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.

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.

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.
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!
This one is a classic. The first tea I ever had, though it was decaf back then (mother didn’t want mer 8 year old tea drinking bouncing off the walls I suppose). We use this for everything in my house. Hot, iced, black, lemon, milk with sugar or honey, you name it. When we make a batch of iced tea with this blend, we heat it up in a pot on the stove, often with a few sprigs of fresh mint from the herb garden. If that isn’t available, we’ll add a bag of Peppermint tea to the pot, or Raspberry, or Peach. Usually when we make iced, however, we do use the decaf, because everyone in the house likes to drink it, but not all of us like to be caffeinated that often.
