Another fruit tea review! I often buy the lemon and ginger Twinings, which I really enjoy, but spotted this lemon zest version in the supermarket, which I've never tried before. With it being summer, I was hoping for something zesty and refreshing. It certainly looked very summery with lovely bright yellow packaging and the attractive picture of the lemon segment.
Opening the box unusually didn't provide a very strong smell. Usually Twinings and fruit teas in general are heavily and intriguingly fragranced but only a light lemon scent could be detected.
However, with fruit teas it's ultimately about the taste. The tea was pretty subtle and a little underwhelming. It wasn't watery or weak to its credit and has a nice lemony zest that is light, mild and refreshing.
Compared to some other Twinings I've had though, it didn't really 'wow' me. It tasted nice but ultimately you could probably get the same effect from just putting a slice of fresh lemon in a mug of hot water!
Available: Major supermarkets
Pros: Healthy, light, refreshing
