What a name! Detox Herbal Supplement with Green Tea from Lipton. Goodness. What this tea really should be called is amazing tasting Detox tea that you’ll want to drink that isn’t overwhelmingly spiced with ginger and is one of the best grapefruit teas around! Yes, that’s right. . . Grapefruit Detox tea. . .
I am one of those that is constantly on the look out for great tasting detox teas. Not because of the whole losing weight detox plan but because I have found that detox teas with spices like nettle and yes ginger, can actually help me feel better. But so many of those teas make you want to just gulp the tea to get it over with instead of experiencing and really enjoying the tea.
Recently, we were asked to review a new Wellness line of teas from Lipton. I will be 100% honest here. Lipton is the tea I grew up on and still drink it from time to time at my parents house. But beyond that, I don’t drink a whole ton of Lipton products. So when these teas showed up at my door, I wasn’t sure what to expect. What ended up happening, is that I fell in love with a Lipton tea!
Brewed up with water prepped right under boiling, I steeped this tea sachet for about 4 minutes. While the tea was steeping, I kept sticking my nose in the steam to get the wonderful aromas that were omitting from my cuppa. Right away, you can pick up the grapefruit essential oil. Such a lovely fresh and clean smell. I couldn’t wait for the tea to cool so I could take a sip.
First sip in and my search for a grapefruit has been satisfied. This tea is delicious. Grapefruit and green tea are the major flavors you pick up and towards the end of each sip is this really lovely herbal finish. There is a sweet, tart, vegetal, and herbal contrasting play each and every time you take a sip of this tea.
Super happy with this tea and especially with how this tea is in a easy tea bag form. I was even happier when I was in my local grocery store the other day and this tea was sitting on the shelf.
Now I have a great detox tea with nettle and dandelion root along with a grapefruit tea that makes me smile. I’m a happy tea loving gal!

Don’t see this one listed on the website anymore but I did find a Steepster review page. This looks to be an older tea or one that is available only overseas.

Still on my journey to drink down some of my tea cupboard when I came across this delight. Yes. Another tea bag. And to my surprise, I’m drinking Lipton. I can’t remember the last time I drank Lipton so I’m curious to see what I think.
Lipton seems to be one of the tea companies a lot of newbie tea drinkers tend to stray towards. I think its more of a convenience factor. You can find Lipton teas pretty much at every grocery store around. This particular tea is a mint and eucalyptus herbal tea. I couldn’t find it on their website but I did find a Steepster entry for this blend.
Brewed this like I would any herbal- 5 min with 212F for the water temperature. I took a sip and felt that the flavor wasn’t as strong as it should be so I let the tea bag stay in the water for a few more minutes.
Took another sip and I can’t say that I don’t like this but I can’t say that I like it either. This is one of those teas that you like just about everything in the flavor profile except for one ingredient. In this one, I think it might be the eucalyptus. I’ve had eucalyptus in tea before and liked it but maybe mixed with mint, this one has a weird one off flavor. Or maybe this is just an older tea.
I have a few more tea bags of this one so I’m going to try a cold brew to see if the weird flavor mellows out a bit. Regardless, it was still a fun tea to try!
