I owe Lipton a huge debt. It got me drinking tea at the age of three when my mom would make it for me in my carebear or beauty and the beast mugs. It’s all my parents drink to this day, and there is always a huge quantity at hand. It’s the reason we have an insta-hot faucet installed in my kitchen, and as much as my tastes have matured, I still enjoy it with milk and sugar. So I salute you, Lipton Black Tea, my gateway drug of teas. Thank you for the world you opened up to me so many years ago.
