Half-litre pot at home, made from a blend of seven different strong and flavourful black teas (the company does not specify which ones, but repeats it trice in the description of the tea that the teas are strong; hm...).

83 / 100 Aroma: 9/10 Flavor: 5/5 Value: 4/5
Sep. 12th, 2020

I enjoy this tea. It has a nice level of spiciness to it. I am not big on anise, but I think it works here. Ginger is definitely the most dominant spice, but it isn't overwhelming.

88 / 100 Aroma: 10/10 Flavor: 4/5 Value: 5/5
Sep. 5th, 2020

This product is named after Vancouver's Waterfront Hotel, which commissioned Murchie's to produce it for tea service there starting in the 1990s. Buoyed by the success Murchie's has had with their somewhat similar, jasmine-flavored #10 Blend, over many decades of production in general, and in my mouth in particular, I...

Kona-cha from Maeda-en

Style: Green Tea – Region: Japan

80 / 100 Aroma: 8/10 Flavor: 4/5 Value: 5/5
Aug. 27th, 2020

This was a very interesting tea. If you don't know what kona-cha is, it is the dust and tea leaf pieces from tea processing. It is technically a byproduct, but the tea industry has repurposed it as a tea product. It's better quality than the pieces of leaves one might encounter in a tea bag, because the tea leaves used...

Aug. 27th, 2020

I was very impressed by this tea. The only other hoji-cha I've tried was from YamaMotoYama, and I enjoyed it. But, this had a more toasty, well-rounded scent to it. The leaves differed more in their shape and appearance, which made it look more natural. The tea also had a more nuanced flavor.

It wasn't that expensi...

For me this is a quintessential Ceylon. Wonderful mild earthy aroma. Liquor is a place amber. Clean taste, with a hint of fruit. Glad I have tried this. Will reorder in the future.

Aug. 23rd, 2020

This is the first tea review I can blame or credit directly to the ongoing coronavirus. We were having Sprouts groceries plucked from within and brought curbside⁠—an activity not undertaken before this pandemic⁠—and the Instacart shopper either mistakenly got "Mint Magic" instead of the peppermint tea I ordere...

Aug. 15th, 2020

Both the loose and bagged versions of this blend have gone down my gullet, and I honestly can't tell much (if any) difference, at least within a reasonably narrow batch-to-batch margin of error. That said, I'll base this review mainly on what I've got right now, which is bags from a sampler pack.

Aug. 14th, 2020

I'm not a fan of licorice in general, but this wasn't actually bad. If I had to drink a licorice-based tea, this wouldn't a bad choice -- especially considering how inexpensive it is.

Aromatic Earl Grey from Ahmad Tea

Style: Earl Grey Tea – Region: Blend

87 / 100 Aroma: 9/10 Flavor: 5/5 Value: 5/5
Aug. 14th, 2020

I'm not sure if this is actually different than plain "Earl Grey." According to the Ahmad US website, "Aromatic Earl Grey has a slightly lower dosage of bergamot when compared to Earl Grey," but the Aromatic Earl Grey is only sold in large containers (454g or 500g) and the largest Earl Grey package is 250g. The UK webs...
