This is one of my go to relaxation teas before bed. I’ve tried countless earl grey teas, but I keep coming back to this one. I’m not sure what it is about this one that is so different from others on the market, but I feel like it’s a stronger tea and the bergemot oils are a bit stronger as well, even for a decaf tea.
If you’ve had this one in the past that looks like the grey box in the picture, do yourself a favor and grab a new box when you go to the store. Bigelow redesigned all of their packaging, which looks better, and I swear the tea is even better than before. Maybe it’s just fresher, but it’s a welcomed change. Also with most of the new Bigelow packaging, they seem to be eliminating or slowly phasing out the use of staples in their tea bag packaging, which is nice. Could be purely mental, but I swear I can taste the metallic taste of the staple if I let it steep the entire time I’m sipping it, which I normally do.
