Organic Pure Green Tea from Bigelow Tea

Style: Green Tea – Region: ?????

37 / 100 Aroma: 2/10 Flavor: 4/5 Value: 2/5
Apr. 29th, 2010

Brewed for 4 minutes with water that had cooled well below boiling, it brews an opaque golden color.

Aroma is mostly flat. There's a hint of a very pleasant floral quality, but it's overshadowed by a cardboard-like quality that basically ruins it for me. Ignoring the aroma, the flavor is good. Slightly tangy, wit...

India Breakfast Tulsi Tea from Organic India

Style: Flavored Black Tea – Region: India

70 / 100 Aroma: 6/10 Flavor: 4/5 Value: 4/5
Apr. 29th, 2010

This tea is smooth and balanced and the way it makes you feel is smooth and balanced as well. It's a bit like a masal chai/spiced tea since the tulsi imparts clove and other spicy aromas. The tulsi is strong enough that I can't really say all that much about the quality of the tea, but whatever tea is used blends wel...

40 / 100 Aroma: 4/10 Flavor: 2/5 Value: 3/5
Apr. 28th, 2010

preface: i'm a huge fan of the real 'organic throat coat' tea. i love the flavor and aroma.

i had the misfortune of trying the 'just for kids' version. basically, while it has some of the same ingredients, the blend is far from identical. i guess it's an alright licorice-tasting tea, but the magic of the original...

i'll start by saying that i drink this 'tea' simply because i love the flavor. i'm not reviewing this to vouch for its efficacy in the treatment of any condition.

i'll continue by saying that everyone, with the exception of one or two people, that i've given a cup of this to did not care for it flavor-wise.

Orange Ginger Mint from Republic of Tea

Style: Herbal Tea – Region: ?????

77 / 100 Aroma: 8/10 Flavor: 4/5 Value: 5/5
Apr. 28th, 2010

This is by far my favorite tea from Republic of Tea yet. Strong and complex aroma, mostly herbaceous with a bit of spice: thyme is dominant, but with a lot of other things going on...the ginger and anise are also particularly noticeable. Very full-bodied--among the richest herbal teas I've tried. Close to my ideal a...

China Oolong from Twinings

Style: Oolong Tea – Region: China

50 / 100 Aroma: 4/10 Flavor: 4/5 Value: 3/5
Apr. 28th, 2010

The first sip of this oolong was delightful, but upon drinking a whole cup of it I wasn't as much of a fan. Significantly lighter than a black tea, the aroma is very floral, bordering on perfumey. Upon drinking more than a few sips, however, a lot of unpleasant qualities develop...there's a sourness, and some off qua...

43 / 100 Aroma: 4/10 Flavor: 3/5 Value: 2/5
Apr. 28th, 2010

The package recommends to brew for 4-6 minutes...I brewed for four. The black tea in this teabag was exceptionally weak--the cup was a clear reddish color, and I brewed with only about 6oz. of water. However, the lack of a bold black tea presence was made up for by a strong aroma of spice.

There are different spic...

It wasn't too strong and had a pleasant taste, almost sweet, but not too much.

63 / 100 Aroma: 6/10 Flavor: 4/5 Value: 4/5
Apr. 26th, 2010

Upton suggests that this tea has "raisin like nuances" and I'd go even father and be more direct: it smells and tastes a like raisins, and leaves an aftertaste of raisins! Smooth but without being weak. A fair amount of the rice-like quality that I find in many Ceylon teas, and almost a hint of wintergreen. Medium-b...

Apr. 25th, 2010

In my opinion this is the best among Bigelow's flavored teas, although my favorite from Bigelow is one of their herbals--sweet dreams.

It's funny, I tend not to like orange spice teas, but I like this one. It's balanced: none of the aromas overpower the others. There's a nice amount of strength and bitterness, but...

Pure Ceylon Tea from New English Teas

Style: Ceylon Black Tea – Region: Sri Lanka / Ceylon

60 / 100 Aroma: 5/10 Flavor: 5/5 Value: 4/5
Apr. 24th, 2010

After being highly disappointed by the English Afternoon Tea of the same brand, this was a pleasant surprise. Again, very fine dust/fannings in the teabag, so I wasn't expecting much.

When I brewed the tea though I tasted an astonishingly complex, gentle Ceylon with a distinct high-grown character reminiscent of te...

77 / 100 Aroma: 8/10 Flavor: 4/5 Value: 4/5
Apr. 23rd, 2010

Aroma powerful and enticing like a dark roast coffee. This tea foams when brewed, and the brewed cup is clearer and lighter in color than you'd expect from the aroma and dark color of the twigs. Unlike some kukicha, this tea seems to be made exclusively out of twigs with not even a bit of leaf.

Surprisingly, relat...

This was a gift for my birthday recently, it is a tea I brew for guests quite often. It is fruity, the slight sourness is offset by slight sweetness. I feel this is a light tea that I enjoy during the day. It is a good balance between being light and strong tea.

So, I really love this tea. I will say, the warning label is serious, especially if you have never had the sleepytime extra, you will want to make sure you are ready for bed when you drink it. It is very relaxing and even though it is potent, it is so in a very mild manner (if that makes sense). It is a very light tea,...

I was expecting something really wonderful when I bought this, but the flavor is a little flat and a little to bitter. I wouldn't turn it down if it was offered to me, but I wouldn't buy it again.

I feel like this one is a "classic" but that may be because this was one of the first teas I actually enjoyed. It has a very strong aroma, but in a pleasant way. It is a little bit spicy, though I feel the aroma makes it seem like it will taste spicier than it actually is. I enjoy this tea in the fall and winter months...

I imagine myself sitting outside on a deck in the summer time lazily watching the sun set when I have a cup of this tea, regardless of what the scenery might actually be. It is a very smooth tasting tea with a light sweetness to it. I feel like it is a very well done blend of flavors.

Slightly sour but still fruity. A very light tea that was nice during the day while reading a book or sitting around chatting. It was nice to drink when I was stressing out a little, but that could simply be because I was drinking tea. It is not one of my favorite teas, but not something I would avoid.

Apr. 22nd, 2010

This is a good 'railroad' tea (add milk and sugar) if you don't want to go to the trouble of making your own or don't keep a variety of whole spices. Rather pricey though. Sugar or honey brings out the spice flavor.
