A review of Plantation Mint Tea by Bigelow Tea

Company: Bigelow Tea
Tea Name: Plantation Mint
Tea Type/Varietal: black
Steeping Vessel/Amt. Leaf: cup / leaf
Liquor Color: light brown
Leaf Characteristics:


1st Steeping:
Water temperature: 190 Fahrenheit
Time: 3 minutes

I had some loose leaf mint tea and decided to have this plantation mint tea in tea bag just to see how it compares…or to continue with the mint thing going on.

With one tea bag in my cup I add the boiled water to the cup and leave it to steep for a few minutes. Tea’s color is light brown and tea’s aroma that of mint.

I sip and sip the tea with the mint flavoring hitting all the right spots. It is not overly toothpaste like. It a nice cup of tea and I am not surprised since Bigelow teas are a hit with me.

So here is to another wonderful cup of tea from the folks at Bigelow Tea.

190 °F / 87 °C 3 min, 0 sec

I like to drink tea less so than when I was aptly reviewing teas. I find that I like less and less of things as I age. I am a somber spirit who prays daily to not be at all. Thank you Steepster for all that you do to enrich tea drinkers.
