French Vanilla Decaffeinated Black Tea from Bigelow Tea

Style: Vanilla Black Tea – Region: ?????

30 / 100 Aroma: 3/10 Flavor: 1/5 Value: 3/5
May. 9th, 2017

Opening the foil pouch releases the scent of vanilla and cream, like custard or eggnog. Adding the water makes the aroma overpowering. This is decaf, so there is probably little tea aroma. Even if there were any, though, it would be completely masked by the flavoring.

The flavoring has a rich sweetness to it, but th...

Green Tea from Benner Tea Co

Style: Green Tea – Region: ?????

55 / 100 Aroma: 6/10 Flavor: 4/5 Value: 2/5
May. 2nd, 2017

Effective price at Aldi's just increased 25% via shrinking the packaging. A box of 20 Benner green tea bags now contains only 30 grams of tea instead of the 40 grams it used to contain.

Walmart sells Uncle Lee's green tea bags at half that cost and is a much better deal for a comparable product.

Apr. 30th, 2017

I'm a big fan of fruit punch flavors and decided to try this tea based on the other reviews. I wasn't disappointed. While slightly heavy on the cherries (which is to be expected, after all), it really does have a fruit punch flavor.

Aside from the tartness of the hibiscus, the flavor really doesn't reflect the named...

Apr. 30th, 2017

I recently tried some decaf Constant Comment and liked the orange and spice blend, so I tried this. This blend is, in a word, disappointing. Orange & Spice is much heavier on the cinnamon and while I can taste the clove if I look for it, it's very much a background flavor. I don't smell or taste the orange at all. This...

85 / 100 Aroma: 9/10 Flavor: 4/5 Value: 5/5
Apr. 28th, 2017

The oversized teabags contain tea that is quite broken, but still much larger than fannings. It smells strongly of bergamot.

After brewing, the aroma is a nice balance of citrus and an earthy and malty tea. The package doesn't say where the black tea is sourced. It tastes Chinese to me, but the only unflavored black...

Jasmine Decaf Green Tea from Triple Leaf Tea

Apr. 26th, 2017

The teabags smell quite strongly of jasmine, so I only steeped this one two minutes since Jasmine can get bitter.

The brewing tea smells like jasmine, but the background aroma is sort of fishy, almost like some kinds of pu-erh. This tea tastes pretty much like most inexpensive jasmine tea. The jasmine flavor is nice...

Apr. 26th, 2017

This was my first attempt at a tea made mostly from rose hips. It brews up a deep purple/maroon color that gets dark fast, and has a mild fruity (more than rosy) aroma, both dry in-bag and wet in-cup. Fair warning: watch for structurally weak bags. Of my first 4 bags, 3 split open somewhere while I was pouring the ...

Iced Tea Blend from Tetley Tea

75 / 100 Aroma: 7/10 Flavor: 4/5 Value: 5/5

I found this tea at the Dollar Tree, so I decided to try it. Inside the box are 12 large, round, unwrapped tea bags. The total weight of the tea is 84g, so each bag contains 7g, or enough for 2-3 cups of tea. Though the tea is intended to be made into iced tea, I'm drinking it hot.

I cut open one of the bags to look...

I enjoy a lot this tea, it has a very balanced taste. As you can taste the strong flavor of the black tea it also leaves the vanilla scent in your mouth. I think it could have a more aromatic vanilla fragrance. The 2 minutes to prepare it are enough. I also enjoy this tea with milk, it reduces the bitterness if you dis...

Apr. 19th, 2017

One of the very first teas I ever had as a kid (my mom liked it as an iced tea, for reasons I can't reckon aside from inexpensive price), somehow Lipton's flagship black has managed to avoid my first 67 ratings. How can a tea I've swallowed off and on for decades be so forgettable?

This tea is alarmingly ubiquitous...

Teekanne seems to revel in fruity herbals, based on their variety of offerings in this arena; however, as of this writing, I can't find this specific blend on their company site. Instead you'll see it in German food stores (where I got it) and online (Amazon, GermanDeli, etc.).

As with the other Teekanne fruit te...

