I would drink this every morning, it's just so good. Pleasant but nondescript. Smooth tasting, medium body. This tea is not very astringent. I dislike astringent things. It's worth the price. Tastes just as good resteeped.

Rooibos Chai (Formerly Ruby Chai) from Numi Organic Tea

Style: Rooibos Chai / Spiced Rooibos – Region: Blend

Dec. 19th, 2017

This tea smells very warming and spicy, it smells very strongly of nutmeg. The plain tea itself is quite thin bodied and not super great, however, when you add milk and sugar, this tea is delicious and has a good flavor reminding me of the holidays. I generally like Numi teas however this one isn’t my favorite. I wou...

I really like herbal tea, which is why I rated this one pretty high. This herbal tea in particular was really good though, much better than celestial seasonings in my opinion. The flavor is very smooth and not astringent at all and it has a very cinnamon and sweet flavor. It says this tea has no sugar added, but it tas...

Disha Assam Summer Organic Factory Black from TEAORB

Style: Assam – Region: Dibrugarh, Assam, India

83 / 100 Aroma: 6/10 Flavor: 4/5 Value: 3/5
Dec. 9th, 2017

This tea tastes sort of bready and soapy at the same time, but in a good way. It's not too strong and not too astringent, which is good. It's a nice tea to have with bland foods because stronger foods would overpower the flavor of the tea. Overall this was a pretty decent tea, however, there are much cheaper tea that I...

Scottish Breakfast from Murchie's Tea & Coffee Ltd

Style: Scottish Breakfast – Region: Blend

85 / 100 Aroma: 8/10 Flavor: 5/5 Value: 4/5
Oct. 29th, 2017

This tea is very good for a typical black tea. At around 20 cents per cup, it is a pretty decent value. It is very thick bodied and strong and it's a great tea to start my morning off with! It is also really interesting because, although its very similar to an english breakfast tea, it's slightly smokier and has a grea...

English Breakfast from Benner Tea Co

Style: English Breakfast – Region: ?????

30 / 100 Aroma: 3/10 Flavor: 1/5 Value: 2/5
Sep. 11th, 2017

This tea isn't super great, but it's definitely not the worst thing. The price is pretty good, $1.20 for a box of 20 bags. However, there are teas that are the same price but are much better quality.

The flavor was decent for the first couple of sips, it had a sort of floral taste. Quickly though, my mouth began to ...

Not exactly my cup of tea (lol, puns) but for a flavored herbal tea it was pretty decent, based on other ones I've tried. On the plus side it was not very astringent at all, but unfortunately it tasted oddly soap-like and weird to me.

Colombian Black Tea from Simpson & Vail

Style: Black Tea – Region: Colombia

95 / 100 Aroma: 10/10 Flavor: 5/5 Value: 4/5
Aug. 6th, 2017

This tea smells floral and fruity. The taste is light and not very astringent but it has a subtle and pleasant bitterness to it. Even though it's lighter bodied, I felt full after drinking it. It's a very satisfying tea and worth the money. Also, this tea is unusually good when you re-steep it, it still maintains much ...

Jul. 16th, 2017

For such a cheap tea it's really good, it's very aromatic and flavorful. It's very interesting and has a lot of character. The smell is kind of a weird burnt smokey smell which I actually really enjoy, and the taste is consistent with that smell. The taste is very smokey and warm and thick so it's a very comforting tea...
