Formosa Jade Oolong from Het Gouden Randje

Style: Jade Oolong – Region: Taiwan / Formosa

58 / 100 Aroma: 5/10 Flavor: 2/5 Value: 3/5
Jun. 25th, 2017

I bought this tea before and remember it as lovely and flowery, but when I bought more of it later, it just... wasn't so great.
It looks nice with the tightly rolled balls of leaves. It's got a kind of metallic taste that I find a bit unpleasant. That could be the jasmine-like taste that the product description mentio...

Jun. 25th, 2017

I asked the owner of Het Gouden Randje to recommend me a sweet black tea. Once it was cleared up that I wasn't interested in flavoured teas, I was offered this one, and I was charmed with the smell.

It smells warm and sweet with a hint of honey. If you don't use too much leaf, it doesn't easily get bitter even if yo...

Korea OP Jeju Green Tea Bio from Het Gouden Randje

Style: Green Tea – Region: South Korea

66 / 100 Aroma: 7/10 Flavor: 3/5 Value: 4/5
Jun. 24th, 2017

I bought this to keep at my parents' house to use as everyday green tea. It's a bit too subtle for an everyday tea, though. I also never seem to be able to get my tea quite right here.
It is very light, but doesn't feel thin, and it has a slightly sweet aftertaste. The colour is a lovely bright greenish yellow.
I'm t...

English Tea No. 1 from Ahmad Tea

Style: Earl Grey Tea – Region: Blend

74 / 100 Aroma: 7/10 Flavor: 4/5 Value: 4/5
Jun. 24th, 2017

This bagged tea didn't earn quite as high of a rating as Ahmad's loose-leaf version of English Afternoon, but it was very good. Oodles of bags of this turned up in my pantry in an unmarked tin (my wife likes it, apparently), so I figured to give it a try.

I could taste the bergamot a bit -- not as much as with th...

60 / 100 Aroma: 5/10 Flavor: 4/5 Value: 4/5
Jun. 23rd, 2017

Perhaps this surprisingly high rating (for a very, very cheap tea) arises from the psychology of low expectations. I had seen a 100-count box of Clover Valley for sale at Dollar General for less than $2.50 (including tax)—slightly more than two cents per bag. Not wanting to buy a hundred bags, in case this tea suck...

Magnolia Oolong from Harney and Sons

Style: Oolong Tea – Region: Guangdong, China

86 / 100 Aroma: 9/10 Flavor: 5/5 Value: 4/5
Jun. 22nd, 2017

This was my favorite oolong that I have sampled in a long time. After being let down by several oolongs from Harney & Sons, this one hit the spot.

The leaf, which is quite wiry, smells amazing and multifaceted: floral, fruity, toasty, spicy. There's a skunky note and a pleasant bready, baked-good quality. It seem...

Jun. 22nd, 2017

Het Gouden Randje offers sweet high tea arrangements for groups of four to eight people, so I invited some friends along on my birthday. You get served three rounds, each with two kinds of tea and something sweet to eat (such as cookies, cake, parfaits...) You'll get to taste several different kinds of tea from very fa...

Nepal Tippy Orange Pekoe from Simon Lévelt

Style: Black Tea – Region: Nepal

62 / 100 Aroma: 6/10 Flavor: 3/5 Value: 3/5
Jun. 21st, 2017

The dry leaves look green, orange and black, and the used leaves a really soft greenish orange. The liquid is much lighter than most other black teas I have.
This tea is extremely smooth and soft and tastes kind of earthy. It doesn't easily get bitter.

80 / 100 Aroma: 8/10 Flavor: 4/5 Value: 5/5
Jun. 21st, 2017

I love peppermint, and this brand doesn't seem to use a detectable level of stems, non-mint material, spearmint, or other needless filler. The aroma and taste accordingly are nearly maxed for the amount of leaves used (which I always wish were more!).

Although the flavor of this tea is standard peppermint -- no ...

84 / 100 Aroma: 8/10 Flavor: 4/5 Value: 4/5
Jun. 20th, 2017

I thought this was an above-average white peony or bai mu dan.

Dry leaf smells different from any other White Peony tea I've tried, notes of candied citrus peel, a sort of bittersweet smell, a slight pungency, almost hinting at camphor. I'm intrigued, and eager to try this to see what kind of cup this leaf produces...

