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

I wanted to ask if these particular tea bags have string attached to them?

KittyLovesTea

No they do not have string attached. They are just a plain tea bag.

Bio

I’m 30 years old from Leicester, England named Kayleigh. I have a wonderful husband called Richard whom I am very lucky to have in my life.

I started off many years ago drinking herbal and fruit teas which over time peaked my interest in trying new types. Eventually I began to import and sample many different teas and cultures which I still do today. My life goal is to try as many teas and ways of having tea as possible.

Tea wise my cravings change constantly from pu erh one month to jasmine green to the next and so on.

I adore cats and have six of my own called Cassie, Mr Sooty Pants,Ivory Ruby, Lady, Misty and Ollie.

I also have two fish tanks which thankfully my cats have no interest in. They house an array of tropical fish and shrimp.

I am a proud vegetarian and have been for the majority of my life. When I say vegetarian I mean just that as well, no fish or seafood, no chicken now and again, no animal products such as gelatine and cochineal.

I also enjoy watching Japanese Anime and horror films.

I am always up for tea swaps so if you see anything in my virtual cupboard then please contact me.

A short list to help swapping with me easier though honestly I am not fussy and am willing to try anything. Plus the notes below are usually, sometimes I love a tea that has an ingredient I tend to dislike and other times I hate a tea that I thought I would love.

Likes: Any fruit but especially melon and orange, vanilla, all tea types (black, green, white etc), nuts (any), flowers, ginger, chai.

Dislikes: Licorice, aniseed, clove, eucalyptus, lavender.

My rating system
I have my own way of rating teas that makes each one personal. I have different categories, I rate each tea depending on what it is made of. For example: I rate green teas in a different way to black teas or herbal teas. So black, white, green, Pu Erh, Rooibos, Oolong, blends and tisanes all have their own rating system. That way I can compare them with other teas of the same or similar type before for an adequate rating. And when I do give top marks which is very rare I am actually saying that I would love to drink that tea all day, every day if possible. It’s a tea that I would never turn down or not be in the mood for. So while I agree that no tea is 100% perfect (as nothing is) I am saying that it’s as close as it comes to it. After all, in my book the perfect teas (or close to perfect anyway) are ones that I could drink all the time. That is why you will find a high quality black or Oolong will not have as high a score as a cheap flavoured blend, they are simply not being compared in the same category.
