Classic Mint (Egyptian Mint Herb Tea) from Novus Tea

Style: Peppermint Tea – Region: Egypt

50 / 100 Aroma: 10/10 Flavor: 4/5 Value: 2/5
Apr. 2nd, 2017

I agree 100% with Alex. I had this at a restaurant - and it is a mid-to-strong peppermint without being too strong/sharp. Not a candy-cane tea - might even have spearmint in there too? Can't tell.

Nope. Just checked the Bigelow website - it's 100% peppermint, which, indded, you can grow yourself. Cheaply.

Darjeeling Tea from Novus Tea

65 / 100 Aroma: 6/10 Flavor: 4/5 Value: 3/5
Apr. 2nd, 2017

Was offered NOVUS teas (by Bigeow) at a restaurant - comes in a silky sachet, wrapped in a sealed pouch. Very fresh tasting and deep, dark (much darker than other Darjeelings I have had) and steeped up quickly. I got 2 infusions from the bag in a large pot of water.

I am a Darjeeling drinker, so I was fine with ...

Mar. 7th, 2014

I have also never had Dragon Well Green Tea, but I have had several other Chinese Green teas so when I was given this tea by a friend, I just had to try it. I definitely enjoyed this tea, but I found that it seemed to lack a robustness that I personally enjoy. I think this is a tea that would be suitable to the novice ...

Jul. 27th, 2012

This is the first time I try Earl Grey tea. I liked the aroma and I enjoyed the taste after I added some sugar in the tea. I failed to smell or taste any bergamot inside though. general a good tea. but from the health perspective, since black tea is not the best choice in hot summer, I won't try it again till winter. l...

Organic Jasmine Green Tea from Novus Tea

77 / 100 Aroma: 8/10 Flavor: 3/5 Value: 4/5
Jul. 23rd, 2012

pros:
(1) fancier package than other tea bags I tried which are made of paper;
(2) organic... so I guess it's healthier.
(3) the smell is good. not too strong or too weak;

cons:
(1) the taste of the first cup is a bit too strong for me. I prefer the 2nd or 3rd cup of it when it's lighter.
(2)the caffeine doesn'...

I've never liked flavored teas, especially ones that taste like candy, such as this. I thought this tea was too sweet and could only drink part of my cup.

This tea had a light, slightly floral, aroma and a nice light taste to accompany it. Overall I thought this tea was refreshing and would drink it again.

I always love the smell of bergamot in Earl Grey and the dried leaf of this tea does not fail to deliver, although most of the aroma was lost after brewing. The additional malva flowers gave no new taste to me. Overall I thought this was a good, strong, Earl Grey, but nothing too exotic like the description suggests!...

Had this tea for the first time at an upscale restaurant, last night. I've been drinking Earl Grey for years. The malva flowers give this tea additional flavor that is exceptional.

This was a strong full-bodied black tea. It didn't have much of an aroma, but I liked its taste. Overall I'd drink it again but it won't be my staple black tea.

I don't like these sour fruit teas, and this one is no exception. I do, however, prefer it slightly to the Wild Encounter Herb Tea (berry flavored) from Novus.

Although rather similar to Wild Encounter, this one is slightly less sour, and more sweet. Surprisingly sweet, naturally, without adding any sugar. Aroma ...

Apr. 10th, 2012

Usually I don't like flavored tea, so I was surprised to find that I liked this one. The fruity taste wasn't as overbearing as most flavored teas that I've had and disliked, like Tazo Passion. While I won't be drinking this again based on personal preference, I'd recommend it to someone who wants to experiments with ...

I've never had Dragon Well Tea so I wasn't sure what to expect, but I ended up enjoying it. This tea was more herby or grassy than what I'm used to, but it wasn't overbearing. I thought it was pretty smooth and it didn't leave any strange aftertastes - although it's not my favorite I would drink this tea again!

I thought this tea was smooth, light, and didn't leave a noticeable aftertaste. I enjoyed the smell of this tea, while faint it had a nice floral fragrance. This was the first Jasmine tea I've tried, and I will definitely be having more in the future!

63 / 100 Aroma: 5/10 Flavor: 4/5 Value: 4/5
Mar. 26th, 2012

This tea is among the best decaffeinated pure black teas that I've tried, whether loose-leaf or from a tea bag.

Full-bodied, dark, strong but smooth and somewhat mellow. There is a vaguely keemun-like fruitiness.

I find it interesting that Novus also carries a caffeinated version of this tea, it allows me to com...

This tea is good. It has a really sweet, interesting flavor that blends really well. It tastes really smooth. I don't usually especially like floral teas, but in this case I think the flowers are a positive addition to the flavor. I added cream and sugar.

This tea is really good, if not oversteeped. I steeped it for 5 minutes and it was too bitter, but then I tried it again and I steeped it for 3 minutes, and it was perfect. I usually like strong tea, and it was strong enough. It didn't have a very distinctive aroma. I added cream and sugar.

Very fresh, crisp peppermint aroma. Clean but without being flat. Little of the complex herbaceous aroma that I like though, in peppermint. Strong but without being candy-like.

I tried this mainly to try it, peppermint grows out of control in this climate and I'm never short of it...so I wouldn't buy this (or any...

I find it a bit strange that Novus offers both a caffeinated and decaffeinated Ceylon tea from Kenilworth estate. Usually, companies do not wish to draw attention to the difference between a caffeinated tea and its decaffeinated counterpart, as the decaf tea usually pales in comparison. But, in this case, Novus boldl...

This is the best Jasmine tea I've had from a tea bag. It is better than a lot of loose-leaf jasmine tea I've tried.

Exceptionally smooth for a jasmine. Floral without being perfumey. Base tea is vegetal and mellow like a very good pouchong / bao zhong. The base tea has a strong floral character and it's hard to ...

This tea is okay. I'm not sure I like Darjeeling very much. I'm starting to think I don't, in general. It has a weird flavor that I don't particularly like. This one isn't too bad compared to other ones I've tried, though. I drank it with cream and sugar.
