Not bad, considering this is a teabag. It tastes like a basic but not bitter black tea, and I do notice some raisin-like notes as well. It’d be a good at-work tea.

I was really excited to see loose-leaf tea for sale in ALDI, and I eagerly bought this. I can't remember how much it cost but I think it was around $5. I had written some time back about how frustrated I was at how bad the tea bag teas from Benner Tea Co, the ALDI generic brand, were.

ALDI consistently has high-qual...

Black Tea from Lipton Tea

Apr. 7th, 2020

Lipton gets a bad rap. I get it too. It’s light, bland, and shallow.

I over-steeped my tea because I start with water that is less than a rolling boil, but really it was because I needed all that time to bring out any semblance of taste.

Lipton is a tea, but that’s about it.

You don’t even need two sente...

Classic English Breakfast tea but I expected more from Twinings here. You aren't hit by this tea (like by Typhoo). I like a bit of a stronger note in taste. This one is unspectacular. I really tried to find something special in this tea but didn't find anything.

Cup at home. Pours nearly clear light copper brown with no sediment. Clear but mild aroma of black tea, with very mild hints of caramel. Smooth but bitter flavour of black tea, ending on a dryish note. This is my staple black tea, which I drink several times a day when I don't have the time to enjoy more sophisticated ...

It's been a while since I've had tea from Barry's. I've had the Gold Blend in the past and I really liked it so I figured I would try the Irish Breakfast. On the front on the box it says it's their "lightest and most refreshing blend," but I don't agree with that haha!

It brews up a nice dark color with some slight...

For background, Cain's has a similar-sounding black tea that I've seen sold in stores here in Oklahoma for many years, but haven't tried yet. It comes in large-sized bags for the purpose of brewing a couple quarts at a time to make iced tea, but I don't know if it's the same blend of pekoes as this single-serving, foo...

Caffeine generally doesn't bother me, even before sleepytime (lower-case, not to be confused with the Celestial Seasonings brand of herbal tea). As such, I am still rather inexperienced with decaf teas, outside of 1) a couple of lame food-service brands and 2) a strongly flavored variety that I have loved dearly for a...

Finely chopped, decaf, food-service black teas in wax-paper wrappers don't inspire a great deal of confidence, so I guess this offering managed to exceed my low expectations.

I got a few of these as a restaurant and took one home to brew in good water, for fairness' sake, since the cafe was in a town with sketchy wa...

The box says that it's a blend of Keemun and Ceylon teas. There are notes of cocoa and dark bread crust and the flavor's quite complex for grocery store tea, but it's too bitter and astringent.

The tea gets better and mellows a bit as it cools. The cocoa becomes more pronounced and I can taste the sweetness from the...

I have been drinking this tea for longer than I can remember. It’s delicious. For me it IS tea. Tea? Liptons, of course. Cold or hot, it does not disappoint.
BUT...what the heck is up with the tag? When I was a child the tag was there and useful for dunking. Now it’s wrapped around the bag and stapled. I have to...

Since finding their regular bagged tea a couple years ago, I was hoping to run across the decaf version for a taste test too, and also, for a pre-bedtime black-tea chug after another day spent roaming the highways and byways of this land. For some reason, outside of the occasional Bigelow bag, it's hard to find decaf ...

I was surprised off the bat by the unexpected aroma from the brewing tea. Instead of an Assam or Ceylon blend, it smells like inexpensive Yunnan teabags like Foojoy. It's smoky, earthy and woodsy.

The flavor reinforces my guess that this blend is predominantly Chinese. Astringent without bitterness, this tea tastes ...

When I do drink regular Lipton tea, it's usually from a catering tray where it may have sat for a day or a month. On a whim, I got a small, sealed package (fifteen teas bags for a dollar) so I could try it fresh.

When dry, it smells oaky and leafy, but muted. After steeping, it develops a bit more character and ther...

Like Okie, I found this tea at La Quinta in Sacramento. It was the only tea offering. I wasn't impressed, not much flavor or aroma. Certainly nothing I'd call malty about this. Maybe it was just old?

When I was in England... the English gifted me with this tea. They said to me, "Here. Our tea of England. Drink it, and become English." And that I did... The truth is, this tea carries some spiritual essence of England within it's leaves. I don't know if England intentionally grows spiritual tree's in their lands, but...

(Retired) An interesting tea that is good with just a little sugar and it can take milk as well. Lemon is doable too but not the best. There is a light prunelike sweetness that comes thru in the moderately robust flavor.

A very strong black tea that didn't have much going for it other than its strength.

Served at the Gander's Family Restaurant in Luna Pier, MI (super cheap diner with pretty good but very basic diner food! I recommend it more than this tea!) Tea isn't usually the strong suits of these types of restaurants, but I do t...

Like the others who reviewed this, I was surprised that it tastes nothing like the regular Twinings English Breakfast. I remember that tasting more woody and malty, with a bit of the usual Assam dried fruit note. This has some slightly tangy tropical fruit notes that make me think of Keemun, but it also has this weird ...

The standard tea bags are wrapped in paper, so if they're not put into an airtight container, they'll probably start to go stale before the box of 100 is finished. The dry tea looks like a blend of orthodox and CTC produced teas and smells smoky, malty and a bit like fresh straw.

The brewed tea is disappointing. The...

This tea is a full bodied tea with an excellent taste. Not as cheap as some and not as expensive as others especially when stocks of it got lower and lower.

I have drunk this tea since I was little and once it was no longer in the shops I was able to get it direct from Bell Tea, however it seems like they have run ...

Smells and tastes like a firepit. That's all I need to say. But that ain't all I'm sayin'... So, this tea, if you've got a rough demeanor, is just for you. Me and my few biker friends will enjoy this stuff now and then. We all may sit by the firepit after a ride, smoke some cigars, and drink some burnt wood tea ("BWT" ...

I like this tea! It's so good with a good helpin' of milk!! A good ole helpin'!!! And a little sugar. Tasty breakfast. Provided you're eating food with your breakfast. Overall, I'd say it's a distinctive black tea. Probably one of the most likeable tea's I can think of!
