Picture of Holiday Chai Black Tea

Holiday Chai Black Tea from Stash Tea

Style: Chai / Spiced Tea – Region: ?????

83 / 100 Aroma: 10/10 Flavor: 4/5 Value: 3/5
Aug. 24th, 2013

The best part of this tea is the aroma, so many wonderful spices that are nostalgic and wonderful. You can even smell the hint of Rum.

The taste is mild and well balanced with the spices, luckily no one thing overpowers which can be a problem with cinnamon heavy teas.

Birthday Tea from Adagio Teas

Aug. 21st, 2013

When you open up a bag of loose tea and see sprinkles hanging out with the leaves you cannot help but smile. I got a sample of this from Adagio when I ordered a bunch of tea for my birthday...so nice when a company pays attention to these things!

The aroma is so uncannily like a cupcake that I could have been foole...

Aug. 19th, 2013

I have no complaints about the aroma, it smells like a mix of oranges and lemons, which is pleasant, especially first thing in the morning when you need an extra zing.

Sadly the flavor left a lot to be desired, it tasted too artificial. Like drinking a particularly weak tea that accidentally had some perfume dumped...

English Afternoon from Ahmad Tea

Style: Earl Grey Tea – Region: Blend

60 / 100 Aroma: 6/10 Flavor: 3/5 Value: 3/5
Aug. 17th, 2013

The aroma is pleasant and mild with a hint of Bergamot.

The flavor was slightly bitter and citrusy from the Bergamot and Ceylon, but other than that there is no real flavor. I was not overwhelmed with the flavor and a little disappointed.

Aug. 17th, 2013

The first thing that struck me about this tea was the aroma, this might be the first Earl Grey I have sampled where you can smell the tea under the Bergamot. So often with Earl Grey I can never get a feel for the tea's aroma because I am too busy being kicked in the face with Bergamot. The aroma is fantastic, smooth an...

Lavender Sencha Green Tea from Wegmans

Style: Flavored Green Tea – Region: Japan

73 / 100 Aroma: 7/10 Flavor: 4/5 Value: 4/5
Jul. 8th, 2013

The aroma of lavender overpowers the aroma of the sencha with the fresh leaves, it is sad but I love the smell of lavender and am a sucker for anything lavender flavored.

The brewed tea has more of the bright green aroma of the sencha which blends well with the lavender. The color is also a really lovely light gree...

Chai Masala Tulsi Tea from Organic India

Style: Chai / Spiced Tea – Region: ?????

80 / 100 Aroma: 8/10 Flavor: 5/5 Value: 3/5
Jun. 21st, 2013

The aroma on this Chai is delightful! A mix of earthiness, peppery, cloves, and something I am not familiar with which I am assuming it is the Tulsi.

The taste is also quite good, the masala blend is well balanced and the base tea is very mild. I really like the herby taste of the tea and think it blends well with ...

60 / 100 Aroma: 7/10 Flavor: 3/5 Value: 3/5
Jun. 20th, 2013

The aroma of this tea is delightful! The smell is sweet and spicy, very rich with lots of clove.

Sadly the aroma and the taste did not match, I found the tea underwhelming. Still a nice clove taste but really that is it. I am sadly disappointed.

Organic Tumeric Ginger from Republic of Tea

67 / 100 Aroma: 7/10 Flavor: 3/5 Value: 3/5
Jun. 18th, 2013

This is a very complex and unusual tea, luckily not in a bad way. Introduced to me as having 'an acquired taste' I can certainly agree.

The aroma is a great mix of spicy ginger and earthy turmeric that just floods your olfactory glands with a punch of spice. It is intense!

The flavor of this bright yellow tea is...

Jun. 13th, 2013

This tea is fantastic, absolutely fantastic! I might be more than a little partial since Cardamon is possibly my favorite spice to add to tea with sharp competition with Star Anise.

The aroma is a very pleasing blend of the spice and smooth base tea, neither overpower the other.

The same can be said about the ta...

