252 Tasting Notes
Wow I used to think that herbals are pretty much herbals but boy was I wrong. This one is not as sweet and honey like than the other chamomile tea I have on hand. Not that it is bitter or anything is wrong with it, just that it lacks the natural honey flavor notes that I fell in love with another brand.
Its been a while since I’ve had Chamomile tea so it is really hard to judge how it compares to others. What stood out to me with Bigelow Cozy Chamomile the most is the sweetness of the floral notes that come off as tasting a bit like honey to me. So if you like Chamomile with honey this could be worth trying if you want to try reducing your sugar intake as you might find that it does not need honey. Overall a good tea but quite honestly if it wasn’t the need for getting to bed at a decent time and the fact that Chamomile is a natural sleep aid I would not be going out of the way to drink it, but this is good enough to be a semi regular evening tea for me.
I’ve never had Champgane before so it is hard for me to fully evaluate the wine aspect of this tea. Overall it has a very light and delicate flavor where even the raspberry blends in well so it comes off more as light flavor notes and not overwhelmingly fruity.
Normally Assam is not a favorite tea of mine as it comes off as way too malty in a bitter way but this one is actually very good. The tea comes off as lighter for an Assam with a wonderful Cabernet aroma and taste that goes with it. Even if you don’t think you like Assam tea, if you enjoy Cabernet red wine then this is a tea that is really worth trying.
A fairly light and sweet tasting young sheng puerh, without any overwhelming bitterness or smoke. Overall a smooth taste and a light golden amber brew with only a little minor astringency. This is also a “high energy tea” that one could get “tea drunk” on with enough from how you start to feel it in time
