From Bigelow

“Green tea is pretty simple. It’s green tea. What makes ours so special is that we use only hand-picked tea from high elevation gardens and then we gently process it, bringing out that natural flavor people have been enjoying for centuries. Our tea is not harsh, not too grassy but smooth and very delicate…easy to drink and enjoy the whole cup.”

Not bad. Not “good” either. Wouldn’t mind having this served to me in a restaurant if I were lost in conversation. But the conversation certainly would not be about the tea :)

Curiously, it generated a thin layer of foam in the cup, not sure what that is about. Got the packet somewhere a few years ago… does old tea foam? lol

I’ve been drinking this a lot at work lately because I’m trying not to run out of my Taiwanese green tea too quickly and it’s free at work. It’s very… generic. When it’s hot it’s okay, but after it cools it’s really apparent that it’s just not very flavorful. There’s kind of a teaishness to it, but it’s basically a lackluster and somewhat tea-scented water.

Wouldn’t recommend this unless you’re desperate for something warm (as I often am at work).

I’ve had a box of this at work for a while, but hadn’t really thought to make a note for it since it seems like your typical, grocery-store green tea. The tea is probably Japanese in origin as it has that flavor profile.

I hadn’t really noticed this tea until I was traveling through one of the wine-producing regions here in California. I wasn’t expecting much in the way of tea, but every single restaurant, cafe, and hotel in town seemed to only be serving this kind of tea, so I couldn’t avoid it. A tea monopoly in wine country might be a dubious distinction, but it was better than I expected (granted, I was expecting something fairly bad). It’s quite smooth and and mild, not very fussy, and not easily made bitter or astringent even with neglect, which I’m grateful for since I often make a cup of this in the busy after-lunch hours.

So I spent all day yesterday struggling through a 24-hour stomach bug, unable to keep anything down. And although I felt better when I woke up this morning, I needed a simple tea to drink, just incase I still had the bug. As it turns out, this is the only unflavoured tea in the house, so I went for it.
Not bad, safe simple taste that satisfied my need for tea without turning my stomach.
Might need like 6 more glasses to get me through the next 7 hours of studying for my finals. Although, I think in a little bit I’ll try to drink savor tea. Broth is good for an upset stomach, right?

This is my airplane tea and by that I don’t mean it’s bad. Not all airplane food or drinks are bad! Anyway, for some reason I only tend to drink this when I am working (I’m a flight attendant). It’s a good tea for any time of the day. I only bring tea bags with me because bringing loose leaf is too much work. (Plus I have lots of other stuff). For the steep time I usually end up pulling it out around a minute and add half hot water/half lukewarm water.

It’s ok. You do have to watch how hot your water is and how long you steep as it can develop a bitter aftertaste if you don’t. It’s not near as bitter as others I have tried but not near as good as a good green tea sencha.

I began drinking this for the health benefits. I like green tea if I am nervous or feeling under the weather

When I’m sick and have a stuff nose and the like, I like to use this tea because the flavor is mellow and not bitter.

However, it’s not the miracle bagged tea you may have been dreaming of.
