Benner Tropical Flavored Green Tea + Lemon Ginger Herbal Tea + Peach Flavored Rooibos Herbal Tea

Aldi carries a basic stock of teas year round, including English breakfast tea, green tea, and a basic black tea. Aldi is also known to sell some good specialty teas as limited buys at different times of the year. I’ve purchased chai, candy cane, and cinnamon spice tea during the winter. I’ve found peach lemon tea, berry green tea, and breakfast blend black tea during the summer, along with a watermelon strawberry mint tea. Sometimes Aldi also sells various premium flavored green teas.

My favorites in recent years have been the Aldi floral teas sold in the spring, and the flavors usually include an English rose black tea, a jasmine green tea, and a raspberry hibiscus tea. I especially like the English rose black tea and the jasmine green tea and have been known to buy multiple boxes to stock up.

This year, Aldi appears to be offering different flavors of floral teas. While they don’t look like floral teas in terms of some of the ingredients, my Aldi receipt called them floral teas. I picked up a tropical flavored green tea, a lemon ginger herbal tea, and a peach flavored rooibos herbal tea. (I still really hope Aldi brings back the English rose and jasmine green teas.)

Benner Tropical Green Tea, Lemon Ginger Herbal Tea, and Peach Flavored Rooibos Tea

Benner Tropical Flavored Green Tea, Lemon Ginger Herbal Tea, and Peach Flavored Rooibos Tea each cost $2.29 for a box of 20 individually wrapped tea bags. This is the first time I’ve seen Aldi sell these specific tea flavors.

These teas are all Aldi Finds, which means they’re only in stores for a short time. Aldi does not offer online ordering for products that aren’t in stock at your local store.

I initially tried all of these teas served hot, but they’d all be equally good served in iced tea form.

Read on for more information about each tea flavor.

Benner Tropical Flavored Green Tea

Ingredients are green tea and natural flavor.

It’s not clear exactly what tropical flavors this tea is supposed to have, although I smell and taste notes of pineapple. If the illustrations on the box are any indication, this seems to have pineapple and passion fruit flavoring. I like this tea. It has classic green tea flavor with just the right amount of fruity zing.

All green teas contain a small amount of caffeine, so that’s something to be aware of with this tropical flavored green tea.

To brew hot tea, bring fresh cold water to a rolling boil. Let water cool for 1 minute, then pour 8 ounces of water over a tea bag and steep for 1-2 minutes. Remove the tea bag and serve with sweetener if desired.

For iced tea, bring fresh cold water to a rolling boil. Let water cool for 1 minute, then pour 4 coups over 3-5 tea bags and steep for 1-2 minutes. Remove the tea bags and pour over ice-filled glasses. Serve with sweetener if desired.

Benner Lemon Ginger Herbal Tea

Ingredients are ginger, lemongrass, rose hip, lemon verbena, natural flavor, lemon peel, licorice, and citric acid.

This has a good lemon and ginger scent, and I can taste the ginger and lemon flavors. It’s a nice soothing tea good for any time, but it could be especially good if you’re feeling under the weather.

This tea is caffeine free.

To brew hot tea, bring fresh cold water to a rolling boil. Let water cool for 1 minute, then pour 8 ounces of water over a tea bag and steep for 3-5 minutes. Remove the tea bag and serve with milk and/or sweetener if desired.

For iced tea, bring fresh cold water to a rolling boil. Let water cool for 1 minute, then pour 4 coups over 3-5 tea bags and steep for 3-5 minutes. Remove the tea bags and pour over ice-filled glasses.

Benner Peach Flavored Rooibos Herbal Tea

Ingredients are rooibos, natural flavor, and hibiscus.

Rooibos is caffeine free and is an herbal tea not related to green tea or black tea, and it can be a good alternative for people wanting to avoid caffeine. This particular tea from Aldi has the classic rooibos flavor I’m accustomed to, with the addition of mild peach flavor. It’s not overly fruity, with just a hint of peach.

To brew hot tea, bring fresh cold water to a rolling boil. Let water cool for 1 minute, then pour 8 ounces of water over a tea bag and steep for 3-5 minutes. Remove the tea bag and serve with milk and/or sweetener if desired.

For iced tea, bring fresh cold water to a rolling boil. Let water cool for 1 minute, then pour 4 coups over 3-5 tea bags and steep for 3-5 minutes. Remove the tea bags and pour over ice-filled glasses.

The Verdict:

Benner Tropical Flavored Green Tea, Lemon Ginger Herbal Tea, and Peach Flavored Rooibos Tea are new floral teas Aldi is selling as limited buys this spring. They’re all good and we wouldn’t hesitate to buy any of them again. Still, we’d love to see Aldi bring back some of the floral teas they’ve previously sold in the spring, including an English rose black tea and a jasmine green tea.
