White Peony from Jasmine Pearl Tea Company

Style: White Peony Tea – Region: China

80 / 100 Aroma: 7/10 Flavor: 5/5 Value: 3/5
Nov. 22nd, 2016

I picked this up at a Whole Foods in Portland and it is an instant favorite!

The aroma is delightful, this tea is why air freshener and candle companies sell fragrances called "White Peony"

This tea has a fabulous light floral flavor with a mild honeysuckle sweetness. I like to give it a nice long steep to draw o...

Turmeric Ginger from Rishi Tea

Style: Herbal Tea – Region: Blend

53 / 100 Aroma: 5/10 Flavor: 3/5 Value: 3/5
Nov. 22nd, 2016

This is my first experience with a Turmeric blend, I was really more interested in the ginger quality, so I have limited context in which to review this tea.

The aroma of the dry leaf is a playful blend of ginger and citrus, which excited me a great deal.

There the excitement ended. The infusion itself was decen...

Lemon Ginseng Green Tea from Lipton Tea

Style: Green Tea with Lemon – Region: ?????

57 / 100 Aroma: 4/10 Flavor: 4/5 Value: 4/5

Overall a pleasant flavor tea, bright for an afternoon pick-me-up. However I will echo the "lemonade" flavor previously mentioned and this is probably from the "natural flavor" in this tea. My opinion is that quality tea, blends, and herbs speak for themselves without need of such flavor enhancers.

Emperor's Puerh - Black Tea from Numi Organic Tea

Style: Pu-erh Tea – Region: Yunnan, China

67 / 100 Aroma: 8/10 Flavor: 4/5 Value: 3/5
Nov. 18th, 2016

I haven't yet tried too many pu-ehrs, but I'm starting to think they are not for me. This one has both a rich aroma and flavor of loam and crab cakes. If you are into that sort of thing, this tea is probably amazing, but not how I prefer my tea to taste. It's like I made a nice earthy tea, but used the same water I had...

Green Ginger from Tazo Tea

Style: Flavored Green Tea – Region: China

57 / 100 Aroma: 5/10 Flavor: 4/5 Value: 3/5
Nov. 17th, 2016

This tea is pretty middle of the road. It is pretty weak unless you really give it a long steep. Even then the green tea is pretty modest in flavor but the punchy ginger comes out with a spicy ginger bite finish that I really enjoy after a meal. I do however try to go with other ginger teas as I try to stick to organic...

Gunpowder Green Tea - Temple of Heaven from Numi Organic Tea

Style: Gunpowder Green Tea – Region: ?????

77 / 100 Aroma: 7/10 Flavor: 4/5 Value: 4/5
Nov. 16th, 2016

This is a really nice green tea. Pretty mellow throughout, but with a nice crisp finish that sets it apart from other types of greens. Nice clean mouthfeel, not much lingering going on. I get a nice quenching feeling I find uncommon with a hot cup of tea.
