Lipton Darjeeling Tea (Chai) comes from the high mountains of Darjeeling, known for its finest tea plantations. Great!!

I encountered this tea by pilfering it from a friends tea stash at work … and I believe this is how many people will come across this tea. It’s not aspirational, and I would not search high and low to find a tea bag.

On first examination of the tea bag the string was glued to the bag meaning I was not able to fully exploit the dipping capabilities boasted by the string and tab. Nonetheless, I plowed on with my expectations low.

The first sniff of the bag yields a pleasant fruity hit but this is not realised on completion of the brew. The tea is soft and round and very inoffensive but I wasn’t transported to a fruity English forest resplendent with a smorgasbord of summer fruits as I had hoped I might be by the packaging.

Despite this it was an agreeable drink and I would go back for another if I had run out of change for a coffee and had already reached my allotted caffeine allowance for the day and other options were slim.

Now I have finished the drink I am getting a slightly dry and astringent aftertaste in my mouth, but not enough to put me off this stalwart of roadside hotels across the land.

I had a browse through the other reviews of this tea, and found it quite interesting.

I wonder if it was presented in an unnamed, loose tea if the comments would be the same?
Yes, it’s Lipton. The ingredients include the word “flavour” (well, in my case, “aroma”, because I picked it up from Germany). It’s worth noting the ingredients also include “Erdbeere 1.3%” (Strawberry).

I actually found this a fantastic, easy drinking fruity tea. I often like strawberry flavoured things, but I’m not the biggest fan of tisanes, personally. I was surprised how good this black tea with a hint of strawberry was – it added a little sweetness and flavour, in an otherwise robust black tea.
This tea is important to stay within the brewing times – too little and the strawberry doesn’t have time to infuse (leaving only the flavouring), but too long and it becomes astringent.

It’s like a $15 bottle of wine, compared to a $150 bottle – I’m never going to serve it to at a fancy gathering, but it’s brilliant as a relaxed tea when I feel like a black tea, but something a little different.

I was quite impressed with this tea. It really lived up to it’s name! Even though I brewed it for 4 minutes, I’d recommend only 3, and check the water isn’t boiling but is 90 degrees or less. It’s perfect on it’s own, but adding honey might be a good idea for the sweet tooth’s out there.

Backlogging. I really enjoy this tea. Its got a really good peach taste with abit of good black tea. And is pretty sweet although not sickly sweet. And easy since it comes in a bottle.

Strong, sweet flavour that really reminds of blueberry muffins, seems pretty natural.
Slightly sweet in taste, with a lot of fruity and some biscuity notes, subtle earthy aromas from base tea in the background.

All in all it’s pretty good, bu nothing extraordinary.

Standard. A good go-to if you need your fix, and cheap for the amount. But, as with everything, you get what you pay for.

Smells like roasted banana sprinkled with powdered cocoa. rather artificial but quite warming.
Tastes definitely more like pear and the cocoa fortunately turned more into chocolate. Some earthy and malty notes from the base tea are also present.

All in all it’s not a bad one. Too artificial but soothing and warming.

I really enjoy this tea. My staff and I have it on a weekly basis with a little lemon and honey. I will say however, it is really good to have during one of those hectic work days that seem to go on forever.

Picked this tea up about a year ago in NY. I have not seen it here in the midwest. I didn’t add sweetener, as the fragrance of the fruit and chamomile was so sweet, I decided it wasn’t really needed. This is a very mild tea, even after a long steep time. The scent tends toward the pineapple, yet the taste is more the chamomile. Did not really notice any licorice notes, as perceived by another reviewer. However, there’s a slight aftertaste of bubble gum, which I did not care for. There’s a little rawness at the back of my throat, but I think I may have a mild allergy to plants in the chamomile family. All in all still a decent herbal tea, good for relaxing on a summer’s night, or for adding to blends of other teas.

drank Iced Tea by Lipton

Regular Lipton Tea was a family staple growing up – it’s so cheap to buy and you can add anything to it. It’s hard for me to rate it – all teas in my mind are either better or worse than Lipton. So, when I saw the Lipton Instant Ice tea bags on sale last week, I didn’t hesitate to drop a couple dimes on it. Went to brew my first pitcher and realized there was no hot water required? This confused the hell out of me. I was actually pretty skeptical starting out, but one or two giant tea bags to a pitcher made perfect iced tea in 5 minutes…just add the ice, and a wedge of lemon. Who knew it could be that easy? It’s still Lipton tea, not the best, not the worst – but I’d recommend the iced tea bags solely for the convenience of it.

This is my daily tea when I’m going through financial rough patches; just because it’s cheap, and I like it better than teabags. I also drink it because it’s the only loose leaf tea I can find at the local supermarket chains.

I like Lipton’s loose leaf black tea quite a bit better than any tea I’ve had in a teabag. The flavor is similar to the regular Lipton teabags, but a little less bitter, and the flavor is a little fuller. That being said, it’s the most bitter, and tasteless loose leaf tea I’ve ever had.

The tea itself is very finely chopped; more-so than any loose leaf tea I’ve seen. Not an expert, but I think this would be called “fannings?” I only recommend this tea on the basis of it being so cheap, and it’s better than teabags.

Backlog July 3, 2016

A somewhat refreshing tea. It was hot outside in North Carolina on the day we had the pig roast. I wanted some tea, but I wanted to drink something cold. Therefore, there was some cold brewed tea at the in-laws. I didn’t add sugar to mine—as the tea was already sweet on its own—and it seemed to fit with the need of tea/wanting to be refreshed. I wouldn’t drink this again, but it was nice a fruity for a hot day.

Anyway, side story: On the day of the pig roast, my wife’s great uncle (94) passed out at the party caused by the heat. It was pretty bizarre to see people standing around, eating, and claiming that “It was his time, let’s eat….”

P.S. I’ve been busy with work and this adoption process, to the point where I haven’t had the time to write much. However, I’ll get back to it again soon…..!

Flavors: Blueberry

Nice to see you around! That’s so insane that they would say something like that about the great uncle. Hoping the adoption process is going alright.

It was bizarre. I thought to myself, “Geez, my family’d call the ambulance and would stop the party…” Not my wife’s family, though. The process is nearly complete….Four more weeks! :)

Wow! My mother-in-law passed out from heat about two years ago but we carried her in the house and called an ambulance! Where in NC were you? I live in the Sandhills, about an hour from the SC line and 2 hours from the beach. It is miserably hot and sticky.
