It’s a cheap, old faithful. I come back to this because I was raised on it. Several of my friends want a tea they can put milk and sugar in, so we find this does a more than adequate job.

The tea that started it all. LIPTON Orange Pekoe and Pekoe cut black tea is the perfect blend for the perfect cup of tea. Our original tea has been brewed for years for a reason: it tastes delicious.
It's Lipton,. They're pretty big.

Bleugh! My first cup of this — I’ll never forget it — was in Miami, at a posh tennis club. I was thirteen, on holiday with my family, and thought I’d act grown up by ordering a pot of tea. The tea came already bagged in the cup; the water was ‘lukehot’; the pot was metal and had one of those godawful lids that leaks all over Creation when you pour. ~ I have to admit: I’ve never had a decent cuppa in the US, unless I made it myself.
As i’m sure with a lot of people this tea was what started me down my love of teas! I drink it with milk and it tastes fine with or without sugar(coming from someone who started off drinking it with two heaped teaspoons of sugar and slowly downgraded my sugar ratio to none)I don’t have it very often anymore as i now have 17 different teas to choose from rather than two (black or green)but i still enjoy it just as much as i did when i started drinking tea!
