Orange Sencha from Two Leaves Tea

Style: Fruit Green Tea – Region: China

27 / 100 Aroma: 2/10 Flavor: 2/5 Value: 1/5
Feb. 11th, 2010

Aroma mostly of orange peel, overwhelming the green tea. The orange in the aroma is not particularly fruity, and has a dry quality to it. Although the tea presence is weak, I find that it blends well with the orange, but produces a tea that has an imbalanced aroma, coming across more like a cleaning solution than a t...

Organic KuKi Cha Green Kamakura from Upton Tea Imports

Style: Kukicha – Region: Japan

73 / 100 Aroma: 7/10 Flavor: 4/5 Value: 4/5
Feb. 10th, 2010

The aroma of the dry tea is straw-like, but the brewed tea is a lot more like sencha, including a hint of the characteristic seaweed-like quality. In many ways it's typical for a Japanese green tea. There are a few woody tones in the aroma but they have a very different character from the woody qualities present in s...

I love this tea! Creamy mouthfeel; round vanilla flavor on a nicely assertive base of black. Great aroma.

Darjeeling (Loose) from Hampstead Tea

Style: Darjeeling Black Tea – Region: Darjeeling, India

88 / 100 Aroma: 8/10 Flavor: 5/5 Value: 5/5
Feb. 6th, 2010

This seemingly straightforward Darjeeling has quickly become one of my favorite everyday teas. Although "typical" in many respects, it is surprisingly complex...the aroma has many different aspects to it: a fruitiness, a hint of a rice-like quality, some floral tones, a bit of spice, a suggestion of fall leaves, and s...

Mango Ceylon from Republic of Tea

47 / 100 Aroma: 4/10 Flavor: 3/5 Value: 3/5
Feb. 6th, 2010

I had this from a teabag in Panera bread. It could be that it wasn't terribly fresh (I wouldn't put that past Panera) but I was disappointed by the weak black tea presence in this tea. Some people might like that though as this tea is very smooth and has very little bitterness or astringency. I took it as having no ...

Earl Grey Decaf from Mighty Leaf Tea

Style: Earl Grey Tea – Region: Blend

40 / 100 Aroma: 4/10 Flavor: 3/5 Value: 1/5
Feb. 4th, 2010

The bergamot dominates the tea aroma in this blend, but what black tea there is in the aroma has a decent quality. I find that Earl Grey tends to make a better decaffeinated tea than most other black teas, and this tea fits that pattern well.

I still find this tea, like most of mighty leaf's offerings, to be insane...

70 / 100 Aroma: 6/10 Flavor: 5/5 Value: 5/5
Feb. 3rd, 2010

This is the first broken-leaf Ceylon from Upton that has been drinkable to me, and I'm surprised to find it completely lacking in the harshness that the other ones I've tried have had.

The aroma is totally unlike any black tea I have tried...it reminds me of rice and rice pastries. I like Upton's description "brigh...

Style: Green Tea – Region: Yunnan, China

73 / 100 Aroma: 8/10 Flavor: 5/5 Value: 3/5
Feb. 2nd, 2010

This tea has a pungent aroma unlike any other green tea I've sampled before. It reminds me of a hoppy beer like an India Pale Ale, and the bitterness in the tea is similar to that of a strong IPA. The aroma is more like a typical black tea than a green tea to me--I would probably guess incorrectly that it was black t...

Feb. 1st, 2010

I have started to see enough of a pattern that I can at least suspect that I tend to like green teas from Sri Lanka.

The dry leaves of this tea are whole and very full, slightly curled, and dark green, and a few of the leaves have a reddish tinge. The dry leaves have a tobacco-like smell.

The cup is richly aroma...

Feb. 1st, 2010

Ahmad is one of my favourite tea brands. It has never let me down. Their Darjeeling is no exception; difficult as it is to brew a perfect Darjeeling, they have found the right proportion for a cup.

67 / 100 Aroma: 5/10 Flavor: 5/5 Value: 4/5
Jan. 29th, 2010

Strong but without an edge; malty, full-bodied, but not overly tannic. The dry leaf has a pleasantly strong vegetal aroma, unusual for a black tea, but I was disappointed to find little of this characteristic come through in the brewed cup.

Not the most interesting tea, perhaps, but a very enjoyable tea to drink, m...

Style: Pu-erh Tea – Region: Yunnan, China

77 / 100 Aroma: 7/10 Flavor: 4/5 Value: 4/5
Jan. 29th, 2010

This is a rather rich loose-leaf shu (ripened) pu-erh. It differs from most of the loose-leaf pu-erh on the market in that it is much older than most, being a 1997 processing date, yet it's not priced in the stratosphere like so much aged pu-erh. The rough shu taste has smoothed over time and there are nice hints of ...

43 / 100 Aroma: 5/10 Flavor: 3/5 Value: 2/5
Jan. 29th, 2010

A smooth, gentle chai with a tangy aftertaste. Aroma sweet, spicey, and malty. Clove and cinnamon are particularly noticeable in the aroma; spice dominates and the tea is less noticeable. I'm not sure where the tea is from but the tea seems more like an Assam than like any other Indian teas. There's a bit of a meta...

Jan. 29th, 2010

Naturally very sweet. The roast is mellow and does not seem to impart any bitterness or burnt qualities. A creamy, vanilla-like quality is dominant in the aroma. A hint of smokiness is present, especially in the aftertaste. The flavor and aroma of this drink are very pleasant and complex.

I have tried brewing th...

Jan. 28th, 2010

A pleasantly mellow tea, unlike anything else I've tried before. Definitely noticeable as a Vietnamese tea; it's interesting how both their black and green teas share certain characteristics in common.

Very smooth, little bitterness, even when steeped for a long time. I find a hint of lemon in the aroma, which is ...

Jan. 27th, 2010

I found this tea disappointing, especially for its price, which makes it interesting for me to see that it has been dropped from Upton's carryings.

The aroma of this tea reminds me of a green tea. The cup has a clean and crisp quality, like a good Japanese sencha, but without much bitterness or sharpness. There ar...

This tea smells so much stronger in the tin then the actual taste when you brew it. I love it with milk and a little sugar. It tastes like strawberries and cream. A good value and a great flavored black tea.

This one surprised me; Upton threw it in as a free sample. I probably would have not bought it on my own because of the price, but now that I've tried it I think it offers pretty good value, although it is still expensive.

When brewed, this tea is opaque, less so than matcha but more so than most other sencha that ...

Jan. 21st, 2010

Mild, woody aroma, with a hint of wintergreen. The smell reminds me of the inside of some people's homes...it's a homey, comfortable, familiar sort of smell, but slightly medicinal. This tea is slightly sweet, and very mellow.

After drinking two cups (the sample only really makes three) I'm still not sure how I fe...

Jan. 13th, 2010

Very different from the purple-leaf variety, which I like better.

This has a very strong metallic character in the taste, and the aroma suggests a metallic character too. The aroma is more similar to the purple variety, perhaps less of a cinnamon character and more clove.

I've also tried the green-leafed Tulsi f...
