Tg Green Teas

Tg Green Teas is the inspiration of Dr Hua He a qualified doctor, who grew up fully aware of the benefits of green tea and Sophia Nadur, who worked in the corporate food and drinks sector.   As a team they have a wealth of knowledge, about the goodness that teas, fruits and botanicals have on the human body.

Tg Teas are a member of the Ethical Tea partnership, a non commercial alliance of international tea companies, ensuring social and environmental sustainability.   They have won many awards including Best Wellbeing Tea 2017 in the Beauty Shortlist Awards and 3 Gold Stars in the 2015/2016 Great Taste Awards.

Tg Teas make a range of organic green and iced teas, which have no preservatives or additives and are seeking organic certificates, so future pouches will carry EU Bio and USDA accreditation and I was lucky enough to be sent samples.

The bottles, caps and labels are recyclable and made from 20% recycled plastic, but they are looking to have a biodegradable bottle by 2018.   They are looking for more sustainable packaging and looking for even better ecofriendly solutions and with the teas being brewed and packed in the UK, their carbon footprint is low, compared to many competitors.

So on to the taste, well I have never had iced tea and was a little hesitant if it would be my thing, but I loved the mandarin and ginseng.   The tea is so invigorating, with lovely herbal and citrus undertones, not sweet at all and perfect whilst riding on my turbo trainer working up a sweat and needing some refreshment.

The tea leaves are packed in pyramid bags, in non transparent pouches to ensure the fresh clean taste is preserved, as green tea deteriorates once exposed to light.   I am unclear as to the material composition of either the bags or pouches and was unable to find this information on Tg Teas website, maybe they could let me know, so I can update this review.

The teas are delicate, light and not as strong as many green teas, which are sometimes a little astringent, but Tg Teas are more refined.   I offered the green tea to our neighbours, when they called round and they loved it, personally I loved all three flavours, especially the ginger and lemon zest.

I love my tea and am drinking more and more herbal and botanical teas and Tg Tea are certainly a great product, with excellent environmental credentials and well worth a try.
