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.
The first steep always has a pleasant bite, and dark liquor. I enjoy a cup or two of this in the afternoon, when I could use a bit more pick up than my sencha offers. I’ve never felt it needs milk, although I would often add milk to breakfast blends that somewhat stronger.
This came as a free sample in one of my other boxes of Bigelow (a good way to market it, by the way, because this is not one I’d reach for otherwise). It smells like a standard English breakfast and tastes pretty standard too, although there’s a touch of maltiness and even a little bit of a baked bread taste. It’s not bad. I won’t be buying it but I will finish the last bag of it I have without any problems.
