Pretty great! I had a house full of people stopping by the house & wanted to whip up a batch of iced tea to cool them off. This tea was just want I needed. Plus, the price was in my party budget. Everything from the color and the test was everything that I could have hoped for in an iced tea.

I’m giving this tea full marks due to its value. It’s an Aldi tea, $1.19 for a box of 20. I’ve always been a loose tea fan, but I switched to bags for work, as it’s far more convenient. I tried several upscale bags, then picked up a pack of this stuff when I was at Aldi. It tastes just fine to me. I’ve tried other brands of bagged green tea, they all seem to taste the same. For $1.19, I’ll be drinking this for a while. It doesn’t seem to be vulnerable to overbrewing, either. It’s $1.19, if you’re curious, give it a shot.

I can not find this anymore! I found few bags in my friends house, and we enjoyed it together. It was always the first flavor gone when I went to by it at ALDI. I cannot be alone! I would love for them to find it again! The best, with the second best being Panara’s green tea.

I give this tea on the high end of pretty good, preference definitly as ice tea with a bit of lemon added. It also keeps well on the stomach. I was very sick recently with the flu. I could not eat anything for 10 days, i started drinking the tea hot, it really did help me back up, nothing else would stay down but this tea( i tried others, the name brands, they were either too harsh with flavors, strong, airomatic, this one did it for me).

I have tried this a few times and it was just average in my opinion.

Subtle, slightly fruity green tea. Pleasant.

Basic black tea, really good with milk – staple tea. Not quite as glorious as the english black tea I’ve had from a friend, but still, it works for a basic black tea. :)

I used to love this when I started drinking tea, but now it’s hard to drink. Granted, now it tastes more like old tea that’s been in the cupboard for too long than anything else, but the green tea flavor that does exist is bland and there’s not much else going on.

I found the aroma better than the flavor. It’s ok, but nothing great.

Last Holiday season I bought two herbal teas from Benner. One was Candy Cane and the other Winter Spice. The Winter Spice was a real hit with my family. I was so disappointed that it was not offered this year. Why?

This tea has such a wonderful aroma that my boyfriend wishes it were bottled as perfume so he could smell it all the time! The taste is actually very mild, even after being steeped for a long time—faintly sweet with an aftertaste of fruit and flowers, and very little of green tea’s characteristic sharpness. It tastes almost like an herbal tea rather than a green.

It’s not bad but not wonderful. Bought only because I have never tried it before and it was super cheap. There is a slight fruit taste that accompanies the green tea which is nice but nothing memorable, really.

The tea is a pretty generic bagged orange pekoe; it’s filled with fine-particled tea dust and it doesn’t have much of an odor beyon a bit of the generic tea smell. The tea brewed up quite dark but I found the flavour disapointing. It was quite weak and unremarkable with a very ‘flat’ flavour profile. Maybe it was a mistake to add milk to this, as that seem to be mostly what I’m tasting.

I got a bag of (what I’m assuming is) this from the Traveling Tea Box and it’s not bad. It wasn’t marked, so I don’t know for sure if it’s orange pekoe but it’s a black blend. Pretty generic but it does the job… I’m on my second cup of the day so I wasn’t feeling very fancy this go ‘round. I’d say it’s on par with any other basic store-bought black tea blend.

I’ve made this as hot and iced tea and it is …ok. I think its much better as a iced tea with peppermint added in.

Having tried Republic of Tea’s ginger peach black tea, I had to try out this “budget” version (24 bags for $1.99 at Aldi). This was a pleasant surprise! Beware of oversteeping – I steeped maybe a tad over 5 minutes, and the black tea flavor was getting a little bitter. This had a nice ginger peach flavor that didn’t taste overpowering or artificial.

At $1.19 for 24 bags, I had to give this a try at our inaugural trip to Aldi. I didn’t really expect much, and this isn’t really anything special, but it isn’t bad. The scent is very fruity, but I didn’t really taste a lot of fruitiness in the brewed tea. I will drink more of it, but it’s not likely to become a favorite. I think it would be better iced. A better pick would be Bigelow’s green tea with mango.

Thanks for your review here! Green Tea with mango is one of my personal favorites :)

I made some more iced tea with this – as an experiment I was heavy with this tea and light on my Earl Grey Melange – and the iced tea suffered. It tasted flat and bland comparatively. Now I know – a little filler – perhaps one third – is great. Half is very good. More than half – disappointing!!!

Preparation
Iced 8 min or more

This is the tea I keep around to dye textiles, BUT I used 4 of these teabags along with 2 tablespoons of my Earl Grey Melange to make some cold brewed iced tea. It was very good!! The addition of the finer tea plus the cold brew method feature this tea to its best advantage (to be honest, I’ve never had it hot, so for all I know it makes a great cup of hot tea! Feel free to ignore me!!). I will certainly use this again to add a little filler to my iced tea!

I’m switching from soda to other drinks and this is a great diet drink.

This is a pretty nondescript, mild tea. There’s nothing wrong with it, but it really doesn’t stand out. The lemony aftertaste is reasonably pleasant.
