Coconut Green Tea With Lemongrass and Ginger from Trader Joe's

Style: Flavored Green Tea – Region: Blend

83 / 100 Aroma: 9/10 Flavor: 4/5 Value: 5/5

Even though I like the flavor of coconut -- a lot -- I admit a great deal of skepticism upon learning of the new existence of this tea. Coconut in tea? The idea struck me as one of these "Be different just to be different" deals, destined to go the way of others such as 7Up Gold or Crystal Pepsi in sodas. Maybe it is...

Jasmine Green Tea from Twinings

Style: Jasmine Tea – Region: ?????

23 / 100 Aroma: 2/10 Flavor: 1/5 Value: 2/5
Feb. 11th, 2016

Wow, where to start...this "tea" is not, in any shape or form, worthy of a brand of such tradition and repute. A friend sold me a box he brought back from jolly ol' England, and after drinking just one bag's worth, I wanted to bust him in his jolly ol' mouth. Fortunately for him, I tried three more bags (in one cup, ...

Jasmine Green Tea from Trader Joe's

Style: Jasmine Tea – Region: ?????

60 / 100 Aroma: 5/10 Flavor: 3/5 Value: 4/5
Feb. 11th, 2016

Admittedly I've only tried two jasmine green teas so far--Twinings and Trader Joe's, and I thought Twinings was beyond lame. So I may be too jaded by a crappy experience with another brand. That said...

By comparison, TJ's is much more flavorful and "jasminy", but it could be far stronger still both for the base t...

English Afternoon from Ahmad Tea

Style: Earl Grey Tea – Region: Blend

83 / 100 Aroma: 9/10 Flavor: 5/5 Value: 2/5
Feb. 11th, 2016

I didn't see a place on here for their loose-leaf version of this tea, but in general my impressions are the same (if more favorably numbered) than Alex Zorach's below. No tea on Earth is too strong for me, but I'll at least call this one worthy of the adjective "strong". The value ranking is the only thing holding i...

Double Bergamot Earl Grey Tea from Stash Tea

Style: Earl Grey Tea – Region: ?????

90 / 100 Aroma: 8/10 Flavor: 5/5 Value: 5/5
Feb. 11th, 2016

So far, this is my favorite EG, because it's less expensive than similarly robust English teas but comparable in body and richness. This tea hits you with a hearty dose of bergamot, exactly as advertised. No pretension, no fanciful attempts at backtaste or mystery...and I like it that way. It's a tea John Wayne migh...

Earl Grey from Bigelow Tea

Style: Earl Grey Tea – Region: Blend

57 / 100 Aroma: 6/10 Flavor: 2/5 Value: 3/5
Feb. 11th, 2016

As Earl Greys go, this is about average. Decent, but somewhat flat. Bigelow seems to pride themselves on black-tea quality, and their other flavored teas seem to back up such sentiment.

This, however, is a tea that smells far stronger and better in its packaging than it brews out. The bergamot seems muted, unde...
