Just so Spencer doesn’t feel so alone :)

It’s not the worst I’ve had but it’s still up there.

But we’ve all had Lipton at some point, right?
It has it’s place :)

I wouldn’t want to ruin a perfectly good new-to-me-sample by pairing it with my lunch which is Malaysian Lodeh – Vegetable & Tofu Medley simmered in spiced coconut milk. It’s spicy and punchy and I wouldn’t have been able to give the new-to-me-tea a fair shake by pairing it, ya know?

When I went to Las Vegas earlier this year I remember visiting Denny’s and asking for tea and being served this tea. I was given two teabags but only used one, I still have the other bag. It was harsh and bitter but it did it’s job :)

Haha, thanks! I appreciate the company in my drinking of junk tea. That tea probably does not taste bad with the food!
On the bright side, this was my last bag of Yellow Label. No more in my life!

I posted something just for you :)

I hate it when I even have an answer to my rhetorical questions…

As a reminder of how lovely it is to have a proper cup of tea in your own cup with familiar water…?

And how important it is to actually take the time to make a proper cup of tea.

So after my previous bad experience with this bugger, I had to figure out how to make it palatable when it was given to me when I asked for black tea. Solution: steep it for 30 seconds. The best it can do is be bland and inoffensive liquid that resembles tea…which is all I’m looking for while I’m traveling. Three more nights and I can get my Yunnan Golden Buds from Verdant!

I had this tea while in Russia. It was the basic staple tea we always drank, and it was delightful. Sadly, upon returning home, I don’t think it exists in this country. Which is ridiculous, because we have Lipton tea. Maybe I’m not looking far enough? Grand tea!

Please note: this tea was drank with milk, and cubes of sugar, 1-2 per cup. :)

is it a lemon tea?

The company uses the word gentle to describe this but I think most would use a word like weak. My mom use to fix weak Lipton tea when we were sick. All this time I thought that she specifically made it weak but now I wonder.

When I travel in very basic hotels and guest houses in Asia, I am usually rather happy to find Lipton rather than other totally unknown lower-end brand.
It does not really make for a good tea, but at least it’s not bitter from the first dip of the bag into the water, the tea within the bag is not so powderish as to seep out of the bag and fill the bottom of the cup. The taste is very bland, very basic but not unpleasant.
I’ll never buy it and have it home but I find I can drink it without unpleasantness ;)

I liked this tea but not quite as much as the regular orange pekoe Lipton. My first encounter was on a recent visit to Ghana West Africa. In Kumasi it seems to be the standard tea drink (but I was only there a couple of weeks). It tends to be too strong if steeped the usual time as the regular orange pekoe that I can tell. I liked it enough to bring a box of it back to the US.

The only tea-drinking experience more disappointing than being served a cup of Lipton Yellow Label is being served a Yellow Label teabag on the side of a pot of hot water.

I first had this tea in the Baltics in 1991, then again on a train to Murmansk in 2000. It was wonderful. It tasted just like black tea except without the bitterness and with a very slight sweetness. It took years to find a grocery store in the USA that carried the yellow label. Lipton Yellow Label is my favorite tea.

This is a light black tea that is great for an everyday tea. To reviewers who say it’s bland and they prefer something stronger, I would say they’re absolutely correct, they probably prefer something stronger. however, compared to other tea’s in it’s class it holds up about as you’d expect, maybe better.
