Lipton Orange Passionfruit & Jasmine
A Surprisingly Good Orange Flavored
Summary : Not a bad tea at all. Basically a orange
flavored green tea that isn't bitter.
Review : It's pretty cool to go from expecting "the worse"
to actually getting a happy surprise. And so that is where I found
myself one lonely Saturday evening, experimenting with new teas while
instant messaging with a friend in the frozen tundra of Montana".
To be blunt, I've never really cared for many of Lipton's teas. I find
them rather weak, unflavorful and occasionally
awful. There are some exceptions
to this, of course, but by and large that trend stands. Because of this,
I had no real hopes that I would like this one.
Happily, I was wrong. Liptons Orange, Passionfruit & Jasmine Green
Tea is a surprisngly pleasant green tea to drink. This tea contains the
ingredients : Green tea, orange peel, jasmine, natural orange and passion
fruit flavors with other natural flavors (contains soy lecithin).
This is how Liption describes this tea on their website : "Experience
the sweetness of orange, tangy passionfruit and fragrant jasmine for a
unique, all natural, green tea beverage that makes any occasion special.
To entice you even more, green tea contains a healthy dose of protective
Admittedly, this tea will inspire no great praises when pulled out
of the foil wrapper. The tea, upon close inspection, does have a rather
pleasant fragrance of green tea and orange. However, the aroma is far
from strong or overpowering.
Yet, the taste was surprising. I really wasn't expecting much. And
instead...I actually found a Lipton Tea I could drink more than once.
This tea has a nice, rather light and pleasant taste about it. The
orange flavor in this tea seems to mix perfectly with the green tea.
The orange flavor is by no means strong - but just seems "right" for
this particular blend that Lipton put together. I also have a strong
suspicion that this tea would be really good in "iced form." It just
seems to have the "right taste" to be successfully made into a nice
and tasty iced tea. But I haven't tried it iced yet so I'll withold
my verdict on that one.
Overall, I was surprised with this tea, and if you like flavored green
teas - particularly with orange in it - you'll likely be surprised
by this tea too.
Recommendation : Surprisingly yes. I was expecting
the worse and what I got was a rather tasty, albeit somewhat weak,
tasting orange flavored green tea. If you like orange tastes in teas,
you'll probably like this one. It's not one of my favorite teas, but
it is certainly worth trying.
