Jan. 20th, 2016

A beautiful blend. I love rose green tea and I thought this one was exceptional. It's one of the best blended or flavored green teas I've had.

The dry leaf of this smells wonderful and balanced...I can actually smell the tea, usually rose overpowers base teas, especially green teas. The tea smells light and vegeta...

Nov. 25th, 2015

A smooth, creamy tea where the mint aroma is more evident than the base tea. Resteeps very well.

Sampled at the Starbucks in Newark, Delaware.

This is the tea that replaced, or corresponds fairly closely with, the old Tazo Zen, the combination of green tea with spearmint and lemon-scented herbs. Neither tea is a...

Oct. 26th, 2014

The third tea I had the pleasure of trying with the otherworldly breakfast served in the Hotel Alt-Görlitz in Görlitz, Germany. Very good, and an artful blend that was perfectly balanced.

The ingredient list not only shows that this contains only green tea and lemon myrtle, but lists that lemon myrtle is 20% of t...

Oct. 26th, 2014

A good genmaicha for a low price, a great everyday tea. Dry leaf has a lot of popped rice kernels in the mix, and has a mild, pleasingly toasty aroma.

Brews up a full-bodied cup with a bold flavor, with a light bitterness, light savory (umami) presence, and slight sourness. The base tea comes through a bit in the ...

I finally got a chance to try something from DavidsTea, but...erm. Eh. This is not my cup of tea. More like the spice is wrong, and the price is wrong too.

I opened the bag, and the dry leaf smells just like cinnamon, if I really concentrate, I get a hint of orange, nothing else...completely overpowering any smel...

Jun. 3rd, 2014

Wow. An excellent flavored tea for once!

I was intrigued to try this tea, in large part because TeaVivre tends to focus on traditional unflavored teas.

The leaf has a strong aroma of peach, and I notice little else, neither jasmine nor the base tea, but the peach smells rich and natural, like dried peaches rathe...

Apr. 8th, 2014

A disappointing blend that just didn't seem to work. This was one of three samples my parents received as a gift. I had the opportunity to sample them recently.

One of my mild pet peeves is when a company labels something "cherry blossom" and then it tastes like cherry fruit, rather than blossoms.

I opened the ...

Style: Genmaicha – Region: ?????

73 / 100 Aroma: 7/10 Flavor: 4/5 Value: 4/5 Overall: 7/10
Apr. 5th, 2014

An above-average genmaicha, with a bolder green tea presence and less rice. The base tea is smooth, fruity, and less vegetal than typical for Japanese green teas.

The dry tea bag, which is a flat paper bag filled with relatively intact whole leaf tea, didn't smell great, but as soon as I poured water over it, a ver...

Mar. 25th, 2014

Of all of Tazo's teas, I think this one is the most changed from the flat tea bag version to the full leaf version. It's vaguely recognizable but I find, while I hated the old version, this was quite pleasant to drink.

The first cup, which I steeped about 2 minutes (and it was plenty strong) was a rich golden color...

Mar. 23rd, 2014

I must preface this review by noting that I tend not to like blueberry-flavored anything. Why am I trying this then? I like trying new things, and I periodically like trying things that I'm expecting not to like, because sometimes I am surprised.

With this one, I wasn't surprised.

Mar. 23rd, 2014

Thank you Kelsey for giving me this one.

The tea bag is pretty flat and aromaless. Upon brewing though, a light peppermint aroma comes out, relatively mild. The base tea, which I think is a green tea, actually really comes out in the aroma. It smells sort of like an okay but not great sencha.

Mar. 22nd, 2014

An impressive tea--not the sort of blend that I tend to ever like, and I found this quite pleasant.

I found it really interesting that Bare Tea released an apple-flavored tea, since I thought their masala chai actually had an uncanny apple flavor to it. This tea does remind me a bit of that one.

Tasted a pre-brewed sample at the Philadelphia Coffee and Tea Festival; I have been rather late at posting my review, but I wrote up the review some time ago.

Aroma is intensely of sweet almonds, like marzipan candy, but flavor is sour, and there is considerable astringency.

I tasted the almond most of all, and d...

Dec. 18th, 2013

I used to drink this brand a long time ago, and I liked it quite a lot. I recently had the opportunity to sample a tea bag of this particular tea again. It's just how I remember it--and very enjoyable.

Teabag has a strong aroma of toasted rice, suggestive of popcorn. Brews a light greenish-brown cup that is very ...

Nov. 22nd, 2013

I sampled this from a friend's house, a very fresh box that we newly opened, and I disliked it, so I know the issue was the quality of the tea rather than freshness.

This is a rather innocuous, although boring tea. The flavor is pleasant but the aroma is weak and muddled. Brews a clear light yellow color.

This is not the sort of tea I would normally enjoy, but given how much I love Ahmad tea, I was really curious and had to try it, and was surprised that I like it a lot more than similar berry-flavored green teas.

It really does smell like blueberries, which I actually didn't like. I love blueberries but I don't par...

Sep. 26th, 2013

Dry leaf has a potent, cereal-like aroma.

First infusion brews a hazy, pale golden cup...it almost looks like there's a tiny bit of iridescent dust on top of the tea's surface.

Flavor is mild but delightful...sweet, crisp, and with a hint of a fruitiness that I can only describe as reminiscent of cola. It sort o...

Brews a hazy yellow-green color. A lot of fine, granular particles sink to the bottom of the cup.

This tastes mostly like a low-grade green tea...the ginger is weak. Nearly all tea-herb blends and herbal teas containing ginger in their name, which I've tried, have been stronger than this. The ginger is noticeable...

Aug. 30th, 2013

This was a very good genmaicha; the base is a dark, wiry green tea, seems like a sencha. Interestingly, I tried it fairly soon after Octavia's genmaicha, which is my current favorite; the two teas are like night and day. This one brews up a very clear, golden-colored cup. Octavia's is much pricier and I think has a ...

Warning: this flavored tea is noticeably sweetened with Stevia.

It brews up a deep purple color with a slight grayish ting...

Jun. 26th, 2013

Most genmaicha is more or less similar and I often find it hard to judge them. This was not true of this tea--it was completely different, and quickly became my favorite example of this style of tea.

Without a doubt the most aromatic genmaicha that I've ever tried. The base tea has a stronger presence, and more di...

Jun. 12th, 2013

This one was a bit odd.

The combination of lavender and sencha, oddly produces a smell similar to fruit loops. It's also a smell I associate a bit with soap or shampoo.

I brewed briefly as recommended (1 minute), and the tea was a bit weak for my tastes. I tried steeping 3 minutes, because this brings out more ...

Mar. 13th, 2013

A pleasant, perfectly drinkable tea that is dirt cheap. Although I didn't think it was great, it had few objectionable qualities and I actually think it is a pretty good buy. It seems to have much more toasted rice than tea leaf, and has a bitterness and sourness that I normally don't encounter in either genmaicha or...

Mar. 8th, 2013

For some reason, I did not expect to like this one, I think in large part because I've had pretty bad experiences with finely-broken green tea in tea bags, and I also don't see Tulsi's characteristic flavor and aroma blending as well with green teas as I think it does with black tea.

Although I still wasn't crazy ab...

I find it interesting that this tea is sometimes presented as green and other times presented as oolong. The base is pouchong or bao zhong, and it is flavored with bergamot as Earl Grey tea is...it is NOT the same as Yongchun Fo Shou, the other tea called Bergamot Oolong, a tea I like very much.
