Growing up, we didn't have a lot of money for name brand products and had to settle with things like Great Value. Now that I'm on my own and have had the chance to buy the more expensive products, I can honestly say that there really isn't a difference between them taste wise. Price wise is a whole different story. No need to spend the extra buck for an item like Tea, when you can get it cheap for the same taste and quality. I love Great value products, especially the Iced Tea. I'm a big tea drinker both hot and cold. It's awesome.
