Assam Gold Rain Black Tea from Teavana

Style: Assam – Region: Assam, India

67 / 100 Aroma: 6/10 Flavor: 4/5 Value: 3/5
Feb. 22nd, 2013

If you like a strong black tea then this one is for you. This tea has the smell of a traditional Assam with a hint of a fruity undertone that you just can't put your finger on. The steeped liquor is a beautiful amber color. This tea is full bodied, strong, malty, astringent, and very tannic. This tea lingers in your mo...

Ceylon Kenilworth OP-1 from Teavana

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

70 / 100 Aroma: 6/10 Flavor: 4/5 Value: 3/5
Feb. 22nd, 2013

This is a nice traditional black tea. It tastes a lot like your standard black tea from a tea bag, but better. This tea is full bodied with medium tannin, a medium malty flavor, and only slightly astringent. This tea is good for a minimum of 2 steeps. This really could be an everyday tea for a lot of people. I find thi...

Monkey Picked Oolong Tea from Teavana

Style: Tie Guan Yin – Region: ?????

83 / 100 Aroma: 9/10 Flavor: 5/5 Value: 2/5

I will first start off by saying that this tea is well over priced at Teavana. I can buy the same quality Ti Kuan Yin elsewhere for around $4.00-$4.50 per ounce. With that being said, this is one of the best Oolong teas out there. I do find though that you really either love this tea, or you hate it. I love it, my wife...

Strawberry Lemonade / Blueberry Bliss Blend from Teavana

Style: Fruit (Herbal) Tea – Region: Blend

70 / 100 Aroma: 6/10 Flavor: 4/5 Value: 4/5
Feb. 21st, 2013

This herbal tea has a lovely fragrance while steeping. It fills the room with a sweet fruity scent that lingers. Once it hits your mouth you are hit with the traditionally "herbaly" taste mixed with tangy strawberry. In the finish you get the "rooibos" taste mixed with lemon and blueberry. The blueberry tastes more lik...

Golden Monkey Black Tea from Teavana

Style: Golden Monkey – Region: Fujian, China

73 / 100 Aroma: 7/10 Flavor: 4/5 Value: 3/5
Feb. 21st, 2013

This is a top level black tea, but it can fool you. If you are looking for a bold, strong, malty black tea then this one is not for you. This tea is smooth and delicate. It is very low in tannin. While there is a pretty strong aroma when brewing it doesn't translate into the finished product.