85 / 100 Aroma: 9/10 Flavor: 4/5 Value: 5/5
Jun. 19th, 2017

Before discussing the tea, I want to mention a little about the branding and packaging. First, the "Ten Fu's" font and graphics look like they're intentionally similar to Ten Ren's trademark logo, but Ten Fu's and Ten Ren are different companies. Second, cans of Ten Fu's tea include a Taiwan logo on the can, which many...

Organic Black Tea from Golden Sail Brand

Jun. 16th, 2017

The teabags in the box are standard style bags filled with 2g of fannings and sealed in clear plastic. Opening the pouch releases a dry, earthy, leafy aroma. Adding hot water intensifies the aroma and adds a note of sweetness that wasn't present in the dry leaves.

Because the tea in the bags is cut so fine, it steep...

77 / 100 Aroma: 8/10 Flavor: 3/5 Value: 4/5
Jun. 15th, 2017

Served in Rock City cafe in Rockland, Maine.

This was a very dark Assam with a fairly smoky character. Aroma is strong, malty and fruity, but it is the smoky notes that make this tea stand out. The aroma is interesting and complex, a little like drinking a fine wine.

Flavor is slightly harsh, bitter and with a lo...

Jun. 14th, 2017

The first few attempts at making this tea didn't turn out good at all, kind of sour and unpleasant. It is the first white tea I try, so it might be because of that. I decided just now to actually have a look at the instructions on the box instead of making it like a green tea. I was surprised to see it recommend a 5-mi...

My sister-in-law offered me a bag of this, and immediately I had to ask: "Organic? Who on Earth is purposefully growing inorganic dandelions?" Most folks don't have to walk far to find organic dandelions (at least what would qualify by no-pesticide, no-herbicide, no-artificial-fertilizer standards). Some sprout from...

Jun. 14th, 2017

My first pu-erh just had to be this, didn't it? As of now, I still haven't tried any other, and being an ignoramus of massive proportions about this type of tea, have no clue how it should taste. So what do I do? Drink a chocolate/nutmeg pu-erh with rooibos whose non-tea flavors (that I happen to like a lot) mask an...

I've seen Dragonwell here and there and I had the general impression that it is a pretty well-known tea with a good reputation, so i wanted to try it. (In fact, one of my proudest tea lover moments was seeing Longjing mentioned in Death's End by Liu Cixin and knowing what that is - and actually having some myself.)

Jun. 13th, 2017

It's no big secret that I love peppermint, given that it pops up in my review docket almost as profusely as it does as a weed in cooler parts of the nation. As noted in one of my other reviews of a peppermint tea (Stash), it's hard, but possible, to screw up this herb as a tea.

Bigelow didn't screw this up. Thei...

I don't know what it is about this tea, but I always oversteep it. The first time I ever made it, I even forgot about it for one and a half hours. When I found it, it was cold and bitter. (In my defense, it was graduation day and I was a bit distracted.)
And just now when I wanted to review it it got too strong again,...

Overall, this wasn't a favorite, but is tolerable if one can either overcome a bothersome aroma, ignore it, or fail to notice in the first place.

Upon reading the side of the unopened bag wrapper, so many thoughts began swirling across my cranium's vast and mostly empty void, including, in about this order,

I was excited to try this tea the afternoon I purchased it. Everything was going well. The aroma was great, the color was pleasing, and I could tell off the bat that this wouldn't be a knock off of Twining's English Breakfast Tea. As I took my first sip, I Way disappointed to say in the least. the flavor was rather pep...

This light tea has a very unique flavor. It tastes very warm and toasty but is to hard to describe. The teas color is a very satisfying golden-yellow color and smells lovely. I definetly reccomend this great tea to anyone who wants to try something new! For all you know, it could be your new favorite flavor!

This tea is a great twist on earl grey tea. There's a strong presence of citrus in this tea which creates a very unique flavor.

To be honest, I didn't personally care for this tea :/ I mean this tea was a great value considering each box contains a whopping 55 bags compared to twinning's 20, but the flavor just wasn't there for me. The taste was rather bitter, but not in a strong and robust way, but almost like pool water. like chlorine. I can ...
