Flat tea. With a sour edge. KInda meh. Better than the super sweetened version with 41g of sugar. I kinda wish they had one with just a bit of sugar and no added citric acid. May 5g sugar? Just something to make it less boring. Especially since all the other flavoured varieties in this series have 41g! This is the only one out of the bunch I can stomach, as the other ones are so sugary that I get super thirsty after, and I can’t taste much of the actual tea so what’s the point? They really need a middle ground. Maybe one day I’ll grab one sweetened version and a bunch of unsweetened bottles so I can find my ideal balance and give it a more accurate review, since I feel like that aspect holds me back from delivering a proper assessment. Would I buy it again, on the run? only if there was no water for purchase available or other suitable alternatives.
Atleast with hot tea I can control the additives and customize to my whims
Strong malty aroma, slight bergamot notes.
Rich, full, mellow taste, with no bitterness or astringency. The bergamot notes are very subdued.
I wouldn’t call this tea Earl Grey, or even Earl Grey Flavoured, but it’s relatively passable for Lipton.
Flavors: Bergamot, Malt
It’s a good tea for mornings because it’s perky and fruity and also it’s bagged! (Loose leaf teas are far superior imo, but i don’t have time to mess around with them in the morning)! Plus, for the price I think it’s a good deal (I enjoy that you get 20 tea bags for around $5, whereas with other teas you couldn’t even get an ounce for $5!
I drink this when im studying a lot, and I always forget to take out the bag….the more it steeps the better it tastes to me (it gets a little bitter, but I find that refreshing)
Flavors: Berry, Flowers, Fruity, Green Melons
A lot of strawberries in aroma, seem rather natural, like a fruit pie. There also fresh, strawy notes of green tea.
And it really tastes like strawberry cupcake, The base green tea is very subtle and mellow, with no bitterness. I usually consider it a flaw, especially evident in big company etas, but here it fits quite well.
Not bad, not bad at all.
Flavors: Cake, Freshly Cut Grass, Fruity, Straw, Strawberry
I encountered this tea by pilfering it from a friends tea stash at work … and I believe this is how many people will come across this tea. It’s not aspirational, and I would not search high and low to find a tea bag.
On first examination of the tea bag the string was glued to the bag meaning I was not able to fully exploit the dipping capabilities boasted by the string and tab. Nonetheless, I plowed on with my expectations low.
The first sniff of the bag yields a pleasant fruity hit but this is not realised on completion of the brew. The tea is soft and round and very inoffensive but I wasn’t transported to a fruity English forest resplendent with a smorgasbord of summer fruits as I had hoped I might be by the packaging.
Despite this it was an agreeable drink and I would go back for another if I had run out of change for a coffee and had already reached my allotted caffeine allowance for the day and other options were slim.
Now I have finished the drink I am getting a slightly dry and astringent aftertaste in my mouth, but not enough to put me off this stalwart of roadside hotels across the land.
Flavors: Berry, Cheesecake, Dust, Strawberry
I had a browse through the other reviews of this tea, and found it quite interesting.
I wonder if it was presented in an unnamed, loose tea if the comments would be the same?
Yes, it’s Lipton. The ingredients include the word “flavour” (well, in my case, “aroma”, because I picked it up from Germany). It’s worth noting the ingredients also include “Erdbeere 1.3%” (Strawberry).
I actually found this a fantastic, easy drinking fruity tea. I often like strawberry flavoured things, but I’m not the biggest fan of tisanes, personally. I was surprised how good this black tea with a hint of strawberry was – it added a little sweetness and flavour, in an otherwise robust black tea.
This tea is important to stay within the brewing times – too little and the strawberry doesn’t have time to infuse (leaving only the flavouring), but too long and it becomes astringent.
It’s like a $15 bottle of wine, compared to a $150 bottle – I’m never going to serve it to at a fancy gathering, but it’s brilliant as a relaxed tea when I feel like a black tea, but something a little different.
I was quite impressed with this tea. It really lived up to it’s name! Even though I brewed it for 4 minutes, I’d recommend only 3, and check the water isn’t boiling but is 90 degrees or less. It’s perfect on it’s own, but adding honey might be a good idea for the sweet tooth’s out there.
Flavors: Baked Bread, Strawberry, Vanilla
