Yunnan Silver Needles from Passenger Coffee

Style: Silver Needle – Region: Yunnan, China

96 / 100 Aroma: 9/10 Flavor: 5/5 Value: 4/5
Nov. 7th, 2017

This tea was served at Copper Cup coffee shop in Lancaster, PA. Prior to that, I hadn't even heard of Passenger Coffee, and this tea really blew me away; I thought it exceptional.

I tend not to like silver needle white teas because they're often a bit too subtle (or, put less diplomatically, bland or weak) for me, ...

Lapsang Souchong from Harney and Sons

Style: Lapsang Souchong – Region: Wuyi, Fujian, China

80 / 100 Aroma: 9/10 Flavor: 4/5 Value: 4/5
Oct. 30th, 2017

Lapsang Souchong is not a tea for everybody, and this one is especially strong and smoky, a great beverage for a gloomy winter afternoon. You can almost feel woodsmoke in it. It's too aggressive for me to enjoy very often -- I have to be in a mood for it. But I could imagine a bit of it blended with another tamer bl...

Picture of Yunnan Loose Tea

Yunnan Loose Tea from Murchie's Tea & Coffee Ltd

Style: Yunnan Red – Region: Yunnan, China

88 / 100 Aroma: 9/10 Flavor: 5/5 Value: 5/5
Oct. 19th, 2017

This was one of the most classic examples of a Dian Hong or black tea from Yunnan, that I have tried in a long time.

The dry leaf is rich in golden tips, looking a little more greenish and silvery than in the company's picture. It smells mild but very pleasant and complex, with smoky and fruity notes typical of a Y...

Black Gunpowder (z) from De Theefabriek

Style: Black Gunpowder – Region: Fujian, China

57 / 100 Aroma: 5/10 Flavor: 3/5 Value: 4/5
Oct. 19th, 2017

The dry leaves are a lovely dull brown colour. I just really like the look of them.

I'm having slightly mixed feelings. It is flowery as advertised, but it's also a bit "dull" in a way that cheap teabags often are. Maybe I used too much tea or let it steep for too long. Or maybe too many leaves and not steeped long ...

Picture of Keemun Extra Choice

Keemun Extra Choice from Murchie's Tea & Coffee Ltd

Style: Keemun – Region: China

66 / 100 Aroma: 7/10 Flavor: 4/5 Value: 2/5
Oct. 17th, 2017

A very subdued tea. This one was pleasant, but disappointed me, given how much I normally tend to like Keemun.

Dry leaf smells pleasant and mild, a little fresher and cooler-smelling than I normally expect for Keemun.

Brews a rich, dark cup with a mellow flavor and a distinctly caramelly aroma. A little fresher,...

Oct. 17th, 2017

One of my favourite green teas. Doesn't go bitter (leave for less than two minutes) and it tastes so smooth and nice. It is my go to tea in Starbucks these days.

Earl Grey from Kusmi Tea

Style: Earl Grey Tea – Region: China

65 / 100 Aroma: 8/10 Flavor: 3/5 Value: 3/5
Oct. 17th, 2017

Bought a tin last time I was in Paris from their store. They have a lot of earl grey teas which made me a little skeptical on how "specialised" they could be with all these blends, but I still decided to buy a tin.

It has a nice aroma that sticks, but the tea itself I would say is average. Not sure which blend they...

Prince of Wales (Loose) from Twinings

60 / 100 Aroma: 4/10 Flavor: 3/5 Value: 3/5
Oct. 12th, 2017

I felt at the first sip of this tea like swallowing a gulf of bonfire smoke, or, say, some embers (for its slightly-sweet finish). When I have a one-hundred-gram tin of Prince of Wales, a cuppa at afternoon tea time would bring me a shot in the arm in my dull everyday routines as if to go camping on a weekend and have ...

Shou Mei White from Caina Tea

Style: Shou Mei – Region: Fujian, China

85 / 100 Aroma: 9/10 Flavor: 4/5 Value: 5/5
Oct. 11th, 2017

Shou Mei is a very stem-y and leafy loose left. Caina says to steep 1tbsp for about 25 seconds, with all the stems and big leafs it's pretty hard to measure. It's actually a lot easier just to eyeball and take a guess, if you drink a lot of loose leaf tea it's not that hard to guesstimate it. To me it has a light flowe...

