Sessa Estate Winey Assam from Chado Tea

Style: Assam – Region: Assam, India

85 / 100 Aroma: 8/10 Flavor: 5/5 Value: 5/5
Jul. 28th, 2021

The aroma is nice, with a subtle sweetness, earning the 'winey' designation. The liquor brewed (five minutes) to a dark brown. Solid Assam taste with a slight tangy after taste that stays on the tongue. This tea might pair well with milk or sugar.

Kumaon Black Tea from Chado Tea

Style: Black Tea – Region: India

70 / 100 Aroma: 7/10 Flavor: 4/5 Value: 4/5
Jul. 27th, 2021

Pleasant mild aroma. The liquor medium honey color. Flavor is good, this tea would probably be overwhelmed with the addition of sugar or milk. Easy to sip and enjoy.

Steep Organic Pure Green Decaffeinated Tea from Bigelow Tea

Style: Green Tea – Region: ?????

42 / 100 Aroma: 5/10 Flavor: 2/5 Value: 3/5
Jul. 19th, 2021

After my experiences with other teas in the Steep line, I'm a little disappointed in this tea. It's not terrible, though.

The dry tea smells like dusty hay, vegetal, but otherwise nondescript.

The brewing tea smells grassy, but the aroma is a bit weak. There's also a sort of "shrimp" note that I've detected in ot...

Organic Herbal Supplement: Detox Cleansing Blend from Trader Joe's

87 / 100 Aroma: 8/10 Flavor: 5/5 Value: 5/5
Jul. 18th, 2021

With similar coloration of the outer box, as well as ingredients, I suspect this is the Trader Joe's imitation of Yogi's "DeTox" product. However, I can't compare the two directly, since I haven't (yet) tried the Yogi version. Still, this is the best wellness/medicinal tea I've had to date, one of the best herbal te...

Organice Fukamushi Cha from Upton Tea Imports

Style: Green Tea – Region: Japan

75 / 100 Aroma: 9/10 Flavor: 3/5 Value: 3/5
Jul. 9th, 2021

This is a new one for me - a fukamushi tea. It looks like a bancha, but according to Upton's website fukamushi is its own category. A websearch shows me that it is a moderately to fully steamed green tea, usually a sencha. This has a wonderful earthy, fresh woodlands aroma. The taste is light and leafy, with a fair...

Harney & Sons Yuzu Sencha from Harney and Sons

Style: Flavored Green Tea – Region: ?????

60 / 100 Aroma: 6/10 Flavor: 4/5 Value: 3/5
Jul. 5th, 2021

This is a light sencha with a little fruit flavor to it. Yuzu is similar to lime, but this did not have a strong citrus taste. I bet it would be good iced. A pleasant tea.

Typhoo hard-sells to appreciators of strong tea with what appears to be their newest offering, straightforwardly titled Extra Strong, with this verbiage on the side of the package: "The most hardcore quality teas from estates in India and Africa, wrestled from the plant and blended together. Deep. Bold. Strong. Th...

Jun. 19th, 2021

This is a great classic black tea! It’s not super unique, it is pretty standard and it’s great for what it is! It is not bitter or astringent at all, it is smooth and thick bodied. I would definitely drink this again!

71 / 100 Aroma: 6/10 Flavor: 4/5 Value: 5/5
Jun. 17th, 2021

With a name like this, I certainly didn't expect anything but orange flavor. However, this is the rare tea I've tried where the dry-bag, in-cup and wet-bag scents all were *much* stronger on the main flavoring than the actual taste. That's not necessarily a bad thing in this case, as all three modes of inhalation yi...

Premium Tea Decaffeinated from Bigelow Tea

Jun. 13th, 2021

This tea came from a motel. That isn't surprising, considering that the Bigelow website for the product offers 48-bag boxes and cases thereof, as if targeting the food-service market. I've gotten the regular version of this (which is mediocre too) in motels as well as on airplanes.

For a decaf tea, Premium Decaf w...

Decaffeinated Green Tea from Great Value

Style: Green Tea – Region: ?????

14 / 100 Aroma: 1/10 Flavor: 1/5 Value: 2/5
Jun. 11th, 2021

Quite simply, this is one of the worst teas I've tried. For starters, it has no dry-bag aroma at all. I suppose that's better than a noxious smell, since it's basically the scent of the teabag itself. Then the in-cup and wet-bag scents resembled a balanced blend of very faint green tea with wet paper. Something abo...

Jun. 7th, 2021

Back to traveling with motel stays again this year, and back to finding their teas I haven't rated yet! As always, I'll bring an extra bag home to try in my well water for consistency in rating, so that bad local water doesn't affect a tea's rating unduly.

The concept behind "Green Tea with Lemon" left me with a s...

Wonderful aroma, with a slight sweetness. The liquor brews to a dark brown. The flavor is solid Assam, no after taste or hints of anything but tea. I will buy this again.

The aroma is classic Assam with a hint of fruit (peach for me). The liquor is a pleasant dark brown. The taste is good, with a slight sweet after taste that lingers for a moment.

May. 26th, 2021

Imagine if Lipton black tea were actually really good, how it should taste. This is that. 1894 is one of the original Murchie's teas from nearly 130 years ago, first blended by their founder in Victorian-era Vancouver. It's a simple, straightforward, unpretentious mix of good-quality Ceylon and Assam, with both the ...

94 / 100 Aroma: 9/10 Flavor: 5/5 Value: 5/5
May. 25th, 2021

A mellow and balanced, easy-to-brew tea that had a lot of aromatic complexity, and an overall character somewhat intermediate between large-leaf Assam and Yunnan teas.

The dry leaf, which looks a little darker than in the picture from Yunnan Sourcing's website, has a wiry and kinda dusty appearance, and consists of ...

This tea is very good! It is thick bodied and rich and the flavor is strong without being bitter or astringent. This tea has kind of a chocolatey taste which I really like!

May. 21st, 2021

I found this to be a subdued, but intriguing tea that seemed to have a lot of depth and complexity. Although it doesn't jump out at me, I found that it seemed a little different each time I drank it.

It's also another tea that in many respects resembles some of the large-leaf Assam teas (not just Assamica cultivar, ...

This has a hoity-toity description, claiming that it is the "beverage of choice" at the Palm Court in New York City's Plaza Hotel. I actually went there once, several years ago, and had a cup of tea, which I don't remember as being anything special. Despite the pedigree, this is a fairly ordinary cup of tea - it is s...

May. 5th, 2021

Several better Earl Greys exist in bags, but for the price (around $2.50/20 ct.), it's hard to beat. Dry-bag scent was firm and plain, but pleasant and strong, more so than most bagged Earl Greys. Closer inspection revealed likely why. Even though all the tea was settled at the bag's bottom, each bag itself so far h...

May. 4th, 2021

The aroma is nice and spicy. I like the flavor as well. It was definitely present but not as intense as "ultra" might imply. I didn't sweeten it, but I think it could do well both sweetened or unsweetened depending on one's mood. Overall, this is a solid bagged tea!

Murchie's touts Library Blend as the ideal tea to sip while reading a good book—hence the name. Instead I chugged three of several cups so far while watching a live-streamed volcanic eruption. Does that violate the "spirit" of the brand? ;-)

Library is a green-black mix, one of quite a large inventory of such bl...

This is a wonderful thick bodied tea! It has sort of a milk cocoa smell and it tastes a bit chocolatey as well. It has a mild sweet taste and it’s just really amazing! It is so smooth and not astringent or bitter at all
