very neutral, and actually not too bad, but that doesn´t mean it´s OK, if you understand me here ;-) The usual stuff they put in the tray of the hotels where coffee and tea facilities are offered.

drank Earl Grey by Lipton
29 tasting notes

This isn´t Earl Grey tea, it´s more like a lemon tea…but unfortunately still about the only tea available (apart from the yellow label tea) in standard snack bars. No way I´m buying this one!

Flavors: Lemon

How i got it: Got a bag in a swap with my fiancee

Experience: Yes, tea with berries again, and another one where the berries side overrides the tea, both in flavor and aroma. The main role this time is the cherry, so intense that almost no room is left for the green tea to appear. The resulting mix has a simple, but not very lasting taste. I’d say it’s similar to Basilur’s Summer tea, only with less vibrant and balanced flavors. Not bad, but not specially good.

Would i buy it?: Hmm… it doesn’t have much merits. My answer would be ‘no’.

Mmm second steep of the same leaves has less apricot but still a hint and that nice sweetness. The grassy, vegetal characteristics are still there, but the tang mellowed out.

Impressed once again.

I’ve had this in my cupboard in an unsealed box for a long time, well over a year. I very nearly tossed it in the garbage, but I’m glad I didn’t, because this is goooood.

I often find flavoured white teas disappointing, but this is delightful and well balanced. The green and white is fresh, crisp, grassy and vegetal, with a touch of tang. The apricot is sweet and delicate; not even a touch of tartness and it tastes very natural. The fruit doesn’t overpower the tea at all.

I would drink this again in a heart beat, and I’m disappointed that it’s been discontinued.

drank Forest Fruits by Lipton
167 tasting notes

I think I stole this tea from the craft services table at something I was filming. Or possibly the breakfast bar at a hotel? I don’t really remember. It’s been in a bag of random teas in the cupboard for a while, in any case. Today, I decided to give it a go, because what the hey.

And it’s a good ‘un! Surprisingly so. Really sweet, but there’s still just a little of presence of actual black tea somewhere under the forest fruits flavour, which for some reason tastes to me mostly like apple? But, like, a really nice, juicy apple flavour. Which is actually really lovely, albeit unexpected. If I didn’t have so many teas already, I might stock it. I’d certainly choose it if it were on offer at other film shoots!

How i got it: Bought It (Lipton’s Assorted Pack)

Experience: This one, along with the Royal Ceylon, maybe can justify the Assorted Pack. It has a smooth and lightly acidic aroma, and an intense and pungent taste, varying from malty to softly bitter. I think it has character, but i missed a clearer, better defined taste. Mild astringency. Better than i thought.

Would i buy it again?: In its current form (teabag) maybe not, but i would surely try a loose leaf version.

How i got it: Bought It (Lipton’s Assorted Pack)

Experience: Well, i was expecting something different, to be honest. For me, this tea’s strong point is its smooth aroma, very similar to Dilmah’s English Afternoon, but more subtle and sweet. At the other hand, its taste is not very well defined, and a lot softer than i expected (taking Dilmah’s Darjeeling as a reference). The strong ‘muscatel’ touch is quite missed here, but in the end, this tea isn’t bad. Average, I’d say.

Would i buy it again?: Mmm… i’ll pass this time. Better options out there.

Posy

Can’t compare Lipton with Dilmah, bro. Save some bags for me, I want to try it.

Chris Chamorro

The 20-bags assorted pack just included 2 Darjeelings, and i took only one =/ But don’t worry, i got a couple of better ones for you to try.

Posy

Awesome, thanks

drank Amaretto by Lipton
31 tasting notes

How i got it: Bought It (Lipton’s Assorted Pack)

Experience: I think this one is a bit below Lipton’s average. I’d say the best point of this tea is its aroma, very similar to amaretto’s (almonds liquor). Aside of that, both the amaretto and tea flavors are somehow plain. I tried to steep it some seconds more to see if it could get better, but the only gain was in the astringency, which raised a lot. Not undrinkable, but not exactly good.

Would i buy it again?: I think the answer is no. Even if i’m in a mood for something sweet, Lipton’s Vanilla Caramel does a bit better than this one.

Posy

I thought the same, but I haven’t tasted any other Amarettos. Makes me think that maybe they are all just aromatic. I’d like to try some in another brand. Whittard has an “Amaretto Explosion Fruit” tea. Sounds promising.

Chris Chamorro

Yup, that sounds better, although for Amaretto being an artificial flavor, my expectations are not that high. I’m open to try other options, anyway.

Meh. It’s boring, it’s bland, it’s everyday. It’s fine, doesn’t really stand out or anything, but when it comes down to it, it’s rather boring and quite bitter. I have a box and I won’t bin it, but I will also not buy this tea again.

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 enough.

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.

What I often get when I order green tea in American or South African restaurants. Absolute garbage and a discredit to Western civilization.

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.
