Some sachet from family cupboard. Apparently from Lidl store, and apparently good ingredients. Just tea and mint. Nothing more! Great job guys.
I woke up with headache, my brain is still processing yesterday incident on railway I was, unfortunately, involved in. My train did not stop at stop signal and endangered another train which my train should let pass. Who knows what was the reason, there was a major thunderstorm, maybe the engineer checked wrong signal, maybe it did not brake correctly because of the water on rails, but luckily, there was no crash. The second train (the endagered) was way lighter so it brakes much better. If we were 10-20 metres further, second train did not stop, I would be injured at least. Oww.
I used too hot water but it does not change it much. It is really minty, refreshing, and tea base is present too. It is not top-notch green tea, it is rather like some hay only, but that is okay.
Good considering the price. And I really enjoy the ingredients. Only mint and tea. Why to add something else?
Flavors: Hay, Mint
Nice aroma of lemon peel, melissa and grass-straw notes from the green tea.
A lot of lemon peel in the taste, solid portion of melissa and strong green tea body.
Pretty good for a cheap market-brand tea.
Flavors: Grass, Herbs, Lemon Zest, Straw
Oh, already 8 am? I woke up hour and half earlier. Meh.
Slow start of the day. And simple tea. Just a tea bag of green tea. At least it is with lemon.
+- 90°C water (I know, I know), 3 and half minute steep. Cloudy, yellow-green liquor.
In aroma it is really lemony. Bit like lemon juice. And on taste? It is similar. And bit of bitter aftertaste. I oversteeped it? I used too hot water?
In conclusion – for the price fair tea. There is bit of grassy notes, but – not so much. Much more lemon tastes, lemon peel taste too. Maybe it is actually kind of nice surprise it was not so bad.
Song pairing: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=353_cCFOi00
Unfortunately in Czech; it is song for czech para-hockey players. I am afraid that nonewhere will be translation. But I love it!
Flavors: Grass, Lemon, Lemon Zest
Prepared in thermos as I was in hurry and I had to leave. So bit unusal review.
Basic green tea, which is almost unnoticable, followed by fresh orange flavour and and little bit of spicy – probably ginger.
For the price it certainly makes the job, warms inside – as there is ginger, but dominant orange flavours which made this tea nice and mellow. Nothing extra, but better than expected.
Flavors: Ginger, Orange
Nice combination of subtle orange and grassy/straw notes of green tea, with delicate honey flavour in the background. Warming and refreshing.
In taste the base green tea (not bad for a tea bag) is dominant. The gingery spicyness is almost nonexistant, orange notes are subtle.
Not bad, but I expected more.
Flavors: Ginger, Grass, Honey, Orange, Straw
I received this bag of tea from a tea swap (well it ended up being a tea swap) on reddit. Between the purple wrapper and the fact that my husband got to haul out his rusty German for the translating, I knew this was going to be fun.
These artificial flavors are really taking me back to my childhood lately. This bag smelled like that 80s and 90s grape flavor that was everywhere until manufacturers started realizing that no one but I liked grape flavored things.
Brewing it up, and it’s red. Red red. I’m pretty sure this is an herbal tea from the smell and color, but my first taste pretty much confirms it. Although there is no cranberry in this tea according to what I looked up, I’m pretty sure I’ve just brewed up a cup of hot Ocean Spray unsweetened cranberry juice, complete with the sour dryness on the back of the palate that you get when you drink unsweetened cranberry juice.
Some sugar fixed me right up, and now I’m happily sipping away at my hot cranberry juice. There aren’t a lot of non-caffeinated teas that I like, but this is surprisingly one of them.
Flavors: Astringent, Cranberry, Fruit Punch, Grapes, Pleasantly Sour
Dark red colour.
Aroma dominated by hibiscus with only a bit of orange, quite bland and one dimensional.
Slightly sour in taste, with distinct hibiscus notes and nice ginger spicyness.
Generally not bad for a fruit tea, but it definitely should be called “Hibiscus & Ginger”…
Flavors: Ginger, Hibiscus, Orange Zest, Sour
One bag, in a variety of others, was gifted to me from someone out of my country.
I found it pleasantly aromatic and flavorful. The ginger was not overwhelming at all. I very much enjoyed it and hope I can find more somewhere.
Flavors: Ginger, Orange
I really loved it. It’s the strongest green tea (after gunpowder) I ever tasted. You can feel both green tea and vanilla flavours, even if the second one is more present as after-taste. I usually drink green tea in the morning or in the afternoon but I tried this one after dinne and everything was perfect :)
Colour: Honey Coloured
Smell: Very vanilla scented and reminds me of the strong vanilla candles you can burn.
Taste: It has the light, fresh yet slightly bitter taste of green tea but it is very much in the background as the vanilla is powerfully dominating. Pleasingly different but at the same time extremely strong. The vanilla tastes like vanilla pod so it has the thickness of real vanilla (instead of a subtle flavour like synthetic vanilla).
One of the strongest green tea’s that I have tasted, I will drink this mostly as an afternoon tea as I find the vanilla very relaxing while at the same time being strong enough to keep me awake.
