From Bigelow

Typically English, rich in flavor, and appropriate for any tea drinking occasion.

For this special recipe we use only hand-picked tea leaves from higher up in the mountains where the best teas are grown. These mountain grown teas give you a full bodied, yet smooth cup, making English Teatime the perfect pick-me-up tea any time of day.

Taste Profile: Bold bright brew
Aroma: Sweet malty aroma
Liquor: Rich amber with coppery tones
Recommended Temperature: 208 degrees F

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.

I like this tea. Steeped for only 3 minutes, because the package specifies 1-2 minutes. Anyway, great color and great earthiness.

Revisited this tea for the first time in forever while on vacation. You know, Bigelow is just good and consistent. I really enjoyed my tea these past few mornings.

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.

You can always count on this tea to be dependable for a traditional brew…Although sometimes I wish it had some originality.

I just got this last evening and I have to say that although it’s not as good as Tetley, it’s still rather nice. A smooth and strong blend, perfect for morning. The Assam is very apparent in this tea. I recommend it if you’ve no Tetley around.

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.

Bitter when super hot, as it cools it tastes fruity and floral. I get a peach note, weirdly. It’ll do for a work tea.
