Lady Grey from Twinings

Style: Fruit Black Tea – Region: Blend

53 / 100 Aroma: 5/10 Flavor: 3/5 Value: 3/5
Nov. 13th, 2009

Interesting in that it is oddly earl-grey-like but much more fruity. The black tea used in this blend seems to be lighter than the black tea used in a typical Earl Grey, which combined with the fruitiness makes for a lighter tea. I actually strongly prefer this to Twinings' earl grey.

Blackberry Sage from Republic of Tea

Style: Flavored Black Tea – Region: Blend

40 / 100 Aroma: 4/10 Flavor: 2/5 Value: 3/5
Nov. 13th, 2009

A very soft and mild tea; slightly sweet, very little bitterness. Aroma is mostly of blackberry, with only a hint of sage or tea. I was expecting more bite (sage tea on its own is so strongly aromatic!) and was disappointed. Overall this tea was much too weak for me.

Nov. 11th, 2009

The aroma of this tea is pretty amazing. I opened the box and was overwhelmed by the smell of candy canes! I haven't been as impressed by the taste though. It has a little bit more bitterness in it than I would like.

Green Rooibos (Green Bush) from Rishi Tea

Style: Green Rooibos – Region: South Africa

90 / 100 Aroma: 8/10 Flavor: 5/5 Value: 5/5
Nov. 11th, 2009

I really like this! It's astonishingly different from the other green Rooibos I've tried, from Upton. This one has a bit of red leaf/stem mixed in and brews a bright orange color.

I recommend a very long steeping time; after 3 minutes the aroma hasn't fully developed. The aroma is fresh, light, and clean, with a ...

Nov. 10th, 2009

This is among my favorite teas from Republic of tea, and also the strongest tasting of their teas that I have tried. The bergamot is not totally overpowering...and unlike other flavored black teas from this company I find there's a stronger black tea presence in the aroma.

My only complaint is that this tea becomes...

Nov. 9th, 2009

This tea comes in individually wrapped packets, and it keeps for a considerable amount of time. The first box I purchased cost $3.89 for 20 tea bags with 1.48 oz,whereas the second was 1.99 for 16 packets with 1.13 oz. I presume some difference may be attributed to currency fluctuations. Like most oolongs, this has ...

Nov. 9th, 2009

As with Foojoy's China Black Tea, I found this a surprisingly good value. The black tea was wrapped in individual paper packets, whereas the Lunching box has several aluminum sealed packets containing individual bags. This tea has a pleasant aroma and a decent flavor. It compares favorably to many other green teas sol...

100 / 100 Aroma: 10/10 Flavor: 5/5 Value: 5/5
Nov. 8th, 2009

I absolutely love this tea. I let it steep longer than recommended because I enjoy the stronger flavor of spearmint. It's also nice because I've found that I can often brew the same bag twice. While the flavor is definitely less strong, it is still tasty and not as diluted as many other teas. Sleepytime is my favor...

Peppermint from Two Leaves Tea

60 / 100 Aroma: 7/10 Flavor: 4/5 Value: 2/5
Nov. 5th, 2009

Aroma very strong but more grassy and herbal, and more complex, than most straight peppermint teas. Balanced and not overpowering. Only a hint of sourness, less than most peppermint teas.

I still prefer the stuff I grow and dry myself, but this is a pretty good alternative. I give such a low rating for "value" be...

This is my favorite tea from Adagio so far. When brewed as recommended this tea is very light with a sweetness and some fruity tones. But I found it too thin this way.

I like brewing it much longer (8+ minutes) and with slightly warmer water (190-ish)...it comes out much stronger and more interesting...more grassy...

Perfect on a fall day! Tastes & smells of apples & cinnamon, but the cinnamon can be a little overpowering if you let it steep for too long.

Nov. 4th, 2009

Aroma of spearmint and little else; disappointing after Stash's other flavored teas which have a bolder tea presence. The spearmint is very smooth and candy-like, but overall this tea is weak, especially in comparison to Stash's other offerings.

There is a little bitterness which was the only hint of green tea pres...

I don't usually drink tea bag tea any more, but this one is always tempting to buy. This chai is more spicy then other ones I have tried. It is a lot less vanilla tasting then most chai teas. I like it's spice and its a great treat in the fall.

Nov. 3rd, 2009

Wow. I love the aroma of this tea...it is much more vegetal than most black teas, clean and fresh, and yet warm too. Smooth and yet relatively full-bodied, but thin relative to some breakfast teas. No astringency.

I do notice the peppery tones characteristic of a dian hong. The aroma is pleasingly complex. Ther...

60 / 100 Aroma: 5/10 Flavor: 3/5 Value: 4/5
Nov. 1st, 2009

The dry leaves have a fruitier aroma than the brewed tea, which is almost totally devoid of fruitiness, and is more earthy and slightly spicy. Tones of black pepper in the aroma.

Very full-bodied. Aftertaste is a bit flat. Not terribly complex in the aroma, but still enjoyable. I prefer Adagio's honeybush, which...

Nov. 1st, 2009

Aroma darker and more earthy, less fruity, than other rooibos I've tried. Flavor smooth but with some zing to it, without being bitter or too sour. Some astringency, but not too much.

I like this much, much better than other "non-wild" red rooiboses that I've tried. Although I still prefer green rooibos, this is ...

Smooth, naturally sweet, with licorice dominating the aroma, and a fair amount of mintiness present. Mellower than I expected for a tea with mint and eucalyptus. Soothing.

I imagine this one would also be good for a sore throat, as it seems to sooth irritation in addition to clearing your head. It also tastes pre...

The dry leaf is strongly aromatic but the brewed tea is only moderately so. Smooth, a bit grassier and much less fruity than most rooibos. Very thin, however. A bit dry tasting, a little bit sour, and leaves a funny aftertaste that builds as you drink the cup.

Of the teas I've tried from Adagio, this was my least...

Oct. 31st, 2009

Aroma spicy, unusually vegetal for a tea this dark, and unusually malty for a Darjeeling. Very interesting and complex! Dark liquor and tastes more like other black teas than most Darjeelings; I would not describe it as "golden" or "light". Remarkably bold and full-bodied and yet with little bitterness or astringenc...

Very sweet and fruity; this is without a doubt the sweetest and fruitiest honeybush I've ever tried. Almost candy-like, with an aroma like dried fruit. Less of the earthy or straw-like tones that I was expected.

A bit light and thin-bodied, however. Less rich than other honeybush I've tried.

I'm still not sure...

Beautifully fragrant leaves and beautifully fragrant brewed tea. Sweet, light, orchid-like floral aroma. Weak flavor, with a very clean taste...sweet with a hint of tanginess and no bitterness. Upon drinking, what seemed like a pleasantly strong aroma becomes too weak.

Adagio recommends brewing 5 minutes with 180...

A gentle and mild herbal tea. Brews an orange color. A hint of sourness but not too much, and not much bitterness either. None of the aromas dominate. In spite of the main ingredient being mint, I don't notice the mint all that much...pretty mellow.
