Ceylon Orange Pekoe from Simpson & Vail

Style: Ceylon Black Tea – Region: Sri Lanka / Ceylon

80 / 100 Aroma: 8/10 Flavor: 4/5 Value: 5/5
Sep. 15th, 2021

The aroma is a medium woodsy. Dark, twisted leaves. The liquor, after a five minute steep, is a very dark brown. Flavor is good, with a mild spicy after taste. This tea will be added to my regular rotation. Easy to sip all day.

Paris from Harney and Sons

Style: Miscellaneous Blend – Region: Blend

80 / 100 Aroma: 8/10 Flavor: 4/5 Value: 5/5
Sep. 15th, 2021

Harney's Paris blend is an interesting and likeable variation on the Earl Grey formula. In addition to bergamot, this has vanilla, black currant, and caramel flavors added to black and oolong teas. It makes for a sweet and festive tea that goes well with milk and sugar.

China Golden Silk Black Organic Tea from Simpson & Vail

Style: Black Tea – Region: ?????

75 / 100 Aroma: 8/10 Flavor: 4/5 Value: 4/5
Sep. 14th, 2021

Beautiful large leaves. The aroma is wood and spice, not pronounced. The liquor is a medium amber after a 5 minute steep. Taste is clean with a slight malt after taste. I'd say this is a good tea for sipping. For me, no sugar or milk needed.

Anniversary Blend Tea Bags from Murchie's Tea & Coffee Ltd

Style: Green and Black Tea Blend – Region: Blend

79 / 100 Aroma: 7/10 Flavor: 4/5 Value: 5/5
Sep. 12th, 2021

Murchie's developed this blend to commemorate their 125th anniversary (1894–2019), and I hope it sticks around.

A blind taste test might elicit a reaction like this: "Really nice black tea blend, but I can't quite place this interesting flavor it has under that." The black tea solidly dominates the green in dry-b...

Yunnan "Black Gold Bi Luo Chun" Black Tea from Yunnan Sourcing

Style: Yunnan Gold – Region: Simao, Yunnan, China

82 / 100 Aroma: 6/10 Flavor: 4/5 Value: 3/5
Sep. 10th, 2021

This tea was quite singular, unlike most of the other teas from Yunnan Sourcing. I thought it was a good tea but it was a bit too much for me. It's strong, both by flavor and caffeine. I am reviewing the Spring Harvest from 2020.

This tea took up a lot less space than most all the other Yunnan Teas I've tried. The d...

Yunnan "Assamica Gold Needle" Black Tea from Yunnan Sourcing

Style: Yunnan Gold – Region: Simao, Yunnan, China

96 / 100 Aroma: 9/10 Flavor: 5/5 Value: 5/5
Sep. 7th, 2021

This was a straightforward tea that I found easy to like; I became a fan from the first sip. It's robust, easy to brew, easy to drink, and pleasing in both flavor and aroma. Overall, it is more flavorful than aromatic though.

The dry leaf is beautiful, a very bright yellow color, not as orangeish as many of these ti...

Jinggu "Da Jin Ya" Camellia Taliensis Black Tea from Yunnan Sourcing

Style: Yunnan Gold – Region: Jinggu, Yunnan, China

95 / 100 Aroma: 9/10 Flavor: 5/5 Value: 5/5
Sep. 5th, 2021

This was a really enjoyable tea that also had a lot of depth and complexity.

The dry leaf is made exclusively of luscious, thick, fuzzy buds that are kinda rolled on themselves; the picture does not really do it justice. Although it seems to be pure buds, they look a bit more mature than on some tippy teas, and they...

84 / 100 Aroma: 9/10 Flavor: 5/5 Value: 4/5
Sep. 4th, 2021

This was a robust green tea that was challenging to brew, but rewarding when I got it right. Thank you to Dewey for sharing this one with me!

The leaf is beautiful, wiry, slightly curly, and diverse in color, from dusty dark green to silvery-gray with a yellowish tinge. It has a potent fragrance, with a hint of camp...

Fruit Aroma Yixing Black Tea from Yunnan Sourcing

Style: Yunnan Red – Region: Jiangsu, China

87 / 100 Aroma: 7/10 Flavor: 4/5 Value: 4/5
Sep. 2nd, 2021

This tea heavily underwhelmed me, and particularly, it was too weak. My favorite aspect of it was the fragrance of the dry leaf, but after that, it disappointed me.

The dry leaf has an unbelievably potent and incredily pleasing aroma. To me it seems more malty than anything else, strong smells of grain and baked goo...

Organic Green Tea from Trader Joe's

61 / 100 Aroma: 5/10 Flavor: 3/5 Value: 4/5
Sep. 2nd, 2021

Landing at a Trader Joe's store in Tucson while on a photography road trip out thataway, I bought a box of this, as a presumably acceptable substitute for some of the truly terrible, off-brand and store-brand (here's looking at you, Great Value) bagged green teas offered at motels and campgrounds. It was, but still fa...
