Berry Rooibos from Epi Tea

Style: Fruit Rooibos – Region: ?????

60 / 100 Aroma: 7/10 Flavor: 4/5 Value: 2/5
Jan. 3rd, 2013

A pleasant, creamy and smooth berry-flavored herbal blend.

I thought this was a very balanced blend, but it was on the weak side. I think Epi Tea could get away with using about twice as much leaf.

Thankfully, this wasn't too sour. A lot of berry blends that go heavy on the hibiscus taste too sour to me. This ...

Irish Breakfast from Epi Tea

Style: Irish Breakfast – Region: Blend

67 / 100 Aroma: 8/10 Flavor: 3/5 Value: 2/5
Aug. 17th, 2012

Tea bag has little aroma, but upon brewing the aroma really emerges...rich, malty, and complex.

Brews a very dark cup, very full-bodied and thick. Although this is among the most full-bodied teas I've sampled in quite a long time, and the aroma is powerful, the flavor is surprisingly weak, especially for this style...

Lavender Earl Grey from Epi Tea

Style: Flavored Black Tea – Region: Blend

67 / 100 Aroma: 7/10 Flavor: 4/5 Value: 2/5
Aug. 16th, 2012

Aroma is very complex: the inclusion of lavender with a robust, malty base tea produces an illusion of spice, suggestive of mace, allspice, or cinnamon, and a rich, bready quality. There's a lacey sort of floral and fruity quality, almost suggesti...

Blood Orange Rooibos from Epi Tea

Style: Fruit Rooibos – Region: Blend

60 / 100 Aroma: 6/10 Flavor: 4/5 Value: 2/5
Aug. 2nd, 2012

Blood Oranges are one of my two favorite fruits, and I was looking forward to this rooibos. Unfortunately, I don't really notice the distinction between this and a regular orange-flavored rooibos; the blood orange may be more a reference to the deep, blood-like color of the rooibos than to the flavoring.

Brewed as ...

Serene Chai from Epi Tea

Style: Chai / Spiced Tea – Region: Blend

67 / 100 Aroma: 7/10 Flavor: 4/5 Value: 2/5
Jul. 25th, 2012

I had the opportunity to sample this tea before Epi Tea launched. Thank you, Kyle Ryan, for the samples!

This is a chai blend containing large pieces of broken-leaf orthodox tea, whole spices, and flavorings. Thankfully, the flavorings are subtle and are not overwhelming.

The instructions recommend me to brew t...
