Wild Monsoon from teakruthi

Style: Ceylon Black Tea – Region: Matara, Sri Lanka

87 / 100 Aroma: 9/10 Flavor: 5/5 Value: 3/5 Overall: 9/10
Jan. 12th, 2017

The dry leaf of this consists of big, dark, coarse looking leaves that are slightly curled. There is a mild toasty and chocolatey aroma. The leaf takes up a lot of space, and you need to use quite a lot by volume to get a strong enough cup.

Upon brewing, the aroma is distinct, different from other teas I've tried,...

Southern Malt from teakruthi

Jan. 9th, 2017

The first tea I tried from Teakruthi was excellent and enjoyable, but didn't wow me. This one immediately stood out, from before the first sip, or even just smelling the brewed cup.

The dry leaf has a smell that strongly suggests a savory stew. It's malty with a hint of smoke and spice.

When brewed, wow. This ...

Style: Ceylon Black Tea – Region: Kandy, Sri Lanka

83 / 100 Aroma: 9/10 Flavor: 5/5 Value: 2/5 Overall: 9/10
Jan. 5th, 2017

I went to try this tea first because I got the sense that it seemed the most "classic Ceylon" of Teakruthi's offerings, and it definitely delivered the character I expected. This is a little less like the types of Ceylons served in British traditions though, and more like the type of tea I find consumed in the middle-...

My son visited Tanzania ,and brought back the Green Label Tea for me because he knows I'm an avid tea drinking. It's the best tea I've ever tried. I live in the NYC area and am now searching for a local vendor.

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...

African CTC from Murchie's Tea & Coffee Ltd

Style: Black Tea – Region: ?????

83 / 100 Aroma: 8/10 Flavor: 5/5 Value: 4/5 Overall: 8/10
Dec. 21st, 2016

The dry leaf has a pleasant aroma that is much more complex than typical for CTC teas...there are notes of spice that remind me of Christmas as a child.

Produces a very rich and aromatic cup. Before sipping, the aroma suggests sweetness, being creamy and almost candy-like. But upon sipping, pleasantly bitter. Ful...

Dec. 19th, 2016

So ever since a local shop stopped carrying my favorite teas I haven't really purchased much black tea lately.
I've been impressed with this company's teas so far, and went ahead and added this one to a recent order.

The aroma of the dry, thin, slightly curly leaves is very nice...caramel and maybe a little fresh ...

80 / 100 Aroma: 7/10 Flavor: 4/5 Value: 5/5 Overall: 8/10
Dec. 13th, 2016

I haven't tried many Irish style (Afternoon or Breakfast) teas, so my opinions thereon may not be worth the electrons wasted to paint these letters across your screen. Regardless, I haven't had a bad one yet. Murchie's various black-tea offerings have proven to be right up in the top echelon of any black teas I've ha...

Dec. 12th, 2016

My daughter originally brought a tin of this tea back from her visit to Ireland, as a gift to my wife, and my wife was instantly hooked. She just craves this tea. After trying some I see why. It's her favorite Irish tea, and mine as well (with Murchie's being a close second). In fact, I'd drink more than the few ba...

The regal, royal language on the packaging and website convey an image of heavenly bliss upon being graced with the blessing of having this tea's flavor touch one's tongue. Well, it ain't that spectacular, but this curiously named offering is fairly delicious.

As sometimes is the case, I got an unopened and seale...

Dec. 12th, 2016

You could do worse. I got this as a default black tea served at a local breakfast joint in Tulsa (at least they don't use Lipton like seemingly 99.99999% of everyone else!). Yes, it's richer than Lipton (not hard to accomplish), and not bad overall on the flavor side, but with a rather feeble aroma, both in the bag a...

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...

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.

Nov. 30th, 2016

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...

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...

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.

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.

Nov. 12th, 2016

This offering has been rebranded simply, "Premium Tea".

It offers a rich, dark color and flavor after steeping for 5 minutes instead of the recommended 2, but that does come at the expense of quite noticeably more bitterness than usual for most black teas I've immersed that long. I'm not big on bitterness, nor c...

This was yet another tea I had the opportunity to sample from a variety pack in a hotel. I have never seen this brand for sale in the U.S. It was good, considerably above-average for a simple black tea bag.

A bold and strong tea, not particularly distinctive or remarkable, but good. Aroma is malty with hints of s...

The tea tastes much like Murchie's Afternoon Tea (formerly Empress Afternoon), and also is a blend of black teas from various regions, but has a slightly weaker aroma--hence the slightly lower rating. Regardless, the flavor is similarly rich and full, the body robust, the color dense and dark after a 5-minute bath (wi...
