Lipton Lemon Herbal Tea Review
A rather odd tasting lemon tea
Summary : Not the best of lemon teas on the market,
that is for sure. While the tea tastes of lemon, it is an odd taste.
Review : I'll be truthful. Lemon isn't my worlds favorite
fruit. Nor is lemon my favorite additive to water, whether it be in tea
or plain old water. Yet, I DO like lemon water and other lemon teas.
As such, figuring that a lemon tea should more or less taste the same
across various product lines of tea, I had rather high hopes for Lipton's
Lemon Herbal Tea.
And sadly, my hopes were dashed on the rocky shoals of reality. Even
right out of the foil package that the tea came wrapped in (as part of
a sampler collection), I knew that there was going to be something different about
this particular lemon tea. Exactly what I didn't know, nor did I know
if that something different would be good or bad. But I knew it would
be different - because the aroma of the tea most definitely didn't smell
like a typical lemon tea should.
The Lemon Herbal Tea from Lipton contains the following ingredients
: Hibiscus flowers, rosehips, roasted chicory root, orange peel, lemon
grass, lemon peel, citric acid, natural lemon flavor (contains soy lecithin).
Like other herbal teas, this one is also caffeine free.
Now, there is a taste of lemon in this tea. However, the taste of it
is like a lemon I've never had before - and don't really want to again,
Additionally, this odd lemon taste is also rather weak. This is in stark
contrast to Bigelow's Lemon Herbal
Tea, another bagged supermarket brand, which has a strikingly strong
- and rather pleasant - flavor about it.
Recommendation : No. The tea has a weak lemon taste,
and the taste of lemon itself is just different - and not necessarily
in a good way either.
