Picture of Green Tea with Coconut & Ginger

Green Tea with Coconut & Ginger from Harney and Sons

Style: Flavored Green Tea – Region: Blend

70 / 100 Aroma: 8/10 Flavor: 3/5 Value: 4/5
May. 20th, 2011

Found this green tea to be unfortunately bitter... definitely have to be careful with how long you leave the teabag in. That said it has a lovely aroma, and a strong flavor. Overall pleasant.

Royal Wedding Tea from Harney and Sons

Style: Flavored White Tea – Region: Blend

70 / 100 Aroma: 10/10 Flavor: 2/5 Value: 3/5
May. 20th, 2011

Dopey name aside, this tea sounded fantastic and I couldn't resist ordering it. It smells fantastic, the almond and vanilla are really strong and wonderful. But unfortunately I found it to be a bit weak taste-wise, as with most artificially flavored white teas... perhaps best served with milk and sugar to bring it out....

Dragon Pearl Jasmine from Harney and Sons

Style: Jasmine Pearls – Region: Fujian, China

90 / 100 Aroma: 10/10 Flavor: 4/5 Value: 4/5
May. 1st, 2011

I was pleasantly surprised by this Jasmine. Typically I find that Jasmine teas smell fantastic but brew super bitter and tasteless. Dragon Pearl Jasmine, on the other hand, was both aromatic and flavorful without being overpowering. A solid choice for Jasmine.

Decaf Lotus Blossom Green (Lotus) from Tazo Tea

Style: Flavored Green Tea – Region: ?????

57 / 100 Aroma: 3/10 Flavor: 5/5 Value: 4/5
Dec. 4th, 2010

It's hard to find a good decaf Green Tea, and Tazo's Lotus is a surprisingly satisfactory choice. Sweet, mellow green tea that manages to pull off a sort of pleasant lemon-y taste without being sharp.
Not exciting by any means but hits the spot

Green Tea - Classic from Bigelow Tea

Style: Green Tea – Region: ?????

53 / 100 Aroma: 4/10 Flavor: 3/5 Value: 5/5
Dec. 3rd, 2010

No-frills, light green tea you normally find in office buildings and drink because there's nothing else around. Strangely, it brews a sort of redish color... makes me wonder. All in all, a forgettable, satisfactory flavor– amazingly, not terribly bitter. I'm sure however, if you leave the teabag in too long it'll be ...

Tokio from Lupicia

Style: Flavored Green Tea – Region: ?????

63 / 100 Aroma: 9/10 Flavor: 2/5 Value: 3/5
Oct. 20th, 2010

Tokio is a frustrating tea because it has this really fantastic, delicate fruity aroma, but the actual flavor is kind of heavy handed... all around "berry" flavor that way over powers the green tea.
I'm not a fan of berry/fruit tea in general so I'm definitely biased. However, I would recommend it to any fruit tea lov...

Lapsang Souchong - Smoky Tarry from Numi Organic Tea

Style: Lapsang Souchong – Region: Wuyi, Fujian, China

60 / 100 Aroma: 6/10 Flavor: 2/5 Value: 5/5
Oct. 13th, 2010

I always get excited when I see brands carry Lapsang Souchong, mostly because I can't imagine their consumer base for it is very large.

Numi's always tends to be pretty satisfying if not a bit thin and their Smoky Tarry blend is no exception. They really play up the smokey-ness in the aroma but then you take a sip ...

Bangkok from Harney and Sons

Oct. 13th, 2010

I love me a good coconut flavored beverage, from coconut coffee to piña coladas, and I couldn't resist trying this blend when I heard about it. And yay, it was great!

Bangkok blend is great because all of the flavors really compliment each other...I'm not even a fan of lemongrass or ginger but in this tea it all c...

Sencha "Matsuri" from Lupicia

Style: Sencha – Region: Japan

93 / 100 Aroma: 8/10 Flavor: 5/5 Value: 5/5
Sep. 29th, 2010

This is my favorite green tea!!! A wonderfully mellow green tea that just always hits the spot and doesn't get bitter! Sencha Matsuri has a fantastic grassy/earthy smell (very "green"), it also brews to a wonderful green color, around the same shade as this website! As for the taste, it's a very classic green tea, but ...

Sakurambo (Cherry) from Lupicia

Style: Fruit Black Tea – Region: Blend

77 / 100 Aroma: 8/10 Flavor: 4/5 Value: 4/5
Sep. 29th, 2010

This tea has a fantastic aroma! A truly lovely sweet (but not sickly sweet!) cherry smell. And unlike most fruit teas, which I find tend to taste thin and bitter, the flavor actually holds up! It's pretty over powering actually, but in a good way. If you're a fan of fruit teas, definitely take the time to check this on...

French Vanilla Black Tea from Bigelow Tea

Sep. 20th, 2010

Bigelow teas always sound fantastic in theory but taste like hot water... they just never live up to their potential (which I guess, to be fair, is not really a surprise considering Bigelow is the type of tea you tend to drink because the coffee is instant and the other alternative in the wicker basket is some kind of ...

PG Tips Pyramid bags from PG Tips

Style: Black Tea – Region: Blend

47 / 100 Aroma: 2/10 Flavor: 3/5 Value: 4/5
Sep. 18th, 2010

People just adore PG Tips, and I know when I was living in England it was most of my British friends go-to brand. I, however, have found it to be a little difficult to brew- you've got to time the steeping perfectly or it ends up a bit bitter and dry tasting. I have better luck with Tetley's and Barry's which seemingly...

Sep. 18th, 2010

I sort of consider ITO EN to be the most acceptable of the lower-end tea brands...it's certainly not a crappy brand or anything but I just mean you can find it in any corner store nowadays (premade or boxed!) and while it's not exciting, it hits the spot. I usually love Genmaicha but theirs tends to have a bitter after...

Decaf Muscat from Lupicia

Sep. 18th, 2010

Muscat wine flavored tea... very strange yet intriguing! A fantastic smelling tea, however the flavor itself is a little lacking- not bad by any means but I found the novelty sort of wears off half way through the cup. I got this as a tea sample when purchasing other teas from Lupicia and while I enjoyed the experience...

I love Lapsang Souchong and Lupicia don't do it any harm! A wonderful smokey aroma and rich flavor without any sour aftertaste. Really satisfying overall, and good with milk too!

I'm giving this tea such a high marks because I am a true believer in its powers!! Echinacea Plus is my number one go-to tea for when I feel like I'm coming down with something, it always makes me feel better. It has a sweet flavor that only gets sweeter as you brew it. Definitely my favorite echinacea tea.

OK, it's been a long time since I've had this tea but I remember it being really disappointing and bitter. Foojoy strikes me as the cheapo brand of chinese teas.. hit or miss.

There is just something about this tea I don't like! Overly citrus flavor and not satisfying enough. Only feels worth it if you keep telling yourself it's good for you while drinking it.

It's fine- not a bad purchase... simply not as smooth or enjoyable as its Traditional Medicinals counterpart.
