12 Tasting Notes
Being sick these past two weeks, the Bigelow Cozy Chamomile in K-cup form (rather than tea bags) has been great for keeping my stomach and lungs settled down. I have other chamomiles that I like, but I’ll get back to those once I finish the box of Cozy Chamomile K-cups that my hubby picked up for me.
Although I like the peach flavor of this green tea, I found this tea to have too much of a grassy taste.
I’ve found this to be a solid darjeeling tea, even as a bagged tea. I turn to this tea when I’m looking for a pick-me-up during a rough day.
Nice black currant flavor, didn’t really need to add any sweetner to it.
As much as I would love a pear tea, I’ve found the vanilla in this tea to be overpowering, masking much of the pear tea. I tasted only a slight hint of pear. I will continue my quest for a pear tea with a stronger pear taste.
A great balance of the flavors – not too sweet, not too vanilla-y… I love the sweet vanilla aroma. Whether it’s a stressful day or I’m just trying to recover from asthma issues, I’ve found this tea to be soothing and a perfect way to settle down
Rating this as an average between the bags (bleh) and the K-cups for my Keurig machine (tolerable).
The bagged version of this didn’t taste like anything special to me – just a typical light flavored green tea. We had this in our kitchen, but most of us tea drinkers have decided it isn’t for us.
The K-cup version seemed to have a stronger “green” taste to it, which was acceptable enough for me to drink but I don’t plan on ordering another set of Bigelow Green Tea K-cups again.
My first Irish Breakfast tasting was a Twinings Irish Breakfast tea, and it was delicious. All I needed to add was a touch of sugar or honey, and that was fine enough for me. I find this to be a great way to bounce back from a rough morning.
My cousin gave us a sample of this for Christmas one year, as part of a “let’s get together for tea” gift, and it’s been a winter favorite of mine. I like it as a drink to warm up with after a morning of shoveling snow or being out in the cold. Nice mix of spices, not overly spicy but not weak either. Definitely not a strong black tea, more of a mellow black tea.
