Earl Grey Loose Tea from Bigelow Tea

Feb. 13th, 2020

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...

85 / 100 Aroma: 7/10 Flavor: 4/5 Value: 3/5
Dec. 23rd, 2019

This smells and tastes like some halfway point between Bigelow Earl Grey and Twinings Earl Grey. With Bigelow, the bergamot note is strong and pointed and the tea has a more earthy taste. With Twinings, the bergamot note is more gentle and the tea has a more woody taste. With Harney & Sons Earl Grey, the bergamot note ...

Dec. 14th, 2019

This blend has some potential, but is far from my favorite flavored black tea. The first and biggest turnoff was the dry-bag aroma, which reminded me of cheap incense—specifically, the sort employed to smoke-bomb a room fast, in order to mask pot usage. This is the second tea that has given off that cheap-incense v...

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...

Now this was an unexpected treat! Rarely (if ever) have I had the loose and bagged version of a tea from the same company, at the same time, from the same order. Not only that, they're rather different (how?), but both delicious. I specifically had ordered the EG loose mainly for my wife, and the EG bags came in a v...

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 ...

We gleefully had sniffed demo leaves of Murchie's Earl Grey in their Victoria store before, but since had brought home and ordered only the tea bags of the cream version (Earl Grey Cream). My wife is a bigtime EG drinker—probably half her total tea consumption—and wanted some loose-leaf tea as part of our annual f...

Earl Grey teas are often my favorites, but I'm surprised that I like this blend better than Palais des Thes traditional earl grey. This one was absolutely delightful and really made my day better just by sipping it. I will be looking for again!

This is my favorite Earl Grey Cream tea yet, and that's not a knock on Murchie's excellent rendition, which is a better value but just a notch below Teavana in richness.

Teavana has undergone a remaking of its marketing and strategy under the Starbucks banner: no more stand-alone tea shops, just 15-sachet plastic t...

Mar. 5th, 2019

Both the dry tea and steeped liquor have a perfumy peach aroma that smells to me like peach Jolly Rancher candy (a discontinued flavor, sadly). There's just enough passion fruit to be detectable, but I bought this particular flavor for the passion fruit and am a bit disappointed that it isn't stronger.

A local Middle Eastern market had a gift pack of this tea along with a free Ahmad tea mug for $4, so I couldn't pass it up. I decided to try it alongside the loose leaf Special Blend. One thing that I'll note is that, though I assume they're intended to be the same tea, the packaging on the bagged tea doesn't include t...

The "subtle flavor of bergamot" is definitely subtle. I can't actually smell any bergamot in the dry tea. Instead, it smells entirely like a malty CTC Assam.

While the tea's brewing, I can just make out the citrus through the tea. I'm getting less malt than when dry, but much more dry, tannic, earthy leaf with a bac...

Plenty sweet and lightly spiced with clove and vanilla. This has a fair amount of orange flavor too. More than a little artificial tasting, and the base tea is bland. Nothing special here, but it is well priced.

Wow. This was one of the best-executed, if not THE best, fruit black teas I've ever tried.

I'm not normally a fan of flavored teas, but I had the opportunity to smell this at my parent's house, and the leaf smelled really appealing. The fruitiness is strong but it doesn't completely cover the aroma of the tea itself...

Twinings is a very afforadle and accessible brand of bagged teas - and if you like a classic Earl Grey (Bergamot flavor), and if you happen to like lavendar - the aroma of this tea is very nice. I would rather sniff it than drink it! I tried it hot with no dairy (ick) and no sweetener but a tad bit of honey might be ...

I adore this spicy tea. It tastes like Christmas morning in a cup. This one is good with or without a bit of honey; it is sweet enough to drink on its own. A splash of cream makes for a decadent treat. This tastes almost like melted red hot candies. It is powerful!

If you like very spicy teas like Assam chai, you w...

For a store-brand bagged tea, this seasonal offering was excellent! My immediate impression sniffing the dry bag was a striking resemblance to the flavor (not smell) of Good Earth's "Sweet and Spicy": very intense on cinnamon, with orange quite noticeable. However, unlike the Good Earth tea, this one has black tea (...

Incredibly strong fruity chocolate aroma which stays fairly throughout the brewing process. Taste-wise the tea is smooth with more of the fruitiness to it.

The tea visually looks great with the little cocoa pieces in it too.

A very sweet strawberry smell dry with a bit of vanilla, unfortunately it mainly tastes like strawberry tea when prepared.

It isn't bad strawberry flavoured tea though, really nice and drinkable but it doesn't really have any cream to it unless I add milk.

Amazing in all respects.

The smell is spot on for the dessert really breathing in the fresh baked pastry. The flavour is subtler than the aroma but you can still taste the spices and pear throughout.

At £4 for 15 pyramid bags is quite dear for tea bags however with most of this dessert tea range it is worth it f...

Smells like a sweet jammy cake before steeping, a truly mouthwatering smell. After steeping the strawberry aroma subdued and less sweet. The taste itself mirrors the subdued aroma with the strawberry being the main flavour coming through with the tea.

15 pyramid bags for £4 is towards the higher end of what I'd usu...

Given the ingredients list, here was a tea that caught both my eye and a few bucks of my credit-card balance, while stocking up at a Dallas Trader Joe's on some things I don't get in nearby Oklahoma markets.

Overall, it's not quite as high-quality as the other Earl Grey Creme tea I've tried (the bagged version from ...
