Yunnan Black Gold from Yunnan Sourcing

Style: Yunnan Gold – Region: Yunnan, China

80 / 100 Aroma: 9/10 Flavor: 4/5 Value: 4/5
Dec. 13th, 2017

Great Yunnan scent. Large leaves. Nice honey colored liquor. Taste is good, a bit mild. I'm sure this will be a great 'all day' tea. Might be a bit mild for milk or cream. Minor problem with I needed to purchase 10 packets to get the full amount I wanted.

Disha Assam Summer Organic Factory Black from TEAORB

Style: Assam – Region: Assam, India

84 / 100 Aroma: 7/10 Flavor: 4/5 Value: 4/5
Dec. 9th, 2017

A relatively smooth black tea that I thought tasted better when brewed more strongly. One of the many samples TEAORB sent me, thank you!

Dry leaf, dark in appearance, slightly broken, with a gently curved shape, smells mild, pleasant but uninteresting: fruity and a little bit dusty.

The brewed cup smells sweet, ...

Disha Assam Summer Organic Factory Black from TEAORB

Style: Assam – Region: Assam, India

83 / 100 Aroma: 6/10 Flavor: 4/5 Value: 3/5
Dec. 9th, 2017

This tea tastes sort of bready and soapy at the same time, but in a good way. It's not too strong and not too astringent, which is good. It's a nice tea to have with bland foods because stronger foods would overpower the flavor of the tea. Overall this was a pretty decent tea, however, there are much cheaper tea that I...

Green Tea from Alghazaleen Tea (Do Ghazal)

Style: Green Tea – Region: ?????

55 / 100 Aroma: 5/10 Flavor: 2/5 Value: 5/5
Dec. 7th, 2017

I couldn't resist the 500 g box, it only cost €4.50 so it's extremely cheap. With such bulk teas from Turkish shops I have sometimes gotten lucky, sometimes not.

This one is drinkable, I guess. It's just very finely broken so I have to be really careful not to oversteep it, it easily gets unpleasantly sour and bit...

Dec. 5th, 2017

Of all the black teas I've ever sampled, this one surprised me the most on the second steep. The first cup was very good but not particularly remarkable, but the second one, wow, it had an explosion of floral aroma that made it smell almost as if it had been scented with jasmine.

The dry leaf looks long, wiry, and ...

Dec. 5th, 2017

Found this at the Sacramento Natural Foods Coop when looking for an alternative to the tea at my motel. I really like this tea. I brewed for 5 minutes and it has a slightly sweet flavor. I didn't detect any bitterness or astringency to it. It's very smooth. At a little more than $3 for 20 bags it seems like a good deal...

Dec. 3rd, 2017

I haven't had a bad offering from Murchie's yet, and this one isn't either. Of the herbs used to flavor the Chinese green tea (lemongrass, ginger, peppermint, fennel, and lemon peel), I can taste the fennel and lemongrass best, and the peppermint least. Since peppermint tends to be a potent, dominating kind of herb, ...

Nov. 28th, 2017

Got this at the cafe at the St. Louis Museum of Art. Gunpowder tea in a bag seemed a little strange to me. I steeped for two minutes. It was pretty good. No qualities that jumped out at me, just a decent cup.

Nov. 27th, 2017

A soft tea that was less interesting than most of the other black teas TEAORB has sent me, but still very pleasant to drink. Reminds me a lot of hot chocolate; something I'd drink later in the afternoon.

The dry leaf of this tea is very dark, thick, and wiry, and noticeably more broken than many of the other large-...

Nov. 25th, 2017

My friend gave me some of this tea to try.

I'm not good at tasting the difference between different greenish oolongs. Jade oolong, four seasons, Tie Guanyin, they often taste almost the same to me. It was the same with this one at the first steeping.

The second cup tasted different, though, like jade oolong but g...

Nov. 22nd, 2017

This tea smelled fantastic, but it was disappointing when I actually brewed it. It also didn't seem to match the commercial description or my expectations for an English Breakfast blend.