95 / 100 Aroma: 10/10 Flavor: 5/5 Value: 5/5
Oct. 11th, 2017

Iron Goddess is the first Oolong tea I've had. It has this nice earthy/herbal, flowery flavor, almost a natural sweetness to it's taste. You can clearly imagine the taste by it's smell, which is very much the same. Caina says you want to steep 1tsp for about 30 seconds, with resteeping of the leaves about 5 times. This...

I have had this tea in 2016 and now this year. It has a strong aroma with hints of sugar. It also has a sweet flavor and great mouthfeel.

Tibetan Ya'an Dark from Caina Tea

Style: Dark Tea – Region: Sichuan, China

90 / 100 Aroma: 9/10 Flavor: 4/5 Value: 5/5
Oct. 5th, 2017

Tibetan Ya'an is a nice, strong dark tea. Even though it's a "strong" tea it has a very "light" and smooth more earthy flavor to it. Caina says to use 1-2tsp for about 60 seconds, maybe because I like tea to be very strong but for me best steep time is actually around 1:15seonds. They say you can re-steep the leaves on...

Oct. 5th, 2017

Dragon Mountain Yixing is now my favorite black tea. The flavor is amazing, it's hard for me to describe other than it's just so good. Caina says to steep this you need 1tbsp for about 40 seconds, for cup of course. They also say you can re-steep the leaves about 6 times. Much to my surprise, you can actually re-steep ...

Oct. 2nd, 2017

I got this box free with an order of loose Ten Ren tea. The normal price is $4 for a box of 20 tea bags.

The individual bags are sealed in plastic for freshness and the aroma is quite strong when opened. It doesn't smell like dragon well to me, though, but like cheap gunpowder or pearl green. The dry tea is chopped ...

54 / 100 Aroma: 5/10 Flavor: 4/5 Value: 2/5
Sep. 24th, 2017

My bag of Numi's Jasmine Green came in an assortment box that was priced unusually high (almost 6 bucks at Wal Mart!). The box only contains 16 bags, which leaves the consumer feeling rather taken advantage of, especially at such a cost. Nevertheless, it's a fair and true counterargument if you holler at me, "Look, b...

Sep. 21st, 2017

I would love to try sheng pu-erh since that seems to be so highly regarded, but I haven't been able to find any. Wanting that, I was also interested in compressed pu-erh of any kind, and De Theefabriek has these little "nests" of shou pu-erh.

They are individually wrapped in paper in the package, but I was hit by th...

Sep. 12th, 2017

I just find oolongs really difficult. I have three tightly rolled oolongs, including this one, and they taste almost identical to me. I feel like I'm giving ratings almost at random sometimes.

I know I used a very large amount of leaves this time. It has a soapy flavour (not in an unpleasant way) like jade oolongs, ...

Sep. 2nd, 2017

Even before I brewed this, the colour of the leaves reminded me of Vietnamese green teas: olive green with some grey and white leaves. The aroma and the colour of the liqueur also reminded me of Vietnamese green teas.
The aroma and flavour made me think of Simon LĂ©velt's Yen Bai Groen and a brandless tea called Vietn...

Aug. 30th, 2017

I was very impressed by this tea. I wasn't sure what to expect after reading the reviews. But, I was very happy with it.

Firstly, this isn't what I'd call a full-bodied tea. It's not light, either. It's more in the middle. The notes are delicious and strong, but they don't fill up my entire palette. There's a lot of...

Aug. 29th, 2017

This tea is a lie. It's mediocre oolong that's been sprayed with caramel apple flavoring. Republic of Tea isn't always the highest quality, but I at least expected them to be honest. The can gives no indication that it's flavored and the website positively claims that it isn't. At first I doubted my own senses, but I w...

Aug. 25th, 2017

I've never had a tea as mouthwatering as this one and the bitterness which prompts it is really quite reasonable and consistent even after brewing it numerous times. It has a light, pleasant sweetness. But, really most of the presence is in a light thrust of bitterness at the start of a sip, which causes my mouth to wa...

I actually ordered the slightly more expensive and higher quality Jasmijn Mao Jian instead of this one. I'm going to give De Theefabriek the benefit of doubt and put it down to a mistake. Given how many samples I ordered, any small mistakes like this are understandable.

The jasmine smell struck me as a bit sharp at ...
