15 Tasting Notes
The first jasmine tea I’ve tried. It is also the last.
The one good thing about getting this tea was discovering I really, really, really don’t like Jasmine.
At least I know to avoid it in the future.
Not rating it since my dislike of jasmine is hardly a factor in whether or not this is a good jasmine tea.
This won’t discourage me from blindly buying teas online though.
I’m rating this as the soft-drink that it is. As a soft-drink, this is great. Very refreshing.
I wouldn’t consider this a soft drink at all. It’s simply bottled presweetened tea. Now their sparkling tea is more soft drinkish, but I’d still qualify that as tea as well.
I have tried sparkling tea before but never from Lipton. It was a Darjeeling tea with lemon sold in Japan. I wouldn’t recommend it.
I know from experience that the tea Lipton sell here in the UK differs greatly from the ice tea they sell in Japan (the British variety being more fruit with hints of tea and the Japanese tea with hints of fruit). I can’t speak of the American variety having never tried it.
The main reason I consider this (or at least, the British version of this) a soft-drink is because it is incredibly sweet and fruity and the only tea it contains is “tea extract” at a fraction of one percent.
