Picture of Yorkshire Gold

Yorkshire Gold from Yorkshire Tea

Style: Black Tea – Region: Blend

87 / 100 Aroma: 9/10 Flavor: 5/5 Value: 4/5
Feb. 20th, 2012

My wife tells me that this tea reminds her of the best of the teas from her father's shop in Canada. An elegant yet rich afternoon tea; my choice when friends drop in or after dinner. Splash of milk is all this beauty needs. Way above an average tea.

Yorkshire Tea Traditional from Yorkshire Tea

Style: Black Tea – Region: Blend

80 / 100 Aroma: 8/10 Flavor: 5/5 Value: 4/5
Feb. 20th, 2012

This was my go to afternoon tea until I tasted the Yorkshire Gold. Lovely, intriguing aromas and rich body. Great with a splash of milk. N.B.: This tea MUST be kept in an airtight container as it fades away very quickly when left in the box.

Picture of Pure Assam Tea Bags

Pure Assam Tea Bags from Taylors of Harrogate

Style: Assam – Region: Assam, India

60 / 100 Aroma: 5/10 Flavor: 3/5 Value: 3/5
Feb. 20th, 2012

UPDATE: Good Assam with fine aroma, full bodied with that slight weakness in mid-palate characteristic of pure Assams, smoky finish. One negative: it seems to have a short shelf life as loose tea. As I write this, it is harvest time in Assam, and this tea (fresh from the vendor) seems to be faded or of lesser quality.

Style: Earl Grey Tea – Region: Blend

70 / 100 Aroma: 7/10 Flavor: 3/5 Value: 3/5
Feb. 20th, 2012

Simply put, this is the finest Earl Grey I've yet to try. Perfect balance of bergamot with the rich tea used. Fine aroma, flavor and finish.

Picture of Irish Breakfast

Irish Breakfast from Bewley's Coffee and Tea Company

Style: Irish Breakfast – Region: Blend

0 / 100 Aroma: 4/10 Flavor: 2/5 Value: 2/5
Feb. 20th, 2012

A few years ago, this was a very good tea. Just tried the current release. Bleh! An overly herbacious black tea overwhelms the rest of the cup.

Picture of Gold Blend

Gold Blend from Barry's Tea

Style: Black Tea – Region: Blend

63 / 100 Aroma: 6/10 Flavor: 4/5 Value: 2/5
Jun. 2nd, 2011

After having been underwhelmed by the Barry's Irish Breakfast, I tried the Barry's Gold hoping for more. By using 3 bags for a 12 oz. cup and steeping 5 to 7 minutes, this is a fairly good Irish Breakfast tea. The malty aromas (with the somewhat offsetting peachy notes), rich full body, strength without overwhelming as...

Irish Breakfast from Trader Joe's

Style: Irish Breakfast – Region: Assam, India

50 / 100 Aroma: 5/10 Flavor: 2/5 Value: 4/5
Jun. 2nd, 2011

TJ's version of Irish Breakfast tastes like primarily Kenyan OP with a bit of Assam added for depth and body. There is not much of the malty character I look for in an Irish Breakfast tea. I have some loose leaf single estate Kenyan OP's which taste and smell very similar and make great iced tea. I think iced tea is wh...

Picture of 803 Fine Irish Breakfast Blend

803 Fine Irish Breakfast Blend from SpecialTeas

Style: Irish Breakfast – Region: Blend

97 / 100 Aroma: 9/10 Flavor: 5/5 Value: 5/5
Feb. 25th, 2010

This is my everyday breakfast tea. Deeper and darker colored than an English breakfast, this very full-bodied black tea (with a splash of milk) is one of the most satisfying teas I've ever had. Not elegant, but full throttle flavors and finish. I buy it 2# at a time for $32. UPDATE: Special Teas has closed its doors. O...

Picture of Earl Grey

Earl Grey from Twinings

Style: Earl Grey Tea – Region: ?????

30 / 100 Aroma: 3/10 Flavor: 1/5 Value: 1/5
Dec. 5th, 2009

Fair nose dominated by the bergamot. Made from the bag, the steeped tea has no truly distinctive flavors. My guess is that by the time it made it through the distribution chain, all the life had oxidized out of this tea.

675 Sencha Extra Fine from SpecialTeas

Style: Sencha – Region: Japan

87 / 100 Aroma: 8/10 Flavor: 4/5 Value: 5/5
Dec. 5th, 2009

Wonderfully full and rich grassy aromas. Medium-full body mouth feel and a long, pleasantly smooth finish
