23 Tasting Notes
I love this. I’m in love with this tea. It was a large sum of 50 dollars but worth it. The mix of all the fruits make it distinguishably fruity but not like any fruit in particular, it has its own personality. The dry scent is also marvelous. This tea makes me want to lay back into a hammock. I think the tartness is what saves this tea from being overly fruity. It is splendid and everyone should try it. It is great when hot, and don’t make a small portion like I did because you will really want more!
Just was grocery shopping and saw this assortment pack of Bigelow Tea. I don’t really like Bigelow but it was between that and Tazo which I’ve never been a fan of. Bigelow is what I used to always drink when I didn’t know any better, so it’s also rather familiar to me. Anyway I got it and decided to try Pomegranate Pizzaz first, mostly because of its name. It doesn’t do much for me, it tastes almost exactly like other berry teas I have tried by Bigelow. It doesn’t stand out to me, but it’s good, it doesn’t taste bad. I don’t know why but for some reason with most berry teas I feel like I’m drinking hot juice. It just doesn’t feel like tea. The aroma is fantastic and layered, but the flavor contradicts the smell. It tastes just like berries, not even distinctly like pomegranate. I guess if you like berry teas try this, but I would much rather be drinking Chamomile, Peppermint, Earl Grey or English Afternoon right now.
This tea is so beautiful. First of all, I didn’t even need to use a drain. Then as it was cooling off, it gave off this flowery and subtle aroma, and the color is lovely. A warm purply fuchsia. Every sip I take is full of the scent and the color and alas, the taste. It’s sweet and tart. I am happy that I have this new tea. It’s best when it’s hot, and you can steep it for as long as you want because it doesn’t get bitter. Definitely try this! I am increasingly inspired with each sip, this tea is just positive.
I am drinking this again, and it doesn’t please me as much as the first time. I think I may have overrated this, I think I was in a positive mood or something? It’s hard to rate tea because love tea so much and I often find every tea amazing. I think a good tea is one that is strong but subtle with unique flavors. I like a tea that tastes like tea, if that makes sense. I love really herbal-earthy teas, and I don’t have many in my cupboard, because I am a little child and my parents buy me fruity teas, so I think I have accustomed to them. But sipping this right now, I realize that this is not what I desire, I have just gotten used to this blandness! Sure it’s sweet, and nice by all means, but it does not give me the same feeling a good tea should give. I know I sound like a huge hippie tea drinker right now, but I think most of you will understand. It kind of feels like I’m drinking hot cranberry juice. So there’s my rant, and I decided I am going to go tea shopping.
