drank Japanese Cherry by Tea Palace
15 tasting notes

Any green tea flavour is annihilated by the overpowering artificial cherry. Quite like diluted cherry essence for baking. Extraordinarily pungent. Not great.

drank Lemon Shimmer by Tea Palace

Astringent with a chemical lemon taste. Bitter aftertaste after 3 minute steep.

Chemical lemon…. that can’t be healthy!

chompy

Certainly doesn’t taste healthy.

God bless ‘sample’ sized tins.

I’d give it away but I don’t want to inflict it on anyone else.

Mellow, fruity, refreshing and addictive green tea.

I’m not really a green tea person, but I’ve been trying recently to “get” the appeal of green. This has certainly helped.

Preparation

The first jasmine tea I’ve tried. It is also the last.

The one good thing about getting this tea was discovering I really, really, really don’t like Jasmine.

At least I know to avoid it in the future.

Not rating it since my dislike of jasmine is hardly a factor in whether or not this is a good jasmine tea.

This won’t discourage me from blindly buying teas online though.

To me, this sounds like a wonderful tea. I’ll put this on my want list for Santa to bring me. Lee

drank Formosa Oolong by Tea Palace
15 tasting notes

This is a very good oolong. The taste is deep and rich with only one teaspoon in the pot. It is also delightfully sweet, despite being an unflavoured variety. Not at all bitter.

drank Green Tea with Citrus by Lipton
15 tasting notes

I’m rating this as the soft-drink that it is. As a soft-drink, this is great. Very refreshing.

Cofftea

I wouldn’t consider this a soft drink at all. It’s simply bottled presweetened tea. Now their sparkling tea is more soft drinkish, but I’d still qualify that as tea as well.

chompy

I have tried sparkling tea before but never from Lipton. It was a Darjeeling tea with lemon sold in Japan. I wouldn’t recommend it.

I know from experience that the tea Lipton sell here in the UK differs greatly from the ice tea they sell in Japan (the British variety being more fruit with hints of tea and the Japanese tea with hints of fruit). I can’t speak of the American variety having never tried it.

The main reason I consider this (or at least, the British version of this) a soft-drink is because it is incredibly sweet and fruity and the only tea it contains is “tea extract” at a fraction of one percent.
