While this is not the most exciting, refined, or even particularly high quality cup, this is my comfort tea. It was the brand my mother always bought when I was a child (and still does), and was the tea that was served when I had a cold, when we’d make sun tea in the summer, and at my first tea parties.

Okay, so the flavor isn’t spectacular. The leaves are chopped into the smallest pieces imaginable. But it’s a happy tea for me, and lends well to have things added to it, something you wouldn’t want to do with your best sencha. With a teaspoon of rose syrup, even this tea tastes elegant and smooth.

Cheap and better than Lipton’s. My morning source of caffeine. Like it best with milk and honey or sugar.

(Review for decaf) Not spectacular, but excellent for the price, and much more flavorful than Lipton. As such, I find it perfect for making large batches of iced tea, and at the price I don’t have to feel guilty about using ten to fifteen tea bags at a time. Very nice with fresh mint.

like most others, this was the tea that I grew up with. My mother usually purchased it to make sun tea during the summer. As a college student I keep the tea around the house because it is cheap and ‘somewhat’ tasty. I will usually drink any plain tea such as this, probably from the several years spent tagging along to random coney islands at bizarre hours of the night with my ‘hip’ coffee drinking friends.
-i also totally collect the figurines that come in the boxes :)

While this isn’t my favourite tea in the world when I’m in my tea-snob mood, it reminds me of the comforts of home. A little cream, a little sugar, and a whole lot of happiness.

nothing extra special, nothing bad, but a nice warm cup on a cold grey day with special friends

This is a favorite from my childhood. Mom discovered it when she lived in Canada and now I’m hooked. You have to be really careful about not oversteeping, though, because it gets bitter fast.

This is the family favorite for Iced Tea. My grandma always used it and now I always use it.
Great basic black tea!

I had this tea down the shore and I don’t know if it was the water or the blend, but every cup I drank was AWESOME. I don’t know why I haven’t picked up a box yet.
