Picture of Desi Masala Chai

Desi Masala Chai from Tea People

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

83 / 100 Aroma: 9/10 Flavor: 5/5 Value: 3/5
Aug. 5th, 2014

The aroma of the tea is expectantly spicy, deliciously so, I would go as far as mouth-wateringly so, but it is no secret that I go gaga for spices. The Assam is rich and malty with notes of molasses as well, it is quite sweet, also the spices are strong but well balanced. None of this cinnamon elbowing its way to the f...

The aroma is very floral and refreshing, with notes of heady roses and jasmine and a strong citrus note from the lemon myrtle. There are hints of honey sweetness and fresh vegetation as well.

Tasting the tea, it is quite delicate and refreshing, it blends the taste of fresh herbs and vegetation, floral notes and a b...

Kyoto Cherry Rose Organic Green from Good Life Tea

Style: Flavored Green Tea – Region: China

67 / 100 Aroma: 7/10 Flavor: 3/5 Value: 4/5
Aug. 3rd, 2014

The aroma of this tea is a nice blend of cherries and roses with just a gentle touch of the green base. It is very much the green of fresh vegetation, like the leaves of a rose bush or cherry tree. Sweet and summery, this tea evokes gardens in full bloom.

The taste is, well, light and uninspiring, which is a surpris...

Genmaicha from Good Life Tea

Aug. 3rd, 2014

The aroma is exactly what you expect from a Genmaicha, if you have never had the pleasure of sniffing one, the notes are a blend of roasted rice, a touch of honey sweetness, a bit of freshly mown grass and hay, and just a touch of fresh vegetation. It is a delightful blend of green tea and popped rice, the aroma is one...

Aug. 2nd, 2014

The aroma of this very flowery pile of leaves is quite interesting, a blend of roses, mint, lavender, and a finish of green vegetation. The leaves smell like late spring time and nature, it reminds me of the smell of my mother's garden as I grew up, I love it!

Usually with a tea like this I would say something like...

Lotus from The Persimmon Tree

90 / 100 Aroma: 9/10 Flavor: 5/5 Value: 4/5
Aug. 2nd, 2014

The aroma of the dry leaves is pretty intense, very strong anise aroma with touches of honey, yeasty bread, green stems, and just the faintest hint of pepper. It is strange to call such a spicy aroma heady, but it is like sniffing a spicy flower.

The first steep starts off quite sweet and rich, like honey drizzled y...

Tamarind Pop from Butiki Teas

67 / 100 Aroma: 6/10 Flavor: 4/5 Value: 3/5
Jul. 22nd, 2014

The aroma is leafy, like fresh vegetation, this fades to vanilla sweetness and a nutty tone. At the end of the sniff the aroma is sweet and a touch floral. I do not smell much in the way of tamarind, but it has been a long time since I sniffed any.

Tasting this tea gave me a bit of a surprise, because it reminds me ...

77 / 100 Aroma: 7/10 Flavor: 4/5 Value: 4/5
Jun. 8th, 2014

The aroma is a blend of mango sweetness, nutty coconut, and a tiny bit of earthy and metallic Pu'erh. The coconut has a bit of that 'old' coconut oil aroma, it is not off putting and it is very faint.

The taste, oh man, it is so sweet! Very strong notes of mango and papaya. This fades into very strong notes of cocon...

Sweet Orange White from Simple Loose Leaf

Jun. 8th, 2014

The aroma is very citrus heavy, it is a little on the artificial side and sadly reminds me of the orange bathroom cleanser I used to use. Underneath the heavy swath of orange there are notes of lettuce and delicate floral.

Tasting the tea sadly confirmed my fear, this tea tastes like air freshener. Now don't get me ...

Jun. 4th, 2014

The aroma is extremely floral and sweet. If you have never sniffed an osmanthus flower, the aroma is like a mix of jasmine, honeysuckle, and orange blossoms, it is heady and heavenly, tiny flowers with a very strong aroma. Blend this flower's aroma with a sweet, almost milky, aroma of the oolong. There are also faint n...

