Sleeping Dragon from Adagio Teas

Style: Green Tea – Region: Fujian, China

40 / 100 Aroma: 8/10 Flavor: 2/5 Value: 4/5
Jan. 11th, 2018

Overall this was not a great tea at all. I used no sugar and steeped for just above 2 minutes at 170 degrees. Although I fiddled the temperature around with no success.
The tea smells nice and is almost fruity.
Everything comes crashing down in the flavor though. It tastes like I took old vegetable broth and poured i...

Peach Oolong (Peachy Oolong) from Adagio Teas

Style: Flavored Oolong – Region: Taiwan / Formosa

86 / 100 Aroma: 10/10 Flavor: 4/5 Value: 5/5
Jan. 11th, 2018

Possibly not the best tea for you based on the other ratings on this tea. But I found it to be spectacular! It is a much darker oolong and could even be mistaken for a black tea by a non-enthusiast. It has an extremely peachy smell when you open up the box that flows through your nose. The taste is not very complex, an...

Prince of Wales (Loose) from Twinings

Style: Black Tea – Region: China

75 / 100 Aroma: 8/10 Flavor: 4/5 Value: 4/5
Jan. 10th, 2018

Less tannic and lighter than English Breakfast blends, this tea is my go-to for afternoon sipping. A quintessential Chinese offering and packed in a tin.

Pure Assam Leaf Tea from Taylors of Harrogate

Style: Black Tea – Region: Assam, India

60 / 100 Aroma: 6/10 Flavor: 3/5 Value: 4/5
Jan. 10th, 2018

A second-flush season black tea, this comes from the Brahmaputra valley. Light liquor with a moderate aroma and flavor. I found this tea to be a little too subtle and shy.

Coconut Macadamia Herbal from Hawaiian Islands Tea Company

Style: Flavored Rooibos – Region: Blend

55 / 100 Aroma: 5/10 Flavor: 3/5 Value: 3/5
Jan. 10th, 2018

Being a big fan of that taste, this is the third coconut-flavored tea I've tried and reviewed, and the weakest of them all.

All I saw in the dry bag was rooibos, no evidence of real coconut or macadamia pieces. This steeps up like every other decent rooibos: a nice reddish color, with rooibos itself being the over...

Japanese Green Tea from Kirkland Signature / Costco

Style: Green Tea – Region: Japan

72 / 100 Aroma: 7/10 Flavor: 4/5 Value: 4/5
Jan. 8th, 2018

Surprisingly, this is one of the better bagged green teas I've had. A store brand for Costco, it's not expensive; so I assigned a good "value" rating despite receiving it at no extra cost in a package of teas provided by lodging.

Bags are individually plastic-wrapped. Upon ripping one open, an unmistakable matcha...

Assam Leaf Tea - Doomur Dullung from Taylors of Harrogate

Jan. 7th, 2018

I found this expired tea tin, never opened and safely sealed, in a small import store when I was home over break. Knowing how well Assam teas can keep, I was curious to try it, and I was pleasantly surprised to find this tea much more aromatic than I would expect for something harvested around 4 years ago.

Jasmine Tea (16 ct.) from Yamamotoyama

56 / 100 Aroma: 7/10 Flavor: 3/5 Value: 3/5
Jan. 7th, 2018

I've only tried and reviewed a few jasmine greens so far, but Yamamotoyama's is the first whose jasmine aroma (dry bag and wet cup) clearly stood as vastly stronger than the flavor. The jasmine taste was detectable, no mistaking it, but couldn't deliver on the promise made by the smell. The aroma took me back to warm...

Pineapple Waikiki Black Tea from Hawaiian Islands Tea Company

64 / 100 Aroma: 10/10 Flavor: 2/5 Value: 3/5
Jan. 7th, 2018

Being a fan of pineapple as a taste, and seeing that this offering was reasonably inexpensive (for Hawaii anyway) at the Wal Mart in Kona, I figured to give it a try. While not bad, each step of the process disappointed me a bit more, leaving an impression less favorable than the potential.

Each tea bag in a standa...

Organic Countess of Seville from DAVIDsTEA

90 / 100 Aroma: 10/10 Flavor: 5/5 Value: 3/5
Jan. 4th, 2018

This tea has little bits of blue cornflower and bits of some citrus rind, so it looks nice. The tea leaves are not cut up, but whole. It smells strongly of bergamot. The flavour is strong on bergamot, not very strong of citrus, which I like. I'm not a fan of citrusy earl grey, but this one has only a hint of citrus ar...

