Bigelow - Green Tea with Pomegranate
This is the second green tea I've had from Bigelow, and I must say, I'm
The pomegranate flavor
was extremely mild; so mild that, if the packaging didn't clearly say
"pomegranate", then I'd not be able to guess what fruit it is. And
there was no underlying taste of green tea, either; just this watery,
washed-out fruit-ish flavor.
I didn't much like this
tea. I tasted neither green tea, nor pomegranate, and the
resulting brew was not very good. I read a review of this tea on
Amazon, where the writer likened the flavor to a piece of chewing gum,
after the flavor had mostly been chewed out...and that's actually a
fairly accurate description. I steeped for 3 minutes, so it's
possible that a longer steep might help. I've still got a few bags
of this, so I may give it another shot. But I don't expect that my
opinion will change.
In short: Weak,
watery tea that tastes slightly of fruit. I'd say skip this one.
