Citrus Mint from Tea Forte

Style: Herbal Tea – Region: Blend

57 / 100 Aroma: 7/10 Flavor: 3/5 Value: 2/5
Aug. 12th, 2016

I am not a fan of mint teas - but the citrus/orange-y notes in Tea Forte's cute little sachet made this one palatable. I recommend steeping longer than 3-4 minutes and then chilling and service over ice. I did not care for it hot. As with all Tea Forte - you are paying for packaging and they make great gifts.

White Ginger Pear from Tea Forte

Style: Fruit White Tea – Region: Blend

67 / 100 Aroma: 8/10 Flavor: 4/5 Value: 2/5
Jul. 26th, 2016

As with many tea Forte - it's all about packaging and presentation. tea Forte is my go-to when I want a showy gift - but the teas themselves are not the best ever - but they are very good. This one - Ginger Pear (More like Fruit and Pear) is tasty and sweet - good hot or iced but you must steep it at least 4-5 minute...

Estate Darjeeling from Tea Forte

Style: Darjeeling Black Tea – Region: Darjeeling, India

63 / 100 Aroma: 7/10 Flavor: 4/5 Value: 2/5
Jul. 20th, 2016

With Tea Forte you are paying for cutesy packaging - and these are terrific for gift giving - hostess gifts, bridal showers etc. The tea itself is usually good but not mind blowing and their "estate" darjeeling is good. Very nice, actually, and I am a BIG darjeeling fan (The first flush from Republic of tea is terrif...

Cherry Marzipan (Skin Smart) from Tea Forte

Style: Flavored Green Tea – Region: Blend

57 / 100 Aroma: 7/10 Flavor: 3/5 Value: 2/5
Mar. 14th, 2016

Uber-sweet - and a bit cloying for me - but my kid loves it for whatever reason and the packaging (which makes it pricey) is cute and giftable. With Tea Forte - it's all about the packaging and sometimes the actual teas are "just OK". A few are good. You have to try and see which you prefer. Expensive, but giftable...

China Gunpowder from Tea Forte

Style: Gunpowder Green Tea – Region: Zhejiang, China

67 / 100 Aroma: 6/10 Flavor: 4/5 Value: 3/5
Nov. 23rd, 2015

I like Tea Forte - and their packaging is excellent. But it's what's inside that sachet that counts - and this Green "Gunpowder" style tea is delicious with a mild, (generic?) grassy flavor that I happen to enjoy. Is it the best green ever? Not by a long-shot - but it is solid and easy to drink (I do it unsweetened,...

English Breakfast from Tea Forte

Style: Assam – Region: Assam, India

63 / 100 Aroma: 6/10 Flavor: 4/5 Value: 2/5
Aug. 20th, 2015

Tea Forte is all about packaging and presentation. That said - the actual teas are pretty darned good and their English Breakfast (I got it is part of a variety pack) is just fine. Brews up quickly and RICH and dark - you can get 2 maybe even 3 (although the 3rd will be weaker) infusions from one "elegant sachet".

Earl Grey from Tea Forte

Style: Earl Grey Tea – Region: Blend

60 / 100 Aroma: 7/10 Flavor: 3/5 Value: 2/5
Aug. 19th, 2015

I loathe Earl Grey - but that cool little sachet makes it all worthwhile. (Not?). Smells of Bergamot (Duh! It's Earl Grey) and steeps up strong and you can easily get 2 infusions per sachet. Pricey but if you have an earl grey lover in the family Tea Forte products make a nice, classy gift. There are many other TF...

Black Currant from Tea Forte

Style: Fruit Black Tea – Region: Blend

73 / 100 Aroma: 9/10 Flavor: 4/5 Value: 2/5
May. 13th, 2013

Super expensive (as all the cutesy-packaged Tea Forte teas are!) but so deliciously fruity and easy to drink. (You can get 2 cups easily out of a bag - so keep that in mind. Needs no sweetener. Very good for first-time tea drinkers and the adorable packaging (and high price) make it a suitable hostess gift. Fun. (S...

Jasmine Green from Tea Forte

Style: Jasmine Tea – Region: China

73 / 100 Aroma: 9/10 Flavor: 4/5 Value: 2/5
May. 4th, 2013

Super over-priced but the cute packaging is fun. This is one of my favorite from Tea Forte - but I am a huge Jasmine/Green fan in general. Richly scented with jasmine so it is floral and sweet smelling. Very good hot.
