drank Green Tea with Mint by Bigelow
44 tasting notes

I wasn’t thoroughly impressed with this tea. To be fair, I may not have steeped it long enough or the water may not have even hot enough, but I found the taste to be fairly weak. I caught hints of green tea but practically nothing of mint, save for a slight aftertaste.

This was my go-to during my pregnancy when queasiness threatened to get the better of me. It is great tummy-soother with a balanced blend of lemon and ginger (the ginger offers just the right amount of heat). I often add a little honey for an evening treat.

drank S'mores by Della Terra Teas

Unfortunately for me, Della Terra is (apparently) no longer in business as this is one of my favorite teas. It offers just a slight sweetness blended with black tea. The scent is delightful and gives you that just-in-from-the-campfire-with-an-ooey-gooey-smore feeling.

A perennial favorite in our home. Even my husband requests this tea now and again! It’s always a smooth, comforting drink, particularly in the evening when you want something warming but without the jolt of a full-bodied tea.

On par with Constant Comment for the Christmassy memories it evokes! Great orange flavor!

They are very, very similar, aren’t they? I have never had a bad Bigelow tea—maybe some varieties I didn’t care for because of flavor preferences, but you can always count on a decent bag of tea.

drank Chocolate Chai by Bigelow

The chocolate and chai flavors in this tea just don’t mesh as well as I’d hoped. There isn’t much depth to either flavor, though the chocolate is a little more prominent in this tea. However, the chocolate isn’t particularly good. I have to add more honey or sugar and milk to a cup of this tea than I do to other Bigelow chai teas. This is the only chai from Bigelow that has disappointed me.

drank Chamomile by Celestial Seasonings

A nice, mellow Chamomile. It’s not the best I’ve ever tasted, but it’s not the worst! This one has been in my cupboard for awhile, so perhaps getting a new package of this flavor would improve my perception of this tea. I need to let this one steep longer than other Chamomiles, but the longer steep does so much for the flavor.

Chamomile doesn’t vary much in personality, no matter its age or brand. I guess that’s a good quality.

drank Salted Caramel by Bigelow

I LOVE this tea! For an inexpensive cup that really packs a flavor punch, please try this one! The caramel notes and a very slight saltiness come through beautifully. I wasn’t sure I’d like this one, but it intrigued me and it was in my “stocking stuffer for myself” budget, so I thought I’d give it a try and I’m glad I did!

gmathis

Yup. Thumbs up here, too, especially for a cheapster.

A fantastic pumpkin spice tea! I really love the flavor. I may let mine steep a little longer than some but I like the flavor bold (I do add a splash of milk and some honey to make it more like a slice of pie in a cup). I didn’t find that a 6-minute steep soured the flavor at all.

A simple green tea. Nothing fancy about this one, but it does brew up nicely when you want a quick cuppa green. I also thought the cost was very reasonable.
