Lipton - Peach
This tea came to me somewhat by accident. I was browsing the tea
aisle, looking for a box of Country Peach Passion (Celestial
Seasonings). But they were out. Normally, I'd just let it go
and look another day, but I was really craving some peach tea, so I
bought this instead. It was a gamble, and it paid off poorly.
I didn't like this, at
all. The color was good, but that's about the only positive thing
I can say about it. It smelled bad; like something burnt, almost.
(Yeah, I don't know either. But that's what it smelled like.)
That didn't bode well, but hey, I've had teas that smelled wonderful end
up tasting bad, so why not the reverse?
But, no. The taste
was bad, too. It's not that the peach flavor was too weak (my
usual complaint about bad herbals); it just wasn't a good peach
flavor. It was sort of...bitter, and not very pleasant. The
more sugar I added, it got a little better, but that's only because by
then I was tasting sugar rather than the tea.
I will say that I did
something different than usual when I brewed this one. (And that
could be why it didn't turn out well.) I somewhat expected it
would be too weak, so I started off with three teabags, when I normally
would only have used two. I may try it again,
with my usual two bags. If and
when I do, I'll update this review with my findings.
Unpleasant aroma, poor taste. Stay away from this one.