Apr. 18th, 2017

The freshly-opened teabag has a strong smell when dry, which is unusual for a decaf. Even though it isn't particularly complex, the aroma is fresh and grassy.

The tea brews into a dark amber-green and smells very vegetal, like freshly harvested asparagus. Both color and aroma remind me of the "special gunpowder" gre...

The dry tea is pungent, smelling of both spearmint and peppermint with a hint of cinnamon. Adding water intensifies the aroma without really changing the balance. With the first taste, I realized that this tea is all about the mint. It's definitely high quality; while cheaper mint often tastes of stems and hay, there'...

Apr. 12th, 2017

I'm pretty sure this tea/tisane is almost artificial. While the ingredients aren't artificial, they aren't just plant parts, either. First, I think most of the orange aroma comes from a layer of orange oil ("natural orange essence" in the ingredients) sprayed on the teabag. The teabag itself is actually yellow-orange a...

30 / 100 Aroma: 4/10 Flavor: 2/5 Value: 1/5
Apr. 4th, 2017

This is one of the weakest decaf greens that I've tried. It brews up with a darker color than even many caffeinated teas, but the flavor and aroma remind me of dry hay. It tastes and smells slightly vegetal, but is nondescript and uninteresting.

I'm actually surprised that this tea is so bad. Twinings isn't exactly ...

I loved this! This was a very pleasant blended tea that I thought was versatile and took on different characteristics based on varying the amount of leaf I used, but always tasted good. Brewed strong, it was a little like a strong Irish Breakfast tea; a more mild steeping yielded a gentle cup that would make a good a...

Apr. 3rd, 2017

The dry teabag smells strongly of ginger with a lemony background. Adding water really brings out the lemongrass. My first thought is that it smells like a kind of Thai soup.

Ginger tends to overpower other flavors, but in this case there's a nice balance between the ginger and lemongrass. I can taste the lemon and ...

Apr. 3rd, 2017

It's apparently easier to decaffeinate green tea and still have some flavor than it is black tea. One thing I've learned about decaf greens, though, is to use hotter water than one would for the caffeinated varieties. Conventional wisdom for green tea is to use cooler water and shorter steeping times to keep from cooki...

Not being a huge ginger fan, but tolerant (I slugged down and enjoyed many a can of Vernor's soda in the days of drinking sugary fizz), I figured to give this inexpensive and compelling-looking flavor blend a try. Though the title touts ginger and turmeric, there's orange peel and orange oil in this too--enough that ...

Not a big fan of the pomegranate fad, I decided to try this tea anyway, given its promising-looking roster of ingredients: hibiscus, rose hips, orange peel, lemon peel, natural pomegranate flavor, licorice, blackberry leaves, and ginseng. That should deliver a good load of fruitiness, and it did!

In previous reviews, many have dubbed this as an "office tea" as it's readily available in offices, apparently. I don't work in an office, so I guess I wouldn't know. However, this tea is not available at any local supermarkets. My local Wal-mart does not sell this, nor does my McKinnon's. I actually had to acquire thi...

Twinings English Breakfast is my favorite of the brands I can find at a supermarket. It has a taste distinct from most black teas I've had, and it's one that I don't really mind.
How Twinings describes this tea is rather accurate. The flavor is indeed "complex." When taking an initial sip, it's hard to make out a dist...

While the dry tea is nearly odorless, the brewed tea smells much more like tea than many of its decaf competitors. The aroma is faint, but is of a tannic oakiness and light maltiness rather than just wet leaves.

I'll start by saying that the flavor of this tea is very weak and there's no comparison between this tea ...

Upon opening the pouch, the teabag smells pungently of bergamot. Unlike Twinings, this tea seems scented with only bergamot and no other citrus. Immediately after brewing, the aroma of bergamot is still strong but, like most decaf black teas, there is little noticeable tea aroma. There's a little mustiness that may rep...

A hotel in northwest Dallas had bags of this tea on its breakfast area, so I tried a couple -- one there in (what is some of the consistently highest quality nationwide) city water and one at home in my own well water. In both instances, my impression of this tea is simple and straightforward: "Constant Comment" minu...
