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.

Backlog. To me this didn’t taste artificial, just like dehydrated strawberries. When brewed it actually became jammy and sweet in a very nice way, which I was not expecting at all from this brand—it’s much better than any Lipton I’ve had in America, including strawberry flavors. I only found it on the breakfast buffet once, so I guess I know why it kept disappearing!

In case anyone wondered where I’ve been over the last week, the answer is Europe! Specifically Poland. My dad had a conference there and I was lucky enough to tag along. I had a lot of fun but it’s good to be home. (And now I have a lot of backlog notes to do!)

It’s funny, but I’m pretty sure this is different than the Lipton we have in the US. Not drastically, but it’s smoother and less astringent. I had this several times, and two were worth commenting on: with raspberry juice and with preserves. The juice I only saw on one menu, but the preserves were on at least three and I got curious. It turns out to be a really smart and delicious way to sweeten plain tea; who doesn’t have jam sitting around somewhere? And Lipton is significantly better with some sugar of some kind in it.

I find this tea much too weak for my particular tastes, and it’s definitely a “more tea not more time”. I find I have to do at least 2 tea bags to a cup, and more like 3 to a pot, otherwise it smells great but tastes like water.

Flavors: Peach

It’s a very sad day. Freezing cold, both outside and in my office – and I forgot to toss tea into my purse. I’m at work tea-less. Uggggg
This was my lesser of other evil choices…. :(((

How about you put a secret stash in your desk for emergencies?

Great! I got my eyes stuck on this one when I visited the local supermarket. It’s a pretty decent Earl Grey, whose citrus flavor pretty much gives a kick to it. It might be a sign of addiction, but I didn’t get any coffein hype from it. I would recommend this tea for afternoons, right before a darjeeling.

78 F on the porch. Ceiling fan spinning slowly. Rocking chair. Plate of macaroni and cheese, baked beans. A sandwich of thin sliced deli ham, iceberg lettuce, tomato, ranch dressing, colby jack, on rye bread. Icy cold bottle of Citrus Green Tea. It may not be Heaven but it sure is nice. It’s good to be me. (Sorry Gene, I stole your catch phrase)

Fjellrev

That’s a hardcore relaxing atmosphere, I’m sure.

gmathis

Yes. Heaven has porches. With Cracker Barrel rocking chairs.

Wee Doggies, room for plenty more. Drag up a rocker. Take your shoes off. Set a spell.

Something about this distinctly reads as bubblegum flavored to me.
