drank Apple Tea by Lipton
382 tasting notes

You don’t see these in vending machines very often, so I tend to get them when I see them, even though they go against my personal rule of not sweetening my teas. Despite the fact that it is totally too sweet I still drink it because the apple flavor has been blended really well with the black tea. It tastes super appley and delicious, while the black tea is still present and if it wasn’t sweetened it would probably be my favorite tea ever. But alas! It is and I’m afraid that means at LEAST 10 points docked because A. it impinges on it’s effectiveness as a quencher of thirst and B. too sweet! bleh.

That’s my chief commercial tea frustration…the assumption that everybody likes swee’tea (as they say in the south).

It’s especially annoying in Japan because they only feel the need to sweeten black tea. Why Japan, why?

Bio

I’m a Pole who grew up in Texas, is currently a graduate student in California studying Japan. How’s THAT for random?

Being Polish, my family has always drunk a lot of tea, and I am no different. I may drink more tea than water. On the other hand, I can’t say that I’m very particular about it; I’m generally pretty careless with steeping times and water temperature and I don’t even have a proper teapot (mostly because the lid broke during the move to California ;_;).

I always drink my tea unsweetened and I only add milk in the case of the most egregiously chai-ish of chais. (not really a big fan of milk in general)

Given that so many of my entries seem to be about my morning tea, I felt I should add something here about me and mornings: I fail at mornings. I fail at them a LOT. Therefore I often also fail at proper tea making in the mornings.
