drank After Dinner Mints by Clipper

I tried this tea 45 minutes after my dinner to freshen my breath and see if this tea lives up to it’s name.

Colour: Brown with a golden glow.
Smell: Super minty.

Taste: This tea is strong and refreshingly minty and is definitely not for those that like subtle flavours. It’s certainly strong enough to freshen the breath after any meal and is also said to help aid digestion. The two mints combined (spearmint and peppermint) leave a full on cool minty menthol tango on the tongue that slips down easily.

If you love mint as much as I do then this tea is for you. :)

Boiling 3 min, 30 sec

drank Snore & Peace by Clipper
1081 tasting notes

Colour: Golden brown.
Smell: Lavender and lemon.

Taste: This has a minty, floral flavour which is tasty yet fairly subtle and airy. After the first taste of mint you get a floral lavender and then zesty lemon flavours that come out to play. The smell reminds me of lavender and herbal pillows that you can buy to aid your sleep only in this case you have a lovely drink instead.

Lavender can taste a little bitter at times and it is certainly a refined flavour but boy does it make you sleepy. Half way down this mug and I am yawning inconsolably, so while this isn’t the best tasting tea available it works well for making you sleepy and relaxed.

drank Cloud Nine by Clipper
1081 tasting notes

Colour: Dark gold.
Smell: Sweet and crisp apple with lemon and floral undertones.

Taste: Fresh and natural apple with a hint of sweet pineapple also with light lemon and floral tones. The more you drink the stronger the apple and fruit flavours become, overall this is a nice mellow fruity blend. Everything blends well together so you don’t have any bitter or harsh tastes like some other fruit teas have. You also get an added flavour once you have passed your cups half way point, mystical liquorice root. Now I am not such a fun of liquorice in tea as they can usually become over powering in flavour but this blends in nicely in the background.

drank Zen Again by Clipper
1081 tasting notes

Colour: Dark honey.
Smell: Freshly citrus.

Taste: First few sips reveal a mellow mixture of flavours. I can taste the sharp sweetness of the lemongrass, the deep menthol of the eucalyptus and the earthy freshness of the nettle. Overall this creates a beautifully fragrant and relaxing experience that strengthens with each sip.

This truly is a lovely and well balanced blend that has left me feeling relaxed and at ease.

I have a busy day ahead of me and this raspberry leaf tea sounded very relaxing and fruity to drink this morning. I do like most of the Clipper range and do prefer their loose leaf tea but their bagged tea (such as this one) is just as wonderful (usually).

It says on the back of the box to steep for 3-5 minutes with boiling water which is precisely what I have done.

Colour is very raspberry dark red, almost like a cordial pop.
Smell is beautifully fresh and fruity and strong.

This tea is just divine, fruity and strong yet with a mellow refreshing taste. It has everything I would look for in a fruit tea and each sip gives you the same experience as the first. You can certainly taste the raspberry and you can also taste the leaf, it is slightly bitter and is mostly in the after taste.

This does not have that stale, dusty taste that some bagged tea’s have and pre bagged is so easy to transport making this perfect for sharing with friends. Whenever I visit my friends and family I am forever taking my own tea bags down to visit and my offers of a cup of tea to mostly be turned down (as to them I drink strange tea). But this is the sort of tea that everyone can enjoy including children. It just has that sort of fruit juicy taste to it.

I am so delighted by this tea that it has gone straight into my cupboard to be used more often. Perfect for summer, just to kick back in the sun with a cup of this. Bliss.

what a classic tea! i love the musky tasty and the bittersweet kick that is the after taste of this lovely tea. most people enjoy without milk but I find this tea is the best with a splash of soya milk. yum!

We spent the weekend in Copenhagen and this is what they had in the breakfast buffet. (There were a number of other Clipper bags as well, but one of them I couldn’t work out what was and the others I didn’t think were very suitable for breakfast.)

It contained Assam and Ceylon and the Assam shone clearly through, with the Ceylon tempering that astringency that usually gives me Assam-trouble.

I wouldn’t say it was anything particularly special or earth-moving, but it wasn’t horrible either. It was perfectly adequate for breakfast in a situation where I wasn’t about to start waxing poetic about it anyway. A tea to drink without having to have an opinion on it.

Light, peaceful, adorable tea that wants to play with your mouth. It’s naive and delicate!

My favourite cuppa: a flavoursome brew that beats all other everyday teas hands down. Best in the morning with milk.

I just do not like this. I couldn’t really taste anything much, had to add some cinnamon. The teabags were huge, and they had a really funny smell, and as I was moving them from the box to my tea holder I got really fed up of the smell, awful.

Not nearly lemony enough for me, I always end up adding lemon juice to it. But otherwise quite nice.
