I really enjoyed this tea and was not expecting to - I like a super black tea usually and this brewed to a very light color in the cup. But the flavor was like a warm hug. Very pleased!

90 / 100 Aroma: 9/10 Flavor: 5/5 Value: 5/5
Aug. 11th, 2019

Are you a big fan of Candy Cane Lane? If so, you'll probably love this offering too. It's basically the same, but with one major and two minor changes to the ingredients list that don't modify the aroma or flavor much:
1. Caffeinated black tea (no type/origin specified) is subbed for CCL's decaf green,
2. A littl...

Nightly Calm (Bedtime Blend) from Twinings

Style: Herbal Tea – Region: Blend

65 / 100 Aroma: 7/10 Flavor: 4/5 Value: 3/5
Aug. 8th, 2019

The flavor of Nightly Calm is mostly spearmint with a hint of chamomile. The spearmint is nice and doesn't taste grassy or woody. The chamomile is mostly detectable as a faint richness and I don't taste any of the other ingredients.

Pure spearmint is hard to find as a bagged herbal tea and the brands that sell it ar...

Lemon Lift Black Tea from Bigelow Tea

Style: Lemon Black Tea – Region: ?????

63 / 100 Aroma: 7/10 Flavor: 3/5 Value: 3/5
Aug. 8th, 2019

The dry teabag smells like a spiced cake, like carrot cake or gingerbread. The spice is predominantly cinnamon (mellow "Ceylon" cinnamon rather than the hotter cassia), but there's something else there, too, like nutmeg or ginger.

Interestingly, the instructions say to only steep for two minutes. I'm ignoring their ...

41 / 100 Aroma: 3/10 Flavor: 3/5 Value: 3/5
Aug. 7th, 2019

Caffeine generally doesn't bother me, even before sleepytime (lower-case, not to be confused with the Celestial Seasonings brand of herbal tea). As such, I am still rather inexperienced with decaf teas, outside of 1) a couple of lame food-service brands and 2) a strongly flavored variety that I have loved dearly for a...

Aug. 7th, 2019

I'm not entirely sure how to understand Chinese branding, but "Fujian Tea Import & Export Co., Ltd.," itself a subsidiary of "China Tea Co., Ltd." seems to be a state-run company that handles international trade for a number of smaller Chinese tea companies in the Fujian province. This jasmine tea is further branded wi...

Aug. 3rd, 2019

This was among the better bagged, fruit-flavored black teas I've had. Raspberry teas are uncommon in my experience, so I figured to try some that I saw on a hotel tray in Gillette, Wyoming. Their water ain't the greatest, so I drank one there and also took a bag home. Upon ripping open the foil-lined pouch (s.o.p. f...

95 / 100 Aroma: 10/10 Flavor: 5/5 Value: 4/5
Aug. 2nd, 2019

This is good quality chamomile. After opening the heavy paper and foil pouch, the dry teabag has a much richer aroma than most chamomile that I've had. The contents of the teabag looks ground up and entirely flower parts with no stems or leaves.

It brews up a deep gold with a slight greenish hue. The aroma of the li...

My favorite Earl Grey. Being a person who likes things on the strong side, I love the double bergamot. It is not overwhelming at all.

Jul. 29th, 2019

Finely chopped, decaf, food-service black teas in wax-paper wrappers don't inspire a great deal of confidence, so I guess this offering managed to exceed my low expectations.

I got a few of these as a restaurant and took one home to brew in good water, for fairness' sake, since the cafe was in a town with sketchy wa...

57 / 100 Aroma: 7/10 Flavor: 4/5 Value: 1/5
Jul. 27th, 2019

Directions say, "2 tea bags in a cup". While I appreciate the manufacturer's forthrightness in admitting one bag isn't enough to fill out the flavor, I also must ask, why, especially as expensive as a standard box is to start? How about simply dosing one bag with the full recommended pile of plant material instead? ...

Chamomile from TEViVE

86 / 100 Aroma: 8/10 Flavor: 4/5 Value: 5/5
Jul. 26th, 2019

This is really good chamomile. Rather than being bitter, it's floral and sweet. The box says that it was packed in Sri Lanka, but doesn't come right out and say where the chamomile is from.

The only problem is the same one that all TEViVE teas have, the teabags have half the contents of other brands. The box of 20 t...

Ban Cha Green Tea from Hime

65 / 100 Aroma: 6/10 Flavor: 2/5 Value: 5/5
Jul. 24th, 2019

This came recommended by RT leader Alex as a good budget bancha. And the price was very reasonable, about as little as anyone could expect to pay for a decent tea. It has a pleasant, earthy aroma, but the flavor is a little insipid. I wasn't expecting perfection tho - this is a reliable everyday green tea.

This is a well rounded tea - it is mellow and smooth, but has a good amount of earthy flavor too. The aroma is quite pleasant and it is offered at a good price.

Jul. 23rd, 2019

Caveat: While tolerant of them in some combinations and contexts, I'm not a big fan of either lemon or ginger. Please take this rating in the context of assessing the nominal mix of two flavors that, while not repulsive to me, aren't particular favorites either.

When I do have ginger, I look for it to give a good...

70 / 100 Aroma: 6/10 Flavor: 4/5 Value: 5/5
Jul. 22nd, 2019

I am a little confused about the labeling of this tea. It says it is high grown but the tea I have had from Ceylon that is grown at 6000 feet is usually a lot lighter in color and not quite as bold in taste. This tea is fairly dark in color and very bold in flavor. It actually taste like a blended tea or a lower grown ...

Jul. 19th, 2019

Here is another of Upton's new naturally flavored series. This does have a pleasant, believable peach taste, and it is enjoyable both hot and cold. The price is pretty high though - I think it is the most expensive flavored tea I have seen from Upton, and I wonder why. Maybe because it contains some flower petals as...

Jul. 17th, 2019

I got some of this because the Upton website said it was a favorite in their office, and I figure that they know what is good. This is clearly a cut above your average lemon-flavored black tea (like Bigelow's Lemon Lift, e.g.) The lemon flavor is fresh and tangy, and seems very much like the real thing. The base tea...

Jul. 16th, 2019

A pleasant, fruity aroma is the outstanding feature of this tea. This contains some juniper along with orange and lemon zest flavors, which gives it a dash of piny zing. It is pretty mild overall, and tastes better lukewarm than hot or iced, interestingly enough.

Jul. 15th, 2019

The box says that it's a blend of Keemun and Ceylon teas. There are notes of cocoa and dark bread crust and the flavor's quite complex for grocery store tea, but it's too bitter and astringent.

The tea gets better and mellows a bit as it cools. The cocoa becomes more pronounced and I can taste the sweetness from the...

Jul. 14th, 2019

This is definitely a young sheng (raw) pu-erh and that's really about all I know about this tea. I'd yet to try sheng pu-erh (young or old), so when I saw it in an Asian, mom-and-pop grocery for $4, I had to try it. There's no date anywhere on the package, so I've no idea what year it's from, but it can't be very old b...

Tropical fruits, peaches, and flavored black teas all tickle my fancy, so this offering from a Dollar Tree store promised to be worthwhile, as long as they used natural flavors (check), and didn't skimp on the flavoring itself (check). [TEViVE could use more tea, however...more on that below.]

As with their other...

This is a go-to breakfast tea for me. It's a little on the lighter side, not as robust as some of my other choices, but good for a slow. leisurely wake up.

Earl Grey teas are often my favorites, but I'm surprised that I like this blend better than Palais des Thes traditional earl grey. This one was absolutely delightful and really made my day better just by sipping it. I will be looking for again!
