Soba-cha Buckwheat Tea from Maeda-en

Style: Herbal Tea – Region: ?????

70 / 100 Aroma: 8/10 Flavor: 3/5 Value: 5/5
May. 11th, 2020

I used to love roasted barley tea, but I've since become gluten-free, and barley contains gluten, so I can no longer drink it. I decided to tack this onto an order from Maeda-en because I was hoping that it would be a good substitute.

Now, to give you some perspective on where my review is coming from, I think buckw...

English Breakfast Lemon from Twinings

Style: Fruit Black Tea – Region: Blend

48 / 100 Aroma: 5/10 Flavor: 3/5 Value: 3/5
May. 11th, 2020

Dry or steeping, this tea smells of lemon candy.

The tea is pretty one-dimensional. The flavor is lemony with a slightly astringent, smoky finish. The spent teabags have a curious pink tinge to them. I'm guessing that it might be something like hibiscus for tartness, though none is specifically listed in the ingredi...

Cup at home, made from leaves of black tea mixed with tiny pieces of orange peel, cornflower and what looks like some other fruit - small white caramelised pieces.

Half-litre pot at home, made from fine, small black and dark brown leaves of Ceylon and Chinese black tea and tiny pieces of liquorice root - the blend emits a powerful scent of aniseed and liquorice.

May. 9th, 2020

Half-litre pot a home, made from a mixture of dried pieces of mango, peach, strawberries, raspberries, orange (some pieces as large as a quarter of a slice) and probably some other fruit, too (this is a new tea, and a description is not available on the tea company's website yet), but no tea leaves. Pours clear peach y...

May. 9th, 2020

Half-litre pot at home, made from a mixture of lemongrass, dried mint and raspberry leaves, cardamom, rose and mallow blossom, and tiny pieces of liquorice root - a purely herbal Ayurvedic wellness concoction with not a touch of tea leaves in it.

78 / 100 Aroma: 6/10 Flavor: 4/5 Value: 5/5
May. 7th, 2020

I really like this genmaicha. Aside from tea in Asian restaurants, this is the only genmaicha that I've ever tasted. The kind that I have (I'm not sure if they've changed the recipe or not) has sorghum in addition to rice. It has a great, nutty, roasted flavor. There isn't much caffeine to it. I'm amazed that this tea ...

Australian Sencha from The Tea Centre

80 / 100 Aroma: 8/10 Flavor: 4/5 Value: 3/5
May. 4th, 2020

I know this might sound like a strange criticism, but I think that the worst thing about this tea is that it's been labeled "sencha." I say this because the profile of this tea in terms of taste and scent doesn't match the ideal for a sencha. But, it has a very good, very unique profile, in my opinion. The disappointme...

Somerset Estate BOP from Upton Tea Imports

Style: Black Tea – Region: Sri Lanka / Ceylon

50 / 100 Aroma: 7/10 Flavor: 2/5 Value: 4/5
May. 4th, 2020

An unspectacular but good enough Ceylon tea. The aroma has a hint of freshly baked muffins to it. A 3 minute steep (which is what the directions called for) results in a bland but perfectly drinkable beverage.

Assam Tea Bags from Taylors of Harrogate

Style: Assam – Region: Assam, India

68 / 100 Aroma: 7/10 Flavor: 4/5 Value: 4/5
May. 4th, 2020

The dry tea has almost no odor at all. The teabag smells slightly woody, which could either be from the tea or the paper. The tea looks to be CTC pellets that were ground up further. I wonder if the "Pure Assam" that this tea seems to have replaced was orthodox tea and that's the difference.

This tea smells tannic a...

English Breakfast Tea Bags from Taylors of Harrogate

Style: English Breakfast – Region: Blend

72 / 100 Aroma: 7/10 Flavor: 4/5 Value: 4/5
May. 4th, 2020

Each bag contains 2.5g of what looks like ground up CTC pellets. There's very little scent from the dry tea. It smells faintly woody, like a new newspaper.

This tea brews up dark. Before I've finished pouring the water, the tea is already darker than most black teas end up. By the time brewing's done, it's a deep br...

May. 1st, 2020

Dry, this tea smells vaguely of cocoa and molasses. It's understated, but pleasant. While brewing, the aroma is of light brown sugar, but not heavy. The cocoa from earlier is still there, but less pronounced than I expected based on the initial aroma and experience with other Sri Lankan teas. There's a faint note of ra...

Apr. 30th, 2020

I was blown away by this when I first tried it, but a little less so now. Btw it has a slight name and number change: it is now Blue Flower Earl Grey, NT16. The use of flowers and flavoring adds a unique and refreshing twist to the Earl Grey model. The base tea is fairly light, and I think they have reduced the inte...

Cardamom Masala Chai from Vahdam Teas

Style: Chai / Spiced Tea – Region: Kerala, India

50 / 100 Aroma: 6/10 Flavor: 3/5 Value: 2/5
Apr. 27th, 2020

I enjoyed this tea but, in my opinion, it lacked aroma, robustness and body. The balance between the cardamom and the tea was ok, the caradamom was not overwhleming but the tea aromas were too subtle for me.

I like Vahdam teas, but this one wasn't one of my favourite cups.

Apr. 24th, 2020

This has a pleasant, grassy aroma that comes thru clearly. The dominant flavor is herbal bitterness, but it does not become overbearing when brewed according to the directions. The price could not be better for an organic product. This is a good choice for an everyday green tea.

A mild earthy aroma. Taste is mild with a slight woodsy after taste. Nice dark brown liquor. Very pleasant over all. This is a tea for anytime of the day sipping.

This tea has a pleasant mild earthiness. The liquor is a dark brown color. Mild flavor, with a subtle sweet/honey after taste. Certainly worth a try. I will purchase this tea again in the future.

Apr. 22nd, 2020

This is certainly a robust-tasting tea. It has some iron-like tannins and malty, smoky notes. The second infusion was a bit of a letdown - it had already lost a fair amount of its flavor by then. This was not super thrilling, but it was well worth the rock-bottom price.

You simply can't go wrong with this tea. The average tea drinker who buys bags of Lipton or Tetley would probably agree, because this is like a premium version of those products. This is smooth and pleasant, but not lacking in flavor. It contains dashes of caramel, fruit, steely tannins and a fresh, leafy aroma. It...

82 / 100 Aroma: 8/10 Flavor: 4/5 Value: 4/5
Apr. 19th, 2020

This is my favorite of Republic’s chocolate line. The red velvet taste is distinguishable. It is a very good tea. I would like something with a bit stronger of a chocolate taste. I find that the rooibos tends to come out more, but then again perhaps that is because I oversteep this one.
