Cranberry Apple Herbal Tea from Bigelow Tea

Style: Herbal Tea – Region: Blend

63 / 100 Aroma: 5/10 Flavor: 4/5 Value: 4/5
Jun. 27th, 2019

Most Bigelow teas I've tried, I've never bought, thanks to hotels, restaurants and conferences. This one was no exception. I don't care for cranberry as a flavor, so you wouldn't catch me plunking down even a couple bucks at the Wal-Mart clearance bin for any herbal tea named after cranberries. Fortunately there is ...

Black Tea from Lipton Tea

Style: Black Tea – Region: ?????

100 / 100 Aroma: 10/10 Flavor: 5/5 Value: 5/5
Jun. 22nd, 2019

I have been drinking this tea for longer than I can remember. It’s delicious. For me it IS tea. Tea? Liptons, of course. Cold or hot, it does not disappoint.
BUT...what the heck is up with the tag? When I was a child the tag was there and useful for dunking. Now it’s wrapped around the bag and stapled. I have to...

China Black Special from TeaSource

Style: Black Tea – Region: Guangxi, China

93 / 100 Aroma: 7/10 Flavor: 5/5 Value: 5/5
Jun. 21st, 2019

TeaSource describes this tea as unusual, and I agree, and not just how it looks, and its origin (only my second tea I've ever tried from Guangxi) but also its flavor and aroma! I really loved this one and I found it easy to drink and enjoy.

The leaf is only lightly aromatic but the smell is very pleasant.

Yunnan FOP from TeaSource

81 / 100 Aroma: 8/10 Flavor: 4/5 Value: 5/5
Jun. 19th, 2019

One of the most interesting teas I've tried in a while!

The dry leaf, which is quite aesthetic looking, smells very unusual and different. The aroma is strong, quite smoky and also herbaceous, with hints of malt and cocoa. It also reminds me a little bit of the smell of an ashtray though, and also of the "new car" s...

Ceylon, Lumbini Estate, FBOP from TeaSource

91 / 100 Aroma: 9/10 Flavor: 5/5 Value: 5/5
Jun. 18th, 2019

This was an exceptional tea and without a doubt one of the best Ceylons I've sampled ever. I like Ceylons, but outside of the ones from teakruthi, it's rare I find ones that stand out. This is one of them!

The leaf looks very straightforward, made of large broken pieces of wiry leaf, uniform in texture and dark gray...

Matcha Green Tea Powder from Trader Joe's

Style: Matcha – Region: Japan

78 / 100 Aroma: 8/10 Flavor: 4/5 Value: 3/5
Jun. 18th, 2019

This is pretty good matcha. Though I don’t normally like extra packing, the single serving sizes kept me from using excessive tea powder. The tea didn’t taste weak.

I am not particularly skilled at making matcha. I liked this one best with a little preheated milk and a little honey.

On the plus side, my two y...

Jun. 18th, 2019

I love teas from Kenya, and I've been loving the teas I ordered from TeaSource, so it makes sense I would love this one! I think it is my favorite tea of the whole batch.

The dry leaf smells amazing: there is a sweet, bready quality, and a hint of the juniper smell that is mention in the commercial description.

Jun. 17th, 2019

I ordered this exquisite tea from TeaSource with my first order, and it was both interesting and impressive.

The dry leaf is beautiful, curly and somewhat wiry. It is intensely aromatic and the aroma is beautiful: strongly malty, more like rye than other grains, with a nutty quality a little like peanut butter, but ...

Jun. 17th, 2019

I was excited and curious to order from TeaSource, and this was one of the first teas I tried. I have been impressed with all of the teas I've tried, including this one.

The leaf is strongly aromatic and pleasant, mostly a malty smell, and it also gives off the sense that this tea packs a punch.

Jun. 13th, 2019

I love chai, so I tried Chai Love. It was one of the least chai-like of chais I've had, but yet, still strangely satisfying and tasty. It also had perhaps the greatest aromatic discrepancy I've encountered between dry-leaf, in-cup and wet-leaf scents.

The dry leaf is the most truly chai-like sensation (smell or t...

