Sep. 26th, 2010

I don't find much difference among the various serious Earl Greys (I'm dismissing some of the really cheap ones with a fake taste), maybe because the bergamot gives them all a distinctive flavor. This one is a pleasant, reasonably aromatic version. Generally, I prefer a stronger, darker tea, but this would be good for...

Sep. 20th, 2010

Bigelow teas always sound fantastic in theory but taste like hot water... they just never live up to their potential (which I guess, to be fair, is not really a surprise considering Bigelow is the type of tea you tend to drink because the coffee is instant and the other alternative in the wicker basket is some kind of ...

Sep. 19th, 2010

I was expecting this tea to be fruitier and more citrusy than it was, but I was pleasantly surprised. Both the bergamot and citrus presence are balanced, and you really notice the underlying black tea. The aromas blend very well. I suspect that this may be due to the fact that this blend uses actual citrus peel rath...

Sep. 18th, 2010

Muscat wine flavored tea... very strange yet intriguing! A fantastic smelling tea, however the flavor itself is a little lacking- not bad by any means but I found the novelty sort of wears off half way through the cup. I got this as a tea sample when purchasing other teas from Lupicia and while I enjoyed the experience...

Aug. 30th, 2010

The loose leaf is larger and lighter gray than any of Teatulia's other black teas. The aroma of the dry leaf is strongly of bergamot, but it is a deep, complex aroma.

I brewed this tea for two minutes using one teaspoon per cup. This produced a bold, strong cup of tea that I think is a classic Earl Grey: very bala...

Aug. 21st, 2010

This is interesting because it's so radically different from Organic India's blend of Tulsi and Black Tea that I almost wouldn't consider it the same style or in the same category.

The black tea used in this blend has some bite to it and is rather tannic. The aroma is deep and malty. The tea definitely dominates t...

The leaf looks just like black tea and the aroma is initially just like a particularly unremarkable black tea, but upon sipping the cup, wow, an explosion of flavor unlike anything I've had before.

It's hard to describe exactly what the neem is adding to this tea, because I've never tried anything from the neem tree...

Devonshire Earl Grey from Upton Tea Imports

93 / 100 Aroma: 9/10 Flavor: 5/5 Value: 5/5
Jul. 25th, 2010

This is the newest of Upton's Earl Greys. It has a floral, sweet scent, with a touch of Juicy Fruit gum. This carries through into the taste, but the bergamot increases here, so you are left with a very pleasant cup. They add a bit of lemon or peel to the blend, which deepens the tea. I particularly like it blended...

Very orangey and fruity aroma, and spicy, but I notice more clove than cinnamon (which I like). Very different in character from Constant Comment though. This tea leaves a tingly sensation in the mouth, possibly from the clove. My main complaint about this tea is that it is boring.

The black tea has a fairly stro...

One of my all-time favorites. It has the full body of a good black tea, along with a sweeter flavor from the raspberries. This tea goes well with a light afternoon lunch or high tea.

To me, this tea doesn't have a strong aroma, but the flavor is excellent. It's very biting, very bitter. I recommend a fair amount of sugar to cut the bite. This and the Victorian Rose tea are my favorite teas.

Overall, this is one of the best teas you can buy from Tealuxe. The aroma and flavor are both fantastic. This is a great tea to enjoy first thing in the morning, since it's not strong or biting, or for relaxing later in the day. Make sure to enjoy the smell.

This tea is like a more delicious version of Earl Grey. Maybe Russian Caravan meets Earl Grey...the sound of those two just makes my mouth water. The bergamot and orange hints make this a delicious full bodied tea - a perfect complement afternoon tea pastries.

I had to try this tea because my neighborhood tea sommelier told me it was based on Muscat wine...which I love. The aroma of this tea knocks your socks off...its sweet, flowery, almost with a fruit punch scent. However, the taste is no where near as strong as the aroma which i thought was odd. It wasn't a bad thing, st...

This is an interesting blend as the addition of calendula (pot marigold) flowers is subtle and, at least as I perceive it, only slightly tweaks, rather than characterizes, this blend. The flower is well-chosen: it blends seamlessly with the base tea, and it's really impossible for me to say where the tea ends and cale...

it's got a silly name, and it does feel a little silly bringing this box out of the cupboard in the cold hard light of January, but it's such a treat! if tea can be "cute," that's what this is! i adore it.

Exceptionally lemony and citrusy for an Earl Grey...there's only a weak suggestion of the usual bergamot aroma. The aroma is more like candied lemon than Earl Grey tea, and it has an artificial quality to it. The black tea presence is entirely unremarkable...although this tea brews a dark color, there is little other...

I disliked this tea...the vanilla aroma is fairly strong but has an artificial quality to it. It also doesn't blend well with the black tea. Admittedly, vanilla-flavored tea is not one of my favorites, but when well executed, it is creamy and smooth and yet having some depth. This one just comes across as vanilla pu...

Tastes like Kool-Aid, basically. I was unable to distinguish any basic tea flavor. And I had to use two teabags per cup to get much flavor at all.

No, thank you.

As its name implies, this is a seasonal offering, available only around Christmas and priced like a once-a-year indulgence. The flavor is festive, with warming spices and a bright, optimistic note from the orange peel. It has a slightly astringent quality too; I don't know whether that's from the citrus or the Indian t...

Apricot or peach with ginger is one of my favorite black tea flavorings, so I was excited to try this one. While it has a sweet, gentle flavor with a mild zing, none of the components really shine - I wish I could taste more of the apricot, the ginger, and the tea itself. It makes an okay evening tea, when I want somet...

Unremarkable base black tea in this blend...not very aromatic. Fruity aroma is natural and pleasant, however...fairly strong but not overwhelming. Flavor is mostly sour...not so much that it's too sour but that there isn't really anything other than sourness in the flavor.

I found this tea to be disappointing. A ...
