drank After Dinner Mints by Clipper

A different taste for a mint tea that is not bad at all, is not my kind of tea but I’ve to say that it’s just a different way to drink a mint tea if you have ever try a peppermint tea.

The taste is nothing special just like another cheap and normal cup of tea, is not too bad for an everyday tea but there’s a lot of better options to consider.

drank Love Me Truly by Clipper
3 tasting notes

I’m usually not that fond of herbal infusions but this one is amazing. The flavour is rich and spicy but has a soft, round sweetness. The scent reminds me of a pumpkin spice syrup I bought at a market last fall.

I must add that liquorice root in itself makes me gag, but in this tea it’s well balanced. The fennel is noticeable but not overpowering.

Flavors: Cinnamon, Fennel Seed, Ginger, Natural Pumpkin Spice Flavor, Spices, Sweet

Preparation
175 °F / 79 °C 5 min, 45 sec 8 OZ / 230 ML

Having drunk PG nearly all of my life this last year or so been trying other ‘everyday’ tea bags available from supermarkets, pretty much all of them! I drink my tea with milk and 2 sugars always, I’ve searched for reviews and this site comes up often for help, anyway I love this tea so much so its worth a quick review! not tried the fair trade one yet just this organic version, I know its pretty expensive in comparison with other teas but I’m a huge fan, just don’t seem to get the bitterness in this like others and defiantly has a freshness taste about t -maybe the lack of bitterness? always leave the bag in for 3-4mins with a good stir, works well for us, even blind taste testing the missus she picks this :)

Welcome to Steepster! If you have any questions/comments, the discussion section is generally great although a little broken right now. It does update. Eventually.

Quite pleasant and relaxing. Has a grassy, slightly tangy flavour. After having read many reviews that mention “bitterness” I was expecting a different taste – but there was no bitterness at all. It has a nice smell out of the box as well.

Flavors: Grass, Herbs, Tangy

Strong astringency note. I’m impressed with the overall flavour considering this is a bagged tea. I would maybe try to infuse for a shorter amount of time in the future. Dry hay note.

Currently, this is my favorite herbal. I brought it back from England, so that’s why. Good memories. It would be nice to find someplace that sells it here, I like it.

What’s my friends’ favorite herbal teas? I think I am on the prowl for something good for when I run out, if I can’t find this.

Flavors: Hibiscus, Pineapple

My favorite herbal is Butiki’s lavender chamomile…but that’s a whole different ballpark from a strawberry rhubarb.

This is one of the teas I picked up in the UK back in May. This is one of the few herbal teas that 1. I enjoy hot, and 2. doesn’t taste like wet washrag! Yay!

I brewed it up, added a bit of sweetener, and am sipping it down, enjoying each sip.

While it was steeping, I took a stroll outside to take a peek at the supermoon. I saw no capes. But it was nice and 14% brighter than average :)

drank Clipper Organic Chai by Clipper
449 tasting notes

This is a very clove-y chai, which gives it a kind of dry mouthfeel. I didn’t put any milk in it this time (let alone make it the good stovetop way—too hot), but I think this could definitely stand up to it next time. It’s not bad but the clove does take over a bit.

My boyfriend and I bought a box of this when we were in England in January. He didn’t really like it, so I brought it to work with me. It’s a good basic green tea – smooth and bright.

Just bought this tea today in a pop-up store in Madrid. I´ve longed to try Clipper tea for a while, and the raspberry – a wonderful fruit I cannot get enough of – decided! Made myself and my husband a cup, and the strong raspberry fragrance from the tea bag fades when the tea is steeping and in the final taste very little of the raspberry remains. It´s not bad, but I would ´ve preferred to get a bit of raspberry in the final taste. Enjoyable for the rest.
A funny thing I saw : the English label says to"pour water over the tea bag when it´s still boiling", while the added label in Spanish advices to boil the water, leave to cool for 1 minute and then add tea bag. Can someone please explain why there is this difference??? ;-)

Flavors: Raspberry

I wrote to Clipper Teas on Facebook, and they confirmed the instructions indicated on the box for this tea in question; the Spanish label seems to correspond to the instructions for the white tea w/o fruit additives.

drank White Tea by Clipper
1181 tasting notes

I’ve been trying to figure out why Clipper teas, with organic and fair trade credentials, cost about half as much as Pukka, also from the UK and also boasting organic ingredients. Clearly Pukka employs a team of graphic designers and artists for their packaging, and they also spend a lot more on marketing text. But are the teas (also in filter bags, not sachets) really any better?

One big difference between the two brands is that Pukka gives a detailed breakdown of the contents of its blends, while Clipper is pretty vague. When I contacted the company for more information on the identity of the green tea—called simply Green Tea—I was told that they buy from Indian and China. Like I said: pretty vague.

Today’s Clipper selection is the white tea, also generically named White Tea. It’s perfectly potable, if a bit generic, but come to think of it, don’t I say that about every unflavored white tea? Okay, I do have some haute blanche varieties on the horizon, so perhaps I’ll undergo a conversion. We shall see…

In this afternoon’s steep-off chez sherapop, I tried something new. I brewed one bag of Clipper White Tea using boiling water—as most grocery store tea shoppers would do—and a second bag using 76C water.

The liquor of the tea prepared in hot water was a bit darker—more of a brownish than a golden amber—but the big surprise was that the more carefully controlled brew actually tasted more bitter than the one prepared using boiling water! This result would appear to corroborate my long-standing suspicion that the companies which produce filter bags for the mass market test their blends as they would be prepared by Joe or Jill Q Consumer—that is, using boiling water!

Clippers White Tea isn’t great but they do have some nice teas, their Earl Grey being a favourite of mine. :)

KittyLovesTea: I don’t think that it’s bad; but it’s not very memorable.

Clipper also have a higly pleasant assam with vanilla.

drank Lemon & Ginger by Clipper
77 tasting notes

I LOVE the smell of this tea. Sweet and lemony, almost like fruit loops but heavier on the lemon. It was definitely sweeter tasty than I expected. I don’t get a ton of ginger flavor in the tea, it’s probably masked by all of the delicious lemon.

i tried this cold brew since MissB was kind enough to send me a enough for a couple silsized cups. Cold brew this is even tastier EXCEPT for that sweetness…which i wish i could place and that comes across as really artificial. I figured if it’s not sweetner then it’s some form of the lemon. I think this is pretty tasty though.

Preparation
Iced 8 min or more

My first Clipper tea and probably my last. No discernable bergamot, but underlying tea is good. Possibly a bad batch.

Somewhere along the line I finished this off, and will definitely seek more out. I’m still surprised at how authentic this is, especially for a bagged tea.

This is what I drink when I’ve had too much to drink, and I’m an obnoxious arse who asks their nearest and dearest inappropriate things that makes everyone laugh — too inappropriate for Steepster, I assure you. Thanks for putting up with me, friends, even if sometimes I’m a bit.. mischievous! :) And thank you, tea, for allowing me to purge myself of this lovely wino-ishness.

Hello.Kiki

That’s ok, I think everyone does that to some extent. Last fourth of July/my birthday after far too many shots of tequila, I spent fifteen minutes crying to my husband about how wonderful and sexy I think he is lol.

Hello.Kiki, lolol! that’s adorable.

Amazing! I love that story. :)

A solid bagged tea: definitely bite from the ginger, sweet/tart from the lemon, and altogether wonderful. This may replace several ingredients in my hot toddy for sickos in the future.
