Style: Assam – Region: Assam, India87 / 100 Aroma: 7/10 Flavor: 5/5 Value: 5/5 Overall: 9/10
Dec. 22nd, 2016
Murchie's website touts this Assam as, "especially good where water conditions overpower more delicate teas". As someone who likes strong and unpretentious teas, that caught my attention, even though my well water is good. And it's cool of them to be considerate of folks with poor water and offer a tea supposedly int...Read Full Review

Wow, this tea was quite satisfying, especially for cold days.Read Full Review
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...
Style: Assam – Region: Assam, India90 / 100 Aroma: 9/10 Flavor: 5/5 Value: 4/5 Overall: 9/10
Oct. 16th, 2016
My brew had a very dark, deep brown liquor. Good taste with a hint of a smoky after taste. Probably strong enough for milk or sugar for those who indulge. Some lemon might be just the thing.Read Full Review
Style: Darjeeling Black Tea – Region: Darjeeling, India77 / 100 Aroma: 8/10 Flavor: 4/5 Value: 4/5 Overall: 7/10
Oct. 4th, 2016
I bought it hoping it will be an excellent tea, but it is not. There is something in its aroma and flavor that I do not like. Nor is it something horrible. Read Full Review
Style: Darjeeling First Flush – Region: Darjeeling, India87 / 100 Aroma: 8/10 Flavor: 5/5 Value: 4/5 Overall: 9/10
Sep. 28th, 2016
I loved this one.Read Full Review
No picture of this because unfortunately it was removed from Harney's catalogue before I posted my review.
The dry leaf of this smells wonderful, and unexpected. It smells more like an autumnal flush tea, with more malty notes and a sort of soft, rich, caramel smell. There are floral and caram...
Style: Darjeeling Black Tea – Region: Darjeeling, India70 / 100 Aroma: 7/10 Flavor: 4/5 Value: 3/5 Overall: 7/10
Sep. 14th, 2016
This was served to me at a wedding and I was able to take a few different tea bags to try them later. I was surprised at the quality of this one.Read Full Review
The tea bag is not extraordinarily aromatic, but the brewed cup has a very nice, strong black tea smell. It reminds me a lot of sticking my nose into a bin of fresh, loo...
Style: Assam – Region: Assam, India90 / 100 Aroma: 8/10 Flavor: 5/5 Value: 4/5 Overall: 10/10
Sep. 7th, 2016
I love the color of the brewed cup. The rich and robust malty flavor is very pleasing. I typically enjoy this tea with dessert.Read Full Review

Place obtained: Bio&Bio; Ilica 70; Zagreb, Croatia
Price: 39,90kn - 2,22kn/teabag (5,88$ - 0,33$)
Teabags: 18 * 2g = 36g
Aromatic tea with, maybe, the best smell. But scent is the best part of it, and considering price, would rather go with something else.
Style: Darjeeling Black Tea – Region: Darjeeling, India70 / 100 Aroma: 7/10 Flavor: 5/5 Value: 3/5 Overall: 6/10
Jul. 20th, 2016
I LOVE Darjeeling - and next to a jasmine green, a darjeeling is the PERFECT cup for me - especially in the AM. That said, Republic's loose version is a terrific value. Can't guarantee that it is first flush - but it is a very good value and I enjoy this one and have purchased it twice ($13 for a tin). Now comes in ...Read Full Review
Style: Darjeeling Black Tea – Region: Darjeeling, India63 / 100 Aroma: 7/10 Flavor: 4/5 Value: 2/5 Overall: 6/10
Jul. 20th, 2016
With Tea Forte you are paying for cutesy packaging - and these are terrific for gift giving - hostess gifts, bridal showers etc. The tea itself is usually good but not mind blowing and their "estate" darjeeling is good. Very nice, actually, and I am a BIG darjeeling fan (The first flush from Republic of tea is terrif...Read Full Review
Style: Black Tea – Region: Nilgiri, India80 / 100 Aroma: 7/10 Flavor: 5/5 Value: 4/5 Overall: 8/10
May. 16th, 2016
This tea is the most like a Darjeeling that I've ever had from outside Darjeeling and neighboring areas (like Nepal, Sikkim, etc.). It barely resembled other Nilgiri teas, so I'd recommend it more for people who like Darjeeling than people who like Nilgiri black teas.Read Full Review
Dry leaf looks wiry and robust, inconsistent le...
Style: Assam – Region: Assam, India87 / 100 Aroma: 8/10 Flavor: 5/5 Value: 5/5 Overall: 8/10
Feb. 25th, 2016
This was my favorite broken-leaf Assam that I've ever tried. Surprisingly sweet and nuanced for a broken-leaf tea, and an excellent price, especially given that it's organic certified.Read Full Review
Dry leaf has a pleasant fruity and malty smell, typical for an Assam but smelling sweeter. Although it's a finely broken tea, the s...
Style: Darjeeling Autumnal Flush – Region: Darjeeling, India80 / 100 Aroma: 8/10 Flavor: 4/5 Value: 4/5 Overall: 8/10
Feb. 16th, 2016
This tea is subtly different from other Darjeelings. The leaf is big and looks more like a Wuyi oolong than anything from Darjeeling. The aroma is rich and deep, notes of caramel and malt, a hint of the characteristic fruity/floral/vegetal notes, more typical for an autumnal flush Darjeeling.Read Full Review
Upon pouring the wate...
