Lipton Natural Energy Premium Black Tea

Purchased Price: FREE*
Size: 40 tea bags
Purchased at: Given to us by Lipton
Rating: 6 out of 10
Pros: 75 milligrams of sweet, sweet caffeine per cup, which is 20 milligrams more than regular Lipton black tea and the ONLY thing that gets me excited about this tea. When it cools down a little, it makes a wonderful hand warmer while in a mug. Rainforest Alliance Certified. Drinking tea with your pinky sticking out.
Cons: Tastes like any ol’ black tea. There are tastier ways to get caffeine. Not sure if has flavonoids (if it did, wouldn’t Lipton want to let everyone know?). Not as aromatic as regular Lipton black tea. Microwaving Red Bull to have a warm pick-me-up.

    I got a free sample of this for review as well and found exactly the same thing as you – it lacks the floral notes of regular Lipton tea and tastes somehow “flatter”. It will give you just a bit less caffeine than coffee, but I’m not sure that it’s worth it. I’d rather make one enormous cup of regular tea using two teabags than one cup of this. Sure, I’ll have to pee every two minutes, but I’ll enjoy the tea more. ;-)

    All tea has flavonoids so yes, this has them.

    Speaking as a Brit though, Lipton is RANK.

    This tea tastes kind of like coffee to me.
