One-litre pot at home, made from dried leaves and blossom of organic sideritis. Pours clear peach yellow (against white china) with no sediment.

Somerset Estate BOP from Upton Tea Imports

Style: Black Tea – Region: Sri Lanka / Ceylon

85 / 100 Aroma: 8/10 Flavor: 5/5 Value: 5/5
Dec. 9th, 2021

Nice mild earthy aroma. The liquor brews to a light amber (5 mins). Nice mild OP taste. Easy to sip. For me, it would be too mild for sugar or cream. Classic Ceylon.

Dec. 8th, 2021

The aroma of this tea is incredible. I love grapefruit so I curious to try it. I usually do not drink flavored teas. This tea is enjoyable. It brewed up to a deep amber/brown liquor (5mins). The taste is light, the citrus is there with a subtle hint of vanilla. I think it would pair well with a sweet desert (lemon cake...

Dec. 1st, 2021

Here's the third offering reviewed here, and the second-best to me, from a 4-pack sample of the various seasonal holiday teas Murchie's produces. As with the others, they are flavored loose blends, in this case composed of black tea, jasmine green, calendula flowers, elder flowers, and unspecified "natural and artifi...

Dec. 1st, 2021

I have ordered this tea many times over the years, and am surprised I did not rate it yet. In the past it has been a well-priced and full-flavored tea experience, and a go-to when I wanted something malty and smoky, with a little milk and no sugar. My most recent purchase of it was less enjoyable. This time a harsh,...

Purely Peppermint from Teekanne

Style: Peppermint Tea – Region: ?????

81 / 100 Aroma: 9/10 Flavor: 5/5 Value: 3/5
Nov. 26th, 2021

The version I have simply is called "Peppermint" without the "Purely" or "Soothing" parts, though I have seen the white-box "Soothing" version in stores too. The ingredient in both simply is peppermint leaves. I don't know if it has been wholly renamed, or if this is just a relabeling of the same tea for different ma...

Evergreen from Murchie's Tea & Coffee Ltd

78 / 100 Aroma: 8/10 Flavor: 4/5 Value: 4/5
Nov. 21st, 2021

Evergreen is a unique tea, to say the least. That usually means it's going to be a major turn-off, a surprising crowd-pleaser, or just weird. How about, "pleasantly weird"?

Like Shania's boyfriends in her pop-country song, the first couple cups had me thinking, "That don't impress me much!" Unlike them with her, ...

Each box contains 10 individually plastic-wrapped pyramid sachets, with visible, chopped pieces of green tea leaves and lavender buds at about a 20/1 ratio, and an invisible natural flavoring in the form of powdered blueberry juice. A pinch of matcha powder accumulates in the bottom crease of the wrapper, and can be d...

Nov. 14th, 2021

Call me a complete sucker for quality teas of this ilk, I suppose. This is Murchie's version of Constant Comment, which I also rate very highly, but with a few differences. In addition to cloves, orange peel and cinnamon, which the Bigelow product uses, Murchie's adds vanilla. This makes it less sharp than Constant ...

Peppermint from TEViVE

Nov. 9th, 2021

It's not hard to get peppermint tea right: just use properly grown and dried leaves and put enough in the bag to fill it when wet. They got the first part, and failed miserably on the second.

I've had a lot of peppermint teas, and the quality of the leaves they use stands with any of them, even with a few choppe...

Nov. 7th, 2021

What Murchie's does well⁠, they utterly excel, and that's most of their teas. But on very uncommon occasions they spin out a head-scratching clunker that grossly defies their sterling reputation. This, friends, is the latter.

As an OU football fan, a great analogy is that one time just about every season when ...

Nov. 7th, 2021

Thanks Dewey for sharing this with me! This was a smooth, mellow, mild green tea that was easy to brew and enjoy.

The leaf of this smells very fresh, a sort of sweet fragrance, almost floral, typical of high-quality, tippy Chinese green teas. It's pleasant but also hard to anticipate how it is going to taste, so I w...

Teekanne markets numerous assorted fruit infusions on multiple nation-domain websites. Curiously, I can't find this product (by this name anyway, or by another with the same ingredients) anywhere on Teekanne's main dot-com English-language website, nor German, nor their Austrian site .at, which is in English. Yet it'...

This tea is really good! It’s aromatic and bready smelling which I like. The taste is really smooth and it has a complex flavor with slight bitterness but in a good way! This is a really enjoyable tea!

Murchie's carries so many different tea blends that it takes a long time—years, at a normal tea-drinking pace—to get around to trying most of them. I wish this one had landed on my porch sooner! This may be the richest, smoothest, fullest-bodied all-black tea blend of theirs, or anybody's for that matter, that I'...

Jinggu "Da Jin Ya" Camellia Taliensis Black Tea from Yunnan Sourcing

Style: Yunnan Gold – Region: Jinggu, Yunnan, China

87 / 100 Aroma: 6/10 Flavor: 5/5 Value: 4/5
Oct. 30th, 2021

This tea is pretty smooth and easy to drink, however it is a bit boring and doesn’t have a super strong aroma. I’m still giving it a highish score just because it is a comforting tea to drink and it doesn’t have any outwardly negative qualities like being too harsh or astringent.
