Traditional Navajo Tea from Yanabah Navajo Tea

Style: Herbal Tea – Region: United States of America

73 / 100 Aroma: 8/10 Flavor: 4/5 Value: 3/5
Aug. 18th, 2017

Boxes of Yanabah teas, named after a Navajo matriarch beloved by the makers, appeared in the gift shop at Monument Valley for about 6 bucks (a tad on the costly side, but that is a tourist shop). Naturally I had to try something new, and bought the basic flagship variety. Greenthread is a common native forb in the ast...

Assam from Two Leaves Tea

Aug. 15th, 2017

I'm kind of surprised the reviews are not better. I absolutely love this tea. The price is high $8 for 15 bags but I still buy it and consider it a luxury. For a commercially produced, ready-to-go tea bag, I think it's a great choice.

Black Tea from Lipton Tea

It's cheap. On the spectrum of teas Lipton would be near the bottom. It is almost undrinkable. I wouldn't drink it for free.

I have been to the plantation which is a great experience. This is a very very good tea. Top notch. It tastes great all by itself without any sweetener or milk. I normally use both but it says a lot when a tea can be enjoyed on its own.

Yunnan Black Dragon Pearls, ZY75 from Upton Tea Imports

Style: Yunnan Gold – Region: Yunnan, China

70 / 100 Aroma: 7/10 Flavor: 4/5 Value: 4/5
Aug. 12th, 2017

Nice amber colored liquor. Subtle aroma and flavor. The 'pearls' open up during steeping. Would not be my first choice if I wanted a 'strong' Yunnan. Very enjoyable.

Milky Oolong from Het Gouden Randje

69 / 100 Aroma: 8/10 Flavor: 4/5 Value: 4/5
Aug. 11th, 2017

I drank this in Het Gouden Randje's tearoom.

It smelled sweet and creamy, and almost like custard. Definitely like vanilla. I was amazed with how the clear liquor tasted and felt milky. It's soft and sweetish.
It actually reminds me of a cheap artificial-vanilla-flavoured bagged tea that I used to drink years ago, ...

Aug. 11th, 2017

This is a new tea that Het Gouden Randje has just added to its inventory. I drank a cup of it in the tea shop, and I did my best to taste it properly. It's always difficult, though; I prefer to drink teas at home with more controlled conditions and multiple chances to get to know them properly.
I feel like this time e...

Aug. 9th, 2017

Not exactly my cup of tea (lol, puns) but for a flavored herbal tea it was pretty decent, based on other ones I've tried. On the plus side it was not very astringent at all, but unfortunately it tasted oddly soap-like and weird to me.

Colombian Black Tea from Simpson & Vail

Aug. 6th, 2017

This tea smells floral and fruity. The taste is light and not very astringent but it has a subtle and pleasant bitterness to it. Even though it's lighter bodied, I felt full after drinking it. It's a very satisfying tea and worth the money. Also, this tea is unusually good when you re-steep it, it still maintains much ...

95 / 100 Aroma: 9/10 Flavor: 5/5 Value: 3/5
Aug. 5th, 2017

I really loved this tea. It was the furthest I'd ever been in the direction of green oolongs when I tried it, so I was really surprised at the green, umami, mineral flavors. It was slightly buttery and more floral than the Nonpareil Taiwan Li Shan Oolong Tea. I liked that this one imparted a very relaxed feeling after ...

Aug. 5th, 2017

This is really unique, amazing tea. I really didn't find it all that floral. It was much more green, umami, mineral/salty, and had this buttery, rich body to it that really filled me up. The floral notes were there and ubiquitous, but not all that strong. I really liked that because some oolongs are just too heavy on t...

Aug. 5th, 2017

I think that if I were new to young, raw pu-erh and thought that they were all bitter and undrinkable, this might 'wow' me in that it is sweeter, fruity, and definitely can be consumed now. But, compared to other young, raw pu-erh I've tried, it's really not special. It's also higher-priced. And, I really didn't like t...

