Jasmine Downy Pearls from Peet's Coffee and Tea (Peets)

Style: Jasmine Pearls – Region: Fujian, China

73 / 100 Aroma: 7/10 Flavor: 4/5 Value: 4/5
Jul. 17th, 2014

A very bold-tasting Jasmine tea. Tried at my friend Fairleigh's house; thank you for serving this!

Dry leaf is very aromatic, with a strong and pleasing jasmine smell, but also the base tea is evident.

Upon brewing, produces a golden-colored cup with a rich, powerful flavor. A good balance of jasmine flavoring ...

Snow Leopard® from Peet's Coffee and Tea (Peets)

Style: White Tea – Region: Fujian, China

60 / 100 Aroma: 6/10 Flavor: 3/5 Value: 3/5
May. 22nd, 2012

Snow Leopard is a white tea though its aroma and flavor seem very close to green tea.

The predominant flavor is one of light grassiness while the taste on the back of the tongue and the finish have a pleasing but very subtle fruitiness.

I tried this in a Peet's in the Philadelphia airport. I let it brew 2 minutes. Peet's said they normally include two teabags but I only used one and saved the other for later--and I'm glad because this tea would have been far too strong.

This is unusually strong for a Darjeeling, but this could just be due to a ge...

Phoenix Mountain Oolong from Peet's Coffee and Tea (Peets)

Style: Dancong Oolong – Region: China

70 / 100 Aroma: 7/10 Flavor: 4/5 Value: 3/5
May. 20th, 2010

This is Peet's most affordable and gentlest-tasting oolong. It has a nice toasty-grain flavor with hints of fruit, decently complex but not overpowering. Peet's apparently calls it "pungent," but I don't think that's accurate at all.

Lapsang Souchong from Peet's Coffee and Tea (Peets)

Style: Lapsang Souchong – Region: China

May. 20th, 2010

This tea has an inviting campfire-smoke aroma, but tastes very, very smoky, almost meaty, to the exclusion of the basic tea flavor. If you're looking for a less intense smoky flavor, try the Scottish Breakfast (still a little strong for me) or the Russian Caravan (which I love).

Ti Kwan Yin from Peet's Coffee and Tea (Peets)

Style: Tie Guan Yin – Region: Fujian, China

47 / 100 Aroma: 6/10 Flavor: 2/5 Value: 2/5
May. 20th, 2010

I know people who swear by this stuff, but I am not one of those people. To me it tastes like steamed spinach, which is not something I want to drink. I'm willing to believe I brewed it incorrectly, but I've tried it a couple of times, once in the presence of an oolong fanatic, and the overcooked-greens flavor was alwa...

Lung Ching Dragonwell from Peet's Coffee and Tea (Peets)

May. 17th, 2010

If I could drink only one green tea, it would be this one, with its flat, olive-green leaves and irresistible buttery finish. It's very smooth, not bitter or pungent at all, with a deeper, richer flavor than some greens. It does have a vegetal quality, but I'd say the aroma is more like asparagus than grass. I like asp...

Snow Leopard® from Peet's Coffee and Tea (Peets)

73 / 100 Aroma: 8/10 Flavor: 4/5 Value: 2/5
May. 17th, 2010

Very smooth with a gentle sweetness. One of the best things about this tea is that it's almost impossible to oversteep to the point of bitterness - worst case scenario, you'll just end up with something grassier, more like green tea than white. It also makes a light, crisp iced tea.

I can't really pick out the adve...

Winter Solstice Tea from Peet's Coffee and Tea (Peets)

Style: Flavored Black Tea – Region: Blend

83 / 100 Aroma: 9/10 Flavor: 4/5 Value: 3/5
May. 14th, 2010

As its name implies, this is a seasonal offering, available only around Christmas and priced like a once-a-year indulgence. The flavor is festive, with warming spices and a bright, optimistic note from the orange peel. It has a slightly astringent quality too; I don't know whether that's from the citrus or the Indian t...

Hibiscus C Blend Teabags from Peet's Coffee and Tea (Peets)

Style: Herbal Tea – Region: Blend

73 / 100 Aroma: 6/10 Flavor: 4/5 Value: 4/5
May. 14th, 2010

Bright, tart, and fruity, with spicy undertones. The hibiscus makes it a brilliant Kool-Aid red, but the flavor is not so sweet and a lot more complex. I like it with honey; I imagine it would also be good iced (Peet's actually serves it iced in summer, but sweetened and mixed with lemonade. Very refreshing.)

83 / 100 Aroma: 8/10 Flavor: 5/5 Value: 4/5
May. 14th, 2010

This has a nice smoky flavor, but not too smoky - I can't handle full-strength Lapsang Souchong or even Scottish Breakfast, but this one is blended with other teas in a proportion that I find quite drinkable. (I think it's something like 1/4 Lapsang Souchong, but I don't remember for sure.) It's a great rainy-day tea, ...
