Choked down half a cup, hot at a conference as there were no other options and I needed liquid/caffeine. Blegh! Not so much bad tasting, as flavorless and sad. Note to self – put teabags in new purse so that nextime I can BYOT!
Now that’s a good idea!
Just seeing the logo on the box brings back memories — basically this was the main tea that was available when I was growing up. How things have changed. Makes me think of my dad. He’d take a big box to work and have a cup with his lunch every day. This is what Americans thought tea was in the 60s and 70s for the most part. Lol.
If they have milk, it helps. Or lemon.
My humans started carrying teabags with them (even though they prefer loose tea – just too impractical when dining out) to avoid the same situation.
Little Yellow Teapot, why don’t they use empty ones and fill them w/ their own loose tea. Best of both worlds:)
Well, as you can see, my humans don’t always think of the obvious. I will pass your suggestion along. Sounds like a good alternative. Of course, they could always put some loose tea in a little plastic baggie, but then, they’d need an infuser or a strainer… hmm, gets complicated. Your idea sounds better.
There are definitely some pretty good bagged/sachet tea, but filling them yourself elimintates the need for trial and error.
I think my rating was more a reflection of my frustration — I was at a conference where we all padi $20 for refreshments, and the only tea was a box of Lipton. At least a Bigelow variety pack would have shown some consideration (and been appropriate wince we were in Charleston). Anyway, in the right context I enjoy this tea. Piping hot with lemon in a diner on a cold, rainy day, it’s a lifesaver. Catching up with my mother in law over a large mug with milk & sugar, it’s great too. I’m sure my first tea was Lipton, and I’d rather have it than no tea at all!
This is what they provide at work (and no complaints, as it is free) and I make iced tea with it if I don’t have anything better to hand. But I find it very tannic and I have to dose it with lots of sweetener and lemon.

Hiding under a warm blanket until Spring. Just bring me hot tea and dark chocolate at regular intervals!
