Black Tea from Lipton Tea

Style: Black Tea – Region: ?????

45 / 100 Aroma: 5/10 Flavor: 2/5 Value: 5/5
Apr. 7th, 2020

Lipton gets a bad rap. I get it too. It’s light, bland, and shallow.

I over-steeped my tea because I start with water that is less than a rolling boil, but really it was because I needed all that time to bring out any semblance of taste.

Lipton is a tea, but that’s about it.

You don’t even need two sente...

Lemon Ginger from Yogi Tea

Style: Wellness Tea / Medicinal Tea – Region: Blend

65 / 100 Aroma: 6/10 Flavor: 2/5 Value: 4/5

Steeped with just boiling water for 5 minutes. Served in enamel tin mug.

Notes of ginger and lemongrass on the nose. I'm not getting much lemon to be honest, perhaps this is just my palate. In retrospect with this comment, it may be better off with a squeeze of fresh lemon juice as one might add to a good black tea....
