Sipdown! The last six teabags in this box have been sitting around my cupboard (and my house) for a while now. So I decided to make a nice pitcher of this, iced. Gotta beat the heat AND clear out the tea clutter in my life!

I didn’t love this one hot, but iced, it’s simply divine! Berries taste best cold, to me. I’m getting a very mellow black base and mostly strawberry and raspberry, and possibly even some cranberry and honey notes. I have this theory that Lipton, as an American commercial tea brand, knows that most of their consumers drink their teas iced, and so they craft them to taste good iced.

That said, I won’t be restocking it. I like Lipton’s Vanilla Caramel tea better.

I made a bunch of this iced. It’s amazing! Just as good as it is hot, if not better. Sweet, refreshing, creamy, and the perfect mix of vegetal green tea and light fruitiness. Ideal summertime drink.

Having a mug of this in my Serenity Prayer mug. Because after the absolutely horrid day I had at work, I need it. And it’s much healthier than a beer.

I absolutely love this tea! The vanilla just gives the regular Sleepytime blend a more satisfying and soothing finish.

drank Vanilla Caramel by Lipton

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

Had this at a company event tonight, in lieu of coffee. It’s utterly unremarkable.

Bummer.

drank Nutty Almond Cream by Tiesta Tea

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.

Yuck. Disgusting. I can only taste the stevia. It’s like drinking sugar water with a twist of something vaguely fruity.

PASS. If I want a Sprite, I’ll crack open a can of it. I don’t want my tea to taste like it.

This stuff was so vile I threw it out.

Thank God it wasn’t my cup! I had one sip from my boyfriend’s mug. That was enough. It’s pretty awful.

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.

Yup, definitely still love this. One of the best vanilla flavored teas I’ve experienced. And it’s a rooibos! Two ordinary flavors come together to become extraordinary. It’s simple, but perfect.

I can’t stress enough how much I love this tea! Lemongrass and green tea were a match made in heaven. The pomegranate almost gives it a cranberry flavor. I love it. Tiesta green blends are the bomb diggity.

Bio

Hello! I’m a recent college graduate, trying to find my way in the world. I love literature, politics, and tea.

Favorites: black, oolong, and white teas (anything with chocolate, vanilla, nutty, or spice notes!); pu- erh, yerba mate, chamomile, tulsi.

I like green teas as long as they are blended with fruit and/ or spices, and I LOVE them when they’re floral.

I have a love-hate relationship with kombucha, and I’m very picky about my chai- It has to have a high-quality black tea base for me to really enjoy it.

Dislikes: Plain green teas, rooibos, honeybush, fruity herbals, hibiscus in high quantities, plain peppermint. (Although I am not opposed to trying blends that cross into these neighborhoods if they come from reputable companies.)

I’m not a swapper, but I hope we can still be friends :)

90-100: Perfection and heaven and magic, all in one cup.

70-89: Good.

50-69: Meh.

49 and below: Blerg.
