Fusion Green & White Tea from Stash Tea

Style: Green and White Blend – Region: ?????

80 / 100 Aroma: 8/10 Flavor: 4/5 Value: 4/5
Jul. 21st, 2024

I enjoyed this tea! I brewed it at 175°F and let it steep several minutes with the mug covered. It did not, thankfully, turn bitter. The second cup’s flavor wasn’t as strong but still had a flavor I could taste. Loose leaf tea is still better, but for a quick bag of tea this is nice.

Thurbo Estate Second Flush FTGFOP1 Darjeeling from Upton Tea Imports

Style: Darjeeling Second Flush – Region: Darjeeling, India

45 / 100 Aroma: 5/10 Flavor: 3/5 Value: 2/5
Jul. 18th, 2024

This is a very mild, bland tea. Lemon and sugar overwhelms it, but it is decent on its own or with a splash of milk - then it is pleasant and bready, with some mild tannins coming in to the mouthfeel. Priced too high given the quality, imo.

Here's another tea that has been around a long time, but somehow, I haven't tried nor reviewed it until now! A restaurant in Minnesota served this tea on good water, and I got a second bag to take home and chug as well.

Both times, the impression I got was: this is a pleasantly good, herb-dusted cinnamon infusio...

Jul. 5th, 2024

Another in an assortment of Rituals teas I got from a couple of motels this spring, their chamomile offering made a very nice impression too. With only a very few exceptions, most chamomile teas in my experience differ very little, and when they do, tend to drop off markedly because of lack of freshness. Food-service...

Jun. 27th, 2024

Seldom have I sampled a tea with such a gap between aroma (or lack thereof) and taste. It's a vast chasm, really. The Grand Canyon might be a good analog with another several million years of erosion, widening and deepening.

This was a motel pickup somewhere out on the Great Plains. I don't recall where. I had a...

Jun. 23rd, 2024

Here's another new Rituals tea for me (and this website), also first sampled at the Days Inn in Hays, KS. As usual, and even though Hays water isn't bad, I also hauled a bag home to try on my well water for fair comparison with other ratings.

Upon ripping open the foil-lined package, the smell that greeted my nos...

Jun. 18th, 2024

As with most Farmer Brothers teas, I got this at a motel. Some motels have nice management who offers tea, and a most-welcomed minority of them offer more than only straight Lipton, or than the cheapest possible store brand like Great Value. When they do, and it's reasonably good, I try to commend the staff directly ...

Orange Flavored Jasmine Green Tea from Rituals

Jun. 6th, 2024

This peculiar combination came from a Days Inn in Hays, KS, and tasted really nice on their water, so I brought a bag home to try as well. Rituals Teas in general seem to perform above most food-service offerings, and this was no exception.

The type made me curious, because I've never seen orange and jasmine paired...

Jun. 5th, 2024

This tea is really good! It has a nice bready aroma and a delicate but full bodied flavor with chocolatey hints. The only reason I'm not giving it an even higher score is that it is a bit basic, however I still love basic teas when they are really high quality and good like this one. This tea is not too astringent or b...

There is not much flavor here, but there are no unpleasant flavors or aromas either. I have certainly had stronger gunpowder teas, but this one is very easy to drink, and offered at a low price.

May. 31st, 2024

This is an ok chai, the aroma is nice. It seems the cardamom and cloves are the 2 spices that most come through in this blend, I wish there was a little more flavor and aroma. It's a bit astringent and I would probably prefer this with milk. It's a little thin too, it's definitely not my favorite cup of chai but it was...

I love teas with a toasted flavor like this. This tea is certainly a great example of a good hojicha. This tea is sweet and thick bodied, slightly astringent in a good way, and of course has that wonderful toasted flavor. The aroma is very nice and also has the toasted smell. This tea is yet another old tea I'm reviewi...

I really enjoy this tea a lot! The aroma is very pleasant, it kind of smells like pumpkin seeds. The taste is the best part, it is very smooth and thick bodied and not too astringent or bitter at all! It tastes like raisins and pumpkin seeds to me. It is a very comforting cup of tea. It is still being sold today and it...

May. 30th, 2024

I really like this tea! It is thick bodied and flavorful, although it is just slightly too astringent for me. For me personally oolongs are not my absolute favorite type, but I can tell this is a good one. It's very aromatically interesting and it has not gotten bad with age, this is another old tea from around 2017 th...

May. 30th, 2024

I absolutely love this tea! It's full bodied and aromatic. The aroma is bready (like most black teas smell to me) but also a bit fruity like raisins, and also Indian, like cardamon or something. The tea is perfect because I'm sensitive to astringency and it isn't too astringent, but it has just enough astringency to be...

This tea is really great! The taste is very smooth, it's not too astringent or bitter. The aroma is very nice, it has a slight dank pu erh smell, which is interesting and I like it. The aroma is mild, most likely though because this tea I am tasting is old (2018) and was in my pantry for a while. For a tea that is not ...

May. 28th, 2024

I was very pleasantly surprised by this. I just finished disrespecting another fruit flavored tea from Upton, so I was not expecting much, but this is, as advertised, very fruity and tropical. It is made with sunflower, papaya, maracuja, and pineapple (both natural bits and in the form of flavoring). The aroma is qu...

My review here is decidedly mixed. Since this isn't a bad tea, folks who are interested in the fair-trade/organic aspects may find this a good alternative to the relative dearth of such certifications among Irish Breakfast bagged teas. Being less refined, more of a troglodyte, I just want tea to taste good regardless...

This tea seems pretty good quality and has a nice, but mild green tea aroma. The price is reasonable and the tea is good enough that I think the value is fair. It tastes like a classic green tea however it is slightly too bitter and astringent for my taste. I have a lower threshold for these qualities than some and it ...

With a name like mango indica, I don't know if I am supposed to smoke this or drink it (lol). The aroma is nice, strong, and fruity, so I give them credit for that. But the flavor is dominated by - surprise, surprise - Lifesavers candy-type artificial fruit flavor. When will I learn? It is time for me to stop purcha...

May. 23rd, 2024

This is pretty robust for a Ceylon tea, with some tannin bite and a woody aroma. It was quite a bit better with milk than with lemon and sugar, which surprised me. With just a little vegan milk added, it makes a very good breakfast style tea. My intention in buying this was to mix it with a Darjeeling for iced tea (...

Disclaimer: I am trying this tea that has been in my cupboard for many years, possibly up to 10, so this rating may not be a completely accurate representation of what this tea would be like fresh. Black tea often mellows with age and loses aroma, and I would say this tea is certainly mellow but yet I still like it. It...

I really enjoy this tea! Disclaimer: I'm cleaning out my old tea cabinet and found this tea from 2014, so it is 10 years old now. Despite its old age this tea stayed very pleasant tasting, it was mellow and warm and comforting. The black tea itself mellowed out which I don't mind, and the spices like cardamon and cinna...

I decided to try something different. Instead of getting Upton's iced tea blend (which I like a lot) that is made from Ceylons and Darjeelings, why not get some Ceylons and Darjeelings and mix them together? This way I can also get to know the individual teas. This one did not let me down. It is on the mild side, b...

May. 21st, 2024

This is a fruit tisane, nothing groaty about it. It is pretty tangy in the nostrils. The flavor is hibiscus mixed with blueberry and strawberry. It turns out that this is made of hibiscus, grapes, elderberries, blueberries, and flavoring. An enjoyable fruit tisane that would be probably be nice on ice.
