Jasmine Dragon Phoenix Pearls Green Tea from Teavana

Style: Jasmine Pearls – Region: ?????

60 / 100 Aroma: 6/10 Flavor: 4/5 Value: 2/5
Feb. 3rd, 2017

So expensive but fun and tasty. A novel-tea. (Pun intended). I am a big jasmine fan - but there are better ones out there. Still, I liked it.

Green Tea with Lemon from Bigelow Tea

Jan. 18th, 2017

Meh. Not impressed. You are better off brewing your favorite green tea and squeezing fresh lemon into it. I do not care for lemon in my green tea - unless it is iced. That said, Bigelow is inexpensive (and in my office - provided for free - in bags and K-cups) and accessible. An average, inoffensive green tea.

Nothing offensive about this reasonably prices and ORGANIC tea that you can pick up in a grocery store for under $5. Convenient bags. No issues.

Ginger Peach Green Tea from Stash Tea

Style: Flavored Green Tea – Region: ?????

73 / 100 Aroma: 9/10 Flavor: 4/5 Value: 3/5
Sep. 30th, 2016

Inexpensive - around $3 - $4 for a box of 25 tea bags. Frut and peachy fragrance that brews up quickly. Not nearly as good as Republic of Teas version - but very inexpensive and good when I can't get Republic's. My 11 year old loves fruuity teas (Peach and Pineapple especially). Some ginger notes - but not harsh. ...

Blah. This is another cheapie-green tea that will do in a pinch - or during times of desperation. There are way better teas on the market. Super cheap. Taste moderately vegetal and green - a good bit of astringency. Must be allowed to steep for 3-4 minutes.

Basic. Cheap. Fair.

This is a Mediocre, easy to find (at every TJ's) green tea with a slight "green grassy" taste. Not horrible, but not delicious. There are way better teas (some cheaper, some more expensive) that simply taste fresher and better.

Seemed a little stale tasting - even though I just bought it. Well, at least I did not...

73 / 100 Aroma: 8/10 Flavor: 4/5 Value: 3/5
Jul. 20th, 2016

This is a delicious, light-bodied (super light, actually) and fruity fragrant tea. You smell it more than you taste it - at least for me. Terrific at brunch - as Ariel says. I do think it would be pleasant as an iced tea - but you'd have to hot-brew it and let it steep a long time before chilling. (Don;t over ice i...

Jul. 20th, 2016

It's better than some of their flavored teas (like the dreaded "Constant Comment - that stuff is like potpourri), and OK in a pinch at the office (which is where I get this stuff). I would never spend money on Bigelow teas.

Blargh! One of my office-mates LOVES this stuff - but what does he know? Anyhow - it's OK. Just OK. Smells better than it brews-up. Dark black tea with a hint of sweetness. Just OK. Very inexpensive - thus it is available at many offices - like mine. (Jenna T. Drinker sums it up perfectly.)

I enjoy Bigelow teas over, say, Lipton or Salada - cheap - about $3 for a box of 24 bags. The green ones (Classic or flavored) are good.

I am not a fan of the Zingers in general - but raspberry is better than red or Lemon. They all smell great - but they just don;t taste all that wonderful to me.

Very sour/tart raspberry flavor with an herbal/green note.

I have no issues with this STRONG black tea - that stands up well to sweetener and/or milk (I never put milk nor cream in tea but if you do this is a good one). Traditional and smooth-tasting and brews up DARK in seconds. You can easily get 2-3 infusions from a bag. Inexpensive and available at supermarkets. Not a ...

63 / 100 Aroma: 8/10 Flavor: 3/5 Value: 4/5
Feb. 2nd, 2015

First off, this is a tisane - there is no tea in this blend. It is also caffeine free and very fruity with a fair shot of peppermint. Definitely well suited for iced tea. Sweetener optional. Not a big fan (as i tend to avoid mint) but a good and inexpensive choice from Stash. Worth a try.

Free in my office circa 2014. This "decaf" black tea with a hefty dose of citric acid (lemon juice?? I think not.) is available and drinkable but I would not go out of my way for it. We also have Bigelow's "Classic" green tea in the office. It's a step above Lipton-kick-your-ass black, but that's about it. No big w...

Amazed how good this cheap ($2.99 for a box of 24 bags) bagged grocery-store tea is. Not nearly as good as the Republic of Tea's version - but much less money and perfect for what I needed it for (A local PTA meeting). Stash teabags are perfect when you need to provide tea bags for a crowd and offer a decent quality ...

So surprised by how good this tea is for the cheap, cheap price (A box of 24 bags was $2.99 in my local supermarket). Very light & mild - innocuous flacvor - and I needed a quick fix for a parent/teacher meeting - so this was perfect. Not gourmet, not fancy, not a holy grail - but for a cheap teabag it's one of the b...

I got this in a "Silky Sachet" in an upscale restaurant. It has a very strong red-berry/pomegranate aroma which fades upon steeping. I liked this one - surprisingly - and I did add 1 packet of Splenda to it.

Also would be good iced, I imagine.

Eh. Meh.
It's better than their black tea - but that's not saying much. I get this for free at the office - and I would pick this over Lipton Black (The tea that jolts like cawfee) any day.

Inexpensive and drinkable - but there are plenty of better green teas out there - and some are only a tad more money.

Eh. Meh. Maybe I am just not a Tulsi (Holy Basil) girl. I love it in Curries. I love it on chicken - but maybe not as a morning cuppa. Meanwhile It tastes OK - not great and not awful, I think I will need to try a few more tulsi teas before I make a final determination - but at first sip - I'm not lovin' it.

Jan. 28th, 2014

Smells great - a strong fruity Mango/Tropical scent but doesn't taste nearly as good as it sounds/smells. In fact - if yuou sweeten it it is cloying and "fakey-mango".

I got this for free from my mother-in-law who visited Hawaii. I don;t think I'd go out of my way to seek this brand out, nor purchase it.

Too bad...

I actually enjoyed the first & second infusion of the teabag I brewed out of sheer desperation. Maybe it was because I was sick, maybe it was the 2 packets of Splenda I added (no honey to be found) and maybe it was because a hot cup of ANYTHING would have helped, but I rather liked the Twinings. Not a holy grail, but...

I loathe Orange & Spice-type teas. The aversion goes back to Celestial Seasonings that I was forced to drink as a child. So, when a local restaurant, gave me a bag of this when I had asked for Jasmine (He said they had "Orange Jasmine" - and Mighty Leaf does make an Orange Jasmine but this is not it.), I drank it - aga...

Dec. 3rd, 2013

I am not a huge fan of Celestial Seasonings - that said back in the '70's they were some of the first herbal tisanes I ever tried - even as a child.

I enjoy the smell of Country Peach Passion better than the taste. Sweet and fruity with a distinct (somewhat fake-y) peach note to it.

This might be one of my faves...
