Picture of My Morning Mate Tea

My Morning Mate Tea from Teavana

Style: Flavored Yerba Maté – Region: Blend

63 / 100 Aroma: 7/10 Flavor: 4/5 Value: 3/5
Jul. 26th, 2014

My Morning Maté tastes less like the traditional cup of tea and more like…well, coffee, without the bitterness! The blend contains Mate tea, Rooibos tea, black tea, cocoa kernels, carob bits, chocolate chips, orange peels, almonds, cactus blossoms, coriander, pistachio nuts, cracknel bits, red pepper, cornflowers, ...

Six Summits Oolong® Tea from Teavana

Style: Flavored Oolong – Region: ?????

60 / 100 Aroma: 5/10 Flavor: 4/5 Value: 3/5
Jul. 26th, 2014

I used to hate oolong tea. I couldn't tell you the brands I tried in the past, but every cup of oolong I sipped tasted like mud. And, I know most tea-savvy people feel disdain toward Teavana, but I have to say their Six Summits Oolong opened my mind to oolong. That I could enjoy it.

The scent of the dried tea is ple...

Gen Mai Cha from Two Leaves and a Bud

Style: Genmaicha – Region: China

63 / 100 Aroma: 6/10 Flavor: 4/5 Value: 2/5
Jun. 5th, 2012

I was skeptical of the tea because the scent reminded me of Honey Smack cereal (minus most of the sweetness), and I was never too fond of Honey Smacks.

This tea grew on me as is cooled down. When the tea was still hot, all I tasted was the puffed rice, and I couldn’t help but feel like I was drinking watery porri...

Tropical Goji Green from Two Leaves and a Bud

Style: Fruit Green Tea – Region: Blend

63 / 100 Aroma: 6/10 Flavor: 4/5 Value: 2/5
Jun. 5th, 2012

The scent of this tea was so scrummy. It was sweet and fruity, and I was excited to get brewing right away. And let me tell you, the taste of Tropical Goji Green was just as delicious as its smell.

“Flavoring” can be a little tricky because it can overpower the tea, but in this tea it was a nice balance. The fl...

Picture of Ooooh Darjeeling

Ooooh Darjeeling from Adagio Teas

Style: Darjeeling Oolong – Region: Darjeeling, India

70 / 100 Aroma: 6/10 Flavor: 4/5 Value: 4/5
Apr. 25th, 2012

The scent of the leaves is delicate to me– slightly sweet and earthy, but I didn’t really taste either of these once brewed. Ooooh Darjeeling is unlike any oolong tea I’ve had. It doesn’t have that earthy aroma like most oolong teas I have tried. Instead, it tasted more like a black tea but not as strong and wi...

Picture of Chestnut Tea

Chestnut Tea from Adagio Teas

Style: Flavored Black Tea – Region: Blend

80 / 100 Aroma: 8/10 Flavor: 4/5 Value: 4/5
Jan. 23rd, 2012

This tea had the most buttery and sugary and nutty aroma. These were the things that popped into my head: burnt sugar. Creme Brule. Multi-grain pancakes (smothered in butter and warm syrup, of course). Notice how none of those say “chestnut”? That's because I've never had a chestnut, so I can't say whether or not t...
