got this from a friend. – Hmm, rarely drink T+ (fruit, aroma,….) just prefer my teas pure without any addition, so wasn’t very enthusiast at first.

Open: noted very strong rasberry taste, very sweet. Hope this is going o.k. as I really hate fruity, sweet teas.

Cup:
water 75 C. degrees
Teapot: Chatsford 2 cup
1 bag

sums up to….

pure delight. oh wow. Rasberry taste hardly detectable in cup, which is a huge plus. It’s a rather pleasant smooth cup with a bit of extra umpf. (reminds me of elderflower somehow)

Would never ever have picked this one myself, so pleasantly surprised.

Love the Clipper teas series, have the Earl Grey (my fave), the green, and the everyday tea.

Clipper seems to be taken over most of the popular brands here rather quickly. They are a big hit here at the moment, some types are not available here though (yet..?)

Will def. buy this one again.

Wonderful, bold assam. yummie. At times, I drink it with whipped cream to make it extra special. :0 in the Frisian way.
Also very nice without cream/sugar. Bold, no bitterness though. And tea doesn’t stew.

one of the few bagged teas I really, really like, and even prefer over some loose leaf assams…

195 °F / 90 °C 3 min, 30 sec

drank Organic White Tea by Clipper

hardly drink white tea (too….&…) but since I like Clipper teas, and the brand is now being introduced here (discounts, one free, etc.) I decided to try the white one.

appearance: dark golden, kind of orange coloured tea. Incredibly smooth, cannot really say what is tastes like, it’s just delicate, & smooth. Did I already say that?
smoothest teas I have had in a long time.

It’ll be great for ice tea during summers.

I need a morning kick, so drink this now and then, late at night and/or before going to bed.

nice.

bought this from an ethnic grocery store. (Russian)/
ceylon fbop.
needed a ceylon, and wanted to save on shipping costs, hence the search for it locally.

great tea, no citrus aftertaste. very smooth, dark cup. not bitter.
3 euros for a pound of tea, average – yet good tea for that price.

Preparation
195 °F / 90 °C 3 min, 45 sec

nice green. Nothing special, but if you are in a hurry and don’t want to fuss with loose leafs in the pot, this one is just about right.

smells delicious, nice clean green tea taste. very clear golden yellow.

Clipper as a brand finally introduced here in NL!!!
Their Earl Grey is the best bagged tea on the market, and my staple tea.

this one is very nice as well. Tea that is on the market here tends to be weak and bland (we are a coffee nation, most coffee per head- ), however, I prefer a good old, strong English cup of tea, and that is just what this is.

strong, mix of assam and ceylon. yummie. box 0f 40 tips gone in no time….
