BACKLOG: Made this in my starbucks teapot yesterday as a got-most-of-the-stuff-moved-into-our-new-house-lets-relax-now treat. It was delicious albeit somewhat weak despite using two bags and not a full pot of water. I remember buying a big box of 4packs of this in 2013 to drink at work and enjoying it regularly. I think I just found the last 4 pack. Nothing distinctly remarkable but not bad.
Flavors: Earth, Vegetal
I really didn’t feel like do anything today except enjoy the sun and air, and start planning the garden. But I had a few things that I needed to pick up, and wanted to get to a garden center to get some ideas. So I needed something that would jolt me into action. In comes this tea. Yeah, it worked.
Smooth and tasty. Wish I had added milk to it, but I drank it sans additives. I think the caffeine is still circulating in my system because I feel like doing jumping jacks or running. Maybe this will be a productive day after all.
Thank you for the sample gmathis!
Eating breakfast at the restaurant in our hotel. They gave us a choice of tea bags and this one looked the best. I’ve had it before just never reviewed it. Bigelow has some good teas, not great mind you, just good. This tea is a good balance of flavors. Really doesn’t need anything added but a touch of honey or milk doesn’t hurt.
This earl grey tastes a little funky. I’m not sure if it’s the decaf or what, but there’s something off about it. Or maybe I’m coming down with a cold….great. I picked some of this up b/c I was missing my grandma and this was one of the teas she would give me when I asked for tea when I was little. Adding cream and sugar seemed to help it out a little bit, but not much. Boo.
I picked this one up on a whim the other day in the market. I like tisanes now and again and I realized I don’t have any. I wasn’t expecting anything stellar from a bagged tea. But I was happily very wrong. All I can taste and smell is blueberry and it is awesome. So flavorful and a perfect late afternoon/evening tea. In fact I had a coworker ask me if I had baked blueberry muffins when I made a cup this morning!
Flavors: Blueberry, Fruity, Pastries, Sweet
Thanks to Albertocanfly I get to try this tea I’ve been dying to try! Apparently it’s like in every store around the holiday season but the ones which I go into xD
no idea why…
It’s kinda weird-haha!
Wasn’t expecting too much because I’ve had an awful experience with Bigelow, their tea just tastes bad to me.
But this one surprised me!
The dry leaf smell did remind me of egg nog.
Couldn’t focus much on the steeping aroma because I got my order from DavidsTea and only 1/4th of it was right…so I was in a state of unbelief because the packing slip was right but they sent me a tea I didn’t even add to my cart ever. Ughh sometimes that company….
I think I’m the only one who has bad experiences with them ever, that’s what It feels like at least.
So I didn’t focus on the flavors too much because I was busy writing them an annoyed email.
This tea does remind me of egg nog, but I think that DTT Winter Nog reminds me of it more just because the cinnamon isn’t as over-powering. This one is good but not something I would buy. Super happy I got to try it though! And thank you, Albertocanfly for sending me more than one of those tea bags because hopefully next time I won’t have to be so distracted by having to email a company for screwing up the simplest of orders. xD But really, thank you, Albertocanfly! :D
Flavors: Cinnamon, Nutmeg
I’m pretty riding the fence any time I drink this tea. On the one hand it’s pretty decent for a bagged black tea. But on the other hand compared to some of the good loose leaf I’ve had it doesn’t come close.
Even if the taste doesn’t make you scream out for joy, the smell is quite nice. Definitely a scent that would be soothing and relaxing on a cold or stressful day.
I taste and smell the orange flavor for sure. It lingers as the aftertaste for quite awhile too. The spices are right there in the background when you take a sip.
Wouldn’t write home about this tea, but it’s a decent cheap tea bag.
Flavors: Orange Zest, Spices
I’ve sampled this from a package of Vanilla Chai by Bigelow and was intrigued by the scent of this tea. However, I felt I was hit with the strong aroma and taste of cloves. I am not a fan of cloves, although I did enjoy how unique the flavor was. I did sense hints of orange, and nothing else. I am now curious to taste older versions of this flavor after having read many reviews by loyal Bigelow tea drinkers having this for 50+ years. I was honored to have sampled Bigelow’s first and original tea flavors.
Flavors: Cloves, Orange
I was feeling lazy this morning about tea prep so I wanted something that looked like an easy steeper. Found this in my ever growing tea stash.
It’s the perfect tea for this chilly morn. Apple and spice notes spot on. I wish I had added a touch of sweetener, I think it would have popped a bit more, but as is, was still very tasty.
Thanks for the sample Gmathis!
A rather boring green tea. Quite weak, even for someone like me who prefers more mild flavours. This was the selection when I asked for a green tea when I was out for lunch today. Certainly non-offensive but doesn’t stand out from the rest of the pack at all. Nothing special and rather forgettable.
I was a volunteer at summer camp and didn’t pack tea for the week long of adults watching Lord of the Flies happen before their eyes.
However, this is one of the teas that Bigelow provides in their sampler pack that the camp provided so I drank it at lunch every day that week and found that the pomegranate in this provides a nice pink/purple color to the liquid that I enjoy watching spew out into the water. This isn’t a terrible tea if I was to compare mass quantity tea bags available at Walmart but overall it still is quantity over quality with this tea. My ability to drink this each day was proof that it doesn’t fail, but it just isn’t a tea that I’d choose if I had ‘other’ options around.
This is very bias and unfair review
Bigalow’s Chinese Oolong teabags were what got me into tea in the first place years ago. My only experiences with tea were very dark and bitter tasting black teas until I decided to try this weird sounding tea that had the name of someone from the show Dragonball I had watched as a child. I drank this tea for years until I found out that not all tea was chopped up leaf. Thanks to grocery stores carrying this tea my love for oolong had a way to flourish from teabags which is quite interesting to remind myself.
