Scottish Morn from Harney and Sons

Style: Black Tea – Region: Blend

85 / 100 Aroma: 10/10 Flavor: 4/5 Value: 4/5
Feb. 25th, 2024

Wonderful strong aroma, Assam and Ceylon blend offer a pleasant earthy aroma. Nice brisk tea. I buy sachets for when I have breakfast at a restaurant. This is a great tea for the first cup of the morning. I will buy this again.

Season's Pick Assam GFOP Organic from Upton Tea Imports

Style: Assam – Region: Assam, India

80 / 100 Aroma: 9/10 Flavor: 4/5 Value: 4/5
Feb. 25th, 2024

The aroma is nice, but mild, it has the earthy with hint od spice that is expected from a Assam. The liquor (5min steep) is a pleasant deep brown. The flavor is very mild with no after taste. Certainly, a decent all day sipping tea, with nothing remarkable about the tase.

85 / 100 Aroma: 9/10 Flavor: 5/5 Value: 4/5
Feb. 24th, 2024

Given how much of a waste of time and steeping water Whittard's standard Earl Grey was, expectations for this version ran low. What a pleasant surprise instead!

Not only did this tea actually have a detectable and pleasant aroma upon opening the wrapper and sniffing the dry bag, that carried over quite strongly i...

85 / 100 Aroma: 8/10 Flavor: 5/5 Value: 5/5
Feb. 24th, 2024

The aroma is earthy with a some notes of honey. The liquor is a deep brown/amber (5min steep). Bold flavor, with a bit of tartness. Slight smoky after taste. Good choice.

Feb. 21st, 2024

Here's another box of this brand that I got overpriced at a Black Hills souvenir store. Like the others, the bags are both small and underfilled, docking the "value" category, despite this being a decent-tasting blend.

The dry-bag aroma came across as a disjointed melange of a lot of stuff, much akin to the "unde...

Feb. 6th, 2024

I've only chugged one other green tea of the Mao Feng type (a Tazo bagged offering), and enjoyed that, so I figured I'd try a bigger-leaf, sacheted version. This is one of the best green teas I've had, lots of personality, and mostly worth the slight premium one pays when shoveling a stack of bills across the counter ...

74 / 100 Aroma: 8/10 Flavor: 4/5 Value: 4/5
Feb. 4th, 2024

Whittard has a single-sourced English Breakfast by name (from West Java), and an entirely different tea more of the traditional EB style—this one—composed of Ceylon and Kenya teas. Unlike the named EB, I couldn't find Festive Breakfast on Whittard's website, but instead, got it as part of a gift assortment.

Culinary Teas Earl Grey from Culinary Teas

Style: Earl Grey Tea – Region: ?????

65 / 100 Aroma: 8/10 Flavor: 2/5 Value: 4/5
Jan. 29th, 2024

This is a pleasant EG, but very much on the lighter side. There is not a lot of bergamot flavor, and the tea is a little thin - but it makes a perfectly enjoyable cup. I would recommend this to someone who likes a mild Earl Grey.

Jan. 25th, 2024

As much Murchie's tea as I've ordered, chugged and rated, and as strongly as I love peppermint, this was only a matter of time. Usually, I get a quick box of somebody's peppermint tea (usually Celestial Seasonings, which I've rated highly) at a retail store and go with that. However, lately amid price inflation of al...

Lavender Earl Grey from Culinary Teas

Style: Earl Grey Tea – Region: ?????

75 / 100 Aroma: 9/10 Flavor: 3/5 Value: 4/5
Jan. 20th, 2024

This has a little lavender flavor plus a lot in the potpourri-like aroma, and there is plenty of bergamot too. With lemon or lime and sugar, it has a candied orange peel flavor. I preferred it with milk and sugar, which is a little more subtle. A good change of pace from the usual Earl Grey.

German Gingerbread from Culinary Teas

Jan. 15th, 2024

This was my least favorite of the 3 holiday-spice-cookie teas that I got from Culinary. It tastes somewhat like gingerbread, but it could use some more sweetness and spice. I had it with almond milk, and it is possible that had a negative effect on the taste.

Christmas Cookie Tea from Culinary Teas

Jan. 12th, 2024

Served with milk and sugar, this really tastes just like a Christmas cookie (i.e. a sugar cookie with sprinkles). This is a very successful attempt at duplicating/translating a flavor from a baked item to a tea. It is made with calendula, jasmine, cinnamon, and cocoa, but mostly I taste buttery vanilla cookies (with ...

