Apr. 30th, 2010

this is alright as earl greys go, but certainly not excellent. the bergamot was not as strong as i like it. smooth.

kind of expensive. there are better earl greys out there... my favorite is zhena's gypsy - uplifting earl grey. earl grey supreme by rishi is also good.

India Breakfast Tulsi Tea from Organic India

Style: Flavored Black Tea – Region: India

70 / 100 Aroma: 6/10 Flavor: 4/5 Value: 4/5
Apr. 29th, 2010

This tea is smooth and balanced and the way it makes you feel is smooth and balanced as well. It's a bit like a masal chai/spiced tea since the tulsi imparts clove and other spicy aromas. The tulsi is strong enough that I can't really say all that much about the quality of the tea, but whatever tea is used blends wel...

A good way to get caffeine and apparently help allergies at the same time!

47 / 100 Aroma: 4/10 Flavor: 3/5 Value: 3/5
Apr. 16th, 2010

Fruity, even for a Darjeeling, and mellow, except for some very strong objectionable qualities that emerge. There's a harshness in the aroma that I could do without...the aftertaste is also very tannic even though at first this tea tastes smooth. Astringent for a Darjeeling.

Disappointing. Definitely recognizable...

Apr. 2nd, 2010

Aroma is rice-like, and very slightly malty, with a slight hint of smokiness, and somewhat fruity. Most of these qualities are very subtle. It's hard to say whether the aroma is balanced or muddled...it somehow straddles these two possibilities. I am not crazy about how the different aspects of the aroma blend toget...

Berry Black™ - Raspberry Darjeeling Black Tea from Numi Organic Tea

70 / 100 Aroma: 7/10 Flavor: 3/5 Value: 4/5
Mar. 25th, 2010

Certainly one of the better bagged teas I've tried and one I really enjoyed.

The fruit taste can get a little strong if the tea is steeped more than about 4 minutes, i've found that 3-4 minutes with hotter water is just about perfect.

Nice aroma, and well balanced, the fruit does not overpower the darjeeling fl...

This is a very calming tea. Much more effective than chamomile. Over the years, this has become my favorite tea. Ever.

Mar. 10th, 2010

This tea's complexity surprised me! Unusually vegetal for a black tea, with a hint of savory qualities. Dark in color, and full-bodied, but delicate. Fairly bitter, especially in the aftertaste...moderately tannic and astringent.

The aroma of this tea would place it on par with some of the better single-estate Da...

Style: Assam – Region: Assam, India

60 / 100 Aroma: 4/10 Flavor: 4/5 Value: 4/5
Mar. 9th, 2010

My favorite of the low priced Assam from special tea's. Very rich in flavor,though if you are a lover of malty Assam you will find this tea to be lacking a truly strong malty-ness. If you are like me then I suggest Yamamotoyama's orange pekoe.

Overall a good tea.

Note:
I am reviewing the Mangalam FBOP

not a typical malty assam, smooth and mild. Aroma and flavor are lacking, but for the price a great bargain.

Feb. 6th, 2010

This seemingly straightforward Darjeeling has quickly become one of my favorite everyday teas. Although "typical" in many respects, it is surprisingly complex...the aroma has many different aspects to it: a fruitiness, a hint of a rice-like quality, some floral tones, a bit of spice, a suggestion of fall leaves, and s...

Ahmad is one of my favourite tea brands. It has never let me down. Their Darjeeling is no exception; difficult as it is to brew a perfect Darjeeling, they have found the right proportion for a cup.

Bombay Chai from Tea Forte

43 / 100 Aroma: 5/10 Flavor: 3/5 Value: 2/5
Jan. 29th, 2010

A smooth, gentle chai with a tangy aftertaste. Aroma sweet, spicey, and malty. Clove and cinnamon are particularly noticeable in the aroma; spice dominates and the tea is less noticeable. I'm not sure where the tea is from but the tea seems more like an Assam than like any other Indian teas. There's a bit of a meta...

Jan. 13th, 2010

Very different from the purple-leaf variety, which I like better.

This has a very strong metallic character in the taste, and the aroma suggests a metallic character too. The aroma is more similar to the purple variety, perhaps less of a cinnamon character and more clove.

I've also tried the green-leafed Tulsi f...

77 / 100 Aroma: 7/10 Flavor: 5/5 Value: 4/5
Jan. 8th, 2010

Very green character, even more than typical for a first-flush, both in the appearance of the leaves and the aroma. The cup is a deep amber color. The aroma is light and mostly floral, almost reminiscent of queen Anne's lace blossoms. On my second brewing I did detect a faint suggestion of spearmint in the aroma, an...

63 / 100 Aroma: 6/10 Flavor: 2/5 Value: 3/5
Jan. 5th, 2010

Disappointing for a first flush and even among broken-leaf Darjeelings. There's a heaviness to the flavor, even though it is smooth. I'm detecting neither the "fresh floral note" nor the "hint of citrus".

I'm not sure what to recommend with the brewing; if you go longer this tea becomes heavy, although not too bit...

A bold and powerful tea but with some complexity. Fine broken leaf. Infuses quickly...I recommend one and a half minutes, and using less than a teaspoon of leaves. However, if you enjoy a stronger cup, this tea does not get as astringent as you might expect if you brew it longer.

Aroma malty, slightly more vegeta...

Dec. 30th, 2009

Like the other teas I've tried from Fresh Darjeeling Tea, this tea is completely unlike anything I've ever tried! It is also the only Darjeeling oolong I've had that is rich and full-bodied.

Brews a dark color, darker than some Darjeelings I've seen classified as "black" teas. Malty, with a savory quality to it, a...
