Picture of Osmanthus Green Oolong

Osmanthus Green Oolong from Music City Tea

Style: Osmanthus Tea – Region: ?????

87 / 100 Aroma: 8/10 Flavor: 4/5 Value: 5/5
Jan. 11th, 2017

This is a very nice pure tea. The osmanthus flowers are a nice complement, but it's the oolong tea that shines. Heads up: the tea expands a *lot* in water, so use a smaller scoop than normal --- maybe a half size? Also, it resteeps very well.

Jan. 8th, 2017

This is an excellent floral-flavored green tea. The flavors blend beautifully and smoothly. For my second cup, I added a bit of honey, which managed to enhance the flavor without dominating it. Wonderfully sweet!

If you like floral teas (such as jasmine green teas), this is definitely one to try. Lavender and rose a...

Black Ginger Tea from Music City Tea

Style: Flavored Black Tea – Region: ?????

73 / 100 Aroma: 6/10 Flavor: 4/5 Value: 5/5
Jan. 7th, 2017

This is a solid black tea. People who enjoy lightly flavored, high quality black teas should like this one. The ginger is quite subtle -- the tea aroma and flavor dominate -- but the ginger came through more for the second cup. The tea makes multiple infusions quite nicely.

Jan. 4th, 2017

I *really* love this tea. It's rare I find a flavored white tea that I enjoy, but this one is simply great. The tea is smooth and soothing, the peach flavor tastes natural and nuanced, and they blend together seamlessly. The leaves are high quality, too.

I tried this tea and several others in the store before I boug...

The flavor is robust for the first cup and it infuses quickly. It's quite pleasant in holiday fashion, though not my favorite flavor. There is both spiciness and sweetness to it.

This is a lovely, robust tea with a pleasant sweetness. It would make a solid substitute for coffee lovers with a moderate sweet tooth. I could see myself drinking this very regularly.

Nov. 6th, 2016

This is a very good tea. The teabag has fannings that infuse very quickly. The aroma and the lingering flavor have the ginger/turmeric spiciness -- which is wakening yet soothing. This makes a particularly good drink for a brisk fall day. Though the second steep takes longer, it's also very good --better than many tea ...

Mmmmmm, now this is tea! If this was available loose leaf, it'd be perfect. The smell is delicious and the flavor is perfect -- a lovely balance between the spices and the rooibos. It's good on its own, but a cup of this is amazing with just a pinch or two of stevia added. It adds a smooth sweetness without overpowerin...

Wild Berries from Twinings

Style: Fruit (Herbal) Tea – Region: Blend

73 / 100 Aroma: 7/10 Flavor: 4/5 Value: 3/5
Oct. 19th, 2016

This solidly fruity, moderately robust tea isn't bitter or overly tart and has a pleasant juiciness. It's very inexpensive, so if you like fruit teas at all it's worth a shot. Like other Twinings tea bags, it infuses quickly but is good for only one cup. Overall, I like it, but it'd be much better if done loose leaf --...

Oct. 10th, 2016

This isn't the strongest or brightest peppermint tea, but it is real smooth and it hits the spot. No bitterness is detectable. I like peppermint far more than spearmint, so I was happy to see this in my sister's cupboard when visiting her. I'm currently in the middle of gestational diabetes, so I'm just excited to be a...

Sep. 9th, 2016

This tea is unique and delicious when you're in the mood for something robust and fruity with a spicy kick. The tea pieces are pretty small (but not dust), so it infuses quickly. I steeped this for several minutes and it didn't turn bitter at all, which is excellent.

I really like this tea.

Jun. 23rd, 2016

Berries and hibiscus tea go together so well. The bold, tart flavor is delicious, and the fruit cuts what might otherwise be sour by adding more flavor and sweetness. This is a very well balanced herbal tea, in my opinion. I've only tried this tea hot so far, but it sounds perfect for chilled teas too. My only complain...

Mar. 24th, 2016

This was surprisingly good. The flavor had a nice soothing aroma and taste in a "ah, this is the kind of food adults like" sort of way. It strikes me as a particularly good tea for certain brisk days.

The fact that I like it and that I got a decent size bag of loose leaf for about two and a half dollars makes it one...

Jan. 29th, 2016

I found packs of these in the house we moved into. The ginger is definitely most notable in the aroma before it's brewed, but I still taste it in the drink. It's flavor is strong but not potent, and very blended. No individual flavor really stands out. It has a rather creamy feel.

I don't know how effective probioti...

As someone very into fruity teas, I love this one. It's noticeably tart in a solidly pleasant way. Great when I'm in the mood for a strong caffeine free tea. If you like tropical herbal teas, this one is worth a shot.

Not bad for bagged Earl Grey. I added half and half, which mixed well. The flavor was solid without being bitter. Others commented that it IS better, so maybe the half and half I added helped with that?

This is a green tea with various herbs and spices added. In my mind teas supposed to be medicinal taste cluttered. The flavor isn't bad (lightly of vanilla and sweetish herbs), but it isn't for me. I tried this one because it was sent as a free sample.

Nov. 24th, 2015

This tea wasn't the worst, but it wasn't really for me. The aroma was better than the flavor. It's possible I over-steeped it, as it went a bit bitter in a distinctively green tea fashion. Basically, I like the idea of this tea better than its execution.

As others have noted, clove and pepper come through in this tea. Cinnamon and other flavors are subtle. I added sugar and milk and really liked it. In short, as a bagged tea this one is pretty solid.

Meh. It's not a badly done tea, but it's not a flavor I'm often into. The orange and herbaceousness both come through. Not bad if that's a taste mixture that appeals to you, but orange isn't my favorite fruit to drink hot. Still, the cup has grown on me a bit while I've been drinking it.

I'm not big on genmaichas, but the light baked rice flavor in this one is comforting. It's nice when I'm in the mood for something savory, but not bitter. No spiciness or sweetness, the flavor is uncomplicated in a way that's nice sometimes.

This tea is a great idea, but the execution needs to be better. Not that much flavor infused even in the first cup, but what I could taste and small was delightful and Christmasy. I bet I'd love the loose leaf version, but the bag version just isn't as amazing as it could be. *sigh*

Overpriced, but quite tasty. I'm enjoying this more than I do many flavored white teas. I can detect the tea without a problem, in contrast to the previous reviewers who felt the fruitiness to be overpowering. It held up to a second steeping well, though dust collected at the bottom of the cup.

This herbal tea is pretty good. I detect a little bitterness, but the vanilla helps. It's a pretty smooth drink, and it made two decent cups. People who really like chamomile will likely enjoy this one.
