Apricot Ceylon from Coffee Bean & Tea Leaf

Style: Fruit Black Tea – Region: Sri Lanka / Ceylon

100 / 100 Aroma: 10/10 Flavor: 5/5 Value: 5/5
Jan. 2nd, 2010

This tea is so good that I asked the ratetea.net guys to add it to their database!

It's a wonderful black tea (So, you get a pretty good caffeine hit from it.) that is made even better with just the right amount of apricot flavoring. The apricot flavoring is strong enough so that it doesn't disappear behind the Ceyl...

Lemony, tangy, almost like you added lemongrass or lemon flavoring. This was an interesting departure on one of my favorite types of green tea...it's recognizable as the style, but not in the way I expected. No smokiness, but still fresh tasting, although slightly less crisp. Much less bitter and astringent, and doe...

Dec. 13th, 2009

This is an insanely strong tea. I find the brewing instructions to be way off...following them it's undrinkable. I tried using about half as much leaf and brewing for 1 minute and it was about right. Steep it any longer and it becomes painfully astringent and also quite bitter.

When brewed briefly and with little...

Aroma strongly of wintergreen...almost unbelievable that this is just tea...it tastes almost as if wintergreen oil has been added! Outside of the surprising wintergreen aroma, this tea is dark, robust, and very full. Fairly bitter, astringent, and tannic. The rest of the aroma is typical of a Ceylon.

Like the Cey...

Currant from Adagio Teas

Style: Fruit Black Tea – Region: Sri Lanka / Ceylon

83 / 100 Aroma: 7/10 Flavor: 5/5 Value: 5/5
Dec. 7th, 2009

I don't know if I have ever actually eaten a currant, but none the less I purchased some of this tea because it sounded interesting. I was so surprised at the delicious flavor that I bought a bigger tin and shared with my friends. Very good 'berry' tea, brews up with that traditional berry aroma.

A 'solid' Ceylon, I find it better than it's fannings grade counter part used in tea bags.

Picture of Earl Grey

Earl Grey from Ten Ren Tea

Style: Earl Grey Tea – Region: Sri Lanka / Ceylon

47 / 100 Aroma: 4/10 Flavor: 3/5 Value: 3/5
Sep. 27th, 2009

I was disappointed with this one, as I was with Ten Ren's black tea. There isn't much complexity to the black tea aroma, and the bergamot is a bit too weak for me. I prefer many other brands' attempts at teabag Earl Grey to this one.
