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
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
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
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.
