Sucky Lipton Tea Bags

Am I the only one experiencing this? I remember as a kid Lipton used to run commercials about the quality of its flow through tea bag. Lately, over the past year, that quality seems to be non-existent. Doesn’t matter if I’m in Ohio, Illinois or Oregon, whenever I buy a box of Lipton tea bags I always end up with leaves in my tea. Some people may consider this part of drinking tea, but I don’t. Quite honestly the only reason I went back to buying Lipton is I cannot find Teeley tea bags anymore.

Getting a glass full of swirling leaves when you pour iced tea is not a thing to cherish.

Roland Hughes started his IT career in the early 1980s. He quickly became a consultant and president of Logikal Solutions, a software consulting firm specializing in OpenVMS application and C++/Qt touchscreen/embedded Linux development. Early in his career he became involved in what is now called cross platform development. Given the dearth of useful books on the subject he ventured into the world of professional author in 1995 writing the first of the "Zinc It!" book series for John Gordon Burke Publisher, Inc. A decade later he released a massive (nearly 800 pages) tome "The Minimum You Need to Know to Be an OpenVMS Application Developer" which tried to encapsulate the essential skills gained over what was nearly a 20 year career at that point. From there "The Minimum You Need to Know" book series was born. Three years later he wrote his first novel "Infinite Exposure" which got much notice from people involved in the banking and financial security worlds. Some of the attacks predicted in that book have since come to pass. While it was not originally intended to be a trilogy, it became the first book of "The Earth That Was" trilogy: Infinite Exposure Lesedi - The Greatest Lie Ever Told John Smith - Last Known Survivor of the Microsoft Wars When he is not consulting Roland Hughes posts about technology and sometimes politics on his blog. He also has regularly scheduled Sunday posts appearing on the Interesting Authors blog.
