this in bold letter is the word immune with the phrase helps support your immune system. On the back of the packaging the tea is described as being a flavoured green tea with added vitamin C.

Onto the ingredients list green tea(88%), natural pineapple flavourings with other natural flavourings (5%), vitamin C, natural mango flavouring with other natural flavourings (1%), There is are no allergens highlighted in the ingredients list and there is no may contain warnings. On opening the box there was an aroma of a grassy meadow which I associate with green tea undertones of what I would describe as being like a tropical fruit squash. On my close up sniff test this aroma didn’t intensify and remained the same. It weakened slightly on smelling an individual teabag.

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 from the tea intensified only slightly even on my close up sniff test. On sipping the tea I was able to taste the subtle grassiness with the pineapple and mango taking centre stage. All of which made a surprisingly light and refreshing tea which I would certainly recommend. Did I notice any benefit to my immune system? I’m afraid not.

I left the tea to infuse with the hot water as instructed. The hot water soon changed to a light green colour. The aroma of the tea intensified as the tea infused with the hot water. There was a faint grassy aroma with subtle but stronger aroma of mint noted. On sipping the tea I could taste both the delicate grassy and mint elements to this tea. It was nice to experience a lighter green tea which had the bonus of subtle mint flavour. It was a nice refreshing delicate tea that somehow had a nice soothing and comforting effect as I drank it. I would certainly recommend giving this tea a try.