25 / 100 Aroma: 8/10 Flavor: 2/5 Value: 3/5
Jan. 4th, 2018

This "tea" does not look like tea, but like a pile of nuts and dried fruits. It smells delicious, like nuts, apples, a bit of cinnamon or clove. However, the taste is not great. It is not a strong flavour, a bit one note, flat, mostly of nuts, like warm nut water, which is basically what it is. It seems to be popular, ...

80 / 100 Aroma: 9/10 Flavor: 4/5 Value: 3/5
Jan. 4th, 2018

This tea looks very festive, with little candy canes. It smells great, of peppermint and vanilla. The taste is like black tea, with a relatively strong vanilla taste (somewhat artificial tasting) and just a bit of peppermint. I love this tea, despite the slightly artificial vanilla taste. It is not too sweet and too mi...

Organic Cream of Earl Grey from DAVIDsTEA

40 / 100 Aroma: 8/10 Flavor: 2/5 Value: 3/5
Jan. 4th, 2018

This tea looks and smells wonderful. However, the flavour of "cream" (to me it tastes like fake vanilla flavouring) is overpowering and bergamot gets lost.This seems to be a fan favourite, but I dislike it. Would not buy again.

Jan. 4th, 2018

This tea looks gorgeous. It smells very much like cloves, very Christmassy. However, the taste is more regular mild black tea with a hint of spice (cinnamon and clove), a bit drying in the mouthfeel. It is not overly sweet, though it says that it has some sugar in it. It would be great for Christmas season, and winter ...

Jan. 4th, 2018

Based on my experiences with black gunpowder, I was not surprised that this doesn't taste like Mao Feng at all. It's more like other Chinese black teas I've had. It's got just a tiny little bit of sweetness but it's hardly there. It's pleasantly almost-bitter (but I did make it pretty strong).
Resteeps quite decently...

Jan. 1st, 2018

The dry tea in the bags is finely chopped and smells strong and malty, like most grocery store Assam blends.

I steeped it for four minutes in boiling water and the brewed tea is more complex than I expected. The strong malt flavor has chocolate and molasses notes that set it apart from other Assam blends. It's moder...

Jan. 1st, 2018

This tea is interesting - the little pearls unfurl as it steeps, and it releases the most wonderful jasmine aroma. I discovered it in a fine Asian diner when a pot of it was placed on the table. It's wonderful flower scent drew me in, and I had two cups of it. Ever since, this has been a staple in my tea cabinet for gu...

65 / 100 Aroma: 7/10 Flavor: 3/5 Value: 4/5
Dec. 31st, 2017

The can calls this "green tea", but it's clearly a jade oolong. It's much better quality than Starway's other oolong teas. It's mediocre compared to other Taiwanese high mountain oolongs, but they're usually much more expensive than this.

The dry tea smells fresh, mellow and pleasant. There's no hint of a roast. The...

Compared to another tea at twice the price same brew time, same water amount and same cup style. Was hard to tell them apart. For the price and ease of purchase worth the money for an everyday cup.

Dec. 20th, 2017

A fascinating and really enjoyable tea that was unlike any oolong I have ever tried before, but still shared some of my favorite qualities of oolongs. This tea had a soft and gentle quality, like the edge had been taken off relative to the green or black Assam teas I have been sampling recently.

I had no idea what ...

Dec. 20th, 2017

This Earl Grey Tea is one of my favorites. I *never* steep this tea for more than 2-2.5 minutes. I like the fact that it takes less time to steep than other brands and I still get the caffeine and taste that I expect from Earl Grey.

However it isnt overly caffeinated, but this is another reason I like it. Sometimes ...

Dec. 19th, 2017

This tea smells very warming and spicy, it smells very strongly of nutmeg. The plain tea itself is quite thin bodied and not super great, however, when you add milk and sugar, this tea is delicious and has a good flavor reminding me of the holidays. I generally like Numi teas however this one isn’t my favorite. I wou...

I really like herbal tea, which is why I rated this one pretty high. This herbal tea in particular was really good though, much better than celestial seasonings in my opinion. The flavor is very smooth and not astringent at all and it has a very cinnamon and sweet flavor. It says this tea has no sugar added, but it tas...

Not a bad tea at all. I usually double bag it though since I like my tea strong and plentiful. I've had a lot of this as my old work used to stock it and I was never disappointed per se, but always wished it was a little better.
