Sep. 17th, 2017

With few exceptions (see my review of Ginger Turmeric herbal...blecch), TJs consistently offers a surprisingly high-quality selection of store-brand teas—better so far in my experience than any other grocery chain, and than a nontrivial number of name-brand bagged teas. This one fits the bill. Of course it's not to...

I tried a peach tea that has some artificial flavoring. Here's what happened.

[Sorry, clickbait haters...couldn't resist...first, a backstory...]

For several years, my wife has used this, in combination with at least two other brands of peach tea and some black tea, to make a thoroughly delicious peachy iced tea...

Lapsong Souchong from Tea & Absinthe

Style: Lapsang Souchong – Region: ?????

92 / 100 Aroma: 9/10 Flavor: 5/5 Value: 4/5
Sep. 12th, 2017

This tea is really quite impressive. Whether dry or brewed, its aroma and its flavor both remind me of smokiness from some sort of aromatic wood used for barbecuing -- though it is not "barbecue" flavored. Perhaps it reminds me of camping mixed with a cigarette smoke that somehow isn't gross?

The smokiness is very p...

English Breakfast from Benner Tea Co

30 / 100 Aroma: 3/10 Flavor: 2/5 Value: 3/5
Sep. 11th, 2017

This tea isn't super great, but it's definitely not the worst thing. The price is pretty good, $1.20 for a box of 20 bags. However, there are teas that are the same price but are much better quality.

The flavor was decent for the first couple of sips, it had a sort of floral taste. Quickly though, my mouth began to ...

Decaf Black Tea from Lipton Tea

45 / 100 Aroma: 5/10 Flavor: 2/5 Value: 3/5
Sep. 8th, 2017

The dry teabags have some tea aroma, which is a step up from many decaffeinated black teas. It's earthy, but not strong and reminds me of stale cocoa.

The brewing tea smells almost roasted and smoky and again reminds me of weak cocoa. There's also a hint of cooking noodles. The aroma is OK, but it still isn't quite ...

Aug. 29th, 2017

After reading the reviews here and needing more office tea, I went to a local Ten Ren store looking for Dragon Well in the tea bag. They had it in loose form only at $150 a pound. They directed me to the Asian market next door where they did have the Green Tea.

Just finished a cup and it's like what you all wrote. A...

Aug. 29th, 2017

Maybe my tea-sniffing nose is busted. Perhaps the neural algorithm that processes tea odor has a few lines of code missing, or the broadband line from nose to brain is a tad noisy and leaky. See, most true teas (camellia) don't smell much like they taste to me, or even much like tea a lot of the time, or they have no...

Aug. 28th, 2017

The dry teabag smells mostly of cinnamon. There's a hint of citrus, but not near what I was expecting from the name.

Adding the hot water releases a distinct and pleasant lemon scent, but cinnamon is still the dominant aroma.

The taste is yet different. It definitely tastes of lemon oil or peel and is much strong...

Jasmine Oolong Tea from Teavana

62 / 100 Aroma: 8/10 Flavor: 4/5 Value: 2/5
Aug. 25th, 2017

This is a sweet floral tea with a longer than average steeping time - but it is worth the wait. A little overpriced as you are paying Teavana's marketing department - but I like it - I can enjoy this equally hot or iced and I don;t sweeten it. The aroma is just wonderful - even better than the taste (to me).

Aug. 25th, 2017

After having a better-quality loose leaf jasmine tea I decided to try this again. Now, it's possible that the aroma and flavour have been... affected by sitting forgotten in the back of a cupboard for over a year.

The tea sachets don't smell like jasmine (anymore), but the brewed tea does, kind of. But more like bub...

One of the minor mysterious adventures of getting last-minute, dirt-cheap, cut-rate, online deals on resort hotels (as I did one stormy evening in Sedona, AZ) is to sample new teas otherwise not often consumed. Sedona has decent water, but I also brought a bag home to try (apples-to-apples comparison).

I found a bag of this food-service/wholesale product at a motel in southern Utah, and decided to take it home for this review given the poor water quality in that town. I'm glad, because my preconceived notion about the weakness and unoriginality of food-service teas—especially considering the plainness and dated st...

Aug. 23rd, 2017

Obtainable mainly in assorted supermarkets across the West, this store-brand green tea tasted about average for a bagged green tea—placing it somewhat above-average for generic/store-brand teas overall. The dry leaves in the bag were quite finely chopped, but still identifiable as leaves! Some stem pieces appeared ...

It's cheap. On the spectrum of teas Lipton would be near the bottom. It is almost undrinkable. I wouldn't drink it for free.

I drank this in Het Gouden Randje's tearoom.

It smelled sweet and creamy, and almost like custard. Definitely like vanilla. I was amazed with how the clear liquor tasted and felt milky. It's soft and sweetish.
It actually reminds me of a cheap artificial-vanilla-flavoured bagged tea that I used to drink years ago, ...

This is a new tea that Het Gouden Randje has just added to its inventory. I drank a cup of it in the tea shop, and I did my best to taste it properly. It's always difficult, though; I prefer to drink teas at home with more controlled conditions and multiple chances to get to know them properly.
I feel like this time e...

Not exactly my cup of tea (lol, puns) but for a flavored herbal tea it was pretty decent, based on other ones I've tried. On the plus side it was not very astringent at all, but unfortunately it tasted oddly soap-like and weird to me.

Okay this is a first time tea review. My husband brought a couple of Rituals English Breakfast teabags home from a trip. I opened the first teabag and was pleasantly surprised--I had expected something pretty nasty. But I enjoyed it. Right now I am using the second teabag. Knowing that it's not available in stores make...

Been drinking this for 20-something years. Even back in my coffee drinking days, this is what was thrown in the food sack when we'd go out backpacking and climbing. Brewed with mountain stream water over a butane cooker on a cold mountain morning, this tea did the trick. It's strong with a good flavor. One of it's mai...

The oversized teabags are individually sealed in mylar and smell fresh when opened. The dry tea leaves are a little more broken than I would expect from high-quality tea. The dominant aroma is of the roast and is nice, but generic.

The roast is also the dominant flavor as is normal for darker oolongs, but I am pleas...

It's my impression that this is very heavily caffeinated. I know that there's this mistaken impression that white teas contain almost no caffeine, but this just isn't true. Not only is there an article with citations here on RateTea which says that isn't true, there is an article on the Oregon State University site, wh...

This tea tends to be light on flavor, but for that, it is good. It is caffeinated but, even in that, this tea is relatively mild. I would not recommend adding anything to this tea as it will be easily overpowered. But, if you're looking for something with a nice flavor and nice aroma, and just overall pleasant, this...

I would tend to agree with the other reviews I've seen with regards to the flavor, but only because the aroma is so strong that I think the expectations for the taste are elevated. This is a great example of a tea whose smell is far greater than the flavor. That being said, the flavor is good, just not great. Furthe...
