This is my daily tea when I’m going through financial rough patches; just because it’s cheap, and I like it better than teabags. I also drink it because it’s the only loose leaf tea I can find at the local supermarket chains.

I like Lipton’s loose leaf black tea quite a bit better than any tea I’ve had in a teabag. The flavor is similar to the regular Lipton teabags, but a little less bitter, and the flavor is a little fuller. That being said, it’s the most bitter, and tasteless loose leaf tea I’ve ever had.

The tea itself is very finely chopped; more-so than any loose leaf tea I’ve seen. Not an expert, but I think this would be called “fannings?” I only recommend this tea on the basis of it being so cheap, and it’s better than teabags.

ahhh… The PBR of the tea world.

Nothing complex, compelling, or even interesting to this tea. It’s brews your basic crowd-pleasing iced tea. It suits my needs by taking the place of my after-work beer as I try to get healthier, and at $4/8ounces you cant go wrong as it doesn’t try to be anything it’s not…

I haven’t had Lipton tea in years, but I discovered this at a local grocery store and it was on sale. I didn’t realize Lipton produced a loose leaf version of their tea, at $4 for half a pound of tea I figured I would give it a shot. I hardly ever add sweeteners to my tea, but one sip of this and I almost choked from the bitterness. I had forgotten how astringent Lipton was. Once sweetened with some honey it’s actually a semi-enjoyable breakfast tea. I don’t regret buying it, but it’s certainly not something I’ll be drinking on a daily basis.
