Bigelow Classic Green Tea

Bigelow Classic Green Tea
This Bigelow Classic Green Tea is one of my daily teas. I've been drinking this and a couple other green teas for years. Bigelow says this tea is hand-picked and only comes from high elevation gardens.

To a warm cup, I added one tea bag, hot water and let it steep for three minutes. I ended up with a cup of honey colored green tea with a pleasant aroma.

The aromatic qualities of this tea radiate from the cup with nuances of sweet, light spice, and a bit of earth.

Flavor wise, this tea has notes of spice and earth. Be warned if you steep it over the recommended three minutes it will pick up some bitter tones.

Sipping this tea, the mouthfeel is on the heavy side for green teas, but it still delivers a bright wash across the palate. If you like sugar, honey, lemon added to your tea, this blend is sturdy enough to handle it.

Overall this is a nice green tea, with clean flavors. It's a bit bolder than most other green teas, but it's a nice change of pace.
