drank this one after the disappointing chai experience. i agree with zizu, there’s a bitter aftertaste to this one. wish i had milk or cream to soften the bite.
I need to buy this tea somewhere online in Ireland or the UK.
Where can I buy it? Any help would be greatly appreciated!
Google searches so far are showing up nothing but a box of this tea for 35 dollars! Must be good as its impossible to buy online or offline as far as I can see…
I’m usually pretty averse to artificial flavors, but somehow i find this Lipton tea totally delightful. It smells absolutely wonderful, and while the flavor is delicate, a little bit of honey seems to really bring everything together for me. It’s my husband’s favorite tea, and i usually wish i’d gone with this rather than whatever i’ve picked for myself when i make it for him. It doesn’t really have a tea flavor at all; it mainly just tastes like caramel. Yum!
I absolutely hate black teas (unless it’s sweet or iced tea) and I hate Lipton tea even more, but I’m so glad I took a chance on this one! I was pleasantly surprised to find this in pyramid mesh pouches, but the smell took me aback…it smelled just like Lipton’s regular tea. Disappointed, but hoping for the best, I made a cup and fell in love. Steeped, this turns into the most beautiful caramel amber color. The aroma is slight, but holds the attention with it’s vanilla caramel scents. The taste was wonderful, considering it’s a Lipton black tea. The black tea itself was not overpowering, but it was very present. But, toning it all down are the gentle notes of sweet savory vanilla smoothed over by the milky caramel tidbits which really makes this more of a cream tea. I will definitely keep this on hand…at work.
What sold me on this tea is what sold me on most teas: I held the box to my nose and lightly squeezed it to smell the aroma seeping out. And this one smelled of yummy desserts. Sold! It’s simple as teas are concerned, but is an excellent dessert tea. I even brewed a couple bags in a cup of water and used it for my oatmeal instead of plain water or milk and it was delightful.
