Picture of Decaf White Tea

Decaf White Tea from Celestial Seasonings

Style: White Tea – Region: ?????

47 / 100 Aroma: 4/10 Flavor: 2/5 Value: 4/5
Nov. 2nd, 2011

I got this at Trader Joe's last month. It's relatively weak so you'll need two bags in an 8-ounce cup and steep it for four-to-five minutes. Tastes a bit metallic but has a post-infusion aroma that is very pleasant. This tea is nothing special so I use it for blending. Good price, though!

Black Pearl Tea from Lipton Tea

Style: Ceylon Black Tea – Region: Sri Lanka / Ceylon

37 / 100 Aroma: 3/10 Flavor: 2/5 Value: 3/5

Taking garbage out of a plastic can and putting it into a golden can doesn't increase the value of the garbage. Lipton's attempt at polishing trash isn't fooling anyone.

Black Tea from Lipton Tea

Style: Black Tea – Region: ?????

I'd rather drink Oprah's bathwater filtered through a dirty gym sock than Lipton black tea. In the Navy, this is all we had. But during port visits, I visited every shop I could in order to find some drinkable black. Sometimes I won, sometimes I lost. Sometimes I drank coffee instead.

Honey Green Tea from Lipton Tea

Style: Flavored Green Tea – Region: Blend

27 / 100 Aroma: 3/10 Flavor: 1/5 Value: 2/5
Nov. 1st, 2011

I didn't buy it (thank goodness) but I tried a bag at a friend's house. This infusion left a nasty, bitter taste on the back of my tongue like I licked my own underarm. The failure here is the attempt at making the honey come forth during the infusion. It doesn't work. Use it for compost.

English Breakfast from Bromley Tea

Style: English Breakfast – Region: Blend

53 / 100 Aroma: 5/10 Flavor: 3/5 Value: 3/5
Nov. 1st, 2011

Bought a box of this from Smart & Final about three years ago. At that point, ANYTHING was better than Lipton so even Bromley looked exotic to me. Not all bad, but very generic. Took two bags to get a good 8-ounce cuppa. Kind of a rustic, tannic mid-palette that is strange but appealing.

British Blend - Premium Black Tea - Decaffeinated from Tetley Tea

Style: Black Tea – Region: Blend

70 / 100 Aroma: 6/10 Flavor: 4/5 Value: 4/5
Oct. 29th, 2011

This is my bedtime tea. Every single night without fail. It's become such a routine for me that trying any other tea would likely interrupt my sleep patterns! The decaff version of the British Blend is less bitter than its big brother, allowing me to infuse it with a dash of honey to taste.

British Blend - Premium Black Tea from Tetley Tea

Style: Black Tea – Region: Blend

70 / 100 Aroma: 7/10 Flavor: 3/5 Value: 4/5
Oct. 29th, 2011

When it comes to basic black tea, Tetley British Blend is the base of most of my blending. It's also the one tea that I drink every single night before bedtime (decaff without milk). Lovely aroma, moderately bitter. I spice it with a touch of honey sometimes. Great value as well.

Chinese Oolong from Bigelow Tea

Style: Oolong Tea – Region: China

60 / 100 Aroma: 7/10 Flavor: 3/5 Value: 2/5
Oct. 28th, 2011

Not my favourite Oolong brand, but it's always fresh and has a buttery flavour which is very appealing to me. The problem is that if you over-steep it, it tastes like a mouthful of dirty grass mingled with an odour of cat pee.

Constant Comment Decaffeinated from Bigelow Tea

Style: Flavored Black Tea – Region: Blend

87 / 100 Aroma: 9/10 Flavor: 5/5 Value: 3/5
Oct. 28th, 2011

This is my daily go-to tea. I probably drink 3-5 bags a day. I even use it to blend with other teas. I suggest a Bigelow or Prince of Peace Oolong, a Tetley British Blend pouch along with a Constant Comment in a 10-ounce mug steeped to about five minutes (but remove the Oolong bag after two minutes or it will dominate ...
