From Lipton

This exquisite tea was formerly marketed as “Lipton Green Label Darjeeling Leaf Tea.”

Over Darjeeling’s gentle hills the elements come together to give you Lipton’s Finest Darjeeling Tea – 100% pure, black Darjeeling leaf tea. Lipton’s single region, unbleached Darjeeling Tea as an aroma so exquisite, a flavor so distinctive – it’s no wonder they call it “the champagne of teas.” Inhale the aroma, sip it’s delicate flavor, rolling it over your tongue slowly while you savor the taste. Then as you immerse yourself in its luxurious flavor you will find yourself saying, “Cheers!”

Product of India.

I have not added any notes for about 6 days, because my ISP has virtually shut down.And it’s come to this: Drinking Lipton tea-bag Darjeeling at McDonalds.
I did so at MvcDonald Noarlunga on Saturday. And it was pretty bad. But then again, it’s one of the worst McDonalds for anything.
Sunday, hit McDonalds Reynella. Slightly better. I think they filter the water.
Today is Monday, back at McD’s Moarlunga and I have been served the single worst cup of tea ever. Not even my mother-in-law had plumbed these depths.
I waited 15 minutes. So did the tea, apparently. It was lukewarm – and that’s being generous.
So, I asked for it to be re-made. To be honest, I was a little prickly.
The remake is a slightly hotter version of the rubbish I was served.
Here’s how it goes: McDonalds aim at “cheap and cheerful” and generally get that half right. I had enough of sulky adolescents when I had two at home.
The tea is rubbish. Lipton bags are not up to any sort of standard – I wish I’d just had one of the Dilmah bags under the other counter. They’re better for being stronger and I like Dilmah’s ethics.
So a poor product, made by the incompetent and the unwilling, served to a massive tea snob in a bad mood.
At least when I’m typing, I’m not drinking….

did not enjoy this hot, but i really like it as brewed iced tea!!

i have tried a few different brewing methods now and the flavor is delicious each time. bringing the water to boil with tea and straining after it cools seems to work best for tea flavor, but boiling the water and pouring over sugar and then steeping the tea works better for sweetened tea.

I use this tea for my masala chai recipe. It has a nice strong flavor perfect for masala chai. I’ve never really liked Lipton tea, but this one is surprisingly good.
