A review of French Vanilla Tea by Bigelow Tea

Date: 12/27/2012
Company: Bigelow Tea
Tea Name: French Vanilla
Tea Type/Varietal: Black
Steeping Vessel/Amt. Leaf: Cup/ tea bag
Plucking Season:
Liquor Color: dark amber
Leaf Characteristics: tea bag smells of vanilla

  1. Steepings

1st Steeping:
Water temperature: 190 Fahrenheit
Time: 4 minutes

Note: I am having this tea as an afternoon cup of tea. It is part of my in-laws stock of tea, they seem to favor this Bigelow brand for the pricing 2 for $5.00.

Anyhow, I take one tea bag and put this in my cup and I add the boiling water into the cup leaving it to steep for four minutes. When I retrieve the tea, the aroma is that of vanilla, not over powering but nicely done. The tea’s color is dark amber, not bright.

When I take sip after sip of this tea it is always the vanilla essence and the smooth, creamy taste. I came in and wanted a cup of tea and I reached for this Vanilla Tea and it is quite nice.

190 °F / 87 °C 4 min, 0 sec

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.
Steepster is offering: Steepster Select and together we’ll explore the world’s most interesting teas; with one free month and the resuming price of $24.95 for the remainder and one is free to cancel at anytime. I have no income and I live on my husband income; so would this be un-wise to do knowing where my life is at right now?
It is something to consider and thank you for the invite. Thank you for Steepster.com’s community of tea drinkers, tasters, reviewers, aficionados and all.
