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.
