Yum yum, summer fruit tea! Normally, I avoid super fruity blends, but I just impulsively decided to try this one today. I’m glad I did! This tea is a perfect example of responsibly used hibiscus. Which is to say, hibiscus is listed in the ingredients, but I didn’t taste it. Thank goodness, because the hibiscus was what made me hesitate initially.
White tea and peach are a match made in heaven, in my opinion. They both have a mildly sweet and floral flavor, which is perfect for July. The mango presents itself during the sip, and the peach echoes in the aftertaste, but neither dominates over the other.
Well done, Lipton.
Flavors: Carrot, Mango, Peach
I got a new box of this last night. I forgot how much I love it. It’s like having sweet, caramel-y dessert. But it’s healthy.
It’s amazing as a hot tea, and positively divine as an iced tea. I hope they never stop stocking this at my favorite stores.
Flavors: Burnt Sugar, Caramel, Kettle Corn, Vanilla
These Lipton Pyramid teas are my guilty pleasure. This one is my favorite. The base is fairly astringent, but if you catch it early and ditch the teabag after one or two minutes, it’s actually a really tasty tea. The caramel and vanilla make it creamy and sweet.
Vanilla teas appear to be my weakness. Lol
ahhh… The PBR of the tea world.
Nothing complex, compelling, or even interesting to this tea. It’s brews your basic crowd-pleasing iced tea. It suits my needs by taking the place of my after-work beer as I try to get healthier, and at $4/8ounces you cant go wrong as it doesn’t try to be anything it’s not…
Missed my morning Yorkshire Gold the other day, and didn’t want to get into my work stash, so I picked out the tea that they have at the office—Lipton. Brewed for 3.5 minutes with one packet of sugar. When I drank it, I mentally quoted Sherlock: “surprisingly ok.” Nothing great, and it has a bit of a strange peppery quality, but I was expecting something absolutely terrible based on most of the reviews here (I’d had it as a kid, but not since). I compare it to a decent American adjunct lager in the world of craft beer—not something I’d go out of my way to drink, but not something I’d avoid if I were offered one.

I’m not 100% sure the tea I have is white tea. I am not sure if it’s green or herbal. I don’t think it’s black. Regardless as it came from the TTB I don’t have the box so I can’t look at ingredients to enter it somewhere else… so assuming it’s similar enough to this tea.
Anyway… Whatever kind of tea madametj put in the Sample TTB… this is great.
It’s a Lipton bag, so I almost didn’t try it, but after the Blackberry Vanilla surprised me, I actually had to give the other pyramid bag a go.
WOW! I am glad I did. This little bag gave me low expectations, but much to my surprise…
It smells like a Peachy-o in a cup!!! and tastes like one too!
I added extra sugar just to indulge in my childhood because what I have here is not tea. it is a cup of PEACHY-O.
Surely you guys have had them before eh? They’re horrible little corn syrup candy chews I had as a kid before I knew dyes and HFCS were bad for me and I don’t eat them anymore but DAMNIT IF I CAN APPROXIMATE THEM IN HEALTHY TEA FORMAT WITH A LITTLE EXTRA SUGAR I AM FREAKING GAME!
Just sitting here hovering over this cup is a delight. It smells of childhood happiness. Reminds me of happy times on the front porch of my grandparent’s house sharing a bag of such candies… And it reminds me of real peaches only in the vaguest round-about manner, but that’s okay.
I’m not sure why this flavor came out of a tea meant to taste like peach and mango… but it made me happy. SO BE IT. :)
Thanks to madametj for including this. it made me super happy. :)

I decided to try the Lipton Blackberry Vanilla simply because it came in pyramid bags and I’d never used one before. Well this was better than expected. It’s a pretty strong tea for something that comes from Lipton. I am used to loose leaf now and generally tea bags don’t do it for me anymore. I doubt I’d bother buying this, but glad I tried it.
The blackberry is very strong. The vanilla is not very noticable. It’s not bad. The flavor is not too sour.
Overall not bad. Not overwhelmingly good. I liked it well enough. :)
Well lets start off with I went to buy this tea and I thought ’ OHHH THE PACKET SMELLS NICE!! ’ so I thought lets give it a go. I was so excited to then be disappointed by its taste!! I followed the instructions on the back and I take one little sip… BAM!! ALL I TASTE IS LEAVES! I DONT GET THE WHOLE POINT OF IT BEING CALLED ‘FOREST FRUITS’ AND THE AMAZING BERRY TASTE’ WHEN IT DOESNT EVEN TASTE LIKE THAT. So just to make sure i had a mouthful and was still disappointed… I would rate this -9999999 if there were the option!
