Bigelow teas have always been just right; not too strong, not too weak, no matter if you leave the tea bag in your cup or not. If you're more into 'lighter' tasting teas, this one can be kind of heavy, if you will. I love the smell, as bergamont oil is an invigorating scent. This tea, in my opinion, is best enjoyed anytime, especially winter, rather than a cup of hot chocolate. And if you're looking to replace your coffee intake, this might be a good tea to start with. Enjoy!
