White Tea Cake from Upton Tea Imports

Style: White Tea – Region: China

91 / 100 Aroma: 10/10 Flavor: 4/5 Value: 3/5
Jan. 25th, 2021

The first thing I notice about this tea is the very comforting aroma it has. It smells and tastes sort of like freshly baked bread. It is a very smooth and easy to drink tea while still being very flavorful and interesting. It's thick bodied and it is not astringent at all which I really like.

Green Tea with Jasmine Tea Bags from Taylors of Harrogate

Style: Jasmine Pearls – Region: China

95 / 100 Aroma: 10/10 Flavor: 5/5 Value: 5/5
Jan. 9th, 2021

This is remarkable for a bagged tea. I tend to expect a mediocre tea in certain kinds of bagged tea. As a general rule, I think the delicacy flavors of jasmine green tea is a challenge to get right if it isn’t loose leaf or tea pearls, but this is an impressive cup. I managed to get two cups out of it. while the seco...

Purple Needle Black Tea of Jing Mai Mountain from Yunnan Sourcing

Style: Yunnan Red – Region: Lancang, Yunnan, China

94 / 100 Aroma: 8/10 Flavor: 5/5 Value: 5/5
Jan. 5th, 2021

This tea was quite different, especially relative to other Chinese teas. I enjoyed it a lot.

The dry leaf of this is long and straight, and has a mild aroma that is unlike most Yunnan teas: mostly fruity, and smelling more like grape than anything else, with some herbaceous, skunky undertones. It is reminiscent of s...

Style: Black Tea – Region: Shandong, China

88 / 100 Aroma: 8/10 Flavor: 5/5 Value: 5/5
Dec. 27th, 2020

Wow, I've been reviewing teas for all these years and this is the first tea I've ever tried from Shandong, and I am a fan!

The leaf is tightly curled and has a dusty gray appearance, with small but somewhat thick leaves, and smells very potent: strongly malty with a hint of smoke and dark chocolate. The maltiness is...

Buddha’s Dream from Adagio Teas

Style: Green and White Blend – Region: China

Dec. 25th, 2020

I’m a big fan of white tea and generally haven’t had a lot of success with green tea. I keep trying to evolve my palate and this tea is a step in that direction.

Prep: 175F, 16oz, 2 heaping tsp, 3 minutes
Aroma: Very delicate nose with mild peach. This has that relax in the couch with a movie tea type feel. 7...

Dec. 25th, 2020

Half-litre pot at home, made from a sample included in the tea company's Advent Tea Calendar (2020) and consisting of leaves of green mao feng tea. Pours clear pale straw (against white china) with no sediment. Clear aroma of green tea, mild but with notes of beans and fart - I guess I will never become a fan of the sc...

Dec. 24th, 2020

Prep: 175F, 5min, 2 heaping tsp, 16oz

Aroma: This took a little bit of time to come to the forefront. After the tea cook a few degrees, you get a nice blend of floral notes and light peach. Very pleasant. 7/10

Taste: Very nice. Mild peach on a delicate white backdrop. Really mellow and enjoyable. 8/10

Dec. 23rd, 2020

Prep: 8oz, 175F, 2.5 min
Aroma: The name is spot on. Really does have a Citronella note balanced by the earthiness of the green tea. 6/10

Flavor: This is pleasant. I mostly taste earth green tea but the aroma of the lemon and lime does add something. Probably not my go to blend but it’s solid. 6/10

72 / 100 Aroma: 6/10 Flavor: 4/5 Value: 4/5
Dec. 23rd, 2020

This was the first tea I've tried from Yunnan Sourcing to (relatively) disappoint. Perhaps it's just not suited to my tastes, and it's not bad, but I thought it failed to live up to the high expectations I have come to develop for this company.

This tea had both a different appearance and aroma from what I am used t...

92 / 100 Aroma: 8/10 Flavor: 5/5 Value: 5/5
Dec. 22nd, 2020

I continue to branch out into black teas from provinces other than Yunnan, sold by Yunnan Sourcing. This was a pleasant surprise: an exceptionally smooth tea, easy to brew and easy to drink, among the sweetest Keemuns I've tried.

The dry leaf is very fine and curly, so much it is shaped more like Bi Luo Chun than li...

High Mountain "Tu Cha" Black Tea from Wu Yi Mountains from Yunnan Sourcing

Style: Black Tea – Region: Wuyi, Fujian, China

86 / 100 Aroma: 7/10 Flavor: 4/5 Value: 5/5
Dec. 19th, 2020

This was a pleasant, if somewhat disappointing tea that I found tasted better as it cooled.

The dry leaf is long, wiry, and grayish black, and has a mild aroma that initially is a sort of sweet chocolatey quality, underlain by a deep maltiness. It reminds me of a chocolate shortbread cookie. Overall, the dry leaf do...

Lapsang Souchong from Stash Tea

Style: Lapsang Souchong – Region: Fujian, China

60 / 100 Aroma: 8/10 Flavor: 3/5 Value: 3/5
Dec. 15th, 2020

Prep: 4tsp, 200F, 4 minute steep. Going strong on this guy. First infusion notes.

Aroma: No one will question you that this is Lapsang Souchong. Huge smoky note, a little tobacco. Super inviting and warming.

Flavor: I expected this to be more aggressive than it turned out to be. This has a nice balance of rich...

Nov. 4th, 2020

I haven't had a lot of positive experiences with White2Tea brand tea, so far. I really didn't like their Hot Brandy mix of white and black teas (it seemed like a bad idea after thinking about it because of the very different way the two age and the fact that they often use different temperatures for brewing). The Night...

Half-litre pot at home, made from smoked Chinese black tea leaves. Pours clear dark amber (against white china) with no sediment. Clear aroma of smoke, with notes of black tea.

Half-litre pot at home, made from loose curly dried leaves of varying colour, spanning most shades of brown and grey. Pours clear reddish copper brown (against white china) with no sediment.

Apr. 24th, 2020

This has a pleasant, grassy aroma that comes thru clearly. The dominant flavor is herbal bitterness, but it does not become overbearing when brewed according to the directions. The price could not be better for an organic product. This is a good choice for an everyday green tea.

Apr. 19th, 2020

This tea has a beautiful jasmine smell and taste. You have to really love jasmine to like this tea; as the other reviewer mentioned, the jasmine aroma and taste is very overpowering, even with minimal steep time. I really enjoy this tea. It reminds me a great deal of Republic of Tea’s Twilight Rose, which is a chamom...

I was a bit disappointed with this one. Almost no taste, if you compare it to other black teas (like Typhoo) far too mild and decent. Didn't give me any kick. Very boring taste.

Half-litre pot at home, made from inch-long thin handrolled leaves - they look like tiny sticks. Pours clear light straw (against white china) with no sediment.

Half-litre pot at home. Pours clear and nearly colourless, with just a faint touch of pale straw, with no sediment. Mild aroma of white tea with barely discernible hints of some herbal spice.
