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 ordinary base flavor, yet noticeably bitter. It's far from the worst hotel-provided black tea I've had, and I won't turn down some at no extra cost, but I won't be buying a box for home consumption.

Most teas I try have one at least somewhat surprising element about them. Despite its general blandness, this one did too: a long-lingering aftertaste that was pleasant to tolerable, but just would not go away. Twenty minutes after finishing, I still tasted the tea the same as if I had just swallowed a sip. That was a new experience. The tea consumption wasn't long after the morning brushing/flossing regimen either, so (in case you're curious), there was no in-plaque flavor residency involved. If this had been an unpleasant tea, I would have needed a strong dose of high-powered mouthwash to scour out the unwanted taste residue!

It's better than some of their flavored teas (like the dreaded "Constant Comment - that stuff is like potpourri), and OK in a pinch at the office (which is where I get this stuff). I would never spend money on Bigelow teas.

In my opinion, this is the best straight black tea from Bigelow and it really stands out among the rest of their offerings. It's a fairly powerful black tea, but it also has some complexity in the aroma...some of the tones suggest that there's a bit of Darjeeling mixed in with whatever else is this blend.

Fairly bitter and astringent but not overwhelmingly so. I think this tea tastes best if you use one teabag for a small cup (less than 8 oz.).

I drink this a lot and bring it with me to class. I like English breakfast tea in general and this is tasty and a good price. It tastes great with some lemon and honey.
