Steep by Bigelow Organic Dandelion & Peach Rooibos & Green from Bigelow Tea

Style: Rooibos / Tea Blend – Region: ?????

47 / 100 Aroma: 7/10 Flavor: 2/5 Value: 2/5
May. 18th, 2022

The ingredients list rooibos first, so it can't be more than half green tea. The dry tea bag smells exactly like freeze-dried peaches and so does the tea while steeping.

The tea tastes like peach with a hint of earthiness from the rooibos and possibly the dandelion. If I concentrate, I can make out a bit of green te...

Blackberry Sage from Republic of Tea

Style: Flavored Black Tea – Region: Blend

54 / 100 Aroma: 6/10 Flavor: 3/5 Value: 2/5
May. 17th, 2022

Republic teas usually are on the costly side; however, I grabbed this one on sale at a Dallas Whole Foods. "Value" is based on the normal prices for other Republic teas (retailing upwards of 8-10 bucks for 50-pouch columnar steel tins), and how this tea doesn't pack the punch it should for reputably strong flavors of ...

Chai Walla from SerendipiTea

Style: Chai / Spiced Tea – Region: India

90 / 100 Aroma: 8/10 Flavor: 5/5 Value: 5/5
May. 13th, 2022

Like a lot of SerendipiTea's products, this is both organic and kosher. The recipe is straightforward: black tea, ginger, cinnamon, anise, cloves, and cinnamon. Prepared the traditional way (which I learned how to do during a visit to India), this makes a well-balanced, flavorful, and pleasantly sweet and spicy chai. ...

Congo Bongo from SerendipiTea

Style: Flavored Black Tea – Region: India

70 / 100 Aroma: 8/10 Flavor: 3/5 Value: 3/5
May. 12th, 2022

This is an Indian black tea flavored with organic coconut, organic marigold/calendula, and coconut and mango flavoring - so it is very tropical in character. It was quite nice with milk and sugar, or with just sugar, sort of dessert like. I bet it would be good on ice as well.

Citralicious from SerendipiTea

Style: Herbal Tea – Region: ?????

80 / 100 Aroma: 8/10 Flavor: 4/5 Value: 4/5
May. 11th, 2022

This is a straightforward blend of two organic herbs - lemon myrtle and mint. Overall the results are quite nice, even if the myrtle bosses around the mint (which I think is spearmint rather than peppermint - how many mints are there to choose from anyway?) I have this with a little sugar, and have not yet tried it o...

China Black Organic (Yunnan) Black Tea from Simpson & Vail

Style: Yunnan Gold – Region: Yunnan, China

45 / 100 Aroma: 4/10 Flavor: 3/5 Value: 3/5
May. 10th, 2022

Mild all around. Aroma is a weak Yunnan. Flavor is a mediocre Yunnan, with a slight burnt after taste. Liquor brews (5min) to a deep brown. Not impressed.

Ceylon Blackwood Estate Organic Green Tea from Simpson & Vail

Style: Green Tea – Region: Uva, Sri Lanka

70 / 100 Aroma: 7/10 Flavor: 4/5 Value: 4/5
May. 9th, 2022

The aroma is a mild sweet, I'm reminded of honey. The flavor is 'clean', with a slight sweet after taste that for me does not linger on the tongue. The liquor brews (5 min) to a pleasant medium brown. Very enjoyable.

May. 8th, 2022

This tea was blended originally in 1996 to commemorate the 60th anniversary of the Canadian Broadcasting Corporation, though I don't think CBC markets it directly. Murchie's website touts, "choice Ceylon and China black teas, Jasmine and other green teas with a touch of citrus".

80 / 100 Aroma: 8/10 Flavor: 4/5 Value: 4/5
May. 7th, 2022

This mostly organic tisane is a mix of rooibos, cocoa, and coconut, along with a little vanilla cream flavoring. The aroma is mostly vanilla cream, with a little fresh grain. The flavor is a very nice blend of cocoa, coconut, and vanilla along with mellow rooibos. I take it with plant milk and sugar. Another very nic...

80 / 100 Aroma: 9/10 Flavor: 3/5 Value: 4/5
May. 6th, 2022

An almost all-organic green tea-tisane blend, with Chinese green tea, apple, hibiscus, rosehip, strawberry, and strawberry flavoring. It has a very pleasant aroma and is offered at a good price. I like SerendipiTea's collection of flavored teas. In this, the apple and strawberry come through clearly, and the hibiscus...

Irish Breakfast (Loose) from Twinings

Style: Irish Breakfast – Region: Blend

59 / 100 Aroma: 4/10 Flavor: 4/5 Value: 3/5
Apr. 27th, 2022

The version I'm rating is from the "American" tin (packed in Greensboro, NC, but presumably shipped over in bulk to parse out for that purpose). It doesn't look appreciably different from the photo I uploaded off Twinings' website.

