Gunpowder Green Tea (Loose) from Pure Leaf

Style: Gunpowder Green Tea – Region: Indonesia

44 / 100 Aroma: 4/10 Flavor: 2/5 Value: 4/5

This is one of the cheapest loose leaf teas I've ever seen, so I'm trying not to judge it to harshly, but it's just not very good. It's smoky, of course, but not too much if the temperature isn't too high. The overall flavor is vegetal, tasting like cooked carrots and green beans to me. It's pretty sour and astringent,...

Iced Black Tea with Raspberry from Pure Leaf

Style: Fruit Black Tea – Region: Kenya

68 / 100 Aroma: 8/10 Flavor: 3/5 Value: 3/5

The dry tea in the sachets is broken, but in decent-sized pieces. Pieces of hibiscus flower are apparent. The sachets smell like dried raspberries with an additional herbal, leafy scent.

Adding the water intensifies the raspberry. It doesn't quite smell like fresh raspberries, but it doesn't smell artificial, either...

The plastic sachets of tea are transparent enough to see the tea leaves and some of the flavorings. The leaves are obviously broken, but the pieces are the same size as in the Pure Leaf loose leaf offerings. Looking closely, I can identify pieces of hibiscus and orange peel.

The dry tea smells overwhelmingly of fres...

Iced Classic Black Tea (Loose) from Pure Leaf

Style: Black Tea – Region: Kenya

72 / 100 Aroma: 7/10 Flavor: 3/5 Value: 4/5

The dry leaf is floral and malty, just as Pure Leaf and the other reviewer describe it. Once brewed, there's a hint of dried fruit as well as wood; otherwise it's pretty similar to the dry aroma. Despite this tea coming from Kenya, the taste reminds me a bit of all three of the main tea growing regions of India: the ma...

I'd never tasted Kenyan tea that wasn't part of a blend from multiple sources, so I bought a jar of the Pure Leaf. Even though this tea is labelled for use as iced tea, I'm drinking it hot (four minutes in boiling water). This is still the only tea solely from Kenya that I've tried, so I don't know how much of the flav...
