Picture of Blueberry Green Tea

Blueberry Green Tea from Republic of Tea

Style: Fruit Green Tea – Region: Blend

70 / 100 Aroma: 7/10 Flavor: 4/5 Value: 3/5
Jul. 11th, 2014

I made this three times and noticed that it varies quite a bit depending on how it is prepared. The best result came from using freshly boiled water (normally, green tea gets a lower temperature) and a steep time of only a few minutes. The flavor then is quite pleasant and smooth, but not especially strong.

Given th...

Blueberry Black Tea from Spice and Tea Exchange

Style: Fruit Black Tea – Region: Yunnan, China

70 / 100 Aroma: 6/10 Flavor: 4/5 Value: 3/5
Jul. 6th, 2014

Definitely one of the best black teas I've tried. It isn't bitter (even though I accidentally brewed it for almost 9 minutes), and the blueberry flavor goes with it very well. The fruitiness is present, but not overwhelming and the flavor seems natural. As usual, I didn't add any sugar, milk, or lemon juice.

If you ...

Style: Chai / Spiced Tea – Region: Sri Lanka / Ceylon

90 / 100 Aroma: 10/10 Flavor: 4/5 Value: 3/5
Jul. 1st, 2014

The aroma may be the best part of this tea, with the flavor being a solid second. The smell is just about perfect if you're in the mood for something at once spicy and comforting.

The flavor was full and satisfying, though I'd personally prefer a tiny bit of sweetness be added to the flavor. So I ended up adding a b...

Jun. 26th, 2014

Now THIS is what a blended green tea should taste like! Love the fruitiness. I tried this twice, once hot and once iced, and both times it was excellent. It was prepared for me at a local coffee shop, so I can't give recommendations on steep time, but I'll be sure to ask them next time I get tea there.

Very smooth, ...

Earl Grey Full Leaf from Tazo Tea

60 / 100 Aroma: 7/10 Flavor: 3/5 Value: 3/5
Jun. 23rd, 2014

I wanted to try another Earl Grey to make sure I properly gave that flavor a shot: I'm now more sure that black teas aren't my bag.

I think that someone who actually likes black tea (especially with a slight bitterness) would find this one pleasant. The bergamot and lavender work well together, both as a flavor and ...

Jun. 17th, 2014

If you're in three mood for a lightly minty green tea, this one isn't bad. The flavors are smoother, subtler, and more harmonious than their herbal mint tea.

80 / 100 Aroma: 8/10 Flavor: 5/5 Value: 3/5
May. 23rd, 2014

This is the first time I've really enjoyed a flavored green tea. More often I prefer my green tea pure, but the raspberry in this works really, really well. It's the kind of tea I could see becoming an "everyday" type with me. The aroma was pleasantly fruity too.

Bumble Bee White Tea from Positiffitea

Style: Flavored White Tea – Region: Blend

60 / 100 Aroma: 5/10 Flavor: 3/5 Value: 3/5
May. 23rd, 2014

With a name referencing bees, I mistakenly assumed the flavor would be of honey. It turned out the bee reference is due to the assortment of flowers included in the drink.

This tea is perfectly fine for a white tea. It didn't overwhelm me with awesomeness, but I think regular white tea drinkers may really enjoy it.

80 / 100 Aroma: 9/10 Flavor: 5/5 Value: 2/5
May. 23rd, 2014

Complex, robust, and pleasant. Love this tea. Without even placing it near my face, there was a strongly peppery aroma. There are an assortment of spices in here, several of which I'm sure I can't identify. But they all went very well together.

The main thing is not to let it overbrew, as this makes it a bitter blac...

53 / 100 Aroma: 4/10 Flavor: 3/5 Value: 4/5
Apr. 29th, 2014

With this tea I notice distinctly but subtly the flavors of both green tea and ginger. There has to be better ginger green teas out there, but this one isn't bad. I don't know what kind of green tea they used, but it doesn't seem like a messy blend the way that Tazo's version of this tea did. I bought my 20 bag pack fo...

Green Ginger from Tazo Tea

37 / 100 Aroma: 3/10 Flavor: 2/5 Value: 3/5
Apr. 29th, 2014

I was really hoping for better. I think the fact that it's a green tea blend rather than a specifically chosen variety of green tea may have been part of the problem. It's a bit of a mess without any clear standout flavors, imo. I didn't notice any specific pear flavor, and even the ginger was fairly muted rather than ...

Pu-erh Ginger from Rishi Tea

Style: Flavored Pu-erh – Region: Blend

70 / 100 Aroma: 6/10 Flavor: 4/5 Value: 3/5
Apr. 18th, 2014

This is a very interesting tea. It's got the body of a black/breakfast tea, but a flavor I prefer over that kind. The ginger works well with the pu-erh, which has an almost raw fish-like aroma and flavor that is better than that description might make it sound. This tea works really well with food.

Mar. 9th, 2014

I'm glad I tried this one, though I wasn't crazy about it. It tasted, more or less, like a straight forward white tea without accent flavors or scents. Not bad, but not ... um ... my cup of tea. :-)

Updated Review: I tried this tea again and, this time, i was able to make it so that it was more enjoyable. As long as i don't let it overbrew and I add milk, this is actually quite a delightful tea--invigorating without being bitter.

The bergamot tastes natural, but I'd like a more robust citrus flavor. Last time I...

Feb. 23rd, 2014

Meh. Again, I was underwhelmed by this tea from Twinings. Like their Earl Grey tea, I certainly appreciated the use of citrus to balance out the black tea. However, I found the overall effect unimpressive. I really need to try a high quality Earl Grey or Lady Grey tea to give these styles a fair shot. I'm glad I have a...

Feb. 23rd, 2014

This was my first time tasting an Earl Grey tea. I definitely appreciated the bergamot orange balancing out the black tea flavor a bit, though it still wasn't enough for me to outright enjoy this tea. On its own, it was still too tanniny, or something (bitter isn't quite the right word). With food (I had fried eggs) it...

Jasmine Green (Formerly Monkey King) from Numi Organic Tea

Feb. 1st, 2014

This tea had a strong jasmine scent that was very pleasant. The green tea wasn't as distinct of a scent for me, though once I began sipping it was definitely counter-balancing the jasmine. This one tasted a *lot* like flowering teas I've had in the past.

For the second steeping, I added a bit of honey, but found tha...

Jan. 24th, 2014

This tea has, unsurprisingly, a distinctly 'black tea lightly sweetened with vanilla' aroma. (In fact, the only other ingredient listed is "natural flavors".) In general, I like the simplicity of its design. After tasting it, I'm a fan of the vanilla, but I think I may not be a black tea person. I prefer teas that don'...

To be fair, it takes me awhile to get through tea and I've had these packets a long time. So perhaps the tea has gone stale. I think I liked it a bit more when I first bought it.

As of now, I'm not detecting any distinct ginger and very little pear. The flavor isn't bad, but is very meh. For my second cup I added ho...
