Picture of Beet Cabbage - Savory Tea

Beet Cabbage - Savory Tea from Numi Organic Tea

Style: Flavored Black Tea – Region: ?????

53 / 100 Aroma: 5/10 Flavor: 3/5 Value: 3/5
Jan. 28th, 2014

I got this as a free sample at the Philly Coffee and Tea Fest 2013. I actually was excited to try this. Never saw it before, but I really like Numi teas and Beet Cabbage-I mean, who would of thought. Said to let steep for 10 mins-which I did. It had a red color to it, but it wasn't as red as you would think being b...

Butterbeer from 52 Teas

53 / 100 Aroma: 5/10 Flavor: 3/5 Value: 3/5
Jan. 14th, 2014

I received this tea as a gift in a swap. The name of the tea, had me sooo excited and I was so grateful to the sender. The aroma of the tea had me wondering, more of a sweet note, that of artificial sweetness. Once I tasted it, it was good and it had a good buttery flavor but that flavor ended with an artificial but...

Cranberry Pear from DAVIDsTEA

Style: Fruit Black Tea – Region: Blend

63 / 100 Aroma: 6/10 Flavor: 4/5 Value: 3/5
Jan. 12th, 2014

This is my first DavidsTea. I received in a tea swap called The 12 Days of Christmas. We had a tea for each day, this was Day#1. The tea itself was fragrant and pleasant to look at. Taste was nice, I only detected the taste of the black tea and pear as well as the artificial flavoring they add and wondered if this ...

Breakfast Blend (Morning Rise) from Numi Organic Tea

Style: Black Tea – Region: Blend

47 / 100 Aroma: 4/10 Flavor: 3/5 Value: 3/5
Jan. 11th, 2014

I am very fond of Numi Teas. I also really enjoy breakfast blends. I have to say that this was Ok. I have being drinking many teas over the last few weeks/holiday season. So, you will see a lot of logs at once, I was keeping notes. With that, I will say that I think that the best breakfast blends seem to come from...

Spiced Apple Cider Rooibos from Teavana

Style: Rooibos Chai / Spiced Rooibos – Region: Blend

50 / 100 Aroma: 5/10 Flavor: 3/5 Value: 2/5
Dec. 13th, 2013

I like Teavana Tea. I just think it tends to be overpriced and I always get someone at the store who tries to sell me something I don't want, even after I tell them that 3 times! When I walk by a store, I can not resist stopping however, and like I said, I do like their tea. I go in and buy this tea, and the salesma...

Golden Chai™ - Spiced Assam Black Tea from Numi Organic Tea

Style: Chai / Spiced Tea – Region: Assam, India

53 / 100 Aroma: 5/10 Flavor: 3/5 Value: 3/5
Dec. 13th, 2013

I have to start off by saying that Numi is probably the first tea bag I ever had that really "wowed" me. I have tried many of their teas and if I see their name, I feel that it is going to be quality. So, that is why I got this Chai. I have been on a Chai kick, with the colder weather. This Chai is good. Not great...

Organic Earl Grey from Mighty Leaf Tea

Style: Earl Grey Tea – Region: Blend

67 / 100 Aroma: 6/10 Flavor: 4/5 Value: 4/5
Dec. 4th, 2013

This Earl Grey tea bag was used to make my London Fog at a local coffee shop. If you are near Elizabethtown, PA, you need to stop in at folklore coffee and company. (I used lower case letters because that is what they use) I had never been and I am so glad I did. One, cool place and two, I learned about a London Fo...

Wild Berry Hibiscus from Tea Forte

Style: Herbal Tea – Region: Blend

47 / 100 Aroma: 5/10 Flavor: 2/5 Value: 3/5
Nov. 26th, 2013

I have been trying to drink more herbal blends and lessen my caffeine intake. This tea was an attempt to do that. I will cut to the chase, it didn’t work. I will say that I did taste berry and citrus notes in this. As for hibiscus, when brewed I could smell it, and I guess now I can say I tasted it because I can’t ...

