Have you ever walked into the lobby of a tire shop, and noted its distinctive aroma of freshly manufactured tire rubber? That was my immediate impression of the taste/scent blend upon drinking this tea, and I can't shake it. It's as if someone liquefied that air in a tire store, and stirred it into a tea. The websit...

Feb. 13th, 2021

One of my co-workers has been quaffing this tea with devoted fervor for a few months since I introduced him to drinking any tea. In turn, he gave me some of this. Knowing how much Harney tea tins cost even at Target, I wouldn't have bought this on my own, but it's not bad to try for free. I based the value on the kn...

This tea is pretty good for bagged tea -- more balanced than the herbal apple cinnamon tea. This is a solid tea when needing the convenience of a bag. I taste a bit of licorice, which I'm not a big fan of, but it isn't dominant. The cinnamon flavor is pretty nice.

Feb. 9th, 2021

I usually like strong teas and this one has a very subtle flavor with no substantial base to it. When I first tasted it I liked the creamy flavor, but after a while I've gotten tired of it. It has a bright red hue that turns pale pink when I add cream or milk. Probably because of the beets. I can barely taste the almo...

Feb. 9th, 2021

This tea is pleasant so long as it is NOT overbrewed. The tea is very sweet even without sweetener, and the longer it's brewed the sweeter and more intense in flavor it generally gets. I normally prefer strong flavors in my tea, so it's remarkable to me that this is the first time I find a tea to be a bit *too* much. I...

Feb. 9th, 2021

Here is a blend of China Congou and Lapsang Souchong that works out quite well. The LS is the dominant flavor, with the other tea smoothing and mellowing the taste a bit. It goes well with plant milk. I thought the price was a little high for this type of tea, but I would reach for it again if I was in the mood for a...

Really great tea! The aroma is fruity and floral and the taste is floral as well without tasting soapy at all. It is also very smooth and thick bodied with little astringency. Overall a very wonderful tea and I would buy it again.

This blend of Indian, Chinese, and Taiwanese teas has a very good aroma imo - toasty and woody, with a little caramel and butterscotch. The flavor is reasonably robust but not heavy, with a dash of metallic tannins. I had it with milk, and tried it with lemon and sugar too. That also worked out well, and which is un...

This is a really great tea, it has a complex aroma and flavor. This type of tea is normally expensive but this one is cheaper yet the taste is perfect. And of course, as you all know my biggest issue with teas is ones that are too astringent, and this tea was not astringent at all so it's perfect!

The aroma of this tea wasn't very strong at all. The taste was smooth but there wasn't really much else interesting about it. Still, it's an easy to drink agreeable tea.

Jan. 28th, 2021

The aroma is just a classic bready black tea smell which is very nice however it lacks complexity and was very one-noted. The taste on the other hand was incredibly smooth and was one of the least astringent teas I've ever had (which is a good thing for me). The taste wasn't extremely complex but the flavors it did hav...

The first thing I notice about this tea is the very comforting aroma it has. It smells and tastes sort of like freshly baked bread. It is a very smooth and easy to drink tea while still being very flavorful and interesting. It's thick bodied and it is not astringent at all which I really like.

Clove aroma and taste with additional whiffs of I don't know what.. maybe nutmeg and black pepper.

Overall very pleasant. I got a sample of this and will definitely get more. A good choice late in the day for a caffeine free cup

This tea does not have a strong aroma either in the can or in the cup. Not very malty in flavor, and just ever so slightly astringent. It brews up nice and clear with a very clean taste. Its a nice cup in the morning, but does not have the kick of an Assam tea.

Prince Charles isn't among most heavily advertised teas in the large assortment Murchie's carries, but maybe it should be. It was, according to the website, "originally blended in 1981 to commemorate the Royal Wedding of Charles and Diana." Good thing this tea long outlasted that marriage!

The dry bag gave a sharp...

This is remarkable for a bagged tea. I tend to expect a mediocre tea in certain kinds of bagged tea. As a general rule, I think the delicacy flavors of jasmine green tea is a challenge to get right if it isn’t loose leaf or tea pearls, but this is an impressive cup. I managed to get two cups out of it. while the seco...

The aroma is mild with a bit of spiciness. The liquor is a very dark brown. Strong flavor, with a smoky after taste that stays on the tongue. A good 'strong' tea.

My wife is trying to cut back caffeine intake, and had me include this offering in the latest virtual "Murchie's run" that we do a time or two per year. And being a big fan of both happy marriages and the $CAD---->$USD exchange rates the last few years, I did not object.

Now that I've tried the tea, I'm glad that I...

I find it a bit weird, but I often like the taste of a good decaf better than the taste of the same regularly caffeinated drink. They can have a nice savory mouthfeel without bitterness.

This decaf is solid, especially for a teabag. For those expressly wanting a non-caffeinated bag tea, this is a strong choice!

This tea was quite different, especially relative to other Chinese teas. I enjoyed it a lot.

The dry leaf of this is long and straight, and has a mild aroma that is unlike most Yunnan teas: mostly fruity, and smelling more like grape than anything else, with some herbaceous, skunky undertones. It is reminiscent of s...

Jan. 3rd, 2021

The only other reviews so far give it 90 and a 100 points, so it looks like this is a contrasting view. I found it to be both a little bitter and bland, without much floral flavor or aroma. I got a sachet of this as a freebie with another order, so they may have been giving away some out-of-date product.
