Assam from Two Leaves and a Bud

Style: Assam – Region: Assam, India

90 / 100 Aroma: 8/10 Flavor: 5/5 Value: 4/5
Aug. 15th, 2017

I'm kind of surprised the reviews are not better. I absolutely love this tea. The price is high $8 for 15 bags but I still buy it and consider it a luxury. For a commercially produced, ready-to-go tea bag, I think it's a great choice.

Gen Mai Cha from Two Leaves and a Bud

Mar. 14th, 2016

Just OK - and I did not get the "Honey Smacks" note - but there is an odd sweetness to this rice/grain tea. I generally love Gen Mai Cha - but 2 leaves version is just fair. Fortunately it is not too expensive - and I was able to try it at a local coffee/tea shop so now I know not to buy a whole box. Not bad - but t...

I hate Peppermint tea - but this one seems to be a very nice,. smooth one. Smells pure and minty - cool and fresh. All organic. Simple. Good for after dinner. Might be good over ice as well.

Oct. 20th, 2015

My nose needs improvement, I realize, but I smelled cinnamon as the dominant spice. Can cloves, which my fellow reviewers have noticed playing such a dominant role in this tea, mimic cinnamon to such a great degree? I don't know. Whether cinnamon or clove, one note drowns out all others. We live in a world where good c...

Chamomile from Two Leaves and a Bud

77 / 100 Aroma: 9/10 Flavor: 5/5 Value: 2/5
Jul. 13th, 2015

Wow, well, either chamomile is growing on me, or I've finally learned how to brew it. This one has a very strong (but not bitter) flavor. I heated up the water for one minute in a microwave before adding the sachet, and (based on the reviews below) kept the steep time shorter than normal. Once it looked sufficiently go...

Zesty! Not as complex or interesting as it could be, but quite nice. Then lemon and rooibos flavors go well together. Pricier than what I would like, but a nicely refreshing blend with a nice aroma.

Jun. 12th, 2015

Meh. To me, the orange flavor wasn't enough to compete with the bitter tea. I'm not particularly into in orange alone as a flavoring, anyway. I saw fannings at the bottom which I suspect were increasing the bitterness over time. Adding honey helped, but overall this tea simply isn't worth the price.

Darjeeling from Two Leaves and a Bud

Style: Darjeeling Black Tea – Region: Darjeeling, India

77 / 100 Aroma: 8/10 Flavor: 5/5 Value: 2/5
Jun. 9th, 2015

In my opinion, among the best offerings by Two Leaves Tea. This is a very well done Darjeeling. A bit pricy for bagged tea, but worth it when you're in the mood to splurge. It doesn't need a long steep, either. Mmmmmm. It's really hitting the spot tonight.

Feb. 14th, 2015

After reading the reviews that said the flavor was a bit weak, I steeped mine until the water turned cold and added a bit of sugar and milk. I think the longer brewing time helped the weak flavor. It was pretty good, though a bit astringent at the bottom of my mug. The aroma is awesome, but the flavor just doesn't live...

Oct. 5th, 2014

Not bad for a black tea. Detected a little bitterness in the finish, but it wasn't off putting. Also smelled and tasted subtly raisin-like. Not bad, but not outstanding and not my personal favorite style of tea--especially given that it's rather pricey.

I have mixed feelings about this one. As a fan of fruity, tart, and hibiscus-based teas, I feel like I should like this one more than I did. There was nothing bad about it; for me the flavors seemed balanced, not overly intense. But at the same time, I don't find it brag worthy. Certainly worth a shot if you like herba...

53 / 100 Aroma: 5/10 Flavor: 3/5 Value: 2/5
Oct. 1st, 2014

As a pure white tea, this wasn't bad, but it wasn't a flavor to get me excited. It didn't taste bitter to me, which was a plus, but overall it was fairly nondescript. (Or maybe I'm missing nuances because I need to internalize the language of tea better?)

I'm not sure what else to say about it. I'm sure people who p...

I actually found this tea to be refreshing and clean. It's simple, but not in a way that's bitter or at all unpleasant. I brewed it a short time at 175 °F and was pleasantly surprised by how very drinkable it is. The aroma is very light and the infusion is a pale green. Its a bit plain by itself, so I recommend drinki...

Based on the deliciously spicy dry aroma I was very excited to try this tea. Unfortunately, the flavor was much more flat, weak, and less interesting. How unfortunate.

On the plus side, it makes for a solid latte. So if you like your tea with milk and perhaps a bit of sugar, this may well be a favorite cup for you. ...

Aug. 18th, 2014

Not bad, but not my type of tea. The bergamot flavor is very muted and I do taste some bitterness (even though I tried to prevent this with a relatively short steeping).

For my second cup I added hazelnut creamer and this improved the tea immensely. So if you like a creamy tea, this isn't a bad base, but as a genera...

slightly spicy unique smell...can get a hint of the lemongrass....flavor has the lemongrass come out more...only a slight difference from the purer lemongrass I've had...I guess that's the rooibos...decent..

Method: 1 tea bag in 8 oz at 205 degrees for 3 min.

Impressions: The color was lovely and the aroma was nice, but the tartness of the hibiscus was overpowering. After adding about a tsp. of rock sugar, this was much better. Even with the sugar to soften things, I didn't taste anything past the hibiscus.

So here I am, smelling recollecting. But when? Why? It's familiar, but where? Maybe before the summer gets warm and the rain just barely lingers on the growing grass. Its musky and sweet, fresh, like a Hyacinth flower in rich soil.

Its crisp, it reminds me of weddings, bouquets, lemon cake, and vanilla icing. It mel...

I am enjoying the Organic Assam from 2 leaves (and a bud) - it brews up strong but not bitter - very "clean" tasting and great for breakfast in Winter. Delicious and easy to drink.

As with all the teabags from 2 Leaves - it is over priced.

I will start by saying right off, I am not a seasoned green tea drinker. I am learning. I found this at a local super market. Price was right, I felt, so I went for it. I will admit, I thought the packaging was 'cute', but the bag inside did rip easily as another reviewer noted, and was hard to keep the tea in. I ...

The aroma is lovely, you can certainly tell it is an Assam from the first sniff! Rich and malty. I was however, surprised by the amount of dust in the tea wrapper and then in my tea, I have not run into that before with this company's Assam.

The taste is quite good! Malty, rich, subtly sweet, and not at all bitter....
