Scottish Breakfast from Mark T. Wendell

Style: Black Tea – Region: Blend

85 / 100 Aroma: 6/10 Flavor: 4/5 Value: 4/5
Jan. 20th, 2021

This tea does not have a strong aroma either in the can or in the cup. Not very malty in flavor, and just ever so slightly astringent. It brews up nice and clear with a very clean taste. Its a nice cup in the morning, but does not have the kick of an Assam tea.

Jan. 14th, 2021

Prince Charles isn't among most heavily advertised teas in the large assortment Murchie's carries, but maybe it should be. It was, according to the website, "originally blended in 1981 to commemorate the Royal Wedding of Charles and Diana." Good thing this tea long outlasted that marriage!

The dry bag gave a sharp...

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

This is remarkable for a bagged tea. I tend to expect a mediocre tea in certain kinds of bagged tea. As a general rule, I think the delicacy flavors of jasmine green tea is a challenge to get right if it isn’t loose leaf or tea pearls, but this is an impressive cup. I managed to get two cups out of it. while the seco...

Jan. 8th, 2021

The aroma is mild with a bit of spiciness. The liquor is a very dark brown. Strong flavor, with a smoky after taste that stays on the tongue. A good 'strong' tea.

Jan. 8th, 2021

My wife is trying to cut back caffeine intake, and had me include this offering in the latest virtual "Murchie's run" that we do a time or two per year. And being a big fan of both happy marriages and the $CAD---->$USD exchange rates the last few years, I did not object.

Now that I've tried the tea, I'm glad that I...

Decaffeinated Breakfast Tea Bags from Taylors of Harrogate

90 / 100 Aroma: 9/10 Flavor: 4/5 Value: 4/5
Jan. 6th, 2021

I find it a bit weird, but I often like the taste of a good decaf better than the taste of the same regularly caffeinated drink. They can have a nice savory mouthfeel without bitterness.

This decaf is solid, especially for a teabag. For those expressly wanting a non-caffeinated bag tea, this is a strong choice!

Purple Needle Black Tea of Jing Mai Mountain from Yunnan Sourcing

Style: Yunnan Red – Region: Lancang, Yunnan, China

94 / 100 Aroma: 8/10 Flavor: 5/5 Value: 5/5
Jan. 5th, 2021

This tea was quite different, especially relative to other Chinese teas. I enjoyed it a lot.

The dry leaf of this is long and straight, and has a mild aroma that is unlike most Yunnan teas: mostly fruity, and smelling more like grape than anything else, with some herbaceous, skunky undertones. It is reminiscent of s...

Chamomile (Sachet) from Harney and Sons

Style: Pure Chamomile Tea – Region: Egypt

30 / 100 Aroma: 4/10 Flavor: 1/5 Value: 2/5
Jan. 3rd, 2021

The only other reviews so far give it 90 and a 100 points, so it looks like this is a contrasting view. I found it to be both a little bitter and bland, without much floral flavor or aroma. I got a sachet of this as a freebie with another order, so they may have been giving away some out-of-date product.

Prep: 200F, 5min

Aroma: Maple, brown sugar, chai spice. This is a nice smelling tea! 8/10

Prep: 200F, 5min

Aroma: You really almost smell butter cream icing. It’s a nice note but it’s not what I typically associate with red velvet cake. 7/10

Flavor: This also has a cake batter / icing type note. It’s pretty nice. 7/10

Body: Fairly full. It’s a nice compliment to the cake type drink. 8/10...

Prep: 200F, 5 min

Aroma: This really does give you the sense of a very nicely roasted coffee; however, there is a malty black tea note behind it 8/10

Flavor: This may be the best flavor on a black tea that I’ve had. Very darn close to a coffee with some sweet notes that balance out the beans. 9/10

Prep: 200F, 5min

Aroma: Clearly earl grey. Bergamot is very strong. Not unpleasant but a little disjointed. 6/10

Flavor: I tried this plain and then added a splash of almond milk. The milk blended out some rough edges and left a nice citrus flavor with the lightest kiss of cocoa. 7/10

Body: Medium to medium ...

Dec. 29th, 2020

Prep: 200F, 5min

Aroma: I really don’t know how they do it but they are a master of creating blends. This smells like a strawberry rhubarb pie in the best way. The souring notes of the rhubarb pop so well. 9/1

Dec. 29th, 2020

This tea is pretty good for a bagged tea. The flavor is strong. Just don’t oversteep it, or it will become bitter. I brewed it for four minutes and that worked well.

Also, I usually prefer my tea plain, but this one was tastier and more satisfying with a bit of milk added. I could definitely see someone using a te...

Dec. 27th, 2020

Wow, I've been reviewing teas for all these years and this is the first tea I've ever tried from Shandong, and I am a fan!

The leaf is tightly curled and has a dusty gray appearance, with small but somewhat thick leaves, and smells very potent: strongly malty with a hint of smoke and dark chocolate. The maltiness is...

Aroma: I can’t tell if this is the purple color of the liquid or if I’m really getting this much blueberry and blue raspberry. Either way, it’s fruity. 8/10

Flavor: This tastes like blue raspberry as well. I’m not sure if I’m as big of a fan of that for a dominant flavor b...

Aroma: This smells quite similar to the pumpkin spice black tea that I had yesterday. Very spicy notes of cinnamon. 8/10

Prep: 8oz, sample packet, 212F, 5min

This is my first Irish breakfast tea (at least by the specific tea). This was a free sample in my most recent adagio box.

Aroma: I’ve had a few black teas from Adagio that were quite aggressive in their aromas. This is much more subtle; however, it’s very inviting. Remi...
