Hm. Okay. This is better than the Tropical I had the other day, although it’s very artificial, pow-in-your-face kinda tea. I don’t mind it, it’s cheap (2-3 euros/20), but it also left slime on my teacup — although that could well be the severe hard water issues I have here.

Flavors: Artificial, Mango, Mineral, Peach

drank Tropical Fruit by Lipton

This is such a strange tea, I really can’t quite make whether I like it or not. Grapefruit, kind of, but perfumey (not soapy like the other day). Tart citrus as well. I much prefer Tarte Citron (lemon tart) to this one, or the Peach Mango, which I need to review still.

Flavors: Citrus, Grapefruit, Perfume, Tart

drank Tropical Fruit by Lipton

Made this with water that had cooled significantly so I’m unsure if that’s why it tastes so… unexpectedly. There’s grapefruit, yes, but it’s… soapy? I get pineapple, kind of, but it’s… floral? I don’t know, this is just not quite right, even though I can tell where it wants to go.

Flavors: Floral, Grapefruit, Pineapple, Soap

Shockingly sweet citrus/grapefruit tea. I need to have it again because I must’ve done something wrong – it was almost cotton candy sweet.

Thanks MissB for the sample!
I enjoyed this cup, but found it quite astringent at first. As it cooled, the caramel note emerged more. I wish I had added a touch of milk now!
Not super memorable, but tasty :)

Second time I’ve had this (first was yesterday), and I’ll say it’s decidedly different today. Not as chocolately? Mind you, yesterday was another of those hard water situations, whereas today the kettle in the hotel seems clean and fresh with zero buildup. So, who knows.

Regardless, this had a bigger punch of flavor yesterday. Today it’s mild at best, if pleasant. However I’m not so much a fan of pear in tea to be – YES!! Perhaps someone who really loves this type of flavoring would appreciate it more. Plus, the chocolate is completely out of sight today. Boo. Too subtle for me.

It smells better than it tastes, but it still tastes really, authentically like a lemon tart! So delicious, I can’t quite figure it out.

Damnit; I just finished writing a note for this and Steepster ate it!

Anyway, these are on sale for $1 at my store this week so on one of the days when I didn’t have time to bring tea with me to work I bought one. I’m only half surprised to find it already in the Steepster database. The picture they’re using is the old bottle design though; the new one is much prettier and appealing.

I’ve had like 1/4 of a bottle in the fridge all week, finishing it now while I pack my work lunch for tomorrow. It tastes much more like ‘real’ tea than any other bottled “Iced Tea” I’ve ever had, but it’s still a touch too sweet for me. They do sell a plain, unsweetened one though and it might be worth checking out.

After I’m done packing lunch I’m gonna watch the Voice Season 8 premiere. If Tre wasn’t busy ‘releasing a week’s built up tension’ I’d invite him to watch too like we did last season. I think if he knew how much I share about him on here he’d be mortified.

“Strangers know I masturbate!?”

“Tre, anyone with a brain knows you masturbate.”

Also shout out to my Aunt Jill! Got a letter in the mail not too long ago from her where she mentioned having found my Steepster blog online (wont get into how). Not sure if you’re reading these tasting notes regularly now, but if you do you’re probably as mortified as Tre would be.

drank French Vanilla by Lipton

Was cleaning out the cupboard and found a box of this. Decided to pull out two bags to take to work and give one to a coworker. Was not expecting anything great because it’s been in the cupboard FOREVER cuz I didn’t care for it.

I must have a palate problem because this was GOOD! I did add a touch of sugar too. Sad that when this box is gone I’ll probably replenish! UGH! I’m not a bagger….I’m not a bagger!!!!

Who cares who makes it or whether it comes in a bag as long as you enjoy it? So, enjoy it!

drank Green Tea by Lipton

Maybe this isn’t fair to this tea but ah well such is life. When I first had a cup of this I thought it was pretty decent. But over the weekend I had my high quality sencha loose leaf and then came back to this with completely different feelings. I always compare this tea with Bigelow Green as they seem to be on a similar playing field. I would say I now prefer Bigelow green over this. Reason being I’m detecting some not so great side tastes in the Lipton now and an odd after taste. Yes Bigelow is more bland tasting but it doesn’t seem to have the odd aftertaste or side tastes Lipton has been giving me.

