In the winter I drink a lot of hot tea and in the summer I make at least one batch of sun tea a day using a large glass container. The container holds a gallon of water and to that I add eight of these tea bags. Some people will want a stronger taste and might need nine or ten bags but I prefer something that's right on the edge of being strong.

The bags are individually wrapped in paper which I see as a huge waste; the paper doesn't really do much to protect the flavor of the tea nor are the wrappers strong enough to stay on the tea bag if you are taking them with you in a plastic bag. Lipton has a lot of tea blends to choose from, some of them are a little better for making iced tea than others but considering the amount of tea I make a week this is the most economical way to go and everyone loves the taste of it.

Compared to the single iced tea bags that Lipton makes, I like the flavor of using eight of these bags to one of those bags. The flavor is more defined and crisp but if you don't have a lot of sun hitting the water (if you are using an outdoor method) then you are going to get a weaker tasting tea. In the winter when I make iced tea with these I have to boil water in a large pot then add the tea bags and allow it to come to room temperature before refrigerating it.

If you are a tea snob chances are you aren't going to like how the flavor develops on the Orange Pekoe; even if you let it steep for five minutes you aren't going to get a cup of hot tea that is going to floor you with flavor so it isn't as powerful as their black tea.

I've tried several brands of black tea and Lipton is my least favorite. The first sip of tea doesn't have much flavor. Then, it gets worse as the the orange pekoe tea has a strong bitter aftertaste. The tea just isn't very enjoyable to drink. I don't expect Lipton to stand up to pricier competitors, but it doesn't compare well with teas in its own price range either. Red Rose makes a much better and much more drinkable basic black tea. I currently have some Kroger (store brand) British blend black tea in my cabinet. It is also yards and yards above Lipton. I know Lipton is popular, but I don't understand why. If you're looking for a good black tea, I'd recommend choosing something else.

Tea is definetely for me

By 

from Syracuse, New York

Comments about Lipton Orange Pekoe Tea Bags:

I am not much of a coffee drinker. Tea is my coffee, most of the time. For the truest tea drinkers, quality and taste is everything. Lipton Orange Pekoe Tea Bags have great quality and taste. I enjoy Lipton Orange Pekoe early in the morning as a way of waking myself up and staying alert. It is wonderful for when I am on my diet kick. I switch over to sugar free sweetener and have the perfect hot, deliciously warming calorie free version. The amount of caffeine in the tea is enough to get me a kick start in the morning. I enjoy the not too strong flavor that I get from steeping it for no more than 3 minutes. I have a lot of faith and trust in Lipton as having a high quality, delicious and refreshing taste. This tea - in particular is especially good to brew over the stove for an amazing pitcher of iced tea. The price of Lipton Orange Pekoe Tea is relatively moderate, considering the price of other big name brands. Lipton happens to be one of my favorites.

Good tasting tea at a good price

By

Comments about Lipton Orange Pekoe Tea Bags:

I am a tea drinker. I drink a cup of hot tea in the morning to help me wake up, I drink iced tea in the afternoon and with meals and I usually have another cup of hot tea before I go to bed. Lipton is still one of my favorites. It has a good, bold flavor and it doesn't cost too much. You can spend a lot of money on those little boxes of tea in the store or at specialty shops but to me most of them don't taste any better than Lipton. I use Lipton tea bags for both hot tea and iced tea. I have tried the powder mix instant teas for iced tea and while they are easy to use the tea just doesn't taste as good. My favorite way to make iced tea is to make sun tea. I place six Lipton tea bags in a one gallon glass container of cold water. I then place the gallon jug in a place where it will get lots of sunshine. After about one hour, I remove the tea bags and place the jug in the refrigerator or pour the tea over ice. It tastes great. If you want to make just one cup, you can just stick a cup full of water in a microwave for 2 minutes and then place a tea bag in it. After a few minutes, remove the tea bag and pour the tea into a glass and add some ice. It doesn't taste as good as the sun tea but it still tastes better than those instant teas. I also like it better than those expensive bottled teas. I think there is a reason Lipton tea bags have been around for such a long time. It is a good tasting tea at a decent price.

Very Refreshing!

Comments about Lipton Orange Pekoe Tea Bags:

My wife bought the Lipton Orange Pekoe Tea Bags because it was on sale and I really like citrus type teas and the Lipton brand. I have to say that this is one delicious tasting tea. The orange flavoring is phenomenal and will leave you wanting another cup of it.

Cheap & readily available

By 

from USA

Comments about Lipton Orange Pekoe Tea Bags:

This is the easiest tea to find around, every grocery carries it and every time I attend a function, this is one of the go-to teas available.

The taste is okay for a low cost tea, a basic black tea with a mild citrus taste. Not really for tea connoseurs, but okay if you want a hot beverage.

Lipton Tea is great for diets!

By 

from USA

Comments about Lipton Orange Pekoe Tea Bags:

Since I stopped drinking soda this is my favorite go to drink now other then water. Very refreshing. I like the fact I can just pop the bags in a jug and let sit over night. Then take them out and have fresh tea in next day. My kids enjoy tea as well. Thanks Lipton! This is a great way to help someone who needs to stop drinking soda or sugary drinks. I do not use sugar to sweeten it. I like the taste of tea. After a while it comes second nature to drink it plain. I have found that my headaches have subsided immensely. I am happy with the fact the tea has antioxidants and healthy for me.

a brand I trust

By 

from Roanoke, VA

Comments about Lipton Orange Pekoe Tea Bags:

Practically every kitchen of every home I have been in has had a box of Lipton Orange Pekoe Tea bags. Growing up Lipton was used in my home so this is the brand I purchase. I have tried other brands and except for herbal tea, I always come back to Lipton.

The flavor of Lipton tea is delicious. And I have found that I can make a quart of tea by boiling one small regualr size tea bag. And I can get a gallon of strong flavorful tea from one large family size tea bag. Tea is probably the only item that gets stronger instead of weaker as you boil it more.

I have read studies that state that the longer you boil a tea bag in water, the more flavinoids and antioxidents you get from it. Tea is very healthy for you and fights free radicals that can attack the body and cause cancer. So I drink as much tea as possible. Try organic honey and lemon instead of sugar or artificial sweetener. It tastes great. Lipton tea s priced pretty good. It is delicioius whe first brewed. And Iced Lipton tea is like none other.
