Benner Lemon and Ginseng Green Tea from Aldi - A Review

This is a review of Benner brand Lemon and Ginseng Green Tea from Aldi.

I purchased this box of tea in February, 2012 from my local Aldi store because I love citrusy teas and this box caught my eye immediately. I hadn't seen this flavor before and was excited to try it out.

The tea is flavored with natural ginseng and lemon peel, and the tea bags smelled just wonderful the second I unwrapped the box.

The box suggested that I let the bag steep for 2-3 minutes, so I followed that advice and ended up with a cup of tea that was pretty watery. I could vaguely smell the lemon peel, but the flavor of the tea itself was almost non-existent.

So I tried again and let the tea bag steep for 6 minutes in a second cup.

Unfortunately it was nearly the same, just slightly less watery and possessing a light hint of tea and citrus.

I could not taste the ginseng at all, but ginseng is quite mild flavored to begin with so this was no surprise.

The aftertaste of the tea was crisp, and oddly enough, slightly stronger than the actual tea was. The second cup was also slightly stronger at the finish, most likely from the tiny bit of sediment at the bottom left by the bags.

If you like a very, very mild cup of tea that hints at citrus overtones, this would be the tea for you. But if you're looking for something stronger, keep looking.
