Dec. 11th, 2016

At first I didn't like this tea. The aroma was delicious honey, but I found the bitter earthiness in the flavor a bit off putting.

However, I tried it again the next day and used a smaller amount of tea...about 5 grams brewed in a 4 ounce gaiwan. I got 7 infusions.
This time the honey came out more in the flav...

Dec. 10th, 2016

Another of the teabags I picked up at a wedding recently. Good quality, but not the sort of blend that I'm crazy about.

The tea bag itself smells like dried ginger, I can't smell much tea, and upon brewing, the cup smells similar. The flavor though has a good balance of tea and ginger, but even drinking the cup, g...

Dec. 9th, 2016

Wow, this tea was quite satisfying, especially for cold days.

The dried leaf smells good, the aroma is mild but complex, mostly fruity and malty, with hints of spice, dried herbs or portpourri.

The leaves explode in aroma when they are steeped in water and there's a honey-like aroma that is a hallmark of higher g...

Dec. 8th, 2016

Looking at the teabag boxes in-store, I wasn't sure if this would be a worthy purchase or not. I never had tried vanilla-flavored EG black tea before. With a combination of:
1) The really sweet, pleasant smell of the loose-leaf sampler as I crushed some between fingers and
2) The favorable Canadian/U.S. dollar e...

Dec. 8th, 2016

As black-tea blends go, this is a bit above-average in my experience, and worth purchasing at a discount if you seek a coffee alternative with a caffeine kick. Mine was supplied at a hotel, and I took a couple extra bags home to try in my own well water for fair-comparison's sake.

Bigelow delivers extra caffeine ...

Medium strength orange pekoe , yet not close to a regular black tea harshness . Somewhat weaker and smother .I detect there is somewhat of a Liquorice flavour . Great as its the only tea grown historically in the island of saint michael's azores , portugal.

This black tea is weak yet a little mellow , woody finish . Bark and wet wood lingers on the palette.
this particular tea is harder to find then the blue labeled black tea from the same tea company .

Dec. 5th, 2016

When I scanned the product bar code into My Fitness Pal, the MFP app returned Stash Organic breakfast blend black tea.

If it is Target's reselling/repackaging of the Stash's tea, it is a great deal at $3.49 for 20 bags.

It tastes very good.

An unopened and sealed box of 20 bags was available at an estate sale, so I grabbed it with no particular expectations. It delivered no particular impression, so I guess you can say expectations were met! :-)

The tea tasted like a fairly standard-order green tea, neither bad nor excellent in any given way. It is...

As with their Chamomile (which was a good bit better), I got a few bags of this blend as a hotel guest in edifices where this was provided in-room, in individually wrapped bags. I hoped for more. The tea was surprisingly bitter and rather plain in taste, without any originality or uniqueness. I'd expect that from a ...

Nov. 30th, 2016

I enjoyed this tea; it's a potent black tea of good strength, with a classic British character. One could convincingly substitute this for an English Breakfast blend. It also has a great price, and is a bit smoother than other similar teas in its price range.

The cup is moderately aromatic, a little malty but mor...

Nov. 28th, 2016

I finally tried a couple bags of this preparation after having had some great iced tea made partially therewith (more below). The black tea is rich and smooth, as has been my experience with other Stash bags.

My main complaint about this tea is that the peach part of the flavor is not really good or bad, just "th...

Nov. 28th, 2016

This tea was extraordinary and was one of the best blended teas I've ever tried. I do tend to really like Scottish Breakfast as a style of tea, and this was an unparalleled example of such.

The dry leaf has a pleasing aroma with a light hint of smoke, just what I'd expect: noticeable, but a bit less than in a Russi...

The flavor is robust for the first cup and it infuses quickly. It's quite pleasant in holiday fashion, though not my favorite flavor. There is both spiciness and sweetness to it.

I just received a package of this Kukicha today, and immediately decided to give it a go.

Lately I've been brewing in a pseudo-gong fu style...using a lidded tasting set as my gaiwan (actually works quite well). But I recently ordered a couple of gaiwans that should be here soon.
Steeped 2 teaspoons in 4 ounces o...

This is my first experience with a Turmeric blend, I was really more interested in the ginger quality, so I have limited context in which to review this tea.

The aroma of the dry leaf is a playful blend of ginger and citrus, which excited me a great deal.

There the excitement ended. The infusion itself was decen...

Nov. 22nd, 2016

Overall a pleasant flavor tea, bright for an afternoon pick-me-up. However I will echo the "lemonade" flavor previously mentioned and this is probably from the "natural flavor" in this tea. My opinion is that quality tea, blends, and herbs speak for themselves without need of such flavor enhancers.

Amber liquor. Aroma is very mild. The taste is very mild. It would be fine for all day sipping. To my taste, milk or sugar will overpower this tea.

This is a lovely, robust tea with a pleasant sweetness. It would make a solid substitute for coffee lovers with a moderate sweet tooth. I could see myself drinking this very regularly.

Strong flavor and aroma. Delightful Yunnan. I bought these for dining out. When I go out for breakfast, I take some of these along. I enjoy this tea and find it much more flavorful than the national brand the restaurant offers.

If you are into that sort of thing, this tea is probably amazing, but not how I prefer my tea to taste. It's like I made a nice earthy tea, but used the same water I had...

Wow, the aroma of this white tea is amazing. Like a combination of herbs and fruit...or fruity herbs :)
The pyramid sachets contain whole long buds, and the aroma before steeping is almost as good as the fully brewed cup.

The flavor is the best of any white tea I've tried...though I haven't tried that many due to ...
