I had this in a bag last night at Disney Hall. It's one of the best bag teas I've had. Nice malty taste, nothing bitter about it. I'll have to try the loose version.

Nov. 14th, 2018

The title says that the herbal tea is well rested. Therefore I hope it conveys some of that placid nature to me as well. ;-)

In the meantime before bedtime, I did the usual dry-bag and in-cup sniffing prior to first chug, and generally was pleased at the result. While not intense, it was stronger and more balanc...

Nov. 14th, 2018

This tea sorely disappointed me and left me feeling sad and empty. I thought from the description that I was going to like it, but the description was somewhere between severely misleading and blatantly wrong. Thank you to Organic Herbie for the free sample. But PLEASE, update the description for this tea because it is...

Nov. 9th, 2018

For a food-service tea, this seemed slightly above average...I've had worse, but wouldn't seek it out for home consumption. This is one that, if you spot it in a motel or (as I did) receive it as "hot tea" in a breakfast cafe off I-70 in Kansas, can be consumed safely and without obvious problems. I realize that's no...

Nov. 9th, 2018

A vacation motel/lodge at which I was staying in southern Colorado had a large assortment of Allegro teas, all of which I have tried or will. [I'm basing "value" off their stated online prices, compared to what one gets.] Here's the next in line.

By itself, this was a reasonably good tea, albeit different than e...

Nov. 8th, 2018

Yet another Colombian tea from the Bitaco estate. Thank you Simpson & Vail for the samples! It's been exciting how many of these I've been able to try lately, and I love every one. They are only subtly different, but I am still able to appreciate the differences. This one, as the name suggests, was the sweetest one I'v...

Nov. 7th, 2018

This tea is a delicious smell and a delicious taste. This tea is fairly priced for being a different kind of Earl Grey, the extra flavoring brings out more than expected for such a dainty look. The brew is better on its own with no additives but a little sugar brings a lot more flavor.

60 / 100 Aroma: 6/10 Flavor: 4/5 Value: 3/5
Nov. 7th, 2018

This is a surprisingly complex tea. Good Earth bills it as a "zesty and fruity marmalade flavor" but I'm not sure I entirely agree. It does taste like marmalade, but it's not what I would call "zesty". Initially, it's predominantly citrus and could be considered zesty, but it quickly mellows to a more balanced, smooth ...

Nov. 7th, 2018

I've said before that ginger tea can be a bit overpowering at times. In this case, it's one of the best blended ginger teas I've found to date. The ginger is there, but not overpowering. The apricot is full-flavored but not overly fruity. All in all, it's a very well-balanced tea that is a pleasure to drink.

Perusing the ingredients label, I expected a cinnamon-heavy chai without actual tea, and that's pretty much what this delivered at every level. The list of components is astoundingly short for a Yogi blend at 6 (organic) ingredients: cinnamon bark, ginger root, cardamom pod, clove bud, black pepper, and cinnamon oil....

Nov. 5th, 2018

A good "sipping" tea that I found I enjoyed most when I drank slowly. This tea had some characteristics of a Ceylon and some of a Darjeeling. I found it slightly tricky to brew. I liked its aroma, but could be a bit thin-bodied and bitter. Thank you to Organic Herbie for the free sample!

Nov. 5th, 2018

Finally, after three decidedly lame ones in a row, I try a new peppermint tea that rates (barely) above the speed Sammy Hagar can't drive. I hope this upward trend continues with future peppermint teas, as this is an herb I dearly love.

Opening the wrapper released a pleasant puff of peppermint aroma, more than eve...

Nov. 4th, 2018

Realizing white tea isn't supposed to be particularly intense, from what I've read here regarding its "delicate" flavor, and that any attempt to flavor it must be careful so as to avoid overwhelming the base tea, I went in to the consumption undertaking not expecting to be blasted through the roof by an explosion of po...

This is a Whole Foods tea given to me by my sister-in-law in Colorado, who gets lots of organic and medicinal teas at the plethora of health-food shops in her area. She likes it when I try her favorite teas. So every time I return from there, I have a few more to review here. :-)

If this were all Christmastime had to offer, I'd say, fast-forward to the new year. Fortunately, it's not. "Christmas Tea" is one of the better Twinings black teas I've tried, but...
1. That's not saying much, and
2. It's a very poor approximation of Bigelow's much richer, more-flavorful Constant Comment blend. ...

Nov. 2nd, 2018

I drink quite a bit of the decaffeinated version of this tea, but had never tried the regular, caffeinated type and had the opportunity to.

Celestial Seasonings doesn't individually wrap its tea bags, but they are sealed together in a pouch made of waxed paper. The tea in the square, tagless bags is chopped fine.

This is my third consecutive "no bueno" on trying a new peppermint tea. It's about time to return to some old standbys, in order to re-familiarize with what peppermint should be!

The dry-leaf photo from their website is a little misleading, in that the sachet contained considerably more stem pieces—some quite l...

Nov. 2nd, 2018

When you have lemons, make lemonade? That seems to have happened here. While not overpowering, the distinct aroma of lemon wafted rather aggressively out of the pouch when I tore it open, and that scent stayed in the dry bag strongly until pouring the hot water through it. The in-cup smell was more balanced, but the...

Nov. 2nd, 2018

The tea's aroma is an almost equal balance of spearmint ("Nana Mint") and ginger. The mint is of good quality, with no stems apparent and no off flavors that are sometimes apparent in cheaper mint teas. Unfortunately, Wissotzky seems to have decided that all of their herbal teas, including this one, need to be sweetene...

Nov. 1st, 2018

I'm not really sold on this one. T2 markets it as "holiday in a bag" and, to a point, they're right. It definitely reminds me of a beach, but it's the wrong part of the beach. Maybe it's just me, but all I can smell from this tea is sunscreen. The flavor is there, it's a mild coconut/pineapple blend, but it seems off t...

70 / 100 Aroma: 7/10 Flavor: 4/5 Value: 4/5
Oct. 31st, 2018

The aroma has a slight earthy with hint of chocolate smell. Taste is clean without a strong after taste, slight hint of honey, smooth and mild. Nice amber color. I made it 'strong' with heaping teaspoons and 5 minute steep. This will be easy to drink all day. I never use milk or sugar.

So there I was in the tea section of a grocery store in western Colorado, realizing I had forgotten to bring enough green tea along on vacation, looking for some. The bright red, cylindrical tin with the black lid and white star caught my attention, as did the unusual brand name and flavor: pineapple, one I enjoy. T...

Oct. 30th, 2018

Bags of this tea came from a conference's coffee-break session, alongside a bunch of other Tazo and Bigelow teas that I mostly have tried already. Somehow, despite liking chai a lot, I hadn't had this one yet. It's a keeper—not the best chai I've chugged, but very satisfying, robust, and sharp. My wife likes to pa...
