White Ginger Pear from Tea Forte

Style: Fruit White Tea – Region: Blend

50 / 100 Aroma: 5/10 Flavor: 3/5 Value: 2/5
Nov. 4th, 2014

The tea bag has pretty broken pieces of leaf. Brews up a hazy greenish-colored cup.

The pear aroma is just the right strength, and blends well with the base tea. I don't notice the ginger much at all. Ginger is a strong flavor and I expect it to add a bit of edge or spiciness, as well as warmth, and I sense none ...

Oasis from Tea Forte

Style: Flavored Green Tea – Region: Blend

53 / 100 Aroma: 5/10 Flavor: 5/5 Value: 2/5
Apr. 1st, 2010

Fairly bitter; almost tastes like it contains lemongrass but it's not listed on the ingredient list. Not floral, in spite of the flowers--the marigold imparts a warm but somewhat heavy quality. Citrusy, but in a slightly harsh, citronella-like way rather than a fruity way. Pleasantly astringent.

More than a bit m...

White Ambrosia from Tea Forte

Style: Flavored White Tea – Region: Blend

40 / 100 Aroma: 2/10 Flavor: 5/5 Value: 2/5
Mar. 25th, 2010

This tea brews a fairly dark amber color. Aroma is mostly of coconut. I don't like the aroma...it's more like that of a coconut lotion or soap than tea. I can't notice much tea in the aroma...the tea is more present in the finish/aftertaste though.

Although I find the aroma very unpleasant, I must say I like the ...

African Solstice from Tea Forte

Style: Flavored Rooibos – Region: Blend

57 / 100 Aroma: 6/10 Flavor: 4/5 Value: 2/5
Mar. 17th, 2010

Smooth and really well-balanced...the aromas of fruit, rooibos, and vanilla blend well; it's hard to tell where one ends and the other begins. A warming tea. Rich aroma but mellow flavor...no bitterness and a surprisingly clean aftertaste.

I was able to make two infusions (3 min. and 5 min.) with a small 8-oz cup,...

Bombay Chai from Tea Forte

Style: Chai / Spiced Tea – Region: India

43 / 100 Aroma: 5/10 Flavor: 3/5 Value: 2/5
Jan. 29th, 2010

A smooth, gentle chai with a tangy aftertaste. Aroma sweet, spicey, and malty. Clove and cinnamon are particularly noticeable in the aroma; spice dominates and the tea is less noticeable. I'm not sure where the tea is from but the tea seems more like an Assam than like any other Indian teas. There's a bit of a meta...
