21 Tasting Notes
I’ve been in the mood for blueberry teas lately and decided to give this one a try. The smell is pretty nice, but I feel that the tea itself lacks in flavor. It reminds me of when you’ve been chewing a piece of fruity gum and almost all the flavor is gone yet you can still taste just a little if you chew enough. I might finish the box off, but I wouldn’t buy this again.
I am obsessed with anything and everything peach, so I was really excited to try this, expecting it to be just as good (if not better!) than the other Lipton white tea flavors.
Unfortunately, though it smells amazing, the flavor is less than desirable. The first flavor that you taste is the peach, but a bitter, unpleasant artifical mango flavor quickly appears and leaves a bad taste in your mouth.
Just because I hate to waste money and food, I might be able to finish off the box, but this is definitely not something I’d ever buy again. I’m sure there are a million better teas out there than this one.
I really wanted to like this tea, because it smells pleasant, but I think it tastes too artifical and nothing like what I was hoping. The apple flavor isn’t too bad, but I found the cinnamon to be overpowering and the underlying flavors were weak and inconsistent. I definitely wouldn’t buy this again.
This is my first white tea, and given the fact that it’s your basic grocery store tea, I’d assume it’s not the best quality white tea, but nonetheless, this tasted very good and is something I’d definitely buy again.
It smelled amazing before I even opened the box, and the wonderful fruity smell only intensified as it steeped. The taste was light and delicate, and the blueberry was definitely the star of the show. This was a nice alternative to my usual strong black tea, but was still just as satisfying.
For me, peach teas are pretty hit or miss, which is a shame since peach is one of my favorite flavors of anything. I’ve found a lot of peach teas to be very strong and possessing a somewhat artifical taste, but the peach in this tea is delicate and doesn’t overpower the green tea flavor. When my taste buds are screaming for something peach-flavored, this is my go-to tea!
I admit, I’m biased when it comes to this tea. I grew up drinking this tea; both hot and cold. Compared to other plain black teas, it’s not very strong, but if you’re looking for a simple, inexpensive black tea to keep around, I’d recommend this one, because it works as sweet tea, plain tea, and even a nice hot cup with a dash of milk and some sugar. You can’t go wrong with Lipton.
I really want to like this tea, because it smells wonderful, but I just can’t bring myself to enjoy it, no matter how I prepare it. Whether served plain or with milk and sugar, the flavors seem somewhat bland and boring to me. There is nothing that special about this tea, but there really isn’t anything too horrible about it either. This is one of those teas that you just have to try for yourself.
