Rock Creek Red Chai from Capital Teas

Style: Rooibos Chai / Spiced Rooibos – Region: Blend

73 / 100 Aroma: 8/10 Flavor: 4/5 Value: 3/5
Apr. 9th, 2014

An intriguing blend, very different from the other two examples of Rooibos chai that I've tried, the ones from Culinary Teas and from Wegmans. The final of three Capital Teas samples that my parents were given as a gift, which they let me try. Excellent with milk, not so much without.

Dry leaf smells intensely of ...

Capital Breakfast Organic from Capital Teas

Style: Black Tea – Region: Blend

98 / 100 Aroma: 10/10 Flavor: 5/5 Value: 5/5
Apr. 9th, 2014

Wow. An exceptional tea. This was definitely the best breakfast tea I've ever tried, I'd go farther and say it was the best of any blended tea. This was one of three teas in a sampler pack that my parents received as a gift, and I'm glad they gave me some to try.

Dry leaf, which is a mix of different leaf styles ...

Cherry Blossom Rose Organic from Capital Teas

Style: Flavored Green Tea – Region: Blend

27 / 100 Aroma: 3/10 Flavor: 1/5 Value: 1/5
Apr. 8th, 2014

A disappointing blend that just didn't seem to work. This was one of three samples my parents received as a gift. I had the opportunity to sample them recently.

One of my mild pet peeves is when a company labels something "cherry blossom" and then it tastes like cherry fruit, rather than blossoms.

I opened the ...

Mexican Mango Chili Mate from Capital Teas

Style: Miscellaneous Blend – Region: Blend

60 / 100 Aroma: 5/10 Flavor: 4/5 Value: 2/5
Jan. 9th, 2014

This was something completely new and different, unlike any other tea, mate, or herbal blend that I've tried previously. An old review that I only am posting now; I sampled this at the Philadelphia Coffee and Tea Festival.

There's a slight kick from the chili. Keep in mind, I'm someone who LOVES spicy food, stuff ...

Talk of the Town from Capital Teas

Style: Flavored Black Tea – Region: Blend

60 / 100 Aroma: 6/10 Flavor: 3/5 Value: 3/5
Jan. 9th, 2014

I'm not a huge fan of orange spice teas, but this is my favorite example of one yet.

This was a classic orange spice tea blend, a lot like Market Spice's Cinnamon Orange, or a more refined variant of Bigelow's Constant Comment. If you like either of those teas, I'd recommend this one.

I wish I had had the opport...

O Christmas Tea from Capital Teas

Style: Flavored Green Tea – Region: Blend

47 / 100 Aroma: 5/10 Flavor: 2/5 Value: 2/5
Jan. 9th, 2014

Tasted a pre-brewed sample at the Philadelphia Coffee and Tea Festival; I have been rather late at posting my review, but I wrote up the review some time ago.

Aroma is intensely of sweet almonds, like marzipan candy, but flavor is sour, and there is considerable astringency.

I tasted the almond most of all, and d...
