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.

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.

Awesome, thanks

drank Amaretto by Lipton
46 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.

drank Yellow Label by Lipton
22 tasting notes

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.

My friend gave me a few of these sachets, so I tossed them in the fridge in some water to cold brew overnight.

The result was a very red, very fruity (definitely some hibiscus), decent iced tea.

Not bad, considering it’s Lipton!

drank Yellow Label by Lipton
46 tasting notes

How i got it: Bought it

Experience: My everyday black tea, but i have to say, it’s a bit tricky. Under the right conditions, it can turn out pretty good, with a very balanced, well defined and rich flavor. On the other hand, it has the potential to be disappointing, leaving you with kind of a watery taste. In the end, i would stick with the ‘good’ rating.

Would i buy it again?: It has stayed as my evening tea for long, so the answer will be’ yes’ until i find something better for the same price.

drank Royal Ceylon by Lipton
46 tasting notes

How i got it: My workplace’s current tea of choice

Experience: This is one tea i drink when i want something a bit stronger than the usual black. Clear, intense, and the typical malty taste of Ceylon teas. Slightly bitter in the end (maybe due to oversteeping, though i only brew it for a bit more than 2 min.). Quite aromatic. Very good.

Would i buy it?: I’d say yes. Actually, i’m thinking about changing the default Lipton Yellow Label for this one, although i’m not sure if i will like strong tea every night

Typical of these Lipton Pyramid teas, this one is fantastic as an iced tea. The peach and mango are already amazing together, and chilled, this is just the perfect summer evening tea.
