Lipton Black Pearl: A Strong, Robust Morning Tea

By 

from Pittsburgh, PA

Comments about Lipton - Black Pearl Tea Bags:

If you like a strong but smooth tea for breakfast, the pyramid shaped Black Pearl bags from Lipton are worth trying. Most people will drink this hot but it does make an amazing iced tea if you brew it correctly. This can be a little hard to find in some areas because of the price but if you like a rich tea for breakfast or in the late afternoon, this is worth tracking down.

The longer you let this steep the heartier the flavor; it is comparable to Earl Grey but it is something that you can drink at any point in the day. I usually give this a four minute steep time; if you try it and it seems a little too strong you can let it stand for two to three minutes or use a little more water.

This is what I considered a premium tea; even though it is bagged and not loose, the shape and size of the bag allows for maximum flow of the water while it is brewing. It is a long-cut leaf so if you want to remove the tea from the bag and use a tea ball you can but the flavor change you get from it isn't enough to warrant the extra work. I tried that a couple times to see if I could get a smidge more flavor from it.

If you are worried about the caffeine content of hot teas you'll be happy to know that this contains the same amount of caffeine as other bagged Lipton products; one serving (one bag) contains 30 milligrams of caffeine. If you are drinking multiple cups of this you might get the jitters from it but it contains no more caffeine than other bagged teas.

Lipton's proves you don't need an exotic name to make great tea.

By 

from Houston, TX

Comments about Lipton - Black Pearl Tea Bags:

I was raised on home brewed tea from fairly early childhood and whereas the rest of the family likes their hot tea in the morning and before bed, I really prefer iced tea during the day instead. A hot cup or two is nice on a cold morning but there aren't many cold mornings where I live, it's mostly all about beating the heat. Lately we've had plenty of heat down here in Houston and I've been drinking lots of iced tea. Lipton's has pretty much been the only tea we've ever used in our family and still is, the one in the large sized box with an adequate supply of tea bags to last awhile. I've tried a few highly recommended tea brands with unusual names just to be sure they weren't any better than Lipton's and they weren't, only more expensive.

Lipton's still makes a great tea bag with clean, rich tea taste and a nice aroma. No spices, no gimmicks, just plain old healthy plantation tea. Although I live in the South I see no reason to add sweetener or sugar to iced tea and in fact find it objectionable to the straight flavor tea has. There is nothing in a can that compares to a tall glass of freshly brewed Lipton's iced tea on a sweltery summer day. I'm sure some kind of alcohol would compliment it but never felt the need to start messing with the recipe. If you're one of the majority of consumers out there who are still drinking tea out of a can with sweeteners and artificial flavors, do yourself a favor and try brewing it from tea bags. Chances are you'll notice a difference, one that will benefit your health and spirit as well. Like the company says, you are what you tea.

Lipton tea is tasty

By 

from Burbank, CA

Comments about Lipton - Black Pearl Tea Bags:

Lipton tea has several varieties of tea. Lipton is a well known name in tea products. And we will get it at a reasonable cost in the market. It's been long time that Lipton producing quality and tasty tea. It gives freshness and energy. I am a regular customer of Lipton tea prodcuts. And my whole family love this brand. Now my family members doesn't like the taste of other tea products. They can easily find out if i make tea with any other brands. We used to drink Lipton tea every morning. I used ti make tea for my husband once he came from office. It gives more energy and freshness to him.It is not as expensive, but is provides great quality. If we are comparing the taste and cost with other tea brands, taste of Lipton worth the cost. I think Lipton is the most branded products among tea prodcuts. I recommend all of u to buy Lipton tea product and feel the difference with other products.

always reliably flavorful and smooth-tasting

By 

from Bridgeport, NJ

Comments about Lipton - Black Pearl Tea Bags:

Lipton tea has been producing quality tea for many, many years. I just tried their super-size "iced tea" bags, and they are wonderful. One teabag makes more than a quart of iced tea. We've kept a fresh pitcher in the fridge all summer. Making your own tea from scratch is so much more economical than buying bottled tea. You can control the strength and you can control the amount and type of sweetener. And the cost difference is phenomenal. Try brewing your own tea next time--and try Lipton for a perfect glass of tea, every time you brew. It's never bitter and never rancid, even if you brew it strong.

Delicious black tea with high levels of natural antioxidants

By 

from Conyers, GA

Comments about Lipton - Black Pearl Tea Bags:

**Lipton Black Pearl Tea **This is a new type of tea that is from the old company Lipton. Lipton has made several new varieties of tea in this series but the one I was interested in was the Black Pearl which is advertised as long leaf tea in pyramid bags.The bags are actually pyramid shaped and let the water get at the tea leaves much more easily than the old paper bags because they are made of a mesh that lets water freely in. Because the bags are pyramid form, they stay open in the box and the box holds 20 bags. The tea is a little brisker than the standard Lipton Black Tea and it costs a little more but it seems like it is worth it. I also like Lipton Green Tea, which is in the old fashioned filter paper bags but I understand it is coming in the new pyramid bags soon, too.Either one of the teas provides a good dose of natural occuring antioxidants that work with your C and E vitamins to ward off illness.

This is a great full-bodied tea!"

By 

from Dover, PA

Comments about Lipton - Black Pearl Tea Bags:

This is a great full-bodied tea.  Lipton, a known name in tea, provides this at a reasonable cost.  It is not as expensive as specialty teas, but is great quality.  It does cost more than store brands, but the flavor is worth it.  I would compare the flavor to much more expensive teas.  The design of the bag helps the flavor as well.
