Irish Breakfast from DAVIDsTEA

Style: Black Tea – Region: Blend

60 / 100 Aroma: 6/10 Flavor: 3/5 Value: 3/5
Dec. 17th, 2017

This tea is OK. It's like the dregs of the English Breakfast tea though. Smaller cut, like the English tea was shaken and this is what fell out. You might be disappointed if you like the English, but I'm sure this is very good if you prefer Irish Breakfast.

Earl Grey from DAVIDsTEA

Dec. 17th, 2017

This is what Earl Grey should aspire to be. Good, strong bergamot which many other Earl Greys lack. This is one of my staples.

Overpriced for what you get. I like the tin though. This is a utility tea; it'll wake you up without being unpleasant tasting.

This will get the job done, but it's not much of a tea. I don't dislike it, but it's like drinking a big cup of Delaware. Thoroughly forgettable.

Good tea. This is what breakfast tea should taste like. A bit pricey, but not a deal breaker.

This is my baseline tea. Very serviceable, at CAD$5 for 60 bags it's a good value.

48 / 100 Aroma: 5/10 Flavor: 3/5 Value: 3/5
Dec. 16th, 2017

The first thing that struck me is that it looks and smells exactly like gunpowder tea, even though it isn't called that anywhere. It's not a problem, I even have an idea why one might not want to market gunpowder tea as gunpowder tea (if that really is what this is). The origin and a name might sound more enticing that...

80 / 100 Aroma: 9/10 Flavor: 4/5 Value: 4/5
Dec. 13th, 2017

Great Yunnan scent. Large leaves. Nice honey colored liquor. Taste is good, a bit mild. I'm sure this will be a great 'all day' tea. Might be a bit mild for milk or cream. Minor problem with I needed to purchase 10 packets to get the full amount I wanted.

84 / 100 Aroma: 7/10 Flavor: 4/5 Value: 4/5
Dec. 9th, 2017

A relatively smooth black tea that I thought tasted better when brewed more strongly. One of the many samples TEAORB sent me, thank you!

Dry leaf, dark in appearance, slightly broken, with a gently curved shape, smells mild, pleasant but uninteresting: fruity and a little bit dusty.

The brewed cup smells sweet, ...

Dec. 9th, 2017

This tea tastes sort of bready and soapy at the same time, but in a good way. It's not too strong and not too astringent, which is good. It's a nice tea to have with bland foods because stronger foods would overpower the flavor of the tea. Overall this was a pretty decent tea, however, there are much cheaper tea that I...

Dec. 7th, 2017

I couldn't resist the 500 g box, it only cost €4.50 so it's extremely cheap. With such bulk teas from Turkish shops I have sometimes gotten lucky, sometimes not.

This one is drinkable, I guess. It's just very finely broken so I have to be really careful not to oversteep it, it easily gets unpleasantly sour and bit...

Dec. 5th, 2017

Of all the black teas I've ever sampled, this one surprised me the most on the second steep. The first cup was very good but not particularly remarkable, but the second one, wow, it had an explosion of floral aroma that made it smell almost as if it had been scented with jasmine.

The dry leaf looks long, wiry, and ...

Found this at the Sacramento Natural Foods Coop when looking for an alternative to the tea at my motel. I really like this tea. I brewed for 5 minutes and it has a slightly sweet flavor. I didn't detect any bitterness or astringency to it. It's very smooth. At a little more than $3 for 20 bags it seems like a good deal...

Dec. 3rd, 2017

I haven't had a bad offering from Murchie's yet, and this one isn't either. Of the herbs used to flavor the Chinese green tea (lemongrass, ginger, peppermint, fennel, and lemon peel), I can taste the fennel and lemongrass best, and the peppermint least. Since peppermint tends to be a potent, dominating kind of herb, ...

Nov. 28th, 2017

Got this at the cafe at the St. Louis Museum of Art. Gunpowder tea in a bag seemed a little strange to me. I steeped for two minutes. It was pretty good. No qualities that jumped out at me, just a decent cup.

Nov. 27th, 2017

A soft tea that was less interesting than most of the other black teas TEAORB has sent me, but still very pleasant to drink. Reminds me a lot of hot chocolate; something I'd drink later in the afternoon.

The dry leaf of this tea is very dark, thick, and wiry, and noticeably more broken than many of the other large-...

Nov. 25th, 2017

My friend gave me some of this tea to try.

I'm not good at tasting the difference between different greenish oolongs. Jade oolong, four seasons, Tie Guanyin, they often taste almost the same to me. It was the same with this one at the first steeping.

The second cup tasted different, though, like jade oolong but g...

Nov. 22nd, 2017

This tea smelled fantastic, but it was disappointing when I actually brewed it. It also didn't seem to match the commercial description or my expectations for an English Breakfast blend.

The dry leaf has a fresh, light fruity aroma, smelling very sweet and bright. The fruitiness is more like fresh grapes than drie...

Sweet Orange Tea from Tradition

65 / 100 Aroma: 7/10 Flavor: 3/5 Value: 4/5
Nov. 21st, 2017

The oversized sachet contains 3g of black tea that is broken, but large pieces. The orange scent is strong and there's a kind of vanilla sweetness that is almost cloying. Even so, the aroma of the tea comes through, smelling perhaps like either a Darjeeling or Chinese tea. Unfortunately, the packaging doesn't indicate ...

Nov. 20th, 2017

For peppermint, it's hard to top CS' version. As noted in some of my other peppermint tea reviews, this is an herb that is difficult to ruin anyway, and I love the flavor, whether stand-alone or mixed with other products (teas, candies, cookies, etc.). Some tea companies do use stems as cheap filler, or unadvertised ...

This tea is somewhere between exotic and bizarrre, but I really enjoyed it. Thank you TEAORB for the sample! Like a good book or song, I notice new qualities in it each time I experience it.

The dry leaf, which consists of long, intact leaves, tightly rolled, with a curly and crinkly shape, has a smoky and vegetal...

Nov. 15th, 2017

Out of all the teas on this planet, oolong, in all its varieties, is my favorite. I received this particular type as part of the monthly deal from this company in a loose leaf form.

This oolong had a nice earthy smell that was slightly stronger compared to other oolongs I have had. Its flavor was smooth all the way ...

Nov. 15th, 2017

As always, the value for these teas is wonderful. This was my first time trying genmaicha, and I really did not care for it.

This loose leaf tea is made from corn and rice (essentially). You can really smell the rice, but with this combo the flavor is very bland. It tastes like you are drinking rice crispies with a ...
