83 Tasting Notes
One of the local mom’n’pop Chinese restaurants serves this tea, and it’s a general oolong that is good with food. I’s pretty light and kind of tasteless, but it’s good for a mellow hot drink during winter.
This tea has a nice balance of spices and is very good with peanut butter jelly sandwiches as well as desserts. Milk and a bit of sweetener round out a very full flavor. It’s not my favorite spice tea, but it still is satisfying. It’s also certified organic and fair trade (and relatively local for me), so it’s also responsible!
Lipton is for every day, colds, coffee-drinking guests, Desi guests and family, and people who don’t fuss over froofy beverages. I personally like it with honey, milk, cardamom and cloves, especially when I have headaches and fatigue. It is the taste of home.
