The Tea Experiment / #2

For the second installment of The Tea Experiment, I will be reviewing Lipton's blueberry pomegranate white tea. I've had mixed feelings about purchasing this, because their iced teas tend to be full of fake flavoring and barely any tea. The ingredients of this specific tea is listed here: White tea, rosehips, green tea, hibiscus flowers, natural flavor, sweet blackberry leaves, dried black currant fruit pieces, dried blueberry fruit pieces, dried raspberry fruit pieces, modified corn starch, sunflower lecithin. 

Not too bad, right? I mean, maybe there's people saying "OMG natural flavor? What could that ever be?" or "Is that organic? Please tell me it's organic." I can't really tell you that, but this tea is tolerable for me to consume. It has REAL ingredients in it. After being brewed, the tea leaves a lovely aroma throughout the room that is perfect for any morning. However, don't let the scent full you! I would recommend brewing as long as possible because I wouldn't consider this tea strong. The taste at first is hard to convey into words. It's like a mix between a strawberry banana smoothie and pink starbursts. Yet at the same time, it's not really that sweet. Keep in mind, it's tea. What really attracted me about the tea was the teabag. They come in these pyramid tea bags made of a strong material. They're fun to use.

I would definitely recommend having this tea iced rather than hot. The taste goes down better when iced, in my opinion. Now. Would I recommend this tea to others? I think it's worth a try to see if you like it, but I'm more of a green tea person. I could see making iced tea with this as the base and infusing it with fruit. That would be delicious! Fruity teas always seem risky to get for me because you never know what you're gonna get!
