Besides, it left me more time to mess around with the coffee...grinding the coffee beans (sometimes roasting them!), deciding which apparatus to use: the electric coffee maker that cost more than my car (which actually sounds more expensive than it is...you'd have to see the car to understand), the stove top pot, turkish pot, vietnamese filter, Melitta filter, Boodum press...it was not just coffee, it was a morning's occupation. For a while. The final collapse of civilization arrived with the Keureg coffeemaker. Pour in cold water, press a button, shove in a K-Cup. Greet Satan.
Anyway, the arrival of the Lipton K-Cups made me realize how horribly overworked I was by having to dip that teabag into the mug, take it out, find a place to put it...why labor endlessly when Decadence Beckons? It's gonna taste lousy, I figured, but so what. It will be easy! I popped one of the Lipton K-Cups in, pressed the button and...great tea. It must be the water temperature and the amount of time the water stays on the tea, or maybe it's the work of Old VooDoo Daddy himself. I don't care.Read more ›
Now, if you really want to give that `tea provided' energy a big boost, give this one a try: All Natural Organic - High Energy Caffeine Instant Black Tea Powder (Over 100 Servings Per Package) - Buy One Get One Free!
This is some of the strongest black tea that I have found. It also includes a nice amount of added caffeine and even theanine, which is responsible for leveling out that energy surge. Not to mention the fact that the taste is very good--incredibly rich and very strong. I like having this in morning since it really gets things off to a great start and takes almost no time (it is instant after all).
Even as it was brewing the aroma was not the aroma of tea that I'm used to but it had a "sweetish" aroma.
I drink my tea either plain or with lemon and sugar. I tried this "Indulge" blend both ways and was equally disappointed each time. Mrs. Boilermate tried this plain as well, and she said she didn't care for it either.
I'm not sure what the "natural flavor" is that is listed on the ingredients panel, but both Mrs. Boilermate and I thought the tea had a distinctive vanilla flavor. While vanilla goes well with many things, it decidedly does not go with this tea.
We don't recommend this tea, and we certainly won't "Indulge" again. I rarely give "One Star" ratings to a product, but I really disliked this tea that much.
*** Update, September 28, 2013 ***
Shortly after I submitted this review, Mrs. Boilermate took the remaining K cups to her office and left them beside the Keurig machine in the break room for anyone to take. As of this date, she reports less than half of them have been used, so it seems that we aren't the only ones who don't care for this flavor.
I love tea. I drink nothing but iced tea, morning, noon and night (yes, I'm strange). Most of the time, I brew about a gallon of tea a day. I'm not a "tea snob" and I like many different types, brands, etc. For black tea, Lipton has been one of my favorites for well over 30 years. When I saw they had this "Iced Sweet Tea", I actually got really excited.
Some days, I don't have the time to brew a pitcher so I was looking forward to being able to make a glass at a time for those occasions when that happened.
I also DETEST stevia. It has an absolutely horrible taste (to me). I made a point of reading the entire listing to see if there was any mention of stevia - there wasn't. The listing said that it's made "from young tea leaves and cane sugar". I even went directly to the Lipton website before ordering it to see if there was any mention of it there - but there wasn't. They repeated the same line about using cane sugar - no mention of stevia.
I happily ordered it, stupidly expecting exactly what it said in the product listing. When it came in, I opened the box and made a glass, expecting the simple flavor of tea and sugar. NOT what I got. It had a HORRIBLE flavor and the aftertaste was even worse. I immediately looked at the box (which I SHOULD have done before opening it) and saw that stevia WAS listed on the box.
I find it incredibly misleading that they don't mention this in their listing, either here OR on their own website. For those that WANT stevia, they should be aware of it so they CAN order it and for those of us that can't stand the stuff, we should know so that we DON'T order it.
As I said, I truly enjoy the taste of Lipton tea, but this is a HUGE FAIL on their part. It's truly a case of false advertising!!
