Is there caffeine in tetley green tea with lemon*

Review of Tetley Green Tea with Lemon

published by Caru 07/06/2005

Advantages Rich in Anti-oxidants, convenient

Disadvantages Can be weak, not a flavour to suit everyone

Green is Good!

I have recently discovered that 'normal' tea and caffeine in general seems to have rather an adverse effect on my body I have got a rather nasty caffeine intolerance which raises my blood pressure and can also make me feel rather dizzy and in rare cases (after a strong cup of coffee) can make me feel extremely paranoid, sick and in need of a long lie down!

I love a cup of tea - there is nothing more soothing then settling down on a comfy armchair with a cup of steaming tea and maybe a choccie biccy or two I was more than a little upset that I would not be able to partake in this little pleasure anymore I decided to set about finding an alternative

Wandering along the tea and coffee aisle in my local supermarket, I glanced at the fruit teas Now, I have tried fruit teas before and despite leaving the tea bag in for ages and squeezing as much as I could out of it, I have never found them to have much flavour To be honest, they have always tasted of what I imagine lukewarm dishwater to taste like Yuk!

I was feeling a little despondent by now about the idea of replacing my tea with dishwater, when I saw the neatly packaged Tetley Green Tea with Lemon The packaging looked appealing and bright, and being as it was advertised as a 'New' product, I thought I would bite the bullet and give it a go

From my supermarket, it cost 99p which I thought was fairly reasonable for 25 tea bags On getting home, tired from pushing an unmanageable troley around a crowded shop, the first thing I did was put the kettle on On putting the teabag into the cup, I waited three or four minutes and then examined the colour It was quite a dark green colour and the fragrance was light and subtle: quite lemony, but with an underlying scent of tea leaves The scent was refreshing, but what would the taste be like?

On first sip, my impression wasn't great It seemed weak and watery, but wait for it there was something emerging from my tastebuds Could it be flavour?? Yes it was! At first it seemed weak and insipid, but then a mellow and flavoursome taste of lemon and green tea swims into your mouth The flavour is still subtle, but I found myself quite enjoying the lightness It tastes almost summery, perfect for sunny days in the garden Unfortunately it does not combine as well with chocolate biscuits!

Tetley Green Tea with Lemon is not the sort of drink for winter evenings, it is not the hug in a mug that you get from a cup of steaming hot PG Tips However, I have found it to be a worthy alternative, and one that I have incorporated into my daily diet It is rich in anti-oxidants and contains no artificial flavourings - the only ingredients are simply Green Tea and Lemon Peel

You do have the option to add honey or sugar to sweeten the taste, but my preference is on its own - just with boiling water I leave it to steep for about 3 minutes and then that's it Nothing could be simpler

I would recommend this product to anyone who wants to vary their tea drinking habits or who want to cut down on their caffeine intake It will not be for everyone, and I am not convinced that it is better than normal tea, but it is refreshing and relaxing, and on a busy day, you cannot get better than that!
