This is the other green tea available at Aldi. I like it, and at $1.19 for a box of 20, that’s an achievement. Unlike the regular green tea, this one is a lot more sensitive to steep time. I would not recommend going past 1-2 minutes, the lemon peel tends to get a bit bitter beyond that point. High marks for value. If you’re looking for value, this is a good pick. I drink this at work daily.

This tea smells quite fishy. Low level of lemon flavoring. I truly can’t recommend it.

I bring fresh cold water to a rolling boil and left to cool slightly (about 1 minute); I take one tea bag and put this in my tea mug. Adding the water to my cup, I leave it to steep for a few minutes.

A review of Green Tea lemon & Ginseng by Benner

Water Temp: 190
Time: 3 minutes
This green tea that I fixed for myself has a lovely mixture of lemon and ginseng. It is evenly distributed in my cup of tea. The tea has no astringent since the lemon and ginseng seems to soften the tea while giving it that extra kick or do I mean zestfulness? It is yummy and good for me since it is a natural source of antioxidants.


Overall tasting notes: This is a delicate and refreshing cup of tea. I find the lemon and ginseng to be evenly distributed making for a very smooth cup of tea.

A review of Green Tea with Lemon & Ginseng by Benner

Company: Benner
Tea Name: Green Tea with Lemon & Ginseng
Tea Type/Varietal:
Region: China
Steeping Vessel/Amt Leaf:
Liquor Color: light brown
Leaf Characteristic:

  1. Steeping:

1st Steeping:
Water Temp: 190
Time: 3 minutes
I treat this tea mildly and I am not sure why. I mean I don’t allow the water to come fully boiled and to have this tea nicely hot as I tend to prefer my cups of tea.

While the tea is seemingly warmly hot, the lemon and ginseng do blend quite nicely in my cup. It is zestful like and at times I can discern the lemon from the ginseng and this makes for not having the tea as hotly as I can tolerate it.


2nd Steeping:
Water Temp: 190
Time: 2 minutes
Resulting second cup of tea is same; it is mildly lemon tea with hints of the ginseng and the astringency is not as prevalent as that of their plainly green tea.


Overall tasting notes: A good cup of zestfully clean and fresh cup of tea with hints of ginseng.

Classification: Year, and region of production; Product of China

Cup’s characteristic: green tea with little to no astringency

Liquor color: light brown

Taste: zestfully clean cup of green tea with ginseng and lemon; the lemon is more noticeable.

Leaf Characteristic:

  1. Steeping:

1st Steeping:
Water Temp: 190
Time: 2 minutes
I purchased this tea while doing grocery shopping at ALDI’s Food Market. They have begun to carry teas other than bottled or Arizona iced tea.
The price is right and the box depicts a lovely tea to be enjoyed, so I purchased it. The tea bags are individually wrapped in plastic. I take one of string tea bag and put this in my cup and adding the boiled water to my cup, leaving it to steep for a few minutes.

Tea’s color is lightly brownish and smells of green tea and when I sip of the tea, it is mildly astringent. I can honestly say that at times I miss and enjoy this flavoring when I come upon it.

2nd Steeping:
Water Temp: 190
Time: 3 minutes
I steep the tea longer with same boiled water and it smells freshly of the green leaves in the tea bag. I like the teas’ aroma and coloring I can honestly say that this is indeed refreshing; as it taste crisp with a mild astringent.


Overall tasting notes: This tea is crisp and a freshly cup of green tea that is mildly astringent. With longer steeps the astringency is more noticeable.
