Organic Assam Breakfast from Divinitea

Style: Assam – Region: Assam, India

70 / 100 Aroma: 7/10 Flavor: 4/5 Value: 3/5
Feb. 22nd, 2014

This is a bold, rich Assam, malty, strong flavored without being overly harsh. Perhaps slightly less edgy than average for an Assam of this strength, and this could be either an asset or a downside, depending on what you are looking for.

I find this tea is able to be brewed with more leaf than I normally use for an...

Organic Earl Grey from Divinitea

Style: Earl Grey Tea – Region: Blend

73 / 100 Aroma: 7/10 Flavor: 4/5 Value: 4/5
Feb. 22nd, 2014

A medium-bodied Earl Grey, tending slightly towards the perfumey side of aroma, less towards citrus. The base tea is rich and malty, and brews a clear red-orange liquor.

Light to moderate bitterness; I get the sense that that there's less of the fresh, biting bitterness coming from the bergamot, and more of a muted...

Organic English Breakfast from Divinitea

Style: English Breakfast – Region: Blend

70 / 100 Aroma: 7/10 Flavor: 4/5 Value: 3/5
Aug. 27th, 2012

A robust, good-quality English Breakfast tea with a quality slightly suggestive of Yunnan black teas.

The large, mostly whole leaves infuse quite slowly, but this tea becomes quite strong if you let it steep long enough. Moderate bitterness, full-bodied, not too astringent.

I would be curious to learn what goes ...

Organic/Biodynamic Darjeeling Autumnal from Divinitea

Style: Darjeeling Autumnal Flush – Region: Darjeeling, India

83 / 100 Aroma: 8/10 Flavor: 5/5 Value: 5/5
Aug. 24th, 2012

I tend to love everything that comes out of Makaibari estate, and this tea is no exception. I still think I prefer their first flush and long-leaf greens, but this was another very good tea, and people who like darker black teas might actually prefer this one.

A fairly complex Darjeeling. Powerful grape-like aroma...

Ginger Lemon Mint from Divinitea

Style: Herbal Tea – Region: Blend

43 / 100 Aroma: 5/10 Flavor: 2/5 Value: 2/5
Mar. 23rd, 2012

Not what I expected; this herbal tea has a fair amount of hibiscus, giving it a deep purple color and tangy flavor. There is little lemon evident in the aroma.

I'm not a fan; it was too sour for me. I might have liked this one better had I been expecting the hibiscus...I sometimes rather like blends containing hib...

Organic Lavender Tea from Divinitea

Style: Flavored Black Tea – Region: Blend

63 / 100 Aroma: 6/10 Flavor: 4/5 Value: 3/5
Jul. 19th, 2011

A fairly robust, standard black tea with a strong, but not overpowering lavender presence. Lavender can tend to have a resinous quality, leaving a sticky astringency on the palate; this tea has none of this potential flaw, which I am grateful for. It is quite balanced too, the base tea's aroma and flavor definitely c...

Mayan Chai from Divinitea

Style: Chai / Spiced Tea – Region: Blend

53 / 100 Aroma: 5/10 Flavor: 4/5 Value: 2/5
Jul. 12th, 2011

Aroma mostly of vanilla and spice, with nutmeg and cinnamon dominant. Full-bodied, and with some strong black tea character, but with the spice dominating. Slightly tannic finish. I like the flavor more than the aroma.

I'm not crazy about this one, the creamy, vanilla qualities I find a bit strange. I also like ...

Organic Kukicha from Divinitea

Style: Hojicha – Region: Japan

67 / 100 Aroma: 6/10 Flavor: 4/5 Value: 4/5
Jun. 27th, 2011

Very creamy for this style. Compared to other roasted kukicha (kukicha+hojicha), this has a richer, more full-bodied character, but a milder roast. Aroma has tones of vanilla. Much more oolong-like than any other hojicha I have tried.
