Review || Williamson Tea*

A couple of weeks ago I was approached by a lovely staff member from Williamson Tea who wanted to see if I’d like to try the new flavours of tea. TEA? Of course I accepted and what I got in the post was very different to what I expected. Three new flavours of tea Lemon, Ginger and Mint. I also got a beautifully decorated tea tin which was pink with words and patterns scrolled across a giant elephant, inside was breakfast tea.

I decided it might be fun to get my grand parents involved in this review as I think we all have different tastes in tea. So here’s what I, Daniel (Grandad) and Helena (Grandma) thought.


Me: I love lemon so this was nice and refreshing, however as lemon is bitter it did leave me with a bitter after taste, which was a little unpleasant but I enjoyed it. I thought it could of done with more lemon.

Daniel: *Sip, Sip, Sip, Sip* We could tell he liked this tea before he said anything because he continued to sip. He thought it was pleasant but it wasn’t his favourite.

Helena: Also likes lemon flavoured things in everything but also adds a sweeter to every tea we tried. This was her favourite out of the flavoured teas but she wished the taste was a little more prominent.


Me: Tasted like normal tea with just a hint of ginger which was actually not too bad. I am ginger but I don’t necessarily consume it on a regular basis so this was new.

Daniel: This was his favourite, he liked that it was black tea with a hint of something which caters more to his tastes.

Helena: Thought it was something a little different but continued to sip while we discussed, not a favourite but she deemed it tolerable.


Me: I’m not a huge fan of green tea, so when I saw this I was a little anxious about how it would taste. I didn’t enjoy this at all, although it smelled gorgeous it didn’t taste like this at all.

Daniel: Tolerable but didn’t enjoy it.

Helena: Spat it out as soon as she sipped it. She’s not a fan of green tea or mint so this was completely the wrong combination for her.

Nylon bags

These teas actually come in triangular Nylon bags which I’ve never seen or tried before. I thought it was amazing being able to put loose leaf in them but still have a tea bag. 

Breakfast Tea

Me: As ‘normal’ tea is my favourite with milk and sugar this was obviously going to be my favourite out of the lot. Ok, so I’ve tried loose leaf tea at a tea room before and you CANNOT beat loose leaf tea, however this breakfast tea came pretty close as I felt like even with milk and sugar it kept it’s taste, plus I’m in love with the tin.

Daniel: Delicious!

Helena: Refreshing and tasty.

I may purchase the lemon and breakfast tea again for myself, especially because of the beautiful tin the breakfast tea comes in! It’s pink and has an elephant on, what is not to like?

Do you like tea? What's your favourite flavour?
