This is my go-to at work, and I drink it all day long.
Got a tough bit of code I need to mull over? Green tea break.
The boss just got off a stressful call? Better brew some teas.
Just finished my tea? Make another.
The little moment of zen you get when handling the delicate green tea flavours of a Clipper bag is indispensable for someone with less time to waste. It’s obviously not as involved as preparing loose leaves or even a matcha, but you still have to be careful not to draw a harsh or dry taste from the bag.
Today I left the kettle water to cool for about 1 minute 30, and gently placed the teabag in the mug after the water. You don’t get many distinct aromas from the ethically-chosen leaves before or after wetting them, but there’s a definite green tea character. It smells slightly sharper than the Twinings green teabags.
I leave it to cool a little before drinking, and again there’s nothing too special that I can remember today, just a slightly bland green tea flavour, slightly bitter, but still easy to drink.
To anyone looking for a green tea to buy by the barrel, Clipper is a good cheap choice. It is by no means a bad green tea, but it’s not the best either.
Ooh, this is very nice. Probably my favorite out of all the Clipper herbals I’ve tried. It was rather weak at 2 minutes (and even after 4 and a half), so I left the teabag in the cup the whole time. It seemed a bit dull at first, but it grew on me as the liquor became more pleasantly viscous and the flavors came out and melded together harmoniously. Not the most exciting tea, but then again it’s good not to have too much excitement before bed.
My last pot of tea before bed time. I can’t remember the last time I had this tea..must be a few months ago now. The tea bag doesn’t reveal much in terms of ingredient quality or content but the flavour is quite nice.
It’s a subtle orange and floral mix that is light yet sweet and succulent. Not sure I would have chosen orange necessarily for a night time tea but since I am such a fan of orange I don’t mind it. My husband thought I got the wrong tea bags because he also associates orange as being an energizing taste.
There is also a touch of cinnamon that adds a touch of spice to the orange. It reminds me of a few Christmas teas I finished off in January.
Had a little too much to eat at Easter dinner (postponed until today because we helped my sister-in-law move into her new house), so I wanted something to help settle my tummy. This seemed like the most suitable tea in my possession.
I’m not super keen on this. I like mint and fennel most of the time, and you can definitely taste both, but I can’t help thinking that the flavor suffered because it’s a bagged supermarket tea rather than a loose blend you’d get from a tea shop. My stomach does feel better than it did before, so that’s got to count for something.
I seem to be coming down with a cold again, so today I’m reaching for my comforting teas to soothe my scratchy throat. This is so damn nice brewed strong (2 bags for a mug) with milk and sugar/agave. It’s like a hug or a fluffy blanket for the soul. I feel so much better now than before I started the cup. Upping the rating!
Very dark red color. The taste and smell remind me of fruit flavored chewing gum. The raspberry flavor is kind of artificial, and pretty sour. There seems to be a light minty feeling that lingers though. I like that.
I prefer Marks & Spencer’s raspberry white tea, I think ):
I haven’t tried cold-steeping this yet. I will review again when I do.
This one was from KittyLovesTea! thanks so much! I steeped this for three minutes. White teas aren’t usually my favorite. This one didn’t have enough going for it. Seemed a little boring to me… but maybe that’s just all the wacky teas I’ve had lately. I’ve definitely had worse teas, but this one is just okay. It’s nice to have a plain tea once in a while though. It is tasting better and more complex as it cools though. I did like that today was a black and white tea day though!
First of all I like the fact that the teabags are not bleached. Who would want to brew their tea in paper that has been bleached? Who cares if the paper is cream colored rather than white? Its going to turn brown after you brew it anyway. People don’t realize that snow white paper means major chemicals were used to make that tea bag white. I find it interesting that clipper has a fairtrade tea and a separate fairtrade organic tea at about the same price. It seems the health food stores in the UK sell the organic variety and smaller large chain supermarkets sell the non organic fairtrade. This is good “proper Tea” takes milk and lemon well. Certainly better than Tetley, or Yorkshire Gold cup for cup. For a natural company Clipper Everyday represents the UK very well
The peppermint masks the white tea, unlike Snowman’s Magic Spell, where the peppermint gives more of a fresh accent. Those who are pure-peppermint tea fans might find this blend a little artificial due to the additional presence of the white tea. But overall, a relaxing blend with a pleasant, subtle aroma.
Adding more sugar might help tone down the peppermint. Do not steep for more than 3 minutes!
Backlog: I had this tea a couple of nights ago after a particularly stressful afternoon. The smell dry is LOVELY! Steeped, there’s a bit of funky smell, but upon tasting, it is not evident in the brew. Very nice! The mellow menthol is just right, and it blends wonderfully with the other flavors. It isn’t my favorite tea, but it is pretty good.
This is a satisfying herbal tea, comforting, in fact, though I didn’t need comforting when I drank it. So like welcoming an affectionate hug or a warm bath without having sought that out. The fruit flavors are gentle and blend wonderfully together… must be the elderflower that set it apart from other tisanes… a soft but not at all boring flavor profile. Thank you, KittyLovesTea, for the gift of an unexpected hug :)
There is a lot going on in the aroma and it’s absolutely gorgeous. I can smell cocoa, fruit, flower, and the tea itself. It may be my fault for being a slipshod steeper, or it may be the tea, but the taste just doesn’t live up to the smell. It tastes like black tea with sourish notes and a flowery flavor that makes the addition of milk a bad idea. I don’t really like flowery teas, in general.
I am so impressed by this tea. It tastes just like actual dandelion and.burdock, only not fizzy. I’m not saying that it is delicious, because it’s not, but it’s about as good as you could.hope for, from an adaptation of a sweet fizzy drink.
I’ve been experimenting at work by getting people to guess what the smell is. Most people have guessed aniseed but I think that’s just the Burdock coming through. It’s sweet-ish but not sugary, so works ok.
I haven’t drunk too many everyday teas – the only ones I can think of, off the top of my head, are Yorkshire Tea (my parents’ tea of choice), Tetley and PG Tips – but in all honesty, I’m not sure there’s a massive amount of variance within the genre. How much can you change the formula?
I find that Clipper’s tea is the slowest to brew and produces a fairly low-tannin tea if you leave it longer. It isn’t very rounded, rich or smoky, but has a tang to it. For me, this is good – I mostly drink green and white teas and can’t much cope with a gutsy breakfast tea, especially as I don’t take milk, sugar or lemon. I tend to brew it until just golden.
