Moroccan Mint Green Tea from Dilmah

Style: Green Tea with Mint – Region: Sri Lanka / Ceylon

53 / 100 Aroma: 5/10 Flavor: 3/5 Value: 3/5
Jun. 29th, 2012

I love Dilmah, but this is probably one of my least favorite teas of theirs. It just doesn't have any punch like other mint teas do. Try their other teas, but don't expect much if you get this in a sample pack.

Jun. 29th, 2012

This tea grew on me. I got this as a sample and ended up just having to pay the shipping, so 2 oz for 3 dollars AND a 20% off coupon (which sadly has expired). The banana flavor lends itself well to the crispness of the tea and if you want something to eat shortbread cookies with, I can think of very few things that ...

Ceylon Blackwood Estate Organic Green Tea from Simpson & Vail

Style: Green Tea – Region: Uva, Sri Lanka

80 / 100 Aroma: 7/10 Flavor: 5/5 Value: 4/5
Jun. 6th, 2012

Simpson and Vail informs me that Blackwood estate is part of Idulgashinna estate, if you're familiar with that one (I am not).

This tea had a similar flavor profile to other Ceylon greens that I've had: it was similar in some ways to Chinese green teas, but with a darker character, and more vegetal, but slightly les...

May. 29th, 2012

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.

May. 16th, 2012

While this tea is a bit pricier than your average supermarket decaf black tea, it's incredible flavor is well worth the extra $$. Many supermarket decaf teas have an almost washed out flavor compared to their caffeinated counterparts, but not this delicious Ceylon decaf from Harney and Sons! I highly recommend it for...

I had this tea at a Barista outlet in Kolkata. I loved how fresh & uplifting this tea was! I have green teas regularly & thought this beats all the rest that I've ever had!

63 / 100 Aroma: 5/10 Flavor: 4/5 Value: 4/5
Mar. 26th, 2012

This tea is among the best decaffeinated pure black teas that I've tried, whether loose-leaf or from a tea bag.

Full-bodied, dark, strong but smooth and somewhat mellow. There is a vaguely keemun-like fruitiness.

I find it interesting that Novus also carries a caffeinated version of this tea, it allows me to com...

47 / 100 Aroma: 5/10 Flavor: 2/5 Value: 2/5
Mar. 9th, 2012

A friend brought me this from Europe.

Flavor is a bit dull: not much bite or kick, but a heavy, bitter aftertaste. Malty for a Ceylon. If I had to guess, I would probably have guessed that this was an Assam rather than a Ceylon. However, it wasn't particularly exciting as either.

I was also surprised to find t...

Mar. 8th, 2012

This tea is really good, if not oversteeped. I steeped it for 5 minutes and it was too bitter, but then I tried it again and I steeped it for 3 minutes, and it was perfect. I usually like strong tea, and it was strong enough. It didn't have a very distinctive aroma. I added cream and sugar.

Feb. 28th, 2012

I find it a bit strange that Novus offers both a caffeinated and decaffeinated Ceylon tea from Kenilworth estate. Usually, companies do not wish to draw attention to the difference between a caffeinated tea and its decaffeinated counterpart, as the decaf tea usually pales in comparison. But, in this case, Novus boldl...

Style: Ceylon Black Tea – Region: Ratnapura, Sri Lanka

73 / 100 Aroma: 7/10 Flavor: 4/5 Value: 4/5
Feb. 13th, 2012

This is a Ceylon whose character is somewhat in between the high-grown, lighter Ceylon black teas and the richer, maltier ones. Strong but smooth, with tones of rice, wintergreen, and malt. Very rich red-brown color.

Although this tea is initially quite smooth, the aftertaste is rather tannic: bitter and astringen...

The first time I made this tea, I brewed it too long (5 minutes) and it was really strong, and too bitter, but when I brewed it for 3 minutes, it was just right. I often like my tea really strong and I have to brew it for a long time. This tea is good. It tastes a lot like other Ceylon teas I've tried, which I usually ...

Jan. 2nd, 2012

Another very good black tea from Upton Tea Imports, above-average for Upton's Ceylons, which I tend to like less than their Indian black teas. Middle-of-the-road black tea character, but very well-executed.

This tea is broken into small, wiry pieces of already small leaf, which unfurl upon brewing. Brewed as instr...

I didn't like this tea. My son, my little tea tasting buddy, also disliked it. However, it is what it says it is - a smooth cream tea, so I cannot rate it badly. Just completely not my preference. Very creamy and tastes convincing.

I was excited about this one from the description, and when I opened the bag, the gorgeous, strong smell enticed me. I was looking for an Adagio tea that would suit my cravings for a good Orange Spice, and also my love for Chai and spicy teas.

Sadly the tea was much milder than the scent. Without sugar it was basic...

Adagio has an awesome website and their teas are competitively priced. Alas, their flavored teas just don't float my boat. "Chemically" is how I'd describe both the vanilla and the other flavors I've tried. They're a popular brand, so maybe it's just me.

This tea is yet another amazing find for me of a tea offering truly exceptional value. After being seriously impressed with Ahmad Tea's Kalami Assam, I decided to check out this tea, an even larger-leaf black tea that was only very slightly higher in price.

The dry leaf is huge, among the largest I have seen of any...

A classic Ceylon. Aroma of the dry leaf is fruity, but this doesn't come through in the brewed cup.

Brews a dark but surprisingly clear cup. Earthy, with savory qualities. Aroma suggests potato and wintergreen, a hint of malt and cocoa. Astringent finish. Not the smoothest tea, and particularly, with more astri...

I highly prefer this tea over the cheaper black teas available. The long leaf tea used here really shines through and provides a smoothly balanced flavor complex. Slight floral notes add to the overall experience, providing a lovely cup of tea.

Longer brewing may yield a more bitter end to the cup, but even so, it...

Taking garbage out of a plastic can and putting it into a golden can doesn't increase the value of the garbage. Lipton's attempt at polishing trash isn't fooling anyone.

I have enjoyed the loose leaf version of this tea for some time, and the tea bag version holds up well at transmitting the flavor, aroma and quality in a convenient form. I miss seeing the teas unfurl, and the color brew up but it is still very satisfying. I wish this tea was more widely available in the US. It is read...
