Genmaicha from Simple Loose Leaf

Style: Genmaicha – Region: Blend

55 / 100 Aroma: 6/10 Flavor: 1/5 Value: 5/5
Nov. 15th, 2017

As always, the value for these teas is wonderful. This was my first time trying genmaicha, and I really did not care for it.

This loose leaf tea is made from corn and rice (essentially). You can really smell the rice, but with this combo the flavor is very bland. It tastes like you are drinking rice crispies with a ...

Nov. 14th, 2017

I cannot get ENOUGH of this fantastic tea. It has a strong smell of lavender which really overpowers any other taste in the tea, but it's not so strong that you can't stand it; I could still taste a tiny bit of the regular black tea earl gray flavor. The lavender is smooth, and it's extremely calming. After drinking th...

Nov. 8th, 2017

Three times since 2003, I have marveled at the smell of the loose-leaf black currant tea samples in Murchie's Victoria store. Zero times I've come back with any. Don't ask; I don't know why. Guess it just fell out of the line behind other teas that ended up stuffing our luggage.

Rectifying that negligence has bee...

Nov. 3rd, 2017

This was among the least-appealing chai teas I've had so far—decent-tasting with some effort, but also, having an important turn-off and separate weakness that preclude a better rating.

The dry-bag and poured cup smelled dutifully spicy, but also somewhat urinary. That caught me off guard, and probably isn't the ...

Oct. 30th, 2017

This was my first experience with an Earl Grey cream, and I had a hard time discerning the various blended flavors besides bergamot. For example, the vanilla doesn't jump out at you; instead it turns the traditional Earl Grey taste toward something a bit more toasty or woody. I had worried that it might be cloying, b...

Good blend and aroma. Achieves a delicate balance between tea taste and bergamot although bergamot slightly strong so if you want to taste the underlying tea blend might be difficult.

Bought a tin last time I was in Paris from their store. They have a lot of earl grey teas which made me a little skeptical on how "specialised" they could be with all these blends, but I still decided to buy a tin.

It has a nice aroma that sticks, but the tea itself I would say is average. Not sure which blend they...

What can I say? I am not usually a fan of green tea, because I don't like its "bitter" taste. But this one converted me. The trick is that is is flavoured with bergamot oil (usually found in Earl Grey Teas) and dried pieces of Seville oranges. The result is a truly amazing flavour that smooths (without masking) the tra...

Oct. 14th, 2017

Toasted rice is a substance I enjoy in some contexts (in a breakfast-cereal blend, a topping on ice cream, or embedded in fudge and soft-chocolate candy), but I had no idea what to make of the combination of it with tea. Now I do...not a big fan.

The poured scent was practically nonexistent, as the tea's color ch...

Oct. 5th, 2017

This was one of the atypical flavored teas I've had with a scent (both dry-bag and in-cup) noticeably bigger than the taste. I'm having trouble rating this tea because it depends on what you're seeking. Aroma? Strong, fruity, potent, almost mouth-watering. Looks and taste? The base tea is very rich and flavorful, ...

As of this writing, the Cracker Barrel restaurant chain has started offering this tea as their mainstay Earl Grey for service, without telling the customer up front that it is decaffeinated. My wife ordered hot tea, expecting the usual (if tolerable) Lipton rubbish, and got this rubbish instead.

This is a profoundly weird drink, not only because its effluent of rose petals and white tea color-morphs like a chameleon from steel gray to gray-green to brown while steeping.

Sep. 25th, 2017

This is my favorite decaf tea. It tastes a lot like the regular version to me, since the main thing that characterizes this tea is the bergamot flavor - strong but not overpowering, and blends well with the tea. I always brew it for a minute or two longer than the regular, about 6 minutes, and at this strength I can ba...

Sep. 25th, 2017

Bigelow's peach-flavored green tea pleasantly surprised me. I had rated their "Perfect Peach" herbal blend slightly lower, primarily because of the artificial flavoring that partly tastes that way.

The quality of the green tea seems good, and brews up a rich, deep amber in-cup. Some finely powdered sediment even fe...

For some reason, I've had a hard time assigning high values to teas lately, being on a remarkable run of sampling products hovering within +/- 20 percentage points of mediocrity. Not anymore! This one's a clear winner, folks.

While not the strongest chai I've had, it's more than potent enough to offset straight ...

Sep. 24th, 2017

My bag of Numi's Jasmine Green came in an assortment box that was priced unusually high (almost 6 bucks at Wal Mart!). The box only contains 16 bags, which leaves the consumer feeling rather taken advantage of, especially at such a cost. Nevertheless, it's a fair and true counterargument if you holler at me, "Look, b...

Mellow and smooth, but too weak for my taste, this tea will appeal much more to those who enjoy straight, unadulterated spearmint as a tea flavoring. If not for the caffeine, this would make a relaxing bedtime blend. Spearmint is the overwhelmingly dominant flavor and smell, with hardly a hint of the green tea whose ...

This is a wonderful tea. Both the dry leaf and the brewed tea smell amazing. The coconut really comes out. The balance of sweetness with the black tea flavor is very smooth. It'd be possible to add sugar or honey, but it's plenty sweet enough without it. There seems to be some sort of sweet spice in the aroma, but that...

The hint of banana flavor really makes this tea. I love it. It's great for when I'm craving something a bit fruity and a little sweet but distinctly caffeinated. The flavors blend very well, and the aroma is comforting.

The tea itself is solid quality loose leaf. I bought this tea (and a couple others) at a conventi...

The dry teabag smells mostly of cinnamon. There's a hint of citrus, but not near what I was expecting from the name.

Adding the hot water releases a distinct and pleasant lemon scent, but cinnamon is still the dominant aroma.

The taste is yet different. It definitely tastes of lemon oil or peel and is much strong...

This is a sweet floral tea with a longer than average steeping time - but it is worth the wait. A little overpriced as you are paying Teavana's marketing department - but I like it - I can enjoy this equally hot or iced and I don;t sweeten it. The aroma is just wonderful - even better than the taste (to me).

After having a better-quality loose leaf jasmine tea I decided to try this again. Now, it's possible that the aroma and flavour have been... affected by sitting forgotten in the back of a cupboard for over a year.

The tea sachets don't smell like jasmine (anymore), but the brewed tea does, kind of. But more like bub...

I actually ordered the slightly more expensive and higher quality Jasmijn Mao Jian instead of this one. I'm going to give De Theefabriek the benefit of doubt and put it down to a mistake. Given how many samples I ordered, any small mistakes like this are understandable.

This is a new tea that Het Gouden Randje has just added to its inventory. I drank a cup of it in the tea shop, and I did my best to taste it properly. It's always difficult, though; I prefer to drink teas at home with more controlled conditions and multiple chances to get to know them properly.

Not exactly my cup of tea (lol, puns) but for a flavored herbal tea it was pretty decent, based on other ones I've tried. On the plus side it was not very astringent at all, but unfortunately it tasted oddly soap-like and weird to me.