Dry aroma was surprisingly weak for an Irish Breakfast blend, but pleasant to the e...

Apr. 24th, 2022

Here's another case of a tea with multiple marketing personalities across target audiences. RateTea states this product is retired/discontinued, and perhaps it is in the U.S. However, it's still available on amazon.com with an "imported" label, as of this writing (for nearly $12 per 20-ct box!). I got the remainder...

73 / 100 Aroma: 6/10 Flavor: 4/5 Value: 5/5
Apr. 14th, 2022

Value-wise, I've found that cheaper chamomile really is best much of the time, since the quality doesn't seem to vary greatly from one brand to another. So when I run low or out, I just grab something inexpensive when I see it. Such was the case here, and I rate "value" highly for two reasons:
1) The tea was on sal...

Decaf from Barry's Tea

Style: Black Tea – Region: Blend

69 / 100 Aroma: 7/10 Flavor: 4/5 Value: 4/5
Apr. 8th, 2022

This is another box of tea from iherb.com. I'd about given up on finding a decent decaf black tea, but I had a discount and so the price was right.

These are the loose, tagless tea bags typical of Ireland and the UK, containing 3g of tea each. The dry tea smells surprisingly strong for a decaf, but as others have no...

Apr. 7th, 2022

This Ceylon/Assam blend is yet another in a long line of Murchie's teas paying tribute to British royalty in some way. According to the website: "Murchie's Balmoral Blend Tea was originally blended for York House School—a private school for girls which has been an institution in Vancouver for over 75 years.

Double Bergamot Earl Grey Tea from Stash Tea

Style: Earl Grey Tea – Region: ?????

73 / 100 Aroma: 9/10 Flavor: 3/5 Value: 3/5
Apr. 7th, 2022

The foil-sealed tea bags each contain just shy of 2g of tea. The box claims a net weight of 33g in 18 bags, which makes for 1.8g of tea.

The dry tea bag smells strongly of bergamot. It also smells fresher than most other Earl Grey, like freshly cut fruit. This may be the fruitiest-smelling Earl Grey I've tried.

Mango Ginger from Yogi Tea

79 / 100 Aroma: 7/10 Flavor: 5/5 Value: 4/5
Mar. 30th, 2022

I liked this more than most Yogi blends I've tried, probably because it has tropical fruit flavors I enjoy greatly (mango and passion fruit), a spicy kick, and "only" nine ingredients. [For the uninitiated, that's extreme simplicity for Yogi Tea.] Those ingredients are (organic): ginger, cinnamon, rooibos, mango flav...

Mar. 27th, 2022

When I ordered some herbs from iHerb.com, they had better prices for Barry's teas than I can get locally, so I bought a few varieties to try and this is one of them. My box says "Irish Breakfast," so that's where I'm putting the review, but it's otherwise the same green box as the "Original Blend" and I suspect they're...

Mar. 23rd, 2022

Murchie's promotes this as a more robustly flavored version of their No. 10 Blend, which I reviewed very favorably in 2019, and I agree. So I'll give it a few more points. The component teas are:
GREEN: Jasmine and gunpowder
BLACK: Keemun and Ceylon, with some bergamot.

No. 22 Blend is yet another in a growing...

Some Yogi teas have bazillions of ingredients, while smelling and/or tasting like disjointed mishmashes of unrelated flavors, and/or spice-infused clippings from a lawn-mower bag. Good news: not this one! Kava Stress Relief seems to have some coherent and pleasant character to it. Regardless of the veracity of its a...

Rooibos Tea from Frontier

Mar. 6th, 2022

I bought a one-pound mylar bag of Frontier rooibos and transferred it to a couple of airtight jars. While recognizably rooibos, the contents of this bag have an extra note of oregano.

I brewed 5g in 16 ounces of boiling water. The oregano aroma is pronounced. It's good, but less nutty and sweet than I'm used to. I d...

Feb. 27th, 2022

I love spearmint herbal tea, but it's usually only available as a blend with peppermint. The only pure spearmint that I've been able to find locally in tea bags is Traditional Medicinals and they've been out of stock at the store where I buy them. I normally don't buy bulk because it's often stale, but since I was orde...

English Breakfast from The Tao of Tea

Feb. 25th, 2022

When first opening the tin, the tea smells earthy and dusty, very much like an inexpensive Yunnan black tea. The leaves are quite large for loose leaf tea at this price, but there are more than a few twig fragments among the leaves. This also matches my experience with inexpensive Yunnan black tea.

While brewing, th...

My samples of Barry's Decaf came from a motel where the "regular" tea was Lipton. As such, I haven't tried the normal, caffeinated breed of this tea yet for comparison's sake. Both there and at home, I tried it before bedtime, as the website advocated (but without knowing of said suggestion yet).
