Commercial Description

...grown on the highest-elevation tea estates in Sri Lanka, known around the globe for the purity of their tea leaves and their robust flavor. Gently plucked by hand, the long leaves of Lipton Black Pearl Tea remain true to the natural state of the tea leaf.

RateTea Notes

This tea was discontinued due to low sales; the closet remaining product is Lipton's Stirring Ceylon, a newer tea and the only other single-origin Ceylon tea sold by Lipton, but that is sold in flat tea bags, not pyramid sachets.

I highly prefer this tea over the cheaper black teas available. The long leaf tea used here really shines through and provides a smoothly balanced flavor complex. Slight floral notes add to the overall experience, providing a lovely cup of tea.

Longer brewing may yield a more bitter end to the cup, but even so, it's still a nice flavor.

Taking garbage out of a plastic can and putting it into a golden can doesn't increase the value of the garbage. Lipton's attempt at polishing trash isn't fooling anyone.

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?

Well....about all I can say for this tea is that it is a cut above the Lipton teabags. Although I'm not sure I can even say that, because the teabags possess an unmistakable musty flavor that, although not particularly tasty, is unique. This is just mediocre black tea.
