London Cuppa Loose Tea from The London Cuppa

Apr. 5th, 2010

Very finely broken black tea--no semblance of whole leaf left in the mix. Aroma is mostly malty with a hint of rice-like tones. Fairly tannic even if brewed weakly.

The instructions on the tin said 3-4 minutes; 4 minutes yields a very strong cup, which some people may like, but I preferred 2 or less.

Overall ch...

English Breakfast from Darvilles of Windsor

Apr. 3rd, 2010

This is a very strong black tea. While I tend to prefer slightly more mellow black teas, this tea is among one of the better teas of such strength that I've tried. Unusually malty for an English breakfast, and the malt is rich and fulfilling. Almost more like an Irish breakfast. Strongly bitter and strongly astring...

Apr. 2nd, 2010

Aroma is rice-like, and very slightly malty, with a slight hint of smokiness, and somewhat fruity. Most of these qualities are very subtle. It's hard to say whether the aroma is balanced or muddled...it somehow straddles these two possibilities. I am not crazy about how the different aspects of the aroma blend toget...

Mar. 25th, 2010

A solid, if somewhat generic black tea that is dark and full-bodied but tends on the mellow side of flavor.

The aroma is typical for a Ceylon black tea, and has only mild nuances of dried fruit and nut (like Upton suggests). I'm not really feeling the "citrus notes" but I do notice a sweet aftertaste. There's much...

Black Tea from Lipton Tea

Mar. 24th, 2010

This tea is low-grade swill. It's popular only because of advertising and price, not because of taste. It delivers an artificial, generic tea flavor. Even if someone wants an orange and black pekoe tea Red Rose, Tetley, and/or Bromley are arguably slightly better but definitely a better buy. Given a choice between ...

Simple, but as the title suggests, classic. It goes with almost anything and it's perfect for when you just want (black) tea without the extras

Mar. 22nd, 2010

Fairly light overall, especially compared to Twinings' other black teas. There's some complexity in the aroma, in my opinion, more than their other black teas with the exception of their Ceylon (my favorite). Smooth...less astringency or bitterness. I find you can steep this one a little longer without it becoming t...

I was pleasantly surprised with this teabag; it's just fannings/dust and doesn't look like much, but even the dry teabag is pleasantly aromatic. The name surprised me--I was expecting a kind of spiced tea but then I realized that "Chai Bora" is just the brand name. And "chai" just means tea after all!

This tea's complexity surprised me! Unusually vegetal for a black tea, with a hint of savory qualities. Dark in color, and full-bodied, but delicate. Fairly bitter, especially in the aftertaste...moderately tannic and astringent.

The aroma of this tea would place it on par with some of the better single-estate Da...

There is just something about red rose that makes it the best black iced tea. It seems to not ever go flat tasting even after hanging in the fridge a few days. Everyone raves about my iced tea, and I just laugh. It's such a bargain.

An honest mountain Ceylon with clean flavor and aroma. Slightly weak brew, however.

(The Keurig K-Cup version of this Bigelow tea is better than the bag.)

Mar. 9th, 2010

My favorite of the low priced Assam from special tea's. Very rich in flavor,though if you are a lover of malty Assam you will find this tea to be lacking a truly strong malty-ness. If you are like me then I suggest Yamamotoyama's orange pekoe.

Overall a good tea.

not a typical malty assam, smooth and mild. Aroma and flavor are lacking, but for the price a great bargain.

Smooth and silky on the tongue, with a malty aftertaste that Irish breakfasts are known for, but less malty than most. Regarding value, worth twice the price paid Overall a great value, rich flavor, silky smooth mouth feel.

Well....it tastes like it tastes. I could probably ID this tea blindfolded. It reminds me oddly of yerba mate and never brews very strong. Aroma is pretty much nil. I only really drink this tea at hotels.

This is my everyday breakfast tea. Deeper and darker colored than an English breakfast, this very full-bodied black tea (with a splash of milk) is one of the most satisfying teas I've ever had. Not elegant, but full throttle flavors and finish. I buy it 2# at a time for $32. UPDATE: Special Teas has closed its doors. O...

This seemingly straightforward Darjeeling has quickly become one of my favorite everyday teas. Although "typical" in many respects, it is surprisingly complex...the aroma has many different aspects to it: a fruitiness, a hint of a rice-like quality, some floral tones, a bit of spice, a suggestion of fall leaves, and s...

This is the first broken-leaf Ceylon from Upton that has been drinkable to me, and I'm surprised to find it completely lacking in the harshness that the other ones I've tried have had.

The aroma is totally unlike any black tea I have tried...it reminds me of rice and rice pastries. I like Upton's description "brigh...
