Picture of Tung Ting Oolong

Tung Ting Oolong from Foojoy

Style: Jade Oolong – Region: Taiwan / Formosa

95 / 100 Aroma: 8/10 Flavor: 5/5 Value: 3/5
Jul. 10th, 2017

The scent of this is subtle, but the flavor is really wonderful. It's a lot like gardenias with hints of fruitiness and it sticks around in the mouth for a while. It's a very pleasing flavor and the floral aspect of it is deeper and more grounded than some of the lighter flowery flavors out there that can feel like the...

Hoji-cha, Roasted Green Tea (Loose) from Yamamotoyama

Style: Hojicha – Region: Japan

80 / 100 Aroma: 8/10 Flavor: 4/5 Value: 5/5
Jul. 10th, 2017

This tea has a beautiful, roasted scent and flavor. Depending upon how it's brewed, sometimes I taste hints of vegetal green tea. Other times, it's largely a roasted flavor without any bitterness and only a slight astringency, if any. It really reminds me of autumn, and it imparts this relaxing feeling that really help...

Traditional Yerba Mate Tea Bags from Guayaki

Style: Yerba Maté – Region: Blend

70 / 100 Aroma: 7/10 Flavor: 4/5 Value: 4/5
Jul. 9th, 2017

This is my first time trying yerba mate. To me, the scent reminds me a lot of tobacco, leather, and hay. There's a smoky quality to it that's in the background, which makes sense because this is smoke dried. The taste has something in it that is vaguely reminiscent of bay leaves or willow bark. Perhaps those who consum...

Organic Japanese Sencha from DAVIDsTEA

Style: Sencha – Region: Shizuoka, Japan

79 / 100 Aroma: 7/10 Flavor: 3/5 Value: 5/5
Jul. 9th, 2017

Of all the pure teas I've gotten from David's, this is the first one to not stand out from the crowd. It is not a bad tea at all. Like mostly everything I've tried at David's, it is above average. It is just not as impressive as some of the other Greens and Oolongs I have purchased there. This is one of the lowest p...

Tian Mu from De Theefabriek

Style: Green Tea – Region: Zhejiang, China

63 / 100 Aroma: 7/10 Flavor: 3/5 Value: 3/5
Jul. 9th, 2017

It's a lovely summer day, so I cycled the 26 kilometres to De Theefabriek again. This time I didn't even visit the tea museum (which I've already seen twice), just bought teas and drank a cup of Tian Mu in the tearoom.

I feel like they always give water at 100°C and many more leaves than I'd use myself, so I only l...

Zen Filterbags from Tazo Tea

Jul. 9th, 2017

A couple of bags of this product wandered into my fingers, then into my suitcase (of their own free will—don't you believe me?) from a conference hotel's catered-breakfast table. It would have taken at least two more to yield a robustly flavored cup. The taste was best described as pleasant but distant, akin to the...

Jul. 4th, 2017

I absolutely love this tea and can not find it to buy anywhere. We go to a local diner where they carry this and I can buy a box from them, but it is an inconvenience some times. I would love to be able to buy this. I live in New England in the state of New Hampshire. If I can purchase this somewhere, I would love ...

Jul. 2nd, 2017

Milk and sugar makes this tea complete. The sugar, milk and added sweetness creates a lovely balance. The notes of the black tea are not overpowered. They all blend nicely. You can distinguish all of the flavours. I love it! Almond “milk” does work too. I’m sure most “milk” alternatives would work with this b...

A beautiful smell of peppermint and chamomile. The vanilla enhances the sweet scent. This mixture of chamomile, rooibos and peppermint create a relaxing yet delicious experience!

I took the dégustation comparée (comparative tasting) of three green teas of a higher quality. This is one of the three I was served.
I got a zhong with dry leaves in it, a small cup, and a thermos of water.
I was recommended to finish with this tea, so I tasted this one last.

The leaves are very dark green and ...

I drank this tea in the Unami Maison de Thé in Lille. It was served prepared in a small teapot. This means it was made exactly as it should, though I didn't get to see any leaves.

My first impression was an intensely nutty and earthy aroma. The flavour is nutty too, but not as strong as expensive. It reminds me of ...

I drank this tea in the Unami Maison de Thé in Lille. It was served prepared in a small teapot. This means it was made exactly as it should, though I didn't get to see any leaves.

It tasted fresh, not sweet, and very grassy, with a rich flavour. The tea in the bottom of the pot is always stronger so I got three pro...

Jun. 29th, 2017

Teabag sample thanks to my friend Kate! This was interesting. I didn't like the initial aroma when I started steeping it, but as I steeped it longer I liked it progressively more.

Mint is the dominant quality in the aroma, but it is not domineering the way mint usually can be. The aroma is smooth and creamy. I don't...

Jun. 28th, 2017

Flip this tea's title around and call it "Ginger with Tulsi", and we have an accurate portrayal. I've consumed and reviewed one other Tulsi tea (also containing ginger), and still can't determine what Tulsi is supposed to taste like. Maybe it slathers a mellow veneer over the ginger, because this concoction is fairly...

Jun. 25th, 2017

I bought this tea before and remember it as lovely and flowery, but when I bought more of it later, it just... wasn't so great.
It looks nice with the tightly rolled balls of leaves. It's got a kind of metallic taste that I find a bit unpleasant. That could be the jasmine-like taste that the product description mentio...

I asked the owner of Het Gouden Randje to recommend me a sweet black tea. Once it was cleared up that I wasn't interested in flavoured teas, I was offered this one, and I was charmed with the smell.

It smells warm and sweet with a hint of honey. If you don't use too much leaf, it doesn't easily get bitter even if yo...

Jun. 24th, 2017

I bought this to keep at my parents' house to use as everyday green tea. It's a bit too subtle for an everyday tea, though. I also never seem to be able to get my tea quite right here.
It is very light, but doesn't feel thin, and it has a slightly sweet aftertaste. The colour is a lovely bright greenish yellow.

Jun. 24th, 2017

This bagged tea didn't earn quite as high of a rating as Ahmad's loose-leaf version of English Afternoon, but it was very good. Oodles of bags of this turned up in my pantry in an unmarked tin (my wife likes it, apparently), so I figured to give it a try.

I could taste the bergamot a bit -- not as much as with th...

Jun. 23rd, 2017

Perhaps this surprisingly high rating (for a very, very cheap tea) arises from the psychology of low expectations. I had seen a 100-count box of Clover Valley for sale at Dollar General for less than $2.50 (including tax)—slightly more than two cents per bag. Not wanting to buy a hundred bags, in case this tea suck...

This was my favorite oolong that I have sampled in a long time. After being let down by several oolongs from Harney & Sons, this one hit the spot.

The leaf, which is quite wiry, smells amazing and multifaceted: floral, fruity, toasty, spicy. There's a skunky note and a pleasant bready, baked-good quality. It seem...

Het Gouden Randje offers sweet high tea arrangements for groups of four to eight people, so I invited some friends along on my birthday. You get served three rounds, each with two kinds of tea and something sweet to eat (such as cookies, cake, parfaits...) You'll get to taste several different kinds of tea from very fa...
