Recently, the SororiTea Sisters received an incredibly generous box with quite a variety of different Tipson teas. Tipson is not a tea brand I’m familiar with but was intrigued by the different varieties they offered- all in tea bag form.
The first one that caught my eye was their Matcha Honey & Lemon variety. I’ve had matcha before in a tea bag form and was not crazy about how the flavors came around so I was intrigued if this take on a bagged matcha would be different. This particular variety not only had organic matcha, but also had organic green tea and lemongrass with natural lemon and honey flavors listed. Again, interesting combo but wasn’t 100% sure those flavors would mingle well.
So this morning I prepped my tea up with freshly boiled water and allowed the tea to steep for the recommended 3 minutes. First sip in- I was surprised. The flavors weren’t what I was expecting. The first flavor that comes across is the green tea and lemon notes and I have to say, the flavor was pleasant. The honey flavor comes in towards the middle of the sip and it isn’t my favorite take on honey. The flavor reminded me more of a cough drop than actual honey flavors but I know that honey flavors are sometimes hard to pin point. At the end of the sip you get the slightest hint of matcha.
To try to pull out the matcha flavors, I tried making this tea as a cold brew tea and the flavors were about the same as hot brewing. Overall, this tea exceeded my previous experiences with bagged matcha and I can see having this tea on hand for those days where brewing loose leaf may just not be in the cards. Not an everyday drinker but one that I could easily sip on during the day and for sure has me intrigued to check out other teas from Tipson.
