drank Orange by Lipton
186 tasting notes

So I was bored, and I just dug through the annals of my family kitchen cabinet and pulled this out of nowhere. I was morbidly curious since I haven’t actually tried any of this before. I didn’t even realize it was an herbal until I put it in my cup.

What color did you think this one would brew up? It was a nice dark orange color, and it actually has an orange-y scent. To tell the truth, I was fairly surprised.

And the taste? I can’t say it’s really all that horrible. Actually, it kind of tastes like hot Tang. Tang is one of those beverages that is kind of gross but endlessly drinkable, at least to me. It’s kind of sweet, with a twang at the end, and it’s definitely much more drinkable than a lot of Bigelow’s offerings.

I really need to buy more high-quality decaf blends for my nighttime steeping, because I can’t live in decaf bagged teas and my one tin of Decaf Ceylon from Adagio.

Bio

22-year-old NYC girl just starting out on her tea adventures! I used to hate tea. If you asked me a few years ago what I thought of tea, I’d tell you it tasted like hot, dirty dishwater. Not anymore! I acquired a taste for tea when I started drinking peppermint tea for my upset stomach problems. From there I graduated to teas like chamomile and Lipton. But Lipton wasn’t strong enough!

I’m getting the hang of this loose leaf thing. Black’s my default, but I’ve found that I really love teas that fall into every category. I’m a purist – I always drink my tea neat. I prefer unflavored tea over flavored tea, and really dislike anything flavored with artificial-tasting substances. I’ve grown up a bit in my tea drinking, and I find that novelty appeals to me less and less.

I also am the happy girlfriend of the boy that created the tea randomizer, which can be found here: http://www.jaydeee.net/pickatea.php
