I like this tea. It has a mild flavor, not quite as strong as I sometimes like tea, but still really good. I added cream and sugar.

Chocolate Chai from Adagio Teas

67 / 100 Aroma: 7/10 Flavor: 3/5 Value: 3/5
Apr. 12th, 2013

This chai is not bad but it is also not very overwhelming. I was hoping for more of a rich spicy chai with a chocolate zing but it was mainly a mild chai with more chocolate aroma than taste.

This just might be my new favorite from Adagio! Wonderfully floral and fruity with just a slight tart taste...just like guanabana fruit. It tastes good black or with a bit of sugar and milk.

The tea leaves smell very chocolaty but sadly I felt like the tea just tasted burnt. Also tastes a bit bitter like dark chocolate which I liked and felt complimented the tea taste. Wish it did not have the burnt taste or it would be a favorite!

Premium Leaf Tea from Dilmah

70 / 100 Aroma: 7/10 Flavor: 3/5 Value: 4/5
Mar. 9th, 2013

Dilmah, in their marketing, make a lot of noise about the freshness of their teas due to packaging within days of picking, and with their standard "Premium" offering it really does have a freshness distinct from most of the other big producers. The Premium in truth is an Orange Pekoe and exhibits that wonder deep orang...

Ceylon Breakfast Black Tea from Wegmans

67 / 100 Aroma: 6/10 Flavor: 3/5 Value: 4/5
Mar. 4th, 2013

I thought this tea was pretty good, not anything spectacular, but definitely a good, regular, black. I thought the dried leaf smelled better than the brewed tea. Overall, I thought it was a good buy for its price. I'm looking forward to trying what else Wegmans has to offer.

70 / 100 Aroma: 7/10 Flavor: 4/5 Value: 4/5
Feb. 27th, 2013

Dry leaf is unimpressive looking, relatively small broken pieces of orthodox black tea, but to me it has the most pleasing aroma of all of Wegmans offerings of pure black teas. Unfortunately, the brewed cup did not taste quite as amazing as the dry leaf smelled.

Upon brewing (4 minutes as recommended), produces a r...

Ceylon Kenilworth OP-1 from Teavana

70 / 100 Aroma: 6/10 Flavor: 4/5 Value: 3/5
Feb. 22nd, 2013

This is a nice traditional black tea. It tastes a lot like your standard black tea from a tea bag, but better. This tea is full bodied with medium tannin, a medium malty flavor, and only slightly astringent. This tea is good for a minimum of 2 steeps. This really could be an everyday tea for a lot of people. I find thi...

Yet another outstanding black tea from Arbor Teas! My initial reaction of "this is another good black tea, not the best, but really good" changed about 3/4 of the way through my cup! While this tea didn't pack as much of a punch as the Assam Black, I loved the subtle and smooth flavor and fully appreciated the velvet...

This tea has a sweet aroma. It reminded me of olives at one point. I really like the flavor. It's full, rich, and interesting. I added cream and sugar.

Jan. 16th, 2013

It would have been easy for me to overlook this tea if I had only brewed it once. Smooth and light, this tea has a classic high-grown character. But it took multiple steepings and some experimentation to discover how good this tea was at producing multiple cups. Among the best at making multiple infusions of any bla...

I love this tea. It has a rich, full, smooth flavor, but at the same time clean and not too heavy. I steep it for 6-8 minutes and drink it with milk and sugar.

60 / 100 Aroma: 4/10 Flavor: 4/5 Value: 4/5
Jan. 11th, 2013

A dark-colored green tea with a brisk character, reminiscent of gunpowder or chun mee. Produces a bold cup that is more flavorful than aromatic.

Aroma is mild and herbaceous, a little dusty and suggestive of smokiness, and flavor is quite sour and a little sharp. Has a strong cooling quality. If it were summer, I...

I tried a sample of this tea and liked the taste, which was stronger than most basic blacks I've had. I really appreciate the reasonable prices of Ahmad Teas, and plan to be buying and sampling more from them soon.

My favorite pure black tea from Ahmad Tea, and my favorite tea from any company in this price range.

If I had to pick a single example of a classic black tea, I would pick this one.

Like most of Ahmad's teas, I find this one offers exceptional value: solid quality at a very low price. It is versatile and easy to...

This Ceylon is full of flavor. It is an excellent value for the money and I could happily drink this daily. In fact, I plan on ordering a pound of the damn stuff next time around. This tea makes me grin!

Toasted Sesame from Adagio Teas

43 / 100 Aroma: 3/10 Flavor: 2/5 Value: 4/5
Dec. 2nd, 2012

The aroma of the leaves and the tea itself are very bland, no toasted sesame at all just a vague burnt smell.

Sadly I found this tea disappointing, it tastes like a decent black tea but there is not sesame taste except for a vague burnt taste. I was hoping for a bold sesame taste but did not get that.

This tea is pretty good. It has just the right amount of bergamot for me (which may be less than most Earl Grey enthusiasts like). I added cream and sugar.

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...

I found this tea underwhelming. It's not bad, but usually when someone puts a flavor on a bad, you expect a flavor in the tea. This pretty much tastes like the dilmah green ceylon with a hint of lemongrass, maybe, if you can find it.

I feel like this tea is both unique and versatile, which is ultimately why I put people should buy it. The tea is more scented like caramel and goes well with milk and sugar (despite the suggestions of the company), but is good naked as well. I think the ultimate strength is its ability to mix well with other fruit f...
