Plantation Mint® Black Tea from Bigelow Tea

Style: Black Tea with Mint – Region: ?????

45 / 100 Aroma: 5/10 Flavor: 3/5 Value: 2/5
Dec. 12th, 2018

Both the dry tea bag and brewing tea smell like straight-up spearmint oil.

Bigelow's base tea is too mild to stand up to the spearmint and I can neither taste nor smell any tea at all. Aside from the color, this is indistinguishable from plain spearmint. The spearmint is good, but I expect to taste tea in my tea.

58 / 100 Aroma: 6/10 Flavor: 3/5 Value: 3/5
Dec. 5th, 2018

In many ways, the behavior of this concoction from bag to cup to esophagus reminded me uncannily of the berry-flavored members of Celestial Seasonings' "Zinger" line:
* Fruity, hibiscus-heavy dry-bag and in-cup aromas,
* Initial cherry-red color turning a deep, opaque purple-gray with time,
* Strongly fruity,...

Aug. 24th, 2018

I like decaf Constant Comment, but hadn't gotten around to trying the original version. It turns out, it's not much different. I can taste a little of the maltiness in the finish, but that's about it. I already know that decaf black teas have little tea flavor, but I was hoping there would be more in this one. A bit of...

About 15 years ago, out by L.A., I saw a dude outside a smoothie shop dressed in yellow hat, yellow shoes and yellow tights, wearing a lemon costume. Had he asked me for a lift, I could have handed him a bag of this tea and satisfied the request.

Otherwise, the tea is not too useful. It reminded me a lot of flavor...

Earl Grey from Bigelow Tea

63 / 100 Aroma: 6/10 Flavor: 4/5 Value: 3/5
Jul. 13th, 2018

The dry tea smells strongly of bergamot. There's no hint of other flavors, citrus or otherwise, that other brands sometimes add.

Adding water really doesn't change much. I smell bergamot and a weak hint of dry leaves. The flavor's more balanced than I would have expected, though. The underlying black tea is mellow, ...

English Teatime from Bigelow Tea

Jun. 15th, 2018

The aroma is faint, but malty. The tea tastes thin and a bit cooked. Not offensive, just not much going on. If I take a big sip, there's a warm bitterness on the sides of the tongue that's nice.

As the tea cools down, it's more astringent and bitter than before. I'm trying to taste what might be in the blend and it ...

Jun. 9th, 2018

I like this tea. The flavor is quite complex and I'm not sure which flavors are the tea itself and which are "other natural flavors." The malt sweetness of the tea is foremost and the raspberry flavor is unmistakable, but subtle. The tea tastes alternately of Ceylon and Assam, coupling the malt with an almost roasted f...

70 / 100 Aroma: 7/10 Flavor: 4/5 Value: 4/5
Jun. 9th, 2018

The dry, standard tea bag smells like "blue raspberry" candy. Nice, but no complexity. Adding the water brings out the aroma of the hibiscus. The brewing tea is even deeper red than hibiscus, so the elderberries must be for color.

The flavor is hibiscus and rose hips with a little raspberry in the finish. The tartne...

May. 25th, 2018

I tried this in another attempt to find a decaffeinated black tea that tastes like tea.

The dry tea bag out of the foil wrapper smells vaguely spicy if I hold it to my nose, but there's not much there. Adding water brings out a small bit of aroma, but nothing that really smells like tea. It smells lightly earthy and...

Chinese Oolong from Bigelow Tea

50 / 100 Aroma: 4/10 Flavor: 3/5 Value: 3/5
May. 7th, 2018

A dark oolong with a nutty and buttery taste. It lacks the complexity of a higher quality oolong, but it has the advantage of being cheap and available at grocery stores. I actually prefer it cold brewed, and the ease of putting two bags in a water bottle overnight to take with me the next day is the only reason I'd ge...

Trying this tea 24 hours after "English Breakfast" and under nearly identical circumstances, I had a hard time telling the difference between the two. This one left less of an aftertaste (strength, and for sure duration) but was a little more bitter. Since the aftertaste of the other tea wasn't bad, the "more bitter"...

Mar. 23rd, 2018

Pulled from a hotel breakfast stash (lower-case, not the tea brand), I brought a bag home to chug in my usual well water. Dry-bag and in-cup aroma were feeble, as has been my experience with most Bigelow teas (except Constant Comment, a major favorite). The brew got dark fairly quickly, tasting pleasant enough, rather...

Mistakenly and distracted by engaging conversation, I grabbed a couple of bags at a conference, thinking this was straight green Bigelow tea as typically served, without looking carefully at the little red strip declaring, "with pomegranate". I still didn't notice upon ripping open the wrapper, dropping bag into cup a...

Not a lot to say about this tea, it tasted like chamomile but wasn't anything to write home about. Its perfectly drinkable, but nothing special.

I'm in love. Can't help it, this tea is wonderful. The first time I tried it I swore I was literally drinking a liquid version of a cookie. I bought it on a whim and after trying it immediately regretted not buying every box in the store before the holiday season had passed. Now I have to play the waiting game to see i...

When I opened the foil pack, it smelled incredible. The hibiscus flavor kind of overpowers the rest of it. Its not bad, but I don't really think pomegranate when I drink it. It kind of reminds me of a weaker, gentler ,and sweeter version of hibiscus tea.

I got it from a Bigelow sampler pack, and would be willing to...

Dec. 20th, 2017

This Earl Grey Tea is one of my favorites. I *never* steep this tea for more than 2-2.5 minutes. I like the fact that it takes less time to steep than other brands and I still get the caffeine and taste that I expect from Earl Grey.

However it isnt overly caffeinated, but this is another reason I like it. Sometimes ...

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.

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...
