What was this “tea”?
Company motto is “Ceylon’s gift to the world”
I think they meant German word Gift, not English one. In German it means poison.

THIS WAS TERRIBLE.
I have hoped it is black tea with citrus fruits. Their website: www.empireteas.com did not brought any results of this (or other teas). I have been warned by it, but still I wanted to try.

Oh, and I haven’t noticed the ingredients list on the backside. But it is there.

So, apparently it does not include any tea at all. But hey, it was so bad! Even smell of dry bag reminded me dish soap, artificial lemon, drying, medicinal. Taste, even brewed with almost boiling water… was disgusting! It was soooo artificial, sour and not even close to lemon. I would rather drink straight lemon juice than this tea again.

Yes, I finished my mug of tea… but luckily I was eating Scottish butter cookies along, otherwise I will throw up.

Bleh, never again. I have few more tea bags of this company, but now, I am not really sure if I want to try it.

Yuck! Lemon teas can be awful. Maybe you could save it by making ice tea with it . . . or you could just throw it out!

Ewwwwww! Sorry you had a bad tea experience. Or in this case, a “not really tea” experience.

This was certainly the worst. I don’t know if in lifetime, but certainly in my Steepster time. Yuck.
