The taste is quite basic and neutral, not pleasant, but not unpleasant. To me the only advantage of this tea is its low price. I would recommend people to drink this daily just as an added flavor to water but not to “enjoy the tea”.
I bought this five years ago when visiting in NY. Recently visited, went looking for tea, found this. Knew I must have been the one who bought it, as my very recognizable printing was on the box in bold marker “This is BLACK tea”. ( So many boxes of Lipton green tea are yellow and green boxes I wanted to make sure nobody looking for green tea would drink this one in error.) Since I can’t drink too much caffeine, I was glad to find it. Even five years old, it was worth drinking. NOT GREAT, mind you, but I was still glad it was there so I could enjoy decaf tea at our daughter’s house. I tried comparing it to Twinings decaf English and decaf Irish Breakfast teas. It was not the time. This was weaker by comparison—but in fairness, the other two teas were only six months to a year old, not five years old, like this one! Will save the comparison testing for another time when I have a newer sample of this one—whenever that may be. Good old reliable Lipton pekoe and orange pekoe black teas, always good hot with lemon and sugar! The regular (caffeinated) is the black tea I grew up with. Still makes a reliable cuppa.
I am comparing this to its sister product, Lipton White Tea with Island Peach and Mango. This one I found in NY recently. I brewed my last cup of the other and a cup of this in order to compare them. The mango flavor is much more pronounced than the peach in this blend. The scent is as heady as walking into a bodega: tropical and fruity. I brewed both cups using lightly boiled water (so, just under boiling temp), for maybe four & 1/2 minutes. Oddly, though both teas are white, this one brewed much darker, nearly as dark as a green tea`would steeped for that length of time. This one is fruitier, stronger tasting. Turns out I prefer the peachier blend of the other; it’s not as fruity, not as mango-ey, and is a lighter, not as sweet flavor as this. I will use this when making my multi-tea blends, as the fruit will blend well with both herbal and plain teas.
Flavors: banana, Fruity, Mango, Peach
I’m very sorry this was my last pyramid ‘bag’. I really like the green, not-quite-floral clean taste this has. It’s a light, clean bright tasting cup of white tea, with peach-to-nectarine notes. I drank it today to compare it to the other Lipton Peach Mango pyramid. This one is MUCH better, and I wish I could find it again. Maybe it’s in another part of the country, like the one I’m comparing it to is. Too bad this one isn’t here in the Chicago area. I would buy more of it again in a heartbeat!
Flavors: Floral, Green, Mango, Peach
‘Bright and clean’ is my impression. For years I have used a bag of this while making a blended pot of herbal and other peach teas. Alas, it’s another one Lipton has discontinued. Today I decided to rate it on its own. I’d previously loved it for its rich peach scent, and ability to blend beautifully with other teas. Today, though I really noticed its mango qualities. There’s that ‘edge’ of mango taste throughout, with a bare peach sweetness at the end. The white tea essence is there yet understated. It’s got a lovely clean quality, very drinkable, as in numerous cups without getting tired of it. Lipton seems to have abandoned their boxed sets of pyramid teas, this among them. I’m very sorry to see it go.

I’ve been going hog wild with my new 3-in-1 pitcher from David’s Tea. Making iced tea is a snap, and I thought this one would be a great one to ice. I love Lipton’s Summer Fruits tea, so I figured I’d like this one.
It’s very peachy. It’d be great on a hot day, I’d say, and the white tea goes well with the peach. Nice and light. I’d have liked more mango in there. I have yet to try it hot. Overall, pleased!
Flavors: Fruity, Mango, Peach
Bought this on impulse at Target this weekend as a house-warming gift to myself. Just tried it at work after lunch.
First impression: bag smells great, tropical and can’t detect the jasmine.
As it brews: was surprised at how long the water was clear, its a very yellow green tea.
Also what are the white dots floating in the tea bag?? – not natural looking!
Tasting: Orange is main note I am getting with sweetness being lent from the passionfruit flavor (barely detectable). I get a slightly floral aftertaste but nothing distinctly jasmine. I’m not getting much green tea taste, its tastes like water infused with orange, passionfruit and jasmine as opposed to a green tea with these ingredients.
Overall pleasant experience especially the aroma. I only steeped for 2:15 min. because I read the reviews and some said it gets bitter, may experience with temps/times for this one or try it iced. I had low expectations so I can dig this.
Flavors: Flowers, Orange, Orange Zest, Passion Fruits, Tropical
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!
