Say what you want, but this is still what I often think about when I think of “standard” black tea. Sure, there isn’t anything that special about it, but I wouldn’t say it’s bad. There is a certain advantage to being able to enjoy a cup of cheap lipton, because I can buy a box of 100 bags for a few bucks and at least know I can have tea whenever I want, which helps keep me away from other caffeine sources. A perfect “focus on your work” tea companion that keeps you warm and caffeinated, but doesn’t take up your attention.
