I was visiting my Dad and his wife one weekend and ran out of the teabags I had packed. (Dad & my stepmother are coffee drinkers. I, as usual, had completely underestimated the amount of tea I drink in a weekend.) But he had bought me a box of this in honor my stay. Since he didn’t have a kettle, I had to brew this in the microwave. The results did not look promising.
But the tea actually came out well. It’s one of the best things Lipton has ever put out. I’m starting to think there isn’t any actual green tea in it, but black tea and powdered heroin or something, because every couple of months I buy a box, if I happen to find it.
Most green teas need delicate and careful handling, but you can really abuse this tea and still get a decent cup. I think it tastes best with using only hot water but I’ve accidentally used boiling water and the results were pretty much the same. It goes better with food than drunk all by it’s lonesome.
My Mom (not to be confused with my stepmother) likes to drink this hot or iced.
