drank Vanilla Caramel by Lipton
29 tasting notes

Aroma is very perfumey, definitely more toffee than caramel, sweet. There is strong vanilla, and caramel, of course.
Fortunately taste is only slightly sweet, a bit earthy, with nice vanilla notes, toffee and caramel.
Nut really my, nomen omen, cup of tea, but it’s really suitable for desserts.

Flavors: Caramel, Earth, Perfume, Sweet, Toffee, Vanilla

drank Yellow Label by Lipton
10 tasting notes

Used to drink cups of these in my early teens. I make tea flavoured milk with this. Half a cup of boiling water to one tea bag, enough sugar to cause a sugar coma, top up the rest with milk. It’s also ok with lots of condensed milk. It’s tea. Very plain, very ordinary, very comforting tea. It has it’s place. The taste brings me back to my days as a student.

Pretty good iced with sugar and lemon, but so is just plain water. Growing up my mom would drink this every single morning with stevia and a splash of milk, so it does have the nostalgia factor :)

drank Lipton Black Tea by Lipton
4 tasting notes

I love reading the reviews of this tea. The loose type is a smidge better than the bags, but not by a lot. Got my fill of this during a week-long stay in a psych ward at a hospital (don’t ask). I love that nearly everyone here that has reviewed this didn’t buy it on purpose, or if they did, simply had no other choice. Isn’t that the case with this tea most of the time? I find little enjoyment drinking Lipton’s stuff. What I have of it is now mixed with a steamed Darjeeling and a bold Assam that drowns the taste of this (yes, I am a type that will use the tea somehow, no matter what).

For a Lipton tea, I am impressed. The flavor is spot on for a quick chai. It’s rather spicy on the first brew and then after a few brews it starts to get a metallic taste. That’s when I know to throw it out.

This tea may have one of the most accurate depiction of pear flavor I have ever tried, alas, the chocolate, which is more reminiscent of dusty cocoa powder, is also quite prominent. It’s not bad but it is a weird combination of natural pear and fake chocolate. With that said, it is a very smooth tea. I just wish the pear was stronger. Nonetheless, I am forever grateful to MissB for her generosity of sharing this tea and to Sil for being the middle(wo)man and passing it along.

drank Andalusia by Lipton

This is weird, and I don’t think that I like it.

Citrus, cinnamon, licorice root. It would be nicer if it was indeed CITRUS first, but it’s weirdly not. It’s sort of cinnamon/licorice/pith.

It’s nice that it’s something hot to drink and I’m cold, but… Hmm. Not exactly sure.

Anyways, thanks very much for sharing, MissB! :) I will have to think on this some more.

I tried this today while over at my in-laws, before going out to finish up the last of the Christmas shopping. I added a couple tablespoons of cold water before throwing in the teabag, and only brewed it for about a minute. It turned out quite pleasant. It was light and fruity and tasted mostly of peach. I’m glad I liked it, because it’s extremely rare for me to run across a peach flavored tea I like.

The pyramid-bag line of Lipton stuff isn’t bad. Hadn’t tried this one.

I picked up a box of this on one of my trips – with frequent travelling I’ve found one of the best things for me to do is just buy some tea and a mug when I get there, to make hotel stays a bit more homey.

As with my previous experience with these Lipton sachets, I was pleasantly surprised. This is a nice, solid Earl Grey with a good amount of bergamot and some other citrusy notes.

Over time I’ve reduced my steep time for almost all black teas to 3 minutes, and I find that that amount of time does well by this. This is a go to morning tea, at least till the box is gone, as it’s tasty and convenient.

Flavors: Bergamot, Citrus

I like it!!
Thank you Sil & MissB :)
Pear is a flavour I really do enjoy when done right, and I find that this tea has a great balance. A little sweet, a bit tart, and the chocolate accent really pairs well. Adding just a bit of sugar cuts down on the tart and brings out more of a caramelized pear note.
So yeah. Compared to the other tea I just tried, this is a welcome cuppa heaven!

The tea bag comes in a paper packet that is not air tight. I am not sure how long this was sitting in the cupboard but the tea bag didn’t have much smell at all (probably because it is old and the packaging is not air tight).

The tea tasted alright. The fruit flavors were more prominent than the green tea. I didn’t notice any bitter taste at all as mentioned in another review. Maybe it was prepared differently

The Mandarin taste and smell was more prominent than the green tea. It actually reminded me of some fruity herbal teas. I really liked it so I will probably buy a box of this tea.

I drank this tea hot and I really enjoyed it. It is very fruity so I think it would be good as an iced tea as well. It was surprising how fast the water turned dark red.

Flavors: Berry, Fruity
