Powerhouse from SerendipiTea

Style: Herbal Tea – Region: ?????

80 / 100 Aroma: 8/10 Flavor: 4/5 Value: 5/5
Feb. 19th, 2020

This is an organic fruit and spice tisane that is made with apricot, apple, raspberry, orange peel, spearmint, hibiscus, turmeric, black pepper, and rosehips, plus some (organic) apple, raspberry, and orange flavoring. So quite a blend! It is not a typical tart and fruity hibiscus plus fruit flavor mix. The apricot ...

Enticing Chai (Spiced Chai Flavored Black Tea) from Lipton Tea

57 / 100 Aroma: 4/10 Flavor: 4/5 Value: 4/5
Feb. 18th, 2020

In an apparent ode to Back to the Future, Lipton, or at least its corporate boss Unilever, is again referring to this simply as, "Spiced Chai", as of Feb. 2020. Whether this is a renaming of their chai just for food-service purposes, or for keeps across the brand, remains to be seen. I uploaded a photo of the latest ...

Organic Darjeeling Green Tea from Trader Joe's

Style: Darjeeling Green Tea – Region: Darjeeling, India

43 / 100 Aroma: 3/10 Flavor: 3/5 Value: 3/5
Feb. 17th, 2020

Similarly to my review of TJ's Darjeeling white tea, I hope this isn't very representative of Darjeeling greens; for it lacks aroma and flavor. The dry-bag aroma is basically nil, with the in-cup scent only very faint. Only the wet bag has something resembling a smell I would associate with green tea, and it's still ...

Golden Milk Mix from SerendipiTea

Style: Herbal Tea – Region: ?????

70 / 100 Aroma: 8/10 Flavor: 3/5 Value: 4/5
Feb. 17th, 2020

This is an interesting blend of spices that is designed to be infused with milk. I make mine with non-dairy milk, and that may have affected the flavor some. The result is a very hot and spicy tea. Black pepper and chili pepper are the 2 main ingredients, bolstered by some ginger, coconut, cinnamon, and turmeric. I...

Feb. 15th, 2020

Here's another Lipton brand that has been "unretired" as of Feb. 2020. It is available under different-looking packaging in several online stores, as well as via Unilever's food-service page (where I got the photo to be uploaded shortly). Now that I've tried a few of these Lipton herbal and flavored black teas from a...

Koh Samet Sun from SerendipiTea

Style: Herbal Tea – Region: ?????

80 / 100 Aroma: 8/10 Flavor: 5/5 Value: 4/5
Feb. 14th, 2020

This is a simple but charming tisane, made entirely of organic ginger, lemongrass, and orange peel. It is naturally very sweet, and even a teaspoon of honey or sugar makes it taste very sugary. The lemongrass dominates, with the orange and ginger playing supporting roles. I have to take a couple of points off for th...

Feb. 14th, 2020

Despite having a wide spectrum of experiences with TJ's teas (from excellent to revolting...but mostly good), I somehow thought this would be a cheap knockoff and not very high quality. Somewhat surprisingly, while not the best bagged green I've had (that would be an unbranded tea my daughter brought back from Japan)...

Earl Grey Loose Tea from Bigelow Tea

Feb. 13th, 2020

This is the first time I'm trying Bigelow Earl Grey in loose form. I've purchased the teabags in the past, but from other experiences, I know that the loose tea and teabags don't always have the same taste.

My first impression was that, compared to other black earl grey teas I've gotten in tins, this variety has muc...

Feb. 11th, 2020

I commend White2Tea for the attempt at combining white tea with black tea in a cake like this. It was an interesting experiment. But, while the taste really isn't bad, the effect it has on me is very uncomfortable. That also hasn't changed over the years (I've had this cake for a while and have been aging it and period...

Feb. 11th, 2020

I bring news! Whether it's good news or not is up to the reader. This tea, as a brand with the same name, is not retired after all, as of Feb. 2020. Instead, it has found its way to the food-service division of Unilever, Lipton's corporate overlord. I'll upload a photo of its newest packaging separately. I was abl...

41 / 100 Aroma: 6/10 Flavor: 2/5 Value: 2/5
Feb. 10th, 2020

This was my first Darjeeling white tea, and it's about as impressive as sitting through an hour-long staff meeting with a well-advertised, nicely dressed, but ultimately monotonic guest speaker droning on about an uninteresting subject.

