I’m excited to see Bigelow releasing bolder flavors and picked this up the first time I noticed it on the supermarket shelf.

The combination of Turmeric and Chili Powder in drinks is certainly trendy/trending.

I can also get behind the “Benefits” marketing language, “put good things in our bodies to help us stay strong.”

I enjoyed this tea, although it has more nettle and lemongrass flavor than I was expecting from the box description.

The Matcha green tea itself seems to be reasonably decent quality. Not surprising for low-cost matcha, I’m unable to get a second steep out of the bag.

I’ve tried it straight, and I’ve also tried it with a little honey mixed in, both are tasty.

Flavors: Black Pepper, Dandelion, Fennel, Freshly Cut Grass, Grass, Hay, Herbaceous, Herbs, Lemongrass

I’ve been a lover of tea for as long as I can remember. A hot cup of Bigelow Constant Comment will bring back a flood of memories of working at a summer camp outside Yosemite when I was 18. When I’m sick with a cold there’s nothing that helps more than Celestial Seasoning’s Lemon Zinger with a heaping spoonful of honey.

Now that I’m older I’ve learned to appreciate delicate and complex oolong and green teas. Right now I’m discovering I really like teas from Thailand. (Going beyond Thai Iced Tea, which I’ve always loved).
