Lemon Tea Bags
Brew with fresh boiling water and infuse for 3 to 5 minutes
We recommend adding lemon to many of our teas. So, why not cut out the ‘middle-fruit’ with our Lemon Tea Bags. This Tropical tasting Black loose leaf Tea is endowed with the juice of lemons and has that rich, sugary, acidic characteristic. Shining pieces of lemon peel are added to the tea to offer more depth of flavour, as well as to bolster its striking appearance.
Who could possibly say no? Better still, all this is brought to you in convenient tea bag form. This refreshing tea is harmony in a cup, and makes for a great brew on a hot summer’s day. But don’t limit yourself as Lemon Tea Bags can be enjoyed year-round, no matter the season. All packed to fresh in our Kent-based factory, this tea tastes consistently great come rain or shine.
Would you believe that no one knows the true origins of the lemon? Some believe it was discovered in the Indian tea-growing estate of Assam long before the discovery of Assam Tea itself. This, however, is mere speculation. We’ll likely never be sure. In the meantime, we do know that the first mass-cultivation of lemons took place in Genoa, Italy, during the 15th Century. At some point between then and now, lemon ‘met’ tea, and history was made. ‘When’ this happened is uncertain; ‘why’, on the other hand, is clear: its incredible taste. The Kent and Sussex Tea and Coffee Company, meanwhile, are simply proud to cater only to the finest ingredients in all of our products. Our Lemon Tea Bags are no exception. In fact, you’ll be hard-pressed to find a better tasting tea!

Health Benefits: Who would have thought that 80% of the antioxidant flavonols and flavones in the average UK diet come in a typical cup of tea? If taste comes second and health benefits come first then please consider our Lemon Tea Bags. You might be wondering why, and the answer is simple: This seemingly insignificant tea has the potential to improve your everyday way of life. First, it’s important to recognise modern scientific studies which have long established the health-promoting properties of black tea, be it scented or unscented.
A 2015 meta-analysis, for example, found that drinking just one cup of black tea a day could potentially reduce the risk of developing cancer by 2%. Those who drank the most tea, meanwhile, reduced the risks by an incredible 21%. This was, according to research, largely due to the antioxidant strength of black tea. Antioxidants have the ability to combat free radicals in the body. These free radicals are the products of human oxidation, and when left unchecked, can wreak havoc on the body. Antioxidants, meanwhile, have a beneficial impact on the body by neutralising harmful free radicals, ultimately reducing the risks of cancer. Although these studies on the cancer-fighting abilities of tea are almost entirely preliminary, this early research is certainly very promising.
