drank I Love Lemon by Bigelow
267 tasting notes

Every so often it’s fine to slum it, tea wise. And quite frankly I consider anything I can buy at a mainstream grocery store chain (not including health food chains here) to be slumming it ;) There, I said it. This doesn’t mean I don’t like wallowing down here sometimes though. And the dining hall at my language study program stocks only Bigelow teas. Free tea? Yes, please.

I have been pleasantly surprised by this one. I have tasted some incredibly bad lemon teas in the past, but this one is sorta sweet and mild. It actually reminds me somewhat of some ‘lemon cream’ blends I have tried. It doesn’t get too intense- and I left the tea bag in my travel mug, so if it was going to, it would have an hour ago. Maybe Bigelow shines the most when it comes to herb teas! It’s not as though I have a particularly sophisticated palette anyway.

Good after dinner or lunch, methinks.

Yay for slumming it! I prefer loose leaf, but sometimes a $2 box of tea at the store is just convenient and usually tasty.

Yeah, I’m such a tea junkie that I really can’t be much of a snob. Besides, I like gimmicky flavored teas so I don’t think the snobs would have me.

I have yet to find a lemon tisane that I like as much as this one, slumming or not!

I think my absolute favorite lemon tea is Special Teas’ Rooibos Lemon Chiffon, but that’s not a tisane. :) I want to try their Sweet Lemon with Lemon Peels.
