Sometimes a pitcher of tea gets an odd taste before my husband and I can drink it all, so I like being able to make it one glass at a time. This tea is fine to me because I like very sweet tea with lemon flavor. It would probably be better if Lipton would leave off a little of the lemon flavor since it's so strong. It takes a bit of stirring to get the sugar to dissolve but that's normal if the water is not hot. If you don't want lots of lemon flavor, or if you prefer your tea a little less sweet, this tea is not for you.
