So I'm already biased because I went into this tea knowing I wouldn't be a fan... plus I'm kind of reviewing this weeks after I had it so my memory is a bit foggy. But it just didn't stand out to me... it is an interesting tea that seems to taste different with every sip- but the flavors are mostly citrus and fruit whi...

Emperor's Puerh - Black Tea from Numi Organic Tea

Style: Pu-erh Tea – Region: Yunnan, China

60 / 100 Aroma: 4/10 Flavor: 4/5 Value: 3/5
Feb. 25th, 2010

I actually kind of like this tea. I agree that it smells weird when you first brew it (if that's meant to be 'malty'...) however it tastes pretty smooth and is overall a satisfying puerh for a box brand you can get in any supermarket.

Joyeux Noel from Lupicia

Style: Flavored Black Tea – Region: Blend

70 / 100 Aroma: 5/10 Flavor: 5/5 Value: 4/5
Jan. 5th, 2010

Incredibly strange tea, but I loved every moment of it! It tastes just like roasted chestnuts, and not even in the fake syrupy way- it's a clean flavour with no sour aftertaste.
The smell however is different, almost unpleasant to me- it's sort of sickly sweet? Especially if you just smell the tea bag. But thankfully...

Pouchong Tea from Ten Ren Tea

Style: Pouchong Tea – Region: ?????

53 / 100 Aroma: 4/10 Flavor: 3/5 Value: 4/5
Sep. 23rd, 2009

To be fair I'm just not that into Pouchong tea... the melon-esque taste just doesn't do it for me. (I tend to refer to it as The Lamer Chinese Restaurant Tea in comparison to Pu-Erh.)
I found that TenRen's version leans to the slightly bitter side as well. Overall just an OK tea... it's nice, but not exciting.

Zen Filterbags from Tazo Tea

Style: Flavored Green Tea – Region: ?????

57 / 100 Aroma: 7/10 Flavor: 3/5 Value: 2/5
Sep. 23rd, 2009

The first time I had this tea I absolutely loved it. It's a great minty yet subtle fruity mix that smelled fantastic and tasted pretty good.
Yet, over the years this tea hasn't really held up for me... it's pretty expensive for one, it's tough to brew it without it going bitter, and I just eventually grew tired of th...

Pu-Erh Whole Leaf from Ten Ren Tea

Style: Pu-erh Tea – Region: ?????

83 / 100 Aroma: 7/10 Flavor: 5/5 Value: 4/5
Sep. 23rd, 2009

I really adore Pu-Erh tea and this is one of the most fantastic brands I've found in teabag form. It has a dark, rich colour and a smooth flavor- never gets bitter, effective but not overdone caffeine. Cheap enough to keep coming back to. Overall a solid choice.

Vanilla Caramel Black Tea from Bigelow Tea

47 / 100 Aroma: 7/10 Flavor: 2/5 Value: 2/5
Sep. 22nd, 2009

This tea sounded so fantastic to me I just had to try it, and predictably it was a bit of a let down. (To be fair- I might have been expecting it to taste more like vanilla caramel coffee...)
It smells and sounds fantastic, but the taste is lack luster and forgettable. There are much better flavored teas out there to...

British Blend - Premium Black Tea from Tetley Tea

Style: Black Tea – Region: Blend

80 / 100 Aroma: 5/10 Flavor: 4/5 Value: 5/5
Sep. 22nd, 2009

Tetley is one of the best basic black teas out there. Unlike American brands of black teas, it never gets bitter and is enjoyable with or without milk. The caffeine is also strong enough to replace coffee, but unlike coffee it doesn't hype you up for a crash (well maybe if you drink enough cups).
While it may not be ...
