Java Malabar Plantation Black Tea from Simpson & Vail

Style: Black Tea – Region: West Java, Indonesia

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

97 / 100 Aroma: 8/10 Flavor: 5/5 Value: 5/5
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...

Style: Flavored Black Tea – Region: Sri Lanka / Ceylon

74 / 100 Aroma: 7/10 Flavor: 4/5 Value: 4/5
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...

Ultra Select Green Tea from Cain's

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.

When Life Gives You Lemons Add Mint & Ginger from Trader Joe's

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.

Earl Grey Crème Black Tea from Teavana

May. 11th, 2019

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.

Assam Nokhroy Estate Black Tea (STGSOP1) from Simpson & Vail

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.

Apr. 23rd, 2019

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.

Apr. 21st, 2019

Once again, I drank a Twinings product, wondering how this brand gained enough of a reputation or loyalty to have lasted so long. The peppermint in these bags wasn't bad, but wasn't great either. Lots of stems too! It reminded me a lot of cheap/knock-off store brands or some of the lower-quality food-service pepperm...

Apr. 19th, 2019

Mmmmmmm...delicious from the first dry-bag sniff through the cup and even in the aftertaste! Finally again, for only the second time in my experience: a coconut-flavored green tea that really is coconut-dominant, and since I enjoy coconut a lot, that's a good thing.

The best part is that the coconut flavor asser...

70 / 100 Aroma: 7/10 Flavor: 4/5 Value: 4/5
Apr. 17th, 2019

The only difference I've detected between this product and regular Sleepytime is the addition of valerian root to the ingredients list, and a caution on the side of the box about not driving or operating machinery after using, as if this is some herbal-tea version of Ambien or Sominex. Of course, it's not. I'm writin...

I'm not a big mint fan but I thought I would give this a try. It's a good quality tea but for me it's too minty but after putting some sweetener in it was better.

Apr. 14th, 2019

Too bad this tea has been discontinued, because it's an acceptable (not great to the point of blowing one's mind, but pretty decent) take on rooibos/herbal blending. As with other rooibos teas I've tried, the first impression wasn't anything to brag about, but it grew on me after a few bags, and I came to appreciate i...

Estate sales can be an unconventional way to try new teas upon which one normally wouldn't gamble the full cost of purchase. In this case, the tea apparently has been retired, and can't be bought anymore, but was shrink-wrapped in the box (never opened) and still in fresh condition. [I got it as part of a larger grab...

This is the second tea I’ve tried that mixes a green tea with matcha powder in a teabag. It wasn’t bad! I enjoyed my second test more than my first. Like the Celestial Seasonings offering that mixes green tea with matcha powder, this tea is better than the average bagged cheap green tea I’ve tried, as it increase...

This is another great tea from the Fava Tea company. I bought five different rooibos teas from them and they all got packaged in a nice black resealable pouch. It even had a hand written note with it to thank me for the order and a ton of flyers about tea and the benefits of it. Great packaging and fast shipping. Also ...

Apr. 7th, 2019

I’ve decided to try a few blends of matcha with other green tea and started with this brand. Given that I’ve never been overwhelmingly impressed with Celestial Seasonings, it was better than expected!

Though it cannot take the place of an actual matcha craving, the addition of matcha added a bit of sweetness and...

Found this in a Chinese market at the mall in Arcadia, CA. They had a huge selection of teas. I picked up a couple of ounces of this. It was priced at $30 per pound.

It is a very dark tea, black actually, and it has a heavy, smoky smell. However, after brewing the flavor is not as intense as you would expect. The br...

Apr. 4th, 2019

At first glance, the tea looks odd for Twinings. Twinings's loose teas are usually broken leaf, but the pieces are much larger and appear to be better quality than what goes into the teabags. The Darjeeling is different. The loose tea pieces are tiny and uniform and look exactly like what goes into the teabags. Like mo...
