I had this tea bag from their “A moment to…” series. I asusme it is still same.

Oh well, where to start? Let’s start with a note that two minutes steeping was more than enough. Although their teas are Rainforest Aliance Certified, it doesn’t mean it’s a good cuppa.

It’s indeed quite strong and bitter, but as well somehow plain in tates. I couldn’t notice anything but bitterness. Two minutes steep caused it wasn’t ovewhelming though. There was some other note, which I could call malty, but not really sure about that. And that typical Lipton’s cardboard…

Flavors: Bitter, Cardboard, Malt

Poor Lipton. Nobody loves them here :)

I don’t look at brand, sometimes their teas are decent. But not this one.

‘Typical Liptons’ cardborad’ haha!

Mastress Alita

I actually know exactly what “typical Lipton’s cardboard” tastes like. I always assumed it was me having a reaction to the type of paper they use for their teabags… and they aren’t the only tea company where I’ve tasted “paper” or “cardboard” notes from the bags.

Persian Earl Grey. 3 words chosen randomly from a dictionary, strung together in seemingly no rhythm nor reason. When I think of Persian I think of a cat roaming around in the sand. When I think of Earl I think of the man who moved into my neighborhood last year, knocking on my door informing me that he is in fact a sexual predator. Grey, an indecisive color. You’re either black or white. Choose one. However, when blended together a sort of harmony arises. Gone with the indecision. Gone with the fear of being sexually assaulted. Gone with the smell of a sweaty cat. Instead, a nice consensual rainbow of sweet aroma arises in an otherwise normal tea mug. When you drink this tea you feel like Cyrpus the Great ruling the once great empire of Persia. you feel like a lion, king of the jungle, shaking the ground with its mighty roar. You feel as though all color has become brighter, clearer, and more aesthetically pleasing to the eye. Just kidding. This tea is just ok. 5/10

Whoops, I made myself this tea and then left it behind all day to work on a jigsaw puzzle. The flavor is honestly perfectly good. Nothing special about it, but it’s decently robust, and I’m enjoying my cup of it with some milk. The reviews are way too hard on this one.

That’s true: Lipton doesn’t get a lot of love around here. I have had fair-to-decent experiences with their plain looseleaf teas and some of their pyramid bag varieties, but our local stores don’t stock anything but their standard unflavored black varieties.

Martin Bednář

Lipton is hit or miss. I actually don’t mind the flavoured stuff, I never had thier loose leaf. But the Yellow Label; and few other bagged I had were cardboard-y to me somehow.

Lipton is my go-to for sweet iced tea. I’ve never tried any of their loose leaf or flavored blends though.

I just flipped through the current product listing — I think the pyramid bags I thought were OK are all long gone.

AJRimmer

Aw, that’s unfortunate that they discontinued them! I’ve never actually bought Lipton before, but I think I’ve generally enjoyed the teas of theirs I’ve come across.

drank Matcha Green Tea and Mint by Lipton

It’s very unlike me to actually turn to a green tea as my first choice, especially my first choice of the morning. Maybe it’s the mint that’s calling to me or maybe it’s the matcha. Or both perhaps.

The flavor isn’t anything too special, not even really very minty. I have another bag of this but I’m not really in a hurry to have it again soon.

Cold Brew sip down.

This is a delicious tea cold brewed. It is slightly bitter but leaves a peachy aftertaste like those peachy rings from the old days.

I have mixed feelings about this tea. I just finished putting in my last few bags into jars to cold brew overnight. I got this box of these 18 pyramids my freshman year of college in 2013!! I was just getting started with drinking tea as it seemed like the easier option to pop into mug to take to class. This was one of two boxes of tea I first bought. I remember thinking that it was fancy and luxurious because of the satiny pyramid sachets. I knew nothing about tea at this point at least compared to what I now know. I would wake in the mornings and make boiling hot water in either my microwave or more often in my coffee maker. I would remove the tags and chuck in one of the two flavors (the other being blueberry flavored tea) into my magenta mug along with the boiling water and carry it around steeping for 6+ hours. Knowing what I know, it seems sacrilegious to add boiling water to white tea. Although I did not know at that time, I was burning the tea leaves and drinking bitter tea which is why I probably only used about 3 of the white tea bags that year. I ended up using all the blueberry tea which either masked the burned tea flavor or it was an herbal tea. I carried this box with me for the next couple of year through 3 moves and used maybe 3 more bags in that time. I ended up exploring tea and fell into the rabbit hole of tea.

This box of tea was forgotten for almost 5 years until the day I discovered it hiding at the back of the cupboard and decided to try it again. It was still bitter even though I made it with the correct temperature and steep time. I ended up playing a little with steep time to no avail. I gave up for a few months but once again it found its way out while I was searching for something else. This time, I decided to cold steep it and it still came out better yet still bitter. It turns out that it is just mediocre tea. I could not bring myself to get rid of it after I decided to lug it around on all my moves, so I decided to embrace the bitterness and finish off the 18 sachet box 7 years later. Although its bitter, it is very flavorful.

It brought back so many memories :)

It’s rare we get to see the history of an entire box of tea. :D

This review is going to be right on suit with my Lipton black tea review; while that one goes more into semantics of Lipton as a staple I will keep this more brief.

This is a one-dimensional green tea, it gets a little bitter as some reviewers point out, but really there’s only one thing that brings it down.
A tangy aftertaste that has a sense of tannin coating the tongue which is tough to shake. Ironically I still feel as if they would equate this to all the supposed health benefits of drinking Lipton Green Tea, but more likely it’s just the product of a mass-produced offering that does not have the same penchant for small-batch perfection that many others do.

You know that mystery tea that the Japanese or Chinese restaurants somewhere in town serve? It’s probably better, or at least putting up a fight when it comes to flavor.

It’s a plain green tea, and there are many other options that would be superior in flavor and experience.

I would not buy it personally, but I got a box for free and I’ll likely still drink it.
If this was the only option on a tea cart on a train, I would still sip, enjoy, and stare out the window at anything to add to the experience of this tea.

Flavors: Bitter, Dry Grass, Tangy
