Recently I came across a new-to-me blend from Lipton, their Lady Lipton Tea flavored with "bergamot and citrus." I'm a bit puzzled by that description since my understanding is that bergamot IS a citrus.
Quite a few tea companies seem to be changing their packaging these days, and I think this one looks like a throwback to the 1970s. I can just see this woman in a Virginia Slims ad, and I'm curious who this is supposed to appeal to. (I bought Lady Lipton because I liked the name of the tea and wanted to give it a try, not because I particularly liked the look of the package.)
And am I detecting a pattern with the message here? Irresistible Lady Lipton … affair … and then…
Flirt with more flavor? I don't want to have an affair with my tea, I just want to drink it, thank you very much! But enough of all that. So how does it taste, you ask? I tried this tea at several different steeping times, trying to find one that worked for me, but each time I found this tea a bit weak, and I much prefer Lady Grey from Twinings. Have any of you tried this tea yet? If so, what did you think? (And even if you haven't, I'm curious: do you like the package design?)
