Super Ceylon Cardamom Gold from Alghazaleen Tea (Do Ghazal)

Style: Flavored Black Tea – Region: Sri Lanka / Ceylon

70 / 100 Aroma: 7/10 Flavor: 4/5 Value: 5/5
Mar. 28th, 2021

Cup at home, made from fine dark brown and black leaves of Ceylon. Pours slightly hazy dark copper brown. Clear aroma of black tea leaves, malty with notes and touches of cardamom. Ditto flavour, although the malty notes are less pronounced than in the aroma. Bitter, astringent but not aggressive, palate, with a leafy ...

F.B.O.P. No. 1 from Alwazah Tea (Swan Brand)

Style: Ceylon Black Tea – Region: Sri Lanka / Ceylon

86 / 100 Aroma: 8/10 Flavor: 4/5 Value: 5/5
Feb. 22nd, 2021

This was another fantastic find at a local middle-eastern store. I am already a huge fan of Ahmad and Alghazaleen teas, and this was another tea in the same genre, yet with some interesting differences from those. Of those teas, this one tasted most similar to Ahmad's Ceylon OPA, but I liked it better.

The dry leaf ...

Feb. 21st, 2021

This is a wonderful classic cup of tea to enjoy in the mornings. It is smooth and easy to drink and it is thick bodied and flavorful without being too strong. The smell is like a normal tea. The value is what does it for me and why it is such a great tea to drink every morning, it is so cheap!

Jan. 8th, 2021

The aroma is mild with a bit of spiciness. The liquor is a very dark brown. Strong flavor, with a smoky after taste that stays on the tongue. A good 'strong' tea.

Masala Chai from Adagio Teas

Style: Chai / Spiced Tea – Region: Sri Lanka / Ceylon

86 / 100 Aroma: 9/10 Flavor: 5/5 Value: 5/5
Dec. 26th, 2020

Prep: 212F, 10min (per tea), sample bag, 8oz

Aroma: Very traditional cinnamon and spice aromas jump out of the mug here. I’m expecting this to be quite spicy. 9/10

Flavor: Fairly good pop of cinnamon and clove notes. This doesn’t overwhelm your palate with spice but it bring back memories of chai spiced la...

Ceylon Mahagastotte Estate from Simpson & Vail

Style: Ceylon Black Tea – Region: Nuwara Eliya, Sri Lanka

70 / 100 Aroma: 7/10 Flavor: 4/5 Value: 4/5
Nov. 19th, 2020

This tea is mild all around. The aroma is slightly fruit. The liquor brews to a gold/amber. Flavor is a traditional Ceylon. Would probably be eclipsed by milk or sugar.

Nov. 18th, 2020

This tea has large twisted leaves. The aroma is sweet/fruit. Liquor is a deep honey color. I brewed for 5 minutes. Has a solid Ceylon taste. Clean, with a slight nuttiness after taste.

80 / 100 Aroma: 10/10 Flavor: 3/5 Value: 4/5
Sep. 13th, 2020

Received as a gift about a year ago (but in sealed teabags).

Aroma: dry tea has a rich strawberry flavor.

Flavor: fruit flavor is not very apparent which is a bit disappointing. Apart from that it's a decent tea. May try it with hotter water (I know you're not supposed to boil green tea!) or see if it works bette...

90 / 100 Aroma: 8/10 Flavor: 5/5 Value: 5/5
Aug. 27th, 2020

For me this is a quintessential Ceylon. Wonderful mild earthy aroma. Liquor is a place amber. Clean taste, with a hint of fruit. Glad I have tried this. Will reorder in the future.

Somerset Estate BOP from Upton Tea Imports

50 / 100 Aroma: 7/10 Flavor: 2/5 Value: 4/5
May. 4th, 2020

An unspectacular but good enough Ceylon tea. The aroma has a hint of freshly baked muffins to it. A 3 minute steep (which is what the directions called for) results in a bland but perfectly drinkable beverage.

