I just had this tea with my lunch and was surprised to see all of the negative ratings about it. Like the description I found that it has a light taste and to me it was crisp and refreshing. It had a different flavor than most green teas I've tried and I feel like tangy was a good way to describe it, but I didn't encou...

Apr. 23rd, 2012

I'm always complaining about black teas have a strong bitter taste so I really liked that this tea was smooth and mild. I never understood how a tea could be "bready" but this tea really does smell like bread! I really enjoyed drinking it and would recommend it to anyone who thinks Black Tea is too strong.

Apr. 20th, 2012

I always enjoy a cup of black tea with no sweetener or cream, but I often find that it leaves a bitter taste in my mouth. I didn't have that problem with this tea, although it was strong. I definitely would like to add this tea to my stand-by tea list, along with Earl Grey. My only dislike is that I've heard Twining...

Apr. 18th, 2012

I normally don't like flavored tea, but this is an exception. The taste wasn't as sour as other flavored teas I've tried and it wasn't overpowering at all. Overall I enjoyed this tea and will be drinking it again.

Apr. 18th, 2012

This is not one of my favorite teas. It brewed a dark purple and had a sickly sweet candy smell. I found its flavor was much too sour and reminded me of hard sugar candy. I didn't finish my cup because I found it too overpowering.

Apr. 17th, 2012

I really enjoyed the floral scent of this tea and its taste. Its flavor was rich, smooth, and full, with an imperceptible aftertaste. It brewed a dark-amber color. This is one of the better teas I've tried from Two Leaves and Bud and I will definitely be drinking it again!

Greener Green Tea Yerba Mate from Guayaki

Style: Miscellaneous Blend – Region: Blend

70 / 100 Aroma: 6/10 Flavor: 4/5 Value: 3/5
Apr. 10th, 2012

This is the first type of Yerba Mate I've tried and I'll definitely be having it again. It had a strong grassy scent and looked like green tea, but I felt like the flavor reminded me of a favorite black without a strong aftertaste. Aside from taste and scent, I also like that this tea is organic and fair-trade.

60 / 100 Aroma: 6/10 Flavor: 3/5 Value: 3/5
Apr. 10th, 2012

Usually I don't like flavored tea, so I was surprised to find that I liked this one. The fruity taste wasn't as overbearing as most flavored teas that I've had and disliked, like Tazo Passion. While I won't be drinking this again based on personal preference, I'd recommend it to someone who wants to experiments with ...

I thought this tea was good, but slightly overpriced. To me this tea had a full flavor with a light aroma.

70 / 100 Aroma: 6/10 Flavor: 4/5 Value: 4/5
Apr. 1st, 2012

While I believe this tea to be slightly overpriced, I was impressed by how strong the tea was based off of the amount of leaf used. For the amount spent on a small box it's possible to brew a good amount of tea, so you get more for you dollar.

63 / 100 Aroma: 6/10 Flavor: 4/5 Value: 3/5
Apr. 1st, 2012

I've never had Dragon Well Tea so I wasn't sure what to expect, but I ended up enjoying it. This tea was more herby or grassy than what I'm used to, but it wasn't overbearing. I thought it was pretty smooth and it didn't leave any strange aftertastes - although it's not my favorite I would drink this tea again!

I thought this tea was smooth, light, and didn't leave a noticeable aftertaste. I enjoyed the smell of this tea, while faint it had a nice floral fragrance. This was the first Jasmine tea I've tried, and I will definitely be having more in the future!

I just had my first cup of this tulsi and was pleased by it's flavor, texture, and aroma!

Overall I thought it was sweet and light, making it enjoyable to sip and relax with. To me, the scent was slightly floral and the taste smooth and pleasing. The aftertaste was sweet at first, adopting a tolerably faint bittern...

Mar. 17th, 2012

I initially liked the flavor of this tea, but the longer I sipped it the less I found it appealing. After brewing it for about 3 minutes I found that it had a sweet taste and was light when I began drinking it. As time passed and I continued drinking it, the flavor became more and more bitter and left a heavy taste ...

Passion Filterbag from Tazo Tea

Style: Herbal Tea – Region: Blend

30 / 100 Aroma: 6/10 Flavor: 1/5 Value: 1/5
Feb. 15th, 2012

Since I usually drink straight black tea I wanted to be a little adventurous and tried Passion, but was not satisfied.

The rich red color of this tea intrigued me, but its fruity flavor was far too strong. Barely steeped for a minute, my cup was already overwhelming.

Jan. 29th, 2012

I wasn't sure what to expect as this was the first white tea that I've sampled, but I was definitely satisfied!

The first time that it was brewed it had a mild taste and a strong scent. After being brewed a second time, with the same leaves, the tea had a stronger taste but was less aromatic. I enjoyed this becaus...
