I haven’t had Lipton tea in years, but I discovered this at a local grocery store and it was on sale. I didn’t realize Lipton produced a loose leaf version of their tea, at $4 for half a pound of tea I figured I would give it a shot. I hardly ever add sweeteners to my tea, but one sip of this and I almost choked from the bitterness. I had forgotten how astringent Lipton was. Once sweetened with some honey it’s actually a semi-enjoyable breakfast tea. I don’t regret buying it, but it’s certainly not something I’ll be drinking on a daily basis.

I took a small break from tea drinking during the summer, I’m not a huge fan of ice teas and it was generally too hot outside for standard preparation. I’m back now and working through my collection again. Most of the tea I have right now is about a year old and from Adagio… But I’m slowly adding some new, higher quality teas. With that said, even the old Adagio stuff I’m really enjoying.
