We were at Target yesterday and I really really wanted to get more of that chamomile from Celestial Seasonings that I just finished off because I really liked it.
But I went with this and the peach tea from Celestial Seasonings instead because I just wanted to try them once and now that my sister is living with us…she apparently likes tea, and since they aren’t really close to me and they have like the family tea cupboard in the kitchen I figured they’d like these ones.
I really never thought I’d like a Lipton tea. That’s like one of my least favorite brands. Maybe I’ve just tried all the wrong things from them, I don’t know.
But when I saw that it had dragon fruit AND melon I HAD to try no matter what brand!
Unless it’s adagio…then it’s a slightly different story xD
The dragonfruit and melon combo was actually kinda great. I can’t believe other better companies haven’t paired these flavors before! I love dragonfruit and melon teas for the most part, and ughh that mix.
It’s definitely not the best tea ever,but I will for sure keep this one in my stash and finish it off-it’s actually……..
I know, me saying a Lipton tea is good. Crazy, huh? XD Next I’ll find a good Adagio tea. xD Imagine that haha wow! Well the tea world constantly is surprising me! :P
And I am not going to be ashamed that I liked a Lipton tea…least for now… :P
Flavors: Creamy, Fruity, Melon, Sweet
I too was very sorry to find I couldn’t buy this anymore. I like to make a pot of black, green or white tea blended with herbal tea(s). This Lipton Honey Lemon was the perfect bag to finish a combination with. Likewise, if I didn’t want to have too much caffeine when brewing a pot of black tea (which I drink with lemon and sugar or honey), I would substitute one or two bags of this one. It would keep the flavors going, but insure I didn’t get too much caffeine. I suppose I could look for a substitute, but I’m still nursing my last dozen bags of this!
How i got it: Tried it while having supper at my cousin’s house
Experience: When you are eating at the table with your family, you can’t be too picky with your steeping times, hehe. So i tried to guess something like 3 mins, and try this tea. Aroma wise, it’s very light, and took me some effort to distinguish the tea scent, which was a mild, powered-down version of the classic Ceylon tea smell, with less fruity and more floral notes. In the taste side, that was the case too. Less caramel and crisp notes than usual, and more smooth, floral ones. I’d have liked a bit more intensity (maybe a couple seconds more could have helped), but this was a fairly good tea.
Would i buy it?: Maybe I’ll get a box someday to reevaluate
My mom teases me because I always make my sweet tea using a recipe from an old Southern Living cookbook. Surely any good Southern girl can make sweet tea without a recipe! But no, not me. I’m a recipe junkie through and through, a rule follower to the bitter end.
I’m sure we all have a certain way we like to make our sweet tea, but if you don’t then this recipe is super easy. You basically just boil four family-size tea bags for a minute, steep for ten minutes, then mix with a cup of sugar and enough water to fill a 2 1/2 quart pitcher. Voila! Super sweet, super easy Southern iced tea!

I prefer loose leaf tea, but keep a few bagged teas at home… can get these at a closeby supermarket, and when they are on sale, I usually stock up for friends and family who simply stick to ‘oh, just a bag please…’
No fan of Lipton, but this is quite yummy tea for a bagged tea. It’s fresh and brews a decent cup.
When I am in a hurry, I will brew it too and enjoy a lovely cuppa … shshh. don’t tell…
Flavors: Citrusy, Orange
This one wasn’t in the database, though most other Pure Life teas seem to be. I tried finding a listing for it on Lipton’s site or the Pure Life site but no such luck; so none of the information for this is really filled out…
We just starting carrying this in our store; it’s the only non-black Pure Life drink we stock so I got curious and picked up a bottle to drink during my walk home. I really didn’t like it; even the overly sweetened other Pure Life drinks I’ve had were much, much better.
I thought that it had too much honey flavour; to the point where it was cloying and almost fake tasting. I would say that it was like someone had just squeezed honey straight into my mouth were it not for the weird, sour taste from the green tea. It was very ‘slimey’ and kind of seaweed tasting? Seaweed and honey should definitely never be a thing.
Nope; not for me. Though, it did keep me quenched on the way home so that was a positive I suppose. Probably the only one, though.
Flavors: Honey, Seaweed, Sour
