Picture of Organic Decaf Sencha Green Tea Bag

Organic Decaf Sencha Green Tea Bag from Yamamotoyama

Style: Sencha – Region: Japan

50 / 100 Aroma: 6/10 Flavor: 3/5 Value: 2/5
Feb. 12th, 2020

Standard decaf green tea. I would not distinguish this as a special "sencha" one might look for. I was hoping Yamamotoyama's decaf sencha would taste like sencha, but it just tastes like standard chinese decaf bulk cheap teabag tea. The taste of every decaf green tea I have tried is the same. The process of de-caffeina...

Hot Brandy 2016 from white2tea

45 / 100 Aroma: 6/10 Flavor: 2/5 Value: 2/5
Feb. 11th, 2020

I commend White2Tea for the attempt at combining white tea with black tea in a cake like this. It was an interesting experiment. But, while the taste really isn't bad, the effect it has on me is very uncomfortable. That also hasn't changed over the years (I've had this cake for a while and have been aging it and period...

English Breakfast from Lipton Tea

Feb. 11th, 2020

I bring news! Whether it's good news or not is up to the reader. This tea, as a brand with the same name, is not retired after all, as of Feb. 2020. Instead, it has found its way to the food-service division of Unilever, Lipton's corporate overlord. I'll upload a photo of its newest packaging separately. I was abl...

Organic Spring Blossom White Tea from Trader Joe's

Style: White Tea – Region: Darjeeling, India

41 / 100 Aroma: 6/10 Flavor: 2/5 Value: 2/5
Feb. 10th, 2020

This was my first Darjeeling white tea, and it's about as impressive as sitting through an hour-long staff meeting with a well-advertised, nicely dressed, but ultimately monotonic guest speaker droning on about an uninteresting subject.

At first, I was intrigued. The best part of the experience was the dry-bag ar...

Nightlife 2017 from white2tea

Feb. 9th, 2020

I wasn't feeling well lately. I think I may have caught the flu, which has been going around. I tried a remedy of tea and herbs that often helps me, but it wore of quickly. So, I felt the urge to try some of this white tea, because I remember something I was told by someone regarding white tea being considered medicine...

Hu-Kwa Tea from Mark T. Wendell

Style: Lapsang Souchong – Region: Taiwan / Formosa

80 / 100 Aroma: 8/10 Flavor: 4/5 Value: 5/5
Feb. 8th, 2020

As expected the aroma is similar to a pine forest on fire, or a freshly paved road. For those new to lapsing souchong, it might be a bit intimidating. Those who are adverse to trying because of the aroma are missing out on a wonderful cup of tea. The liquor is a deep amber color. The flavor is nice. Once brewed, the bu...

Chai (formerly Indian Spiced Chai) from Twinings

Style: Chai / Spiced Tea – Region: ?????

75 / 100 Aroma: 8/10 Flavor: 4/5 Value: 5/5
Feb. 7th, 2020

I got a coupon from Twinings to replace some decaffeinated Earl Gray, which was really quite awful, and I decided to spend it on this.

The spices were a tad different than other chai tea bags I'd had before. I've had chai in restaurants and have bought tea bags in the Indian sector of a nearby city, and the spices i...

0 / 100 Aroma: 1/10 Flavor: 1/5 Value: 1/5
Feb. 7th, 2020

I suspected something was wrong with the quality (or lack thereof) of this tea when I opened up the tin and there was no scent. (Side note: The best by date isn't for about 2 years, so that's not the issue.) Some teas have a very, very light scent, though. So, I tried to suspend judgment and brewed a cup as the packagi...

Chamomile from Lipton Tea

65 / 100 Aroma: 6/10 Flavor: 4/5 Value: 4/5
Feb. 7th, 2020

Let's play tea detective. This product was a bit perplexing—not because of anything having to do with its own properties, but because it took some digging to find exactly this stuff online. Lipton sells a "Relax" branded chamomile in retail—on its site and in some stores—but I don't know if this is the same stu...

