Picture of First Grade Gunpowder Green

First Grade Gunpowder Green from Upton Tea Imports

Style: Gunpowder Green Tea – Region: China

77 / 100 Aroma: 5/10 Flavor: 5/5 Value: 5/5
Apr. 16th, 2014

A good strong gunpowder, and a good value from Upton, as you can buy in bulk. No reason to buy a more expensive grade IMO.

Sencha (Sen-cha), Loose-leaf from Yamamotoyama

Style: Sencha – Region: Japan

77 / 100 Aroma: 5/10 Flavor: 5/5 Value: 5/5

My coarse palette can fortunately enjoy only strong green tea, and these tend to be the cheap ones. It's a good thing I can get a 7 oz bag of this stuff online for $3.50, since I drink a big thermos of it everyday.

I boil water in a teapot, then turn off the heat and toss the leaves right in, and let them steep for...

Black Tea from Ten Ren Tea

Style: Black Tea – Region: ?????

70 / 100 Aroma: 5/10 Flavor: 5/5 Value: 2/5
Apr. 16th, 2014

This bagged tea is not a great value, at $3.50 for about an ounce of actual tea. However, it's been my go-to tea for many years. Mild, Sweet and smoky flavor, but what I really like is that it doesn't upset my tea-sensitive stomach.

Vanilla from Adagio Teas

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

37 / 100 Aroma: 4/10 Flavor: 2/5 Value: 2/5
Dec. 10th, 2011

Adagio has an awesome website and their teas are competitively priced. Alas, their flavored teas just don't float my boat. "Chemically" is how I'd describe both the vanilla and the other flavors I've tried. They're a popular brand, so maybe it's just me.

Cinnamon StickĀ® Black Tea from Bigelow Tea

Style: Chai / Spiced Tea – Region: ?????

80 / 100 Aroma: 8/10 Flavor: 4/5 Value: 4/5
Dec. 10th, 2011

I don't like many mass produced teas, and Bigelow's over packaging is a major turn off, but I must say I do find myself drinking this quite a bit. Cinnamon-y but not too strong, I take it with whole milk and sugar.

PG Tips Pyramid bags from PG Tips

Style: Black Tea – Region: Blend

80 / 100 Aroma: 7/10 Flavor: 4/5 Value: 5/5
Dec. 10th, 2011

Your standard, full flavored, "meaty" morning tea. A fine value at $.10/bag, and a cut above the bagged saw dust in your office break room.

Ginger Peach from Republic of Tea

Style: Flavored Black Tea – Region: ?????

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

You can find this in a bag or loose leaf in the bulk tea section of your favorite natural foods store (eg Rainbow Grocery in SF) or on the RoT website. I prefer the more environmentally friendly and IMO better tasting loose leaf.

A smooth, very full flavored tea with prominent but balanced ginger and peach flavor...
