Original (Black Tea) from Red Rose Tea

Style: Black Tea – Region: Blend

57 / 100 Aroma: 4/10 Flavor: 3/5 Value: 4/5
Apr. 22nd, 2010

This is the bag tea I use most frequently as an alternative to Assam, Kemun, Yunnan, or Darjeeling loose leaf teas. It holds up well to milk and a bit of sugar, doesn't have the slightly fishy taste of some major commercial brands.

Apr. 22nd, 2010

I am a fan of Rooibos. I love all teas, but there is something about Rooibos that is more appealing to me. Perhaps it is my sweet tooth, which appreciates the natural sweetness of Rooibos, or perhaps it is because Rooibos tends to blend with so many “sweet” flavours such as Caramel and Vanilla. Whatever it is, I am...

Apr. 22nd, 2010

Let me start by saying, I am not a coffee drinker. For me, the tea I choose to drink throughout the day will be dependent on my mood. This tea would be one that I would use to start my day, as I think it has the ability to give you that initial morning burst that many people claim to get from that first pot of java....

Green Tea from Hsin Tung Yang

Style: Green Tea – Region: Taiwan / Formosa

53 / 100 Aroma: 3/10 Flavor: 5/5 Value: 3/5
Apr. 22nd, 2010

The dry leaf is flaky in appearance, meaning it is probably a steamed tea like a sencha. But the aroma is totally unlike sencha.

Brewing as I would Sencha, this comes out a cloudy grayish green, more yellowish than most Japanese teas but greener than most pan-fired teas.

This tea is packed with flavor: a rich, c...

Green Tea from Wegmans

Style: Green Tea – Region: ?????

83 / 100 Aroma: 7/10 Flavor: 4/5 Value: 5/5
Apr. 21st, 2010

Wegmans green tea is one of the better cheap green teas. It has a basic green tea taste. I could drink it every morning. It's a good stand-by, especially for those of us on a budget. It is really cheap but has a good flavor.

English Afternoon from New English Teas

33 / 100 Aroma: 3/10 Flavor: 2/5 Value: 2/5
Apr. 21st, 2010

This teabag just contained dust and fannings. It was surprisingly weak, even when I brewed it for 4 minutes with boiling water, using less than one 8-oz cup with a single teabag.

Aroma weak, nondescript. Smooth...almost no bitterness, and very little astringency. But very little flavor of any sort. Highly disapp...

Loved the tea! Great smell and taste. I didn't need to use very much sweetner and it had a good after taste.

Apr. 20th, 2010

Very strongly aromatic...aroma is sweet, very floral but less perfumey than some Jasmines. There's almost a hint of wintergreen in the aroma. It's also fairly vegetal and a bit fishy. The aroma strikes me as a bit strange and has some unpleasant characteristics to it.

Very smooth flavor, sweet, with absolutely no...

Irish Breakfast Tea Bags from Taylors of Harrogate

Style: Irish Breakfast – Region: Blend

60 / 100 Aroma: 6/10 Flavor: 4/5 Value: 3/5
Apr. 19th, 2010

This is what I'd expect from this style: a very strong black tea, bitter, full-bodied, and very malty. It isn't my favorite type of tea but for what it is, and for the fact that it's in teabags, I think it's pretty good.

This tea really works best with one teabag per cup. It's strong enough that you can brew it mo...

Excellent, concentrated, grassy but not Spinach-ey, altogether stimulating and simultaneously soothing drink. Like drinking green amber.
Not a wuss tea; highly recommended.

I bought this thinking it would just be your average chai tasting tea, but I was wrong. This is delicious with an amazing blend of ingredients, which I consider near perfect for my tastes. The Rooibos and Tulsi, give it a great and interesting flavor. there are also some extra spice ingredients not found in most chai t...

60 / 100 Aroma: 6/10 Flavor: 3/5 Value: 4/5
Apr. 18th, 2010

I was not expecting to like this one, as I tend to avoid sweetening my tea, and I also don't really like the taste of Stevia. However, I was pleasantly surprised.

