Earl Greyer Decaf from Republic of Tea

Style: Earl Grey Tea – Region: Blend

40 / 100 Aroma: 5/10 Flavor: 2/5 Value: 1/5
Jan. 3rd, 2015

Sampled in a Panera bread in suburban Delaware. Worth trying, but I wouldn't get it again; I tend not to like decaf teas, and I thought this was towards the lower end of decaf teas I've tried.

The tea bag sinks to the bottom of the cup and requires stirring to mix up the flavor. Pleasantly aromatic, and smell like...

40 / 100 Aroma: 3/10 Flavor: 3/5 Value: 1/5
Mar. 23rd, 2014

I must preface this review by noting that I tend not to like blueberry-flavored anything. Why am I trying this then? I like trying new things, and I periodically like trying things that I'm expecting not to like, because sometimes I am surprised.

With this one, I wasn't surprised.

The tea bag (and brewed cup) h...

Good Hope Vanilla Red Tea from Republic of Tea

Style: Flavored Rooibos – Region: ?????

60 / 100 Aroma: 5/10 Flavor: 4/5 Value: 4/5
Sep. 20th, 2013

A classic rooibos-vanilla blend with a strong presence of both rooibos and vanilla, and no other flavors.

There's a good balance of rooibos and vanilla, although I'd prefer a little less of the "cream flavoring"...this smelled a bit too much like cream soda for me. Flavor is subdued...a slight muted bitterness. Le...

Ha Dong Bohea Green Tea from Republic of Tea

Style: Green Tea – Region: Hadong, South Korea

92 / 100 Aroma: 10/10 Flavor: 5/5 Value: 4/5
Aug. 12th, 2013

I thought this tea to be delightful and very different. It was not really at all like a typical green tea...much more like a green Taiwanese oolong, and in some ways almost suggestive of some aged Pu-erh.

Dry leaf has a most peculiar aroma: highly vegetal and slightly nutty, perhaps fruity too.

Upon brewing, the...

Temi SFTGFOP1 First Flush Black Tea from Republic of Tea

Style: Black Tea – Region: Sikkim, India

87 / 100 Aroma: 8/10 Flavor: 5/5 Value: 4/5
Aug. 7th, 2013

A delightful tea of top quality, also somewhat different and unusual, darker in character than Darjeeling first flush.

Dry leaf has a light, fruity smell which is almost slightly more reminiscent of some very high grades of Chinese tea than like any Indian teas I've tried.

I found this tea drastically changed cha...

British Breakfast from Republic of Tea

Jul. 29th, 2013

I was actually quite interested to finally sample this tea, as Republic of Tea seems more oriented towards blends and flavored teas, but I tend to like pure teas best.

I found this to be an average black tea in tea bags. Nothing really jumped out at me. There were fewer objectionable qualities (less harshness) tha...

Ginger Peach Red Tea from Republic of Tea

Style: Flavored Rooibos – Region: Blend

70 / 100 Aroma: 7/10 Flavor: 4/5 Value: 5/5
Nov. 28th, 2011

I like this tea substantially better than the black tea versions of it, especially the decaf one. The aroma is very similar to the decaf ginger peach, but I think more pleasing and more complex, owing to the replacement with the rather aroma-less decaffeinated black tea with the natural rooibos.

It's not the best q...

Orange Ginger Mint from Republic of Tea

Style: Herbal Tea – Region: ?????

77 / 100 Aroma: 8/10 Flavor: 4/5 Value: 5/5
Apr. 28th, 2010

This is by far my favorite tea from Republic of Tea yet. Strong and complex aroma, mostly herbaceous with a bit of spice: thyme is dominant, but with a lot of other things going on...the ginger and anise are also particularly noticeable. Very full-bodied--among the richest herbal teas I've tried. Close to my ideal a...

get relaxed - No.14 from Republic of Tea

Style: Wellness Tea / Medicinal Tea – Region: Blend

67 / 100 Aroma: 8/10 Flavor: 4/5 Value: 3/5
Apr. 1st, 2010

I found this herbal tea to be very pleasant to drink; the aroma is complex...there's a noticeable lavender presence but it doesn't overwhelm the other ingredients, which mostly impart a rich, earthy quality. I can't really notice the rooibos distinctly though, even though it's listed as the first ingredient. Aroma-wi...

Feb. 6th, 2010

I had this from a teabag in Panera bread. It could be that it wasn't terribly fresh (I wouldn't put that past Panera) but I was disappointed by the weak black tea presence in this tea. Some people might like that though as this tea is very smooth and has very little bitterness or astringency. I took it as having no ...

The People's Green Tea from Republic of Tea

Style: Green Tea – Region: ?????

43 / 100 Aroma: 4/10 Flavor: 3/5 Value: 2/5
Dec. 8th, 2009

This tea had a muted quality to it, although it had a bolder tea presence than Republic's flavored green and white teas. Fairly smooth flavor, a few unpleasant qualities to the aroma, but not very bitter. Weak, overall, not very fresh tasting.

Blackberry Sage from Republic of Tea

Style: Flavored Black Tea – Region: Blend

40 / 100 Aroma: 4/10 Flavor: 2/5 Value: 3/5
Nov. 13th, 2009

A very soft and mild tea; slightly sweet, very little bitterness. Aroma is mostly of blackberry, with only a hint of sage or tea. I was expecting more bite (sage tea on its own is so strongly aromatic!) and was disappointed. Overall this tea was much too weak for me.

Nov. 10th, 2009

This is among my favorite teas from Republic of tea, and also the strongest tasting of their teas that I have tried. The bergamot is not totally overpowering...and unlike other flavored black teas from this company I find there's a stronger black tea presence in the aroma.

My only complaint is that this tea becomes...

Oct. 5th, 2009

I really like this tea. Very peachy with a hint of ginger and only a weak presence of black tea--but that's typical for a decaf tea. While I don't particularly like the black tea, the ginger is noticeable, which I like, and I tend to like the quality of the peach aroma...it's strong and fruity while seeming fairly na...

Asian Jasmine 100% White Tea from Republic of Tea

Style: Jasmine Tea – Region: Fujian, China

47 / 100 Aroma: 3/10 Flavor: 4/5 Value: 4/5
Oct. 5th, 2009

This is a very simple tea...the aroma is un-jasmine-like...more fruity. The flavor is weak but very smooth and there is some body to this tea. Pleasant but unremarkable. Reasonably priced.
