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.

drank Strawberry Tea by Lipton

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.

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.

Flavors: Bergamot, Citrus, Earl Grey

drank Lipton diet citrus green tea by Lipton

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.

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.

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

Experience: This one got a little below my expectations. Its nice aroma is clearly dominated by the mint (as usual in flavored greens), while the tea has just the enough strength to prevent this from smelling like a pure mint tisane. In the taste, however, this becomes more pronounced, as the green tea flavor is too smooth and fleeting to have a fair participation in the blend’s taste. Not bad, but not too good either.

Would i buy it again?: It’s a little above the average in the Assorted Pack , but i missed the characteristic flavor of greens. I’m more inclined to the ‘no’.

The only reason I have this is because I found it in a salvage grocery store for $1.45. The box was squished, but it wasn’t expired.

As far as bagged chais go, this isn’t the worst one I’ve tried. It also isn’t the best, of course. Cinnamon is the most dominant spice I can taste, while the other spices just sort of blend together in the background. I can hardly taste the base at all.

If you end up with this tea for whatever reason, you might wanna double-up on the amount of bags you’d normally use. It’s really weak and they were stingy with the spice. Or, you know, you could just skip it altogether.

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

Experience: This tea is curious. Its aroma is really similar to Whittard’s English Breakfast, including very strong notes of bergamot and black tea, but in the taste part, in contrast, is surprinsingly smooth and light. I’d say this blend is more nuanced than the standard Earl Grey, but manages to keep its character. Slightly above average.

Would i buy it again?: Not bad for the Assorted Pack average, but as an Earl Grey, Dilmah and others are far ahead in the race. My answer would be ‘no’.

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.

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!

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
197 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!
