Rosehip & Hibiscus from Teekanne

Style: Herbal Tea – Region: ?????

69 / 100 Aroma: 7/10 Flavor: 4/5 Value: 3/5
Jan. 21st, 2022

Rosehip and hibiscus teas, by themselves, don't excite me much, because they tend to be on the sour side. I'm not a big fan of sour teas. Still, as those go, this one's among the most flavorful and naturally colorful I've had. It also has one of the stronger dry-bag aromas—more rosy than fruity, and transitions to...

Style: Black Tea – Region: ?????

75 / 100 Aroma: 8/10 Flavor: 4/5 Value: 4/5
Jan. 16th, 2022

The aroma has a earthiness from the Pu-erh and the Keemun. The liquor is a deep brown (5min). Flavor is nice, mild, with a slight sweet after taste. Very enjoyable.

Upton Mist Valley Estate Second Flush from Upton Tea Imports

Style: Black Tea – Region: Nepal

55 / 100 Aroma: 6/10 Flavor: 3/5 Value: 2/5
Jan. 12th, 2022

This is for the 2020 vintage. For some reason, for me at least, when it comes to teas, higher prices do not necessarily mean a more satisfying tea. Usually it means more subtle nuances of flavor and aroma. This moderately expensive tea is an example of what I mean. It is fairly mild and there are some light, nippy ...

Wedding Blend from Murchie's Tea & Coffee Ltd

Style: Miscellaneous Blend – Region: Blend

77 / 100 Aroma: 6/10 Flavor: 5/5 Value: 4/5
Jan. 12th, 2022

Reviewing the loose version here, but I've got a 10-bag sampler pack too, and don't notice any appreciable difference between them in terms of aroma or flavor. This is another among numerous green-black tea blends Murchie's makes (in this case also with roses, cornflowers and jasmine). They largely have mastered wha...

Upton East Frisian Sunday Tea from Upton Tea Imports

Style: Flavored Black Tea – Region: Assam, India

75 / 100 Aroma: 9/10 Flavor: 4/5 Value: 3/5
Jan. 11th, 2022

This is a medium strength tea with some light, woody tannins. It goes best with milk, but it works with lemon and sugar also. It has vanilla in it, and that helps give it a nice aroma, and has a subtle impact on the flavor. Overall, it is a good, versatile tea that I would buy again.

Decaffeinated Black Tea from Great Value

18 / 100 Aroma: 2/10 Flavor: 2/5 Value: 1/5
Jan. 1st, 2022

Brought home from a low-grade motel somewhere in southwestern New Mexico, this tea wasn't high on my priority list to try. Cheap motels are that way for a reason—well, several reasons—one being those that do bother to offer tea often buy cheap tea in bulk from Wal-Mart. The nearest Wal-Mart to this place was at l...

Old South Meeting House Breakfast Blend from Upton Tea Imports

Style: Black Tea – Region: China

70 / 100 Aroma: 8/10 Flavor: 4/5 Value: 2/5
Dec. 27th, 2021

This was a special release from Upton, meant to be a replica of one of the teas tossed overboard during the Boston Tea Party. It is a blend of China Congou and Chinese Bohea - the latter is a new one for me. It originates in the Wuyi Mountains and may have been the first black tea sold to the British. Overall this i...

Upton Cacao Kisses Colombian Black Tea from Upton Tea Imports

Style: Flavored Black Tea – Region: Colombia

85 / 100 Aroma: 8/10 Flavor: 5/5 Value: 4/5
Dec. 16th, 2021

Here is a successful marriage of black tea with cacao. When drunk with milk and sugar, a pleasant chocolate flavor emerges that blends well with the base tea, which (surpise!) one can taste. This is a nice treat from Upton.

Yunnan FOP Select from Upton Tea Imports

80 / 100 Aroma: 9/10 Flavor: 3/5 Value: 5/5
Dec. 14th, 2021

Here is a nice Yunnan. The aroma is fresh and woodsy, like taking an April walk in a park. The flavor is smooth and mild, with a little bit of astringency on the palate. It is well worth the modest price.

92 / 100 Aroma: 9/10 Flavor: 5/5 Value: 5/5
Dec. 14th, 2021

I'm a sucker for rich, strong, flavored black teas, and two of my very favorite flavors are peppermint and vanilla. This seasonal tea combines all three, into one of the best flavored loose-leaf blends I've ever had. The product releases a very creamy, minty aroma on opening the dry sack, which I could stand there an...

Christmas Tea; Mélange Noël from Upton Tea Imports

Style: Flavored Black Tea – Region: Blend

80 / 100 Aroma: 8/10 Flavor: 4/5 Value: 5/5
Dec. 13th, 2021

I am happy with the 2021 version of this. The amount of spices hits the spot, and they blend well with the base tea. It is a little on the mild side, with vanilla, clove, almond, and a touch of citrus. I like it best with honey and milk, but other combinations also get the job done. Very reasonably priced too.
