Black Tea from Lipton Tea

Style: Black Tea – Region: ?????

33 / 100 Aroma: 3/10 Flavor: 2/5 Value: 3/5
Mar. 24th, 2010

This tea is low-grade swill. It's popular only because of advertising and price, not because of taste. It delivers an artificial, generic tea flavor. Even if someone wants an orange and black pekoe tea Red Rose, Tetley, and/or Bromley are arguably slightly better but definitely a better buy. Given a choice between ...

ZG52: Huo Shan Yellow Buds from Upton Tea Imports

Style: Huangya – Region: Anhui, China

63 / 100 Aroma: 8/10 Flavor: 2/5 Value: 2/5
Mar. 23rd, 2010

This is the first yellow tea I've sampled and in many respects it resembles a green tea.

The aroma is fairly rich; there are some of the grassy tones that characterize many green teas, but these are weak and in the background. A bit peppery like Upton describes, and also a bit perfumey. Subtle, but with a lot of d...

Simple, but as the title suggests, classic. It goes with almost anything and it's perfect for when you just want (black) tea without the extras

It was good, but not much different from other chamomile teas I've had.

Prince of Wales from Twinings

Style: Black Tea – Region: China

53 / 100 Aroma: 5/10 Flavor: 4/5 Value: 4/5
Mar. 22nd, 2010

Fairly light overall, especially compared to Twinings' other black teas. There's some complexity in the aroma, in my opinion, more than their other black teas with the exception of their Ceylon (my favorite). Smooth...less astringency or bitterness. I find you can steep this one a little longer without it becoming t...

This is a very calming tea. Much more effective than chamomile. Over the years, this has become my favorite tea. Ever.

Orange Mint Tulsi Tea from Organic India

80 / 100 Aroma: 8/10 Flavor: 4/5 Value: 4/5
Mar. 19th, 2010

Though not a big fan of herb teas, I love this tea. It has a lot of taste, the mix of mint, orange, and tulsi familiar enough (Constant Comment meets peppermint?) yet different from the everyday (the exotic impact of tulsi). I use one bag for two cups after lunch. It provides a robust and interesting finish to the meal...

Mar. 19th, 2010

I was pleasantly surprised with this teabag; it's just fannings/dust and doesn't look like much, but even the dry teabag is pleasantly aromatic. The name surprised me--I was expecting a kind of spiced tea but then I realized that "Chai Bora" is just the brand name. And "chai" just means tea after all!

Mar. 17th, 2010

Smooth and really well-balanced...the aromas of fruit, rooibos, and vanilla blend well; it's hard to tell where one ends and the other begins. A warming tea. Rich aroma but mellow flavor...no bitterness and a surprisingly clean aftertaste.

I was able to make two infusions (3 min. and 5 min.) with a small 8-oz cup,...

Sleepytime® Herbal Tea from Celestial Seasonings

67 / 100 Aroma: 6/10 Flavor: 3/5 Value: 4/5
Mar. 16th, 2010

One of the coziest parts of this tea is the box design with a bear curled up wearing his nightcap! Of course, the tea itself is nicely soothing as well. Perhaps my tastebuds are not as nuanced as the other reviewers- I mostly just taste the chamomile. For me, Sleepytime tea is nice for bedtime, but not something I woul...

67 / 100 Aroma: 8/10 Flavor: 3/5 Value: 4/5
Mar. 16th, 2010

The tightly curled brown leaves unfurl only partially when brewing...producing a tea that's completely clear and golden in color.

Complex aroma, strongly suggesting apricot, and also having some skunky tones, and a hint of olive. Smooth, mellow flavor, contrasting with the aroma, which suggests a sharper tea. No as...

Mar. 15th, 2010

Aroma very much like a Dong Ding Jade Oolong, very floral, but with a faint hint of a woody quality absent from those teas; this tea tastes very slightly more oxidized. Very smooth, but leaving a tingling sensation in the mouth. The aroma is very pleasing, but not terribly complex.

Using Upton's instructions I bre...

Style: Oolong Tea – Region: Taiwan / Formosa

67 / 100 Aroma: 8/10 Flavor: 3/5 Value: 3/5
Mar. 12th, 2010

When I bought this tea it was the second-highest-priced grade of the standard "Formosa oolongs" in Upton's catalogue. They've since switched things around and discontinued this tea.

I found this tea, moving up from the lowest grades (TT11-TT17), to be the first one that offered an appreciable difference, the first ...

Mar. 11th, 2010

Aroma is subtle and complex, but on the weak side: mostly of peach, with some weaker earthy tones. Flavor is tangy, with little bitterness. The aftertaste has a mild astringency. Thin-bodied.

Following Upton's recommendations I found worked alright--for a first cup. However, I tried to brew a second cup and ther...

I found this tea to be a bit lacking in flavor and value. I paid $10.50 for the tin of 36 bags, a single bag brews up a weak cup.

67 / 100 Aroma: 8/10 Flavor: 3/5 Value: 4/5
Mar. 10th, 2010

This tea's complexity surprised me! Unusually vegetal for a black tea, with a hint of savory qualities. Dark in color, and full-bodied, but delicate. Fairly bitter, especially in the aftertaste...moderately tannic and astringent.

The aroma of this tea would place it on par with some of the better single-estate Da...

Mar. 10th, 2010

Upton offers a number of different grades of Formosa oolong with only moderate differences in price...this one, by weight, costs less than 50% more than TT11, the "standard grade". Again, the leaf is broken, but in larger pieces than some of the lower grades. The dry leaf has a weak, earthy aroma.

There is just something about red rose that makes it the best black iced tea. It seems to not ever go flat tasting even after hanging in the fridge a few days. Everyone raves about my iced tea, and I just laugh. It's such a bargain.

I really like this tea, but I find that I have to use 2 tea bags per cup, otherwise the flavors don't really come out, even though the aroma is heavenly. This about doubles the price of the tea however, and for that price you can buy higher quality.
