I was out of town for a few days. I was at a restaurant for breakfast and the menu stated hot tea – a variety of Harney and Sons tea bags. I thought why not. I have been away from tea for a few days and Harney’s is good, even in the bag. So I ordered tea expecting to get a little teapot of hot water and a container that contains a variety of tea bags. Instead I got a cup of hot water and two of these lipton tea bags. It was the only tea they had. I was quite disappointed but I still wanted tea so I stuck with it.
The tea was quite astringent. I could taste orange pekoe but it also seemed like it was mixed with something else, I couldn’t quite put my finger on it. There was a sweetness but it was also bitter at the same time. It didn’t really hit the spot but it was better than nothing I guess.