May. 25th, 2014

The aroma of this tea is very sweet and creamy with extremely strong spices. The cinnamon and cloves really overpower the rest of the aromas, but there is a faint hint of malt, pumpkin, and caramel under the potent spices.

The initial impact of the taste is a tingly and numb feeling from the spices, it is a little o...

The aroma is primarily a blend of sweet oranges and sour lemon with a nice artichoke finish. The aroma of citrus always puts me in a good mood, it is like sunshine on a cold day, I smell it and I cannot help but smile.

The taste is both light and bright, it quenches the thirst and brings a feeling of happiness. A gr...

80 / 100 Aroma: 8/10 Flavor: 4/5 Value: 4/5
May. 8th, 2014

I found the aroma to be very green, like bamboo leaves and herbaceous like dill weed. There is also earthiness and the aroma of baked bread with a slight undertone of sweetness. The ginseng is an odd smelling herb, it gives a slight muskiness to the already herbaceous aroma.

The taste is strange yet good, it is the ...

Apr. 24th, 2014

The aroma is more or less exactly what I expected from a tea named Gingerbread Smoke, it is quite richly smoky with warm spices and an especially strong kick of ginger. Everything about the aroma of this tea is warm, from the lingering memories of a fire to the spices, good for sniffing on a chilly evening.

The aroma is a happy dance of sweet chocolate, rich spices, and nutty coconut. It reminds me a bit of xocolatl but with coconut and the earthiness of black tea. This tea smells delicious.

The taste is malty and chocolaty with a gentle kick of cinnamon. It moves on from the initial malt and chocolate to rich buttery...

The dry leaves smell just like the carrot cake my mom would make for my birthday when I was a wee little one. The aroma is rich and sweet, blending carrots, spices, and vanilla for an added extra frosting like treat.

The taste is spicy and earthy, like an unsweetened carrot cake. The spices are subtle, no kick in th...

he aroma is quite yummy and evocative of autumn. The allspice and ginger are the most prominent aroma with the cinnamon, clove, and nutmeg dancing around in the background, and there is a nice malty undertone. It blends the spices with bright black tea aroma that is nothing short of mouthwatering.

The aroma of this tea smells JUST like peaches, not nasty fake peaches or peach candy, but the real juicy fruit. There is milder note of apricot, and a touch of lemon myrtle

The aroma is crazy sweet, blending notes of marshmallow that fades into chocolate and lastly graham crackers and hint of malt. It certainly smells like a s'more! Once brewed the aroma becomes primarily chocolate with hints of the other aromas.

This tea was surprisingly not sweet, it had the qualities of dark chocola...

The aroma is spot on, it smells just like an oatmeal raisin cookie! It is sweet, spicy, malty, raisiny (totally a word now), and of course has the grainy quality of oatmeal. The cinnamon is a little stronger than the particular cookies I grew up with, but I have had some that smell as strongly of cinnamon as this tea d...

The blend of herbs is a blend of savory and faintly sweet with sharp notes of mint. The mint and basil are the most prominent notes with a finish of coriander and fennel.

The taste of this tea is pleasantly savory, blending strong herbaceous notes with cooked spinach. The herb bread analogy from earlier is holding ...

The aroma is vegetal and peachy, mixing corn, vegetation, and peas. It certainly smells like a garden! The brewed leaves smell like spinach, peas and corn with a faint hint of peaches, it is a little odd.

The aroma is sweet and creamy with a nice blend of spices. Steeping the teabag brings out the vanilla creaminess and reminds me of non dairy vanilla creamy. Not much in the way of tea aroma at all.

The taste is kinda like non dairy vanilla creamer as well, but with a nutty quality and a hint of spices. Not terrible ...

The aroma is loaded with cinnamon and spices with a hint of liqueur. The brewed tea smells a lot like Red Hot candies, tons of sweet cinnamon with a hint of orange and black tea.

The taste is, well kinda painful. Way too much cinnamon and cloves make it bitter, artificial, and mouth numbing. The taste of the base t...
