I know this tea have lots of disrespect here. I completely understand it, because it’s so common – it can’t be good. Anyway, I will try to be unbiased.

I rather did supershort steep and it looks like I let it brew for 10 minutes at least.
I can finish it. That’s the positive. But tea itself? It’s even tea? Tannic, “tea”, dirty.

“Black Tea with 5% pressed leaves to release their essence” – that’s something I really dislike. I think it is that tannic + dirty taste.
I have one more bag from postcrossing (this one is from as well). I know why I don’t enjoy this one / with lemon it is bit better one.

Flavors: Dirt, Tannic, Tea

Definitely not top shelf stuff, but I do like their loose leaf black tea better than the bagged stuff.

Bluegreen

It takes tea and sugar reasonably well. I think it was created for that.

Gmathis:Some blends even in tea bags from Lipton are good; but this is just that bad as I described. I think that essence is what I dislike that much. And I understand that some loose-leaf can be quite good.

Bluegreen:Haven’t tried it with sugar. But I understand it could be more drinkable :D

drank Orange by Lipton

Tried this tea at a motel. It was really tasty! The flavor is a light, deliciously spiced orange. A bit of sweetener really made it taste nice. No sourness, just sweet orange. A totally satisfying bagged choice.

Lipton gets a lot of bad press around here, but not everything they produce is awful :)

AJRimmer

I agree completely – there are a lot of good bagged teas out there!

Balanced aroma with base malty black tea, raspberry and passionfruit.
Very watery, bland taste, barely giving the impression of drinking black tea and with only slight traces of fruit.
Well, it’s Lipton, I didn’t expect much, but certainly more than this.

Flavors: Malt, Passion Fruits, Raspberry

Boiling 4 min, 0 sec 2 g 8 OZ / 250 ML

I got hit with such a bad vestibular migraine at work today I had to call it at my lunch break and take the rest of the day off (waiting an extra 30 minutes in the break room until the dizziness even calmed down enough that I felt I could safely get my car home, it was so strong). I rarely get that type of migraine, my M.O. is classic migraine, but not fun nonetheless. I zonked hard with my companion animal and when I felt her licking my face I decided to finally surface from bed and drink something for the nausea. I think I heard of this tea once from a tasting note of derk’s and found it just recently in my local grocery, so I grabbed it. It has both peppermint and ginger in it, the two things I like when my stomach is crap, so I made a mental note that if it ever showed up in a local store I’d grab it… and then it did. So today is the day to christen that box.

The cup actually smells quite nice… it smells of mint and ginger and also licorice root, though that is probably mostly the fennel that is advertised in large letters on the front of the package. It also has a quite citrusy aroma. Flavor is minty and a little spicy, I can feel some warmth on the back of my throat but it isn’t lingering or unpleasant. The clove also leaves a bit of an aftertaste as well. It is subtly earthy, has a bit of a citrus touch, and a strong licorice flavor and sweetness. It is a nice tea, I wish the menthol notes were coming out just a touch stronger but otherwise this is a pretty solid sick blend.

Flavors: Citrus, Clove, Earth, Ginger, Licorice, Mint, Spicy, Sweet

Preparation
205 °F / 96 °C 5 min, 0 sec 1 tsp 12 OZ / 350 ML

Wow, strong licorice? Mine was definitely ginger forward. May what ails ye pass quickly <3

drank Lemon Herbal Tea by Lipton
555 tasting notes

This tastes kind of like a tart lemon candy. It needs sugar to bring the flavor out, but it’s decently tasty. It gets really bad reviews, which is too bad. It’s nothing special, but I don’t mind its fakeness since it’s more like lemon candy to me than actual lemons.

drank Chamomile by Lipton
555 tasting notes

This was a nice chamomile that I had hot at breakfast while I was staying at a motel over the weekend. It’s about what you’d expect. No complaints! It’s difficult to rate a tea like this that’s almost by definition not exciting, but also perfectly pleasant.

Martin Bednář

It wasn’t cardboard like?

gmathis

Chamomile is pretty much the same, no matter what brand you’re drinking. (I guess that’s a plus.)

Martin Bednář

Not always gmathis – I notice great one (Dammnan Freres, which was even fruity) and some tea from Lipton (not chamomile) which was like cardboard.

gmathis

Ah…let revise my statement to “chamomile in the cheap grocery store brands I always buy” is pretty much the same :) Damman Freres, that’s a whole different quality category!

Martin Bednář

Yeah it is different, but I do not understand it. The flowers are same, even when two teas with whole buds and it was still different.
But yeah, grocery store brands will be same :D

LuckyMe

i think a lot of the negative impressions people have about chamomile comes from the crappy bagged tea. The high quality stuff though is completely different. I’ve had some whole chamomile flowers from Rishi and others that are incredibly good. Honeyed and citrusy, not at all cardboard like

AJRimmer

Yeah I feel like I’ve had one or two that were disagreeable, but for the most part, they’re all basically the same. I never buy chamomile, but I always end up having some on my shelf somehow!

Balanced taste of grapefruit and pear, with only traces of weak, poor quality green tea in the background. Not bad, but not especially good either.

drank Bombay Bazaar by Lipton
233 tasting notes

Slightly spicy and earthy aroma.
A mixture of spices in the taste. Largely unrecognisable, but cardamom definitely comes to the front. And there is a solid earthy background from the base black tea.
Not bad as an everyday tea, specially from Lipton, but there’s nothing fancy about it.

Flavors: Cardamon, Earth, Spicy