At first, I was intrigued. The best part of the experience was the dry-bag ar...

Feb. 9th, 2020

I wasn't feeling well lately. I think I may have caught the flu, which has been going around. I tried a remedy of tea and herbs that often helps me, but it wore of quickly. So, I felt the urge to try some of this white tea, because I remember something I was told by someone regarding white tea being considered medicine...

Style: Lapsang Souchong – Region: Taiwan / Formosa

80 / 100 Aroma: 8/10 Flavor: 4/5 Value: 5/5
Feb. 8th, 2020

As expected the aroma is similar to a pine forest on fire, or a freshly paved road. For those new to lapsing souchong, it might be a bit intimidating. Those who are adverse to trying because of the aroma are missing out on a wonderful cup of tea. The liquor is a deep amber color. The flavor is nice. Once brewed, the bu...

Style: Chai / Spiced Tea – Region: ?????

75 / 100 Aroma: 8/10 Flavor: 4/5 Value: 5/5
Feb. 7th, 2020

I got a coupon from Twinings to replace some decaffeinated Earl Gray, which was really quite awful, and I decided to spend it on this.

The spices were a tad different than other chai tea bags I'd had before. I've had chai in restaurants and have bought tea bags in the Indian sector of a nearby city, and the spices i...

0 / 100 Aroma: 1/10 Flavor: 1/5 Value: 1/5
Feb. 7th, 2020

I suspected something was wrong with the quality (or lack thereof) of this tea when I opened up the tin and there was no scent. (Side note: The best by date isn't for about 2 years, so that's not the issue.) Some teas have a very, very light scent, though. So, I tried to suspend judgment and brewed a cup as the packagi...

Feb. 7th, 2020

Let's play tea detective. This product was a bit perplexing—not because of anything having to do with its own properties, but because it took some digging to find exactly this stuff online. Lipton sells a "Relax" branded chamomile in retail—on its site and in some stores—but I don't know if this is the same stu...

Feb. 6th, 2020

This is not to be confused with the apparently much-better-known Trader Joe's "Harvest Blend" herbal tea, which is a completely different product. Instead, this black tea came in a 10-bag sealed wrapper, tucked into one of four squares of a wooden gift box. The outside paper wrapper of the gift box describes all four...

I love chai overall, so they tend to skew high in my ratings unless they either simply suck, or as in this case, are "just" decent while being overpriced. [Though I was served a couple bags of this tea at a Corner Bakery outlet, I based "value" on the online pricing.] My version came in a rectangular sachet sewn on t...

Jan. 29th, 2020

This gets some good reviews on Upton's website and sells for an above average price, but it didn't do much for me. The aroma is pleasant enough, but the flavor is bland and weak. I can't recommend this one.

Jan. 23rd, 2020

Aroma is very citrus driven with a subtle spice. The flavor is strong in this tea and a single tea bag can support 16 ounces of hot water. I like this tea because it’s almost like having a wild fermented beer with the acid presence. That said, it’s fairly one note.

This tea smells just like a glazed lemon loaf. Really incredible. The flavor is subtle but enjoyable. I’d recommend not using more than 8 ounces to ensure it isn’t too diluted. For the price, this tea is really solid (3 dollars for 20 bags).

I had this tea at a local restaurant (in a bag) and got 2 cups out of 1 bag - even though the restaurant offered me a second bag. It had a slight grassy note but also a pleasant roasted flavor vaguely reminiscent of a barley or genmaicha. I really enjoyed this tea - hot - no lemon - no dairy - no sweetener.

It didn't taste like green tea. It didn't taste like kombucha. It didn't affect me like kombucha, which typically leaves me with a positive feeling. It actually gave me a headache, despite the fact that I've had all the ingredients in this tea separately and never had a negative reaction to any of them. The flavor wasn...

I was astonished by this tea's quality as well as value for its price. One of my friends recently bought this from a Russian market, and he had only recently opened the container so it was very fresh.

The dry leaf though is explosively aromatic. This is by far the most aromatic Ceylon black tea I've ever found in th...

Jan. 9th, 2020

I enjoyed this tea. This tea has a nice light yellowish amber color. Mild in taste with a nice hint of bergamot. Does not linger on the tongue. Milk, cream, or sugar would probably over power this tea.
