Black Tea from Farmer Brothers

Style: Black Tea – Region: ?????

71 / 100 Aroma: 7/10 Flavor: 4/5 Value: 5/5
Mar. 27th, 2019

I was surprised off the bat by the unexpected aroma from the brewing tea. Instead of an Assam or Ceylon blend, it smells like inexpensive Yunnan teabags like Foojoy. It's smoky, earthy and woodsy.

The flavor reinforces my guess that this blend is predominantly Chinese. Astringent without bitterness, this tea tastes ...

Misty Mint from Farmer Brothers

Style: Herbal Tea – Region: Blend

45 / 100 Aroma: 5/10 Flavor: 3/5 Value: 2/5
Feb. 28th, 2019

This blend is really quite bland, especially so for mint. The menthol coolness is there, but it really tastes more herbal than minty. I also taste the "pepper" flavor that the previous reviewer noted, so it wasn't just a fluke or something.

I wouldn't think that there are enough ingredients in this blend to mess up,...

Lively Lemon from Farmer Brothers

Style: Herbal Tea – Region: Blend

55 / 100 Aroma: 6/10 Flavor: 3/5 Value: 3/5
Feb. 26th, 2019

This is Farmer Brothers' version of Bigelow's I Love Lemon. The ingredient list is identical.

When dry, the tea smells mostly like peppermint. When steeping, the aroma of lemon oil comes out and is mainly what the tea smells like. The lemon herbs (lemon grass and lemon verbena) are the main flavors, giving the brew ...

Enchanting Moments from Farmer Brothers

Style: Chamomile Blend – Region: Blend

70 / 100 Aroma: 7/10 Flavor: 4/5 Value: 4/5
Feb. 5th, 2019

I'm stuck in a hotel for few days for a conference, but the bright side is finding a brand of food service teas that I've never tasted.

I decided to make a cup of Enchanting Moments before bed. It's a spot-on mimic of Bigelow's Sweet Dreams herbal tea. The main flavors are chamomile, peppermint and spearmint.

I l...

Black Tea from Farmer Brothers

Style: Black Tea – Region: ?????

33 / 100 Aroma: 3/10 Flavor: 2/5 Value: 1/5
Nov. 27th, 2018

A very strong black tea that didn't have much going for it other than its strength.

Served at the Gander's Family Restaurant in Luna Pier, MI (super cheap diner with pretty good but very basic diner food! I recommend it more than this tea!) Tea isn't usually the strong suits of these types of restaurants, but I do t...

Misty Mint from Farmer Brothers

Style: Herbal Tea – Region: Blend

63 / 100 Aroma: 7/10 Flavor: 3/5 Value: 4/5
Aug. 4th, 2018

The ingredients list only states peppermint, lemongrass and spearmint. So why do I smell and taste a dab of black pepper in this? Personally, I'm not complaining; spicy teas appeal to me. Yet I wonder if this sensation stems from a systematic characteristic of how one of the listed ingredients is grown or processed,...

Green Tea from Farmer Brothers

Style: Green Tea – Region: ?????

73 / 100 Aroma: 8/10 Flavor: 4/5 Value: 4/5
Jun. 30th, 2018

This probably is the best food-service green tea I've had so far, overall. Travelers should like this if the lodging or conference offers it, as it is comparable to or better than some common name-brand greens. You just need to be patient with it while brewing, and/or use one of the smaller sippy-cups these places te...

English Tradition from Farmer Brothers

Style: Black Tea – Region: ?????

77 / 100 Aroma: 7/10 Flavor: 4/5 Value: 5/5
May. 20th, 2018

I couldn't tell if English Tradition was an English Breakfast an English Afternoon, so against such traditions, I drank it in the evening in America.

Of the three black teas from Farmer Brothers (FB) that I have reviewed, all of which were surprisingly tolerable, this product has been the best across the board. A...

Earl Grey from Farmer Brothers

Style: Earl Grey Tea – Region: Blend

61 / 100 Aroma: 6/10 Flavor: 4/5 Value: 4/5
Apr. 8th, 2018

Farmer Brothers apparently uses the same relatively rich base tea as for their plain black offering, which similarly brews up dark and tastes stronger than most brand-name bagged teas. As such, you can pluck a bag or three off your hotel's or conference's tea table with confidence you'll get a passable, perhaps even r...

Chamomile from Farmer Brothers

Style: Pure Chamomile Tea – Region: ?????

43 / 100 Aroma: 3/10 Flavor: 3/5 Value: 3/5
Mar. 6th, 2018

In my experience, chamomile shouldn't stand out much one way or another most of the time. A rich, deeply golden cup with delightfully robust, sweet, rich flavor is rare, as is the moribund, stale and/or flavorless kind. While not a turn-off, per se, the Farmer Brothers version leans weak and flat. The aromas, whethe...

Orange Bliss from Farmer Brothers

Style: Flavored Rooibos – Region: Blend

46 / 100 Aroma: 5/10 Flavor: 2/5 Value: 3/5
Mar. 5th, 2018

My first impression of this tea's flavor was shockingly wretched: an overwhelming impression of stale coffee and mud, with some orangey/cinnamon hint buried beneath. I asked, "How can this tea possibly be so nasty with such a delicious-looking ingredients list?" It contains: rooibos, cinnamon, ginger root, orange pe...

Black Tea from Farmer Brothers

Aug. 24th, 2017

I found a bag of this food-service/wholesale product at a motel in southern Utah, and decided to take it home for this review given the poor water quality in that town. I'm glad, because my preconceived notion about the weakness and unoriginality of food-service teas—especially considering the plainness and dated st...
