Spiced Chai from Trader Joe's

Style: Chai / Spiced Tea – Region: ?????

82 / 100 Aroma: 8/10 Flavor: 4/5 Value: 4/5
Jun. 12th, 2019

This tea is pleasant, especially with a little milk added. (Note: I recommend warming the milk in the microwave briefly and pouring the hot water into it when making tea.) There’s a distinct but not entirely unpleasant sharpness to this tea that is improved with the milk, though it can still be enjoyed plain. The spi...

Organic Sencha Tea from Trader Joe's

Style: Sencha – Region: Japan

70 / 100 Aroma: 6/10 Flavor: 3/5 Value: 4/5
Jun. 11th, 2019

This tea is not bad but it isn’t overwhelming. I generally prefer loose leaf anyway, as a cup of bagged tea often isn’t as strong as I like. It’s fairly easy to avoid bitterness in this tea, but it’s still good not to brew the tea too hot or too long — as is generally true for green teas. Not bad as a potenti...

Earl Grey from Twinings

Style: Earl Grey Tea – Region: ?????

64 / 100 Aroma: 4/10 Flavor: 4/5 Value: 4/5
Jun. 6th, 2019

I got this from a restaurant hot-tea selection box and took home an extra bag to taste-test on good well water. The bergamot was somewhat feeble throughout the consumption experience. Still, it's among the better Twinings teas I've had (yes, I realize that's not saying much).

Sweetened, as I always do, this prod...

Peppermint from TEViVE

Style: Peppermint Tea – Region: ?????

78 / 100 Aroma: 9/10 Flavor: 4/5 Value: 3/5
Jun. 5th, 2019

The weird thing about TEViVE teas is that the teabags contain half of the tea or herb or whatever of other brands. The flavored black teas each contain one gram of tea instead of two. The peppermint teabags contain .6 gram while my box of Stash teabags have a full gram. Whenever I make this, I use twice as many teabags...

Harney and Son’s Organic Jasmine from Harney and Sons

Style: Flavored Green Tea – Region: China

80 / 100 Aroma: 8/10 Flavor: 4/5 Value: 5/5
Jun. 5th, 2019

I purchased Harney and Son's Organic Jasmine along with their Dragon Jasmine Pearls and their Jasmine (non-organic). I brewed all of them according to Harney and Son's directions (1 tsp tea to 1c water at 175F for 3 min).

Organic Jasmine has the least jasmine aroma and flavor of the three. That's not to say it isn't...

I purchased Harney and Son's loose Jasmine tea along with their Dragon Jasmine Pearls and their Organic Jasmine. I brewed all of them according to Harney and Son's directions (1 tsp tea to 1 cup water at 175F for 3 min).

The "Jasmine" had the strongest aroma and most pronounced jasmine flavor of the three. It was al...

Dragon Pearl Jasmine from Harney and Sons

86 / 100 Aroma: 9/10 Flavor: 5/5 Value: 4/5
Jun. 5th, 2019

I ordered this tea loose and brewed it exactly to Harney & Sons directions (1 tsp per cup at 175F for 3 minutes). The aroma is sublime. The color is very light golden straw. The flavor is soft, fragrant, not bitter at all. Compared to Harney and Son's "Jasmine" and "Organic Jasmine" the Dragon Pearl Jasmine is more sub...

Jun. 4th, 2019

Good quality, straightforward hibiscus flower tea. Bulk hibiscus flowers are cheap, but quality can be hit or miss. Though many (or even most) blended herbal teas contain hibiscus, few brands offer unblended hibiscus teabags and the ones that do tend to be overpriced.

Hibiscus is tart and fruity, almost like unsweet...

Japanese Matcha + Green Tea from Matcha Love

76 / 100 Aroma: 8/10 Flavor: 5/5 Value: 3/5
Jun. 3rd, 2019

The bold print on the box says "matcha + green tea". The smaller print—green tea blend with matcha—is more correct. Each of the triangular clear sachets (not "tea bags" as we know them in paper form) contains a reasonable amount of finely chopped green tea leaves and just a pinch of matcha powder. Don't forget t...

Jun. 1st, 2019

Since finding their regular bagged tea a couple years ago, I was hoping to run across the decaf version for a taste test too, and also, for a pre-bedtime black-tea chug after another day spent roaming the highways and byways of this land. For some reason, outside of the occasional Bigelow bag, it's hard to find decaf ...

Bold Breakfast from Dunkin Donuts

Style: Black Tea – Region: Blend

May. 31st, 2019

I bought a cup of this from a Dunkin Donuts and liked it, so I bought a box to brew at home. The sachets are large and each contains 3g of finely-chopped tea. The box doesn't say which teas are in the blend (other than "from around the World"), but the tea looks orthodox rather than CTC.

