Bought it because it was cheap, and ended up pleasantly surprised. It's definitely better than Lipton, although that's a low bar to jump over.

You could do worse. I got this as a default black tea served at a local breakfast joint in Tulsa (at least they don't use Lipton like seemingly 99.99999% of everyone else!). Yes, it's richer than Lipton (not hard to accomplish), and not bad overall on the flavor side, but with a rather feeble aroma, both in the bag and in the cup.

The cup grew on me as I drank. At first it seemed bland and ordinary, but slowly became reasonably flavorful and stronger with each sip, which is unusual in my experience. It has a hint of malt and surprisingly little bitterness. It's not knock-your-socks-off great, but still pleasant, and beats the mass-produced other-99.99999% default rubbish.

I would not say this is the best tea I have ever tasted but I will say it is the best value for a good tasting tea I have come across. I have been drinking this tea for a few years now because Fortnum and Mason Royal Blend got too expensive for me. I let my tea bags steep for 10 minutes to get the most out of them and I use 3 teabags for a 20 oz cup. I have gone back to using whole milk with this tea. It is a very good tea for what it is and one of the best deals out there when you buy 12 boxes at the time.

Rich taste; makes strong cup of tea the way I like it. Reminds me of Irish tea, but much more affordable.

I absolutely love this tea. After spending years switching daily between a number of teas I now drink this tea exclusively. When I have to drink other brands now I am sorely missing the great flavor of this tea. Nice body and aroma.

Impressive for a simple paper-wrapped tea bag.

Typical black tea aroma, not terribly complex. Mostly deep and malty, like an Assam, but with some of the tones characteristic of Ceylon. Slightly smoky. Significantly lighter than a pure Assam.

Surprisingly, this tea has a substantial savory or umami flavor. It almost tastes a bit salty as well. I can't say if I like this quality or not.

Very inexpensive. Not what I'd choose to drink every day, but it was worth trying and it was significantly better than I had expected.
