drank Darjeeling by Bigelow
1876 tasting notes

Classical music playing, Panera muffin, and Bigelow tea…I am back at Duke Medical to get my stitches out! I almost reached for the same tea I had last time, English Tea Time by Bigelow, but I decided to be a little more adventurous. Yesterday’s review warned me away from I Love Lemon, so I went with Darjeeling.

This is pretty good! It is nice and earthy like the last Darjeeling I had, but not quite as earthy. It is smooth, not bitter, not astringent. I think if I ever need to provide tea to masses and have it be something very forgiving of temperature, conditions, and steep times, Bigelow would be the way to go.

I’ve had this before too and it’s not bad. :)

I found it bitter, but had it in a restaurant and so water temp & steep time were off. It’s a good teabag Darjeeling though.

No sorry…….the tea I mentioned above was Twinings Tea. This tea is more mild & still quite flavorful.

The Twinings teas I have tried are pretty good, too. Nt sure how much abuse they can take, but I really like their Lady Grey.

Bio

I am a music teacher and homeschooling mom who started drinking loose leaf tea about five years ago! My daughters and I have tea every day, and we are frequently joined by my students or friends for “tea time.” Now my hubby joins us, too. His tastes have evolved from Tetley with milk and sugar to mostly unadorned greens and oolongs.

We have learned so much history, geography, and culture in this journey.

My avatar is a mole in a teacup! Long story…