Organic Autumn Harvest Black Tea from Trader Joe's

Style: Black Tea – Region: Blend

69 / 100 Aroma: 6/10 Flavor: 4/5 Value: 4/5
Feb. 6th, 2020

This is not to be confused with the apparently much-better-known Trader Joe's "Harvest Blend" herbal tea, which is a completely different product. Instead, this black tea came in a 10-bag sealed wrapper, tucked into one of four squares of a wooden gift box. The outside paper wrapper of the gift box describes all four...

Very pale yellow liquor, delicate flavor. More aroma than taste for me. Tasty, but a bit too subtle for my old palate

61 / 100 Aroma: 7/10 Flavor: 4/5 Value: 2/5
Jan. 30th, 2020

I love chai overall, so they tend to skew high in my ratings unless they either simply suck, or as in this case, are "just" decent while being overpriced. [Though I was served a couple bags of this tea at a Corner Bakery outlet, I based "value" on the online pricing.] My version came in a rectangular sachet sewn on t...

Style: Oriental Beauty – Region: Vietnam

40 / 100 Aroma: 6/10 Flavor: 1/5 Value: 1/5
Jan. 29th, 2020

This gets some good reviews on Upton's website and sells for an above average price, but it didn't do much for me. The aroma is pleasant enough, but the flavor is bland and weak. I can't recommend this one.

Passion Filterbag from Tazo Tea

72 / 100 Aroma: 7/10 Flavor: 4/5 Value: 4/5
Jan. 23rd, 2020

Aroma is very citrus driven with a subtle spice. The flavor is strong in this tea and a single tea bag can support 16 ounces of hot water. I like this tea because it’s almost like having a wild fermented beer with the acid presence. That said, it’s fairly one note.

Jan. 23rd, 2020

This tea smells just like a glazed lemon loaf. Really incredible. The flavor is subtle but enjoyable. I’d recommend not using more than 8 ounces to ensure it isn’t too diluted. For the price, this tea is really solid (3 dollars for 20 bags).

Jan. 23rd, 2020

I had this tea at a local restaurant (in a bag) and got 2 cups out of 1 bag - even though the restaurant offered me a second bag. It had a slight grassy note but also a pleasant roasted flavor vaguely reminiscent of a barley or genmaicha. I really enjoyed this tea - hot - no lemon - no dairy - no sweetener.

Really disappointing tea. Needs milk and sugar to be palatable, and even then it has pretty weak flavor.

Ordered a Fujiian Black Tea sampler pack from Yunnan Sourcing and this was my second favorite. Nice and light with a good 2-3 re-steeps coming out of it. The rest of the sampler were richer more malty and coffee like tea's while this one was the lightest. Not a roasted or rich flavor but something easy to drink. Has a ...

30 / 100 Aroma: 5/10 Flavor: 1/5 Value: 1/5
Jan. 21st, 2020

Looks and smells like a proper gyokuro but completely misses on flavor. Very hard to steep, needs a low temp and short time to avoid turning it into an astringent bitter mess. Does not re-steep at all, one and done. Some of the vegetal taste of a gyokuro but like an artificial version, not balanced or rich.

It didn't taste like green tea. It didn't taste like kombucha. It didn't affect me like kombucha, which typically leaves me with a positive feeling. It actually gave me a headache, despite the fact that I've had all the ingredients in this tea separately and never had a negative reaction to any of them. The flavor wasn...

Half-litre pot at home. Tiny red brown and green leaves interpersed with pieces of dragon fruit (some quite large, about half an inch) and coconut chips. Pours clear golden with no sediment. Clear and intense aroma of dragon fruit and coconut, with distinct notes of rooibos. Sweetish, fruity flavour of dragon fruit, wi...

Half-litre pot at home. Pours clear dark amber with no sediment. Clear aroma of pure black tea, with very mild hints of orange. Delicate flavour of fine tea leaves, with barely discernible touches of bark. Bitter, slightly astringent palate with a gentle, slightly acidic aftertaste. Clean and of very fine quality, tast...
