57 / 100 Aroma: 6/10 Flavor: 3/5 Value: 2/5
Apr. 30th, 2010

this is alright as earl greys go, but certainly not excellent. the bergamot was not as strong as i like it. smooth.

kind of expensive. there are better earl greys out there... my favorite is zhena's gypsy - uplifting earl grey. earl grey supreme by rishi is also good.

this is my second-favorite earl grey [second to Zhena's Gypsy Tea Uplifting Earl Grey].

Since the Gypsy's offering is my favorite, i use it as a standard to compare other earl greys to.

aroma:
dry leaves: wonderful. while different from Gypsy, it is equally great. Rishi has a sweeter smell more closely remini...

note: the tea i'm reviewing is labeled as 'uplifting earl grey.' i am assuming that they've recently changed the name to 'earl greater grey.' when i see the new version around, i'll give it a try. i'll update this review if the new version is a different product.

note: this is the only lapsang souchong i've tried.

very powerful in both flavor and aroma. a very smokey smell. many people i've offered it to told me it smells like a camp fire. i definitely smell the terpenes (chemicals from the pine wood).

Style: Rooibos – Region: South Africa

67 / 100 Aroma: 6/10 Flavor: 5/5 Value: 4/5
Apr. 29th, 2010

At the risk of sounding absolutely ridiculous, I'm going to say that this rooibos smells and tastes more like rooibos than any other rooibos I've tried yet!

Woody, with a hint of fruitiness...but also a quality that is slightly reminiscent of paint or socks. Perhaps rooibos is an acquired taste that I'm still not 1...

Apr. 29th, 2010

appearance: lives up to the name. dull green leaves covered with fine, silvery hairs.
post-brew: plump, meaty-looking pale green leaves that retain a half-fold [stem-wise].
a pretty tea.

this is a legitimate white tea. the liquor has a pale yellow-green color. virtually no bitterness even with extended brewing t...

Organic Pure Green Tea from Bigelow Tea

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

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...

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.

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

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...
