Purely Peppermint from Teekanne

Style: Peppermint Tea – Region: ?????

81 / 100 Aroma: 9/10 Flavor: 5/5 Value: 3/5
Nov. 26th, 2021

The version I have simply is called "Peppermint" without the "Purely" or "Soothing" parts, though I have seen the white-box "Soothing" version in stores too. The ingredient in both simply is peppermint leaves. I don't know if it has been wholly renamed, or if this is just a relabeling of the same tea for different ma...

Evergreen from Murchie's Tea & Coffee Ltd

78 / 100 Aroma: 8/10 Flavor: 4/5 Value: 4/5
Nov. 21st, 2021

Evergreen is a unique tea, to say the least. That usually means it's going to be a major turn-off, a surprising crowd-pleaser, or just weird. How about, "pleasantly weird"?

Like Shania's boyfriends in her pop-country song, the first couple cups had me thinking, "That don't impress me much!" Unlike them with her, ...

68 / 100 Aroma: 9/10 Flavor: 4/5 Value: 2/5
Nov. 18th, 2021

Each box contains 10 individually plastic-wrapped pyramid sachets, with visible, chopped pieces of green tea leaves and lavender buds at about a 20/1 ratio, and an invisible natural flavoring in the form of powdered blueberry juice. A pinch of matcha powder accumulates in the bottom crease of the wrapper, and can be d...

Nov. 14th, 2021

Call me a complete sucker for quality teas of this ilk, I suppose. This is Murchie's version of Constant Comment, which I also rate very highly, but with a few differences. In addition to cloves, orange peel and cinnamon, which the Bigelow product uses, Murchie's adds vanilla. This makes it less sharp than Constant ...

Nov. 9th, 2021

It's not hard to get peppermint tea right: just use properly grown and dried leaves and put enough in the bag to fill it when wet. They got the first part, and failed miserably on the second.

I've had a lot of peppermint teas, and the quality of the leaves they use stands with any of them, even with a few choppe...

Nov. 7th, 2021

What Murchie's does well⁠, they utterly excel, and that's most of their teas. But on very uncommon occasions they spin out a head-scratching clunker that grossly defies their sterling reputation. This, friends, is the latter.

As an OU football fan, a great analogy is that one time just about every season when ...

"Yu Luo" High Mountain Pure Bud Green Tea from Yunnan Sourcing

84 / 100 Aroma: 7/10 Flavor: 5/5 Value: 4/5
Nov. 7th, 2021

Thanks Dewey for sharing this with me! This was a smooth, mellow, mild green tea that was easy to brew and enjoy.

The leaf of this smells very fresh, a sort of sweet fragrance, almost floral, typical of high-quality, tippy Chinese green teas. It's pleasant but also hard to anticipate how it is going to taste, so I w...

Nov. 6th, 2021

Teekanne markets numerous assorted fruit infusions on multiple nation-domain websites. Curiously, I can't find this product (by this name anyway, or by another with the same ingredients) anywhere on Teekanne's main dot-com English-language website, nor German, nor their Austrian site .at, which is in English. Yet it'...

Nov. 4th, 2021

This tea is really good! It’s aromatic and bready smelling which I like. The taste is really smooth and it has a complex flavor with slight bitterness but in a good way! This is a really enjoyable tea!

Murchie's carries so many different tea blends that it takes a long time—years, at a normal tea-drinking pace—to get around to trying most of them. I wish this one had landed on my porch sooner! This may be the richest, smoothest, fullest-bodied all-black tea blend of theirs, or anybody's for that matter, that I'...

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

87 / 100 Aroma: 6/10 Flavor: 5/5 Value: 4/5
Oct. 30th, 2021

This tea is pretty smooth and easy to drink, however it is a bit boring and doesn’t have a super strong aroma. I’m still giving it a highish score just because it is a comforting tea to drink and it doesn’t have any outwardly negative qualities like being too harsh or astringent.

Oct. 25th, 2021

A co-worker who drinks a lot of medicinal herbal teas left me this and regurgitated not the tea itself, but the claim that it "helps reduce free radicals". My response: "How? By imprisoning the radicals?" Smart-aleck retorts aside, I'm wary of teas that make a bunch of health claims that aren't solidly backed medical...

This tea is so good!! It smells nice and has a good flavor but with none of the harshness or bitterness that tea sometimes has. It’s really smooth and bready but still interesting and fragrant

My boss drinks this at work and while it smells like Christmas - I can't deal with this type of tea. It is caffeine free and brews up in about 3-4 minutes. Mid-priced. Affordable. Not my fave. So. Much. Cassia bark.

Celestial Seasonings has produced, then retired, at least three flavored white teas, based on RateTea's listings. Is the fourth time the charm?

This apparently new offering, as of October 2021, contains white tea (unspecified type and origin), white chocolate flavor with other natural flavors, cinnamon, peppermin...

Sep. 26th, 2021

This tea is really good! It has a bready and raisiny aroma it tastes very smooth and somewhat chocolaty. My one complaint is that it’s very slightly astringent in the aftertaste.

Sep. 23rd, 2021

I found this a pleasant tea to drink but it was not among my favorites. It was surprisingly different from its organic counterpart. Of the two, I strongly preferred this one.

The leaf is tightly rolled and quite beautiful. Compared to the organic version of this tea, it looks a little paler in color and slightly loo...

Sep. 22nd, 2021

RateTea has been good for my life, by motivating me to variegate my tea sampling, and opening up new flavor and olfactory worlds. How's that for advertorial testimony? :-) That, however, has included getting me to sample nasty to mediocre teas, as well as some very good ones I otherwise wouldn't have had. This clas...

Sep. 18th, 2021

As medicinal herbals go, this one was OK—not as OK as Oklahoma pronounced itself on 1970s license plates, but OK nonetheless. The dry bag gave off a pronounced licorice aroma, which doesn't bother me, since I'm cool with licorice. But some folks hate licorice, and I predict they won't take a shine to the smell or t...

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.

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.

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.

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...

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...
