Chamomile from Equal Exchange

Style: Pure Chamomile Tea – Region: Egypt

80 / 100 Aroma: 8/10 Flavor: 5/5 Value: 4/5
May. 3rd, 2017

Served in Brewed Awakenings coffee shop in Newark, DE.

This chamomile in a humble, flat teabag impressed me with its clean, crisp flavor and bright, fresh aroma. More floral than most chamomile, also fruity, suggesting apple. There is a noticeable absence of the typical bitter aftertaste as well, although the finish...

Organic Darjeeling Black Pyramid Tea from Equal Exchange

Style: Darjeeling Black Tea – Region: Darjeeling, India

80 / 100 Aroma: 7/10 Flavor: 5/5 Value: 4/5
Oct. 31st, 2009

Aroma spicy, unusually vegetal for a tea this dark, and unusually malty for a Darjeeling. Very interesting and complex! Dark liquor and tastes more like other black teas than most Darjeelings; I would not describe it as "golden" or "light". Remarkably bold and full-bodied and yet with little bitterness or astringenc...
