One of Lipton’s better teas. It’s a non-spectacular black, but the price and convince can be compelling. The liquor is actually a very nice deep dark amber, the aroma is almost non-existent however, and it’s got a touch of.. “oily” to it.

Better than average, and convenient in a teabag. Nothing majorly special about it, though

Very basic black tea, I usually use it to make honey milk tea. It blends very nicely with the milk and honey I add.

What can I say, I really enjoy this tea. It tastes good hot and makes a delicious glass of iced tea. I found these on sale for $1.25 a box. I wasn’t sure if I would like it or not, so I only bought one box, big mistake because now they’re gone.

Very smooth basic black tea, I’ve yet to have a bad cup with it. As long as it is on the store shelves it’ll also be in my cupboard.

How i got it: Tried it while having supper at my cousin’s house

Experience: When you are eating at the table with your family, you can’t be too picky with your steeping times, hehe. So i tried to guess something like 3 mins, and try this tea. Aroma wise, it’s very light, and took me some effort to distinguish the tea scent, which was a mild, powered-down version of the classic Ceylon tea smell, with less fruity and more floral notes. In the taste side, that was the case too. Less caramel and crisp notes than usual, and more smooth, floral ones. I’d have liked a bit more intensity (maybe a couple seconds more could have helped), but this was a fairly good tea.

Would i buy it?: Maybe I’ll get a box someday to reevaluate

My fiance,in his quest for the perfect(ly cheap) version of an Arnold Palmer, brought this one back to me. I snatched one for a cup of morning tea and was pleasantly surprised. I wasn’t expecting anything, but it was a pretty good black tea. And absolutely strong enough for his AP!

Surprised a Lipton tea tastes like anything in particular, but I am getting kind of a honey note from this. I dunno, I have some David’s Yunnan Black on the way and hopefully it’ll give me a better basis for comparison, but this is surprisingly decent. Not something you pay too much attention to, but there’s definitely a flavor there. Good if you’re running late and don’t have time to do a higher-quality tea justice.