Baroness Grey from Culinary Teas

70 / 100 Aroma: 8/10 Flavor: 3/5 Value: 4/5
Jan. 11th, 2024

I will always give a flavored Earl Grey a try; sometimes they are very impressive, sometimes not. It is interesting to see how the teamakers alter the EG formula - I have had them with lavender, chocolate, rose, and vanilla, maybe others too. This Baroness adds lemon, cornflower, and rose along with the bergamot (and...

Jan. 10th, 2024

Two background caveats here:
1. I'm not a big fan of overt rose scent in beverages; something about drinking common garden flowers that I've cultivated, like rose, marigold or lavender, still seems weird to me (even though I do like jasmine tea...go figure!).
2. I haven't had rose congou tea from China yet, for com...

Jan. 10th, 2024

I am trying out a new tea provider that I saw here on RateTea - Culinary, and so far I am happy with them. I like that they sell tea by the ounce, so that a customer can purchase as much as he likes. This is a well-balanced, holiday spiced tea, with cinnamon, clove, and orange. I didn't taste much of the blackberry ...

Gorkha Estate Himalayan Bliss from Upton Tea Imports

70 / 100 Aroma: 8/10 Flavor: 4/5 Value: 3/5
Jan. 4th, 2024

This is a smooth, mild tea - but not lacking in flavor. It seems similar to a good quality Darjeeling or a Ceylon. A little overpriced imo, but good.

Dec. 28th, 2023

Looking over the large ingredients list for a loose tea (Keemun and Ceylon tea, cinnamon, ginger, fennel, cocoa nibs, cardamom seeds, roasted carob, Indian sarsparilla root, natural and artificial flavors), it seemed a little disjointed. I wasn't sure this was going to work. I'll assure that it does, very nicely.

Dec. 24th, 2023

Given how unimpressed I've been with most of Whittard's offerings so far, this was a pleasant surprise. English Breakfast is their advertised "No. 01" mainstay tea since the Victorian era, at least in loose-leaf form, so presumably the bagged version shouldn't be terribly different.

Though not very strong, the dry...

Dec. 17th, 2023

This tea came from a Middle Eastern eatery, and I took home an extra bag to try on home well water (instead of our heavily chlorinated city stuff that gets fishy this time of year when the lake turns over). Turns out not all the "fishy" element was from the water!

Here's the second Earl Grey tea in a row I've rev...

For those who enjoy both coconut and almond, this seasonal tea should be heavenly. Sweetened enough, it's like marzipan candy in a teacup. I'm not a big fan of nuts in general, with almond probably being the one I can tolerate best, so the tea likely rates lower for me than it could otherwise. Still, the good news f...

Dec. 9th, 2023

Here's a rare flavored black tea where the flavor itself is fairly feeble, and the tea dominates it (not necessarily in a good way, either). Save your money and get an off-brand, food-service tea at a cheap motel, for an experience that is comparable, if not better.

I got this from a gift pack of sampler boxes, wi...

"Harvest Blend" firmly ranks among the few best herbal teas I've had, and it's a store-brand product. A few options are out there for excellent, comparably delicious, fall-winter, "cinnamoney" seasonal herbal teas, but with the value of a low price point innate to Trader Joe's, I can't think of any better for the buck...

Dec. 3rd, 2023

The photo is from Whittard's website where (as of this writing) 50 round, stringless bags sell for USD $9.50, not too bad for what I presume to be a decent-quality Darjeeling. [They also sell loose-leaf Darjeeling.] Mine came from a 5-bag sampler pack, each bag being of the fold-over type stapled to a string and tag....

Teekanne does a lot of variations of some of the same herbs in assorted combinations—much as Celestial seasonings with its many "Zinger" teas and similar—but with Teekanne using material like fennel, licorice, and a couple others not often found in American herbals. Here, they toss in thyme with the fennel and lic...

Weird tea, but to me at least, pleasantly so! Connoisseurs of complex-flavored tea should like this, unless those flavors are not favorites. First off, the dry-leaf aroma (in the plastic sack), in-cup smell and taste are remarkably consistent with each other.

The hard part is describing what they are. I can see...
