A nice, desserty decaf tea. Best drunk very hot; as it cools, the artificial taste becomes more pronounced. I wouldn’t buy this regularly, but I’d be happy to see it as a sample again.

Bitter when super hot, as it cools it tastes fruity and floral. I get a peach note, weirdly. It’ll do for a work tea.

Had some of this tea tonight while trying to “use up” a few of my old teabags. After this awful experience, the rest of this is going straight in the trash. Did not like. Smelled revolting, tasted worse. I know there’s no real tea in this, but whatever there is, is not pleasant. It tastes like medicine. Only worse.

I’m pretty new to the Tea thing but so far this is my all time favorite. I can drink this without adding anything. Its flavorful yet mild and calming.

drank Pumpkin Spice by Bigelow
10 tasting notes

A coworker left this in the breakroom so I popped it in my mug to give it a taste. It’s not the kind of thing I’d normally grab but this week at work is pretty stressful so a silly flavored tea was appealing. I has a delicious smell (kind of like Chai and PSL) and I pick up on an orange flavor when drinking. It’s not as bad as I thought it’d be.

Flavors: Cinnamon, Clove, Orange, Pumpkin, Vanilla

Work tea is brilliant! I am finally getting to try/sip down the bagged teas that I have. When I’m at home, I’d really rather have the loose leaf, but at work the tidiness of the bagged or sacheted teas is perfect. And I’m drinking down teas I’m not super impressed/in love with, which is fabulous.
I finished this one this morning, while working on all the things that accumulate over the weekend. Its decent enough, but not a particularly exciting black tea. This is excellent for mornings when you have a lot to do!
But I won’t be getting any more back in, and it is a sipdown!

This is one of the bagged teas my beloved sister gave me in the gigantic tea grab bag she gave me for Christmas, and that I’ve brought for my work teas.
This is a very rich black tea, but not an especially complex one. I could drink it without paying a whole lot of attention to it, which is a good thing at the office.

Tea at the office is brilliant. I can actually try and sipdown the bagged teas which I never seem to get around to in my home life! Fab!
I’ve got to hand it to Bigelow, this was actually really pleasant. I’m not going to run out and buy a box, but I’ll gladly have a bag if it floats my way.
Its very juicy, which is pleasant on a cold morning!
Sipdown!

It was the first day of tea at my new job! I got permission to bring my own teas, so as not to drink the (rather boring) things that the office provides for clients. Plus I don’t want to drain the office of tea. I drink enough of the stuff that I’d rather keep it to my own stash, so as not to make my boss go out and get more.
But it left me in fuzz this morning, trying to figure out what to bring. I’d love to bring loose leaf, but I’m afraid that it might be too messy and hard to do. So bagged it is! I’ve still got some bags, that should be easy.
So I grabbed a little sack of bagged teas that my sister gave me as part of my Christmas present. I wasn’t sure when I’d get to them when she first gave me them, but now I’ll have them drunk in no time!
I started the day with this, which was much jucier than I expected it to be. It was very light and refreshing, rather to my surprise. Goes to show that a pleasant tea experience can be found just about anywhere.

drank Peppermint Bark by Bigelow
1645 tasting notes

O Ggmathis, why didn’t I remember your review before I brewed this one? On its own this is tasty but lacks a certain wow factor. Had I remembered her comments, I have a whole box of cacao nibs I could have added. Primarily, this is a light peppermint tea. It doesn’t beat you up with mint yet is obviously mint. A good balance in that respect. It is just the chocolate doesn’t reach that decadent level I crave. I added Splenda and it brightened the cup but didn’t really fix it. I may have to try this again with some Charlie Brown love added. Thanks ggmathis.

Dad – there was no infection and no clear idea what was going on. One of his nurses told him she laid awake all night trying to figure out what to do for him. She told his family doctor her idea, who agreed to let her try. They treated his leg as if it were a severe burn. He immediately began to respond. After just a couple days the leg has gone from black and blue to nice and pink. Still looks kind of gross but nothing like it was before she treated him. He is walking all over the hospital wing now and making plans to come home. Truly miraculous.

