Premium Leaf Tea from Dilmah

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

65 / 100 Aroma: 5/10 Flavor: 4/5 Value: 4/5
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...

Peach & Passion Fruit from TEViVE

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

79 / 100 Aroma: 8/10 Flavor: 5/5 Value: 4/5
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...

Nuwara Eliya from Tea Tang

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

70 / 100 Aroma: 7/10 Flavor: 4/5 Value: 3/5
Dec. 12th, 2016

The regal, royal language on the packaging and website convey an image of heavenly bliss upon being graced with the blessing of having this tea's flavor touch one's tongue. Well, it ain't that spectacular, but this curiously named offering is fairly delicious.

As sometimes is the case, I got an unopened and seale...

Oriental Treasure Green Tea from Bentley's Tea

Style: Green Tea – Region: Sri Lanka / Ceylon

50 / 100 Aroma: 4/10 Flavor: 3/5 Value: 3/5
Dec. 1st, 2016

An unopened and sealed box of 20 bags was available at an estate sale, so I grabbed it with no particular expectations. It delivered no particular impression, so I guess you can say expectations were met! :-)

The tea tasted like a fairly standard-order green tea, neither bad nor excellent in any given way. It is...

Premium Blend Tea from Bigelow Tea

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

53 / 100 Aroma: 4/10 Flavor: 3/5 Value: 4/5
Nov. 12th, 2016

This offering has been rebranded simply, "Premium Tea".

It offers a rich, dark color and flavor after steeping for 5 minutes instead of the recommended 2, but that does come at the expense of quite noticeably more bitterness than usual for most black teas I've immersed that long. I'm not big on bitterness, nor c...

Maple Tea from Metropolitan Tea Company

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

77 / 100 Aroma: 9/10 Flavor: 4/5 Value: 3/5
Oct. 27th, 2016

I first tried some of this tea back in 2006 after seeing it in some tourist shops in Victoria, BC. [This review is posted ten years later after getting some more, also in Victoria.] The stuff is expensive; after all, retail markups are pretty steep for anything marketed as characteristically Canadian in such places. ...

Lemon and Lime Black Tea from Basilur

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

67 / 100 Aroma: 5/10 Flavor: 4/5 Value: 4/5
Jul. 10th, 2016

Do you like smooth, non-bitter, black tea? Do you like 7Up? Drop a tablespoon of 7Up (or Diet 7Up if you prefer your tea unsweetened), into a cup of smooth black tea, and you will do a reasonable approximation of this drink.

Basilur Lemon and Lime is not as strong as I'd like in flavor or aroma, but is an easygo...

Love Story from Basilur

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

67 / 100 Aroma: 8/10 Flavor: 3/5 Value: 2/5
Apr. 8th, 2016

I'm a dude. This tea is marketed to the ladies in a blatant, pandering, almost cartoonishly patronizing way with its pinkish packaging, "book of tea" self-characterization, cursive script, and use of phrases like, "mystify your senses," "reminisce romantic, unforgettable memories", and "fantasize many more years of lo...
