drank Blueberry Muffin by Lipton
1217 tasting notes

Well, this isn’t a fruit tea, so I need to change that. It’s a black with added flavors, and surprisingly good ones. I actually get “McDonald’s crappy Blueberry muffin” out of this… Or what I’d imagine it to be. The commercials have two ladies taking a bite out of their cups, and showing a Blueberry muffin. Pretty accurate!

Flavors: Artificial, Blueberry, Cake

I think if McDonald’s changed the name of their muffin as per your suggestion they might even be able to trademark it and sell way more haha

Oddly enough, you make me want to experience this crappy blueberry muffin you speak of.

MissB

Oh gosh. Well, imagine a muffin devoid of any nutrients whatsoever, but it’s like crack, you can’t stop eating it. Interestingly, McDonald’s in France and Belgium don’t sell them… Croissants and macarons all the way!

Really though, the ad isn’t my creation, it’s on TV in France constantly.

omggggggggggg Croissants and macarons at McDonalds!?!?!?!?!?

I love the smell of this tea, but I think that’s where the love stops. It’s pretty sour—to the point where I don’t think it’d be salvageable with an unlimited amount of sweetener. I’m definitely going to put this on my list of iced-only teas. The vanilla is lost, and that makes me sad.

drank Caramel Tea (Thé Caramel) by Lipton

Strong bagged black tea with even stronger caramel smell. Pretty straightforward stuff, but needs sweetener to bring out the flavor at all. Needed to add some cream because it’s just too strong for my stomach.

Grabbed this in France, added description, ingredients and translated it as best I could.

My mother bought some of this tea for me in an attempt to buy me a “fancy” tea (she really doesn’t get my tastes in tea), which I appreciate but this is just not that great. Thankfully it was partially saved by adding a lot of honey. I wish I could say exactly what was wrong with it but it was just kind of ..blah.
It’ll do in a pinch, though – so there’s that.

drank Green Tea by Lipton

Maybe I just don’t like Lipton, because this green tea is really awful. It’s cheap tasting, and a shorter steeper time isn’t even close. Even dabbing it in for a couple of seconds can lead to a bitter and sour cup. I like “pure green tea” so I naturally don’t put any additives, but this truly is just bad and cheap tea. Have to finish it before I get a new one…

I may have let the water boil for too long this time but it was still pleasant. Had a slight bitter aftertaste, smelt really nicely of peaches but the flavour of the tea was lacking compared to how fragrant it was.

My grandma got me this tea as a Christmas gift. It’s not something I would normally drink, but I’ve had a bad head cold all week, so it was actually quite nice to have a cheap decaf tea that I could sip instead of wasting my good loose leaf tea. I can’t taste much right now, but I did notice the sweetness of honey and a little bit of lemon in this. Mostly, though, it was just the comforting familiarity of a warm cup of tea on a rough day!

Flavors: Honey, Lemon, Sweet

So as many of you know, I’ve been on a mission to find good decaf teas lately so they will help my physical issues. Well, Carol Who decided to send me a bunch of decaf teas this week, which is totally up my alley! So excited about these teas. Thank you for helping my exploration to find the best decaf teas, Carol Who! :D
I don’t generally like Lipton as a brand, but a few years ago I used to drink one of their peach teas. Wasn’t great, but was decent.
Wasn’t so sure about trying this one, but since it’s a chamomile, I had to try! Glad I did!
Was pleasantly surprised.
While I don’t think that chamomile and pineapple should be mixed together-since those two flavors alone are often sour in things, this tea actually tastes okay. It definitely is more of a sour tea, but it reminds me of candy. Which I am always down for. Because candy is the bomb in my world :P
I don’t think I’d want to buy this tea, but I will enjoy finishing off this one. Thank you for the tea bags, Carol Who! This one will be good when I’m in the mood for something sweeter than the banana chamomiles I have! :D

Flavors: Candy, Pineapple, Sour

good decaf teas are hard to find, for sure

I like this one, too. Chamomile usually takes over when it’s blended with anything, but the fruit tones it down a little.

I was surprised at how drinkable this was. I am visiting family and this is the tea they had at breakfast at the hotel. I am just glad I could make a strong cup, even if it isn’t super tasty!

This is a really good tea. I wish it was a little stronger but it works.

Saw this at my in-laws’ and decided to give it a whirl since I’d never tried it before. Unsurprisingly, I was unimpressed. The base tea was uninspiring, and I could barely taste the berry flavor. I won’t go out of my way to drink this again.

How i got it: Tried it while having tea at my cousin’s house

Experience: When i saw this tea, i went for it not expecting much, based in my relationship with Lipton teas. In the end, though, it was a very pleasant surprise. This tea’s aroma is (obviously) defined by the mandarin’s (very close to the natural scent) but there’s a space for the green tea to appear too, something a bit unusual. Its flavor is very well balanced, and while the mandarine notes are a little less natural than what could be sensed in the smell of the blend (in the flavor, they tend to be a bit more like orange candy than natural orange), the resulting mix turns out to be very enjoyable. (Surprisingly) very good – indeed, maybe one of the better Lipton’s i’ve tried.

Would i buy it?: Good chances for the ‘yes’ case

What the what?! Had a hankering for Earl Grey while doing groceries and thought Lipton’s “long leaf” (not full leaf, mind you, but not fannings) option might hold the best promise. Oops. I should have read the package more carefully.

In addition to the strange and unmentioned addition of marigold flowers, the fine print on the front of the box proclaims “natural bergamot flavor and other natural flavors.” The ingredients list is even less revealing, listing only “natural flavors.” But I didn’t read any of that until after having my cuppa.

It was interesting cuppa that initially held promise. Not only was there bergamot flavor (albeit not much), but it felt fresh and bright, unlike many stale mass market Earl Greys I’ve had. The bite of the black tea seemed perfectly paired with the citrus. While too thin for a traditional Earl Grey, it at least tasted good. For a brief, fleeting instant, I thought I’d found boutique loose-leaf flavor at supermarket prices.

And then it all fell apart. As the tea began to cool, it took on the smell and taste of Froot Loops. Forging on, it moved through Froot Loops to Lemon Pledge, settling on “undrinkable” by the last few sips. Now, having finished some time ago, I’m left with the taste of the smell of Play-Doh lingering on my tongue.

Whirlwind psychedelic tour of your suburbanite childhood or grossly subpar supermarket tea? You decide.

Smells great out of box but the flavors are too subtle for my taste. The green tea and orange peel do not taste great together.

This was my boyfriend’s favourite morning tea/bagged tea. I can’t seem to find Lipton’s in London, so I now buy the Lemon Grey from Twinings, which has a similar thing going on. A very nice teabag. I find that Earl Greys do pretty well in teabag form, they don’t seem to be overly demanding.
