Darjeeling (Sachets) from Hampstead Tea

Style: Darjeeling Black Tea – Region: Darjeeling, India

75 / 100 Aroma: 7/10 Flavor: 4/5 Value: 5/5
Jul. 30th, 2018

This actually tastes like Darjeeling: the fruity, woody notes are similar to the loose leaf Darjeeling teas I've had, and it even has that smooth muscatel flavor (or at least the flavor I taste in most Darjeeling tea that I associate with the word "muscatel"). I guess this shouldn't have surprised me as much as it did...

Feb. 11th, 2016

My daughter brought this tea back from a trip to England, so my "value" rating may be biased by the excessive price she paid in a souvenir store.

In short: not the best nor the worst tea I've had...tolerable..slightly below average. The flavor isn't bad, but isn't strong enough, and it just doesn't have a lot of ...

May. 13th, 2013

I wasn't terribly impressed with this one.

The base tea tasted a little bland and generic to me. Hampstead does not share where the base tea is from, but it tastes more like Ceylon tea than anything else. The bergamot presence is light. Some slightly odd tones in the aroma, including black pepper and something su...

Darjeeling (Sachets) from Hampstead Tea

70 / 100 Aroma: 6/10 Flavor: 4/5 Value: 4/5
Mar. 6th, 2013

A very good, easy going black tea. Not a very noticeable aroma, either in the bag or steeped, but still there and akin to most black teas with a fruity hint. Taken with a decent amount of sugar, it was still easy to discern a sweetness to the tea without any bite and mild astringency.

Mar. 6th, 2013

I really enjoyed this tea! I found it's aroma and taste to both be floral, light, and a bit sweet. As someone who usually sticks to english breakfast or earl grey, I found this delicate flavor refreshing. I drank it with milk, but I think it would have been perfect with a touch of honey. I even steeped it slightly long...

Imperial Assam (Tea Bags) from Hampstead Tea

80 / 100 Aroma: 7/10 Flavor: 4/5 Value: 5/5
Feb. 26th, 2013

I think I've found my breakfast tea, or in any case a certain kind of breakfast tea for a certain kind of mood. I think I've mentioned in other reviews that I tend to like my breakfast teas sweet, strong, and milky: my taste buds aren't so good at subtlety early in the morning.

The tea doesn't smell particularly str...

This tea is pretty good. It's smooth. I added cream and sugar. I found it confusing that it was listed as a sachet when it's really a teabag.

47 / 100 Aroma: 5/10 Flavor: 3/5 Value: 3/5
Nov. 15th, 2012

Brews a very dark color, but flavor is surprisingly light (although still stronger than most light-colored teas). Tastes a lot more like high-grown Ceylon tea than like most Assam.

Aroma suggestive of spices and sweet rice, with quite a strong wood presence (like oak and cedar, unlike most teas). Peppery and punge...

Black Saffron from Hampstead Tea

Style: Flavored Black Tea – Region: Blend

77 / 100 Aroma: 7/10 Flavor: 4/5 Value: 5/5
Oct. 30th, 2012

A peculiar blend of a light black tea with saffron, a spice not normally associated with tea. I liked it, but this is not a tea for everyone.

Brews a golden cup with a noticeable saffron aroma. Light, but a bit edgy. Unusually bitter for such a light-bodied tea--much more sharp tasting than even the more bitter D...

This tea is surprisingly good compared to this brand's other teas. It's strong and not too bitter. I added cream and sugar.

This doesn't taste much like Earl Grey. I think the bitterness of the tea dominates the flavor. I don't like it much. I added cream and sugar.

I didn't like this tea much. It doesn't have much of an aroma at all, and the flavor isn't very strong. I added cream and sugar.

Oct. 6th, 2012

I liked this tea. I thought it was pretty typical for a black tea, but sometimes that is all I need. It had a subtle flavor and the texture was really smooth. The price seems pretty reasonable to me. This is the first time I had Hampstead Tea, and after having this tea, I would buy from them again.

Oct. 4th, 2012

I fell in love with Hampstead tea's loose-leaf Darjeeling some time ago, and it was not before picking up some samples at World Tea East this year that I had an opportunity to try any of their tea bags.

This is called a "sachet" but it's not a pyramid bag--just a humble tea bag. The tea inside is pretty broken up, ...

English Breakfast from Hampstead Tea

63 / 100 Aroma: 5/10 Flavor: 3/5 Value: 4/5
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...

88 / 100 Aroma: 8/10 Flavor: 5/5 Value: 5/5
Feb. 6th, 2010

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...
