564 Tasting Notes
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
Cuddling on the couch with my dog, watching Big Bang Theory reruns, and drinking a nice mug of this tea. Absolutely perfect way to end a hectic day.
It’s creamy, apple-y, and has a nice cinnamon finish, which is rounded out by the almond slivers. It’s weird, because there is no actual tea in this tisane. But I can’t help loving it anyway.
Finally got my hands on some of this! I’ve been meaning to try it for a long time now. Regular Sleepytime bores me these days. I think I’ve just drunk too much of it. This variation is immediately identifiable because the dry bags smell very strongly of spearmint and just a hint of vanilla, whereas regular Sleepytime bags just smell like chamomile.
Steeped, the tea smells wonderfully of sweet vanilla, chamomile, lemongrass, and spearmint. Sipped, I taste primarily the chamomile, but the vanilla is definitely there, albeit subtly. I’ve had two cups of this tonight. I am enjoying it thoroughly. I think I’ll only buy Vanilla Sleepytime and Sleepytime Extra from now on! No more boring old regular stuff.
I cold-steeped this one at work, and I found it to be even more refreshing than hot. The bergamot presents itself as a sweet and crisp orangey note, and the more earthy and chocolatey notes from the base that I get when it’s been brewed hot are replaced by it. Perfect way to brew this tea for the summer.
