Organic Ryokucha Green Tea from Samovar Tea Lounge

Style: Genmaicha – Region: Japan

80 / 100 Aroma: 8/10 Flavor: 5/5 Value: 2/5
Mar. 13th, 2014

This tea really grew on me, and by the end I adored it. The sample I got - which was enough for one cup - suggested brewing it very quickly, just 30-45 seconds, with water just below the boiling point. In retrospect I think that following those instructions would have worked out well, but I'm paranoid about using water...

Organic Ryokucha Green Tea from Samovar Tea Lounge

Style: Genmaicha – Region: Japan

73 / 100 Aroma: 8/10 Flavor: 4/5 Value: 2/5
Sep. 26th, 2013

Dry leaf has a potent, cereal-like aroma.

First infusion brews a hazy, pale golden cup...it almost looks like there's a tiny bit of iridescent dust on top of the tea's surface.

Flavor is mild but delightful...sweet, crisp, and with a hint of a fruitiness that I can only describe as reminiscent of cola. It sort o...

Breakfast Blend Organic Black Tea from Samovar Tea Lounge

Style: Black Tea – Region: Blend

83 / 100 Aroma: 8/10 Flavor: 5/5 Value: 4/5
Oct. 20th, 2011

Nice smooth, full bodied, malty, and a light briskness. Reminds me very much of Rishi Tea's Golden Yunnan Organic Black Tea, but a bit lighter on peppery tones. It is a beautiful blend of Dian Hong style tea (see http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Dian_hong_tea) mixing whole leaf top-quality tea and a high content of fine go...

Ancient Gold Organic Black Tea from Samovar Tea Lounge

Oct. 15th, 2011

Jingmai Mountain produces some amazing teas, and this one from Samovar is no exception. They are right on the money when they describe the taste and aroma as: "Deep and malty with hints of baked, bittersweet chocolate and raisin sugar. Lightly roasted body with a slightly sweet finish."

Optimal brewing is with sprin...

Russian Blend Black Tea from Samovar Tea Lounge

Style: Russian Caravan – Region: Blend

80 / 100 Aroma: 8/10 Flavor: 4/5 Value: 4/5
Sep. 22nd, 2011

This is one of the most unusual "Russian Caravan" type teas I have ever had the pleasure of tasting. Its name originates from the 18th century camel caravans that facilitated the transcontinental tea trade from tea-producing areas (namely India, Ceylon and China) to Europe via Russia. Although it is primarily considere...

Blood Orange Pu-erh from Samovar Tea Lounge

Style: Flavored Pu-erh – Region: Blend

100 / 100 Aroma: 10/10 Flavor: 5/5 Value: 5/5

Blood orange anything is delicious, but Samovar really got this tea right. An earthy aroma with a hint of citrus reminds you of a dark chocolate orange. Add a cube of sugar or agave to this tea to really bring out the orange taste.

Maiden's Ecstasy Pu-erh from Samovar Tea Lounge

Style: Pu-erh Tea – Region: Yunnan, China

90 / 100 Aroma: 10/10 Flavor: 4/5 Value: 4/5
Jun. 8th, 2010

Pu-erh teas are like drinking the earth - sounds kind of gross, but it is surprisingly delicious and relaxing. I like this particular pu-erh because it has a hint of sweetness which is a nice juxtaposition to its earthy aroma. This is a heavy tea, I would drink it with sweets or a light salad.
