Earl Grey Loose Tea from Bigelow Tea

Style: Earl Grey Tea – Region: Blend

95 / 100 Aroma: 10/10 Flavor: 5/5 Value: 4/5
Feb. 13th, 2020

This is the first time I'm trying Bigelow Earl Grey in loose form. I've purchased the teabags in the past, but from other experiences, I know that the loose tea and teabags don't always have the same taste.

My first impression was that, compared to other black earl grey teas I've gotten in tins, this variety has muc...

Feb. 11th, 2020

I bring news! Whether it's good news or not is up to the reader. This tea, as a brand with the same name, is not retired after all, as of Feb. 2020. Instead, it has found its way to the food-service division of Unilever, Lipton's corporate overlord. I'll upload a photo of its newest packaging separately. I was abl...

Passion Filterbag from Tazo Tea

Style: Herbal Tea – Region: Blend

Jan. 23rd, 2020

Aroma is very citrus driven with a subtle spice. The flavor is strong in this tea and a single tea bag can support 16 ounces of hot water. I like this tea because it’s almost like having a wild fermented beer with the acid presence. That said, it’s fairly one note.

Green Tea Kombucha from Yogi Tea

Jan. 19th, 2020

It didn't taste like green tea. It didn't taste like kombucha. It didn't affect me like kombucha, which typically leaves me with a positive feeling. It actually gave me a headache, despite the fact that I've had all the ingredients in this tea separately and never had a negative reaction to any of them. The flavor wasn...

Upton South Street Breakfast Blend from Upton Tea Imports

Style: Black Tea – Region: Blend

65 / 100 Aroma: 8/10 Flavor: 4/5 Value: 2/5
Jan. 6th, 2020

This is a new entry in Upton's growing list of breakfast blends; it was created as on of their 30th anniversary specials. It is not as robust or malty as some breakfast blends, but not extra mild either - it falls somewhere in the middle. This has a little nip to it. The price is a little high.

Peppermint Chocolate from Republic of Tea

Jan. 1st, 2020

Chocolate and peppermint are two of my favorite flavors in all this mighty land. As such, I'm a major sucker for trying such teas, even expensive ones like this or Harney & Sons. So I grabbed a tin* of the R of T version at a local World Market, as a minor Christmas present to myself.

The dry-bag and wet-bag ar...

Dec. 27th, 2019

The scent of this was delicious. The scent of the tea after brewing was delicious. But, there wasn't much to the flavor. At the end of the cup, after the tea had cooled, the notes sat on my palette better. But, something about the notes bypassed my palette when the tea was hot. This might be good as an iced tea. But, a...

Style: Earl Grey Tea – Region: Blend

85 / 100 Aroma: 7/10 Flavor: 4/5 Value: 3/5
Dec. 23rd, 2019

This smells and tastes like some halfway point between Bigelow Earl Grey and Twinings Earl Grey. With Bigelow, the bergamot note is strong and pointed and the tea has a more earthy taste. With Twinings, the bergamot note is more gentle and the tea has a more woody taste. With Harney & Sons Earl Grey, the bergamot note ...

Dec. 17th, 2019

Being in Oklahoma, the name of this seasonal tea intrigued me a lot, even though the storms inspiring it are cold, wet wintertime blasts on the British Columbia coast, instead of southern Plains severe thunderstorms and tornadoes. Then again, that makes sense. What would tornado tea be, and would it even matter? The...

58 / 100 Aroma: 4/10 Flavor: 4/5 Value: 4/5
Dec. 14th, 2019

This blend has some potential, but is far from my favorite flavored black tea. The first and biggest turnoff was the dry-bag aroma, which reminded me of cheap incense—specifically, the sort employed to smoke-bomb a room fast, in order to mask pot usage. This is the second tea that has given off that cheap-incense v...

