Episode 175: Pomegranate Pizzazz

Bigelow! At long last, we meet again. This time, it’s Pomegranate Pizzazz, one of five teas in a recent sampler I picked up from Amazon.

This herbal tea packs a lot of ingredients, but the one flavor that stands out the most isn’t the one this blend is named after! Note for note, this reminds me of Tazo Passion, and there’s only a faint whisper of pomegranate as an after taste. It’s not a bad tea; it’s just not the flavor it says it is. Maybe they should rename it “Hibiscus Hooray”.

Episode 197: Sweet Dreams

Bigelow has been hit or miss for me in terms of flavor, so I wasn’t sure what to expect with this herbal tea blend. I’m guessing the chamomile, known for its calming qualities, contributes to the “Dreams” part of Bigelow Tea’s Sweet Dreams. The rest of the ingredients are all over the place: peppermint, spearmint, hibiscus, orange, and rose.

Even with this motley mix of ingredients, the blend is not half bad! I think the mint and the chamomile cancel each other out (one relaxes you, the other stimulates you), but the resulting brew is a fruity, minty blend with a bit of natural sweetness. And hey — there’s the “Sweet” part of this tea’s name!

Episode 202: Orange and Spice

Bigelow’s Orange and Spice herbal tea is probably one of their better blends (even if it is a bit generic). Rose hips and hibiscus help support the tangy orange peel in this blend, and the roasted chicory punches up the “spices” (which I think is just cinnamon).

As a hot tea, it’s not that remarkable. The orange flavor is waxy and dull, and the chicory and cinnamon give a bitter aftertaste. But this blend shines as an iced tea. The orange is more tart and juicy, and the spices give a nice complement to that. Try it out and let me know what you think!
