Review of Black Pearl Tea

Surprisingly different from Lipton teabags, and surprisingly high quality. Rich, malty aroma, some bitterness in the aftertaste but smoother up front. A remarkably pleasing, full-bodied tea. I recommend brewing for about 3 minutes...more and it becomes too tannic.

My main complaint about this one, like all of Lipton's pyramid teas, is the nylon teabags that are not biodegradable. Why can't they get this right?
