Ultra Select Green Tea from Cain's

May. 15th, 2019

First off, thanks for the props on the backstory of this tea, Alex. It's a fascinating look into how brands bounce hither and yon. Somehow, someone under the Farmer Brothers umbrella still is making Cain's teas, and the ones I've had aren't duplicates of the corresponding Farmer Brothers products so far.

Pure Green Matcha Green Tea Blend from Salada

Style: Green Tea – Region: ?????

64 / 100 Aroma: 6/10 Flavor: 3/5 Value: 3/5
May. 4th, 2019

This combination of matcha and green tea was fairly non-descript. It wasn’t offensive, but it didn’t do much for me. Overbrewing does turn it a bit bitter, so be sure not to leave the bag in excessively. I still have more of the box, so I may update this entry if my opinion changes after a few tries.

Fat Elvis Rooibos Tea from Fava Tea Company

Apr. 23rd, 2019

This tea smells really good when it's in the bag. It has a strong banana smell, however it stills smells good in the cup but not as good. I tasted a hint of banana while drinking it and this is quiet interesting.

Pure Peppermint from Twinings

48 / 100 Aroma: 4/10 Flavor: 3/5 Value: 3/5
Apr. 21st, 2019

Once again, I drank a Twinings product, wondering how this brand gained enough of a reputation or loyalty to have lasted so long. The peppermint in these bags wasn't bad, but wasn't great either. Lots of stems too! It reminded me a lot of cheap/knock-off store brands or some of the lower-quality food-service pepperm...

70 / 100 Aroma: 7/10 Flavor: 4/5 Value: 4/5
Apr. 17th, 2019

The only difference I've detected between this product and regular Sleepytime is the addition of valerian root to the ingredients list, and a caution on the side of the box about not driving or operating machinery after using, as if this is some herbal-tea version of Ambien or Sominex. Of course, it's not. I'm writin...

I'm not a big mint fan but I thought I would give this a try. It's a good quality tea but for me it's too minty but after putting some sweetener in it was better.

Estate sales can be an unconventional way to try new teas upon which one normally wouldn't gamble the full cost of purchase. In this case, the tea apparently has been retired, and can't be bought anymore, but was shrink-wrapped in the box (never opened) and still in fresh condition. [I got it as part of a larger grab...

Apr. 13th, 2019

This is the second tea I’ve tried that mixes a green tea with matcha powder in a teabag. It wasn’t bad! I enjoyed my second test more than my first. Like the Celestial Seasonings offering that mixes green tea with matcha powder, this tea is better than the average bagged cheap green tea I’ve tried, as it increase...

This is another great tea from the Fava Tea company. I bought five different rooibos teas from them and they all got packaged in a nice black resealable pouch. It even had a hand written note with it to thank me for the order and a ton of flyers about tea and the benefits of it. Great packaging and fast shipping. Also ...

Green Tea Matcha from Celestial Seasonings

80 / 100 Aroma: 8/10 Flavor: 4/5 Value: 5/5
Apr. 7th, 2019

I’ve decided to try a few blends of matcha with other green tea and started with this brand. Given that I’ve never been overwhelmingly impressed with Celestial Seasonings, it was better than expected!

Though it cannot take the place of an actual matcha craving, the addition of matcha added a bit of sweetness and...

In general I don;t like Rooibos, but this has green in it and a bunch of fruity peach flavoring. Supposedly also contains dandelion leaf. Not a big fan of this one.

Mar. 27th, 2019

I was surprised off the bat by the unexpected aroma from the brewing tea. Instead of an Assam or Ceylon blend, it smells like inexpensive Yunnan teabags like Foojoy. It's smoky, earthy and woodsy.

The flavor reinforces my guess that this blend is predominantly Chinese. Astringent without bitterness, this tea tastes ...

Mar. 25th, 2019

I'm not a fan. It smells nice dry, kind of like a cinnamon roll. Brewed, the grain aroma from the barley takes over. I can see what they're going for and the chicory, carob and spices combine to give the passable impression of a mocha coffee, but there's too much dark bread crust for my taste.

I don't think this rea...

Mar. 19th, 2019

Colombian green tea with pear guava and soursop, and apparently some added flavor. Very floral, sweet, and fruity - almost candy-like. This would be nice in the summertime, but I probably won't get it again because of the price.

More floral and perfumey than a typical EG. It is not Upton's best but it is a worthwhile tea.

Mar. 19th, 2019

The green tea smells stronger than it tastes. There's nothing offensive about it, but neither is it satisfying. I rather suspect that Bigelow's green teas are blended for those that drink green tea for purported health benefits rather than the flavor. It's mild and not bitter, but it lacks any brightness or vegetal com...

53 / 100 Aroma: 6/10 Flavor: 3/5 Value: 3/5
Mar. 14th, 2019

I've had a few knockoffs of this lately, so I figured I'd review the real thing. Sweet Dreams is basically chamomile tea for people that don't like chamomile. When dry, the dominant aroma is spearmint. After steeping, it's a subdued mintiness with a bit of cinnamon and citrus.

The flavor complements the aroma and se...

This is ALDI's recreation of Bigelow Sweet Dreams. The balance is a bit different, but the same flavors are there.

The profile is chamomile and mint. The dominant mint is spearmint rather than peppermint and there's a little bit of sourness from the hibiscus. The menthol coolness appears in the finish along with som...

A very good value for a bagged green (organic). Branding is "snazzier" than the traditional bagged bigelow teas. We have "Steep" in out office and it is a nice upgrade from el-cheapo Lipton.

After tasting the Breakfast blend, this one's a bit of a letdown. The cocoa, vanilla and spices are smooth and quite delicious, but I don't taste much of the tea. Other than a hint of earthiness, it tastes just like chocolate cream pie to me.

It's good, but it's a bit too expensive for something that only tastes lik...

I don't see a point in proactively obtaining this tea, especially for money. Here's another offering I got at no cost (the best way), thanks to its being available in a tea box at a meeting, at a Holiday Inn Express. I'll rate "value" based on the prices I usually see for Bigelow teas in-store.

Feb. 19th, 2019

When I do drink regular Lipton tea, it's usually from a catering tray where it may have sat for a day or a month. On a whim, I got a small, sealed package (fifteen teas bags for a dollar) so I could try it fresh.

When dry, it smells oaky and leafy, but muted. After steeping, it develops a bit more character and ther...

Citrus Sunrise easily can be called Orange Tangerine Zinger, if it weren't for a similarly named blend they already have. That's because it starts out with the same common-denominator ingredients as the CS Zinger line (rose hips, orange peel, hibiscus, hawthorn, blackberry leaves), and just boosts the orange part with...

Here's another food-service tea obtained somewhere (can't recall which) in a string of hotels and diners up and down the High Plains.

Mostly I expect chamomile to be the same basic flavor; differences in my evaluations of it on this site mostly relate to intensity of that. Yet for any chamomile tea, but especiall...
