Picture of East Frisian BOP

East Frisian BOP from Upton Tea Imports

Style: Ostfriesen Tea (East Frisian Tea) – Region: Blend

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...

Didn't quite like it: the aroma was very kinda like lemon flavored soap or something, the flavor was dominated by this cul. Bah

Immortal Nectar Pu-erh from Art of Tea

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 ...

Bombay Chai from Tea Forte

Style: Chai / Spiced Tea – Region: India

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...

77 / 100 Aroma: 8/10 Flavor: 4/5 Value: 5/5
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...

Great to warm you up when you're cold! Tasty too, though not as amazing as tea from fresh mint leaves.

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...

Jan. 26th, 2010

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.

Jan. 26th, 2010

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 ...

57 / 100 Aroma: 5/10 Flavor: 4/5 Value: 3/5
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...

Excellent tea. Would like a little more body to it by adding a little more to the teabag. Other than that I give it an A+ and would buy it often

70 / 100 Aroma: 8/10 Flavor: 4/5 Value: 4/5
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...

Jan. 11th, 2010

My first Indonesian tea sampled, and I was a bit disappointed, even though I like this style of tea.

This tea is considerably less smoky than most Chinese gunpowder teas I've had...only a moderate amount of smoke. It has a cool quality to the aroma, and a tangy flavor with some bitterness. More similar in all resp...

White Peach from Adagio Teas

Jan. 11th, 2010

This is my favorite white adagio tea so far. The peach flavor is not overpowering but also not too weak. But you do have to make sure to use enough tea leaves or it will be too weak! A very sweet flavor and great aroma over all. I love this tea.

I havn't tried too many oolongs. This was my first flavored oolong. At first I didn't like it. But I think I just had to figure out how to correctly brew it: use enough leaves and leave them in long enough. I like the vanilla smell. And the vanilla flavor is not too strong. It goes well with oolong I think. I'll order...

Jan. 8th, 2010

Very green character, even more than typical for a first-flush, both in the appearance of the leaves and the aroma. The cup is a deep amber color. The aroma is light and mostly floral, almost reminiscent of queen Anne's lace blossoms. On my second brewing I did detect a faint suggestion of spearmint in the aroma, an...
