Picture of Plantation Mint® Black Tea

Plantation Mint® Black Tea from Bigelow Tea

Style: Black Tea with Mint – Region: ?????

53 / 100 Aroma: 5/10 Flavor: 3/5 Value: 3/5
Sep. 27th, 2009

Aroma is candy-like and flavor is very smooth. While this pales in comparison to brewing quality black tea together with fresh spearmint, it's enjoyable.

The black tea isn't the best quality and has only a weak aroma, but the spearmint is quite aromatic. There's no bitterness or astringency, even if you let it bre...

Earl Grey from Bigelow Tea

Style: Earl Grey Tea – Region: Blend

53 / 100 Aroma: 5/10 Flavor: 3/5 Value: 3/5
Sep. 27th, 2009

A decent Earl Grey in teabags. Very fresh tasting, with a bold beragmot presence. The black tea is strong but a bit generic. Fairly bitter, with some astringency; it's possible to brew this too long.

I strongly prefer this to Twinings.

57 / 100 Aroma: 6/10 Flavor: 2/5 Value: 3/5
Sep. 27th, 2009

This was surprisingly strong for a white tea. I brewed it for 4 minutes using a little over a cup with the teabag, and it was too strong. I recommend either brewing for a shorter time or using the teabag to brew two or more cups at once. This tea is quite good for multiple infusions; the pear comes out more in later...

77 / 100 Aroma: 8/10 Flavor: 4/5 Value: 4/5
Sep. 27th, 2009

I find the bold, almost pungent aroma of blackcurrants quite enjoyable in this tea...it's a deep, dark sort of fruitiness that blends very well with the black tea. The tea in this blend is nondescript and is dominated by the blackcurrant, but that's ok with me! This is a peculiar fruit blend but I enjoy it very much;...

Red Zinger® Herbal Tea from Celestial Seasonings

Style: Herbal Tea – Region: ?????

37 / 100 Aroma: 6/10 Flavor: 1/5 Value: 2/5
Sep. 27th, 2009

This tea is much too sour for me; although I enjoy the aroma, I find it gets unpleasantly sour by the end of the cup. This tea becomes much more drinkable, in my opinion, if you use it as a 1-to-2 ingredient with other less sour teas to make a pitcher of iced tea.

Chamomile Herbal Tea from Celestial Seasonings

Style: Chamomile Tea – Region: Blend

57 / 100 Aroma: 5/10 Flavor: 3/5 Value: 4/5
Sep. 27th, 2009

Another typical chamomile tea; nothing to get excited about. I think this tea is a little more floral but less fruity than some. There's a little bit of the unpleasant muted sourness that plagues some chamomile teas. Enjoyable, but I've had better. Among celestial seanonings teas I much prefer the blends.

53 / 100 Aroma: 4/10 Flavor: 3/5 Value: 4/5
Sep. 27th, 2009

A typical and decent chamomile tea. Nothing really stands out...there's a little bit of the muted unpleasant aftertaste, and a hint of fruitiness in the aroma, a little bit of a straw-like flavor. Soothing. Not the best chamomile I've tried but certainly not the worst. Reasonably priced.

Sep. 27th, 2009

I absolutely loved this herbal tea. The aroma combined light and sweet marzipan-like tones with more robust earthy and nutty qualities. The cup was naturally sweet and very smooth. The ingredients were balanced just how I like; I can't suggest anything I would change about this blend.

I was very disappointed when...

Sep. 27th, 2009

This tea is on the margins of Celestial Seasoning teas that I enjoy...it has too much cinnamon for my taste; I think the clove blends much better with the orange than the cinnamon does. It's also a tad too sour for my tastes...although again it's just a bit out of my comfort zone. This is one of those teas that I wil...

Sep. 27th, 2009

This is one of my favorite Celestial Seasonings teas; the spearmint and chamomile go so well together, and dominate the aroma, although the other ingredients have a presence too. I find this tea to be among the most soothing of the commercial teas that are marketed as "bedtime" herbal blends.

Nowadays though, I str...

I drink this tea a lot when I get sick because it makes me feel better. The flavor is a bit of an acquired taste but I have grown quite fond of it. The ginseng is dominant in the aroma and imparts a bitterness and an earthy quality which blends well with the ginger. The peppermint and lemon lightens this one somewha...

Sep. 27th, 2009

Very fruity aroma; something about the aroma seemed a bit overdone and somewhat unnatural. Overall though, it was not bad. The fruit dominates the aroma, however...I had little sense of what kind of white and green tea was used as a base--it was weak and not very present. The flavor is smooth but on the weak side. ...

Initial aroma is mostly of peach if you brew this tea briefly, but as you brew it longer the ginger comes out much more strongly; the ginger aroma stays in the cup. Smooth, fresh tasting...the ginger is very noticeable, especially if you brew it for a long time. I enjoyed this one very much; it has a very different c...

70 / 100 Aroma: 7/10 Flavor: 4/5 Value: 4/5
Sep. 27th, 2009

Complex aroma; has a floral fragrance, suggestive of Jasmine. Crisp, clean, and light, but surprisingly flavorful. Remarkably easy to brew; better with slightly lower temperature water, but does not scald as easily as other green or white teas. Outstanding for a teabag tea!

Strong peppermint aroma, dominating the other aromas; only a weak aroma of black tea and spearmint. An unpleasant sourness. Definitely not among my favorite black tea / mint blends.

Don't like. It's really bitter tasting - I recommend Stash Tea's Fusion Green and White for something smoother yet still rich in antioxidants.

I just tried this tea and really loved the subtle lemon flavor, and I found it more smooth than bitter for a green tea.

This is without a doubt my favorite tea from mighty leaf and one of my favorite hojicha's that I've tried--definitely my favorite that's available bagged.

The aroma is rich and roasty and has some nuances. There's a bit more bitterness than some hojicha's, which I like, but there is little astringency or sourness; ...

This blend is predominately chamomile with only a hint of other herbs, and it is absolutely exquisite!

The aroma is mostly of light, fruity chamomile. A hint of mint comes out in the aftertaste; the muted bitter aftertaste that characterizes some chamomile teas is completely absent...in its place is a honey-like sw...

Sep. 23rd, 2009

To be fair I'm just not that into Pouchong tea... the melon-esque taste just doesn't do it for me. (I tend to refer to it as The Lamer Chinese Restaurant Tea in comparison to Pu-Erh.)
I found that TenRen's version leans to the slightly bitter side as well. Overall just an OK tea... it's nice, but not exciting.

The first time I had this tea I absolutely loved it. It's a great minty yet subtle fruity mix that smelled fantastic and tasted pretty good.
Yet, over the years this tea hasn't really held up for me... it's pretty expensive for one, it's tough to brew it without it going bitter, and I just eventually grew tired of th...

I really adore Pu-Erh tea and this is one of the most fantastic brands I've found in teabag form. It has a dark, rich colour and a smooth flavor- never gets bitter, effective but not overdone caffeine. Cheap enough to keep coming back to. Overall a solid choice.

Sep. 23rd, 2009

Very rich and full-bodied, and more bitter than Ten Ren's Tung Ting and Ten Wu oolongs, but still not very bitter. Pleasant aroma, both earthy and fresh...cleaner tasting than other dark oolongs I've had in teabags. I tend to prefer lighter Ti Kuan Yin teas...but I enjoy this one a lot, especially given that it is in...