Style: Irish Breakfast – Region: Assam, India60 / 100 Aroma: 3/10 Flavor: 4/5 Value: 4/5 Overall: 7/10
Feb. 11th, 2016
This is a moderately tasty, smooth, full tea--especially for a store brand; but then again, Trader Joe's has surprised me in a pleasant way with most of their selections. It's one of the few black teas I've tried where the taste is a lot fuller than the aroma. Read Full Review
Not quite a match for a real Irish tea such as Connem...
Style: Darjeeling Black Tea – Region: Darjeeling, India43 / 100 Aroma: 5/10 Flavor: 2/5 Value: 2/5 Overall: 4/10
Feb. 11th, 2016
My daughter brought this tea back from a trip to England, so my "value" rating may be biased by the excessive price she paid in a souvenir store. Read Full Review
In short: not the best nor the worst tea I've had...tolerable..slightly below average. The flavor isn't bad, but isn't strong enough, and it just doesn't have a lot of ...
Style: Darjeeling Autumnal Flush – Region: Darjeeling, India77 / 100 Aroma: 8/10 Flavor: 4/5 Value: 4/5 Overall: 7/10
Jan. 25th, 2016
I liked this tea, but I would not describe it as "thunder"; it's too mellow. Following the rumbling sound analogy, it would be more like "a natural-gas-powered bus goes by", but I guess that doesn't sound quite as sexy.Read Full Review
Dry leaf has a strong aroma, mostly nutty, suggesting sweetness. The aroma suggests warmth.
Style: Darjeeling Autumnal Flush – Region: Darjeeling, India83 / 100 Aroma: 8/10 Flavor: 5/5 Value: 5/5 Overall: 7/10
Jan. 25th, 2016
This was a dark, rich, smooth, and naturally sweet tea with a mysterious pungent aroma, which changed its character a lot resteeping.Read Full Review
Dry leaf is a fairly uniform brown, and has a strong and intriguing aroma, malty and suggesting sweetness, but very fresh and light.
As I pour the water, immediately a strong fruit...
Style: Chai / Spiced Tea – Region: Assam, India83 / 100 Aroma: 9/10 Flavor: 4/5 Value: 4/5 Overall: 8/10
Jan. 23rd, 2016
Chai is not my go to flavor, but sometimes it really hits the spot. This chai tea is the best I've found at our local grocery. It's my husband's favorite.Read Full Review
Style: Assam – Region: India57 / 100 Aroma: 5/10 Flavor: 3/5 Value: 3/5 Overall: 6/10
Jan. 20th, 2016
The last Assam purchased was with Wagh Bakri India, and it is truly strong and refreshing. The only problem is that there is a report out by Green Peace about "Trouble Brewing" and pesticides used by growers in India. This company and a few other popular brands are listed, so we decide to try organic. Choice has some ...Read Full Review
Style: Darjeeling Second Flush – Region: Darjeeling, India77 / 100 Aroma: 7/10 Flavor: 4/5 Value: 5/5 Overall: 7/10
Jan. 13th, 2016
Every now and then I encounter a Darjeeling that only seems to shine when paired with the right foods, and this was one. The first couple times I drank it, it was easy to overlook, but when I paired it with a spicy coconut curry soup I made, it seemed to take on a completely different character.Read Full Review
Dry leaf is brown a...
Style: Darjeeling Second Flush – Region: Darjeeling, India70 / 100 Aroma: 7/10 Flavor: 3/5 Value: 4/5 Overall: 7/10
Jan. 7th, 2016
This was a singular tea that was highly unlike any other teas I've tried. Minimalist in aesthetic, I can see this one appealing to people who like delicate white teas, and it tasted more like a white tea than other black teas. It's not my favorite sort of tea, but I found it intriguing with every sip, and drinking it...Read Full Review
Style: Darjeeling Autumnal Flush – Region: Darjeeling, India97 / 100 Aroma: 10/10 Flavor: 5/5 Value: 5/5 Overall: 9/10
Jan. 3rd, 2016
Wow. Udyan tea recently sent me some samples, and they are of impressive quality. This is the first sample I'm reviewing, and only the second tea I've ever tried from Castleton estate. It got my attention immediately as a top-quality tea.Read Full Review
The dry leaf of this tea is explosively aromatic and the aroma is extraordin...
Style: Tulsi / Holy Basil Tea – Region: India80 / 100 Aroma: 8/10 Flavor: 5/5 Value: 3/5 Overall: 8/10
Dec. 29th, 2015
This was my first experience with Tulsi or Holy Basil. I was extremely impressed. The aroma is warm and welcoming with hints of earth, cinnamon, and spices. The flavor is reminiscent of a spearmint tea with spices and perhaps cardamon and cloves. The flavor is well rounded and very enjoyable. Read Full Review
I haven't had it enou...
Style: Black Tea – Region: Assam, India73 / 100 Aroma: 7/10 Flavor: 4/5 Value: 3/5 Overall: 8/10
Nov. 29th, 2015
I thought this a typical, middle-of-the-road Assam of good quality. but not mind-blowing. Good for people who value smoothness in a full-bodied tea.Read Full Review
Dry leaf has a mild fruity aroma. Brewed cup is very smooth, but rich and full-bodied. Aroma is predominately fruity, but also malty, with the fruitiness resembling ...
Style: Silver Needle – Region: Darjeeling, India93 / 100 Aroma: 9/10 Flavor: 5/5 Value: 5/5 Overall: 9/10
Nov. 16th, 2015
I thought this an exceptional tea, probably the best white tea I've ever sampled.Read Full Review
Another lost review that I somehow missed posting.
The leaf of this tea is wonderfully fragrance, with an aroma completely distinct from both Chinese silver needle teas, and the very different variants of them I've tried from Africa...
