Feb. 4th, 2014

I like this tea - it's very strong and dark. I have a be careful when brewing it because there's a short window of time that it comes out good - for me about 3 minutes. After that it starts to get very bitter and astringent. I'm starting to notice that in general, it's hard to find decaf black teas that have a lot of f...

I like this tea. It has a nice blend of spices. The aroma is characterized by clove. I added cream and sugar. I notice that it's even better with vanilla added.

I was surprised when I tasted this tea. I don't like the aroma much - it smells like raisin toast, and I don't like the raisin aroma. But the taste is really different. It has a toasty flavor that I like. It's a little odd. I added cream and sugar.

This tea is interesting. I noticed that it had rooibos in it, and I thought it might be weird because I don't like rooibos very much, but it's actually pretty good. It has a smooth flavor. The spices are not overpowering, which is refreshing. I added cream and sugar.

This tastes like a typical low-quality green tea. I don't usually like green tea very much. I like this better than higher quality green teas, but nothing stands out to me about it. It has a very mild flavor. I added cream and sugar.

This tea doesn't smell much like chai, it smells like a combination of orange peel and caramel. I actually really like the flavor, though. I had to brew it for 7 minutes to make it strong enough. The flavors blend together pretty well. I added cream and sugar.

I kind of like this tea. I don't usually like green teas, but I tend to like the cheaper kinds better. This has less of a vegetal flavor and tastes more like white tea. I added cream and sugar.

This tea is very aromatic. Even the dry leaf, inside a zip lock bag, emanates its aroma. I like the blend of spices. The flavor is a little more spicy than I'd like relative to the strength of the tea, but overall, I like it. I added cream and sugar.

I'm not crazy about the flavor of this tea. It's a little bitter, and very sensitive to brewing time. I brewed it for 2 minutes and that seems to be optimal. I usually brew tea for at least 4 minutes because I like it strong. I added cream and sugar.

Style: Chai / Spiced Tea – Region: ?????

47 / 100 Aroma: 4/10 Flavor: 3/5 Value: 2/5 Overall: 5/10
Apr. 3rd, 2013

I usually like chai, but I don't like this tea much. The flavor is kind of bland - I had to brew it for a long time (7 minutes). I can't taste the black tea. The flavor is kind of overpowered by tulsi, which I don't like much in this context, and I don't think it goes well with the spices. I added cream and sugar.

This tea has a kind of bitter aroma and slightly bitter flavor. There wasn't anything about the flavor that I particularly liked, it just seemed kind of boring, but it was okay. I added cream and sugar.

I like the aroma of this tea, but it reminds me a little bit of those buttered-popcorn-flavored jelly beans. I can't brew it strong enough. I kind of like the flavor, but it also seems kind of bland. I added cream and sugar.

This tea has a strong, almost overwhelmingly fruity aroma. The flavor caught me by surprise because it's overwhelmed by ginger. If you love ginger, you might like this tea. I think it's mis-labelled. It says "with a hint of spice" on the package.

Considering I don't normally like rooibos, this tea is very good. I love the predominant vanilla flavor, and the rooibos compliments it. I added cream and sugar.

This tea is interesting. The first thing I notice is that it smells like beets - not a flavor that I like to associate with tea, at least not in this context. The flavor is good, though. At first it seemed weird, but after a few sips it started to taste really good. I added cream and sugar.

This tea doesn't have a very prominent tea flavor or aroma. It has way too much bergamot flavor for my taste. It's not quite undrinkable. Bergamot enthusiasts may love this tea. I added cream and sugar.

I don't usually like fruity herbal teas very much, but this one is pretty good. It has a rich savory-like flavor that I can only taste in the back of my mouth.
