5 Tasting Notes

O.M.G. This is like liquid heaven. I like this tea like I like my men: strong and hot. Maybe brew it with Smart Water—I like my men intelligent. Okay, back on topic. Take this with cream and brown sugar. I’m not a coffee drinker in the mornings—but when I need a strong jolt of caffeine, I’ll head over to Peet’s for a cup of Assam Golden Tip. Sometimes I’ll mix Assam Golden Tip with their Peppermint blend for a nice minty kick.

Oh – I never thought to use brown sugar – I bet that would be great!

My favorite green tea that’s not loose leaf. Loose leaf green tea clearly pwns the bagged green tea. However, this little treasure-in-a-bag has helped me through many headaches, sore throats, and tummy aches. I also typically drink this about 30 minutes before working out—something about green tea speeding up your calorie-burning process.

drank Yellow Label by Lipton
5 tasting notes

Crappiest black tea ever. It’s essentially water with a weak amount of caffeine. Not even adding cream could help this tea’s cause. Not a fan of Lipton black teas at all. The tea, once brewed, ends up being too watery and it’s not strong enough. Two negatives, which, in this case, does NOT make a positive. For shame Lipton, for shame. You shouldn’t be allowed to call yourself tea.

I know it’s been a while since you posted this review, but are you sure the tea you tried was Lipton Yellow Label. It would say specifically on the box or on a little tag attached to the bag, the words “Yellow Label” – in the US where you are Lipton also has a tea called “Lipton Black Tea” which I’ve only heard negative reviews about (like this one) but it is not the same blend as “Yellow Label”, which is popular all over the world.

A tad bit sweet, but it’s great for if you just want to wind down with a great book and a cup of tea. Try it iced on a hot summer day.

drank British Blend by Tetley
5 tasting notes

I used to drink Lipton. Oh how young and naive I was back then. Little did I know, there was a stronger, more delicious gem of a tea bag out there until I was introduced to Tetley British Blend. One sip of this, and you will never want to go back to any other black tea. The introduction of Tetley tea filled the Tetley teabag shaped hole in my heart. I typically take my black teas with little sugar, lots of milk—but not so much that I’m essentially drinking milk. Take it with evaporated milk, and 1/2 a teaspoon to a teaspoon of brown sugar. Mmmm, de-lish!
