I have to be really honest. I don’t like black tea, it’s strong & bitter. But let me tell you, I’m loving this Great Value Black Tea. I came across this tea when sampling all the Great Value teas. This tea’s flavor is full and flavorful and is exactly what black tea drinkers are looking for in a black tea. The price and quality is a tea lover’s dream.
I’m always have this tea in my pantry when my aunt visits. She loves iced tea and so do I occasionally. What I have noticed about this tea is that it really holds it’s own compared to Lipton. For the price, you really can’t beat it. I whip up some of my favorite iced tea recipes with these tea bags and they taste like high end, expensive tea. Just food for thought and wanted to pass my feedback on.
When I first tried the regular Great Value Green Tea, I was so surprised of the quality & flavor of the Great Value teas that I wanted to try them all. Decaf Green was next on my list and it did not disappoint. I was quite pleased at the taste and notes in this tea. Very outstanding for the price. Great tea at WalMart? Who knew!
This tea was first brought to my attention during my Tea Club when we were challenged to bring a tea that we never tried before. I went to my local WalMart only to find this tea. I was very skeptical and was nervous to give this green tea a try. I brought it to my club, served it, and it was surprising wonderful & smooth. The flavor wasn’t bitter at all (which is what I was expecting). This tea is great for both tea and green tea lovers. I like to drink this particular tea iced with tons of iced cubes!
For some reason, my whole town ran out of tea — Tetley, Lipton, Red Rose, Twinings, Tazo, and even the ever-present Stash. With our tea stash withered down to herbals and greens, my family got desperate and decided to get a box of Great Value from Walmart.
To be honest, it’s not that bad. Good for mornings when you don’t have time for loose-leaf, and ok for iced tea. Lots of tea dust, though, and my mother didn’t like the aftertaste. If there’s ever another tea shortage in my area, I wouldn’t mind picking up another box — but only if it’s the last choice.
By “Great Value” they mean CHEAP. It’s tea dust mostly. Stems included. If you steep it long enough, you can actually taste the Assam character but you also run the risk of enhancing the bitterness of the stem fannings. Still, this tea is better than Lipton. I picked it up at Wal-Mart. 100 bags for $3.26 US.
