As far as Lipton teas go, this sachet is fancy. Whole leaf green with lots of room for the leaves to expand.

Slightly acidic and definitely mandarin orange flavour. The green doesn’t present itself, so it is quite difficult to taste. I would never buy it, but as the only decent tea at a breakfast buffet, I would drink it again.

Flavors: Fruity, Orange Zest, Tangy

Preparation
195 °F / 90 °C 1 min, 45 sec

drank Yellow Label by Lipton
2449 tasting notes

I normally avoid Lipton, even if it is free, however I had been curious about the “yellow label” variety for a while.

I steeped the teabag in 250 mL hot water + soy milk ~1 minute. It is lightly floral, I think it would have been bitter if I hadn’t added milk. Typically English breakfast flavoured, it doesn’t have much to comment on other than the obvious floral notes.

Flavors: Floral, Tannin, Tea

Nice fruity aroma.
The taste is a mixture of decent green tea and fruits, warming and refreshing at the same time. Rather watery, but passable.

Flavors: Fruity, Raspberry, Straw, Strawberry

drank Delicate Mint by Lipton

253/365

I’m finding I’m drinking a lot of mint tea at the moment, even though it’s usually not a favourite of mine. I’m pretty sure it’s because it’s just so, so hot at the moment – mint, at least, has a kind of cooling effect thing going on even if I drink it hot. So. Mint it is.

This one’s pretty nice, and I think on the whole I prefer it to some other bagged brands (Twinings in particular, and possibly even Teapigs). It’s not too dank and heavy (I suppose it is called delicate…), and it retains a pleasant sweetness. My sample sachet doesn’t say, but I’m pretty sure it’s a spearmint/peppermint blend. It’s very similar to the Hampstead Tea I drank a few days ago.

I’d probably not actively seek this particular tea out in the future, since mint doesn’t generally do it for me, and because it’s nothing super special. It’s good, though; especially on a day like today when it’s at least 29 outside, and more like 34 in the office.

Can I go home yet?

drank Daring English Breakfast by Lipton
2035 tasting notes

I think this is just a marketing/packaging update to Lipton’s conventional English breakfast, but I do like the notion of a tea that is daring, even if this isn’t.

Departing coworker left a wrapped box of this on the “pay it forward” table at work; I snagged it for iced tea purposes. (Missouri has had August weather since May.)

But…considering all the ribbing and ripping I have extended to poor ol’ plain black Lipton over the years, I decided to give it legit consideration this morning before I threw ice in it.

This particular blend is less acidic and a little more smooth than I remember the plain black bagged stuff. No particular personality trait stands out. It’s just tea. But some 98-degree days, that’s really all you need.

I quite liked this one! The taste was of decent strength, especially considering it’s from Lipton. This is a nice and simple refreshing tea to have at any time of day, and is especially good on a cold day.

Average level of the corporate and bag-packed black tea.
Not much in aroma department.
Slight earthy and malty notes in taste, it certainly isn’t strong. Just an unobtrusive cheap tea that accompanied work quite well.

Flavors: Earth, Malt

Preparation
