Must admit, I am using teabags more and more lately due to convenience in the morning; I am handicap and use teabags in the morning before getting into my wheelchair in the afternoon when I am able to prepare matcha.
With that said, I am surprised at all the negative reviews here regarding Lipton’s Black Pearl Tea! I quite enjoy this tea [have many boxes.] It has a clear crisp taste, not brisk and it has a nice mouth feel, not malty but a little more noticeable than a Darjeeling the longer it steeps. I keep teabags in the whole time I am drinking to reap all the health benefits and yet it never gets bitter! I tend to find there is no aftertaste either; it is just nice and clean.
I do like the pyramid/sachet teabags better because they contain whole leaf teas and the desired room to unfurl. Lipton’s “regular” teabags aren’t so desirable because they contain “tea dust” and the Brisk tea has a murkier taste and characteristic profile.
I would highly recommend Lipton’s Black Pearl Tea…a must buy!