May. 1st, 2020

Dry, this tea smells vaguely of cocoa and molasses. It's understated, but pleasant. While brewing, the aroma is of light brown sugar, but not heavy. The cocoa from earlier is still there, but less pronounced than I expected based on the initial aroma and experience with other Sri Lankan teas. There's a faint note of ra...

80 / 100 Aroma: 8/10 Flavor: 5/5 Value: 4/5
Apr. 23rd, 2020

This tea has a pleasant mild earthiness. The liquor is a dark brown color. Mild flavor, with a subtle sweet/honey after taste. Certainly worth a try. I will purchase this tea again in the future.

Apr. 21st, 2020

You simply can't go wrong with this tea. The average tea drinker who buys bags of Lipton or Tetley would probably agree, because this is like a premium version of those products. This is smooth and pleasant, but not lacking in flavor. It contains dashes of caramel, fruit, steely tannins and a fresh, leafy aroma. It...

Jan. 15th, 2020

I was astonished by this tea's quality as well as value for its price. One of my friends recently bought this from a Russian market, and he had only recently opened the container so it was very fresh.

The dry leaf though is explosively aromatic. This is by far the most aromatic Ceylon black tea I've ever found in th...

53 / 100 Aroma: 4/10 Flavor: 2/5 Value: 3/5
Dec. 29th, 2019

I’m not crazy about this tea, but it may because the water I’m using is too hot — making it go bitter more easily. I am currently at my family’s for the holidays, and my method of brewing is to dispense hit water from a Keurig. The Apple is somewhat present but not strong or sweet enough to counteract the bitte...

64 / 100 Aroma: 10/10 Flavor: 3/5 Value: 2/5
Dec. 5th, 2019

Basilur is creative in the packaging and marketing of their teas. This is part of an impressively elaborate gimmick: the second in a multi-volume series of well-decorated "books"—each a metal tin about the size and shape of a small hardback book—containing a plastic bag full of loose tea that gets folded and some...

Oct. 4th, 2019

I'm reviewing the version of their loose-leaf "Premium" that comes in a 400g resealable plastic sack, which I got new/unopened at an estate sale. The leaves are very finely chopped, small, almost granular, as if they were part of a mechanical, one-size-fits-all process for both bagged and loose-leaf offerings. The wo...

70 / 100 Aroma: 6/10 Flavor: 4/5 Value: 5/5
Jul. 22nd, 2019

I am a little confused about the labeling of this tea. It says it is high grown but the tea I have had from Ceylon that is grown at 6000 feet is usually a lot lighter in color and not quite as bold in taste. This tea is fairly dark in color and very bold in flavor. It actually taste like a blended tea or a lower grown ...

Jul. 2nd, 2019

Tropical fruits, peaches, and flavored black teas all tickle my fancy, so this offering from a Dollar Tree store promised to be worthwhile, as long as they used natural flavors (check), and didn't skimp on the flavoring itself (check). [TEViVE could use more tea, however...more on that below.]

As with their other...

Jun. 18th, 2019

This was an exceptional tea and without a doubt one of the best Ceylons I've sampled ever. I like Ceylons, but outside of the ones from teakruthi, it's rare I find ones that stand out. This is one of them!

The leaf looks very straightforward, made of large broken pieces of wiry leaf, uniform in texture and dark gray...

A good Ceylon tea that is similar to mainstream teas like Tetley, only better. A bit more body and smoke to it. I hope this is offered again at some point.

Feb. 20th, 2019

I picked this up in a Middle Eastern grocery near Detroit, MI. I bought a 250g pouch of tea that turned out to be double-bagged with an outer mylar pouch and a thin plastic bag inside. The tea is quite broken and in relatively small pieces, but quite aromatic even when dry. It smells of caramel and pastry, like slightl...

Jan. 10th, 2019

Without beating around the bush, this is a really good Sri Lankan/Ceylon tea. This seems to be one of the few brands of bagged tea that selected Sri Lankan tea for its flavors rather than for simply being "mild". This tea is remarkably similar in flavor to Ahmad and Alwazah branded Ceylon teas that are available from M...
