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.

A town that runs out of tea… shudder

Calochortus

…It was eerie, like the Twilight Zone.

We are discovering that most Great Value stuff is decent and comparable to brand names. Haven’t tried the tea, but when it’s time to stock up on cheapies for sun tea and eye compresses, I’ll remember your thumbs up.

Calochortus

gmathis, I’d consider it pretty comparable to Lipton or Red Rose — I haven’t tried it as iced tea, but I would think it would be ok. Just be careful about tea dust…

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.
