Lipton Mint Green Tea Review
A Rather Enjoyable Mint Green Tea
Summary : A surprisingly tasty and pleasant mint flavored green tea. If you like mint, you'll likely enjoy this tea.
Review : After my nasty experience with Lipton's Honey Green Tea, I'll admit, I was NOT looking forward to tasting some of the other flavored green teas that Lipton has. Yet, truth be told, I love mint. So...despite everything, I just couldn't pass up the chance to give their Mint Green Tea a try.
I think mint and green tea go hand in hand. For whatever reason, I have yet to stumble across a green tea flavored with mint that I didn't to some degree like. And fortunately, I can say this trend continues with Liptons Mint Green Tea.
Unlike some of the other teas from Lipton, this particular tea doesn't have a massive list of ingredients. his tea contains the following ingredients : Green tea, spearmint leaves, peppermint leaves, lemon grass.
This is how Liption describes this tea on their website : "Our specialty blend combines all natural green tea with the kick of spearmint and peppermint leaves for a truly delicious drink."
And you know what? That description of their tea is quite accurate. You taste the green tea. You taste the peppermint leaves. And you taste the spearmint leaves.
The flavor of the tea is hardly overpowering. OK. I'll be blunt. The flavor is rather weak. Yet...despite that relatively weak flavor, the tea still tastes good. There is no bitterness in the tea, despite the rather unorthodox way Lipton says to brew this tea.
In many ways, this tea reminded me of a green tea version of Tazo's Calm Chamomile Tea. While the taste is a bit different, the mixture of spearmint and peppermint have a similar taste to Tazo's tea. And since this tea is a green tea, you get the health benefits of antioxidants too.
Overall, I was pleasantly surprised with the flavor of the tea. This tea more than met my admittedly low expectations, making me a happy camper this Saturday morning in November.
Recommendation : Yes. While the taste is rather weak, it is still pleasant. This tea provides a nice mix of green tea, spearmint and peppermint flavors - all of which somehow come together to make for an enjoyable tea. At least if you like mint. That said, if you want a REALLY GOOD mint green tea, try Culinary Teas Mint Green Tea, which has a taste that makes Liptons tea seem pretty darn boring by comparison.