Yay for the good news.

How wonderful to have especially caring medical staff engaged in promoting his recovery! Hurray! Happy for you and yours.

Let me know if you want me to mail another bag :) I bought more. And thanks for sharing the good grandpa news! What an awesome nursing staff!

So where did those extra G’s come from. LOL I’m going to look when I go to the big city later this week and see if I can find this one but thanks.

drank I Love Lemon by Bigelow
371 tasting notes

Tried this one at work today. It wasn’t as bad as some other Bigelow blends I’ve tried, but I still wasn’t a fan. It’s very tart and slightly floral, thanks to the hibiscus (which also makes it a bright pink color). However, the lemon flavor itself isn’t the worst I’ve had; it’s fairly natural and not overly aggressive. I wouldn’t buy this one, but I’d drink it again if there weren’t any better options available.

Flavors: Hibiscus, Lemon

Preparation
205 °F / 96 °C 4 min, 0 sec 1 tsp 8 OZ / 236 ML

Awww. Sorry this wasn’t a hit for you. I spent a lot of time trying to find a lemon I liked better from a bunch of companies across the price spectrum and never found one I liked better.

rosebudmelissa

Stash’s Meyer Lemon is pretty good.

@ Morgana If there’s one thing I’ve learned on my journey with tea, it’s that tastes are super subjective! Time and again I’ve shared a tea I LOVED with a friend and found they didn’t care for it. This one wasn’t a hit for me, but glad you like it. :)

@ rosebudmelissa Thanks for the tip!

drank Eggnogg'n Tea by Bigelow

Yesterday morning started with gifts and an Eggnog tea showdown – this vs. Tea Guy’s Eggnog. This one, flavor wise, was the clear winner in my book. It tastes "eggs"actly like eggnog and with a bit of cream, is on point. However, the ingredients list only lists “Eggnog flavoring” for this tea – so in the spirit of tea blending, Tea Guys definitely wins but this the best Eggnog flavored tea I’ve had in this eggnog tea journey thus far.

Flavors: Cinnamon, Cream, Eggnog, Spices

Where did you get this?

taipwnsu

I picked it up from the grocery store (ShopRite) but you can get a bunch from their website and Amazon stocks it. I’m not sure how/if ordering and shipping to Canada would work though.

I FINALLY found this one at the grocery store today and ripped open a tea bag as soon as I got home. I ended up adding a bit of sugar (which I feel didn’t really make a difference) and some milk and it was really really good. I didn’t feel like it was like eggnog but I couldn’t put my thumb on what it was. I definitely tasted the sweet, vanilla-y flavors and a mild mix of cloves, cinnamon, and nutmeg but it also tasted a bit like cookies or cake. I’ll have to do a side by side comparison of this and Tea Guy’s Eggnog on Christmas :D

Flavors: Baked Bread, Cake, Cinnamon, Clove, Cookie, Eggnog, Nutmeg, Sweet, Vanilla

rosebudmelissa

Sounds yummy. I have mixed feelings about actual Eggnog, but this sounds really tasty.

Bought this tea for when I feel sick because it stands up well to honey. I don’t normally sweeten teas. Pretty much only when sick. Don’t want to waste good tea when I can’t appreciate the flavor profile.
I have a cold and possibily a tad bit of a sore throat.
Brewed 2 tea bags in 16 oz of water with organic honey. Smell lemon, lots of lemon. Tastes primarily of lemon. I only get a little ginger and honey.
I feel this tea does the job I bought it for. However, I wouldn’t drink it on its own. 75

Wow. The mint here definitely packs a wallop—a very strong, crisp, cooling mint flavor. No hint of the taste of black tea—it’s completely masked—not that that’s necessarily a bad thing. This will wake you up!

It is good hot and cold. I make a pitcher of it in the summer. I also use it as a hair rinse leaving a light and peachy fragrance that lasts.
