Lipton Lemon Ginseng Green Tea Review

An OK Lemon Green Tea

Summary : This tea, while not in the same league as Celestial Seasonings Honey Lemon Ginseng Green Tea, isn't too bad. But for a lemon green tea, this one isn't too shabby.

Review : Let me be straightforward here. I was FULLY expecting to despise this tea. After my unfortunate tasting experience with Liptons Honey Green Tea, I was under no illusions that I might like this tea. I was fully expecting this tea to find my drain after a few sips.

So, with an evil attitude, I opened up the tea foil and wasn't exactly impressed, making my attitude all that more evil. Out of the bag the tea basically smelled like a very weak lemon flavored green tea, which is ultimately what this tea is.

Liptons Lemon Ginseng Green Tea contains the following ingredeints : Green tea, natural lemon flavor with other natural flavors (contains soy lecithin), panax ginseng, and lemon grass.

This is how Liption describes this tea on their website : "LIPTON has combined the tangy taste of lemon and the benefits of ginseng with our pure green tea to create a drink full of clean, all natural taste and vitality. It’s a tea for the exotic seeking tea drinker. And it’s a great way to get a healthy dose of protective flavonoid antioxidants."

In addition to the unpleasant experience of tasting a previous Lipton Flavored Green Tea, I was also expecting the worse from this tea due to the "odd" way it is brewed. Lipton plainly states to use boiling water and to let the tea brew for 1 to 1.5 minutes. Definitely different. And, I expect, one of the reasons I hated their Honey Green Tea so much.

Still, I'm a survivor, so I pressed on. The tea, during the short brewing period, did faintly raise my hopes a bit. The fragrance was a bit like a weak lemon tea. I like lemon teas, so my emotional defenses collapsed a bit, perhaps on the hope that I could possibly like this tea to some degree.

And you know what, I did like this tea. OK. Let's not go overboard here. This tea isn't the best invention since white bread, but it's not too shabby either. The tea, to sum it up, is basically a weak lemon flavored tea. You can taste a hint of green tea, but by and large this is simply a weak lemon tea with a "hint of green" thrown in for good measure.

Recommendation : Yes, if you like a lemon tea, you'll likely enjoy this tea to some degree. Not for "pure green tea" drinkers, since the taste of the green tea here is weak and not especially great. But the lemon in the tea covers up the relatively so-so green tea taste and provides a pleasant taste overall.
