Berry Black™ - Raspberry Darjeeling Black Tea from Numi Organic Tea

Style: Fruit Black Tea – Region: Darjeeling, India

70 / 100 Aroma: 7/10 Flavor: 3/5 Value: 4/5
Mar. 25th, 2010

Certainly one of the better bagged teas I've tried and one I really enjoyed.

The fruit taste can get a little strong if the tea is steeped more than about 4 minutes, i've found that 3-4 minutes with hotter water is just about perfect.

Nice aroma, and well balanced, the fruit does not overpower the darjeeling fl...

This quickly became one of my favorite teas.

This tea has a very delicate yet distinct flavor, milder than a dragonwell, but somewhat similar.

The delicateness of this tea make it a perfect afternoon or evening sip and I find they inspire relaxation.

One of the more unusual looking leaves when dry, simil...

I would try this one with caution, and start by steeping it for a very short time to avoid it becom...

China Green Tips Full Leaf from Tazo Tea

Style: Green Tea – Region: Zhejiang, China

77 / 100 Aroma: 7/10 Flavor: 4/5 Value: 5/5

While not a fan of the bagged teas in general, this one is not too bad. What makes it even better is that now Starbucks has converted their tea inventory into whole leaf varieties of the same tea.

Dragon Well pre-Qing Ming First Grade from Teas Etc

Style: Dragon Well (Long Jing) – Region: Zhejiang, China

83 / 100 Aroma: 8/10 Flavor: 5/5 Value: 4/5
Feb. 26th, 2010

As a fan of pre-rain Dragon Well I am always anxious to find one with a good flavor for a reasonable price. This one is a great balance of flavor and aroma for a very good price considering it is a pre-Qing Ming tea.
I keep this one on hand throughout the year and look forward to the new harvest.
