I love my coffee. I am a caffeine whore and not ashamed to admit it. Yet, I am not one of those coffee snobs that refuse to enjoy a spot of tea now and then. I am an equal opportunity caffeine jolt addict. I do like many types of teas, and there is nothing better than experiencing a high tea with your choice of scones, sandwiches, desserts, and assorted tea flavors. Mmmm……stick a pot of tea in front of me with some biscuits and clotted cream. Orgasmic bliss. A caffeinated food coma bliss, but happy nonetheless. That is why I wear sweatpants when hitting up a tea house. Don’t judge! Guys like me need room to breathe.
Also, at my office where I work we have a K-Cup machine with all kinds of coffees and teas to choose from. It’s so easy to use and offers no messy cleanup. I always wondered what it would be like to have one at home. Well, my thoughts and prayers did not go unanswered. The angel of caffeination sprinkled some tea leaves on me as I was recently asked to try out a new line of K-Cups by Lipton. Heck, we all know Lipton as they have been around forever, and I am sure we have had a cup of their tea at one time in our lives. On a cold winter day I like a hot cup of tea, or when sick it seems to help better than coffee. Lipton has been used in my family since I can remember, and I still use their products today.
I jumped at the chance to check out their new tea line that is meant for Keurig K-Cup machines. As the cold weather season is upon us the timing was perfect! I was sent three varieties of teas to taste and reflect upon.
Lipton INDULGE – I am a big fan of Earl Grey style tea and I very much enjoyed indulging in this one. If you are a black tea fan it a solid deal. Simple and delish. A touch of vanilla tops it off. My fav out of the three.
Lipton REFRESH – I don’t drink a lot of sweet tea but gave this one a fair shot. I thought it was pretty good. If you are one into a sweeter tasting tea then you will enjoy this.
Lipton SOOTHE – It’s one of those green teas that is best when trying to relax after a long day at work, or while watching tv at night and unwinding. I drink a bit of green tea now and then and this was really good. It helps soothe the throat too and I can see even drinking this over ice as an option.
Overall, I think Lipton has done a great job here and it will be interesting to see what other flavors they come up with. I’m always up to trying out new things. Especially when it comes to teas and coffees.
Now, when I was contacted to review these three teas I was not expecting to receive what came my way. A huge box arrived at my office and I did not know what to think. As I opened it up I was amazed to see a brand new Keurig K75 Platinum brewing machine! Holy K-Cup Batman! Along with three boxes of the teas I mentioned above there was also another box of mixed coffees that was included. This had to be at least a $200 retail value. A few blogger friends of mine who also were contacted for this promotion were just as impressed as I was. I brought it home, set it up, and started making tea within minutes. It was so easy to use and the selection of K-Cups that came with it were terrific.
So, you are probably wondering why I am gibber jabbering along about this. Well, that’s because I wanted to get you all hyped up for the Giveaway included in this post! Oh, hellz yeah buddy!
