Lipton Black Pearl

I typically don't make a point of buying Lipton brand teas. I'm just not a huge fan. But I found this at a local Wal-Mart for two dollars and had a hard time passing it up. But I was pleasantly surprised. I actually really like this tea. For black tea, it is surprisingly mellow, while still being distinct and flavorful. Basically it tastes like black tea without the bitter kick to it. It's nothing super special, but it is really good black tea. The pyramid bags also allow for the tea grains to loosen from each other more than typical bags, which allows for better flavor permeation throughout the beverage. I've had about six cups of this so far and have yet to hit a weird pocket of strength in any of them (a phenomenon that I find to be fairly common when making tea with conventional bags). Anyway, I really like it. And the price was hard to beat. 

Verdict: Recommended
