Meh, it’s tea. Does a 1/2lb box @ $5.00 compare to David’s Tea for $6.00/50g? Hell no. Is Lipton prepared wrong by 98% of the pseudo tea-drinking population? Yes. Everyone can point out goods and bads about most teas, but on thing is for sure… this tea is a generic taste that cost very little and can be bought at 24/7 stores and gas stations. I think that in the tea world where everyone has become used to cornflowers, oranges, berries, and blooms within their pots… this minimal tea is left out in the cold. It gets a bad wrap, but I’m sure it was a “gateway tea” for many people here.
