Bold, dark, rich in taste, warming—this tea is perfect for its cheap cost. Not the classiest by any means, but working with a limited budget, Bigelow is the knight in shining armor.

Thought I’d try this one again because I want to conserve my 3 remaining earl grey bags until my adagio shipment gets to me on Wednesday.
This time I tried steeping at a lower temperature and adding some lemon juice and although it doesn’t make it much better, it does make it slightly more enjoyable, I’m happy I had this in my cupboard after all.
Ordered a black tea at Dean’s Cafe in Pleasanton, CA, and this is what I was offered.
Pretty good black tea. A little bit smoother and more subtle than Bigelow’s English Breakfast, but in the same realm taste wise.
I’m not sure how I have gone this long without ever trying this standard, but I do like it. Might be a good basic old school staple to keep around.