Aug. 5th, 2017

I didn't try a sample before ordering this one in a 25g bag (my mistake). I was really surprised with how little flavor it had. As with the Spring Laoshan Green and Spring Reserve Laoshan Green, there's a savory profile, though this is more delicate and sweet than the others. But, the notes didn't last for more than a ...

Aug. 5th, 2017

I didn't try a sample pack of this one before ordering the larger 25g bags, because it was less expensive, so it wasn't a big deal to just order the bigger bags. Well, after trying it, I could see why it was less expensive. I got almost no brews out of this. It's really low-quality tea. Even taking into account the fac...

Aug. 5th, 2017

I was really impressed with this when I was trying it in a sample pack. I got a lot of brews out of it, it had a lot of really nice savory notes (nutty, umami, mineral/salty, etc.). But, then when I purchased it in a larger amount, it didn't have nearly as much flavor. I stored it in the same way I've stored teas from ...

Aug. 4th, 2017

"Warming" is indeed the best word to describe this tea. It smells like baked goods: what comes to mind is Finnish christmas cookie dough. I can clearly taste the anise and the licorice, the cinnamon too, but I'm not sure about the sage, honeybush and orange. Actually, this tea tastes like anise and licorice but not tha...

Okay this is a first time tea review. My husband brought a couple of Rituals English Breakfast teabags home from a trip. I opened the first teabag and was pleasantly surprised--I had expected something pretty nasty. But I enjoyed it. Right now I am using the second teabag. Knowing that it's not available in stores make...

Style: Yunnan Red – Region: Yunnan, China

70 / 100 Aroma: 7/10 Flavor: 4/5 Value: 4/5
Aug. 4th, 2017

This tea smells similar to Simon Lévelt's Ruhuna Orange Pekoe. The leaves are more colourful, with many golden tones, but the aroma has a similar strong dried fruit quality. However, I don't think I'd describe it as plums, exactly. Raisins come to mind, or rather, a kind of spicy raisin cake.

The liqueur tastes ver...

Picked this up at an Asian market the other day and it's now my office tea. Very flavorful. No sweetness and just a mild bitterness. Quite smooth, not as "bright" as the assam I had at breakfast.

I followed the directions on the package and used boiling water and steeped 4 minutes.

When I first bought this tea, I had such a bad cold that I could taste any difference between this and, say, gunpowder. It all just tasted like hot water to me.

Luckily, this turned out to have a bit more flavour and aroma once my cold cleared and I could taste things again.
The dry tea has relatively little aroma,...

A friend of mine drinks lots of flavoured rooibos, and after trying a few cheap bagged varieties, I decided I like citrus-flavoured rooibos and got some loose rooibos.

This rooibos with (among others) lemongrass and ginger is okay, but I don't like it that much. I can't really get it to taste like much more than lem...

A very spicy, gingery black tea with a burst of coconut. The cinnamon and ginger both blend into a strong spicy kick!

Aug. 2nd, 2017

This tea could almost be summarised in a single word: Nutty. It has an intensely nutty aroma and flavour. It also reminds me of dry autumn leaves (not that I've tasted many of those, but I can't shake the association). I'm not a fan of nutty teas, so I don't really enjoy this one.

This is the first tea I tried with ...

This came in my second order from Mark T. Wendell. It looks nice in the tin, dark brown and gold mixed together. It has a pleasant faint smell. After steeping for 4 minutes it produces a deep red color. The aroma remains faint. The taste is smooth and very good with a peppery component that others have mentioned. It's ...

This tea smells pleasantly fungal and like straw, like damp autumn leaves and moist earth. The flavour is very soft and smooth and it never gets bitter or sour. I have, in the past, forgotten about it and left it to steep for more than five, maybe even ten minutes, and it's still been smooth. Even when it's strong, tho...
