Orange Dulce from Mighty Leaf Tea

Style: Flavored Black Tea – Region: ?????

21 / 100 Aroma: 2/10 Flavor: 1/5 Value: 1/5
Sep. 1st, 2009

I am not a fan of this tea. It's a black tea, supposedly also with some green tea in it, but I don't taste much of the tea. The aroma is dominated by vanilla and some other spices. The different aromas do not blend well: some are delicate, others are heavy.

I also tried making iced tea from this brew. In this ca...

Dragon Well Tea from Ten Ren Tea

Style: Dragon Well Tea – Region: China

70 / 100 Aroma: 6/10 Flavor: 4/5 Value: 5/5
Aug. 30th, 2009

This teabag contains broken leaves of green tea, but they are more whole than the fannings and dust found in some teabags.

The tea brews a clear golden colour and has a rather strong smokey aroma with some hints of grassyness. It has a crisp flavor with some bite. Even when brewed at a lower temperature, there's s...

Wooloong Tea (Oolong Tea) from Roland

Style: Oolong Tea – Region: ?????

80 / 100 Aroma: 8/10 Flavor: 3/5 Value: 5/5
Aug. 30th, 2009

This was a surprise; I picked it up at a Korean store in Portland, ME; 6 oz. for $6. The leaves are dark brown and tightly rolled, and unfurl greatly upon brewing. Although some of the leaves are broken, many of them are whole and the pieces of leaf are quite large.

This tea can be brewed many different ways. Rol...

Japanese Green Tea from Kirkland Signature / Costco

Style: Green Tea – Region: Japan

27 / 100 Aroma: 2/10 Flavor: 2/5 Value: 2/5
Aug. 30th, 2009

After generally being impressed by the quality of Kirkland's other products, I was disappointed by this tea.

The aroma was weak and stale; there was little complexity and in particular, none of the fresh grassy or vegetal tones that characterize many Japanese green teas. The flavor was weak too.

I found the brew...

Picture of White Peony

White Peony from Rishi Tea

Style: White Peony Tea – Region: Fujian, China

33 / 100 Aroma: 3/10 Flavor: 1/5 Value: 3/5
Aug. 29th, 2009

A disappointment, especially compared to Rishi's other offerings. The brewed tea is amber in color. The aroma is bold and peppery without being sharp; it almost suggests celery, but without the fresh vegetal notes most white teas have. There's not much bitterness, but there's a fair amount of sourness. This tea is ...

Green Tea Tropical from Mighty Leaf Tea

Style: Flavored Green Tea – Region: Blend

50 / 100 Aroma: 5/10 Flavor: 4/5 Value: 2/5
Aug. 29th, 2009

Not bitter at all, and the fruitiness outweighs any sort of tea aroma. I would prefer a stronger presence of the green tea relative to the fruit, but I still enjoy it, however. This is well-executed for a fruit-flavored green tea.

My only complaint is the price tag!

Picture of ZG15: China Chun Mee

ZG15: China Chun Mee from Upton Tea Imports

Style: Chun Mee – Region: China

70 / 100 Aroma: 6/10 Flavor: 4/5 Value: 4/5
Aug. 29th, 2009

This tea, which I enjoyed, has been discontinued, which I don't think is a big loss because I preferred both the Chun Mee Dao Ming and Chun Mee Moon Palace from Upton.

Mellow and subdued, with a coolness to the aroma, without being crisp. There's a little smokiness in the aftertaste but less in the initial aroma. ...

Organic Green Tea from Revolution Tea

Style: Green Tea – Region: ?????

73 / 100 Aroma: 7/10 Flavor: 4/5 Value: 3/5
Aug. 29th, 2009

This blended green tea has a surprisingly distinct character. It has strong grassy tones, without the sharpness of the sencha and the acidity of the chun mee. Moderately bitter. I found this to be a very enjoyable green tea. It is quite pricey, although the price is on par with other brands selling pyramid sachets ...

Pouchong Tea 3rd Grade from Ten Ren Tea

Style: Pouchong Tea – Region: Taiwan / Formosa

83 / 100 Aroma: 8/10 Flavor: 4/5 Value: 5/5
Aug. 29th, 2009

I'm not sure I agree with the commercial description; it says "sharp and full bodied with a roasted quality" but I don't notice any of these qualities--this tea seems mellow, thin and clear, not full-bodied, and has not even a hint of roasted tones.

The aroma is light and floral, with a vegetal character, and perhap...

Jade Cloud (aka Green Jade) from Rishi Tea

Style: Green Tea – Region: Hubei, China

91 / 100 Aroma: 9/10 Flavor: 5/5 Value: 5/5
Aug. 29th, 2009

The aroma is very complex, with some grassy tones and some sharpness. Simultaneously clean and rich tasting. In my opinion, this tea combines the clean, sharp qualities of a good Japanese Sencha, without the fishy quality, and with the more rich and warm characteristics of some of the better Chinese green teas.

Th...
