BH65: Lemon Grass, Coarse Cut from Upton Tea Imports

Style: Lemongrass – Region: Thailand

Dec. 12th, 2009

Tastes...like lemongrass. There's a fair amount of astringency, which I could do without, but the aroma is wonderful and very strong. I've never had straight lemongrass tea before, although I've enjoyed it when it has been an ingredient in other teas, so it's hard to know what to compare this to...but I like it!

TC53: Uva Highlands Estate BOP from Upton Tea Imports

53 / 100 Aroma: 7/10 Flavor: 1/5 Value: 3/5
Dec. 12th, 2009

Aroma strongly of wintergreen...almost unbelievable that this is just tea...it tastes almost as if wintergreen oil has been added! Outside of the surprising wintergreen aroma, this tea is dark, robust, and very full. Fairly bitter, astringent, and tannic. The rest of the aroma is typical of a Ceylon.

Like the Cey...

Cholesterid (Yunnan Tuocha) from Triple Leaf Tea

Style: Wellness Tea / Medicinal Tea – Region: Yunnan, China

70 / 100 Aroma: 6/10 Flavor: 4/5 Value: 4/5
Dec. 11th, 2009

The benefits of this tea are well-established. This tea is not the most exotic in terms of its aroma, and its slightly musty flavor is an acquired taste. The favor is inferior to an oolong tea in my opinion, but the healthful effects offset this disadvantage. A convenient tea to brew where loose tea is not available...

Darjeeling Black Tea from Bigelow Tea

Style: Darjeeling Black Tea – Region: Darjeeling, India

50 / 100 Aroma: 4/10 Flavor: 3/5 Value: 3/5
Dec. 11th, 2009

Definitely recognizable as Darjeeling...fairly smooth, with only some astringency lingering towards the bottom of the cup. Weak aroma, not terribly complex, but pleasant. Much lighter than most of Bigelow's other black teas. This was enjoyable, although noticeably less so than other more pricey Darjeelings I've had ...

Peppermint Herbal Tea from Lipton Tea

Style: Peppermint Tea – Region: ?????

57 / 100 Aroma: 5/10 Flavor: 4/5 Value: 3/5
Dec. 10th, 2009

Very pepperminty without being overwhelmingly so. Rich, full-bodied, but with less of the leafy aroma that some dried peppermint teas have. Smooth flavor, no sourness. I think this is among the better of Lipton's herbal offerings. The only thing lacking is the complexity of the aroma...I like mint teas that have a ...

Dec. 9th, 2009

I have tried a number of the Harney and Sons teas and this one is by far my favorite. The smell that emanates from your cup will capture your thoughts, having you thinking about sitting in front of a fireplace on a snowy night.

The tea has a delicious flavor and is so warming from the inside out.

Tea smells fabulous and the taste is strong. It has a lot of bergamot in the taste, but that makes sense. Could probably use some lemon though.

Every time I go to Starbucks, this is the tea I order. It has a lovely spearmint taste and smell but with a good hint of gunpowder black tea to it. It is exactly what the name suggests - refreshing!

Dec. 8th, 2009

This is chai tea the way it should always be made. You can see and smell all the spices in the tea and it all mixes together to make excellent tea. A pound of this tea fills around 1 1/2 quarts of volumne making this an excellent value.

The People's Green Tea from Republic of Tea

Style: Green Tea – Region: ?????

43 / 100 Aroma: 4/10 Flavor: 3/5 Value: 2/5
Dec. 8th, 2009

This tea had a muted quality to it, although it had a bolder tea presence than Republic's flavored green and white teas. Fairly smooth flavor, a few unpleasant qualities to the aroma, but not very bitter. Weak, overall, not very fresh tasting.

Dec. 8th, 2009

While this pales in comparison to loose dragon well teas that I've tried, it's definitely true to the style. The low price and simple packaging of the teabags are deceptive...this tea retains a lot of complexity. It brews a rich golden color and is quite aromatic. If you let it brew a long time, it acquires some ast...

67 / 100 Aroma: 4/10 Flavor: 4/5 Value: 5/5
Dec. 8th, 2009

I've probably drank more Red Rose in my life than all other brands of tea combined. I like it best when it's been steeped for a fairly long time to get maximum tannin extraction. It's certainly never going to be known for it's aroma, but a hot cup of Red Rose will always taste like morning to me. You also have to gi...

Chinese Oolong from Bigelow Tea

Style: Oolong Tea – Region: China

40 / 100 Aroma: 4/10 Flavor: 2/5 Value: 2/5
Dec. 8th, 2009

A darker oolong, somewhat nondescript. No objectionable qualities but overall weak and not very interesting. Not much of the complexity that I expect. I think this one lags behind the quality of Bigelow's flavored teas.

In tea bags of a similar price range, I think Ten Ren offers better oolongs, and they have sev...

Dec. 7th, 2009

I was disappointed by this one, and this is my least favorite tea from Twinings yet. If you brew it with boiling water, it's very astringent. With water at a lower temperature, it's not flavorful enough. The aroma is muddled...this tea, unfortunately, seems to have acquired the worst aspects of a Sencha without the ...

67 / 100 Aroma: 5/10 Flavor: 5/5 Value: 4/5
Dec. 7th, 2009

The teabag reads "Mellow and Light Indian Black Teas" and I agree wholeheartedly. This is very mellow, especially for a Darjeeling in a teabag...this is not the usual stuff put in teabags; it has a fair amount of first-flush character.

The aroma is complex, but could be stronger. The main downside is that this tea...

The tea is nice and grassy. The toasted and popped rice flavors are not as pronounced in this tea as in other varieties, and the green tea itself is mild but overall it is still a very satisfying drink.

The tea may be discontinued.
