Tea Reviews:
Bigelow - Orange and Spice



This was the first herbal tea by Bigelow that I ever tried.  And I will say, I was disappointed.

I'm a long time orange tea fan; I usually drink the Mandarin Orange Spice blend by Celestial Seasonings, though.  To me, this blend was rather weak.  It smelled good, but didn't taste like much.  One thing that I love about herbals is that they tend to have stronger fruit flavors than blacks do.  But this one didn't, sadly.  I may try it again, but with additional bags, or maybe a longer steeping time.  If and when I do, I'll update this review with my findings.

In short:  Nice aroma, but weak flavor.  I'd advice you look to another brand.

 

Type:  Herbal tea (Orange, with spices)
