Decaffeinated Green Tea from Great Value

Style: Green Tea – Region: ?????

14 / 100 Aroma: 1/10 Flavor: 1/5 Value: 2/5
Jun. 11th, 2021

Quite simply, this is one of the worst teas I've tried. For starters, it has no dry-bag aroma at all. I suppose that's better than a noxious smell, since it's basically the scent of the teabag itself. Then the in-cup and wet-bag scents resembled a balanced blend of very faint green tea with wet paper. Something abo...

Jun. 7th, 2021

Back to traveling with motel stays again this year, and back to finding their teas I haven't rated yet! As always, I'll bring an extra bag home to try in my well water for consistency in rating, so that bad local water doesn't affect a tea's rating unduly.

The concept behind "Green Tea with Lemon" left me with a s...

Ultra Spice Chai from Twinings

Style: Chai / Spiced Tea – Region: ?????

84 / 100 Aroma: 9/10 Flavor: 4/5 Value: 4/5
May. 4th, 2021

The aroma is nice and spicy. I like the flavor as well. It was definitely present but not as intense as "ultra" might imply. I didn't sweeten it, but I think it could do well both sweetened or unsweetened depending on one's mood. Overall, this is a solid bagged tea!

China Yellow Dragon Organic from TeaGschwendner

Style: Yellow Tea – Region: ?????

95 / 100 Aroma: 10/10 Flavor: 5/5 Value: 5/5
Feb. 23rd, 2021

The first yellow tea I have ever tried and I am quite impressed. As soon as I got the dosage right (certainly higher than the recommended 11g/liter), I found a very interesting flavor profile (it was not that interesting with a lower dosage). It is somehow reminiscent of some Oolongs or First Flush Darjeelings, but mor...

Hot Cinnamon Spice (Sachets) (Formerly Hot Cinnamon Sunset) from Harney and Sons

72 / 100 Aroma: 8/10 Flavor: 4/5 Value: 3/5
Feb. 13th, 2021

One of my co-workers has been quaffing this tea with devoted fervor for a few months since I introduced him to drinking any tea. In turn, he gave me some of this. Knowing how much Harney tea tins cost even at Target, I wouldn't have bought this on my own, but it's not bad to try for free. I based the value on the kn...

Feb. 9th, 2021

This tea is pleasant so long as it is NOT overbrewed. The tea is very sweet even without sweetener, and the longer it's brewed the sweeter and more intense in flavor it generally gets. I normally prefer strong flavors in my tea, so it's remarkable to me that this is the first time I find a tea to be a bit *too* much. I...

Dec. 26th, 2020

Prep: 175F, sachet, 8oz, 2mins

Aroma: Very peachy and fruity. Seems more on the white tea aroma wise. 8/10

Taste: Very peach forward. Incredibly light and airy but delicious. 8/10

Body: This is a lighter tea but it’s perfect for the flavor. 8/10

Prep: 212F, 5min, 2tsp, 16oz
Note: Adagio is really generous. They give you points and free tea for eating their tea or sharing their company on social. This particular tea was a free sample which is always a joy to receive.

Aroma: The aroma on this one really comes into focus as it cool. Definitely shows a brow...

Buddha’s Dream from Adagio Teas

72 / 100 Aroma: 7/10 Flavor: 4/5 Value: 4/5
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...

Coconut from Adagio Teas

Dec. 22nd, 2020

Prep: 212F, 5min, 2tsp, 16oz

Aroma: Smelling the dry tea, there is a fairly substantial coconut flesh aroma that thankfully stays away from the artificial sun tan lotion notes that can often plague many coconut products. In the mug, the rich malty notes from the black tea are dominant with a mild creamy coconut not...

Dec. 22nd, 2020

Prep: 212F, 5min, 2 heaping tsp for 16oz.

Aroma: I often am critical of chai teas because they are too balanced. Typically, I want the spice when I go for chai. This blend delivers. Quite spicy, plenty of chocolate in the nose. 9/10

Flavor: There is not a disparity between the aroma and flavor which is nice. Ve...

Honeybush Banana Nut from Adagio Teas

Dec. 21st, 2020

Prep: 2 tsp, 16oz, 212F, 5min

The aroma of this dry tea is mind blowing. I honestly believe this could be a dehydrated banana nut muffin in a bag.

Aroma:after brewing, this still very much smells like a banana nut muffin. It’s crazy how well it hits all those notes. 10/10

Taste: There is a bit of a honey...