The dry leaf has a fresh, light fruity aroma, smelling very sweet and bright. The fruitiness is more like fresh grapes than drie...

Sweet orange tea from Tradition

65 / 100 Aroma: 7/10 Flavor: 3/5 Value: 4/5
Nov. 21st, 2017

The oversized sachet contains 3g of black tea that is broken, but large pieces. The orange scent is strong and there's a kind of vanilla sweetness that is almost cloying. Even so, the aroma of the tea comes through, smelling perhaps like either a Darjeeling or Chinese tea. Unfortunately, the packaging doesn't indicate ...

Nov. 20th, 2017

For peppermint, it's hard to top CS' version. As noted in some of my other peppermint tea reviews, this is an herb that is difficult to ruin anyway, and I love the flavor, whether stand-alone or mixed with other products (teas, candies, cookies, etc.). Some tea companies do use stems as cheap filler, or unadvertised ...

This tea is somewhere between exotic and bizarrre, but I really enjoyed it. Thank you TEAORB for the sample! Like a good book or song, I notice new qualities in it each time I experience it.

The dry leaf, which consists of long, intact leaves, tightly rolled, with a curly and crinkly shape, has a smoky and vegetal...

Nov. 15th, 2017

Out of all the teas on this planet, oolong, in all its varieties, is my favorite. I received this particular type as part of the monthly deal from this company in a loose leaf form.

This oolong had a nice earthy smell that was slightly stronger compared to other oolongs I have had. Its flavor was smooth all the way ...

Genmaicha from Simple Loose Leaf

Nov. 15th, 2017

As always, the value for these teas is wonderful. This was my first time trying genmaicha, and I really did not care for it.

This loose leaf tea is made from corn and rice (essentially). You can really smell the rice, but with this combo the flavor is very bland. It tastes like you are drinking rice crispies with a ...

I received this loose leaf tea through the company's subscription service, which I think is a wonderful value to try four different teas.

One tea I received this month was Blood Orange. The aroma greatly reminded me of the candy chocolate oranges generally seen around Christmas time. There was certainly the scent of...

Nov. 14th, 2017

Another tea that I found too astringent to enjoy, no matter how I brewed it. I'm finding that about most of these summer-harvest Assam greens and even some of the spring ones. Thank you to TEAORB for the samples, this is an interesting experience even if I don't like all the teas.

Dry leaf smells heavy, pungent, v...

Nov. 14th, 2017

I cannot get ENOUGH of this fantastic tea. It has a strong smell of lavender which really overpowers any other taste in the tea, but it's not so strong that you can't stand it; I could still taste a tiny bit of the regular black tea earl gray flavor. The lavender is smooth, and it's extremely calming. After drinking th...

A mellow, earthy tea that was comforting like wrapping up in an old blanket, and reminded me of dark white teas. Drinking this it almost seems to take me back in time. I am loving sampling the black teas from TEAORB; they sent me a bunch of samples and I have been enjoying the black teas more than the greens.

The bags are individually wrapped, but in paper envelopes. The dry tea smells nice, but like a generic grocery store Assam.

The tea picks up a little personality when the water is added, though. It's not as bitter as I expected and it's quite a bit sweeter than I expected. The tea is mild, yet flavorful. It almost t...

Another tea I ordered at Copper Cup in Lancaster, PA.

Rich and malty, full-bodied, but not overly tannic, with just the right amount of body and fruit. Aroma of malt and dried fruit. I find Kandy tends to produce teas that have a classic British character, and this tea is no exception...it tended a little more tow...

The final bag in the rolling saga that is my Numi variety-pack taste run has been completed. For background, spearmint doesn't turn me on or off, but I much prefer peppermint. The Moroccan mint used here, for what it is (much closer to spearmint), tastes fresh and sweet, in a cup that brews up surprisingly dark for a...

I thought this a top-quality tea, and both interesting and easy to enjoy. It was one of many samples TEAORB sent me and may be my favorite yet. It's naturally sweet, very fruity, soft and warm.

The leaf of this tea is long, wiry, wholly intact, and has more of a golden-orange color than any of the other samples fr...
