From Bigelow

Typically English, rich in flavor, and appropriate for any tea drinking occasion.

For this special recipe we use only hand-picked tea leaves from higher up in the mountains where the best teas are grown. These mountain grown teas give you a full bodied, yet smooth cup, making English Teatime the perfect pick-me-up tea any time of day.

Taste Profile: Bold bright brew
Aroma: Sweet malty aroma
Liquor: Rich amber with coppery tones
Recommended Temperature: 208 degrees F

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.

I like this tea. Steeped for only 3 minutes, because the package specifies 1-2 minutes. Anyway, great color and great earthiness.

Revisited this tea for the first time in forever while on vacation. You know, Bigelow is just good and consistent. I really enjoyed my tea these past few mornings.

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.

You can always count on this tea to be dependable for a traditional brew…Although sometimes I wish it had some originality.

I just got this last evening and I have to say that although it’s not as good as Tetley, it’s still rather nice. A smooth and strong blend, perfect for morning. The Assam is very apparent in this tea. I recommend it if you’ve no Tetley around.

Bitter when super hot, as it cools it tastes fruity and floral. I get a peach note, weirdly. It’ll do for a work tea.

Work tea is brilliant! I am finally getting to try/sip down the bagged teas that I have. When I’m at home, I’d really rather have the loose leaf, but at work the tidiness of the bagged or sacheted teas is perfect. And I’m drinking down teas I’m not super impressed/in love with, which is fabulous.
I finished this one this morning, while working on all the things that accumulate over the weekend. Its decent enough, but not a particularly exciting black tea. This is excellent for mornings when you have a lot to do!
But I won’t be getting any more back in, and it is a sipdown!

Soft and mellow, with a slightly bitter aftertaste. …I am struggling so much to find interesting things to say about this tea’s flavor, but it’s so standard and benign that it’s impossible….O_o.

So, uh, this is fine! Probably a fine daily black if that’s your…cup of tea. I think I’d suggest comparing it with the Twinings English Breakfast, though, which somehow seemed more flavorful and interesting.
