Osmanthus Oolong Se Chung from Upton Tea Imports

Style: Osmanthus Tea – Region: China

70 / 100 Aroma: 6/10 Flavor: 4/5 Value: 4/5
Feb. 13th, 2019

A pleasant cup - the floral notes blend well with the tea. Oolong and flowers makes for an odd but effective combination.

This is a pretty mellow but still flavorful Chinese black tea. A little nutty and smoky, and offered at a good price.

Fairly bland Chinese dark green tea. Being organic is not always enough, apparently.

Didnt like this at first but it has grown on me. It is best warm-hot not piping hot - that allows the full nuanced flavor to come out. Earthy with a little citrus.

Organic Black Tea from Prince of Peace

61 / 100 Aroma: 7/10 Flavor: 3/5 Value: 3/5
Feb. 1st, 2019

I found this box of tea at a natural health store on my lunch hour. Most places that carry Prince of Peace tea don't carry black tea, so I grabbed them. The 100 tea bags are individually wrapped in paper, so I transferred them to an airtight container after removing the plastic seal from the box.

A good inexpensive Chinese green. Fairly sharp and peppery on the palate. The earthy, leafy aroma is quite nice. You could certainly do worse at this price.

This is a perfectly good Lapsang Souchong. Smoky and lightly bitter, but not harsh. Slightly aromatic finish.

I'm no big fan of this tea. This tea is not for me..... Anywho! I don't know what I was expecting. The taste of a prince, the taste of a wale... It did not taste like either. Trust me, I know.

An earthy oolong that is good for multiple infusions.

An attractive tea with a nice scent but it lacks jasmine flavor. I have had other jasmines from UT that I liked more.

86 / 100 Aroma: 8/10 Flavor: 4/5 Value: 3/5
Jan. 10th, 2019

This tea was more pleasant than interesting. I liked it a lot, but found it hard to write as much about it. I also thought it was slightly overpriced.

Dry leaf is very pretty (like many of Murchie's teas, their photo doesn't do it justice, so I took one of my own), with bright golden-orange tips against a dark backg...

Jan. 3rd, 2019

Lovely jasmine pearl tea. The hand rolled pearls open gently as it brews. The taste is delicate—not as grassy or as floral as a few of the other jasmine greens out there. Nice tea that is smooth and easily drinkable.

Blood Pressure from Triple Leaf Tea

37 / 100 Aroma: 2/10 Flavor: 3/5 Value: 2/5
Jan. 1st, 2019

Seeing the questionable claims made by some wellness-tea makers, including this one on its site, raises my blood pressure. That rather opposes the stated intent of this tea! Fortunately that effect is temporary. It's wise to heed the last part of RateTea's description of Triple Leaf: "Some of this company's product...

Dec. 16th, 2018

Even though this isn't a Stash tea, it was well stashed—just a couple packets jammed discreetly in the middle of a bunch of bags of Bigelow Green at a conference, and only the first morning. Fortunately I noticed and grabbed them: one for there, one to bring home.

I'm not much for detecting subtleties, and pro...

Dec. 4th, 2018

After being disappointed with Organic Herbie's other teas, I was a bit apprehensive about trying this, but I turned out to like it a surprising amount. I also notice an inconsistency in the marketing: the description says it is grown in the Wuyi mountains, which are located in Fujian province, but the website says that...

Dec. 4th, 2018

The dry tea in the bag is chopped quite fine, but smells really nice. Once the water's added, the aroma of the young tips comes through very clearly, smelling very similar to silver needle white teas.

The first taste is surprisingly sweet with a strong vegetal finish. The flavor is strong even while hot, but there's...

55 / 100 Aroma: 6/10 Flavor: 3/5 Value: 3/5

The aroma has a mild earthiness. The liquor is a light amber color. Mild taste that would be overwhelmed by milk or sugar.

85 / 100 Aroma: 8/10 Flavor: 4/5 Value: 4/5
Dec. 2nd, 2018

I'm not sure how others determine their point ratings for tea, but for me, an 85 is an above-average everyday tea. At first, when I tried this, I didn't like it. Something about the notes just didn't appeal to me. It took getting more used to rougher, young raw pu-erh for me to really start to appreciate this one. It ...

Dec. 2nd, 2018

When the holidays came around (and the holiday sales) and I was treating myself to one of the more expensive cakes, I picked this one out of all of those available on TeaVivre. The reason that I picked this one was that it's drinkable now, it tastes like it has potential for the future (not all currently drinkable cake...

80 / 100 Aroma: 7/10 Flavor: 3/5 Value: 3/5
Dec. 2nd, 2018

I'd rate this one pretty high, but most of the flavor is in the breath, not in the taste itself. I think it's a matter of personal preference as to whether one prefers one, the other, or both. I prefer both because it gives more of a rounded experience. This just doesn't have enough in the taste to appeal to me. There ...

Organic English Breakfast from Harney and Sons

69 / 100 Aroma: 7/10 Flavor: 3/5 Value: 2/5
Nov. 29th, 2018

For an English breakfast tea I think this one is pretty good! I’m picky about black teas in general because I don’t like when they are too astringent or bitter. This tea isn’t too astringent at all though! However it was a little bitter, but overall it tasted pretty decent. The aroma is good and mild and smells l...

82 / 100 Aroma: 9/10 Flavor: 4/5 Value: 4/5
Nov. 27th, 2018

This was a smooth, naturally sweet tea (even with no sweetener added) that had a pleasing and somewhat complex aroma.

We ordered four teas (two true teas and two Rooibos) at Socra Tea during our recent visit to Detroit, and this was the tea that jumped out and left the biggest impression on me.

Very smooth flavor...

Nov. 26th, 2018

I'm rewriting this review because I just gave the Dog Year tea another try and I was happier with it this time. Months ago, it was too smoky and unpalatable. It tasted nothing like the Monkey Year tea. But, after time, it's evolved. I had a sample and for part of the past few months, it was in the sample pouch. I event...

Nov. 24th, 2018

The first time I made this tea, I didn't get much flavour out of it, so this time I used more leaves than I usually do for green tea - at least, I tried to. The leaves are large and twisted into irregular shapes, so it's not very dense. I think I could have used even more.
The liquor is rather light but it's a really ...

90 / 100 Aroma: 7/10 Flavor: 4/5 Value: 4/5
Nov. 24th, 2018

When I first tried this tea, I used a Western brewing method and it came out terribly. At that point in time, I also had very little experience with the bitterness of younger raw pu-erh. Well, I let some samples of this sit around for about six months to a year and gave it another try. I was so happy I tried this again...
