Idle hands being the devil's workshop, yesterday during coffee break I noticed I had two different kinds of tea bags. I had Shop Rite as well as Lipton. I never noted any real difference between them but always assumed the Lipton was a tiny bit better since it was the name brand. Yesterday I did a taste test. I microwaved two cups filled with water and the two tea bags. I sampled the two teas.
The results? I could not tell them apart. The tea bags looked the same. The amount of tea in the two bags seemed to be the same. The flavor seemed to be the same to me. The color was about the same. Perhaps next time I'll try a more exotic (and expensive) tea.
