Aug. 31st, 2021

One-litre pot at home, made from finely chopped leaves of peppermint. Pours nearly clear darkish brown (against white china). Clear aroma of, well, peppermint, but without any aggressive notes, despite the fact that I brewed the tea for 10 minutes. Clean flavour of peppermint - again, not aggressive but definitely undi...

Diamond Jubilee Tea Bags from Murchie's Tea & Coffee Ltd

Style: Black Tea – Region: Blend

87 / 100 Aroma: 7/10 Flavor: 5/5 Value: 5/5
Aug. 27th, 2021

Another Murchie's mix marches out of the box and firmly into fond appreciation, this one in a traditional but growing group that honors assorted British royalty. The dry-bag aroma is mild but pleasant, offering an honest hint at the smooth and bold flavor to come. This blend tastes, has in-cup aroma and smells in the...

50 / 100 Aroma: 5/10 Flavor: 2/5 Value: 2/5
Aug. 22nd, 2021

I’m not too crazy about this tea… I wouldn’t drink it again unless someone served it to me. It has a weak aroma and the flavor is too bitter for me, it also has a somewhat “damp basement” flavor. It’s not the worst tea ever and it definitely is still edible but I wouldn’t go out of my way to drink this ag...

Mango Black Tea from Trader Joe's

Style: Fruit Black Tea – Region: Blend

69 / 100 Aroma: 6/10 Flavor: 4/5 Value: 4/5
Aug. 10th, 2021

Tropical fruit flavors are always a favorite, so (long overdue) I got some of this tea to try. My favorite mango-flavored black tea still is Hawaiian Islands Tea Company's "Mango Maui", but this comes in at a close second, and for now, is more readily available*.

Dry-bag aroma was more tea than mango. It's hard t...

The aroma has a slight sweet earthiness. The liquor is a medium amber. The flavor is nice, clean with no after taste. I will purchase this tea again.

African Solstice from Tea Forte

94 / 100 Aroma: 9/10 Flavor: 5/5 Value: 4/5
Aug. 9th, 2021

I actually tried the loose version of this tea rather than the sachet, but the product page is the same as linked here.

I enjoyed this! I got two good steeps out of it. It has a nice, smooth feeling. It’s definitely a nice flavored rooibos.

Bonus: My son also loved the sunflower on the packaging.

Black Cherry from Tea Forte

Aug. 7th, 2021

I really like this tea. The cherry flavor and black tea flavor blend together well (although the ingredients list oddly doesn’t include cherry). I brewed it at 205° and it steeped well without creating bitterness. I used the packet of “single steep” tea twice. The second steep wasn’t quite as strong and partic...

Aug. 4th, 2021

Somehow, through all the teas I've chugged the last few years, Scottish Breakfast hasn't gone down the gullet yet. Why? Forgive my neglect. I've been missing out. I won't speak for other shops' renditions yet, but Murchie's has a championship-caliber blend going here.

Maybe some of it was reading that many Scott...

Mauritius from Chado Tea

Style: Flavored Black Tea – Region: ?????

75 / 100 Aroma: 10/10 Flavor: 3/5 Value: 3/5
Aug. 3rd, 2021

First I need to mention I do not venture into 'flavored' tea territory very often. The aroma (dried and brewed) is unmistakably vanilla. Pleasant and brings to mind a bowl of ice cream. The liquor is a deep dark brown (steeped five minutes). The flavor has a solid vanilla taste. I might enjoy this tea now and then, but...

Sessa Estate Winey Assam from Chado Tea

Style: Assam – Region: Assam, India

85 / 100 Aroma: 8/10 Flavor: 5/5 Value: 5/5
Jul. 28th, 2021

The aroma is nice, with a subtle sweetness, earning the 'winey' designation. The liquor brewed (five minutes) to a dark brown. Solid Assam taste with a slight tangy after taste that stays on the tongue. This tea might pair well with milk or sugar.

Pleasant mild aroma. The liquor medium honey color. Flavor is good, this tea would probably be overwhelmed with the addition of sugar or milk. Easy to sip and enjoy.

Steep Organic Pure Green Decaffeinated Tea from Bigelow Tea

42 / 100 Aroma: 5/10 Flavor: 2/5 Value: 3/5
Jul. 19th, 2021

After my experiences with other teas in the Steep line, I'm a little disappointed in this tea. It's not terrible, though.

The dry tea smells like dusty hay, vegetal, but otherwise nondescript.

The brewing tea smells grassy, but the aroma is a bit weak. There's also a sort of "shrimp" note that I've detected in ot...

Jul. 18th, 2021

With similar coloration of the outer box, as well as ingredients, I suspect this is the Trader Joe's imitation of Yogi's "DeTox" product. However, I can't compare the two directly, since I haven't (yet) tried the Yogi version. Still, this is the best wellness/medicinal tea I've had to date, one of the best herbal te...

Organice Fukamushi Cha from Upton Tea Imports

Style: Green Tea – Region: Japan

75 / 100 Aroma: 9/10 Flavor: 3/5 Value: 3/5
Jul. 9th, 2021

This is a new one for me - a fukamushi tea. It looks like a bancha, but according to Upton's website fukamushi is its own category. A websearch shows me that it is a moderately to fully steamed green tea, usually a sencha. This has a wonderful earthy, fresh woodlands aroma. The taste is light and leafy, with a fair...

60 / 100 Aroma: 6/10 Flavor: 4/5 Value: 3/5
Jul. 5th, 2021

This is a light sencha with a little fruit flavor to it. Yuzu is similar to lime, but this did not have a strong citrus taste. I bet it would be good iced. A pleasant tea.

Typhoo hard-sells to appreciators of strong tea with what appears to be their newest offering, straightforwardly titled Extra Strong, with this verbiage on the side of the package: "The most hardcore quality teas from estates in India and Africa, wrestled from the plant and blended together. Deep. Bold. Strong. Th...

Jun. 19th, 2021

This is a great classic black tea! It’s not super unique, it is pretty standard and it’s great for what it is! It is not bitter or astringent at all, it is smooth and thick bodied. I would definitely drink this again!
