Very enjoyable cup of tea. It’s always fun raiding friends tea cabinets. You never know what you’ll discover.
A pungent green tea, but the jasmine twist is lacking. I can still taste the jasmine, but it’s over-powered by the green tea.
However, I enjoy green tea, and when it’s strong I like it best. So, I really like this tea despite its flaws. There could be a better balance between the ingredients, but for a bagged tea it’s still surprisingly good.
As for the scent, the aroma is sharp. I can smell the green tea and the jasmine, but the jasmine doesn’t have a light, flowery scent. The aroma’s much like the taste.
I’ve had smooth, wonderful, loose jasmine green tea before. In those teas, the jasmine taste seemed distinct from the green tea. It was like a layer cake in tea form, with jasmine as the icing and green tea as the cake. This tea doesn’t reach those echelons. But for a nice cup of green tea which will satisfy, Bigelow’s Jasmine Green works.
There are two things that experimentation has taught me about this tea:
1) it is best served with milk (perhaps some sort of sweetener, but definitely milk) as directed.
2) it is also best served in as big a mug as possible.
I’m not sure why this is, especially the second one. But… it just seems the most fitting to drink this mug out of a large mug. The size and feel just… fit the taste.
The taste itself is rich, just a little sweet, and with a strong caramel flavour that hits right as you sip. The milk adds a creaminess to it, which makes the mouth feel match the flavour quite well. Are there ways that this blend could be improved? Probably. But it’s a nice, robust, strong-flavoured tea and I love it.
Mmmmmmm mmmmmmmm mmmmmmm! I got this one when I visited my dad in Huntington Beach. I’ve had a few times now but yesterday I steeping it in warm milk for work and oh man! This is great!!!!! It’s super creamy and naturally sweet! The spices are all there. This does have a hint of white chocolate flavor. This is also good as a latte but this is definitely my preferred preparation. All frothy and steamy and a dash of cinnamon on top, creamy goodness! Deeee liccccc ousssss!
I first got hooked on this tea when I was visiting a friend in the USA, and it was one of the more welcome decisions at her local 7-11 (which she frequented).
I’m drinking it clear right now, though often I will add milk. Admittedly, I feel like it’s calling out for some right now. Having brewed for a minute longer than recommended, it does seem to have a slight bit of bitterness to it, though I still consider this a short steep for a black tea. The raspberry is a nice touch, though it does blend into the bitterness a bit — it lingers after the tea taste disappears though, a mild but pleasant aftertaste.
Overall, it’s a mild flavour, but with a decently strong base. A good tea, and one I’ll never mind having a cup of, but not a great go-to #1 choice either.
I finally have a new tea to review!
I got this for the office, AKA teabagtown. My coworker had just heated up a bowl of what must have been musty feet and trash from a seafood restaurant. I dropped this teabag into the cup and the most wonderful smell came out, saving the day. It smells like butter toffee.
The black tea base is nothing exceptional, but the flavoring is great (but mild). Not very artificial and really helped along by that sweet buttery smell, like cookies in the oven. I’m glad this was on supersale at my last grocery run because it is so much better than expected.
Its very malty a bitter. Maybe i over steep it =(
I always reach for this tea when i have a sore throat ill add a couple teaspoon of honey and it always seems to work for me. So i do enjoy it, and i like the taste.
It’s very juicy like a tangy-sweet flavor. I do enjoy over iced but i can’t stand it hot.
It’s very juicy. The only way i drink this fruity tea is ice, and i love it.
I had a cup of this tea earlier today. I added some sugar This is a good tasting medium strength spearmint taste with alittle bit of good black tea.
I have been having bad toothache and ear ache lately that has really been hurting and stressing me out and not helping the panic attacks and anxiety I deal with. I am going to get a tooth pulled tomarrow which is stressful to me to.
This tea is pretty straightforward. Chamomile and mint with hibiscus. No surprises, not complex or difficult to make. It’s a perfectly agreeable blend. I drink it sometimes to cure occasional restlessness, or if I just want a nice after-dinner cuppa.
I’ve been looking for Eggnogg’n for over a month, and found one lonely, crushed box on the shelf at the store last night! Into my cart it went. This morning I was very excited to try it, but had low expectations because I tend to find fancy holiday teas like this disappointing. I’ve tried Pumpkin Spice and Apple Cider from Bigelow in the past, hated Pumpkin Spice and wasn’t fond of Apple Cider. Haven’t especially cared for any of the holiday teas from Celestial Seasonings, either. My love of tea and of holidays has made me forge on, however, and the good reviews for this tea (plus the odd flavor description- eggnog tea?) interested me.
On to the tea itself. The first thing I did when I tore the top off the tea bag’s wrapper was take a deep whiff. Whoa! This stuff smells strong! And not really in a good way. This spooked me a bit. Luckily, after letting the tea steep for 4 minutes (per the recommendation on the box), the tea itself smelled good. REALLY good. I used to occasionally make spiced oat pancakes and top them with a thin maple-vanilla cream cheese icing. The tea smells like that! I took a tiny taste and it tasted good! Even better when I added a bit of sweetener, a spash of milk, and let it cool down a little. I’m not completely sure this tastes like eggnog, which is fine with me because eggnog skeeves me out after more than a sip or two. What I do taste is cinnamon, vanilla, maple, nutmeg, and a little bit of creamy tang (like cream cheese frosting). The flavors are all extremely well balanced. It’s a very flavorful tea, but nothing is overwhelming. I LOVE cinnamon in baking and cooking, but usually think cinnamon in tea tastes different and is too strong. Not in this tea! This one gets 2 thumbs up from me and I really look forward to drinking it throughout the rest of the winter. Hopefully I can find another box, because it will be needed.
I always keep a box of this Earl Gray in the cupboard. It is the only Bigelow tea I consistently purchase. nothing standout about this tea, gets the job done. i enjoy with a touch of cream.
Storm looming; seasonal grinchies kicking in about a month early—-NEED THIS!
Oversteeped and the green tea in here is pouting a little, but the eggnoggity goodness is still there.
I decided to try it to get myself all in the winter/ holiday spirit. I will admit, my other peppermint tea by covet garden may be pushed aside for a bit. It’s really “cool” , but delicious. I had it with oolong tea mixed together, but nonetheless it is amazing.
Much better than Celestial Seasonings Sweet Harvest Pumpkin!
This has a much richer pumpkin flavor, whereas the CS pumpkin
flavoring is much more artificial. This is warm cinnamon and nutmeg
Pumpkin pie in your cup…truly YUM!
This stuff is pretty good – the individual packaging makes the tea fresh, the taste is delicious. I’d recommend this one!
I think the hibiscus makes this a bit tart, something about it is a bit off…
By itself, I do not care for it, but steep it in some hot apple cider and it is super nice.
This tea is hands down one of my favorites. The mint is not overpowering to the senses, and it does not have a bitter note to it like other teas. I drink it without any milk or sweeteners, but I’m sure it would be just as excellent with a touch of honey. It is the kind of tea that can be consumed at any point during the day, not just before bed! I’d highly recommend giving it a try.
Not a bad cup at all,especially when it is FREE…ahhhh….relaxing
The “life too crazy for much but just-tea” continues; this is becoming an afternoon go-to at work. Not too bergamotty, pleasant to clutch and warm the hands on; just right for a calm-down sip here and there.
