Picture of Kenyan Black Tea - Loose Tea

Kenyan Black Tea - Loose Tea from Ajiri Tea

Style: Black Tea – Region: Kisii, Kenya

77 / 100 Aroma: 6/10 Flavor: 4/5 Value: 5/5
Mar. 30th, 2011

This is a tasty but basic black tea, with a great cause. The leaves are tiny, dark, and pellet-like. Not what I was expecting, but I didn't want to judge on just the leaf appearance alone. The leaves have a lovely sweet cocoa scent.

after steeping, the liquor tastes of whole wheat toast, and dark chocolate. It is a...

English Breakfast from Golden Moon Tea

Style: English Breakfast – Region: Blend

70 / 100 Aroma: 7/10 Flavor: 3/5 Value: 4/5
Jan. 31st, 2011

It smells very smokey right out of the package. Must have quite a bit of Keemun. This tea is perfect for today- I have been alone with my small kids for a few days, and I’m exhausted and also feel a cold coming on. This tea is perfect to wake me up, and also comfort. While trying to watch the kids and steep tea, I ov...

Superior Bai Lin Gong Fu Black Tea from Canton Tea Co

Style: Black Tea – Region: Fujian, China

80 / 100 Aroma: 8/10 Flavor: 4/5 Value: 4/5
Jan. 31st, 2011

The leaves are gorgeous! the dry leaf smell reminds me of very strong dried fruits, such as dates and raisins. maybe a little goji berry, too. I also get a whiff of sweet tobacco, like what my father used to smoke in his pipe when I was a girl. The taste is very interesting, slightly caramel-y, and i’m also getting t...

Darjeeling Margaret's Hope Autumnal from TeaGschwendner

Style: Darjeeling Autumnal Flush – Region: Darjeeling, India

83 / 100 Aroma: 9/10 Flavor: 4/5 Value: 4/5
Jan. 14th, 2011

The liquor has a beautiful floral aroma with that sweet darjeeling muscatel scent. In taste, it is not as delicate as a first flush. It is bold, but without much of the floral notes that 2nd flushes usually have. It does have the soft mouthfeel described by the vendor, but I did not detect any woody notes. The tea is a...

Darjeeling Autumnal from SerendipiTea

Style: Darjeeling Autumnal Flush – Region: Darjeeling, India

67 / 100 Aroma: 7/10 Flavor: 3/5 Value: 3/5
Jan. 11th, 2011

The tea produces a nice golden cup. It has a strong astringent taste, and of course the muscatel that I've grown to love from Darjeelings. While it has the distinctive Darjeeling aroma, it does not have any delicate floral notes. the leaves are nice and large, and you don't need much to get a dark full bodied cup. The ...

Picture of Assam

Assam from Two Leaves and a Bud

Style: Assam – Region: Assam, India

70 / 100 Aroma: 7/10 Flavor: 3/5 Value: 4/5
Jan. 7th, 2011

This is a very mild Assam. It is super smooth and has no bitterness whatsoever. To me it tastes like malty, liquid honey. It is super sweet, thick, and smooth. It has a sweet smell, similar to a raisin or apricot, with a slight tobacco aroma. When I taste it however, the only flavors that come through for me are the...

PG Tips Pyramid bags from PG Tips

Style: Black Tea – Region: Blend

53 / 100 Aroma: 4/10 Flavor: 3/5 Value: 4/5
Jan. 6th, 2011

I'm a fan of PG tips for mornings when I just want a quick cup of strong tea to wake me up. It has a strong, malty aroma, that translates through to the taste as well. it has a slightly bitter flavor, similar to english breakfast. There is a slight frutiness as well. a very basic morning tea.

Yorkshire Gold from Yorkshire Tea

Style: Black Tea – Region: Blend

60 / 100 Aroma: 6/10 Flavor: 3/5 Value: 3/5
Jan. 4th, 2011

Brewing for about 4 minutes yields a nice rich golden color and a malty scent. Nothing fancy about the taste, but it's just what I look for in a quick breakfast (or early afternoon) tea- slightly bitter, malty, with a faint hint of fruit on top. This is of course a tea that would do well with a drop of milk and some su...

White Peony from Rishi Tea

Style: White Peony Tea – Region: Zhenghe, Fujian, China

77 / 100 Aroma: 7/10 Flavor: 4/5 Value: 4/5
Jan. 4th, 2011

I'll start by saying I'm new to white teas, so I do not know exactly what a typical white tastes like. But the large leaves have a beautiful honey aroma that also came through after steeping. I could smell another slightly woody/nutty flavor, but couldn't identify it until I read the package "Pure White Tea with acc...

Darjeeling from Choice Organic Teas

Style: Darjeeling Black Tea – Region: Darjeeling, India

43 / 100 Aroma: 4/10 Flavor: 2/5 Value: 3/5
Jan. 4th, 2011

Each tea bag is a 'pyrmaid infuser'. It is a good way to let the tea breathe a little bit, and spread out. The leaves have a lovely sweet floral scent. I steeped the tea for the 4 minutes recommended on the box. The tea has a faint floral fragrance, along with a hint of that Darjeeling muscatel. These aromas translate...

Pure from Zealong

Style: Oolong Tea – Region: New Zealand

90 / 100 Aroma: 9/10 Flavor: 5/5 Value: 4/5
Jan. 4th, 2011

Out of the package the tea has a lovely light floral scent. Not very strong, but immensely pleasing. I steeped the tea with freshly boiled (but not boiling) water. This resulted in a beautiful bright yellow/green liquid that had a light sweet smell. The taste is best described as light, yet full of flavor at the sam...

Twig Tea from Choice Organic Teas

Style: Kukicha – Region: Japan

83 / 100 Aroma: 8/10 Flavor: 4/5 Value: 5/5
Jan. 4th, 2011

This tea is pleasing. It has a sweet aroma with a smooth, toasty and nutty flavor. similar to Hojicha but without any green vegetal taste. It is very soothing. It also is reminding me of something from my childhood, but I can’t put my finger on what it is. I think it’s a tea we used to have at a Chinese restaurant ...
