Had a sore throat today, all this AC at school dries it right out. Mixed a little honey in it. Soothing for the throat but not really lemony.

I woke up this morning with a bit of a sore throat so, I decided to make this tea. I filled my tea mug with water, popped it in the microwave for three minutes and promptly dunked in the teabag once the microwave stopped, adding in my usual teaspoon of sugar. The temperature of the tea was very soothing, but that has more to do with my microwave than the tea itself. The teas was soothing but I would have preferred more of a lemon flavor to it.
Hmm…I’m afraid my rating may not be fair. After sipping the tea black, I decided on a whim that a little sugar might bring out the lemon flavor. In fact, that lemony flavor was so subtle that the sugar merely masked it. This is what I get for fiddling with perfectly good black tea!
With sweetener, Lemon Lift is still rather good, but the lemon is masked and dampened so as to be barely perceptible. I think I would give this tea an even higher rating left on its own; I think one would be better off actually trying to appreciating the subtlety of the flavor rather than trying to enhance it artificially.
This tea delivers what it promised. And that is a black tea with hints of lemon and some unnamed spices. I’m normally more of a green tea sort of guy but on a whim decided to try this since they stock it free at work. I added half a tsp of sugar since with black I’m not a fan of straight up like I can with a good green. I have to say I’m rather impressed. Since they don’t have earl grey at work I may have to have this as my go to black [at work anyway]. As I sit here and type this it has a very pleasant aroma wafting up to my nose. Some people said it is very bland but I find it perfect. I do tend to prefer less strong tea though so shrug.
Overall a good bagged tea that delivers what it promises.

I can really smell the spices in the bag, but when steeped everything blends together wonderfully. Definitely not a tea to linger over, though, as the taste becomes more bitter and unbalanced as it cools.
I have to admit, I’ve never been a tea fan. Ever. Lately though, caffeine had been giving me the shakes, and I felt the need to switch to something gentler to get me going during the day. Luckily, my work stocks Bigelow teas in bulk. OMG. I’ve been addicted to this tea from the get go. I’m literally on my fourth cup today, and now that it’s Friday, I’ll have to go to the store and get some to tide me over this weekend. Flavor wise, the lemon and spice are a perfect blend. They balance each other out nicely, and I actually find myself ENJOYING the accompanying black tea flavor in their presence which is surprising, since I’ve never liked tea before. It’s highly inoffensive, highly enjoyable, and as the name implies “lifts” the energy level of the drinker. My rating is rather high, but I can’t really imagine finding a different variety I enjoy more at this point. It’s not broken, and I’m certainly not fixing it.
