This tea has a very nice blend of maltiness and citrus at an extremely good value!

Pineapple Waikiki Black Tea from Hawaiian Islands Tea Company

Jan. 7th, 2018

Being a fan of pineapple as a taste, and seeing that this offering was reasonably inexpensive (for Hawaii anyway) at the Wal Mart in Kona, I figured to give it a try. While not bad, each step of the process disappointed me a bit more, leaving an impression less favorable than the potential.

Each tea bag in a standa...

Jan. 1st, 2018

The dry tea in the bags is finely chopped and smells strong and malty, like most grocery store Assam blends.

I steeped it for four minutes in boiling water and the brewed tea is more complex than I expected. The strong malt flavor has chocolate and molasses notes that set it apart from other Assam blends. It's moder...

Not a bad tea at all. I usually double bag it though since I like my tea strong and plentiful. I've had a lot of this as my old work used to stock it and I was never disappointed per se, but always wished it was a little better.

This tea is OK. It's like the dregs of the English Breakfast tea though. Smaller cut, like the English tea was shaken and this is what fell out. You might be disappointed if you like the English, but I'm sure this is very good if you prefer Irish Breakfast.

Overpriced for what you get. I like the tin though. This is a utility tea; it'll wake you up without being unpleasant tasting.

Found this at the Sacramento Natural Foods Coop when looking for an alternative to the tea at my motel. I really like this tea. I brewed for 5 minutes and it has a slightly sweet flavor. I didn't detect any bitterness or astringency to it. It's very smooth. At a little more than $3 for 20 bags it seems like a good deal...

This tea smelled fantastic, but it was disappointing when I actually brewed it. It also didn't seem to match the commercial description or my expectations for an English Breakfast blend.

The dry leaf has a fresh, light fruity aroma, smelling very sweet and bright. The fruitiness is more like fresh grapes than drie...

Really delicious tea!!! I am heartbroken that Lipton Tea has decided to discontinue English Breakfast tea...my favorite tea. Now I have to go and find a brand of English Breakfast tea that tastes just as good. Any ideas?

Count me in the upper-middle on this one—not quite as impressed as Alex (probably due to my lesser ability to detect subtleties) but certainly not as disappointed as some of the other reviewers further down the list either. It was good, and I'd drink more, for sure...just not for the price, when comparable bagged te...

This tea is very good for a typical black tea. At around 20 cents per cup, it is a pretty decent value. It is very thick bodied and strong and it's a great tea to start my morning off with! It is also really interesting because, although its very similar to an english breakfast tea, it's slightly smokier and has a grea...

I got a sample of this in my last order from MTW. It looks just like the photo on the web page, not CTC but not whole leaf either. Looks like it came from a teabag.

I brewed it 4 minutes using boiling water per instructions. It had a slightly muddy appearance. The main impression was astringency, that coated the ton...

Twinings teas in general consistently fail to impress me, though before this, I mostly had tried a few of their bagged offerings. A box of this was available at an estate sale, really cheap, so I figured to give it a run. While it's better than their bagged teas, and not a bad tea at all, I'm still no fan.

Organic Breakfast from Mighty Leaf Tea

Sep. 2nd, 2017

I've recently started looking for Fair Trade Certified teas, so I decided to try a box of Mighty Leaf tea.

My first impression is that the tea is lower quality than the packaging and price would indicate. The box says that the sachets contain "whole leaf tea," but the tea in the sachets is in quite small pieces, not...

Sep. 1st, 2017

The dry tea is CTC tea that has been ground up further, almost to dust. It smells earthy and vegetal.

The scent of the brewing tea is oaky, but mild. The flavor is stronger than the aroma would indicate, but is still quite mellow. The tea has nice body, but the flavors are muted. It's not particularly bitter or astr...

The commercial description of this tea is pretty grandiose...it makes it sound like a masterpiece of blending, and I would say it's not.

To me, this is a classic but somewhat run-of-the-mill blend that is enjoyable but stands out in no way. I would not describe it as complex, although it's a good bit more complex, ...

Other reviews of this tea seemed to be about the bagged variety, so I hope it's OK to create a new category.

This is the first loose leaf tea I ever tried, mostly because it's the only one I could find. It's about $10 for 7ozs. at Cost Plus.

It has a faint smell in the can. It has small leaves with flecks of go...

This is truly a seamless blend, as Adagio calls it, of their Ceylon Sonata and Assam Melody teas. It stands up well to milk and sugar, but doesn't *need* it as some Irish Breakfast teas do.

The aroma of this was unique. It was much smoother than other black teas I've tried (including English and Irish Breakfast teas). The flavor was pretty good, though it really seems to want for milk, cream, or non-dairy milk, as it seemed to be missing something to drink it alone. There was only a bit of bitterness and ...

Has a full, rich aroma. Good amber color. Nice, rich flavor. All the flavor of a full leaf with the convenience of a tea bag. I take this along to my favor breakfast place, I enjoy this more than the Lipton the restaurant serves.

To be honest, I didn't personally care for this tea :/ I mean this tea was a great value considering each box contains a whopping 55 bags compared to twinning's 20, but the flavor just wasn't there for me. The taste was rather bitter, but not in a strong and robust way, but almost like pool water. like chlorine. I can ...

I know I don't like English blend tea, but this tea was very cheap (regular price €1.40 for 100 g, and it was on a 35% discount) and I figured that since it's loose tea I'll have more control, and it might end up tasting decent.

Wrong.
It tastes and smells like any other cheap English blend from flat teabags: sou...

Cutting open a dry teabag, the tea is small pieces of CTC pellets. It smells nice, but generic; the aroma is oak leaves and malt without much complexity.

Adding the water brings out the Assam in the blend. The sour, malty aroma is quite rich. The first taste of the tea is a surprise in that teas that smell like the ...
