I'm a Jasmine tea nut and always searching for good varieties. This tea was a great discovery...delicately fragrant with a lovely flavor. I highly recommend it.

Cholesterid (Yunnan Tuocha) from Triple Leaf Tea

Style: Wellness Tea / Medicinal Tea – Region: Yunnan, China

70 / 100 Aroma: 6/10 Flavor: 4/5 Value: 4/5
Dec. 11th, 2009

The benefits of this tea are well-established. This tea is not the most exotic in terms of its aroma, and its slightly musty flavor is an acquired taste. The favor is inferior to an oolong tea in my opinion, but the healthful effects offset this disadvantage. A convenient tea to brew where loose tea is not available...

Lungching Green Tea from Foojoy

Style: Dragon Well (Long Jing) – Region: China

67 / 100 Aroma: 6/10 Flavor: 3/5 Value: 5/5
Dec. 8th, 2009

While this pales in comparison to loose dragon well teas that I've tried, it's definitely true to the style. The low price and simple packaging of the teabags are deceptive...this tea retains a lot of complexity. It brews a rich golden color and is quite aromatic. If you let it brew a long time, it acquires some ast...

Chinese Oolong from Bigelow Tea

Style: Oolong Tea – Region: China

40 / 100 Aroma: 4/10 Flavor: 2/5 Value: 2/5
Dec. 8th, 2009

A darker oolong, somewhat nondescript. No objectionable qualities but overall weak and not very interesting. Not much of the complexity that I expect. I think this one lags behind the quality of Bigelow's flavored teas.

In tea bags of a similar price range, I think Ten Ren offers better oolongs, and they have sev...

Lichee Black Tea from Foojoy

Style: Lychee Black Tea – Region: China

77 / 100 Aroma: 7/10 Flavor: 4/5 Value: 5/5
Dec. 6th, 2009

Foojoy teas are very nicely priced and always tasty. This tea has a strong lichee (lychee) sweet scent and flavor to it, and the black tea can be very bitter if steeped too long. I recommend pulling the teabag out before you think you need to, just to see if it has reached the right level of flavor for you. I prefer th...

Dec. 5th, 2009

This is my favorite tea. I haven't found a green jasmine that I like better. However the $13.00 price tag is too expensive for me at the moment...so I must resist temptation. The aroma is more present than others I've tried and I know it's quality as I can drink it first thing in the morning without it making my sto...

60 / 100 Aroma: 2/10 Flavor: 4/5 Value: 5/5
Dec. 4th, 2009

While not the most gourmet of teas, this tea is very easy to find at most grocery stores and Starbucks in metropolitan US areas.

Overall it has a good flavor, moderate in intensity, and rarely comes out bitter.

I like to brew this is very warm, but not hot water, for about 2.5-3 minutes.

Dec. 4th, 2009

This is one of my favorites for dinner. I brew it lightly, if it's brewed too strongly you don't get all the flavors. Probably one of the best, mass produced american teas. Hard to find in most stores, comes in both teabag variety and loose leaf. I prefer the loose leaf.

Terrible. The aroma as you start to sip is reminiscent of body odor. The flavor, if you can get past the smell, hints at dirt. Not good at all. I gave the rest of the box away.

63 / 100 Aroma: 6/10 Flavor: 4/5 Value: 3/5
Nov. 28th, 2009

Complex aroma, less floral than most Jasmines and than I had expected. I liked this tea but I'm not sure I perceived it the same way it is described...it tasted a little bit peppery to me...the base tea reminded me somewhat of a white peony and somewhat of a pouchong. This tea is gentle if you brew it briefly but can...

White Peony (Bai Mu Dan) from Two Leaves and a Bud

Style: White Peony Tea – Region: Fujian, China

70 / 100 Aroma: 8/10 Flavor: 4/5 Value: 3/5
Nov. 28th, 2009

A rich, full-bodied tea, brews a dark orange color and is fairly bitter. The aroma is fairly complex. There are some pleasant vegetal tones too. Pleasant aftertaste too.

I really like this tea; it's one of the few white peony teas that I've tried that has been bold and full-bodied enough for me. It's almost a li...

Nov. 9th, 2009

As with Foojoy's China Black Tea, I found this a surprisingly good value. The black tea was wrapped in individual paper packets, whereas the Lunching box has several aluminum sealed packets containing individual bags. This tea has a pleasant aroma and a decent flavor. It compares favorably to many other green teas sol...

Nov. 3rd, 2009

Wow. I love the aroma of this tea...it is much more vegetal than most black teas, clean and fresh, and yet warm too. Smooth and yet relatively full-bodied, but thin relative to some breakfast teas. No astringency.

I do notice the peppery tones characteristic of a dian hong. The aroma is pleasingly complex. Ther...

Oct. 27th, 2009

Aroma very complex with a lot of things going on. The dark leaves surprisingly brew a light amber liquor that is very clear. Initially a strong fruity aroma like dried apricot, some vegetal tones. Upon drinking, a bit peppery. Very smooth and clean. No bitterness, rather sweet, but with some astringency. A bit th...

53 / 100 Aroma: 5/10 Flavor: 3/5 Value: 4/5
Oct. 20th, 2009

This is not my favorite loose-leaf ripened pu-erh. It's palatable and noticeably better than random ones I've sampled. The aroma is dusty, not terribly rich or complex. Pretty smooth flavor. Enjoyable. I prefer ZH26.

And of course, I really strongly prefer Sheng Pu-erh. I do not think Pu-erh is Upton's strong ...

Oct. 20th, 2009

Perhaps I'm not a "discerning pu-erh enthusiast" but I failed to appreciate this one any more than Upton's basic loose pu-erh, and it's about twice the price. The aroma is somehow lighter and less rich and earthy. It does have a clean aftertaste as described, but it's less intensely aromatic. I prefer ZH26 and altho...

Oct. 20th, 2009

I find this pu-erh to have a richer and warmer earthy aroma as compared to both ZH20 and ZH65. Very smooth but with some nice complexity. While you can make multiple infusions with this tea, later infusions lose some of the complexity...I usually make only one very long infusion.

In the end though? I don't really...

I love oolong tea and wanted to find an economical choice, but I won't be buying this again. It had none of the delicacy or mystery I associate with oolong, though it did have a nice tannic kick.

Oct. 14th, 2009

Deep reddish brown color, and very clear. More delicate than typical for a Shou Mei, but still fairly rich and full. Very smooth flavor; no bitterness, and a clean, cool aftertaste.

Unlike Upton's other Shou Mei's for which I found the brewing instructions to be right on, this one I like to brew differently. I br...

Oct. 14th, 2009

Brownish leaves with some silvery and green mixed in. Light aroma of fall leaves and honey with some vegetal tones. Some astringency and a noticeably unpleasant sourness, although no bitterness.

Of Upton's 3 Shou Mei teas of similar price (see ZW62, ZW23), this is the one I like least. This one is much more simil...

Of Upton three Shou Mei's of similar price, this is my favorite. Leaves greener as Shou Mei goes. Aroma is fresh, clean and vegetal, perhaps even a bit grassy. Very rich aroma; this is the most aromatic of any Shou Mei that I've sampled. Less sweet than most white teas. My only complaint is a fair amount of astrin...

Oct. 13th, 2009

This is one of the naturally sweetest teas I have ever tried, with an aroma of cinnamon, honey, caramel, and autumn leaves. Rich, warm, and very gentle. Absolutely no bitterness whatsoever...just a hint of astringency in the aftertaste.

This is one of 3 of Upton's Shou Mei teas of very similar price and I want to ...