Organic Japanese Sencha from Two Leaves and a Bud

Style: Sencha – Region: Japan

53 / 100 Aroma: 4/10 Flavor: 4/5 Value: 3/5
Nov. 26th, 2013

I will start by saying right off, I am not a seasoned green tea drinker. I am learning. I found this at a local super market. Price was right, I felt, so I went for it. I will admit, I thought the packaging was 'cute', but the bag inside did rip easily as another reviewer noted, and was hard to keep the tea in. I ...

Heaven Rooibos from Premium Steap

Style: Flavored Rooibos – Region: Blend

67 / 100 Aroma: 5/10 Flavor: 4/5 Value: 4/5
Nov. 25th, 2013

This tea had the rooibos taste with a little chocolate, little mint added. I can't say I could detect the vanilla. It was good, it did resemble a thin mint cookie. It wasn't 'heaven' per se, but I enjoyed it.

Nov. 25th, 2013

I was able to taste Capital Teas at the Philadelphia Coffee and Tea Festival. I had seen them in my tea magazines and have come very close to putting in an order. Since tasting them, I will definitely order off of them-I have many of their teas listed on my Christmas list!
This was not a tea I would typically be dra...

Nov. 25th, 2013

Even though I am not from the UK, I drink my tea as a lot do there-cream and sugar. Since drinking this tea 5 years ago or so, it has won my heart. It is my stable go to basic black tea bag tea. When I want a no frills blend, this is it. It is very comforting to me and I reach for it when I am being nostalgic. Yes...

Pumpkin Spice Chai from Twinings

50 / 100 Aroma: 4/10 Flavor: 3/5 Value: 3/5
Nov. 23rd, 2013

I will start by saying that I usually like Twinings Tea. I mean, how can you not Love Twinings, the Author of 50 Shades seems to, and they have been doing tea for a long time. They definately have my respect, just not my love, for this tea. I don't know what it was, I couldn't put my finger on it, and I drank this 3...

Nov. 22nd, 2013

This was my morning tea of choice this AM. Since I try to get my caffeine in before noon, I really went for it this morning with a strong black tea. My box is almost gone. I enjoyed this tea. Not fancy but reliable. I pretty much knew what I was getting, a tea I can add adequate amounts of sugar and cream to and b...

Awake English Breakfast Filterbag from Tazo Tea

63 / 100 Aroma: 6/10 Flavor: 4/5 Value: 3/5
Nov. 21st, 2013

I tend to favor English Breakfast. Tazo doesn't disappoint me. Nice tea I can count on to 'awake' me just as stated. I steep for 3 mins. I take with cream and a scant of sugar. I brew bags at home, since I can usually buy a whole box for the price Starbucks want to charge me for one cup at the store. So, this is ...

Classic Blend from Tetley Tea

Style: Black Tea – Region: Blend

23 / 100 Aroma: 3/10 Flavor: 1/5 Value: 1/5
Nov. 21st, 2013

I do not like the taste of Tetley. No matter if I steep it for 1, 2, or 3 mins-it doesn't matter. I hate the comparison of steeping grass clippings, since I have never done so, I feel it is not a fair comparison. However, that is all I can think of, to compare the taste to. I used to buy Lipton to have on hand when...

Black Tea from Lipton Tea

Nov. 21st, 2013

I wouldn't be drinking tea today if it wasn't for Lipton, so I feel it is only fair that I pay homage to them. I will make this short and sweet. It isn't the best (they know that) and it isn't the worst (they know that as well). For the value and their longevity, you have to tip your hat. They are doing something r...

I found this wonderful Rooibos at the Joe's I visit. I got one can. Returned a week later and got another for myself and one for a friend. Another two weeks-ALL GONE! I haven't been able to get again-they are not sure it they will be getting more in. This was a big hit they said. Basically it is a blend of rooibo...

Nov. 20th, 2013

I LOVE Trader Joe's! I just started looking at and appreciating their teas, this year. This tea came out with Fall Seasonal Catalog, and it did not last very long. Some stores are out, mine says they may get more in. Ingredients are cinnamon, ginger, hibiscus, natural cin and apple flavor, chamomile, roasted chicor...
