English Breakfast from Lipton Tea

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...

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.

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...

English Breakfast from Revolution Tea

Dec. 2nd, 2019

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...

Yorkshire Tea Traditional from Yorkshire Tea

Style: Black Tea – Region: Blend

64 / 100 Aroma: 6/10 Flavor: 4/5 Value: 3/5
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...

Black Label Breakfast Fannings from Upton Tea Imports

85 / 100 Aroma: 8/10 Flavor: 5/5 Value: 5/5
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.

Original Blend from Lyons

Oct. 17th, 2019

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...

Oct. 14th, 2019

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...

Bold Breakfast from Dunkin Donuts

63 / 100 Aroma: 7/10 Flavor: 4/5 Value: 2/5
May. 31st, 2019

I bought a cup of this from a Dunkin Donuts and liked it, so I bought a box to brew at home. The sachets are large and each contains 3g of finely-chopped tea. The box doesn't say which teas are in the blend (other than "from around the World"), but the tea looks orthodox rather than CTC.

The brewing tea has a strong...

I really like this tea. It doesn't overpower with a single flavor, indicative of a good blend.

Royal Blend from Fortnum & Mason

73 / 100 Aroma: 7/10 Flavor: 4/5 Value: 3/5
Mar. 27th, 2019

This has a smooth, rich flavor, although with a touch of sharpness (short steeping time is better). It practically begs to have milk added, which I don't typically do. Taken black, I find it a little lacking in sweetness. The aroma comes more from the Ceylon and is pleasantly nutty, while the Assam ensures a malty fini...

English Breakfast from Stash Tea

Style: English Breakfast – Region: Blend

Mar. 24th, 2019

The most notable aspect of the flavor is that it's tannic, although not overly so. Still, it lacks much else to recommend it. I'd rather it had a bit more citrus to balance it, but there's just not a lot to it.

This strikes me as a tea perhaps intended for coffee drinkers looking to switch it up. It's also mild en...

Mar. 21st, 2019

This has a pleasant, earthy aroma that fades too quickly once you drink it. I was let down by the fairly bland taste. It's labeled as a blend of Ceylon and Indian teas; the Ceylon taste comes through the strongest and there isn't much to it past that.

It's acceptable with some additions, but I doubt I'd get it agai...

A good all-purpose, pretty mellow black tea. This blend of Keemun, Ceylon, and Darjeeling is a notch above supermarket teas.

A smooth and enjoyable tea. Not as hearty as claimed, but it is not wimpy either. Good with milk or with lemon and sugar. Worth the bargain price.

Mar. 19th, 2019

I usually enjoy Upton's British style tea blends and this is no exception. The mix of malty Assam with a lightly smoky Yunnan makes a super all-around tea. It is good with milk, or in a masala chai, and lemon and sugar, while eccentric, also works.

It's a very good tea without anything that makes it stand out. Just a well balanced blend.

I would like to try this loose-leaf.

My favorite breakfast tea. Less earthy than Adagio's English Breakfast tea, and smoother. Sadly, a little bit costly.

This is called an Irish breakfast, but for my tastebuds it seemed closer to an English breakfast or even a mainstream prebagged tea. It is pretty versatile and mellow. It goes best with milk but can take lemon or be used for masala also. Good.

This is one of the best breakfast teas I have ever tasted. This tea is a blend of a high grown Ceylon black tea and Assam black tea. It has several golden tips in the tea. It has a fine aroma, and a very fruity taste with a little malt from the Assam. I first had this tea at an upscale restaurant in Nashville where it ...

A good versatile blend that works well with milk or lemon/lime. Probably would be good on ice too. Fairly smooth with some iron/cedar taste. Good value too.

After bringing this breakfast tea home from a conference, I tried it at dinnertime while eating a tub of cottage cheese. The tea brewed up very dark, quickly, such that a spoon disappeared from view below about the top two inches of liquid. This wasn't too surprising, considering how finely chopped the dry-bag leaves...

Jan. 20th, 2019

"Devonshire" has one of the most full-bodied dry-bag aromas I've gotten from a breakfast tea, and unusually, it nearly matches the flavor for intensity. I detected virtually no difference between dry-bag scent, in-cup scent, and taste, the latter likewise being straightforwardly well-constructed within a nice, dark br...