71 / 100 Aroma: 7/10 Flavor: 4/5 Value: 4/5
Jun. 12th, 2019

I don't love lemon. Regardless, if you do, this seems to be as reasonable of a presentation of the natural flavor as you'll find in a hot beverage, short of cooking lemonade. Perusing the ingredients, this should be expected with three different plant sources of the lemon ester: lemongrass, lemon verbena and lemon (...

Jun. 12th, 2019

This tea is pleasant, especially with a little milk added. (Note: I recommend warming the milk in the microwave briefly and pouring the hot water into it when making tea.) There’s a distinct but not entirely unpleasant sharpness to this tea that is improved with the milk, though it can still be enjoyed plain. The spi...

Organic Sencha Tea from Trader Joe's

70 / 100 Aroma: 6/10 Flavor: 3/5 Value: 4/5
Jun. 11th, 2019

This tea is not bad but it isn’t overwhelming. I generally prefer loose leaf anyway, as a cup of bagged tea often isn’t as strong as I like. It’s fairly easy to avoid bitterness in this tea, but it’s still good not to brew the tea too hot or too long — as is generally true for green teas. Not bad as a potenti...

Jun. 6th, 2019

I got this from a restaurant hot-tea selection box and took home an extra bag to taste-test on good well water. The bergamot was somewhat feeble throughout the consumption experience. Still, it's among the better Twinings teas I've had (yes, I realize that's not saying much).

Sweetened, as I always do, this prod...

Jun. 5th, 2019

The weird thing about TEViVE teas is that the teabags contain half of the tea or herb or whatever of other brands. The flavored black teas each contain one gram of tea instead of two. The peppermint teabags contain .6 gram while my box of Stash teabags have a full gram. Whenever I make this, I use twice as many teabags...

I purchased Harney and Son's Organic Jasmine along with their Dragon Jasmine Pearls and their Jasmine (non-organic). I brewed all of them according to Harney and Son's directions (1 tsp tea to 1c water at 175F for 3 min).

Organic Jasmine has the least jasmine aroma and flavor of the three. That's not to say it isn't...

Jun. 5th, 2019

I ordered this tea loose and brewed it exactly to Harney & Sons directions (1 tsp per cup at 175F for 3 minutes). The aroma is sublime. The color is very light golden straw. The flavor is soft, fragrant, not bitter at all. Compared to Harney and Son's "Jasmine" and "Organic Jasmine" the Dragon Pearl Jasmine is more sub...

Jun. 4th, 2019

Good quality, straightforward hibiscus flower tea. Bulk hibiscus flowers are cheap, but quality can be hit or miss. Though many (or even most) blended herbal teas contain hibiscus, few brands offer unblended hibiscus teabags and the ones that do tend to be overpriced.

Hibiscus is tart and fruity, almost like unsweet...

Jun. 3rd, 2019

The bold print on the box says "matcha + green tea". The smaller print—green tea blend with matcha—is more correct. Each of the triangular clear sachets (not "tea bags" as we know them in paper form) contains a reasonable amount of finely chopped green tea leaves and just a pinch of matcha powder. Don't forget t...

Since finding their regular bagged tea a couple years ago, I was hoping to run across the decaf version for a taste test too, and also, for a pre-bedtime black-tea chug after another day spent roaming the highways and byways of this land. For some reason, outside of the occasional Bigelow bag, it's hard to find decaf ...

I bought a cup of this from a Dunkin Donuts and liked it, so I bought a box to brew at home. The sachets are large and each contains 3g of finely-chopped tea. The box doesn't say which teas are in the blend (other than "from around the World"), but the tea looks orthodox rather than CTC.

The brewing tea has a strong...

My family has been drinking Throat Coat for at least 15+ years. It's the first thing we reach for when we have colds. It is very soothing on the throat, helps open breathing passages, and temporarily reduces coughing. Highly recommend a 5 min covered steep time, a squeeze of lemon, and honey to taste.

One of the all-time best iced teas I've ever had. Hot summer day Paris 2018... marching around the Louvre we stumbled upon Mariage Freres tea shop in the underground gallery.
