lipton yellow label (loose)

ok, so i went tea shopping, and the man at the store suggested the yellow label to me as a nice mild black tea. i also saw someone here liked it. and it is a nice mellow black tea. if you don't oversteep [5 minutes is PLENTY, i may try 3 minutes and see if that helps the little bit of bitterness] it's very mellow and smooth. it has a very slightly bitter aftertaste, but it's not the worst black tea i've ever had.

for the price, it was excellent. i paid $3.50 for 15oz.

so i'm not crazy about it, but if anyone would like to try it, shoot me an email, i'll send you some. i'd feel wasteful tossing it or not drinking it. i'll even throw in some spices if you want to make it into masala chai. i also stocked up on my spices. :)

overall i prefer a bolder, earthier taste, i think. i also picked up some brook bond red label, which i was told was "very strong". it smells really nice, so i'll have some of that tomorrow.

Trade?
I can trade you for some of my favorite bagged tea (King Cole orange pekoe) if you're interested. ketherian at gmail dot com.
