Bigelow Pomegranate Black Tea

 Okaydee Raidee! First review. Today I am reviewing Bigelow's Pomegranate black tea. They recently were gracious enough to send me a few samples of their teas. So here we go.

Black tea, natural apple and pomegranate flavors, soy lecithin, licorice root, hibiscus, rose hips, pomegranate oil, and citric acid.

Dry Visual

The teas are in tea bags so it was somewhat difficult to tell, yet very fine in texture.

Dry Aroma
This tea I found to be extremely "perfumey" not unlike that of a Dr Pepper. This mde me extremely happy as I knew it would be good and strong. 


Alright this tea was absolute magic. Im not one for fruity flavors...however this one seemed more candy like. I used two sugars, and I probably shouldnt have because it has it's own sweetness due to the pomegranate oil infusion.Mild astringency.


Dark golden red hue

Brewing Time

Reccommended steep 1-2 minutes, I steeped for 4.

Bigelow Tea Company


Being a black tea one has to assume caffeine is a factor, although it is not stated on the package that it contains said caffeine.

Special Note
Overall I really enjoyed this tea. I wouldn't recommend pairing it with sweets, though as it is a sweet in itself. 

If you have tried this before and gotten a different experience or would like to share, follow follow follow! Have a great tea time!

Alrighty. Let's start with the basics. I do not drink from quintessential "teacups" because they are just too pretty to use. I have one...somewhere. I tend to use mugs because I have MANY of those and it's just easier. Plus Im a pig. lol. Maybe I'll do a review on teacups vs mugs one day. But just so no one hounds me for not using proper tea etiquette...I have warned you.

My first review will be posted tomorrow, and I will choose the tea tomorrow as well. Surprises!

Hope you are as excited as I am.

Very First Post!
