Pear White Tea (Formerly White Pear) from Revolution Tea

Style: Fruit White Tea – Region: ?????

Sep. 27th, 2009

This was surprisingly strong for a white tea. I brewed it for 4 minutes using a little over a cup with the teabag, and it was too strong. I recommend either brewing for a shorter time or using the teabag to brew two or more cups at once. This tea is quite good for multiple infusions; the pear comes out more in later...

Sep. 27th, 2009

I find the bold, almost pungent aroma of blackcurrants quite enjoyable in this tea...it's a deep, dark sort of fruitiness that blends very well with the black tea. The tea in this blend is nondescript and is dominated by the blackcurrant, but that's ok with me! This is a peculiar fruit blend but I enjoy it very much;...

Ginger Peach Green Tea from Stash Tea

Style: Flavored Green Tea – Region: ?????

73 / 100 Aroma: 7/10 Flavor: 4/5 Value: 4/5
Sep. 27th, 2009

Initial aroma is mostly of peach if you brew this tea briefly, but as you brew it longer the ginger comes out much more strongly; the ginger aroma stays in the cup. Smooth, fresh tasting...the ginger is very noticeable, especially if you brew it for a long time. I enjoyed this one very much; it has a very different c...

Premium Black Tea - Pure Mint from Twinings

Style: Black Tea with Mint – Region: Blend

43 / 100 Aroma: 4/10 Flavor: 2/5 Value: 3/5
Sep. 27th, 2009

Strong peppermint aroma, dominating the other aromas; only a weak aroma of black tea and spearmint. An unpleasant sourness. Definitely not among my favorite black tea / mint blends.

Rose Green Tea Organic from Upton Tea Imports

Style: Rose Green Tea – Region: China

93 / 100 Aroma: 9/10 Flavor: 5/5 Value: 5/5
Sep. 21st, 2009

Whereas people often think of roses as delicate and gentle, this is a very bold tea. The aroma is fruity, dark, and rich, and less floral than one would expect. The flavor is sharp and tangy, much more bitter than the fruity aroma might suggest. This is an outstanding tea, and is available at a very reasonable price...

Mtn High Chai from Two Leaves and a Bud

Style: Chai / Spiced Tea – Region: Assam, India

50 / 100 Aroma: 5/10 Flavor: 3/5 Value: 2/5
Sep. 21st, 2009

Clove is dominant in the aroma, and cardamon is also present. Happily, this one does not overdo the cinnamon the way many American chai's do.

The tea is a mellow, smooth tea, and is overpowered by the spice, especially by the clove. I think they would have done better to use a stronger base tea.

Enjoyable, and ...

Aged Earl Grey™ - Bergamot Black from Numi Organic Tea

Style: Earl Grey Tea – Region: Assam, India

70 / 100 Aroma: 7/10 Flavor: 3/5 Value: 4/5
Sep. 20th, 2009

This is my favorite Earl Grey that I've ever had from teabags. It has a very bold bergamot aroma, with a clean and refreshing quality. It is much smoother than most black teas: very little astringency, while still having a rich flavor.

A bit expensive for a teabag tea, but more reasonable considering the quality a...

Earl Grey from Two Leaves and a Bud

Style: Earl Grey Tea – Region: Blend

50 / 100 Aroma: 5/10 Flavor: 3/5 Value: 2/5
Sep. 8th, 2009

I am not terribly impressed with this Earl Grey; it's very average for this style. The black tea aroma is a bit generic; there's a bit too much astringency and bitterness relative to the strength of the aroma. The bergamot aroma is also fairly mild.

Given the very high price of this tea, and the higher quality of ...

Jasmine Yin Hao from Rishi Tea

Style: Yin Hao Jasmine – Region: Hubei, China

83 / 100 Aroma: 8/10 Flavor: 5/5 Value: 4/5
Sep. 2nd, 2009

This tea is very aromatic, and is both richer and less perfumey than some Jasmine teas. The flavor is mellow and smooth, there is very little bitterness and no astringency.

I have had good results with a shorter infusion time than recommended, and I think this tea is good for multiple infusions. You can also get a...

Orange Dulce from Mighty Leaf Tea

21 / 100 Aroma: 2/10 Flavor: 1/5 Value: 1/5
Sep. 1st, 2009

I am not a fan of this tea. It's a black tea, supposedly also with some green tea in it, but I don't taste much of the tea. The aroma is dominated by vanilla and some other spices. The different aromas do not blend well: some are delicate, others are heavy.

I also tried making iced tea from this brew. In this ca...

Green Tea Tropical from Mighty Leaf Tea

Style: Flavored Green Tea – Region: Blend

50 / 100 Aroma: 5/10 Flavor: 4/5 Value: 2/5
Aug. 29th, 2009

Not bitter at all, and the fruitiness outweighs any sort of tea aroma. I would prefer a stronger presence of the green tea relative to the fruit, but I still enjoy it, however. This is well-executed for a fruit-flavored green tea.

My only complaint is the price tag!