The lemon quality of this tea is muted--which is important because lemon myrtle in particular has a tendency to overpower other aromas. The aroma is ver...

Style: Earl Grey Tea – Region: Blend

63 / 100 Aroma: 6/10 Flavor: 4/5 Value: 3/5
Apr. 18th, 2010

This is among the better Earl Greys I've had from a tea bag. Strong, very bitter, but not too tannic (especially if you use a briefer brewing). The bold bergamot presence is balanced by an aromatic black tea. I would not call this tea "light and elegant"--I think this is a stronger tea (but I used one teabag for cup...

Apr. 17th, 2010

Aroma mostly of sweet corn. There's a hint of roast in there too...but it's not always pleasant...it almost resembles the stale coffee aroma you get if you run hot water through a coffee machine that hasn't been cleaned in a while. Slightly sweet and also with some pleasant bitterness, and very little astringency. T...

Style: Vanilla Chai – Region: Blend

37 / 100 Aroma: 2/10 Flavor: 4/5 Value: 2/5
Apr. 16th, 2010

Aroma is initially mostly of cinnamon...but upon drinking the tea, an overly artificial vanilla presence kicks in.

The best thing about this tea is that it has a bold black tea presence and, given that it's in a teabag and is decaffeinated, I was surprised at the strength and quality of the black tea. The flavor of...

47 / 100 Aroma: 4/10 Flavor: 3/5 Value: 3/5
Apr. 16th, 2010

Fruity, even for a Darjeeling, and mellow, except for some very strong objectionable qualities that emerge. There's a harshness in the aroma that I could do without...the aftertaste is also very tannic even though at first this tea tastes smooth. Astringent for a Darjeeling.

Disappointing. Definitely recognizable...

Apr. 15th, 2010

This tea has the characteristic qualities of lemon myrtle dominating the aroma...even though tea is the main ingredient, the tea presence is notably weaker. The cup is light in color and slightly opaque. There's a fair amount of astringency.

Interesting, and drinkable, but I would prefer a bolder presence of white...

Apr. 13th, 2010

I bought this in a 60g canister for $4 in Philadelphia's chinatown, and I wasn't expecting much because it seemed cheap for this style. This is barely recognizable as a Tung Ting / Dong Ding oolong: the leaves are broken, although in fairly large pieces, and although it's on the lighter side for an oolong, it seems to...

China Jasmine Green Tea from Foojoy

53 / 100 Aroma: 5/10 Flavor: 3/5 Value: 3/5
Apr. 12th, 2010

This was acceptable, but I was disappointed with the flavor and weakness of the aroma compared to Foojoy's other teabag teas that I've tried. The value was o.k., but the flavor could have been better. I agree with Alex's review, which recommends a longer brewing time.

Apr. 12th, 2010

As with many other Foojoy teabag teas, this is a good value for the cost. I recently discovered some of it that I had forgotten about in my office desk months ago, and I found it kept surprisingly well. The flavor is that of a good quality oolong.

Triple-Cup Extra Green from Foojoy

Apr. 12th, 2010

Aroma fresh and grassy, with a hint of toastiness and a faint suggestion of mint. Very delicate flavor: I'd call this one slightly brisk but not bitter. Remarkably full-bodied given the lightness of the flavor. The astringency builds somewhat upon drinking it but even by the end it's still enjoyable.

Apr. 12th, 2010

I'm not a huge fan of hibiscus, so it's hard for me to rate this. Compared to tea and most herbal teas, I don't like it much, but that doesn't mean this isn't of good quality.

Cup is an intense opaque red like the color of 100% cranberry juice. Aroma is mostly of cooked fruit, like the intermediate stage in making...

Flat, dry aroma, mostly of straw and leaf...little fruity lemon aroma and more of the muted straw-like quality of the lemongrass. Very bitter. Crisp but without being fresh or cooling as I had hoped from this tea. I also found the tea to be weak in aroma.

This was disappointing, both on its own and relative to wh...
