Green tea is one of my favourite everyday drinks, so I was pleased to see that Dragonfly Tea have added three brand new flavours to their Green Tea family.
I've been drinking Dragonfly Teas for a number of years now and I always have a healthy stock of their delicious organic teas in my cupboard (their Cape Malay Chai, a yummy spiced rooibos, and the Morrocan Mint green tea are firm favourites of mine). I have to admit that I was initially disappointed when I saw that their new range of Green Teas weren't organic, but after comparing them to other brands on the market, I can see that they've tried to be more competitive price-wise, and sadly there will always be a premium that you have to pay for organic goods. At least this way as a consumer, you can choose which range to go for.
So there are three flavours to this new Green Tea range and I've had the pleasure of trying out each one. All of the teas come in standard unwrapped, square size tea bags, and you get 20 bags in each box.
Dragonfly Tea Berry Green* (20 bags, £1.60, link)
86% Green Tea blended with Summer Berries flavouring and a touch of natural Vanilla extract. Really like this one as the berry flavouring gives the green tea an overall sweetness and it tastes as good as it smells. I'd recommend this one for anyone who doesn't like strong green tea as it's quite light and refreshing.
Dragonfly Tea Citrus Green* (20 bags, £1.60, link)
Citrus Green contains a higher percentage of Green Tea (94%) that has additions of natural Lemon flavour and Bergamot Citrus flavours. It's very uplifting and zingy! Great for first thing in the morning and works well as an iced tea on a hot summer's day too.
Dragonfly Pure Green* (20 bags, £1.60, link)
Just pure Green Tea as the name suggests with nothing else added to it. This makes a high-quality cup of green tea that's strong and flavourful, but not bitter or harsh as it has a nice smoothness to it.
Available from a wide range of supermarkets including Tesco, Waitrose, Sainsburys, Ocado as well as John Lewis, Holland & Barrett, Whole Foods, Planet Organic and direct from dragonflytea.com
