This is one of my favorites for dinner. I brew it lightly, if it's brewed too strongly you don't get all the flavors. Probably one of the best, mass produced american teas. Hard to find in most stores, comes in both teabag variety and loose leaf. I prefer the loose leaf.

The aroma is good, but a little weak. The flavor is stronger. Possibly one of my favorite black teas.

This tea is very mild in flavor. I like it because it's pleasant, not at all overpowering even if you leave the tea bag in your cup and doesn't leave an unpleasant aftertaste in your mouth.

I drink this a lot and bring it with me to class. I like English breakfast tea in general and this is tasty and a good price. It tastes great with some lemon and honey.

Really good if made with boiling water and steeped for a short time ... if not, it's very bitter and strong.

Wow. I love the aroma of this tea...it is much more vegetal than most black teas, clean and fresh, and yet warm too. Smooth and yet relatively full-bodied, but thin relative to some breakfast teas. No astringency.

I do notice the peppery tones characteristic of a dian hong. The aroma is pleasingly complex. Ther...

Oct. 31st, 2009

Aroma spicy, unusually vegetal for a tea this dark, and unusually malty for a Darjeeling. Very interesting and complex! Dark liquor and tastes more like other black teas than most Darjeelings; I would not describe it as "golden" or "light". Remarkably bold and full-bodied and yet with little bitterness or astringenc...

Aroma is mellow, warm, and keemun-like. But this tea is much more bitter and astringent than most keemuns--unpleasantly so. The bitterness sinks to the bottom of the cup, leaving an unpleasant surprise ending to a tea that starts out very smooth.

I recommend brewing this one briefly, only a minute or two, for best...

I swear this tastes like it has a significant amount of pu-erh in it...it has that earthy, dust-like quality to it. I never used to like lipton's decaf until I started liking pu-erh and then my appreciation of it increased slightly--but only very slightly. It really could be a lot more bland than it is. But it's sti...

This tea definitely resembles a Darjeeling but it packs a bit more of a punch--more bitterness and astringency. People who like the aroma profile and lighter color of Darjeelings but find them a bit too mellow may really like this tea. The finely broken leaves have a good mix of greener and olive-colored leaves. Rem...

Deep mahogany/orange with reddish hues. Floral nose is also earthy and delivers hints of wet leaves and spice. Tastes pungent and tannic. Very earthy with just a hint of fruitiness towards the end. Not as balanced as I'd like, but overall good. My daily drinking tea for drinking in large quantities.

I bought the non-pyramid bags of PG Tips and loved them...so I bought a bigger box, and this time noticed they were pyramid shaped when I got them home. They steep very quickly which I guess is good if you are in a rush, but if you leave it for more than 2 minutes, it's so bitter as to be practically undrinkable. I'll...

Oct. 4th, 2009

This used to be the best Darjeeling I've had in a tea bag...and better than some loose-leaf ones I've tried. I have since come to prefer Ahmad's Darjeeling though, which is much cheaper.

Fairly light, but still with some bite. This is the sort of Darjeeling tea that I like. The aroma has some interesting complexi...

Mellow, smooth, rich malty flavor. Deep red color; little bitterness or astringency. Very enjoyable. I find this tea grows on me. There is a suggestion of sweet fruit in the aroma, almost like baked apples.

Two leaves and a bud recommends a 4-minute infusion. I prefer a 2-minute infusion followed by a second 4-...

These teabags seem to be meant for more than one cup. The tea brews very rapidly and is very strong. It wasn't terribly complex; it had a muted quality...very bitter aftertaste but initial taste was a bit smoother. Very tannic; do not let this steep too long; a very brief (1 min.) infusion I find is best. Even then...

You want a tea that makes you feel less like Miss Muffet at a tea party and more like a tire-changing, farm-implement-using, PBR-swilling bad boy? This is your brew. Fiercely straightforward, startlingly bitter if left to steep. Pricier than it should be in the states.

Black Tea from Ten Ren Tea

Style: Black Tea – Region: ?????

33 / 100 Aroma: 3/10 Flavor: 2/5 Value: 2/5
Sep. 27th, 2009

I think this tea does not stack up to the quality of Ten Ren's other teabag teas; it makes me wonder if it's included only as an afterthought, as Ten Ren does not seem to specialize in black teas. Aroma is nondescript, generic, lacking complexity. If you want a darker tea from Ten Ren, I'd recommend a darker oolong.

Tetley is one of the best basic black teas out there. Unlike American brands of black teas, it never gets bitter and is enjoyable with or without milk. The caffeine is also strong enough to replace coffee, but unlike coffee it doesn't hype you up for a crash (well maybe if you drink enough cups).
While it may not be ...

Sep. 14th, 2009

Given that this was a teabag tea, made out of fannings, and the individual teabags weren't even sealed in paper, this tea was remarkably fresh and complex.

The tea brews a dark reddish brown. The flavor is mellow and the aroma earthy; it reminds me a lot of a keemun. There's a little bitterness and some astringenc...
