Lyons Gold Blend Tea ~ 80 Bags
Lyons Gold Blend Tea. The name that Brits associate with quality Tasty Teas, Biscuits & More for Decades.
Lyons has found an exciting new way of making tea. By pressing the fresh leaves at different stages after picking Lyons capture and preserve the genuine taste of fresh tea to create a new range of teas:
A little richer than Original, Lyons Gold Blend Tea is made form high quality, full-bodied teas to give every cup a warm golden colour and a refreshingly rich, smooth taste.
So what’s the deal with tea?
Surprisingly, all tea comes from the same plant – an evergreen shrub called Camellia Sinensis. The only difference is in the way tea companies process their leaves. If teas leaves do not dry quickly after picking, they wilt and oxidize. LYONS plucks, withers, chops, dries and then blends their leaves promptly. To control the oxidation process, they dry the leaves at different stages depending on the tea type… green, black or oolong…..
What else is in it?
Tea is a completely natural product. There is nothing but wind, rain and sunshine, so the only ingredient in your cup of Lyons Tea is tea!
Where does Lyons come from?
Our tea is grown in plantations all over the world, in countries like Kenya and Indonesia. Lyons Tea picks only the freshest leaves from these plantations to use in our tea. In fact Lyons only picks the top two leaves and the bud from the plant.
How long has Lyons been around?
Lyons Tea has been blending tea in Ireland since 1902. With over 100 years experience, we’re proud to be Ireland’s number one tea brand.
What are the health benefits?
Good news! Lyons tea has lots of health benefits, proven by international research. In a nutshell: Tea contains virtually no calories(when drank without milk) and has less caffeine than coffee.
How much tea should I drink?
In Ireland, we drink up to five cups of tea per day. So that works out at an amazing 300 litres (79.25 US Gallons) of tea per person every year! As the amount of caffeine is half that of coffee, you could drink up to six cups of tea per day and it would still be considered a moderate level of caffeine.
