Upton China Silver Needle from Upton Tea Imports

Style: Silver Needle – Region: China

35 / 100 Aroma: 4/10 Flavor: 2/5 Value: 2/5
Mar. 19th, 2019

This is a nice tea to look at, but the flavor is weak and bland. A little nutty taste. No plans to get more of this.

Panyang Congou Select from Upton Tea Imports

75 / 100 Aroma: 7/10 Flavor: 4/5 Value: 4/5
Mar. 19th, 2019

I had one called China Panyang Congou from Upton, which is also currently unavailable. I'm guessing this is the same thing. It is very enjoyable and tastes different from most of the teas I can think of. There is a pronounced barley/pumpernickel flavor. I've been brewing beer lately and this reminded me of the taste...

Upton Mist Forest Naturally Flavored Colombian Green Tea from Upton Tea Imports

Style: Flavored Green Tea – Region: Colombia

65 / 100 Aroma: 8/10 Flavor: 3/5 Value: 2/5
Mar. 19th, 2019

Colombian green tea with pear guava and soursop, and apparently some added flavor. Very floral, sweet, and fruity - almost candy-like. This would be nice in the summertime, but I probably won't get it again because of the price.

Very good. The gunpowder tea is a touch smoky and that helps it mix well with the mint.

More floral and perfumey than a typical EG. It is not Upton's best but it is a worthwhile tea.

75 / 100 Aroma: 8/10 Flavor: 4/5 Value: 4/5
Mar. 19th, 2019

A good Ceylon tea that is similar to mainstream teas like Tetley, only better. A bit more body and smoke to it. I hope this is offered again at some point.

A good all-purpose, pretty mellow black tea. This blend of Keemun, Ceylon, and Darjeeling is a notch above supermarket teas.

A smooth and enjoyable tea. Not as hearty as claimed, but it is not wimpy either. Good with milk or with lemon and sugar. Worth the bargain price.

75 / 100 Aroma: 8/10 Flavor: 4/5 Value: 4/5
Mar. 19th, 2019

I usually enjoy Upton's British style tea blends and this is no exception. The mix of malty Assam with a lightly smoky Yunnan makes a super all-around tea. It is good with milk, or in a masala chai, and lemon and sugar, while eccentric, also works.

Green Tea with Mint from Bigelow Tea

Style: Green Tea with Mint – Region: ?????

40 / 100 Aroma: 5/10 Flavor: 2/5 Value: 2/5
Mar. 19th, 2019

The green tea smells stronger than it tastes. There's nothing offensive about it, but neither is it satisfying. I rather suspect that Bigelow's green teas are blended for those that drink green tea for purported health benefits rather than the flavor. It's mild and not bitter, but it lacks any brightness or vegetal com...

Sweet Dreams Herbal Tea from Bigelow Tea

Style: Chamomile Blend – Region: ?????

53 / 100 Aroma: 6/10 Flavor: 3/5 Value: 3/5
Mar. 14th, 2019

I've had a few knockoffs of this lately, so I figured I'd review the real thing. Sweet Dreams is basically chamomile tea for people that don't like chamomile. When dry, the dominant aroma is spearmint. After steeping, it's a subdued mintiness with a bit of cinnamon and citrus.

The flavor complements the aroma and se...

Rosehip, Hibiscus & Cherry from Ahmad Tea

Style: Herbal Tea – Region: Blend

60 / 100 Aroma: 7/10 Flavor: 3/5 Value: 3/5
Mar. 13th, 2019

Rosehip and hibiscus is my favorite herbal combination, so when I decided to try Ahmad's herbal teas, this was a natural for me.

The dry tea smells like cherry juice and sawdust. Brewed, the cherry is still prominent, but the rosehips and hibiscus add to the aroma. The cherry flavor adds too much sweetness to the fl...

62 / 100 Aroma: 4/10 Flavor: 4/5 Value: 5/5
Mar. 13th, 2019

This is an above-average, but not outstanding, bagged green tea available at a price that's hard to top for a non-store brand (about $8 for a 100-count box online, or at stores such as Wal-Mart). Fortunately, I procured a fairly new, sealed 100-ct box at an estate sale for a buck, so *my* value was unrepresentatively ...

Darjeeling Tea from Tradition

Style: Darjeeling Black Tea – Region: Darjeeling, India

88 / 100 Aroma: 9/10 Flavor: 4/5 Value: 5/5
Mar. 12th, 2019

The oversized bags contain nearly 3g of medium-sized (for loose leaf tea) broken leaf pieces. It's definitely not a typical Darjeeling, though. Most Darjeelings are less oxidized than other black teas and tend to have more vegetal or floral aroma notes. This one's different. There's no green apparent on the leaves and ...

Mar. 11th, 2019

This is ALDI's recreation of Bigelow Sweet Dreams. The balance is a bit different, but the same flavors are there.

The profile is chamomile and mint. The dominant mint is spearmint rather than peppermint and there's a little bit of sourness from the hibiscus. The menthol coolness appears in the finish along with som...

Mar. 9th, 2019

Well, I hate to be in such disagreement with Alex Zorach, who knows so much more about tea than me, but my reaction to this went something like this: "blekh." You need to be careful with this. Use a lot and steep it for a while and it will be harsh and bitter. But a modest amount and short steeping time makes a somewh...

Mar. 9th, 2019

This is called an Irish breakfast, but for my tastebuds it seemed closer to an English breakfast or even a mainstream prebagged tea. It is pretty versatile and mellow. It goes best with milk but can take lemon or be used for masala also. Good.

67 / 100 Aroma: 8/10 Flavor: 4/5 Value: 2/5
Mar. 9th, 2019

This is one of the best Earl Greys I've had. The base tea is wonderful and the bergamot is subtle. Note that I'm saying that "subtle" is a positive thing, so if you like Earl Grey with a powerful citrus flavor, then this one might not be what you're looking for.

That said, the tea is extremely mellow for an Assam in...

I found a Middle Eastern store that carries a large number of Ahmad's teas and decided to try some of their herbal teas as well. As a brand, Ahmad has shown itself to produce high quality and flavorful products and this tea is no exception. Other than whatever "natural flavor" is included (I'm guessing primarily lemon ...

Based on the previous reviews, I bought a pound box of this tea. Most of what I could say was already said by Alex in their spot-on review. I find that I get the best cup of tea by allowing it to steep for ten minutes or so.

Even with such a long steep, the bitterness is understated for an Assam. Though the tea gets...

Both the dry tea and steeped liquor have a perfumy peach aroma that smells to me like peach Jolly Rancher candy (a discontinued flavor, sadly). There's just enough passion fruit to be detectable, but I bought this particular flavor for the passion fruit and am a bit disappointed that it isn't stronger.

Good quality tea. The rooibos and cinnamon have a good blend where the cinnamon is the undertone which gives it a nice after taste.
