I can’t remember where this teabag came from, but I thought a no caffeine day was the right time to drink it.

Toasty, notes of squash, bok choy, vegetal, but not as vegetal and grassy as most bagged greens. The toasted flavour is really nice. It reminds me a lot of a genmaicha, but this is straight. As far as bagged greens go, this is the best I’ve had.

Flavors: Butternut Squash, Rice, Toasted, Vegetal

Preparation
190 °F / 87 °C 4 min, 30 sec 20 OZ / 580 ML

This Organic Earl Grey, from Bigelow’s Steep, is a workhorse Earl Grey. It does not delight, it does not astonish but it does, on very unpretentious terms, soothe. This modest goal, seemingly humble, is beyond the talents of most mainstream tea makers, and that Steep by Bigelow has achieved this inoffensive Earl Grey is commendable indeed.
Instead of the usual grim suspicions that yet another big tea maker has packeted and sold bags of twigs under the euphemistic advertisement of “tea,” this drink rests all fears due to its placid black tea blend which is accompanied by notes of lightly skimming bergamot.
This tea is best served on late afternoons when fuss and fanciness would only further irritate the soul.

Flavors: Bergamot

The tea bag smells strongly of spicy ginger, but the steeped liquid is balanced between ginger and lemon. I like that it is very flavourful and spicy.
