Degozest Assam Spring Natural Artisanal Green from TEAORB

Style: Assam Green – Region: Assam, India

89 / 100 Aroma: 8/10 Flavor: 5/5 Value: 5/5
Oct. 20th, 2017

This tea stood out among the first several Assam green teas I sampled from TEAORB. I haven't tried the whole batch yet, not even half of it, but this is definitely my favorite so far.

The dry leaf is by far the most fragrant of the Assam greens I've tried. The smell is similar to the other teas: smoky, vegetal, an...

Chamomile Lemon (Sweet Meadows) from Numi Organic Tea

Style: Chamomile Blend – Region: Blend

83 / 100 Aroma: 8/10 Flavor: 5/5 Value: 4/5
Oct. 20th, 2017

Straight up: this is probably the best chamomile tea I've had. Chamomile is a difficult herb to either foul up or make amazing. Without some sort of enhancement, as Bill Parcells might say, "It is what it is." Numi helped by sprinkling lemon myrtle leaves into the mix.

This beverage brews up a rich golden color w...

Yunnan Loose Tea from Murchie's Tea & Coffee Ltd

Style: Yunnan Red – Region: Yunnan, China

88 / 100 Aroma: 9/10 Flavor: 5/5 Value: 5/5
Oct. 19th, 2017

This was one of the most classic examples of a Dian Hong or black tea from Yunnan, that I have tried in a long time.

The dry leaf is rich in golden tips, looking a little more greenish and silvery than in the company's picture. It smells mild but very pleasant and complex, with smoky and fruity notes typical of a Y...

Black Gunpowder (z) from De Theefabriek

Style: Black Gunpowder – Region: Fujian, China

57 / 100 Aroma: 5/10 Flavor: 3/5 Value: 4/5
Oct. 19th, 2017

The dry leaves are a lovely dull brown colour. I just really like the look of them.

I'm having slightly mixed feelings. It is flowery as advertised, but it's also a bit "dull" in a way that cheap teabags often are. Maybe I used too much tea or let it steep for too long. Or maybe too many leaves and not steeped long ...

71 / 100 Aroma: 7/10 Flavor: 4/5 Value: 4/5
Oct. 17th, 2017

I'm still struggling with tightly-rolled green oolongs, but when I do get this one right, it tastes amazing. It's extremely smooth and slightly sweetish. It has just a hint of something that reminds me of green tea. It's silky soft and a bit sweet when I get it right, but sour if I do it wrong (for example, if I use to...

66 / 100 Aroma: 7/10 Flavor: 4/5 Value: 2/5
Oct. 17th, 2017

A very subdued tea. This one was pleasant, but disappointed me, given how much I normally tend to like Keemun.

Dry leaf smells pleasant and mild, a little fresher and cooler-smelling than I normally expect for Keemun.

Brews a rich, dark cup with a mellow flavor and a distinctly caramelly aroma. A little fresher,...

Fairtrade Organic Earl Grey from Clipper Teas

Style: Earl Grey Tea – Region: Blend

80 / 100 Aroma: 8/10 Flavor: 3/5 Value: 4/5
Oct. 17th, 2017

Good blend and aroma. Achieves a delicate balance between tea taste and bergamot although bergamot slightly strong so if you want to taste the underlying tea blend might be difficult.

Oct. 17th, 2017

One of my favourite green teas. Doesn't go bitter (leave for less than two minutes) and it tastes so smooth and nice. It is my go to tea in Starbucks these days.

Oct. 17th, 2017

Bought a tin last time I was in Paris from their store. They have a lot of earl grey teas which made me a little skeptical on how "specialised" they could be with all these blends, but I still decided to buy a tin.

It has a nice aroma that sticks, but the tea itself I would say is average. Not sure which blend they...

Oct. 17th, 2017

What can I say? I am not usually a fan of green tea, because I don't like its "bitter" taste. But this one converted me. The trick is that is is flavoured with bergamot oil (usually found in Earl Grey Teas) and dried pieces of Seville oranges. The result is a truly amazing flavour that smooths (without masking) the tra...

Oct. 17th, 2017

I remember vividly the impression of black tea I first tried at my host family's home in England where I had studied English for several months. It was one rainy morning in the last flight of April in 2014 and I have since been a tea enthusiast. I still don't know what sort of tea that was - it might be English breakfa...

81 / 100 Aroma: 8/10 Flavor: 4/5 Value: 4/5
Oct. 14th, 2017

This tea tasted a lot like an un-aged sheng pu-erh, but a softer one suitable for immediate consumption. This was my second tea sampled in my adventure into Assam green teas, thanks to the abundant small samples TEAORB sent me.

Dark, crinkly leaf smells heavy, but there's a faint light note suggesting sweetness, an...

Oct. 14th, 2017

Toasted rice is a substance I enjoy in some contexts (in a breakfast-cereal blend, a topping on ice cream, or embedded in fudge and soft-chocolate candy), but I had no idea what to make of the combination of it with tea. Now I do...not a big fan.

The poured scent was practically nonexistent, as the tea's color ch...

Oct. 13th, 2017

A potent large-leafed green tea with a strong flavor, thick body, and a bold, slightly alien aroma.

This was the first Assam green tea I have ever tried. Thank you TEAORB for generously shipping me a huge assortment of Assam green teas. This one reminds me of Yunnan green teas more than anything else, a little lik...

60 / 100 Aroma: 4/10 Flavor: 3/5 Value: 3/5
Oct. 12th, 2017

I felt at the first sip of this tea like swallowing a gulf of bonfire smoke, or, say, some embers (for its slightly-sweet finish). When I have a one-hundred-gram tin of Prince of Wales, a cuppa at afternoon tea time would bring me a shot in the arm in my dull everyday routines as if to go camping on a weekend and have ...

Shou Mei White from Caina Tea

85 / 100 Aroma: 9/10 Flavor: 4/5 Value: 5/5
Oct. 11th, 2017

Shou Mei is a very stem-y and leafy loose left. Caina says to steep 1tbsp for about 25 seconds, with all the stems and big leafs it's pretty hard to measure. It's actually a lot easier just to eyeball and take a guess, if you drink a lot of loose leaf tea it's not that hard to guesstimate it. To me it has a light flowe...

Oct. 11th, 2017

Iron Goddess is the first Oolong tea I've had. It has this nice earthy/herbal, flowery flavor, almost a natural sweetness to it's taste. You can clearly imagine the taste by it's smell, which is very much the same. Caina says you want to steep 1tsp for about 30 seconds, with resteeping of the leaves about 5 times. This...

I got this on sale and, as of today, it's still on the sale price on their website. Hence, this one gets a better "value" rating from me than most Teavana teas.

I love the aroma of this tea. I always enjoy lavender, and the caramel adds just the right kind of sweetness. In fact, when I noticed the caramel bits in th...

The standard tea bags are packaged in plastic. When opened, the tea is quite pungent, smelling fresh, sweet and of seaweed.

I used 175° water for three minutes. This tea is really aromatic while brewing. The tea smells like seaweed, but not fishy.

The flavor is definitely of high-quality Japanese green tea, but ...

This is not true tea (Camellia sinensis) although it is an interesting beverage. Very sour. I've also used it as ingredient in some exotic recipes calling from dried lime. It's an interesting experience but definitely not a daily drinker!
