Yesterday my parents picked me up for lunch as it had been a while. Our first stop was at Lidl because apparently they had some vouchers so I had a look around and spotted their tea selection, my eyes immediately spotted this pear and apple tea. It’s only a tea bag but it sounded refreshing and I thought it was good for iced tea in the coming summer.

This morning it is my breakfast tea, it sounded particularly nice this morning and I needed to try it out anyway. The bags smell lightly fruity and sweet but not very strong.

Once steeped the aroma is fairly strong and smells of pear and apple, it’s very clean and pure smelling. Much nicer than I anticipated given the lack of scent in raw bag form.

Flavour is medium strength with some sweetness, apple and pear tones (which I can distinguish from each other) and a level of cream in the after taste. Tastes like fruit flavoured water that’s gone warm from being left in the sun. It’s nice but I would say standard in terms of fruit tea flavour. The bag is a little dry and it’s not as juicy or fresh as loose leaf would have been, but I think it will meet it’s purpose and do well as an iced tea.

Don’t get me wrong, this is nice and the flavour is there, I just find something missing.

Flavors: Apple, Cream, Pear, Sweet

drank Lemon and Ginger by Knightsbridge
1263 tasting notes

Currently in an AirBnB in Limerick, Ireland, and this is the non caffeinated option for the morning. It’s bright and cheery, although I get little ginger out if it. Mostly lemon in the background, and a thickness I can’t place. Won’t go out of my way to have this again. Still a nice cup.

Can’t add any details on my phone, so boiling water, one tea bag, 12 oz cup, rating of 70.

Flavors: Lemon, Thick

Preparation
1 tsp 12 OZ / 354 ML

I only spent a few hours in Limerick though I did see their team play at hurling semifinals at Croke Park.

drank Camomile by Knightsbridge
119 tasting notes

Icky. I’m not a huge fan of chamomile, and this is just standard, low-quality chamomile in teabag form. It’s from Lidl, though, and quite cheap, so I guess if somebody actually liked chamomile (which Frankie does, for some odd reason), and was looking for some herbal teabags, they’d be okay with these. Probably quite happy, even. I know Frank drank most of these without a peep.

Plain chamomile will likely never be for me.

Sipdown! (9/203)

Preparation
Boiling 2 min, 30 sec
