Season's Pick Assam GFOP Organic from Upton Tea Imports

Style: Assam – Region: Assam, India

80 / 100 Aroma: 9/10 Flavor: 4/5 Value: 4/5
Feb. 25th, 2024

The aroma is nice, but mild, it has the earthy with hint od spice that is expected from a Assam. The liquor (5min steep) is a pleasant deep brown. The flavor is very mild with no after taste. Certainly, a decent all day sipping tea, with nothing remarkable about the tase.

Darjeeling (Teabags) from Whittard of Chelsea

Style: Darjeeling Black Tea – Region: Darjeeling, India

69 / 100 Aroma: 6/10 Flavor: 4/5 Value: 4/5
Dec. 3rd, 2023

The photo is from Whittard's website where (as of this writing) 50 round, stringless bags sell for USD $9.50, not too bad for what I presume to be a decent-quality Darjeeling. [They also sell loose-leaf Darjeeling.] Mine came from a 5-bag sampler pack, each bag being of the fold-over type stapled to a string and tag....

Darjeeling FTGFOP1 Premium Blend from Upton Tea Imports

Style: Darjeeling Black Tea – Region: Darjeeling, India

60 / 100 Aroma: 8/10 Flavor: 3/5 Value: 3/5
Oct. 28th, 2023

This is a light and easy Darjeeling which tastes fine, but is a little lacking in body and flavor. It blends well with milk or lemon. The lightly sweet, earthy aroma of the tea leaves is its best point. Despite the impressive name, this is a pretty ordinary tea, and sells for an average price.

Organic Nilgiri Black Tea from Trader Joe's

Style: Black Tea – Region: Nilgiri, India

65 / 100 Aroma: 5/10 Flavor: 4/5 Value: 4/5
Oct. 26th, 2023

This was a strange black tea, in that the in-cup and dry-bag aroma differed more from the flavor than the great majority of black teas I've had. As it turns out, that's a good thing, because the aroma wasn't bad—just weak and weird. The smells were reminiscent of something I don't often associate with tea: mild ch...

Aroma is an earthy scent, with a hint of fruit (peaches, maybe?). The liquor (5 minute steep) is a clear, dark brown, Flavor is classic Assam with a slight maltiness, very smooth. I would say this tea will be good for all day sipping. Subtle flavor.

Really nice cup of tea! It was thick bodied and the flavor was rich and sweet. I didn’t notice much of an aroma however, but I could be having sinus issues now. I’ll come back and update my review if I notice more of an aroma later! But either way it still is a rly nice tea!

Aroma is not too strong but it does smell nice and interesting too! It actually has notes of raspberry in the aroma and taste and it’s rly unique and good! Otherwise it just tastes like a very classic assam tea, there is no objectionable astringentness or bitterness.

Nov. 24th, 2022

This was a rather strong, but high-quality Assam sold for an exceptionally good price.

The dry leaf has a potent aroma, spicy and fruity. I already notice the raspberry notes even in the dry leaf. But the aroma somehow betrays a slight harshness: I can tell this is going to be a tea with a bit of an edge, even befor...

Nov. 19th, 2022

The aroma of this tea is wonderful and bready and the aroma doesn’t wear off as you drink it. The taste is very smooth and honestly very “normal.” I like this tea because it is not astringent and it makes me feel good after drinking it (some teas don’t fully agree with me). For how normal this tea is though, it...

Nov. 18th, 2022

This was a smoother, higher-grade Assam that had a much lighter character than is typical for an Assam.

The dry leaf is pretty aesthetically pleasing, it actually looks much nicer than the picture S&V provided on their website: lots of tip, which looks more pale and less golden than some. Its aroma is rather fruity ...

This presents a very pleasant aroma but very little flavor. It is a mild, bland Darjeeling that should have been offered at a low price.

Jul. 28th, 2021

The aroma is nice, with a subtle sweetness, earning the 'winey' designation. The liquor brewed (five minutes) to a dark brown. Solid Assam taste with a slight tangy after taste that stays on the tongue. This tea might pair well with milk or sugar.

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...
