Singlijian Estate Assam from Upton Tea Imports

Wonderful aroma, with a slight sweetness. The liquor brews to a dark brown. The flavor is solid Assam, no after taste or hints of anything but tea. I will buy this again.

The aroma is classic Assam with a hint of fruit (peach for me). The liquor is a pleasant dark brown. The taste is good, with a slight sweet after taste that lingers for a moment.

Assam TGFOP1 Ananda Second Flush from TeaGschwendner

80 / 100 Aroma: 7/10 Flavor: 4/5 Value: 3/5
Apr. 2nd, 2021

This tea is a classic tasting black tea however it is not my favorite and it is mildly harsh (bitter) for me. It's still pretty smooth and not astringent which I like and I would drink it again if someone served it to me. It's a bit expensive though so I probably wouldn't buy it again since there's better stuff out the...

Apr. 2nd, 2021

This tea is named somewhat differently in the US vs Europe but I'm pretty sure it's the same. In Germany it's "Assam TGFOP1 Ananda" with "Second Flush" underneath, whereas in the US the grade is omitted in the name, but clarified in the tea's description so I'm pretty sure it's the same thing.

Irish Breakfast from Frontier

Style: Irish Breakfast – Region: India

81 / 100 Aroma: 7/10 Flavor: 4/5 Value: 4/5
Mar. 21st, 2021

This tea was spot-on in terms of style for Irish Breakfast, and one of the better examples of it at that.

The leaf is broken but the pieces of leaf are still recognizable as such, especially after steeping. The dry leaf has a pleasant aroma that suggests a strong, fresh tea. It infuses fairly quickly to produce a po...

Kumaon Black Tea from Frontier

Mar. 14th, 2021

I've been curious about teas from the Kumaon region of India for some time, but had yet to get my hands on one until now. What a surprise when the local food co-op got this in stock in their display of Frontier's bulk teas and spices!

The leaf is very fine, and strongly aromatic. The still-rather-intact leaf is tiny...

Mar. 14th, 2021

This tea is definitely very unique but super tasty. It kind of tastes like dried fruit and it’s a little spicy but not super harsh or anything. If you’re looking for an interesting yet tasty tea that’s different from your average breakfast tea, try this!

Singbulli Estate Second Flush (2020 EX-38) Organic Darjeeling SFTGFOP1 (TD148) from Upton Tea Imports

75 / 100 Aroma: 10/10 Flavor: 4/5 Value: 1/5
Feb. 24th, 2021

Part of Upton's Great Tea Race Collection, this Darjeeling crosses the finish line with a fine aroma and impressive flavor. There are notes of caramel, fresh leaves, and mild tannins. It is very expensive however - it costs 3 times the price of an ordinary Darjeeling, but does not offer 3 times the quality imo. Nice...

Clove aroma and taste with additional whiffs of I don't know what.. maybe nutmeg and black pepper.

Overall very pleasant. I got a sample of this and will definitely get more. A good choice late in the day for a caffeine free cup

Half-litre pot at home, made from a sample included in the tea company's Advent Tea Calendar (2020) and consisting of fine, wiry leaves of Assam tea in all shades of brown.

55 / 100 Aroma: 6/10 Flavor: 2/5 Value: 4/5
Dec. 7th, 2020

It seems that many before me have been bigger fans of this than I am. That said, this tea is fine for the teabag price point.

Aroma: The spice is there. It’s a bit muddy but you know this is a spiced tea very easily.

Flavor: Prepared as the box states but there isn’t much here. A bit of a spiced water but ...

Sep. 26th, 2020

Half-litre cup at home, made from fine small green, brown and yellow leaves. Pours clear peach yellow (against white china) with no sediment. Very mild aroma of fresh leaves, much faintier than the loose leaves themselves emit. Mild, leafy but fresh and pure flavour of black tea, with floral touches. A delicate palate,...

Half-litre pot at home, made from a blend of seven different strong and flavourful black teas (the company does not specify which ones, but repeats it trice in the description of the tea that the teas are strong; hm...).

This earl grey had the strangest green unripe taste. I wasn’t a fan which is disappointing since I had high hopes after trying their Assam.

Pleasant and mild aroma, this tea has a nice appearance. Dark leaves with some golden tips. The liquor is dark brown with a hint of honey color. Tasty and smooth on the tongue. A nice hint of malt.

Jun. 2nd, 2020

Taylor's has/had a "Pure Assam". Does the absence of that adjective here make this one "impure" by default? :-)

Seriously, I don't know if "Assam Tea" is the same as "Pure Assam", repackaged and rebranded, or a parallel offering. It has been a few years since I tried and reviewed "Pure Assam", so I can't compare...

May. 4th, 2020

The dry tea has almost no odor at all. The teabag smells slightly woody, which could either be from the tea or the paper. The tea looks to be CTC pellets that were ground up further. I wonder if the "Pure Assam" that this tea seems to have replaced was orthodox tea and that's the difference.

This tea smells tannic a...

Cardamom Masala Chai from Vahdam Teas

Style: Chai / Spiced Tea – Region: Kerala, India

50 / 100 Aroma: 6/10 Flavor: 3/5 Value: 2/5
Apr. 27th, 2020

I enjoyed this tea but, in my opinion, it lacked aroma, robustness and body. The balance between the cardamom and the tea was ok, the caradamom was not overwhleming but the tea aromas were too subtle for me.

I like Vahdam teas, but this one wasn't one of my favourite cups.

Feb. 17th, 2020

Similarly to my review of TJ's Darjeeling white tea, I hope this isn't very representative of Darjeeling greens; for it lacks aroma and flavor. The dry-bag aroma is basically nil, with the in-cup scent only very faint. Only the wet bag has something resembling a smell I would associate with green tea, and it's still ...

This was my first Darjeeling white tea, and it's about as impressive as sitting through an hour-long staff meeting with a well-advertised, nicely dressed, but ultimately monotonic guest speaker droning on about an uninteresting subject.

At first, I was intrigued. The best part of the experience was the dry-bag ar...
