drank Forest Fruits by Lipton
2 tasting notes

I encountered this tea by pilfering it from a friends tea stash at work … and I believe this is how many people will come across this tea. It’s not aspirational, and I would not search high and low to find a tea bag.

On first examination of the tea bag the string was glued to the bag meaning I was not able to fully exploit the dipping capabilities boasted by the string and tab. Nonetheless, I plowed on with my expectations low.

The first sniff of the bag yields a pleasant fruity hit but this is not realised on completion of the brew. The tea is soft and round and very inoffensive but I wasn’t transported to a fruity English forest resplendent with a smorgasbord of summer fruits as I had hoped I might be by the packaging.

Despite this it was an agreeable drink and I would go back for another if I had run out of change for a coffee and had already reached my allotted caffeine allowance for the day and other options were slim.

Now I have finished the drink I am getting a slightly dry and astringent aftertaste in my mouth, but not enough to put me off this stalwart of roadside hotels across the land.