Dec. 21st, 2020

Prep: 212F, 3 min, 16oz, 2tsp

Appearance: deep red with some oil residue on top of the tea (from the candy cane, I’d guess)

Aroma: This smells incredible. So much peppermint. Of even go as far as to say that it’s the specific peppermint that I’d associate with a candy cane. Incredibly well done.

Dec. 21st, 2020

Prep: 175F, 3 minutes, 2 heaping teaspoons in 16oz

Appearance: Transparent pink, quite bright.

Aroma: There is a mild mix of strawberry and raspberry. I keep searching for the basil notes but I can’t find them.

Flavor: The white tea base is very mild and allows a delicate strawberry flavor to take the stage...

Earl Grey from Twinings

Dec. 19th, 2020

I’m not an expert on earl gray. This may be the first I’ve ever had.

Prep: 200F, 5min, 2.5tsp, 16oz

Aroma - There is a ton of citrus exploding out of the cup. I can’t pick up much else, honestly.

Flavor: A little bit of orange peel, more orange zesty notes. It’s pretty hard to get to the actual tea....

Organic Herbal Chai from Allegro

Dec. 16th, 2020

Prep: 1.5tsp per 8oz, 200F, 5min
Aroma: Quite nutty with some vanilla and cinnamon notes. I’d venture to say that the majority of the aroma is from the base Rooibos and less on the added herbal pieces.

Flavor: Extremely mild. I’m not sure if an extended steep would help here but there isn’t a ton going on. A...

Dec. 14th, 2020

A little funny having a black tea before bedtime; however, the cab says low caffeine. David’s would not mislead me, right?

Prep: 2.5 tsp, 16oz, 200F, 7.5 minutes (directions say 205 for 7 minutes).

Aroma: You really get the vanilla notes on this one. The cinnamon pops pretty nicely as well. With the aroma bei...

Cold Brew: Peach & Mango Tea from Teapigs

35 / 100 Aroma: 3/10 Flavor: 3/5 Value: 2/5
Dec. 8th, 2020

Interesting option for a quick cold brewed tea.

Aroma: faint, very faint peach notes and almost nothing else. I almost want to try this with sparkling water to see if it pops more.

Flavor: very mild peach ring notes. Not too sweet. Thin body.

Value: fairly expensive shelf tea. Wouldn’t recommend.

Dec. 7th, 2020

Full transparency. This was a sealed tin from years ago. Since Teavana is no longer selling this, I’m not worried about skewing their sales numbers.

Aroma: This seems like a pretty oxidized oolong. A. It musty, earthy, and a touch vegetal. The strawberry is a note but very mild in the mix.

Flavor: Medium body...

Prep: 1 bag, 8 oz water

Aroma: Peppermint is very prominent. Almost reminds me a bit of the tic tac fresh mint aroma.

Flavor: Very soothing, peppermint and calming. I’m honestly shocked at how good this is for the price. Body is medium+ as well!

Value: This is available at the grocery store for under 5 dol...

Having not been either impressed nor repulsed by Bigelow's regular Earl Grey, and having not gotten any new teas to review for some months, and having to work down a stockpile of reviewed teas, I finally raided my wife's cache of the decaf version to try it for a report here. I've missed RateTea more than I've missed ...

Dec. 3rd, 2020

This was another good value tea offered by Harney & Sons. Hats off to their tea blenders, that is an area they seem to excel in - taking mediocre teas, adding to them, and making them into something better. This seems like a cheap Chinese black tea that is nicely spiced up (with citrus, almond, clove, safflowers, and...

Dec. 1st, 2020

This seems to be an inexpensive Chinese gunpowder tea perked up with some spices - cardamom, cinnamon, nutmeg, coriander, fennel, ginger, and artificial flavorings to be exact. The resulting flavor is light but good, and the price is reasonable. Interestingly, they do not recommend preparing this chai in the traditio...

Nov. 22nd, 2020

Cup at home, made from a teabag. Pours hazy dark brown (against white china) with sediment. Intense aroma of malt, bergamot oil, citrus and, well, horse manure, if you ask me, with some leafy notes of black tea. Bitter flavour of black tea, with some malty notes (Assam?) and citric touches and hints of bergamot oil. As...

A delicious, fragrant and strong-brewing decaf sachet. I take it plain but could easily add milk and/or sugar or sweetener if desired. So comforting. Not too expensive - nice tin and sachets.
