I’ve been drinking this tea regularly for about a year. Although I may have been attracted by the low price at first, I’ve kept buying it for the high quality. It’s as good as, or better than, any of the big-name brands and leaves most of them, including Lipton, far behind. One tea bag makes three good cups, which I drink with a little sugar. Since Family Dollar stopped carrying this “staple,” I no longer have a reason to shop at Family Dollar and hope only to find another good source for this tea!

I fixed for me a simple cup of this tea prior to a morning walk. I buy this tea because it is inexpensive, and I realize my money would work best on things I like regardless of the cost. So I will not give in to impulse to purchase these brand names simply because I am in a store and they sell it and it is for a dollar or such.

This tea is fine for a good cup of tea. I take one tea bag and put this in my cup adding the boiled water and leave it to steep for five minutes. I like how the tea colors to a brightly reddish brown…that amber glow when held directly in sunlight or light fixture. The aroma is that of a full bodies roast like tea. And sipping the tea it is not astringent instead it has that creamy finish quality of a malt drink with a slight drying effect when swallowing and I think this is because no cream or sugar has been added to the tea.

The tea’s tannins seem more prevalent with nothing added to the tea so the overall tasting and lasting impression is dry and perhaps wanting more to quench taste buds.