The brewing tea has a strong...

Throat Coat® from Traditional Medicinals

May. 28th, 2019

My family has been drinking Throat Coat for at least 15+ years. It's the first thing we reach for when we have colds. It is very soothing on the throat, helps open breathing passages, and temporarily reduces coughing. Highly recommend a 5 min covered steep time, a squeeze of lemon, and honey to taste. On it's own it t...

One of the all-time best iced teas I've ever had. Hot summer day Paris 2018... marching around the Louvre we stumbled upon Mariage Freres tea shop in the underground gallery. Unfamiliar with what to choose and overwhelmed by the immense selection, the server asked what flavor profiles I liked. I said, "I like earl grey...

75 / 100 Aroma: 8/10 Flavor: 4/5 Value: 4/5
May. 25th, 2019

Appearance and aroma bring a Keemun to mind. Woodsy liquor with a solid taste, and nice rich amber color. Malty with a pleasant after taste. I think this will be easy to enjoy anytime of day. I was hesitant to buy this because some of the teas I have tried that are grown outside the 'traditional' regions, can have an a...

Crimson Lishan from Floating Leaves

Style: Black Tea – Region: Taiwan / Formosa

May. 23rd, 2019

Brewing style: 4g leaf in 80ml gaiwan at 212°F/100°C

Steam-damp leaf aroma is cassia spice & malty raisin.

The infusion maintains these notes, golden & complex, with a strong energy lingering in the throat. Broth is lightly astringent & medium bodied, with a slight honey viscosity. Warming & grounding. If blac...

May. 20th, 2019

Curiously, this line of tea isn't found on the TEAViVE website as of this writing, but I have no problem finding it in a local Dollar Tree, where I first saw it. On the bottom of the boxes, TEAViVE provides a batch number and "best before" date, as well as lists the blueberry and honey flavorings as being natural. Th...

May. 18th, 2019

We first found this in an estate-sale pantry. Then my wife bought another box, because she enjoyed it as a morning and midday tea, when she didn't want something quite as potent as her favorite Assam or Irish breakfast blends. Loath to pilfer her teas and disharmonize domestic tranquility, I've just had a couple bags...

May. 15th, 2019

First off, thanks for the props on the backstory of this tea, Alex. It's a fascinating look into how brands bounce hither and yon. Somehow, someone under the Farmer Brothers umbrella still is making Cain's teas, and the ones I've had aren't duplicates of the corresponding Farmer Brothers products so far.

Style: Flavored Green Tea – Region: Blend

80 / 100 Aroma: 8/10 Flavor: 4/5 Value: 5/5
May. 13th, 2019

The citrus and peppermint work surprisingly well to create a bright cup. The orange and lemon blend in a way that creates a broad citrus experience without either one dominating. The second cup I made was basically identical to the first, which is impressive. All in all, this is a decent tea!

May. 12th, 2019

This tea is tart in a way I like but not actually strong enough. The hibiscus is a strong element in this one. I like it, but I’d like it more if the combination of flavors was more intense. This is not a bad tasting tea at all, in my opinion, but it’s weak considered to similar teas I’ve tried.

This is my favorite Earl Grey Cream tea yet, and that's not a knock on Murchie's excellent rendition, which is a better value but just a notch below Teavana in richness.

Teavana has undergone a remaking of its marketing and strategy under the Starbucks banner: no more stand-alone tea shops, just 15-sachet plastic t...

Pure Green Matcha Green Tea Blend from Salada

Style: Green Tea – Region: ?????

64 / 100 Aroma: 6/10 Flavor: 3/5 Value: 3/5
May. 4th, 2019

This combination of matcha and green tea was fairly non-descript. It wasn’t offensive, but it didn’t do much for me. Overbrewing does turn it a bit bitter, so be sure not to leave the bag in excessively. I still have more of the box, so I may update this entry if my opinion changes after a few tries.

70 / 100 Aroma: 7/10 Flavor: 4/5 Value: 4/5
Apr. 28th, 2019

It was a bit of challenge to describe the aroma. I finally decided on 'sweet pine'. There is a 'wood' aroma with a definite 'sweet' under tone. The liquor is a deep amber color, malty. I'm not catching any 'peppery' after taste. A decent Assam. Good price for a good tea.

This tea smells really good when it's in the bag. It has a strong banana smell, however it stills smells good in the cup but not as good. I tasted a hint of banana while drinking it and this is quiet interesting.
