Koslanda Estate OP from Upton Tea Imports

Style: Ceylon Black Tea – Region: Uva, Sri Lanka

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...

Constant Comment® from Bigelow Tea

Style: Flavored Black Tea – Region: ?????

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

a wonderful white tea blend, but a little on the expensive side to me.

I was disappointed with this tea, it seems sour tasting to me even when I brew it right.

Japanese Ku-Ki Ho-Ji Cha (Roasted Ku-Ki Cha) from Upton Tea Imports

Style: Hojicha – Region: Japan

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...

Superfruit Unity Green Tea from Teavana

Apr. 22nd, 2010

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.

90 / 100 Aroma: 9/10 Flavor: 4/5 Value: 5/5
Apr. 22nd, 2010

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.

Apr. 22nd, 2010

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.

Has a fairly decent aroma as well as a nice balance between the lemon and ginger. It can be a bit bland, but is nice as an afternoon tea on a sunny day.

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.

70 / 100 Aroma: 9/10 Flavor: 3/5 Value: 2/5
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.

Sitting down to review a couple of teas from Kalahari Tea, one from their Energy Tea line and the other from their Chocolatte Red (Rooibos) line. Both teas are bagged but I’m open minded and I have had high quality teas that happened to be prebagged in the past (usually tear them open so I can watch the leaves dance ...

A friend who knows the owners of Rishi brewed a cup of this then gave me a sample to take home. I brewed some for friends who normally will only drink Oolong -- they loved it too.

This is the bag tea I use most frequently as an alternative to Assam, Kemun, Yunnan, or Darjeeling loose leaf teas. It holds up well to milk and a bit of sugar, doesn't have the slightly fishy taste of some major commercial brands.

I am a fan of Rooibos. I love all teas, but there is something about Rooibos that is more appealing to me. Perhaps it is my sweet tooth, which appreciates the natural sweetness of Rooibos, or perhaps it is because Rooibos tends to blend with so many “sweet” flavours such as Caramel and Vanilla. Whatever it is, I am...

Let me start by saying, I am not a coffee drinker. For me, the tea I choose to drink throughout the day will be dependent on my mood. This tea would be one that I would use to start my day, as I think it has the ability to give you that initial morning burst that many people claim to get from that first pot of java....

Apr. 22nd, 2010

The dry leaf is flaky in appearance, meaning it is probably a steamed tea like a sencha. But the aroma is totally unlike sencha.

Brewing as I would Sencha, this comes out a cloudy grayish green, more yellowish than most Japanese teas but greener than most pan-fired teas.

This tea is packed with flavor: a rich, c...

Wegmans green tea is one of the better cheap green teas. It has a basic green tea taste. I could drink it every morning. It's a good stand-by, especially for those of us on a budget. It is really cheap but has a good flavor.
