A review of Orange & Spice (Herb) Tea by Bigelow

Date: 09/21/2012
Company: Bigelow
Tea Name: Orange & Spice Herb Tea
Tea Type/Varietal: Tisane
Region:
Steeping Vessel/Amt. Leaf: Cup/ tea bag
Plucking Season:
Liquor Color: reddish orange
Leaf Characteristics:

  1. Steepings 2 good steeps

1st Steeping:
Water temperature: 190 Fahrenheit
Time: 5 minutes

Note: I have been sampling teas from my in-laws cup board not from lacking having my own teas but wanting something more seasonal this time of year. So today it is Bigelow tea once again, but only this time it is Orange and spice and everything nice as stated on the tea bag.

I can taste the orange peel medley with hibiscus, and the roasted chicory makes for the roasted scent that is in the tea cup, making it malty in taste as well.

2nd Steeping:
Water temperature: 190 Fahrenheit
Time: 3 minutes

Note: Tea’s color is lighter and smell just as wonderful and with the spices hitting one’s nostrils it is definitely a good idea to have this tea nicely hot and I did not feel the need to add anything else.

Tea is sweetly and naturally spicy with hints of hibiscus, rose hips and orange peel which is most prevalent. This is a good autumn tea to have and enjoy while ridding oneself of cold drafty feeling.

Preparation
190 °F / 87 °C 5 min, 0 sec

Bio

I enjoy a lovely cup of tea most days,and I like sharing my tea experiences with the world. I have been doing this for most of two years now.

I am at that thresh hold, unsure of how to proceed and why. My blog page is there for viewing and I am thankful for the experience as I have been allowed. Thank you everyone, sorry to have failed by not writing a tea book. I simply could not do it. I simply could not.
