The exact name of the tea I had was Sir Thomas Lipton Lemon Herbal Infusion (Sir Thomas Lipton is said to be a distinctive range of specialty teas by Lipton), but I don’t think it’s very different from this everyday lemon tea offered by the same company so I am writing the review here.
Like many previous reviewers, I drank this because I was not feeling well. Many people commented that its flavour resembled that of cold remedies. I have never tried cold remedies from the West, but I want to say that it tasted very much like a traditional sore throat remedy – a drink made with preserved citrus fruits – in Chinese culture too. The dry leaves smelt strongly of dried orange/mandarin/lemon peels, which was rather repellent I must say… when brewed the liquor tasted equally strong, to the extent that it could be somewhat bitter. It’s probably quite good for sore throat, but I certainly would not drink it if I wasn’t ill!
