Lipton English Breakfast Tea Review

Image of Lipton English Breakfast Tea in Brewing Clear MugIf there’s one segment of the tea market I know well, it’s English Breakfast. I have a pretty good idea about what to expect from these teas, and Lipton missed the mark with this one.

Lipton English Breakfast is a blend of Ceylon and Kenya teas, which is  not unusual for a breakfast blend. In this case, however, the result is very light in body and very bright in flavor with a lemon-like pungency.

Overall, I don’t mind this tea. It’s fine for an afternoon lift, just don’t call it “English breakfast.”
