As a lady who enjoys her cups of tea on a daily basis I am always on the lookout for new teas to try. Yet for some unknown reason I tend to drink very little green tea. This is strange as it is a great tea to be enjoyed milk free so it is therefore perfect for dairy free me. I have tried a couple of brands of green tea of varying qualities. So when I was lucky enough to get the opportunity to review a selection of Clipper organic green teas I couldn’t wait for the parcel to arrive. On opening my parcel I was greeted by three packets of tea each of which contained 20 teabags. The first tea I choose to review was their organic green tea.

Organic Green Tea

Review of Clipper Green Teas

I liked the simple design of the packaging with this tea. The dark green background with a white teacup with green tea inside and a green tea leave placed inside. Onto the ingredients organically grown green tea is listed. There are there no allergens highlighted or any may contain warnings listed.

Review of Clipper Green Teas

On opening the foil packet within the boxI was greeted by a fairly strong aroma a grassy meadow with subtle undertones of smokiness that I associate with green tea. This intensified slightly on my famous close up sniff test. It weakened slightly on smelling an individual teabag.
Review of Clipper Green Teas
I placed the teabag in my teacup and added my slightly cooled freshly boiled hot water. I left the tea to infuse with the hot water as instructed. The hot water soon changed to a light brown/green colour. The aroma from the tea did not intensify and remained the same, even on my close up sniff test. On sipping the tea I could really taste the grassy element with the smokiness element intermingled with this. This resulted in a nice light and refreshing tea.

So would I recommend this green tea, yes definitely. I liked the stronger yet subtle grassy aroma and flavour of this tea. It was a nice refreshing tea. So if you fancy a milk free tea, why not give this green tea a try.

Clipper Organic Green Tea & Mango

Review of Clipper Green Teas

I liked the simple design of the packaging with this tea. The dark green background with a white teacup with orange tea inside with a mango being dipped inside. Onto the ingredients organically grown green tea, natural mango flavouring with other natural flavourings (5%) are listed. On personal note I wish that more information was provided about what the natural flavourings are. There are there no allergens highlighted or any may contain warnings listed.

On opening the foil packet within the box I was immediately hit with a subtle aroma of mango with faint undertones of grassiness noted. On my close up sniff test this aroma didn’t intensify and remained the same. It weakened slightly on smelling an individual teabag.

Onto the aroma I could predominantly smell the mango which reminded me slightly of a tropical fruit squash with subtle grassy undertones noted. On sipping the tea its flavour matched its aroma. My taste buds initially seemed to get hit by mango followed an even balance of the grassiness from the green tea. The strength of the mango complimented the green tea perfectly and resulted in a nice refreshing green tea. I think that this tea would work well as an iced tea over the warmer summer months.

Clipper Green Mint Tea

Review of Clipper Green Teas

I liked the simple design of the packaging with this tea. The dark green background with a white teacup with green tea inside with a mint leave being dipped into this. Onto the ingredients organically grown green tea, organic peppermint leaves (10%), and natural peppermint flavouring (4%) are listed. On personal note I wish that more information was provided about what the natural flavourings are. There are there no allergens highlighted or any may contain warnings listed.

I left the tea to infuse with the hot water as instructed. The hot water soon changed to a light green colour. The aroma of the tea intensified as the tea infused with the hot water. There was a strong aroma of peppermint with subtle faint grassy aroma noted. On sipping the tea I could taste both the delicate grassy and mint elements to this tea. It was nice to experience a green tea where the mint flavour took centre stage. It was a nice refreshing tea that somehow had a nice soothing and comforting effect as I drank it.

So would I recommend giving this tea a try? Yes definitely. It is one of the strongest mint green teas that I have tried.
