57 / 100 Aroma: 5/10 Flavor: 3/5 Value: 3/5
Oct. 19th, 2012

So after learning that lemon can fight against cold sores (which I get on occasion) I thought I'd give lemon tea a try.. and I actually liked this one!

This has definitely become one of my basic go-to teas, alongside my usual Earl Grey... I really liked that the lemon flavoring was strong, but not overwhelming! I'...

I really liked this tea - for its price it is really a steal! I was suprised to find out that this tea is less expensive than Lipton, it definitely gives you more - I would definitely choose this as a staple basic tea to have around the house.

Black Saffron from Hampstead Tea

Style: Flavored Black Tea – Region: Blend

63 / 100 Aroma: 6/10 Flavor: 4/5 Value: 3/5
Oct. 6th, 2012

I liked this tea. I thought it was pretty typical for a black tea, but sometimes that is all I need. It had a subtle flavor and the texture was really smooth. The price seems pretty reasonable to me. This is the first time I had Hampstead Tea, and after having this tea, I would buy from them again.

Sep. 7th, 2012

I liked this tea a lot. It had a subtle flavor and was really smooth. I thought the tea smelled a little like cooked greens, which I like, so I had no problem with that. I probably wouldn't pay the price, but I can see why others would, it's a high quality tea.

I really liked this tea. It was strong compared to most oolongs that I've had. I was able to brew more than one cup from the same leaves with them remaining flavorful.

I've been drinking this tea for the past two days, and really like it. It has a nice, light, spicy aroma, and a equally light and pleasant flavor. I thought this tea was refreshing and agree that it feels uplifting as well. I will definitely be drinking this again!

I loved the smell of this tea - jasmine has to be one of my favorite scents! I thought this tea was refreshing, but this wouldn't be my go-to Jasmine Green, I've had some that I've liked better.

Victorian Earl Grey Black Tea from Celestial Seasonings

73 / 100 Aroma: 5/10 Flavor: 5/5 Value: 4/5
Jul. 16th, 2012

It's too bad that this tea might be discontinued! While I wasn't that impressed with the aroma I really enjoyed the full rich flavor of the bergamot, richer than most Earl Grey I've tried in the past! I would definitely recommend this tea to anyone who is looking for a bagged Earl Grey.

English Breakfast Tea from Tetley Tea

53 / 100 Aroma: 5/10 Flavor: 3/5 Value: 3/5
Jul. 13th, 2012

This was a simple black tea, no bells and whistles. I thought it was good, but I didn't find the flavor as robust as the description suggests. I'd recommend another brand, such as Bigelow, for a more full-bodied, bagged, English Breakfast tea.

67 / 100 Aroma: 8/10 Flavor: 3/5 Value: 3/5
Jul. 13th, 2012

One of my favorite things about Earl Grey is its aroma and the dried leaf of this tea delivered with a strong smell of bergamot. Unfortunately, the scent was deceiving, as the smell was lost after steeping and the flavor was too mild for my taste. While I liked the aroma of this tea, I'd rather stick with Celestial S...

Jul. 10th, 2012

I don't usually like fruity teas, but this was an exception, especially because of it's subtle flavor. I'd advise anyone who wants a strong fruity tea to steer clear, but for those like me who usually find them too strong, I'd fully recommend it.

I really liked the smell of this tea, the spices were strong, especially the cloves. Unfortunately, the taste didn't match. I thought the tea itself was flavorless in comparison to it's rich aroma.

Normally I don't have tea with my breakfast, but I decided to try it out with a cup of Ten Ren White Tea this morning. It had a mild and smooth taste, with only a slight hint of bitterness after drinking. While I normally prefer water I juice in the morning, I thought this tea was refreshing and would have it with bre...

I was a little hesitant trying this, because I've never had chai before, but I was really happy with it! The flavor really was delicious, I especially enjoyed the taste of the vanilla, and the texture was smooth, leaving a soft aftertaste on my lips. I will definitely be having this again in the future!

Aside from this tea smelling like cough syrup, I thought it was pleasant. While the taste was sweet, it was not overwhelming, and I actually liked the fruity flavor (I'm not usually a fruity tea fan!). I'm also of course a big fan of this tea being organic. Overall I liked this tea, I just wish it smelled a little ni...

I thought the tea had a light aroma, contrast to other reviews, but I could definitely smell the lemon grass. I really enjoyed this tea. It had a smooth texture with a hint of lemon grass in it's flavoring. This is definitely my favorite tea by Two Leaves in A Bud, it's silky aftertaste is leaving me begging for mor...

I really enjoyed the smell of the dry leaf of this tea, although any aroma was lost after brewing. I thought the flavor was good and I didn't think it was as bitter as other brands I've had, such as Two Leaves and A Bud. I'm also a big fan of this tea being organic and fair trade.

I've never liked flavored teas, especially ones that taste like candy, such as this. I thought this tea was too sweet and could only drink part of my cup.

I always love the smell of bergamot in Earl Grey and the dried leaf of this tea does not fail to deliver, although most of the aroma was lost after brewing. The additional malva flowers gave no new taste to me. Overall I thought this was a good, strong, Earl Grey, but nothing too exotic like the description suggests!...

This was a strong full-bodied black tea. It didn't have much of an aroma, but I liked its taste. Overall I'd drink it again but it won't be my staple black tea.

This is the best green tea that I've had yet, and possibly my favorite tea! Paired with lunch on a hot day, I was extremely satisfied by its taste! It was refreshing and smooth, and had no bitterness whatsoever ( which is one of my usual complaints with tea). While it is a little pricey, I feel like this tea is wort...
