PG Tips Pyramid bags from PG Tips

Style: Black Tea – Region: Blend

53 / 100 Aroma: 5/10 Flavor: 3/5 Value: 3/5

PG Tips is a reasonable British black tea blend. It is one of my "old standbys, " and I particularly like that PG Tips prides itself on ethics.

English Breakfast from Twinings

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

40 / 100 Aroma: 5/10 Flavor: 2/5 Value: 2/5

This is a medium strength blend with a sharp taste that reminds me of tobacco. It definitely likes some milk and sugar in it. However, I try to avoid adding sugar to anything, so I also mostly avoid this tea blend.

This is one of my favorite teas by Twinings, although it is not my favorite Irish breakfast blend. Its worst problem is that it tends to be overpriced.

British Blend - Premium Black Tea from Tetley Tea

Style: Black Tea – Region: Blend

50 / 100 Aroma: 4/10 Flavor: 3/5 Value: 4/5
Mar. 28th, 2015

If you are accustomed to PG Tips, Twinings, or Barry's, then, to you, this tea should not taste bad. If you are used to anything better than the aforementioned, then Tetley British Blend will probably still work in a pinch. You may want to let it steep longer than what you are used to with stronger teas. I let it stee...

Green Tea Super Antioxidant from Yogi Tea

Style: Wellness Tea / Medicinal Tea – Region: Blend

33 / 100 Aroma: 3/10 Flavor: 2/5 Value: 2/5
May. 13th, 2012

It's too earthy. It just does not have a flavor or aroma that stands up to the other varieties of Yogi green teas the way I hoped it would. I would like to be able to speak for its medicinal qualities and say that is the real reason you should buy it, but I cannot report feeling any healthier after drinking this tea fo...

Fusion Green & White Tea from Stash Tea

Style: Green and White Blend – Region: ?????

73 / 100 Aroma: 7/10 Flavor: 4/5 Value: 5/5

This tea is quite a bargain. You would have to spend two bucks more on a box with two fewer tea bags in it in order to find a tastier, smoother tea.

Zen Filterbags from Tazo Tea

Style: Flavored Green Tea – Region: ?????

50 / 100 Aroma: 6/10 Flavor: 3/5 Value: 2/5
May. 12th, 2012

I can think of at least one less expensive flavored green tea that is better Tazo's Zen. Additionally, there are several other common green teas not far above its price that I feel are very superior. So, although I wont say this is a bad tea, I will say it disappointed me somewhat. I'm probably not apt to buy another b...
