Picture of Tulsi

Tulsi from 24 Mantra Organic

Style: Tulsi / Holy Basil Tea – Region: ?????

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

This is a delightfully spicy herbal tea. It sort of wakes you up even without the caffeine. Though a CTC style loose leaf, it resteeps quite well -- but expect to infuse longer for the second cup. It's been a lot time, but I remember thinking this was inexpensive when I got it.

Rooibos Vanilla Chai from Adagio Teas

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

70 / 100 Aroma: 8/10 Flavor: 3/5 Value: 3/5
Mar. 8th, 2017

It's not bad, but it isn't the tastiest blend I've ever had. The rooibos, the spice, and the vanilla are all there, but I think the black tea chais tend to be preferable. The sweet and spice are indeed nice, so it's certainly worth a shot. It also holds up decently well to repeated steepings.

83 / 100 Aroma: 8/10 Flavor: 4/5 Value: 5/5
Jan. 20th, 2017

This is a lovely tea. The pomegranate flavor is delicate and blends well with the white tea. It holds up well to multiple steepings, each time making a cup of golden-colored tea. Though I generally prefer fruit teas where the fruit element is more robust, this is a very smooth, soothing drink. So far, this is the most ...

Osmanthus Green Oolong from Music City Tea

Style: Osmanthus Tea – Region: ?????

87 / 100 Aroma: 8/10 Flavor: 4/5 Value: 5/5
Jan. 11th, 2017

This is a very nice pure tea. The osmanthus flowers are a nice complement, but it's the oolong tea that shines. Heads up: the tea expands a *lot* in water, so use a smaller scoop than normal --- maybe a half size? Also, it resteeps very well.

Jan. 8th, 2017

This is an excellent floral-flavored green tea. The flavors blend beautifully and smoothly. For my second cup, I added a bit of honey, which managed to enhance the flavor without dominating it. Wonderfully sweet!

If you like floral teas (such as jasmine green teas), this is definitely one to try. Lavender and rose a...

Black Ginger Tea from Music City Tea

Style: Flavored Black Tea – Region: ?????

73 / 100 Aroma: 6/10 Flavor: 4/5 Value: 5/5
Jan. 7th, 2017

This is a solid black tea. People who enjoy lightly flavored, high quality black teas should like this one. The ginger is quite subtle -- the tea aroma and flavor dominate -- but the ginger came through more for the second cup. The tea makes multiple infusions quite nicely.

Jan. 4th, 2017

I *really* love this tea. It's rare I find a flavored white tea that I enjoy, but this one is simply great. The tea is smooth and soothing, the peach flavor tastes natural and nuanced, and they blend together seamlessly. The leaves are high quality, too.

I tried this tea and several others in the store before I boug...

Organic Ginger Tumeric Herbal Tea from Trader Joe's

Style: Herbal Tea – Region: ?????

90 / 100 Aroma: 8/10 Flavor: 5/5 Value: 5/5
Nov. 6th, 2016

This is a very good tea. The teabag has fannings that infuse very quickly. The aroma and the lingering flavor have the ginger/turmeric spiciness -- which is wakening yet soothing. This makes a particularly good drink for a brisk fall day. Though the second steep takes longer, it's also very good --better than many tea ...

Oct. 10th, 2016

This isn't the strongest or brightest peppermint tea, but it is real smooth and it hits the spot. No bitterness is detectable. I like peppermint far more than spearmint, so I was happy to see this in my sister's cupboard when visiting her. I'm currently in the middle of gestational diabetes, so I'm just excited to be a...

Jun. 23rd, 2016

Berries and hibiscus tea go together so well. The bold, tart flavor is delicious, and the fruit cuts what might otherwise be sour by adding more flavor and sweetness. This is a very well balanced herbal tea, in my opinion. I've only tried this tea hot so far, but it sounds perfect for chilled teas too. My only complain...

57 / 100 Aroma: 6/10 Flavor: 3/5 Value: 3/5
Jan. 4th, 2016

This is a green tea with various herbs and spices added. In my mind teas supposed to be medicinal taste cluttered. The flavor isn't bad (lightly of vanilla and sweetish herbs), but it isn't for me. I tried this one because it was sent as a free sample.

Nov. 3rd, 2015

Meh. It's not a badly done tea, but it's not a flavor I'm often into. The orange and herbaceousness both come through. Not bad if that's a taste mixture that appeals to you, but orange isn't my favorite fruit to drink hot. Still, the cup has grown on me a bit while I've been drinking it.

I actually really like this tea. The ginger gives it just the right kick when you're craving something with a tart spiciness. This herbal tea is pretty solid, in my opinion.

This herbal tea is pretty good. I detect a little bitterness, but the vanilla helps. It's a pretty smooth drink, and it made two decent cups. People who really like chamomile will likely enjoy this one.

Excellent herbal tea! The flavor and aroma are both dominated by pineapple and coconut--both of which I like. It's delightfully fresh and sweet without sweeteners. I do wish that the flavor was more intense, so I'll try a higher concentration next time. It brews easily without going bitter, and so can brew as long as ...

May. 13th, 2015

Not bad. The spices before brewing smell delicious, but their flavor is more muted in the drink. Both the spice and the chocolate are a bit more understated than I would like. I think I've been spoiled by hot chocolate when it comes to judging chocolate tea.

Certainly worth a shot, but still not the chocolate tea of...

Very good! Sweet, soothing, and rich without bitterness. One of the better blends I've found with peppermint. I actually tried this one in sachet form, but it's the same as their loose leaf. Definitely impressive for chamomile. I easily got two good cups out of it.

Surprisingly, I found this one acceptably enjoyable. The tea was nothing dazzling, but it wasn't bitter (after steeping briefly) and I got two cups out of it. The second cup was weaker, but still decent. The fannings infuse quickly, so you don't need to keep the bag in for long. I found this in the cupboard of a friend...

Not bad, but a bit too dominated by licorice (aroma and flavor) for my taste. Spicy, sweet, and best as a latte in my opinion. It doesn't go bitter easily, thankfully.

I remember drinking tea like this in Japan. It was never my favorite, unfortunately, but this didn't seem to be a bad sample of it. It has a sort of baked-like flavor that can be very hit or miss with me. Adding honey helped.

Quite solid tea. I only tried it straight, without milk or sugar. I suspect it'd be even better with milk and perhaps sweetener, but it's pretty good on its own. Cinnamon is definitely the strongest spice I smell. Decently substantial flavor without bitterness. If you're needing a cheap decaffeinated chai, this one isn...

Oooh, tasty! A non-caffeinated chai that's a lovely balance of spicy and sweet, with enough complexity to be interesting. It tastes like a red hot candy without the heat. It should be a dessert tea, I think. Easily the most impressed I've been with Celestial Seasonings so far.

I accidentally brewed this one near boiling, forgetting it was a white tea. I suspect this is why the first sip tasted a little bitter. I fixed this with just a bit of sugar, making it suddenly a near-perfect cup. I like this one even better than the ginger peach black tea! Also, this may be the first flavored white te...

A decent, keeps-it-simple vanilla rooibos. Loose leaf would definitely be better, but this is solid for a tea bag. You definitely need to be in the mood for a dessert tea, though. Good if you want a substantial, rich, after dinner drink that won't give you a buzz.

I tried it with milk added for the second cup. This ...

As with all tea bags I've tried from Republic of Tea, I recommend a short steep with this one. Less than a minute works fine. You get plenty of flavor, no bitterness, and a serviceable (though weaker) second cup.

This seemed to be a high quality Earl Grey, but that style of tea isn't my favorite. The tea was definit...
