Golden Monkey Black Tea from Teavana

Style: Golden Monkey – Region: Fujian, China

80 / 100 Aroma: 9/10 Flavor: 4/5 Value: 3/5
Dec. 20th, 2012

This is a finicky tea. The flavor is very easy to squash if it is brewed too strong. I found that when I used restraint in the amount of leaves vs water, the chocolaty flavor that one clearly detects on the nose before brewing, will come out. This is a wonderful tea when you get it right, but this may take a few trie...

Organic Japanese Sencha from Two Leaves and a Bud

Style: Sencha – Region: Japan

40 / 100 Aroma: 3/10 Flavor: 2/5 Value: 3/5
Dec. 20th, 2012

This is by far the oddest sencha I have tried. It completely lacked the fresh, herbal, almost "oceany" seaweed taste of an authentic sencha. It contained a stale off note that is hard to describe yet ruined the experience completely.

I cannot help wondering if something awful happened to this tea on its way to th...

China Yunnan from Mark T. Wendell

Style: Black Tea – Region: Yunnan, China

90 / 100 Aroma: 9/10 Flavor: 4/5 Value: 5/5
Dec. 20th, 2012

This is a very flavorful black tea from Yunnan China. It is complex and almost peppery, but not in the spicy sense. It is not as sweet as other examples I have tried, but this is not a defect merely a difference. Highly recommend.

Phoenix Mountain Dan Cong Oolong Tea from Teavana

Style: Dancong Oolong – Region: ?????

97 / 100 Aroma: 10/10 Flavor: 5/5 Value: 4/5
Dec. 19th, 2012

This tea is beautiful! Both smoky and fruity (in the best sense of this term). This is one of the teas that woke me up to the possibilities of leaves, hot water, and quiet. I hope it will always be available.

Wuyi Ensemble (Wuyi Oolong) from Adagio Teas

Style: Oolong Tea – Region: Wuyi, Fujian, China

73 / 100 Aroma: 7/10 Flavor: 4/5 Value: 4/5
Dec. 19th, 2012

To me this lacked the complexity that I expect in Wuyi Shan Cha. It was pleasantly herbal with some sweet and mineral notes, but I go to this kind of tea looking for profundity. I felt it was missing here.

Ti Kuan Yin (Oolong Goddess) from Adagio Teas

Style: Tie Guan Yin – Region: Fujian, China

80 / 100 Aroma: 8/10 Flavor: 4/5 Value: 4/5
Dec. 19th, 2012

I was given a sample of this by a friend and I found that it held up quite nicely against other Ti Quan Yins I have tried. I thought the flavor and aroma were both lovely and I would certainly seek this out again.

Indonesian Tea from Mark T. Wendell

Style: Black Tea – Region: West Java, Indonesia

87 / 100 Aroma: 8/10 Flavor: 4/5 Value: 5/5
Dec. 19th, 2012

This is dark and earthy. It's less brisk than Indian or Sri Lankan teas, but not sweet either. As is usually the case with this merchant, the quality for the money is wonderful. I don't want this tea every day, but it is a pleasant change from routine. Good stuff!

Original Blend (Green Label) from Barry's Tea

Style: Irish Breakfast – Region: Blend

70 / 100 Aroma: 7/10 Flavor: 3/5 Value: 4/5
Dec. 19th, 2012

For me this is much less interesting than Barry's Gold Blend. Perhaps because I drink my tea clear, I find this more astringent version to less palatable. The malt is there, but also a bitterness I don't really enjoy.

Cheericup Ceylon from Mark T. Wendell

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

97 / 100 Aroma: 9/10 Flavor: 5/5 Value: 5/5
Dec. 19th, 2012

This Ceylon is full of flavor. It is an excellent value for the money and I could happily drink this daily. In fact, I plan on ordering a pound of the damn stuff next time around. This tea makes me grin!

#143 - Tippy Yunnan from Tealuxe

Style: Black Tea – Region: Yunnan, China

87 / 100 Aroma: 8/10 Flavor: 5/5 Value: 4/5
Dec. 19th, 2012

A nice, sweet, dark Yunnan. This is not at all astringent. To add milk or sugar would be silly. If you drink a lot of black tea, this can be an enjoyable break from the more brisk, south Asian tea styles.

#170 - Oolong Traditional China (China Oolong Restaurant Style) from Tealuxe

Style: Oolong Tea – Region: China

73 / 100 Aroma: 8/10 Flavor: 4/5 Value: 3/5
Dec. 19th, 2012

This is a pleasant Oolong-not dark and roasty as advertised however. It is lightly floral/herby. Sometimes there is what I can only describe as a cannabis note. Nothing to knock one's socks off, but nice for the price. I drink this at work quite a bit, and sometimes blend it with other teas.

Gold Blend from Barry's Tea

90 / 100 Aroma: 8/10 Flavor: 5/5 Value: 5/5
Dec. 19th, 2012

As tea in a tea bag goes, this is very good stuff. The flavor is distinctive and comforting. I think I could easily pick this one out in a blind tasting with other Irish/Brittish brands. A good tea to have on hand.
