8 Tasting Notes

Cinnamon is one of my favourite flavors, so I love this tea. The apple comes through more as background sweetness than as actual apple flavor, which to my tastebuds balances the cinnamon nicely. I usually let this steep for at least five minutes, or it’s too bland for me. I’ve not noticed any bitterness, as noted below.

The first tea I remember drinking was Constant Comment, but I hadn’t been able to have it in years as black tea often gives me headaches. Finding that they now make a green version had me through the moon before I even tried it! So I’ll admit that my rating is as much for the nostalgia as anything else, but I also truly think this is a very pleasant cup of tea. Love the spiciness. Just don’t let it steep forever, as it gets as astringent as any green.

Bigelow Tea

So glad you can return to drinking Constant Comment green tea! Enjoy!!

Sometimes it takes me several cups before I decide how I really feel about a tea, but this one hit me right from the first sip. Very clean green flavor.

Other than the Earl Grayer, this is the only of RoT’s flavored green teas that I can drink. While it’s nice enough, and the honey flavor pleasant, it isn’t something I bother to keep at home; just my go-to cup at Panera. It does hold up fairly well to a long steep, but some bitterness doesn’t bother me.

A nice green tea with only some of matcha’s fullness. Given how expensive matcha can be, though, I’ll take it!

I love sour cherries but don’t much care for the sweet, and so was worried that this tea would be too sweet. But the intense cherry flavor strikes a nice balance, and it’s wonderful iced.

Like most Earl Greys, I have to be careful not to let this steep too long or the bergamot gets overwhelming for my taste buds. It’s a good wake-me-up cup, however, and a necessity in my tea stash at work.

Hands down the best green tea I’ve had. Light and grassy and not at all bitter (as long as it gets only a quick steep, that is). I’m definitely partial to Japanese greens, but suspect this would be well liked by anyone who enjoys green tea in general.
