Wild Berries from Twinings

Style: Fruit (Herbal) Tea – Region: Blend

66 / 100 Aroma: 8/10 Flavor: 3/5 Value: 4/5
Aug. 5th, 2022

This is Twinings' take on the standard rosehip/hibiscus blend with added flavors. It's fruity, leaning heavily toward strawberry. The hibiscus lends a bit of tartness, but as far as I can tell, the other ingredients are just carriers for the host of added "natural flavors."

The main difference in this one is the pre...

Earl Grey from Twinings

Style: Earl Grey Tea – Region: ?????

58 / 100 Aroma: 6/10 Flavor: 3/5 Value: 3/5
Aug. 5th, 2022

The dry tea is finely chopped and smells strongly of citrus. There are a few white flecks in the bag that according to the ingredients are probably bergamot peel.

I'm pretty sure that the citrus in Twinings Earl Grey is a blend. The bergamot is pronounced (as it should be in an Earl Grey), but I also taste sweet ora...

African Honeybush, Mandarin and Orange from Twinings

Style: Flavored Honeybush – Region: ?????

45 / 100 Aroma: 6/10 Flavor: 2/5 Value: 3/5
Aug. 4th, 2022

The dry bag smells like canned mandarin oranges and the infusion smells like orange soda.

The flavor is slightly more complex. I get some of the toasty woodiness of the honeybush and the flavor's nice, but is weak and a bit stale tasting. It's mediocre all around in that there are higher quality herbals and better-t...

Spiced Apple Chai from Twinings

Style: Chai / Spiced Tea – Region: Blend

35 / 100 Aroma: 5/10 Flavor: 2/5 Value: 2/5
Aug. 4th, 2022

This tea is all about the added flavors. The dry tea smells strongly of green apple peels. Adding hot water brings out a bit of spice, predominantly cinnamon.

I don't taste or smell any tea. The flavor is mostly cinnamon with a bit of ginger heat and some apple in the background and tastes like those powdered hot ci...

Cranberry Pomegranate from Stash Tea

Style: Flavored Rooibos – Region: Blend

66 / 100 Aroma: 6/10 Flavor: 4/5 Value: 4/5
Jul. 29th, 2022

I got this tea for my wife, who likes cranberry flavor, but she has avoided it because the main aroma and flavor is from the rooibos (which she doesn't like). So to please her, I drink it instead. ;-)

This is one of the very few flavored or herbal teas I've had containing rooibos where the rooibos clearly dominate...

Earl Grey Supreme from Upton Tea Imports

75 / 100 Aroma: 8/10 Flavor: 3/5 Value: 5/5
Jul. 18th, 2022

This is a mellow EG, with a smooth base tea and subdued bergamot flavor. Usually I prefer my EG with lemon and sugar, but imo this works best with milk and just a little sugar.

Jul. 7th, 2022

This is a very nice tea. Small black leaves with some gold strands. It brews up light color, brown/black, very clear. It has a nice peppery taste with a decent caffeine kick. Very nice in the afternoon.

Green Tea with Coconut & Ginger from Harney and Sons

Style: Flavored Green Tea – Region: Blend

73 / 100 Aroma: 8/10 Flavor: 5/5 Value: 2/5
Jul. 3rd, 2022

Substantively, this doesn't seem to be different from Harney's Bangkok tea (which I liked a lot and reviewed highly), but in even costlier sachets. Expensive stuff. Very expensive stuff. Did I mention it's pricey?

The value really drags on this product, because while it smells and tastes very good, paying ten b...

Lady Grey (Loose) from Twinings

Style: Fruit Black Tea – Region: Blend

62 / 100 Aroma: 7/10 Flavor: 4/5 Value: 3/5
Jun. 23rd, 2022

The loose tea is a rather broken black tea blend with visible bits of citrus peel and blue cornflower petals. It smells strongly like fresh oranges, but the tea aroma is quite faint. Adding hot water brings out a malty aroma from the tea, but the citrus still predominates.

The bulk of the flavor is citrus. The blend...

G'day Mate from SerendipiTea

Style: Herbal Tea – Region: ?????

75 / 100 Aroma: 7/10 Flavor: 4/5 Value: 4/5
Jun. 5th, 2022

This is a pretty straightforward blend of organic (& kosher) yerba mate, peppermint, and lemon myrtle. The tea is named after the famous Australian way of saying hello, but I don't know what connection exists between this tea and that Pacific nation. It is probably just a reference to the yerba mate. The lemony, herb...

Red Jasmine Tea from TWG Tea

40 / 100 Aroma: 4/10 Flavor: 2/5 Value: 3/5
Jun. 2nd, 2022

This tea was a gift. It is not tea, but rooibos flavored with jasmine. Individual bags are sealed. The aroma is woodsy, cedar like.The flavor is difficult for me to describe, almost medicinal. The jasmine is a noticeable after taste. While I am not a fan of this particular tisane, I would be curious to try the teas the...

Ceylon Blackwood Estate Organic Black Tea from Simpson & Vail

Style: Ceylon Black Tea – Region: Sri Lanka / Ceylon

75 / 100 Aroma: 8/10 Flavor: 4/5 Value: 4/5
Jun. 1st, 2022

The aroma has a light sweetness. The taste has a slight sweet honey like flavor, that lingers on the tongue. The liquor (5 mins) is a appealing golden/honey. I would say this a solid all day tea.

Aoyanagi Green from Ujinotsuyu

Style: Bancha – Region: Japan

47 / 100 Aroma: 6/10 Flavor: 3/5 Value: 2/5
Jun. 1st, 2022

The 200g package is heavy, sealed plastic. It's not resealable, so have another airtight container to put it into after opening.

The dry tea is bright green and broken into medium-small pieces. The initial aroma is strong and grassy.

The directions say to use 3g of tea per 100ml, boiling water, and to steep for 3...

Decaffeinated Green Tea from Lipton Tea

48 / 100 Aroma: 5/10 Flavor: 3/5 Value: 3/5
May. 25th, 2022

I bought this as a box of 40 tea bags. Inside were two sealed Mylar sleeves of otherwise unwrapped tea bags. I opened the first sleeve and transferred the tea bags to an airtight container.

The dry tea smells faintly of green tea. Brewing, it has a kind of strange, savory smell, like potato soup, but with a vegetal ...

Decaf Green Tea from Triple Leaf Tea

Style: Green Tea – Region: China

63 / 100 Aroma: 7/10 Flavor: 4/5 Value: 2/5
May. 25th, 2022

The tea bags are wrapped in paper inside a cellophane-sealed cardboard box. After opening the package, I put them into an airtight container.

The dry tea has a faint, grassy smell. The brewing tea smells quite a bit fresher than I expected. It's vegetal, slightly tannic and recognizably green tea.

For a decaf gre...

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

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 ...

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

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.

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...

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.

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.

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".

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...

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...
