Steep by Bigelow Organic Dandelion & Peach Rooibos & Green from Bigelow Tea

Style: Rooibos / Tea Blend – Region: ?????

47 / 100 Aroma: 7/10 Flavor: 2/5 Value: 2/5
May. 18th, 2022

The ingredients list rooibos first, so it can't be more than half green tea. The dry tea bag smells exactly like freeze-dried peaches and so does the tea while steeping.

The tea tastes like peach with a hint of earthiness from the rooibos and possibly the dandelion. If I concentrate, I can make out a bit of green te...

RateTea has been good for my life, by motivating me to variegate my tea sampling, and opening up new flavor and olfactory worlds. How's that for advertorial testimony? :-) That, however, has included getting me to sample nasty to mediocre teas, as well as some very good ones I otherwise wouldn't have had. This clas...

42 / 100 Aroma: 5/10 Flavor: 2/5 Value: 3/5
Jul. 19th, 2021

After my experiences with other teas in the Steep line, I'm a little disappointed in this tea. It's not terrible, though.

The dry tea smells like dusty hay, vegetal, but otherwise nondescript.

The brewing tea smells grassy, but the aroma is a bit weak. There's also a sort of "shrimp" note that I've detected in ot...

Premium Tea Decaffeinated from Bigelow Tea

This tea came from a motel. That isn't surprising, considering that the Bigelow website for the product offers 48-bag boxes and cases thereof, as if targeting the food-service market. I've gotten the regular version of this (which is mediocre too) in motels as well as on airplanes.

For a decaf tea, Premium Decaf w...

Back to traveling with motel stays again this year, and back to finding their teas I haven't rated yet! As always, I'll bring an extra bag home to try in my well water for consistency in rating, so that bad local water doesn't affect a tea's rating unduly.

The concept behind "Green Tea with Lemon" left me with a s...

Having not been either impressed nor repulsed by Bigelow's regular Earl Grey, and having not gotten any new teas to review for some months, and having to work down a stockpile of reviewed teas, I finally raided my wife's cache of the decaf version to try it for a report here. I've missed RateTea more than I've missed ...

Not bad, considering this is a teabag. It tastes like a basic but not bitter black tea, and I do notice some raisin-like notes as well. It’d be a good at-work tea.

78 / 100 Aroma: 8/10 Flavor: 4/5 Value: 5/5
Apr. 7th, 2020

Steeped for a little over 5 minutes, with near boiling water, in a 10oz tea for one pot yielding two cups.

I personally liked this. Compared with something like Bigelow Pomegranate Green Tea it’s apparent that the flavor is not true pomegranate but more like a fruit tea that happens to be geared towards the tart f...

When comparing among decaf green teas, Bigelow does live up to its name brand. This tea is less intense than its caffeinated cousin, but it has a relatively neutral aroma and no significant bitter aftertaste.

This is the first time I'm trying Bigelow Earl Grey in loose form. I've purchased the teabags in the past, but from other experiences, I know that the loose tea and teabags don't always have the same taste.

My first impression was that, compared to other black earl grey teas I've gotten in tins, this variety has muc...

Dec. 16th, 2019

For a bagged tea, this isn't bad. It diffuses quickly and has a pleasantly strong aroma and flavor. The cinnamon is at a good intensity for me and it blends well with the black tea. This will be part of my collection of bagged teas at work from now on.

I think that this is the first time I will have said (or written) this, but I actually prefer the teabag form of this tea. The balance of flavors is off in this. I've tried four different ways of brewing it, changing both the times and the amount of tea, but nothing felt quite right.

Using 2 1/2 tsp for 2 min using...

This is only the second tea by Bigelow that I've tried (and both, I've tried in the last two days). I've been, overall, impressed by Bigelow. I admit that after being quite disappointed by other American brands, I gravitated towards those from the UK. I assumed that they'd be better able to formulate a good cup of tea,...

Caveat: Constant Comment is one of my very favorite teas, so even a noticeable dropoff from that still garners a favorable rating from me.

The Good: As bagged decaf teas go, this is one of the most tolerable, and dare I say pleasant. Most of the wonderfully clove/orange/cinnamon aroma and flavor of original Const...

Nov. 10th, 2019

This is tea from a tea bag, so right from the start, we're not dealing with the best quality. But, this sort of tea isn't for having a gourmet experience. If it were, they wouldn't sell it for a few dollars at the local supermarket. It's a daily tea. On that level, it does fine.

The flavor profile is different from ...

Oct. 16th, 2019

Upon opening the foil pouch, this smells strongly and plainly of rooibos. Adding the water brings a surprisingly strong aroma of orange oil.

The flavors play well together. The orange lends sweetness to the tart hibiscus and rose hips. The nuttiness of the rooibos adds a nice, nutty complexity that isn't often foun...

The dry teabag smells like a spiced cake, like carrot cake or gingerbread. The spice is predominantly cinnamon (mellow "Ceylon" cinnamon rather than the hotter cassia), but there's something else there, too, like nutmeg or ginger.

Interestingly, the instructions say to only steep for two minutes. I'm ignoring their ...

Caffeine generally doesn't bother me, even before sleepytime (lower-case, not to be confused with the Celestial Seasonings brand of herbal tea). As such, I am still rather inexperienced with decaf teas, outside of 1) a couple of lame food-service brands and 2) a strongly flavored variety that I have loved dearly for a...

This was among the better bagged, fruit-flavored black teas I've had. Raspberry teas are uncommon in my experience, so I figured to try some that I saw on a hotel tray in Gillette, Wyoming. Their water ain't the greatest, so I drank one there and also took a bag home. Upon ripping open the foil-lined pouch (s.o.p. f...

Caveat: While tolerant of them in some combinations and contexts, I'm not a big fan of either lemon or ginger. Please take this rating in the context of assessing the nominal mix of two flavors that, while not repulsive to me, aren't particular favorites either.

When I do have ginger, I look for it to give a good...

Most Bigelow teas I've tried, I've never bought, thanks to hotels, restaurants and conferences. This one was no exception. I don't care for cranberry as a flavor, so you wouldn't catch me plunking down even a couple bucks at the Wal-Mart clearance bin for any herbal tea named after cranberries. Fortunately there is ...

I don't love lemon. Regardless, if you do, this seems to be as reasonable of a presentation of the natural flavor as you'll find in a hot beverage, short of cooking lemonade. Perusing the ingredients, this should be expected with three different plant sources of the lemon ester: lemongrass, lemon verbena and lemon (...

We first found this in an estate-sale pantry. Then my wife bought another box, because she enjoyed it as a morning and midday tea, when she didn't want something quite as potent as her favorite Assam or Irish breakfast blends. Loath to pilfer her teas and disharmonize domestic tranquility, I've just had a couple bags...

The green tea smells stronger than it tastes. There's nothing offensive about it, but neither is it satisfying. I rather suspect that Bigelow's green teas are blended for those that drink green tea for purported health benefits rather than the flavor. It's mild and not bitter, but it lacks any brightness or vegetal com...
