About Novus Tea

Novus Tea is a brand of tea owned by Novus Tea Limited, LLC, which is owned by Bigelow Tea. Both Novus Tea and Bigelow Tea are headquartered in Fairfield, CT. Novus teas are sold directly to shoppers on Bigelow's website, and are also available in some coffee shops. However, unlike the Bigelow brand of tea, Novus tea is not available in retail stores.

Novus tea sells a small selection of packaged teas in sachets (pyramid teabags), including one decaffeinated tea and a few caffeine-free herbal teas.

Novus tea has a mixed record on sustainability. While their pyramid sachets allow the tea room to expand, the sachets are nylon and thus not biodegradable or compostable. Novus does sell a couple organic teas, and one fair-trade certified tea.

Picture of Classic Mint (Egyptian Mint Herb Tea)

I agree 100% with Alex. I had this at a restaurant - and it is a mid-to-strong peppermint without being too strong/sharp. Not a candy-cane tea - might even have spearmint in there too? Can't tell.

Nope. Just checked the Bigelow website - it's 100% peppermint, which, indded, you can grow yourself. Cheaply.

Apr. 2nd, 2017

Was offered NOVUS teas (by Bigeow) at a restaurant - comes in a silky sachet, wrapped in a sealed pouch. Very fresh tasting and deep, dark (much darker than other Darjeelings I have had) and steeped up quickly. I got 2 infusions from the bag in a large pot of water.

I am a Darjeeling drinker, so I was fine with ...

I have also never had Dragon Well Green Tea, but I have had several other Chinese Green teas so when I was given this tea by a friend, I just had to try it. I definitely enjoyed this tea, but I found that it seemed to lack a robustness that I personally enjoy. I think this is a tea that would be suitable to the novice ...

This is the first time I try Earl Grey tea. I liked the aroma and I enjoyed the taste after I added some sugar in the tea. I failed to smell or taste any bergamot inside though. general a good tea. but from the health perspective, since black tea is not the best choice in hot summer, I won't try it again till winter. l...

Organic Jasmine Green Tea

Style: Jasmine Tea – Region: Hunan, China
Jul. 23rd, 2012

pros:
(1) fancier package than other tea bags I tried which are made of paper;
(2) organic... so I guess it's healthier.
(3) the smell is good. not too strong or too weak;

cons:
(1) the taste of the first cup is a bit too strong for me. I prefer the 2nd or 3rd cup of it when it's lighter.
(2)the caffeine doesn'...