The next entry from a Revolution variety pack delivered one of the strangest experiences I've had with a tea. Sniffing the dry bag (pyramid sachet) rendered an unmistakably familiar aroma that took me many tries to recall its specific origin. "Sniff, sniff, sniff...I know this...sniff, sniff, sniff...where have I sme...

Dec. 1st, 2019

Yorkshire is a basic, moderately strong, reasonably tasty, unassuming black-tea blend—nothing special, but still just bold enough to sneak into the upper 40th percentile of bagged black teas I've had.

The dry-bag aroma and in-cup smell and taste can be described the same way: plain, short on standout notes or c...

Nov. 27th, 2019

Here's the first tea I've tried from a Revolution variety pack, and it was a pleasant surprise! The ingredients list looked promising, with a blend of Ceylon, Darjeeling and "Foromosa" (presumably Formosa, misspelled) oolong, French lavender flowers, and bergamot oil.

It was impossible not to compare this to anothe...

Nov. 24th, 2019

This tea has an 'earthy woodsy' aroma. Fannings grade so it is a powder, a pound filled the large storage canister to the top. The liquor is a nice medium brown. Good flavor with no after taste. I will buy this tea again.

Cool Mint from Dunkin Donuts

Nov. 21st, 2019

This is a peppermint blend. The peppermint is high quality, isn't weedy tasting, and has a nice menthol finish. There's a floral background flavor that's nice, but I ultimately think that the peppermint is cut with too much filler.

I'd order this again at a Dunkin Donuts if I didn't want something caffeinated, but a...

Nov. 17th, 2019

I think that this is the first time I will have said (or written) this, but I actually prefer the teabag form of this tea. The balance of flavors is off in this. I've tried four different ways of brewing it, changing both the times and the amount of tea, but nothing felt quite right.

Using 2 1/2 tsp for 2 min using...

Now this was an unexpected treat! Rarely (if ever) have I had the loose and bagged version of a tea from the same company, at the same time, from the same order. Not only that, they're rather different (how?), but both delicious. I specifically had ordered the EG loose mainly for my wife, and the EG bags came in a v...

Caveat: Constant Comment is one of my very favorite teas, so even a noticeable dropoff from that still garners a favorable rating from me.

The Good: As bagged decaf teas go, this is one of the most tolerable, and dare I say pleasant. Most of the wonderfully clove/orange/cinnamon aroma and flavor of original Const...

Nov. 10th, 2019

This is tea from a tea bag, so right from the start, we're not dealing with the best quality. But, this sort of tea isn't for having a gourmet experience. If it were, they wouldn't sell it for a few dollars at the local supermarket. It's a daily tea. On that level, it does fine.

The flavor profile is different from ...

Although good, and a decent value for the currency-adjusted price, this tea fell slightly off expectations for a company that usually yields outstanding quality. Maybe the loose-leaf version is better, and the latter certainly smelled amazing in their Victoria store.

The dry-bag smell was curiously weak in cinnamon...

Here Yogi offers a caramel-flavored blend that has a few ingredients not listed in the more-established "Bedtime" offering, and vice versa. Perhaps they are different enough that this version deserves its own independent title. For reasons elucidated below, I propose "Sweet Desert Dust Storm". Would the marketing ...

I'm on a quest to try all the Irish teas, and Lyon's was on the list. I hear there is a rivalry of sorts between Lyon's and Barry's and I can see why. Both are quite good and I would be happy to drink either.

Lyon's is similar to Barry's Gold blend, and I found it to be a tad smoother, and Barry's to be a little bri...

This arrived as a member of a sampler pack that I ordered, to try some Murchie's offerings not yet chugged.

While pleasant and reasonably robust, it still is probably the mildest black tea I've tried (loose or bagged) from Murchie's, which says more about the strength of their other teas than any glaring deficienc...

We gleefully had sniffed demo leaves of Murchie's Earl Grey in their Victoria store before, but since had brought home and ordered only the tea bags of the cream version (Earl Grey Cream).
