1156 tasting notes

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

Preparation
205 °F / 96 °C 2 min, 0 sec 10 OZ / 300 ML

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

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.

I am drinking almost everything. Tea bag collector who moved to wonderful world of loose leaf.

Trying to rate differently tea bags and loose leaf as tea bags have usually worse quality.

Buried in tea right now. Is in my cupboard (trying to be updated) which sparkled your interest? Write me, I would gladly share with you. But I don’t want anything in return now :)
