Prince Charles Blend Tea Bags from Murchie's Tea & Coffee Ltd

Style: Black Tea – Region: Blend

87 / 100 Aroma: 8/10 Flavor: 5/5 Value: 5/5
Jan. 14th, 2021

Prince Charles isn't among most heavily advertised teas in the large assortment Murchie's carries, but maybe it should be. It was, according to the website, "originally blended in 1981 to commemorate the Royal Wedding of Charles and Diana." Good thing this tea long outlasted that marriage!

The dry bag gave a sharp...

The aroma is mild with a bit of spiciness. The liquor is a very dark brown. Strong flavor, with a smoky after taste that stays on the tongue. A good 'strong' tea.

Decaffeinated Breakfast Tea Bags from Taylors of Harrogate

Style: English Breakfast – Region: Blend

90 / 100 Aroma: 9/10 Flavor: 4/5 Value: 4/5
Jan. 6th, 2021

I find it a bit weird, but I often like the taste of a good decaf better than the taste of the same regularly caffeinated drink. They can have a nice savory mouthfeel without bitterness.

This decaf is solid, especially for a teabag. For those expressly wanting a non-caffeinated bag tea, this is a strong choice!

94 / 100 Aroma: 8/10 Flavor: 5/5 Value: 5/5
Jan. 5th, 2021

This tea was quite different, especially relative to other Chinese teas. I enjoyed it a lot.

The dry leaf of this is long and straight, and has a mild aroma that is unlike most Yunnan teas: mostly fruity, and smelling more like grape than anything else, with some herbaceous, skunky undertones. It is reminiscent of s...

Aroma: Maple, brown sugar, chai spice. This is a nice smelling tea! 8/10

Flavor: This is a very good one. The maple is pronounced but not aggressive, the sweet and spicy plays fantastically. Even more so, the aftertaste is really inviting for another sip. 9/10

Aroma: You really almost smell butter cream icing. It’s a nice note but it’s not what I typically associate with red velvet cake. 7/10

Flavor: This also has a cake batter / icing type note. It’s pretty nice. 7/10

Body: Fairly full. It’s a nice compliment to the cake type drink. 8/10...

Dec. 29th, 2020

This tea is pretty good for a bagged tea. The flavor is strong. Just don’t oversteep it, or it will become bitter. I brewed it for four minutes and that worked well.

Also, I usually prefer my tea plain, but this one was tastier and more satisfying with a bit of milk added. I could definitely see someone using a te...

Dec. 27th, 2020

Wow, I've been reviewing teas for all these years and this is the first tea I've ever tried from Shandong, and I am a fan!

The leaf is tightly curled and has a dusty gray appearance, with small but somewhat thick leaves, and smells very potent: strongly malty with a hint of smoke and dark chocolate. The maltiness is...

Dec. 26th, 2020

Prep: 8oz, sample packet, 212F, 5min

This is my first Irish breakfast tea (at least by the specific tea). This was a free sample in my most recent adagio box.

Aroma: I’ve had a few black teas from Adagio that were quite aggressive in their aromas. This is much more subtle; however, it’s very inviting. Remi...

Half-litre pot at home, made from a sample included in the tea company's Advent Tea Calendar (2020) and consisting of very fine Sencha leaves, some of them even pulverised - not a good sign in a tea from a respectable company selling quality products.

Dec. 25th, 2020

I’m a big fan of white tea and generally haven’t had a lot of success with green tea. I keep trying to evolve my palate and this tea is a step in that direction.

Prep: 175F, 16oz, 2 heaping tsp, 3 minutes
Aroma: Very delicate nose with mild peach. This has that relax in the couch with a movie tea type feel. 7...

When Teavana made this variety, it was one of the first teas that I truly loved. This is meant to be a replacement for their discontinued line, I think.

Dec. 23rd, 2020

This was the first tea I've tried from Yunnan Sourcing to (relatively) disappoint. Perhaps it's just not suited to my tastes, and it's not bad, but I thought it failed to live up to the high expectations I have come to develop for this company.

This tea had both a different appearance and aroma from what I am used t...

Dec. 22nd, 2020

I continue to branch out into black teas from provinces other than Yunnan, sold by Yunnan Sourcing. This was a pleasant surprise: an exceptionally smooth tea, easy to brew and easy to drink, among the sweetest Keemuns I've tried.

The dry leaf is very fine and curly, so much it is shaped more like Bi Luo Chun than li...
