drank Lemon & Ginger by Clipper
510 tasting notes

Thanks to MissB for sending me this one! I’ve really liked the other Clipper teas I’ve tried, and this one is no exception. It tastes like lemon candy with ginger. Very relaxing. I bet it would be great for a sore throat, too.

To be honest I mainly bought this for its badass dragon box. I also enjoy white tea and can not usually find many blends with raspberry in them. I find the flavour to be more raspberry than white tea and the raspberry tastes a little synthetic but overall its quite lovely. Additionally, I don’t like that this doesn’t have a string on the tea bag. Petty, I know. The box also says to use boiling water which is entirely incorrect. White tea is far to delicate to be used in 100 degree water. I suggest using 80 degrees so ensure you don’t get any bitter, nasty flavours.

drank Organic White Tea by Clipper

This is better than some other cheap white tea teabags, and probably quite ok for the price, but has none of the flavour of a decent white tea. In it’s favour it can be steeped for a good while before becoming bitter which is rare with cheap whites, what little taste it does have isn’t unpleasant, and for the price you can’t expect much. But if you want decent white tea with real sweetness and subtlety look elsewhere.

Mild white tea. Not bitter. Great packaging.

This is a very mild and soothing chai blend, a lot less strong then any other chai I’ve ever had, which may be due its pleasantly sweet aftertaste. A really nice tea for a chai lover.

I’m currently mired in the second worst bout of flu I’ve ever had in my life. It’s awful, and it’s not going anywhere with anything resembling speed. This means that, other than Lemsip, I’m just drinking bog-standard Clipper Organic Everyday. I can’t taste, and wouldn’t enjoy, anything else right now, but this is plain, strong, straightforward stuff (and great with milk). While it’s not what I’d normally choose, it’s being my friend while I’m ill.

Hopefully I’ll be back to normal soon sigh

Smells more apple-y than it tastes, but tastes sweet and spicy. A nice alternative to lemon & ginger!

drank Clipper Organic Chai by Clipper
50 tasting notes

Got this yesterday as part of my present from my aunt. I really like chai teas and it’s probably only tea that I drink with milk. First time I steeped this only 3mins but it wasn’t strong enough so this time 5mins.
Clippers teas might be only bagged tea mark that I like, also their ideology and using fair trade and organic is the best. This tea is actually quite spicy, which I like since if it’s too mild it doesn’t fit with milk. I need milk with my chai, it gives some body and sweetness to it. Good substitute for glogg, and suits with winter and christmas.

Flavors: Spices

drank Earl Grey by Clipper
125 tasting notes

Mmmm. This tea is often in my cupboard, so I don’t usually bother to take it out, although I thought I should for my sipdown challenge.

This is hands-down my favourite traditional Earl Grey. It is a staple in my house and the houses of extended family members (it now strongly reminds me of Frank’s family every time I drink it, as they have it more often than unflavoured black tea). Clipper is one of the better brands of teabags usually found in British supermarkets, and I prefer to buy these when we run out of EG when I can afford it. The bergamot is very strong, as is the base tea, which is good for me as I love strong teas. The citrus-y bergamot has a lingering almost orange note, which adds a lovely extra dimension. I wish we had some of these in at the moment – writing up this note is giving me cravings!

Sipdown! (16/203)

I know what you mean about Clipper teas! For a ‘standard tea bag’ company, they really are quite decent! :-)

Nattie

Definitely! There isn’t much choice around me, tea-wise, so Clipper is usually my go-to brand when I’m food shopping and get new-tea cravings. (:

Brewed infusion has a juicy aroma with sweetness.

Hibiscus is overpowering and drowns out sweet fruity flavour. Underneath the hibiscus, there is a good mix of punchy berry favour. Overall sour because of the hibiscus.

Flavors: Berry, Sour, Sweet

I found Clipper teas the other day at a local grocery store! They had maybe 6 flavoured white teas. Have you tried any of those ones? :)

I’ll definitely be on the lookout! I was pretty impressed with their bagged breakfast blend. I’m trying to find something that I can drink at school so it has to be able to withstand the incredibly hot water that they have in the student lounge and cafeteria.

OMGsrsly

I know it takes more work, but you can always put some ice in your cup before you add the hot water, just so it’s a little cooler. This would be assuming that the cafeterias have ice thingies for pop like they do over here. :)

Raritea

That’s a really great idea! We don’t have any of those ice dispensers on campus but they do have chilled filtered water available… BRILLIANT! Thank you thank you! I won’t feel so restricted in my on campus tea choices anymore. I am, however, still tempted to bring a thermometer with me… probably not the best idea- you should have seen my flatmates’ faces when they saw a thermometer in the kettle.

OMGsrsly

Haha. That’s so awesome. I’d love to see some peoples reactions. :D

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.

Preparation

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

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

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 :)
