This is a truly exceptional blend, and currently my absolute favourite. The balance between the leaves, rose petals, and lychees is superb. Enjoy this tea at any time of the day (although I would prefer others late at night). Do yourself a big favour and try this one. ** Strange thing is that whilst I procured this in Singapore, the packaging has Russian writing all over it. It is distributed by Unilever, so I guess there is a reason for it.

I need to buy this tea somewhere online in Ireland or the UK.
Where can I buy it? Any help would be greatly appreciated!
Google searches so far are showing up nothing but a box of this tea for 35 dollars! Must be good as its impossible to buy online or offline as far as I can see…
A very unorthodox kind of tea, but if you like fruit (especially pineapple) you should definitely give it a try. Smells lovely too. It’s like an exotic holiday in a teabag!
Especially the smell is really lovely! You can still taste the slight bitterness of white tea, but the subtle raspberry flavor goes really well with it. Not a particularly strong flavor, but good enough for an afternoon tea.
I’m usually pretty averse to artificial flavors, but somehow i find this Lipton tea totally delightful. It smells absolutely wonderful, and while the flavor is delicate, a little bit of honey seems to really bring everything together for me. It’s my husband’s favorite tea, and i usually wish i’d gone with this rather than whatever i’ve picked for myself when i make it for him. It doesn’t really have a tea flavor at all; it mainly just tastes like caramel. Yum!

Love this & other Lipton Superfruits iced. Just wish I didn’t go through the boxes so quickly.
I have refrained and resisted from rating this tea because its underwhelming reputation has done enough damage to the name “Lipton.” Or has it? This poor excuse for tea relates to hip/hop in the way that it’s useless and serves no real purpose but also never seems to go away. How can a product be so terrible and have such a poor reputation but continue to pervade store shelves? Anyway, when I’m out to a meal and I order tea I always let them know that if they only provide Lipton to just bring me water or coffee. I would rather drink Tetley filtered through a dirty gym sock. Lipton should be free and never sold. Calling it “tea dust” is a compliment.
Had this ages ago . . . It tasted weird and wrong, on multiple attempts. The tea itself—without adding any sweetener—was cloyingly, overpoweringly sweet. There was also some vanilla flavor, and not much else. I couldn’t taste the tea at all.
The best way I found to drink it was with milk and no added sweetener. Then it was like watery vanilla-flavored milk. . . . Though still not what I wanted, which was a cup of TEA.
Gave the rest to a friend.
In some respects, I find it hard to believe that I am actually reviewing a tea that is sold by Lipton. Quite some time ago, when I was first starting to “get into” tea, I discovered quickly that Lipton bagged teas were far from quality, when compared with some other bagged tea offerings, as well as nearly every loose leaf tea. The contents of each tea bag tasted as though they were fannings, which are the leftover dust of broken tea leaves. Yet Lipton’s bagged teas were so inexpensive that they became the go-to bagged tea for hotels, restaurants, convenience stores, etc. looking to offer a tea that was cheap.
In more recent years, with the rise in tea’s popularity among the masses, Lipton has been striving to bolster the quality of their offerings, at least from the visible aspect. Switching to pyramid infusers for some of their “premium” lines, offering flavored black teas, actually delving into the areas of white tea and rooibos (albeit flavored on both counts), and expanding upon their herbal blends are all examples of their attempts. (The current obsession with flavoring teas is another story entirely…) Another try on their part is branching beyond the “black tea” label to special, regionalized offerings. Today’s review will touch on their Darjeeling.
Traditionally, Darjeeling tea is sourced from a specific region in India, but the packaging for this tea bag has no source information. Because it is one of their “premium” teas, the label is at least a bit fancier than their generic black tea or even their Yellow Label tea. As three to five minutes of steep time in just-boiled water are recommended, I choose the low end (having already tried a cup of this, yesterday, that was steeped for four minutes and tasted entirely over-infused).
My thoughts from yesterday’s cup had been along the lines of “I had been struck by a small ray of hope upon seeing that Lipton had been branching into what appeared to be slightly fancier teas. Unfortunately, after a very short steep, the produced cup was both bitter/astringent and not particularly flavorful.” Having reduced the steep time for today’s cup, I hoped that I could at least discern some better flavors with perhaps a touch more complexity.
No. No, no, and some more no. I wonder why this tea tastes like their generic black tea with a touch of darjeeling flavors? On one hand, I can at least tell that it is supposed to be darjeeling, so that very, very slightly satisfies my hope. On the other, massive hand…it tastes terrible. In fact, only the aftertaste is really darjeeling. The smell and initial flavors are rough and more reminiscent of an assam of low quality (sans the typical maltiness of an assam). Thankfully, this was a teabag that I picked up from the office and not something on which I spent money. The one redeeming factor about this tea is that worse teas do exist…but that is not saying much. On my personal enjoyment scale, I would rate this tea an 18/100.

The first tea I have ever tried and liked! It converted me from a coffee lover to a coffee and tea lover! :)
I always run out of this tea. it’s good , and it’s has a really good taste
Well I’m traveling again and stuck in an airport all night with delays. Last night nothing was open but one small shop and the only thing they had was Lipton! I was so desperate I went for it. I noticed it was the new blend that they’ve been advertising on tv, so I was kind of curious as well.
I steeped the bag for 3 minutes at whatever temp the shop water was. The first thing I was greeted with was quite the aroma! It had a nice malty smell with some honeyed notes and a light roastiness. There was also a brightness that was pretty uplifting.
From the very first sip, I really enjoyed this tea. It must be the fresh-pressed tea leaves that they’re now adding to the bags. It really makes a difference! The tea was full bodied but still light and not astringent. It was smooth with a silky texture, with notes of molasses, fresh bread and a hint of chocolate. I really felt great drinking this tea.
I feel like I have to spread the news! This amazing tea can be had at your grocery store! I even found a special coupon code for ordering online today for 50% off, what a steal! The code is: APRILFOOLS
It hurts, kill it before it reproduces and hurts your friends and family. Only good for those emergencies where you can’t find anything else, but even then it’s better not drink it.
Steaming pile of tea-like pee.
I had leftovers from Cheddars for lunch today. Country fried steak, mashed potatoes, and brocolli & cheese casserole. This is new in our area and my goodness is it good. My wife and I ate there for $21 and took some home. She had a mountain of chicken and shrimp. Maybe they raise the prices after they hook you or maybe not. Sure is good though. Their iced tea was very brisk.
I had this tea hot with it today. I could smell the fruit the whole time I was eating. It smells so good. This is my most viewed tea on my blog. If Lipton made a small variety pack I could buy or they had an email where I could contact them I would review a bunch of these – for a simple teabag tea this is very tasty.
