Cheap!!!! And convenient. Not a holy grail but I love Jasmine teas and this one is good in a pinch. (Bagged.)

Really, Alex? I love this one - maybe I am just a noob - but I used to get this at a local coffee shop in the morning and I just LOVED it. Mild green flavor and a huge bag size. I also like the Green Tea Tropical (Which is more like straight fruit).

Green Tea Tropical from Mighty Leaf Tea

Style: Flavored Green Tea – Region: Blend

May. 16th, 2013

A very tasty tea with fruity notes and smells great in the bag and while steeping. No sweetener needed. A fave for sure! (But a bit pricey). NOT grassy - very fruity and not so green.

I live this but not as much as some of the otther ROT fruit-teas. I love the green grassy notes and smooth drinkability especially over ice. Smells fruity, berry-like and sweet. Fun to try.

#209 - Lady Londonderry from Tealuxe

Style: Flavored Black Tea – Region: India

60 / 100 Aroma: 7/10 Flavor: 4/5 Value: 2/5
May. 13th, 2013

I liked Tealuxe's teas when I went to the now closed location in NYC. Lady Londonderry was a black tea with a hint of berry flavor. Enjoyable and smells great before and during brewing.

Earl Grey Decaffeinated from Twinings

Style: Earl Grey Tea – Region: ?????

33 / 100 Aroma: 4/10 Flavor: 2/5 Value: 1/5
May. 13th, 2013

Yech! I am not an Earl Grey fan to begin with and this one not only has synthetic Bergamot notes (Think limonene from a lab!) it is also decaf and not worth drinking. Sorry, Twinings, but this bagged tea is not my fave at all! Stash makes a better one - but I hate that, too.

Earl Grey - it's just not my bag!

73 / 100 Aroma: 9/10 Flavor: 4/5 Value: 2/5
May. 13th, 2013

Super expensive (as all the cutesy-packaged Tea Forte teas are!) but so deliciously fruity and easy to drink. (You can get 2 cups easily out of a bag - so keep that in mind. Needs no sweetener. Very good for first-time tea drinkers and the adorable packaging (and high price) make it a suitable hostess gift. Fun. (S...

Jasmine Silver Needle from Adagio Teas

Style: Jasmine Silver Needle – Region: ?????

63 / 100 Aroma: 7/10 Flavor: 4/5 Value: 2/5
May. 13th, 2013

I love Jasmine - but this Silver needle is not quite as good as Ito-En's. Adagio teas I usually get online and they are pricey plus you have to pay for shipping. That said, I love this tea - and its floral whisper-soft grassy green-ness. Best served hot (IMHO) and without sweeteners or embellishments.

Jasmine Silver Needle from ITO EN

Style: Jasmine Silver Needle – Region: Fujian, China

70 / 100 Aroma: 7/10 Flavor: 4/5 Value: 3/5
May. 13th, 2013

I love Jasmine-style teas and Ito En's is no exception. Brewed loose-leaf in a diffuser or tea ball is best served hot - not sweetener or lemon required. Grassy, floral and light bodies. Easy to drink. Harder to find outside of NYC and LA.(and of course, Japan).

Jasmine Petal from Two Leaves and a Bud

Style: Jasmine Tea – Region: China

77 / 100 Aroma: 9/10 Flavor: 4/5 Value: 2/5
May. 13th, 2013

Love 2 Leaves & A Bud - and the cute bags/packaging. Even better? The tea itself is pretty darned good - especially the Jasmine Petal (green based). Grassy and floral and not bitter. Easy to drink - and great hot or on ice - with or without a bit of honey or lemon. Good sippin'!

I love this tea - second only to Ginger Peach fom the same company - and it comes loose or in bags. Fruity, herbaceous and black/caffeinated - although the decaf version is nice also. Great iced or hot.

Lemon Lift Black Tea from Bigelow Tea

Style: Lemon Black Tea – Region: ?????

53 / 100 Aroma: 7/10 Flavor: 3/5 Value: 3/5
May. 5th, 2013

Not a fan of Bieglow Teas - but my old company had them and Lemon Lift was better (to me) than the dreaded "Constant Comment" - an orange/spice. Just OK. Not a fan. I actually like the I love Lemon herbal tea (which is a tisane and contains no tea at all) a bit better when I have a cold. This is a step about Lipton...

Smells good but I hate the taste of this stuff. Ick.. I have never liked "orange spice" and this is no exception. Yick.

May. 5th, 2013

I love this bagged tea - yes, I know there are even better out there - but I keep comingback to ROT and their ginger peach green and black varieties. Great iced or hot. Subtly ginger-y and sweet without adding sugar.

Super over-priced but the cute packaging is fun. This is one of my favorite from Tea Forte - but I am a huge Jasmine/Green fan in general. Richly scented with jasmine so it is floral and sweet smelling. Very good hot.

Ginger Peach from Republic of Tea

97 / 100 Aroma: 10/10 Flavor: 5/5 Value: 5/5
May. 3rd, 2013

Love this and the decaf one. Lightly scented of Ginger - but a wonderful peachy top-note without that "artificial" peachy taste. Love this one - and I don't usually do black teas.

This might be my favorite tea ever!

I love this tea - sweet, peachy (without tasting of artificial peach) and a whisper of ginger (slightly lemony when served hot). Great hot or over iced. A winner for me.

Green Ginger from Tazo Tea

Style: Flavored Green Tea – Region: China

60 / 100 Aroma: 7/10 Flavor: 3/5 Value: 3/5

It's OK but not a holy grail. Zippy with Ginger but the green underneath is Tazo's ubiquitous grassy/mild green-generic. OK. Not great.

Zen Full Leaf from Tazo Tea

May. 3rd, 2013

Tazo is carried in Starbucks and is very available and moderately priced. Zen has a green tea base with notes of mint and cintrus. Very good over ice. A solid pick for every-day green tea. I actually prefer this to the China Green Tips (the plain green Tazo that Starbucks carries). Both are good in a pinc (airport,...

60 / 100 Aroma: 5/10 Flavor: 3/5 Value: 4/5
May. 3rd, 2013

The genmaicha is relatively grassy tasting with a bit of bitterness - but is still pleasant enough and certainly cheap enough to enjoy regularly. Good but not a holy grail.
