For a brand that costs only a dollar, this is a fairly good teabag of Ceylon orange pekoe. Nice citrusy flavor, and a little astringent at the finish, but this is typical of Ceylon tea.
I bought this at Winco on a whim as we were really short on money and I was out of tea. I was prepared for absolute muck. I was so surprised. Quite a full flavor even though the bags were a little light in tea content. I grew up with my mother drinking Orange pekoe teas, so it’s a very familiar and comforting flavor. I’m fully prepared to buy this again. I have tended to use 2 bags for a very large cup I have, and sometimes even get a second cup from the bags.
My husband likes it to cold steep overnight in a carafe and I flavor with lemon and sugar for him to take to work.
I don’t get it. We bought this tea at a place called The Dollar Tree where everything is one US dollar (plus tax of course). This tea was supposed to suck. It doesn’t suck at all. In fact, this bagged tea is comparable with the Bigelow Premium Ceylon I got last week. Beautiful amber colour, lovely Ceylon aroma…I’m very impressed by this tea. I wrote to the company (www.globalbrandsllc.com) and told them so!
