How i got it: Found some old teabags at my parent’s house
Experience: I’m not really a fan of vanilla, but i do like this combination. The resulting aroma is very enjoyable, and the flavor is almost as good. The touches of vanilla and caramel are very pronounced and clear, leaving the tea behind, but still perceptible if one makes an effort to find it. I’d say good.
Would i buy it?: I’m in doubt with this one. Maybe if i am in a mood for sweets and i don’t have other option at the moment, it could be.
I have been offered full-time employment!!!! The search is finally over! Praise be!!
This tea walks the border between too tart and tolerably tart for me. It’s a hibiscus base, and hibiscus plus blackberry is kind of asking for trouble. But the vanilla does its job and takes the edge off of the bitterness and gives the cup a mildly sweet and melodious note.
Not my favorite, but not awful. The vanilla is the saving grace (and, frankly, the whole reason why I made the purchase…)
Not the best tea I’ve ever drank, but honestly, one of the best at the grocery store. It does influence my rating and enjoyment of this tea that my mom and dad only use Lipton in their sweet tea recipe and even after moving out of their house, the taste of decaf Lipton or plain Lipton black tea brings back memories.
How i got it: My workplace’s current tea of choice
Experience: This is one tea i drink when i want something a bit stronger than the usual black. Clear, intense, and the typical malty taste of Ceylon teas. Slightly bitter in the end (maybe due to oversteeping, though i only brew it for a bit more than 2 min.). Quite aromatic. Very good.
Would i buy it?: I’d say yes. Actually, i’m thinking about changing the default Lipton Yellow Label for this one, although i’m not sure if i will like strong tea every night
My go-to brand for everyday tea drinking. It really depends on how you prepare it. Some like to steep it for five minutes straight. Others will only do it for two. Some add sugar, some add sweetener. Personally, I let it steep long enough to be almost bitter and don’t sweeten it at all. You really have to play to get comfortable and find your ideal point with this tea. You’ll have fun while drinking this tea.
How i got it: Bought it
Experience: My everyday black tea, but i have to say, it’s a bit tricky. Depending on how you brew it, it can turn out fairly good, with a very balanced and clear flavor, or disappointing, leaving you with kind of a watery taste. But in the end, i would say is good overall.
Would i buy it again?: For my default tea, probably yes, until i find something better

Yum yum, summer fruit tea! Normally, I avoid super fruity blends, but I just impulsively decided to try this one today. I’m glad I did! This tea is a perfect example of responsibly used hibiscus. Which is to say, hibiscus is listed in the ingredients, but I didn’t taste it. Thank goodness, because the hibiscus was what made me hesitate initially.
White tea and peach are a match made in heaven, in my opinion. They both have a mildly sweet and floral flavor, which is perfect for July. The mango presents itself during the sip, and the peach echoes in the aftertaste, but neither dominates over the other.
Well done, Lipton.
Flavors: Carrot, Mango, Peach
Sipdown! The last six teabags in this box have been sitting around my cupboard (and my house) for a while now. So I decided to make a nice pitcher of this, iced. Gotta beat the heat AND clear out the tea clutter in my life!
I didn’t love this one hot, but iced, it’s simply divine! Berries taste best cold, to me. I’m getting a very mellow black base and mostly strawberry and raspberry, and possibly even some cranberry and honey notes. I have this theory that Lipton, as an American commercial tea brand, knows that most of their consumers drink their teas iced, and so they craft them to taste good iced.
That said, I won’t be restocking it. I like Lipton’s Vanilla Caramel tea better.
These Lipton Pyramid teas are my guilty pleasure. This one is my favorite. The base is fairly astringent, but if you catch it early and ditch the teabag after one or two minutes, it’s actually a really tasty tea. The caramel and vanilla make it creamy and sweet.
Vanilla teas appear to be my weakness. Lol
ahhh… The PBR of the tea world.
Nothing complex, compelling, or even interesting to this tea. It’s brews your basic crowd-pleasing iced tea. It suits my needs by taking the place of my after-work beer as I try to get healthier, and at $4/8ounces you cant go wrong as it doesn’t try to be anything it’s not…
Missed my morning Yorkshire Gold the other day, and didn’t want to get into my work stash, so I picked out the tea that they have at the office—Lipton. Brewed for 3.5 minutes with one packet of sugar. When I drank it, I mentally quoted Sherlock: “surprisingly ok.” Nothing great, and it has a bit of a strange peppery quality, but I was expecting something absolutely terrible based on most of the reviews here (I’d had it as a kid, but not since). I compare it to a decent American adjunct lager in the world of craft beer—not something I’d go out of my way to drink, but not something I’d avoid if I were offered one.
