Woo Hoo, my first review on Steepster!
Admittedly, I am new to the world of teas. What is a budding enthusiast to do? Buy a bunch of teas at the supermarket to try, before getting into the loose stuff. :)
Well, I gave Lipton’s Blackberry Vanilla blend a whirl. I do like the pyramid filters. I feel like the quality of the tea is better than the dust often found in standard bags. Now onto the taste. Wellllll, Lipton didn’t lie when they said it was tart. I tried it without sweetener at first, but ended up putting a teaspoon of Splenda in it. It is way too tart for me to enjoy hot. To be honest, it doesn’t taste right to me hot. It reminded me of hot, watered down, Kool-Aid.
I let it sit in the mug on my end table until it cooled off, and then I poured it over ice. It was actually good that way. That is why I’m giving it a 50 rating. Detestable when hot, not bad when cold.
Flavors: Blackberry, Fruity, Tart
