Strawberry Vanilla Little Citizens' Herb Tea from Republic of Tea

Style: Flavored Rooibos – Region: Blend

23 / 100 Aroma: 4/10 Flavor: 1/5 Value: 1/5
Mar. 10th, 2010

I found this tea to be a bit lacking in flavor and value. I paid $10.50 for the tin of 36 bags, a single bag brews up a weak cup.

There is just something about red rose that makes it the best black iced tea. It seems to not ever go flat tasting even after hanging in the fridge a few days. Everyone raves about my iced tea, and I just laugh. It's such a bargain.

I really like this tea, but I find that I have to use 2 tea bags per cup, otherwise the flavors don't really come out, even though the aroma is heavenly. This about doubles the price of the tea however, and for that price you can buy higher quality.

This tea is incredibly resilient, it is hard to over brew! While it's fragrance is fair-good it tastes flat.

The best mango and citrus flavored tea I have had yet. Mango is stronger than the citrus, which is very nice. I like to make sun tea with this particular flavor.

Pomegranate White Tea from Trader Joe's

I am so glad Trader joe's carries a white tea. This is my favorite tea they sell, one bag brews up a pretty strong flavored tea. The pomegranate flavor is very strong, but in a good way.

948 Green & Black Amazon from SpecialTeas

Style: Miscellaneous Blend – Region: Blend

63 / 100 Aroma: 7/10 Flavor: 3/5 Value: 4/5
Mar. 9th, 2010

Strong fruity scent , as the description implys it is heavy on the strawberry and rhubarb scent. The tea is mild in taste, first you taste the tea, then the fruity flavors are noticed. Overall a good tea.

220 Assam Malty FBOP from SpecialTeas

Style: Assam – Region: Assam, India

60 / 100 Aroma: 4/10 Flavor: 4/5 Value: 4/5
Mar. 9th, 2010

My favorite of the low priced Assam from special tea's. Very rich in flavor,though if you are a lover of malty Assam you will find this tea to be lacking a truly strong malty-ness. If you are like me then I suggest Yamamotoyama's orange pekoe.

Overall a good tea.

Style: Green Tea with Lemon – Region: Blend

70 / 100 Aroma: 9/10 Flavor: 3/5 Value: 4/5
Mar. 9th, 2010

Strong in sent, mild in taste. While there are lemon peels in the tea, the dominant flavor comes from the lemon grass. Good sencha is used, not grassy or astringent.

Ginger Peach Decaf from Republic of Tea

I tried this tea at a restaurant, so my review might be off since the tea was stored without a lid :(

I found the tea to have a stronger ginger flavor than peach. I would personally prefer the tea to have a stronger peach presence, but overall it was a very flavorful tea.

Very tasty. The fruit flavor is very strong, as well as the aroma. The sencha tea is a afterthought, that is why I did not give this tea a higher rating.

I have tried many caramel teas, but this one is my favorite. It tastes like real caramel and quality tea. The aroma is heavenly and the price is half of what you would pay at one of the new trendy tea shops. I love this tea!

A perfect Earl grey, strong black tea with a strong bergamot aroma that paints the background of this tea, not overpowers it. The black tea blend stands up to the aroma of bergmot and isn't harsh or astringent.

Style: Irish Breakfast – Region: Blend

80 / 100 Aroma: 8/10 Flavor: 4/5 Value: 5/5
Mar. 8th, 2010

Smooth and silky on the tongue, with a malty aftertaste that Irish breakfasts are known for, but less malty than most. Regarding value, worth twice the price paid Overall a great value, rich flavor, silky smooth mouth feel.
