Russian Earl Grey from Lipton Tea

Style: Blue Flower Earl Grey – Region: Blend

35 / 100 Aroma: 5/10 Flavor: 2/5 Value: 2/5
Aug. 3rd, 2017

When I first bought this tea, I had such a bad cold that I could taste any difference between this and, say, gunpowder. It all just tasted like hot water to me.

Luckily, this turned out to have a bit more flavour and aroma once my cold cleared and I could taste things again.
The dry tea has relatively little aroma,...

Terra Tee from Het Gouden Randje

49 / 100 Aroma: 5/10 Flavor: 2/5 Value: 4/5
Aug. 2nd, 2017

A friend of mine drinks lots of flavoured rooibos, and after trying a few cheap bagged varieties, I decided I like citrus-flavoured rooibos and got some loose rooibos.

This rooibos with (among others) lemongrass and ginger is okay, but I don't like it that much. I can't really get it to taste like much more than lem...

A very spicy, gingery black tea with a burst of coconut. The cinnamon and ginger both blend into a strong spicy kick!

Finest Oolong from Simon Lévelt

43 / 100 Aroma: 4/10 Flavor: 2/5 Value: 3/5
Aug. 2nd, 2017

This tea could almost be summarised in a single word: Nutty. It has an intensely nutty aroma and flavour. It also reminds me of dry autumn leaves (not that I've tasted many of those, but I can't shake the association). I'm not a fan of nutty teas, so I don't really enjoy this one.

This is the first tea I tried with ...

China Yunnan from Mark T. Wendell

Aug. 2nd, 2017

This came in my second order from Mark T. Wendell. It looks nice in the tin, dark brown and gold mixed together. It has a pleasant faint smell. After steeping for 4 minutes it produces a deep red color. The aroma remains faint. The taste is smooth and very good with a peppery component that others have mentioned. It's ...

Aug. 2nd, 2017

This tea smells pleasantly fungal and like straw, like damp autumn leaves and moist earth. The flavour is very soft and smooth and it never gets bitter or sour. I have, in the past, forgotten about it and left it to steep for more than five, maybe even ten minutes, and it's still been smooth. Even when it's strong, tho...

First impressions, The smell of raspberry is very welcoming. However, the taste is also full of raspberry that it’s overpowering the subtle hints of green tea. The bitterness of the tea base and the raspberry flavour don’t go well together...

I found this tea by accident at Walmart. I purchased it & to my surprise it was awesome. I had been having some issues with my stomach and this tea really calmed things down. Well eventually I went the entire box & now I can no longer find it. I have searched several Walmart with no luck!

Been drinking this for 20-something years. Even back in my coffee drinking days, this is what was thrown in the food sack when we'd go out backpacking and climbing. Brewed with mountain stream water over a butane cooker on a cold mountain morning, this tea did the trick. It's strong with a good flavor. One of it's mai...

Jul. 28th, 2017

I found this tea at an Indian market. It cost $9 for a kilo in an airtight bag. It's a CTC tea. It has little aroma in the bag. I brewed it for 5 minutes. It came out clear and deep red. It produced a brew with slight aroma and mild flavor, just a bit of bitterness. Not a bad taste, but nothing particularly good. It wi...

Jul. 27th, 2017

This tea is probably the cheapest tea I've ever bought at under €3.50 for 500 grams, and incredibly good as well.

The dry tea smells intensely of bergamot, and the brewed tea smells sweet. The colour is a lovely red. It tastes great, too; simultaneously warming and refreshing, and, well, like bergamot. It's powerf...

Jul. 26th, 2017

The commercial description of this tea is pretty grandiose...it makes it sound like a masterpiece of blending, and I would say it's not.

To me, this is a classic but somewhat run-of-the-mill blend that is enjoyable but stands out in no way. I would not describe it as complex, although it's a good bit more complex, ...

80 / 100 Aroma: 9/10 Flavor: 4/5 Value: 3/5
Jul. 26th, 2017

This is a good ripe pu-erh. I just think it may need to be brewed differently than I brew other ripe pu-erh, in order to bring out the right flavors. This is because there are two categories of notes that I detected. One was this wet, clean earth after rain set of notes. Then, there was another completely different set...

Jul. 26th, 2017

Other reviews of this tea seemed to be about the bagged variety, so I hope it's OK to create a new category.

This is the first loose leaf tea I ever tried, mostly because it's the only one I could find. It's about $10 for 7ozs. at Cost Plus.

It has a faint smell in the can. It has small leaves with flecks of go...

Earl Grey Tea from Caykur

Jul. 25th, 2017

I bought this tea because I wanted a cheap Earl Grey and I hadn't had any tea from Turkey before. This was very cheap; if I recall correctly it was under €4 for 300 grams.

However, I don't like it at all. I gave up trying to drink it after a few cups. Now, almost a year later, I'm trying it again. I still don't li...

This is truly a seamless blend, as Adagio calls it, of their Ceylon Sonata and Assam Melody teas. It stands up well to milk and sugar, but doesn't *need* it as some Irish Breakfast teas do.

Jul. 23rd, 2017

A lifelong fan of traditional black Darjeelings, I was intrigued by the idea of a Darjeeling oolong. Directions called for steeping 2 heaping teaspoons per cup, 212F/100C, 3-4 minutes. I went with 4 level teaspoons (3 grams) per 8 fluid ounces, 212F/100C, 4 minutes. I liked the fruity-floral flavor and expect that fans...

To me, this tastes like what would happen if I steeped leather and tobacco in boiling water. Needless to say, it's not the most desirable tea experience — particularly for someone like myself, who really doesn't like tobacco. This doesn't give me any strange, tingling sensation on my tongue like the smoked yerba mate...

The oversized teabags are individually sealed in mylar and smell fresh when opened. The dry tea leaves are a little more broken than I would expect from high-quality tea. The dominant aroma is of the roast and is nice, but generic.

The roast is also the dominant flavor as is normal for darker oolongs, but I am pleas...

It's my impression that this is very heavily caffeinated. I know that there's this mistaken impression that white teas contain almost no caffeine, but this just isn't true. Not only is there an article with citations here on RateTea which says that isn't true, there is an article on the Oregon State University site, wh...

This tea tends to be light on flavor, but for that, it is good. It is caffeinated but, even in that, this tea is relatively mild. I would not recommend adding anything to this tea as it will be easily overpowered. But, if you're looking for something with a nice flavor and nice aroma, and just overall pleasant, this...

I would tend to agree with the other reviews I've seen with regards to the flavor, but only because the aroma is so strong that I think the expectations for the taste are elevated. This is a great example of a tea whose smell is far greater than the flavor. That being said, the flavor is good, just not great. Furthe...

Raspberry Zinger and Black Cherry Berry have the same ingredients list, but for the flavoring (obviously), and an absence of hawthorn in this offering. Yet it doesn't taste much like a simple swap of modular components. I could pull raspberry more out of the aroma and aftertaste than the direct flavor itself. Cherry...