May. 30th, 2013

I have had both the bags and the loose leaf of this delightful tea, I prefer the loose but the bags are wonderful as well. The aroma is a great blend of vanilla and almond that does not overpower the tea smell. The flavor comes in layers, first the almond, then the vanilla, and lastly the smooth black tea. Rich without...

Cherry Green from Adagio Teas

67 / 100 Aroma: 6/10 Flavor: 4/5 Value: 3/5
May. 30th, 2013

The first thing you notice is the almost overwhelming aroma of cherries when you open the bag, not bad but very strong. After a brew you still get the aroma and a delicate taste of cherries and a mild green tea. A very smooth tea evoking spring time. I found this tea was best straight with no sugar or cream since it is...

May. 30th, 2013

I really wanted to like this tea, but something just didn't work for me. I think it was because the pear aroma and flavor tasted more like a candy or artificial flavoring than pear, and considering pear is my favorite fruit I might be just really picky. The actual tea flavor was oddly dirty and unlike any white I have ...

So many spices and appley goodness! It is like a perfect Apple cider with a Masala style zing. It is perfect for a cold morning. The aroma or both the leaves and the liquid is like autumn, all apples and warm spices. My only complaint is that the apple cider taste seems to drown out the tea making it more like drinking...

May. 30th, 2013

I am extremely picky when it comes to blueberry flavored tea, I want it to taste like ripe, sweet, blueberries and not tart unpleasant fruit. So many teas make the tart mistake but not this one! The aroma when opening the package is blueberries all the way, an added plus when you actually see blueberries in the leaves....

May. 30th, 2013

This is such a decadent tea! Delicious and bold the aroma is that of rich, sweet cream and the taste matches. A great dessert tea and an even better breakfast tea (if you want something sweet first thing).

I would not recommend this tea if you are not a fan of sweets!

This chai is not bad but it is also not very overwhelming. I was hoping for more of a rich spicy chai with a chocolate zing but it was mainly a mild chai with more chocolate aroma than taste.

This just might be my new favorite from Adagio! Wonderfully floral and fruity with just a slight tart taste...just like guanabana fruit. It tastes good black or with a bit of sugar and milk.

The tea leaves smell very chocolaty but sadly I felt like the tea just tasted burnt. Also tastes a bit bitter like dark chocolate which I liked and felt complimented the tea taste. Wish it did not have the burnt taste or it would be a favorite!

The first thing you notice with this tea is the overpowering perfume of roses, it is like walking into a rose garden during full summer and everything is in bloom. It is not at all unpleasant or artificial smelling.

The taste is sublime, it is like drinking a rose garden with a really lovely black tea. Subtly sweet...

I love almond teas and I am always looking for new ones to try, this one did not disappoint. At first the aroma of the leaves had me a bit worried, it was almost overpowering and I thought the tea would be bitter from almond extract (a common problem with almond teas) but upon brewing I discovered that the tea was not ...

At first I was worried because all I could smell was vanilla when I opened the tea, no smell of tea! After steeping that changed, the vanilla mixed with the green smell of the tea. The tea tastes wonderful! Slightly sweet with mild vanilla and bright green. Definitely a favorite!

Toasted Sesame from Adagio Teas

Dec. 2nd, 2012

The aroma of the leaves and the tea itself are very bland, no toasted sesame at all just a vague burnt smell.

Sadly I found this tea disappointing, it tastes like a decent black tea but there is not sesame taste except for a vague burnt taste. I was hoping for a bold sesame taste but did not get that.

Almond Oolong from Adagio Teas

Dec. 2nd, 2012

The initial aroma of the leaves is unmistakably almond, sadly I do not smell any Oolong at first and that made me a bit hesitant. After brewing the smell of almond subsides and the oolong shows itself. The taste is very mild, light almond and Oolong flavors for an overall subtle tea.

This was the first Genmai Cha that I ever had years ago, so it has a real nostalgia value even though I have had better it is still a favorite. The aroma is really mild and slightly nutty and you get more rice than tea. The tea is also really mild but the longer you steep the tea the more the flavor bursts out, luckily...
