Ceylon Golden Tips Black Tea from What-Cha

Style: Black Tea – Region: Sri Lanka / Ceylon

60 / 100 Aroma: 5/10 Flavor: 3/5 Value: 4/5 Overall: 6/10
Feb. 12th, 2015

The aroma of the fuzzy leaves is iconically a Ceylon, it is brisk and bright, but it also has notes of oak wood, roasted peanuts, distant flowers, malt, and fruit. The fruit notes are muscatel and cherry, in fact, this tea reminds me of a three way dance between an Assam, Ceylon, and Darjeeling, how fascinating! The ar...

French Breakfast from Golden Moon Tea

Style: Ceylon Black Tea – Region: Sri Lanka / Ceylon

77 / 100 Aroma: 7/10 Flavor: 4/5 Value: 4/5 Overall: 8/10
Apr. 27th, 2014

The aroma of this tea is bright, bold, and malty with a hint of pecans and dried leaves. Very much a standard black tea indeed!

This tea has a nice mild briskness, just enough to wake you up but not too much, no need to worry about your moth turning inside out. There is a bold malty and oak wood taste that fades to ...

Greenfield Estate Ceylon Black Tea from Arbor Teas

Style: Ceylon Black Tea – Region: Sri Lanka / Ceylon

90 / 100 Aroma: 10/10 Flavor: 4/5 Value: 4/5 Overall: 9/10
Mar. 29th, 2014

The aroma is exceptionally sweet and fruity, blending notes of fresh grapes, scuppernongs, and a hint of fresh figs. There is also a very mild note of roses and malt, giving this tea a delightfully complex aroma. This might be the best smelling Black Ceylon that I have had the pleasure of sniffing.

The taste of this...

Caramel Tea from Culinary Teas

Style: Flavored Black Tea – Region: Sri Lanka / Ceylon

73 / 100 Aroma: 7/10 Flavor: 4/5 Value: 3/5 Overall: 8/10
Jan. 26th, 2014

The aroma is very sweet with notes of burnt sugar and vanilla with a hint of black tea, it very much so smells like tea and candy. Once brewed the aroma becomes quite malty and rich with notes of toffee and creamy sweetness.

The taste is pretty intense tasting almost more like a caramel mochiatto than tea! Strong no...

Idulgashinna Ceylon Green Organic from Single Origin Teas

Style: Green Tea – Region: Uva, Sri Lanka

80 / 100 Aroma: 8/10 Flavor: 4/5 Value: 3/5 Overall: 9/10
Oct. 18th, 2013

The aroma of this tea is brisk, citrusy, and invigorating, there are also notes of fresh grass. Once the leaves are brewed there is vegetal aroma that mixes with the citrus.

The taste is delicious! Honey sweet with lychee and orange blossoms. A very sweet tea for one with a vegetal aroma!

Blueberry from Adagio Teas

Style: Fruit Black Tea – Region: Sri Lanka / Ceylon

80 / 100 Aroma: 9/10 Flavor: 4/5 Value: 3/5 Overall: 8/10
May. 30th, 2013

I am extremely picky when it comes to blueberry flavored tea, I want it to taste like ripe, sweet, blueberries and not tart unpleasant fruit. So many teas make the tart mistake but not this one! The aroma when opening the package is blueberries all the way, an added plus when you actually see blueberries in the leaves....

Cream from Adagio Teas

Style: Flavored Black Tea – Region: Sri Lanka / Ceylon

77 / 100 Aroma: 8/10 Flavor: 4/5 Value: 3/5 Overall: 8/10
May. 30th, 2013

This is such a decadent tea! Delicious and bold the aroma is that of rich, sweet cream and the taste matches. A great dessert tea and an even better breakfast tea (if you want something sweet first thing).

I would not recommend this tea if you are not a fan of sweets!

Chocolate Chai from Adagio Teas

Style: Chai / Spiced Tea – Region: Sri Lanka / Ceylon

67 / 100 Aroma: 7/10 Flavor: 3/5 Value: 3/5 Overall: 7/10
Apr. 12th, 2013

This chai is not bad but it is also not very overwhelming. I was hoping for more of a rich spicy chai with a chocolate zing but it was mainly a mild chai with more chocolate aroma than taste.

Guanabana from Adagio Teas

Style: Fruit Black Tea – Region: Sri Lanka / Ceylon

90 / 100 Aroma: 10/10 Flavor: 4/5 Value: 4/5 Overall: 9/10
Apr. 12th, 2013

This just might be my new favorite from Adagio! Wonderfully floral and fruity with just a slight tart taste...just like guanabana fruit. It tastes good black or with a bit of sugar and milk.

Chocolate Chip from Adagio Teas

Style: Flavored Black Tea – Region: Sri Lanka / Ceylon

67 / 100 Aroma: 8/10 Flavor: 3/5 Value: 4/5 Overall: 5/10
Apr. 12th, 2013

The tea leaves smell very chocolaty but sadly I felt like the tea just tasted burnt. Also tastes a bit bitter like dark chocolate which I liked and felt complimented the tea taste. Wish it did not have the burnt taste or it would be a favorite!

Toasted Sesame from Adagio Teas

Style: Flavored Black Tea – Region: Sri Lanka / Ceylon

43 / 100 Aroma: 3/10 Flavor: 2/5 Value: 4/5 Overall: 4/10
Dec. 2nd, 2012

The aroma of the leaves and the tea itself are very bland, no toasted sesame at all just a vague burnt smell.

Sadly I found this tea disappointing, it tastes like a decent black tea but there is not sesame taste except for a vague burnt taste. I was hoping for a bold sesame taste but did not get that.
