Vanilla Creme Earl Grey from California Tea House

Style: Earl Grey Cream – Region: Blend

33 / 100 Aroma: 4/10 Flavor: 1/5 Value: 2/5
Apr. 29th, 2010

appearance: a standard looking black tea with bits of blue and white plant matter mixed in ["we added bits of vanilla bean and sunflower petals"].

Organic Lapsang Souchong from California Tea House

Style: Lapsang Souchong – Region: Wuyi, Fujian, China

67 / 100 Aroma: 7/10 Flavor: 4/5 Value: 3/5
Apr. 29th, 2010

very powerful in both flavor and aroma. a very smokey smell. many people i've offered it to told me it smells like a camp fire. i definitely smell the terpenes (chemicals from the pine wood).

i am a big fan of this tea, but it is definitely not for everyone. ...

Just for Kids Organic Throat Coat® from Traditional Medicinals

Style: Wellness Tea / Medicinal Tea – Region: Blend

40 / 100 Aroma: 4/10 Flavor: 2/5 Value: 3/5
Apr. 28th, 2010

Throat Coat® from Traditional Medicinals

Style: Wellness Tea / Medicinal Tea – Region: Blend

87 / 100 Aroma: 9/10 Flavor: 4/5 Value: 4/5
Apr. 28th, 2010

i'll start by saying that i drink this 'tea' simply because i love the flavor. i'm not reviewing this to vouch for its efficacy in the treatment of any condition.

i'll continue by saying that everyone, with the exception of one or two people, that i've given a cup of this to did not care for it flavor-wise.
