Lemon Ginger Herbal Plus Probiotics from Bigelow Tea

Style: Wellness Tea / Medicinal Tea – Region: Blend

Jan. 29th, 2016

I found packs of these in the house we moved into. The ginger is definitely most notable in the aroma before it's brewed, but I still taste it in the drink. It's flavor is strong but not potent, and very blended. No individual flavor really stands out. It has a rather creamy feel.

I don't know how effective probioti...

As someone very into fruity teas, I love this one. It's noticeably tart in a solidly pleasant way. Great when I'm in the mood for a strong caffeine free tea. If you like tropical herbal teas, this one is worth a shot.

Not bad for bagged Earl Grey. I added half and half, which mixed well. The flavor was solid without being bitter. Others commented that it IS better, so maybe the half and half I added helped with that?

This is a green tea with various herbs and spices added. In my mind teas supposed to be medicinal taste cluttered. The flavor isn't bad (lightly of vanilla and sweetish herbs), but it isn't for me. I tried this one because it was sent as a free sample.

Nov. 24th, 2015

This tea wasn't the worst, but it wasn't really for me. The aroma was better than the flavor. It's possible I over-steeped it, as it went a bit bitter in a distinctively green tea fashion. Basically, I like the idea of this tea better than its execution.

As others have noted, clove and pepper come through in this tea. Cinnamon and other flavors are subtle. I added sugar and milk and really liked it. In short, as a bagged tea this one is pretty solid.

Meh. It's not a badly done tea, but it's not a flavor I'm often into. The orange and herbaceousness both come through. Not bad if that's a taste mixture that appeals to you, but orange isn't my favorite fruit to drink hot. Still, the cup has grown on me a bit while I've been drinking it.

Oct. 30th, 2015

I'm not big on genmaichas, but the light baked rice flavor in this one is comforting. It's nice when I'm in the mood for something savory, but not bitter. No spiciness or sweetness, the flavor is uncomplicated in a way that's nice sometimes.

I actually really like this tea. The ginger gives it just the right kick when you're craving something with a tart spiciness. This herbal tea is pretty solid, in my opinion.

This tea is a great idea, but the execution needs to be better. Not that much flavor infused even in the first cup, but what I could taste and small was delightful and Christmasy. I bet I'd love the loose leaf version, but the bag version just isn't as amazing as it could be. *sigh*

Overpriced, but quite tasty. I'm enjoying this more than I do many flavored white teas. I can detect the tea without a problem, in contrast to the previous reviewers who felt the fruitiness to be overpowering. It held up to a second steeping well, though dust collected at the bottom of the cup.

This herbal tea is pretty good. I detect a little bitterness, but the vanilla helps. It's a pretty smooth drink, and it made two decent cups. People who really like chamomile will likely enjoy this one.

Tart, sweet, and fruity, this is a solid tea in my book. Its flavor is robust, so it's definitely for when you want something intense. I like it as a peppy breakfast tea when I'm not in the mood for a chai or other flavored black tea. Unfortunately, the tea bag didn't hold up to a second steep at all.

Though I can taste the chocolate, it's cardamom that comes through as the strongest flavor. I like cardamom, but it may be too much for some people. Weird, since i don't see that spice listed. Still, the aroma is spicy and pleasant.

A solid pumpkin spice tea. It has a distinct creaminess that I alternately like and then feel is a bit much or slightly off. It works best with an extra amount of tea.

It'd get a better rating if it was more affordable, but it's worth trying.

Aug. 17th, 2015

Pretty good! I got this at a Starbucks and had them add sugar and cream (well, half and half). It worked really well together and provided a nice caffeine jolt. If let steep too long it develops not so much a bitterness as a sharpness, so I'd keep it to only a couple of minutes. The second cup was also solid, though a...

I really, really like this one. It's a great chai that works the chocolate flavoring just right. The cardamom is the most noticeable spice for the first couple cups, with the cinnamon showing up later. In both cases they were very smooth, not overwhelming or out of place.

This also works well whether you drink it pl...

Jul. 14th, 2015

Not bad, but a bit astringent (almost bitter) to my taste. It has a refreshing quality, too. This tea reminds me a lot of the teas I drank while living in Japan (though it's a Chinese tea).

Certainly worth giving a try. I always like the quality of Rishi teas.

Wow, well, either chamomile is growing on me, or I've finally learned how to brew it. This one has a very strong (but not bitter) flavor. I heated up the water for one minute in a microwave before adding the sachet, and (based on the reviews below) kept the steep time shorter than normal. Once it looked sufficiently go...

The smell of this tea is amazing, with a very strong almond vibe. The flavor picks up the black tea a bit too much for me, but I would imagine that big fans of black tea would find it well balanced. I don't detect a lot of vanilla, but it does seem to impart a sweetness.

In brief, it's great for what it is, but it'...

A nice green tea! It has a quality that is both vegetable and not-quite-baked. I'm not entirely sure how to describe this. It tastes similar to teas that I had while in Japan, and which I enjoyed very much there. It seems to have cause a slight tickle in my throat the way that some green teas can. I still need to figur...

A great herbal tea when you crave something tart. I love its strong fruitiness. The aroma has a floral accent as well. An excellent cup as far as I'm concerned. :-)

I had it iced from a coffee shop. Because it was cold I drank it very quickly. It was wonderfully refreshing.

The peach and ginger flavors in this tea are muted, but very smooth. I really like this one! A part of me wishes that the fruit and spice were stronger, but mostly I think this makes an excellent morning tea. The black tea is robust without being overpowering or bitter, and it holds up to multiple infusions well. Great...

Zesty! Not as complex or interesting as it could be, but quite nice. Then lemon and rooibos flavors go well together. Pricier than what I would like, but a nicely refreshing blend with a nice aroma.

I've had a hard time finding a chamomile that I like, but this one I LOVE. Smooth, aromatic, perfectly balanced, soothing, and easy to brew. Instead of bitter, it tastes almost sweet in a delicately lemony way. This is chamomile perfection. :-)
