China Oolong from Twinings

Oct. 16th, 2009

I love oolong tea and wanted to find an economical choice, but I won't be buying this again. It had none of the delicacy or mystery I associate with oolong, though it did have a nice tannic kick.

I loathe this tea. To me, it tastes like artificial sweetener with an overlay of nut.

A 'solid' Ceylon, I find it better than it's fannings grade counter part used in tea bags.

Green Tea - Lemongrass - Decaf from Good Earth Teas

Style: Flavored Green Tea – Region: Blend

26 / 100 Aroma: 2/10 Flavor: 2/5 Value: 1/5
Oct. 15th, 2009

Upon opening the package there is an immediate burst of a very strong artificial-seeming fruity aroma. The tea brews a dark orange color; there's little aroma of either tea or lemongrass. There's a kind of fresh, earthy aroma in this tea but it tastes a bit more like ginseng or even ginger than it does like green tea...

73 / 100 Aroma: 7/10 Flavor: 4/5 Value: 4/5
Oct. 14th, 2009

A rich roasted aroma, fairly mellow flavor, with only a little bitterness. Exactly what I would expect of this style. Some hints of the freshness of green tea remain. Moderate level of roast. A few mildly objectionable tones in the aroma...hard to describe...like a slight stale quality (even though overall the tea ...

Style: Shou Mei – Region: China

77 / 100 Aroma: 8/10 Flavor: 5/5 Value: 3/5
Oct. 14th, 2009

Deep reddish brown color, and very clear. More delicate than typical for a Shou Mei, but still fairly rich and full. Very smooth flavor; no bitterness, and a clean, cool aftertaste.

Unlike Upton's other Shou Mei's for which I found the brewing instructions to be right on, this one I like to brew differently. I br...

60 / 100 Aroma: 6/10 Flavor: 2/5 Value: 4/5
Oct. 14th, 2009

Brownish leaves with some silvery and green mixed in. Light aroma of fall leaves and honey with some vegetal tones. Some astringency and a noticeably unpleasant sourness, although no bitterness.

Of Upton's 3 Shou Mei teas of similar price (see ZW62, ZW23), this is the one I like least. This one is much more simil...

Oct. 14th, 2009

Of Upton three Shou Mei's of similar price, this is my favorite. Leaves greener as Shou Mei goes. Aroma is fresh, clean and vegetal, perhaps even a bit grassy. Very rich aroma; this is the most aromatic of any Shou Mei that I've sampled. Less sweet than most white teas. My only complaint is a fair amount of astrin...

African Sunset from Two Leaves Tea

Style: Flavored Rooibos – Region: South Africa

70 / 100 Aroma: 7/10 Flavor: 4/5 Value: 3/5
Oct. 14th, 2009

The lemongrass is very present, at times dominating the rooibos in the aroma. Also, the lemongrass adds a sharpness and crispness that changes the character of this tea--it is not at all smooth the way rooibos on its own is. I like it though; it's a bit of a surprise but I think it's a welcome one. I think they've u...

Oct. 13th, 2009

This is one of the naturally sweetest teas I have ever tried, with an aroma of cinnamon, honey, caramel, and autumn leaves. Rich, warm, and very gentle. Absolutely no bitterness whatsoever...just a hint of astringency in the aftertaste.

This is one of 3 of Upton's Shou Mei teas of very similar price and I want to ...

93 / 100 Aroma: 9/10 Flavor: 5/5 Value: 5/5
Oct. 13th, 2009

Green rooibos is one of my all-time favorite herbal teas. Upton's offering is very similar to other sources of this herb, but I find theirs has a slightly greener character, and is among the most reasonably priced, and for both of these reasons, it is my green rooibos of choice. I drink this particular offering from ...

Oct. 13th, 2009

This tea definitely resembles a Darjeeling but it packs a bit more of a punch--more bitterness and astringency. People who like the aroma profile and lighter color of Darjeelings but find them a bit too mellow may really like this tea. The finely broken leaves have a good mix of greener and olive-colored leaves. Rem...

Style: Herbal Tea – Region: Blend

33 / 100 Aroma: 3/10 Flavor: 1/5 Value: 2/5
Oct. 13th, 2009

Very fruity, dominated by the blackcurrant. Lacking complexity in the aroma. No bitterness...but very sour, too sour for me. I didn't really notice the ginseng or vanilla. I much prefer Twining's blackcurrant-flavored black tea.

Terrible. It doesn't really taste like anything other than cinnamon water. Smells nice, but is very deceiving.

My reaction to this tea was pretty much: eh. I resent paying luxury rates for a tea that tastes like a budget hotel.

This brew is simply wonderful with a deep spearmint aroma coming through. The flavors are truly enjoyable with a touch of honey added. Very nice indeed.

This is just a simple green tea, but at least it's 100% tea. There really isn't too much in the way of aroma, some earthy tea notes coming through in the nose. Adding a touch of honey takes some of the bitter qualities of the tea away. For green tea, this is a staple.

The mandarin oranges come through nicely in the nose. Their flavor isn't too strong, which is a good thing! The flavor is rather mild, but the oranges are noticeable alongside the green tea.

Very nice spearmint aromas mixed with some of the orange blossoms. The flavor is delicately mild, yet very satisfying. The spearmint comes through the strongest, but some of the other herbs come through as well.

Oct. 10th, 2009

Aroma sweet-suggesting, slightly fruity but not overly so. The tea and berries seem to blend very well, and in spite of the addition of "natural tropical flavors" this doesn't have a particularly artificial taste. Smooth but tangy. A lot of dust gets through the teabag and sinks to the bottom of the cup, but this do...
