Simply the best!

Absolutely lush tea, as an avid follower of the 'lemon in every tea type and flavour' school, I was delighted to discover Simply the Zest. It's fresh, tangy, but not too 'tart' of a taste. I still sneak in a thin slice of lemon, but that's just habit of many years! It brews well even if left in for too long. Smells lush and with some honey in, is the perfect blues-buster on a cold, rainy, grey afternoon!

Also - getting the song get stuck in your head every time you make a cup of tea is certainly a bonus! ;-)

Good breakfast tea

Pretty good tea, it has a simple citrusy taste and fits very well as a breakfast tea. I personally would have liked a stronger citrus taste though


Fresh fruity kick in The morning

Perfect Tea for a hot Morning in The sun. Love to Drink it at The Pool or in The Garden. It tastes like Summer! I Drink it Cold brewed in water.


Black tea with a twist

Love the citrus twist in this black tea. It's perfect for an afternoon pick-me-up. Everyone's tried tea with lemon, so the orange and tangerine in this one make a refreshing change.


Gorgeous citrus and floral notes

I got some of this tea to try as I generally like anything with citrus and/or rose in it, and I was not disappointed. This tea smells lovely, and when I add a little milk, it has a comforting citrus taste offset by rose. It's a good all-rounder tea no matter the season.

For any other Australians who like The Tea Centre's Stockholm Blend, this tea is very similar (though probably leaning more towards citrus rather than floral)....Read more


Bright and cheerful!

This is lovely and bright, really refreshing and enjoyable!


Zest Is The Best

Woah, this tea is awesome! I tried it, thinking that I wouldn't really like it, but how wrong I was. It smells as good as it tastes and it looks gorgeous whilst the tea is brewing. It has a lovely, clean citrus taste that isn't too overpowering - its just there in the background. A friend and I had this with an afternoon tea, and it went particularly well with our cucumber sandwiches.


Great tang

Orange really is the new black! The zesty orange gives this black tea a nice kick for your morning cuppa.


Cheerful chiller

I used to be a fan of Lipton Lemon iced tea, and was sad about having to give it up do to sugar content. Then I tried this little wonder, which is a much deeper and varied flavour. Then I tried it warm, and was dismayed to find that I could only taste a non-specific black backed with a mild citrus tang - this is why I didn't give it full marks.


Gorgeous tea! Super helpful staff..

Gorgeous tea! Super helpful staff.. needed advice and used facebook to ask.. she was a gem xx thank you!


Very warming and a bit peppery

I was sent this as a free sample with my order and wasn't sure if I'd like it but I had it with milk and it was very warming. It didn't taste orangy at first but then the taste breaks through. It actually tastes quite peppery and warming. Nice to curl up with on the sofa on a chilly evening
