6 Tasting Notes
This was my mum’s favorite tea, so I didn’t get to taste it all that often. I used to steal a sip every once in a while, and was always astounded by the freshness in it. I knew it only as spearmint, not aware of it containing black and spearmint, because I never read the labels on the box.
My mom doesn’t buy it anymore, bent on spending less money, which is why my favorite brands of tea are lost to the ages, but she does still buy tea. A lot.
And spearmint is one of the types that I drink the most, surpassing even my green tea drinking. It’s our favorite tea, but I could never say no to a good cup of green, black, or chamomile.
I should write a review for spearmint alone, but my childish mind kept no track of what this one tasted like, other than the refreshing-ness.
Flavors: Mint, Spearmint
I used to drink this as a child whenever I couldn’t sleep or had stomach aches. It was my favorite tea, if only because I wasn’t allowed to drink a lot of it. Along with green tea, this drink basically makes up my childhood nights working on a math book with my mother.
It was fun.
I never got any bad taste from it. It smelled like apples and tasted about as off as anyone would think a medical herb would. Not quite as good as green tea, but nice. I didn’t get to ever taste it with sugar until I got another brand of it, so I’ll never know if I would have actually liked this tea. My mother never drank it, it was mine only, so I loved it.
Not many seem to like it here, which is fine. It was only the only medicine I ever actually liked tasting, but otherwise, it wasn’t my nightly drink.
If you’ve got a pain in your stomach or can’t sleep, drink any brand of chamomile tea you may find, but this isn’t strictly the type of tea that aims to be enjoyed (though I do remember commenting to my mother that it didn’t need sugar anyway, it was already sweet enough).
As expected of what is one of the most famous brands of tea (it seems to me, anyway), Lipton’s tea is delicious. This is black tea, if I’m assuming correctly, and I think it tastes fine warm, but when my friends offer me a glass of ice cold sweet tea, I know why most prefer it served cold.
Just recently I tried it with milk, to reach a childhood dream of mine to be a British princess because reasons, and it also tasted delicious! I’d like to try another brand of black tea, maybe to figure out if this is actually black or some strange brew I’ve never heard of, and perhaps to actually have a proper review to this tea.
I can tell you this: a single pack comes off deliciously strong, but that’s probably because I didn’t use the recommended amount of water, but I’m fine with that. As I said, the milk made it all the better.
Sadly, I can provide little to no actual recommendation, but according to what I’ve seen in the US: Go ahead! This tea is delicious, and popular for that reason.
Flavors: Dark Bittersweet, Milk
I grew up on green tea, so this is me rating my infancy. Although it’s not as strong as the tea I drank before I entered middle school, this tea has become the closest substitute for it. I no longer drink only green tea, I keep variety, but it’s still got a place in my cupboards.
As far as taste goes, it’s not refreshing like a spearmint cup, nor is it as sweet as black tea (if you like adding sugar), but it’s never tasted bitter at the tongue of childhood me, so it’s definitely a fabulous start for anyone wanting to taste something different to their standard cup o’ tea.
Flavors: Dry Grass, Sweet, Tea
