Yesterday and today were days of fairly crappy bagged teas, courtesy of hosting nursing interviews. I’m definitely looking forward to being back at my desk tomorrow. Lipton is the standard fare, and they’re okay, but I was getting a bit tired of those. I tried this one today, but sadly wasn’t all that impressed. It smells gorgeous — a really lovely, fairly accurate berry scent, reminiscent of blackcurrant and maybe raspberry. Brewed, it just tastes like hibiscus, more or less. I wasn’t really expecting anything else, and it’s by no means a bad tea. The flavouring isn’t hopelessly tart, and it’s definitely drinkable. It was a hot drink, at the end of the day, and that’s what I needed more than anything. It gets points for that.

Surprisingly yummy! Few ingredients compared to other chai, but I find this gives it a very clean and refreshing flavor. The spices are skewed heavily toward clove, so if you aren’t fond of cloves you many not like it as much. I find the cloves remind me of classic Celestial Seasoning’s Mandarine Orange only without the orange or a bit like Bigelow’s Constant Comment. Very satisfying for a box of tea bags! Would definitely purchase again.

Nice.It’s a bit like NUMI’s Mate Lemon Green Tea ,reminding me of its lovely&sweet flavor of lemon myrtle .Actually,the cute package/cover gained some extra points ,furthermore I’m happy with the refreshing taste,as if I was welcomed with a warm&bright embrace and a sunny smile ,days were soft like cotton,that kind of thing XD.

This tea is hugely full bodied and robust with hints of smoke, damp soil, malt and wood. It can be astringent without milk but it can also be pleasurable plain, my husband likes it strong and black yet he usually adds milk to his hot drinks.

The loose tea itself is somewhat fine and powdery which I believe helps increase it’s strength but it may take a few steeps before you find your desired strength.

All in all it’s a splendid British brew.

got this from a friend. – Hmm, rarely drink T+ (fruit, aroma,….) just prefer my teas pure without any addition, so wasn’t very enthusiast at first.

Open: noted very strong rasberry taste, very sweet. Hope this is going o.k. as I really hate fruity, sweet teas.

Cup:
water 75 C. degrees
Teapot: Chatsford 2 cup
1 bag

sums up to….

pure delight. oh wow. Rasberry taste hardly detectable in cup, which is a huge plus. It’s a rather pleasant smooth cup with a bit of extra umpf. (reminds me of elderflower somehow)

Would never ever have picked this one myself, so pleasantly surprised.

Love the Clipper teas series, have the Earl Grey (my fave), the green, and the everyday tea.

Clipper seems to be taken over most of the popular brands here rather quickly. They are a big hit here at the moment, some types are not available here though (yet..?)

Will def. buy this one again.

This is the best decaf black tea I’ve found so far. This is the stout cuppa, with milk, that you want when you’re hankering after a satisfying and not too fancy cup of tea but don’t want to deal with caffeine.

hardly drink white tea (too….&…) but since I like Clipper teas, and the brand is now being introduced here (discounts, one free, etc.) I decided to try the white one.

appearance: dark golden, kind of orange coloured tea. Incredibly smooth, cannot really say what is tastes like, it’s just delicate, & smooth. Did I already say that?
smoothest teas I have had in a long time.

It’ll be great for ice tea during summers.

I need a morning kick, so drink this now and then, late at night and/or before going to bed.

nice.

Clipper as a brand finally introduced here in NL!!!
Their Earl Grey is the best bagged tea on the market, and my staple tea.

this one is very nice as well. Tea that is on the market here tends to be weak and bland (we are a coffee nation, most coffee per head- ), however, I prefer a good old, strong English cup of tea, and that is just what this is.

strong, mix of assam and ceylon. yummie. box 0f 40 tips gone in no time….

I didn’t like this infusion at all. Usually I love Clipper teas because of their honest taste, but this was just awful.
The colour is pretty purplish red, but the scent is a bit weird and overly sweet.
I can’t even describe the taste. But it will be stuck in your mouth for a looong time after drinking. It’s like sickly sweet beetroot. Ew.

This herbal infusion is a good after dinner option. To me this is a relaxing evening warm tea, a good digestive as well. You could also experiment by combining it with white or oolong teas or even puer tea for a change.

adagio breeze sent this to me at least 6 months ago, but I’m just now getting through the last bag. I really like this blend. I’ve come around on the lemon balm in here. I used to think it was too much, but now I quite enjoy it. It tastes lemon-y without tasting like I could have just squeezed some fresh lemon into the cup for the same effect. Maybe it mellowed out with age? Anyway, bumping the rating a bit. Sad to say, this is a sipdown. Thanks adagio breeze!

Not bad, but a bit heavy on the lemon balm for my taste. I like the mint here – it doesn’t come out in the flavor so much as the sensation. Tingly! The chamomile and lavender are fine. The flavors all work together nicely, it’s just kind of tart for a bedtime tea. Many thanks to adagio breeze for the swap! Where’d she go, anyway?

I’m still here :) Just haven’t been drinking much new tea (I really need to get on that, though)

Kaylee

Aw, yay that you’re still here! Hope you had a lovely trip! I’m happy to send you some new tea to help you get motivated :)

I absolutely love this tea- it’s naturally delicious and has a beautiful cool licorice zing at the end of the sip. I really do suggest it, as its good for you and your tastebuds :)

I found that the licorice root flavour tended to overpower the other flavours in the tea, but otherwise a very nice chai blend.

Another from the box of wonder cteresa sent me after I broke my elbow! I made the first cup of this right after drinking the Destination Ceylon, which was a mistake, especially as I probably left it steeping too long. (BTW, love Clipper as a company, but it makes me so irritated that they have exactly the same brewing instruction on every tea they sell – white, everyday breakfast blend, green, you name it! Even I’ve known better than that for years, and I’m not a long-established tea company!) I drank it again a day or two ago and gave it just under 3 minutes and liked it much, much better. No bitterness, not overly-astringent, and I loved the delicate level of vanilla. I could have taken more vanilla, but didn’t feel the tea suffered from not having it. Oddly enough, they sell probably over 30 types of Clipper teas in our local produce/health food/gourmet shop, and I’ve never seen this one there. Lots of other places to look for it, but it just seems strange.

Feeling a little woozy this afternoon, possibly from too much caffeine. Perhaps a full pot of that English breakfast is not the best way for me to start the day. So I figure now is as good a time as any to try an herbal.

Aroma while steeping is apple-y and somewhat grassy, with a floral note. I don’t really know how to describe the taste, though… there’s the definite sweet aftertaste from the licorice root, but everything else seems to be blending together. I’m not too impressed by it, but it is helping to ground me a bit (contrary to the name, hurr hurr). Next time I’ll go for a longer steep.

Well, I came to this tea quite by accident when I happened to run out whilst we had COMPANY. Mr Porridge ran to the supermarket and returned with this. I know not why he bought it, as embarrassingly enough, his social awareness is practically non-existent. I can only presume it was on ‘special’.
What a pleasant surprise, a real ‘weighty’ (can I use that word? No moderators, so I guess I can..) tea. Full of flavour; good and strong, even when brewed in a mug, not a pot, and given the ‘quick 2 squeeze against the side’ treatment.
Delicious swally. Well worth a go.

Carol Wattberg

I think ‘weighty’ is fair.

A squeezer! I like you already.