Donating this to the tea cache in the work break room ;-)

drank Green Tea by Lipton

I’d recommend this green to someone looking for an inexpensive green tea fix. Claims over bitterness etc… are usually accompanied with stories about oversteeping. The package says 1-1.5 minutes. I do 1.5 minutes and it turns out well every time. I’ve had loose leaf Sencha tea and yes this Lipton tea is quite different. But it’s also way less expensive than a good Sencha. I would rate this a bit higher than Bigelow green tea, seems more caffeinated too.

Wow, this is a thick, buttery, caramel tea. It is like a super dense, chewy caramel. It is almost too rich for me, as in this cup is good but this isn’t something I could have often. Still I am so grateful for the chance to try it because the smell alone is worth it. Thanks MissB!!

drank Earl Grey by Lipton
321 tasting notes

It isn’t as horrible as most of the other reviewers have suggested (the packaging of the tea bag I used was rather different from that in the pic, but there’s apparently no difference in the name, so I suppose we are talking about the same tea). Yes, the bergamot flavour may not be the best one in my life and it’s kinda like bergamot + a bit of lemon, but it tastes okay. The tea base is on the earthy side and I prefer a slightly more floral and sweeter base. But as an everyday tea, this is good enough!

My sister made this for me to warm me up during a big snow storm. This tea gets a very strong bitter orange flavour if steeped for too long.. not one my favorites but did the trick.

Flavors: Green, Orange

What a good sister! Too bad the tea was lackluster :(

Thanks for the sample of this one, MissB! Short note because I’m on my phone, but the aroma of the dry tea is deliciously caramelly. Steeped, it stays about the same, but it doesn’t translate to the flavour quite as well as I’d like, though that could perhaps be fixed by adding sweetener. I still rather enjoyed it for what it was, particularly since it’s a bagged tea. Would drink again, happily. Brewed at 100C for 2 min.

drank Blueberry Muffin by Lipton
1349 tasting notes

Well, this isn’t a fruit tea, so I need to change that. It’s a black with added flavors, and surprisingly good ones. I actually get “McDonald’s crappy Blueberry muffin” out of this… Or what I’d imagine it to be. The commercials have two ladies taking a bite out of their cups, and showing a Blueberry muffin. Pretty accurate!

Flavors: Artificial, Blueberry, Cake

Preparation
1 tsp 12 OZ / 354 ML

I think if McDonald’s changed the name of their muffin as per your suggestion they might even be able to trademark it and sell way more haha

Fjellrev

Oddly enough, you make me want to experience this crappy blueberry muffin you speak of.

MissB

Oh gosh. Well, imagine a muffin devoid of any nutrients whatsoever, but it’s like crack, you can’t stop eating it. Interestingly, McDonald’s in France and Belgium don’t sell them… Croissants and macarons all the way!

Really though, the ad isn’t my creation, it’s on TV in France constantly.

whatshesaid

omggggggggggg Croissants and macarons at McDonalds!?!?!?!?!?

MissB

Ah! Somehow missed the croissants and macarons mention. Yep – McDo (what people call it here, pronounced MAC-Doe) has their own little McCafe’s, and they serve all sorts of French food. It’s quite shocking… they also have lots of Americanized food which makes me laugh every time.

I love the smell of this tea, but I think that’s where the love stops. It’s pretty sour—to the point where I don’t think it’d be salvageable with an unlimited amount of sweetener. I’m definitely going to put this on my list of iced-only teas. The vanilla is lost, and that makes me sad.

Flavors: Sour

drank Caramel Tea (Thé Caramel) by Lipton

Strong bagged black tea with even stronger caramel smell. Pretty straightforward stuff, but needs sweetener to bring out the flavor at all. Needed to add some cream because it’s just too strong for my stomach.

Grabbed this in France, added description, ingredients and translated it as best I could.

My mother bought some of this tea for me in an attempt to buy me a “fancy” tea (she really doesn’t get my tastes in tea), which I appreciate but this is just not that great. Thankfully it was partially saved by adding a lot of honey. I wish I could say exactly what was wrong with it but it was just kind of ..blah.
It’ll do in a pinch, though – so there’s that.
