1024 Tasting Notes
My mom bought me a sample box of Bigelow herbals when I visited my family back in May, and for the most part it’s sat untouched since then. I’m trying to drink more herbals at night, so I thought I’d give this one a try.
This is pretty nice. The orange flavor is sweet and fruity, and the cinnamon is strong, but it doesn’t overwhelm the tea. I’ll happily use the remainder of these tea bags.
I haven’t had this tea in a while, and I’m wondering why because it’s dang delicious. The vanilla and caramel flavors are comforting… like coming home to a clean house and a cozy fire. This is still one of the only decaf blacks that I enjoy. There’s no strange chemical aftertaste that is often found in decaf teas.
Just good black tea… and vanilla… and caramel… yum.
I bought this at the Coffee and Tea Festival with the idea of it being one of the teas at my holiday party. I set it aside, but I wanted to drink Christmas-y type teas today, so I brewed a cup.
I should say that I’ve never had fig pudding. I have no idea what it taste like. This tea, however, taste like cherry cream. I do get more of a fig note every now and then, but mostly I get fruity cherry and sweet cream. It’s not what I was expecting, but it is really good!
Tea of the morning. I’m not moving very fast today, and I’m more than happy to sit here reading tasting notes while sipping on this lovely. The beginning of the sip is sweet and malty with the sweetness having a nice fruitiness to it. I also taste a deep cocoa note as well as honey. The smokey flavor comes at the end of the sip. So good and a really nice way to enjoy a Friday morning.
Tea of the morning. This is always such a treat. The combination of flavors is so well done and just plain yummy! It’s lightly sweet and smooth at the beginning with notes of honey, bread, and creamy marshmallow while the dark chocolate and pine flavors linger at the end of the sip. Seriously tasty stuff.
This was my morning cup. This has a nice creamy egg nog flavor, and I like the amount of cinnamon that’s been added. It’s enough to give the tea a bit of brightness without overwhelming the tea. Usually I’m not a fan of black/green tea blends, but it works for this tea. I’ve never had a problem with bitterness or astringency. Really nice, and the fact that it’s a bagged tea makes it even better for those days when I’m not moving fast enough to make a cup from loose leaf.
I’m trying to get myself into a Thanksgiving state of mind by sipping on holiday-ish teas while working on my menu and shopping list. I added a teaspoon of honey and some cream to this tea, and I’m really liking the results. I get a definite pumpkin pie feel from this, and I like the amount of spice. There’s a good bit of cinnamon and ginger, but it is well balanced between the pumpkin flavor and the nuttiness of the rooibos.
I think I’ll be drinking quite a bit of this over the next few months. It’s totally enjoyable now, but I can’t see myself being excited about this once spring rolls around.
Having this again. Actually, this is my second time to have this today. I had this in my travel mug this morning and sipped while I visited with friends. This is a great travel mug tea. All of the flavors hold up well even when in the mug for hours. Now I have a nice ceramic mug of this tea and am happily sitting, sipping, and browsing Pinterest. I don’t even want to know the hours of time I have killed while looking at that site….
