Pros: Affordable, convenient, not bad when piping hot.
Bigelow says this is black tea, but the chicory is prominent. It does have a decent but quite sharp caramel flavour when hot, but after this cools down, it’s a tosser. The caramel becomes quite chemical-tasting the cooler it gets. Served iced, this could probably be used as a torture device. Is it more humane than waterboarding? Not sure.
As always, I drank it black but I suspect some milk/sugar would improve this a good deal.
This was nice for a grab and go in the office. You know- when there’s a sad, lonely teabag at the bottom of the communal tea basket, and you just want something to drink before a meeting? Yup. This is it.
For the price, it’s not the worst tea I’ve ever had. I wouldn’t seek it out but it’s a decent sip whilst hot.
Flavors: Caramel, Chemical, Chicory
