drank I Love Lemon by Bigelow
140 tasting notes

So I’m stuck working at home today b/c of the winter storm blowing thru my area. . . and I forgot all of my good tea at work! The sadness and tears!! Plus, I’m stuck working from home with a moody 5 year old and a crazy 14 mo old. . . Ugh!

So this one is ok. It’ll get me thru the morning. Nothing fantastic. Just eh. . . .It works when you are in a pinch.

I would imagine in such close proximity to Joy’s Lemon Zest, bagged tea never had a shot at satiation.

Nichole

Oh, it doesn’t! I’m such a tea snob :)

I feel for you with the kids! I went into work for a few hours but came home and brought some with me to do at home. Not sure WHAT I was thinking…I cant possibly to any work with my two (3 year old and 15 month old!!) And we heading into a second ice storm this evening AAAHHHHH!!!!!!

Bigelow Tea

Glad to hear you still had some Bigelow Tea at home. Don’t forget to stock up because it appears we are having more storms :(

Huge fan of the office so of course I had to try. . .This one is different. . .I have a feeling its better iced. Its a very tart tea with the ‘berry blast’ & raspberry patch. They completely overwhelm the lemongrass. There is on a hint of it. Prolly not one I’d get again. Wish you could buy the custom blends off of Adagio in smaller portions. Oh well. I’ll save it for the summertime and ice it.

Preparation
Boiling 8 min or more

Dutifully noted! I, too, wish we could buy sample sizes of custom blends, but Adagio seems to want the extra dollas.

I don’t own this tea myself; I gifted it to my boyfriend, who loved it for thematic and decaf purposes. I had some too, though, and I thought it mighty zippy. I did indeed have a reason for the lack of lemongrass, and that reason was, simply, well, I don’t really like lemongrass. Fun fact! :P (When overpresent, I feel it evokes too much grass and not enough lemon.) I do like a hint of lemon, though, so go figure. Perhaps I shall up the percentage!

Summer can’t come fast enough, man, although we could all bust out ye olde iced-tea makers in the thick of winter. Seasonal teavolution!

Doing my tea happy dance right now. Love this one. Getting funny looks from my co-workers. . But I think I get those anyway. Almost end of the work day! Yeah!

Batrachoid

My dance has a matching song. The crazy tea man pidgeon hole is a little more comfortable here I guess. I’d have expected Comcast would be kinder than a shipping yard. XD

Nichole

HAHA they are! But they still say I’m crazy!

YUMMM!!!! Delish! Tho I’m tasting more of a black tea than the strawberries and other goodness that I should be. Need to re-adjust my Trinitea on this one I think. But yummers!!! Perfect for that first morning cup at the office!

KeenTeaThyme

I ordered this and am waiting patiently for it. It sounds sooooo good! My mouth is watering…

Nichole

Its sooo worth the wait!

Kristen

I love this one and the Strawberry Pie honeybush from 52teas/mysweet honeybush!!!

QueenOfTarts

I really want this tea. I’ve heard good things about it!

Nichole

I’ll include some in your pkg that I’m sending out tomorrow. :)

Um yeah, this one isn’t to use a really bad cliche here- “my cup o tea”. The smell alone has me crinckling my nose. Very very earthy smelling. I have a feeling that I’ll be sending this one to a friend later today. . . .
