Several bags of this tea have been sitting around my pantry for up to a year after bringing them home from a professional conference, occasionally consumed either alone or teamed with a bag of peppermint. Finally I'm thinking to rate it!

Where I grew up, a troublesome percentage of fellow youth sniffed glue, paint ...

This is my favorite decaf tea. It tastes a lot like the regular version to me, since the main thing that characterizes this tea is the bergamot flavor - strong but not overpowering, and blends well with the tea. I always brew it for a minute or two longer than the regular, about 6 minutes, and at this strength I can ba...

Sep. 25th, 2017

Bigelow's peach-flavored green tea pleasantly surprised me. I had rated their "Perfect Peach" herbal blend slightly lower, primarily because of the artificial flavoring that partly tastes that way.

The quality of the green tea seems good, and brews up a rich, deep amber in-cup. Some finely powdered sediment even fe...

I tried a peach tea that has some artificial flavoring. Here's what happened.

[Sorry, clickbait haters...couldn't resist...first, a backstory...]

For several years, my wife has used this, in combination with at least two other brands of peach tea and some black tea, to make a thoroughly delicious peachy iced tea...

The dry teabag smells mostly of cinnamon. There's a hint of citrus, but not near what I was expecting from the name.

Adding the hot water releases a distinct and pleasant lemon scent, but cinnamon is still the dominant aroma.

The taste is yet different. It definitely tastes of lemon oil or peel and is much strong...

This is a tea I've been drinking after coming home from work. It's OK. Seems to have a very dark color, close to black tea. Not much flavor so I always put a spoonful of honey in this.

This tea isn't really the best, honestly. While compared to stronger earl greys such as twinnings, it just...doesn't cut it. If you're used to drinking stronger teas, you may want to actually brew longer or even add another bag. The citrus taste also felt weird and unnatural, not really blending well with the other fla...

It's no big secret that I love peppermint, given that it pops up in my review docket almost as profusely as it does as a weed in cooler parts of the nation. As noted in one of my other reviews of a peppermint tea (Stash), it's hard, but possible, to screw up this herb as a tea.

Bigelow didn't screw this up. Thei...

May. 9th, 2017

Opening the foil pouch releases the scent of vanilla and cream, like custard or eggnog. Adding the water makes the aroma overpowering. This is decaf, so there is probably little tea aroma. Even if there were any, though, it would be completely masked by the flavoring.

The flavoring has a rich sweetness to it, but th...

I recently tried some decaf Constant Comment and liked the orange and spice blend, so I tried this. This blend is, in a word, disappointing. Orange & Spice is much heavier on the cinnamon and while I can taste the clove if I look for it, it's very much a background flavor. I don't smell or taste the orange at all. This...

Apr. 27th, 2017

The teabags smell really nice to me. The heaviest components are orange and clove. Adding water intensifies the aroma and brings out hints of cinnamon and sweet spice (cardamom? nutmeg?) in the background. The orange and spice overpower any recognizable tea aroma.

The flavor is dominated by clove with a taste that r...

It's apparently easier to decaffeinate green tea and still have some flavor than it is black tea. One thing I've learned about decaf greens, though, is to use hotter water than one would for the caffeinated varieties. Conventional wisdom for green tea is to use cooler water and shorter steeping times to keep from cooki...

In previous reviews, many have dubbed this as an "office tea" as it's readily available in offices, apparently. I don't work in an office, so I guess I wouldn't know. However, this tea is not available at any local supermarkets. My local Wal-mart does not sell this, nor does my McKinnon's. I actually had to acquire thi...

Upon opening the pouch, the teabag smells pungently of bergamot. Unlike Twinings, this tea seems scented with only bergamot and no other citrus. Immediately after brewing, the aroma of bergamot is still strong but, like most decaf black teas, there is little noticeable tea aroma. There's a little mustiness that may rep...

A hotel in northwest Dallas had bags of this tea on its breakfast area, so I tried a couple -- one there in (what is some of the consistently highest quality nationwide) city water and one at home in my own well water. In both instances, my impression of this tea is simple and straightforward: "Constant Comment" minu...

Meh. Not impressed. You are better off brewing your favorite green tea and squeezing fresh lemon into it. I do not care for lemon in my green tea - unless it is iced. That said, Bigelow is inexpensive (and in my office - provided for free - in bags and K-cups) and accessible. An average, inoffensive green tea.

One of the things I enjoy with either newly attempted teas, or favorite and familiar ones, is to breathe deeply from the freshly opened packaging and take in the scent of the dried tea. Since this concoction is labeled as vanilla with chai, I had a very well-defined, preconceived notion of how this would smell. Not e...

Have you ever tried to mix paints and stopped before the colors blended, when you had a swirl of mostly separate colors instead of the full, distinct, evenly distributed hue for which you aimed? This is the herbal-tea equivalent.

Better aroma than taste...this tea can't establish its identity inside the mouth, so...

Not even realizing I had a bag of this, I discovered it while digging in my pantry's tea shelves for something else. Guess my wife won't miss just one bag, eh...especially if there was only one in there. ;-)

Overall, I liked this tea a lot. The real apple pieces are quite visible inside the bag, and impart the gr...

As black-tea blends go, this is a bit above-average in my experience, and worth purchasing at a discount if you seek a coffee alternative with a caffeine kick. Mine was supplied at a hotel, and I took a couple extra bags home to try in my own well water for fair-comparison's sake.

Remarkably for its rather weak aroma, the flavor of the tea is reasonably robust after several minutes of steeping. I found this tea offered in the daily coffee-break session of a professional conference, and liked it. Not many others did, so there were plenty of leftover bags to grab and bring home. :-) I agree wi...

This offering has been rebranded simply, "Premium Tea".

It offers a rich, dark color and flavor after steeping for 5 minutes instead of the recommended 2, but that does come at the expense of quite noticeably more bitterness than usual for most black teas I've immersed that long. I'm not big on bitterness, nor c...
