We have a ittle coffee/tea bar in the lunch room where I work and this is one of the offerings.
You pretty much get what is advertised; peach and mango with a little sweetness. Not a terrible choice if you’re after something strictly herbal but I prefer my tropical teas somewhat more juicy and flavourful.
Flavors: Mango, Peach, Sweet
So I bought something from Poshmark and the seller included a couple of fragrance samples and a bag of this tea (very sweet of her.)
I had coffee before work this morning and now I’m home from work, sipping this tea. I didn’t have high hopes as I’m not a huge fan of black tea but if you drown anything in enough honey, it’s going to make it nice and sweet and take away that strong bitterness and some of the astringency and that is exactly what I did. LOL
With the honey and some almond milk, it was quite good. I wouldn’t have enjoyed it otherwise. Still has a slightly astringent aftertaste but it’s nothing that I can’t tolerate.
This is a tea bag I picked up at a hotel in Kortrijk, Belgium a few months ago. I was quite impressed by the look of the Lipton tea bags nowadays, thinking that the tea might have improved as well, but there I was so wrong ;-)
The bag indicates “exclusive selection”, but I wonder what they consider “exclusive”. This is green tea without any flavour really, and any hotel that tries to guarantee a certain quality level should maybe ask a tea drinker for advice.
Flavors: Green, Watery
Straw-like nettle character and fairly natural mango make up a really nice, warming, pleasant aroma combination.
The taste is mainly nettle, with only a bit of mango showing through. It’s not bad but you can tell that this tea comes from a big company.
Flavors: Mango, Straw
I usually avoid this tea because of how I think it tastes weird, but when grandma makes you a cuppa…you drink it. Still think it tastes weird and I can’t put my finger on it. Here people claim this is “normal” tea and compare it to other “normal” tea which usually means Pickwick’s English Blend, but that one packs much more of a punch…
Do not be deceived: this is not green tea with citrus. This is weak lemonade. However, it’s not nastily artificially sweet, nor does it have enough citric acid to curl your tongue. And when it’s in triple digits and you’ve been doing VBS with a cluster of fourth graders , on ice, it’ll do. I brought the rest of the bottle home and halved it with some Brew La La strawberry green tea and it turned into a nice little fruit punch cooler.
Quite strong aroma, a bit sweetish, but with quince flavour being the most evident (and pretty natural).
The taste is pretty straightforward, typical to big company flavoured teas. There’s a faint note of not-very-high-quality base green tea, quince flavouring, slight sourness, very low astringency.
Not bad but also in no way special. Just passable.
Flavors: Fruity, Quince, Sour
Had with a Vietnamese vermicelli bowl for lunch today. The tea smelled like swamp. Scratch that. It smelled like a murky puddle thick with algal growth. It tasted like flat and sour buttery dry grass.
The food deserved better, like a basic Vietnamese jasmine green tea. The restaurant even used proper temperature water in the pot.
Ordering a tea in a restaurant is always a gamble, unless they have stated the brand. But it’s sad to see Lipton, or some other famous brands considered as high-end brand here sometimes.
Pretty standard Lipton “fruit” flavoured “tea”, artificial and perfume-y. Essentially drinkable, but that’s it.

Finishing off my second little stick of this, which was from a tea swap with Australian tea friend Brianna of Instagram.
Honestly, it’s not quite what I expected. I don’t taste any apple at all, and very little matcha. The strongest note is actually the basil, which gives it a more savory spa-water kind of feel. There’s also some lemon alongside it adding a nice tartness. At times, the basil actually has an anise-like flavor as well, which reminds me of fresh fennel.
Very interesting! Not something I would drink every day, but I could imagine sipping on something similar at a high-end salon or a spa, possibly with added cucumber slices.
Flavors: Anise, Basil, Fennel, Grass, Lemon, Savory, Sweet
I had this tea bag from their “A moment to…” series. I asusme it is still same.
Oh well, where to start? Let’s start with a note that two minutes steeping was more than enough. Although their teas are Rainforest Aliance Certified, it doesn’t mean it’s a good cuppa.
It’s indeed quite strong and bitter, but as well somehow plain in tates. I couldn’t notice anything but bitterness. Two minutes steep caused it wasn’t ovewhelming though. There was some other note, which I could call malty, but not really sure about that. And that typical Lipton’s cardboard…
Flavors: Bitter, Cardboard, Malt
Persian Earl Grey. 3 words chosen randomly from a dictionary, strung together in seemingly no rhythm nor reason. When I think of Persian I think of a cat roaming around in the sand. When I think of Earl I think of the man who moved into my neighborhood last year, knocking on my door informing me that he is in fact a sexual predator. Grey, an indecisive color. You’re either black or white. Choose one. However, when blended together a sort of harmony arises. Gone with the indecision. Gone with the fear of being sexually assaulted. Gone with the smell of a sweaty cat. Instead, a nice consensual rainbow of sweet aroma arises in an otherwise normal tea mug. When you drink this tea you feel like Cyrpus the Great ruling the once great empire of Persia. you feel like a lion, king of the jungle, shaking the ground with its mighty roar. You feel as though all color has become brighter, clearer, and more aesthetically pleasing to the eye. Just kidding. This tea is just ok. 5/10
Whoops, I made myself this tea and then left it behind all day to work on a jigsaw puzzle. The flavor is honestly perfectly good. Nothing special about it, but it’s decently robust, and I’m enjoying my cup of it with some milk. The reviews are way too hard on this one.
That’s true: Lipton doesn’t get a lot of love around here. I have had fair-to-decent experiences with their plain looseleaf teas and some of their pyramid bag varieties, but our local stores don’t stock anything but their standard unflavored black varieties.
Lipton is hit or miss. I actually don’t mind the flavoured stuff, I never had thier loose leaf. But the Yellow Label; and few other bagged I had were cardboard-y to me somehow.
Lipton is my go-to for sweet iced tea. I’ve never tried any of their loose leaf or flavored blends though.
I just flipped through the current product listing — I think the pyramid bags I thought were OK are all long gone.
It’s very unlike me to actually turn to a green tea as my first choice, especially my first choice of the morning. Maybe it’s the mint that’s calling to me or maybe it’s the matcha. Or both perhaps.
The flavor isn’t anything too special, not even really very minty. I have another bag of this but I’m not really in a hurry to have it again soon.
