Bold, dark, rich in taste, warming—this tea is perfect for its cheap cost. Not the classiest by any means, but working with a limited budget, Bigelow is the knight in shining armor.

Typically English, rich in flavor, and appropriate for any tea drinking occasion.
Invigorating in the best English tradition. Bigelow’s individual flavor-protecting envelopes ensure great taste and freshness. Indulge in the soothing ritual of tea. Sipped throughout the day, tea quenches, soothes, satisfies – and delivers healthful antioxidants. From the wonderful aroma that fills the air the moment it starts steeping, you’ll know that Bigelow tea is like no other.

Thought I’d try this one again because I want to conserve my 3 remaining earl grey bags until my adagio shipment gets to me on Wednesday.
This time I tried steeping at a lower temperature and adding some lemon juice and although it doesn’t make it much better, it does make it slightly more enjoyable, I’m happy I had this in my cupboard after all.
This is another case of me being easily satisfied when it comes to black tea, I suppose. :P I usually do not care for Bigelow teas (from what I remember, I really didn’t like their green tea). Anyway, this is a good basic black tea, in my opinion. It’s smooth, not bitter, and it has a strength that lends itself to drinking any time of the day. I hadn’t had this one in a couple months, and I’ve tried a lot of black teas in the meantime, so I figured I wouldn’t like it when I tried it today, but, I have to say, it’s a good everyday black tea. My usual routine in the past was to throw 2 bags in 16 oz of water right after it boils and wait 10 minutes…usually had it around 4 PM to give me a little caffeine to finish out the workday and head to the gym.
