Twinings Lemon and Ginger
Advantages: Tastes nice, affordable, good alternative to caffeine
Disadvantages: Individually wrapped tea bags is not good for the environment
Its hard to know where to start when buying herbal teas, this one is a great beginning to the new healthy you.
Lemon is a great soother for your throat when you are ill and mixed with a little honey can help you to get your voice back a little bit faster. This tea contains lemon and ginger, the ginger gives you a little bit of energy and makes your insides feel cleaner. The lemon helps your throat and if you add a squirt of honey then that is the medicinal bit for me.
The tea bags come seperately packaged to keep them fresh. Its a little bit of a waste of materials but it makes it look expensive and therefore look great in your tea cupboard or out at a tea party. The box is yellow and very summery looking, it has a tearaway section at the base so if you stand the box up the tea bags come out easily.
The tea bags are quite small, with a string attached so you can attach that to the mug then leave it in the water to stew. You can leave the bag in whilst drinking. The longer you leave it, the stronger the taste.
This mostly tastes of ginger, with a hint of lemon, the ginger can taste almost unbearably strong when you first try it, but you soon get used to it. The water stays watery and because theres no milk you dont have to worry if you are allergic to lactose to drink it.
Its caffeine free but I find it gives me a similar effect to caffeine and stops me getting a 'caffeine headache'. I have found that it replaces my usual daytime cups of tea apart from the morning wake up one. Twinings is an expensive brand but I had a free sample to start with and I now try and source the cheapest place to buy it. Tesco usually has some offer on.
Try this if you have a sore throat, need energy or want to replace caffeine.
Summary: Try them and see!
