From Lipton

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 okay. Cheap enough to put in my thermos to take to school every day and give me a bit of caffeine. It’s kind of like junk food—I know it’s not good, but somehow it’s relaxing in how cheap and average it is.

There’s a reason why it’s free at hotels, I guess. It’s pretty drinkable if you line your cup with honey, put the hot water directly onto two bags so that it hits as it’s being poured, steep until it’s dark enough, take one out, and put in a good bit of milk. Makeshift Asian milk tea when your resources are low.

Today at work I really felt like a having a cup of black tea with milk, and I would have loved a cup of any sort of Irish breakfast tea, but unfortunately my choices were the silver needle and the standard bag of Lipton that we keep at work. I chose the Lipton, it had been ages since I’d had any (I usually bring tea from home), so what the hell, I gave it a try. I usually add lemon to Lipton, so today was a bit different when I added milk. It wasn’t horrible and satiated my craving. As I poured the milk into the cup I was reminded of a coworker who made a cup of tea, and added a creamer to her cup, and upon doing so exclaimed that the creamer was bad! That happens occasionally in the restaurant business, so I told her to just make a new cup of tea. Then she explained that first she added the lemon, and then the creamer. I then explained that when you combine milk and lemon, the milk curdles. Hours later, when making a new cup of tea, I saw her add a creamer to her cup, and then exclaim, “it did it again!”
Me: “did you add lemon?”
Her: “yeah”
Me: “milk plus lemon will curdle every time”

And then I had to walk away.

Undrinkable hot – for me, this is what hot tea tasted like for years, and it is nasty. Iced, it is ok. Would never buy it.

The first thought was, by god this is considered tea?, couldn’t even get through one cup, and through more study found that the leaves actually smell like shreded alfalfa. though that would probably have tasted better.

This is the reason why I long thought that I didn’t like hot tea. OK sweetened and ice cold on ice cubes. But hot? Blech…

yuck, its possible to choke down a cup if u need and its free but dont pay and dont be that desperate. Awfully sweet even with just water, feels very artifical and uncomplex in flavor.

This is the black tea I grew up with, and I liked it until I tried Yorkshire. It’s still ok, but I have to be in a weird mood to drink it and it’s usually as a last resort. It tastes kind of…sour lately, and it’s pretty weak.

I have a box of it, and it’ll get used, slowly.

Everyone seems to hate this tea, But given the choice It may be my second favorite tea still, Granted, I dont brew it for long, and I add lits of sugar. But I still enjoy it if theses nothing else.

As others have said here, this is better than no tea at all, but nothing to write home about. I have a handful of the teabags left from restaurant visits (they bring me two, I use one, pocket the other for later), so I’m trying to be thrifty and use some of it up. At least I started out the morning with one of my favorites before moving to this!
