Fat Elvis Rooibos Tea from Fava Tea Company

Style: Rooibos – Region: ?????

75 / 100 Aroma: 9/10 Flavor: 4/5 Value: 4/5
Apr. 23rd, 2019

This tea smells really good when it's in the bag. It has a strong banana smell, however it stills smells good in the cup but not as good. I tasted a hint of banana while drinking it and this is quiet interesting.

Pure Peppermint from Twinings

Style: Peppermint Tea – Region: ?????

48 / 100 Aroma: 4/10 Flavor: 3/5 Value: 3/5
Apr. 21st, 2019

Once again, I drank a Twinings product, wondering how this brand gained enough of a reputation or loyalty to have lasted so long. The peppermint in these bags wasn't bad, but wasn't great either. Lots of stems too! It reminded me a lot of cheap/knock-off store brands or some of the lower-quality food-service pepperm...

Apr. 19th, 2019

Mmmmmmm...delicious from the first dry-bag sniff through the cup and even in the aftertaste! Finally again, for only the second time in my experience: a coconut-flavored green tea that really is coconut-dominant, and since I enjoy coconut a lot, that's a good thing.

The best part is that the coconut flavor asser...

70 / 100 Aroma: 7/10 Flavor: 4/5 Value: 4/5
Apr. 17th, 2019

The only difference I've detected between this product and regular Sleepytime is the addition of valerian root to the ingredients list, and a caution on the side of the box about not driving or operating machinery after using, as if this is some herbal-tea version of Ambien or Sominex. Of course, it's not. I'm writin...

Fava Tea Company Chocolate Mint Rooibos Tea from Fava Tea Company

65 / 100 Aroma: 7/10 Flavor: 3/5 Value: 4/5
Apr. 15th, 2019

I'm not a big mint fan but I thought I would give this a try. It's a good quality tea but for me it's too minty but after putting some sweetener in it was better.

Apr. 14th, 2019

Too bad this tea has been discontinued, because it's an acceptable (not great to the point of blowing one's mind, but pretty decent) take on rooibos/herbal blending. As with other rooibos teas I've tried, the first impression wasn't anything to brag about, but it grew on me after a few bags, and I came to appreciate i...

Apr. 14th, 2019

Estate sales can be an unconventional way to try new teas upon which one normally wouldn't gamble the full cost of purchase. In this case, the tea apparently has been retired, and can't be bought anymore, but was shrink-wrapped in the box (never opened) and still in fresh condition. [I got it as part of a larger grab...

Apr. 13th, 2019

This is the second tea I’ve tried that mixes a green tea with matcha powder in a teabag. It wasn’t bad! I enjoyed my second test more than my first. Like the Celestial Seasonings offering that mixes green tea with matcha powder, this tea is better than the average bagged cheap green tea I’ve tried, as it increase...

This is another great tea from the Fava Tea company. I bought five different rooibos teas from them and they all got packaged in a nice black resealable pouch. It even had a hand written note with it to thank me for the order and a ton of flyers about tea and the benefits of it. Great packaging and fast shipping. Also ...

Green Tea Matcha from Celestial Seasonings

80 / 100 Aroma: 8/10 Flavor: 4/5 Value: 5/5
Apr. 7th, 2019

I’ve decided to try a few blends of matcha with other green tea and started with this brand. Given that I’ve never been overwhelmingly impressed with Celestial Seasonings, it was better than expected!

Though it cannot take the place of an actual matcha craving, the addition of matcha added a bit of sweetness and...

85 / 100 Aroma: 8/10 Flavor: 4/5 Value: 5/5
Apr. 6th, 2019

Found this in a Chinese market at the mall in Arcadia, CA. They had a huge selection of teas. I picked up a couple of ounces of this. It was priced at $30 per pound.

It is a very dark tea, black actually, and it has a heavy, smoky smell. However, after brewing the flavor is not as intense as you would expect. The br...

Style: Darjeeling Black Tea – Region: Darjeeling, India

57 / 100 Aroma: 6/10 Flavor: 4/5 Value: 2/5
Apr. 4th, 2019

At first glance, the tea looks odd for Twinings. Twinings's loose teas are usually broken leaf, but the pieces are much larger and appear to be better quality than what goes into the teabags. The Darjeeling is different. The loose tea pieces are tiny and uniform and look exactly like what goes into the teabags. Like mo...

Camomile, Honey & Vanilla from Twinings

Style: Herbal Tea – Region: Blend

19 / 100 Aroma: 3/10 Flavor: 1/5 Value: 3/5
Apr. 2nd, 2019

Dry, the aroma of vanilla is strong and it smells kind of like eggnog. The camomile lends a woody smell so that the overall impression is a bit like perfumed potpourri.

The brewing tea smells of honey surrounded by sweet pastry and the impression is of honeyed biscuits. The flavor is strongly vanilla, so much so tha...

Apr. 1st, 2019

Aside from the blackcurrant, the flavoring in this is rather subtle. The tea base is moderately rich and has a darkness in color as well as taste. It is almost a bit too tart but that's where the faint vanilla and caramel rescue it to give it some sweetness.

It's a good example of blending done well with flavoring...

Kalami Assam Indian Tea from Ahmad Tea

85 / 100 Aroma: 8/10 Flavor: 4/5 Value: 4/5
Mar. 30th, 2019

Ahmad Tea provides some of the best values in entry-level loose leaf tea out there.

Their Kalami Assam beautifully exemplifies all that we adore about Assam teas. The leaf aroma is malty, earthy, and slightly vegetal.

I used 1 tsp per cup infused for about 4 minutes. Brew is richly brown and copper in the cup. ...

Being a sucker for all kinds of strong and/or spicy food and drink, I've grown quite fond of good chais, in all their wonderful variety of formulations. As such, my default will be to rate them fairly well unless they prove unfit for human consumption. This rates well. It's not up to par with most loose chais I've h...

In general I don;t like Rooibos, but this has green in it and a bunch of fruity peach flavoring. Supposedly also contains dandelion leaf. Not a big fan of this one.

Mar. 27th, 2019

This has a smooth, rich flavor, although with a touch of sharpness (short steeping time is better). It practically begs to have milk added, which I don't typically do. Taken black, I find it a little lacking in sweetness. The aroma comes more from the Ceylon and is pleasantly nutty, while the Assam ensures a malty fini...

I was surprised off the bat by the unexpected aroma from the brewing tea. Instead of an Assam or Ceylon blend, it smells like inexpensive Yunnan teabags like Foojoy. It's smoky, earthy and woodsy.

The flavor reinforces my guess that this blend is predominantly Chinese. Astringent without bitterness, this tea tastes ...

Mar. 25th, 2019

I'm not a fan. It smells nice dry, kind of like a cinnamon roll. Brewed, the grain aroma from the barley takes over. I can see what they're going for and the chicory, carob and spices combine to give the passable impression of a mocha coffee, but there's too much dark bread crust for my taste.

I don't think this rea...

English Breakfast from Stash Tea

Mar. 24th, 2019

The most notable aspect of the flavor is that it's tannic, although not overly so. Still, it lacks much else to recommend it. I'd rather it had a bit more citrus to balance it, but there's just not a lot to it.

This strikes me as a tea perhaps intended for coffee drinkers looking to switch it up. It's also mild en...
