I love sipping a glass of sweet tea.
Use to use lipton,but I use Luzianne now and love the taste and the price.
I have always loved restaurant sweet tea, but had a hard time replicating that wonderful taste at home. I finally tried Luzianne tea bags especially for iced tea. I steep 2 family bags for 5 minutes in 2 quarts of boiling hot water, then add 1 cup of sugar. It is perfect! The flavor is nice and smooth...no bitterness. The strings stay attached pretty well. I have had a few break when removing them. The bags themselves stay together very well preventing tea granules from being left in the tea pitcher upon removal. The tea bags come in convenient box with an easy open lid. The Luzianne brand comes in several different varieties. The ones that I use are the original and original decaffeinated. I love that the tea is plain and simple with no weird after taste. Through all of my searching, these tea bags make the best sweet tea. These tea bags are very affordable and can be found at any grocery store, which is very convenient.
In 1932 William B. Reily's Luzianne Tea was flying off the selves like hot cakes all over the southeast. Luzianne has a very fine blend of tea leaves which keep it from tasting too bitter, which is why Luzianne is great for making sweet tea. You really can't go wrong with a golden classic like this.
I have to say that Luzianne tea I was on the best tasting tea's on the market. Living in the south we really know our tea and this makes on fine sweet tea. I even took a couple of box's of tea bags to Iraq with me and brewed in jars by leaving it in the sun light.
The price is right with these tea bags! They also come in family-size tea bags which makes it very easy to brew for iced-T. Then add sugar and well nothing like a large glass of sweet tea wherever you live.
I love Ice Tea so much I drink it year-round. I prefer tea without sweetners. I think I've tried every brand and type made. Luzianne is never bitter and it can be made ahead of time. I usually make it the night before by filling a gallon jug with very hot water. Then I drop in a family size Luzianne tea bag, screw o the cap and shake it a few times. If I want some extra flavor I add 4 small bags of a flavored tea like Bengal Spice, Tension Tamer, Plantation Mint, or Chamomile.When it cools I put it in the fridge and have a glass any time I want. So I don't run out I have 2 jugs.
I'm not originally from the South, but I heard that Luzianne tea is what Southerners use to make sweet tea. This product is readily available in TN. I love home brewing tea because it's so much cheaper than buying it! I would recommend Luzianne, but I don't think it's any worse or better than Lipton.
***yes, I have (still do) spend money on other teas...(greens, blacks, ect)*** ***but...plain Iced tea that has a brilliant bright taste, and a "tinglie" sweet finish*** ***Luzianne just works!*** ***you use less, that's true, *** ***it brews great..true, i*** ***it is cheap...true*** ***stays true to flavor even after a few days (if you can let it stay around that long)*** ***the only down side it can be difficult to find*** ***just try it simple...boiling water, tea, brew, put in fridge*** ***tall glass, ice...mmmmmMMmmMMm perfect*** ****

This is just a fantastic product. I love the taste and ease of the product. I take my pitcher and pour in hot water from the sink. I then put the bag in and the artifical sweetner and just walk away and leave it for a couple of hours. No one knows that I do not boil it or go to all that trouble. Everyone who comes to my house is always wanting a glass. Love this brand.
