Someone gave me a gift card to drugstore.com, so of course I don’t buy anything but tea. :) Grew up with the plain old Lipton tea bags, but these are their attempt to keep up in the growing loose tea market. First sniff smells to me like pure strawberry. Not overwhelming, just a nice light hint of strawberry. Supposedly there is passion fruit in there, which I’m not quite sure that I could identify if I tried :). After steeping, the liquid is a medium colored brown and smells wonderfully sweet, and less like strawberry. My guess is that is the passion fruit chiming in. Served iced, its a very nice light sweet fruit tea, predominantly tasting of strawberry. Pleasantly suprised for a bagged tea.
Red Tea with Harvest Strawberry and Passionfruit
Red Tea comes from South Africa’s rooibos plant. Explorers first discovered red tea centuries ago in Africa, where it was consumed as part of a balanced diet. Now LIPTON offers you the sweet taste of red tea, with the bright flavors of ripe strawberry and exotic passionfruit.
