English Breakfast Black Tea from Bigelow Tea

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

73 / 100 Aroma: 6/10 Flavor: 4/5 Value: 3/5
Aug. 8th, 2020

Not bad, considering this is a teabag. It tastes like a basic but not bitter black tea, and I do notice some raisin-like notes as well. It’d be a good at-work tea.

88 / 100 Aroma: 8/10 Flavor: 5/5 Value: 3/5
Jul. 24th, 2020

Half-litre pot at home, made from dark brown leaves of pure black (= red) Ban Lien tea. Pours nearly clear copper brown (against white china) with no sediment. Clear aroma of black tea, with leafy notes and mild nutty touches. Delicate, bitter, leafy flavour bordering on nutty and sweetish notes. Mildly astringent pala...

Jul. 16th, 2020

I was really excited to see loose-leaf tea for sale in ALDI, and I eagerly bought this. I can't remember how much it cost but I think it was around $5. I had written some time back about how frustrated I was at how bad the tea bag teas from Benner Tea Co, the ALDI generic brand, were.

ALDI consistently has high-qual...

Typhoo Tea from Typhoo

Jul. 14th, 2020

I always buy tea bags for eating in restaurants. In the USA, Lipton is the tea offered. I have been trying different brands of bagged tea. This was my first taste of Typhoo. It has a strong taste that does not linger in your mouth. Very dark brew. Has a nice punch that will pair well with an omelette.

Pleasant and mild aroma, this tea has a nice appearance. Dark leaves with some golden tips. The liquor is dark brown with a hint of honey color. Tasty and smooth on the tongue. A nice hint of malt.

I found a novelty tin (Buckingham Palace!) of this tea and bought it on a whim. The packaging has EU-style product labeling, but the 2g (instead of typical UK 3g) teabag fill means this was either intended for sale outside the UK, they're cheaping out, or both. The teabags in this tin were collectively sealed in a myla...

Taylor's has/had a "Pure Assam". Does the absence of that adjective here make this one "impure" by default? :-)

Seriously, I don't know if "Assam Tea" is the same as "Pure Assam", repackaged and rebranded, or a parallel offering. It has been a few years since I tried and reviewed "Pure Assam", so I can't compare...

Style: Lapsang Souchong – Region: Taiwan / Formosa

95 / 100 Aroma: 10/10 Flavor: 5/5 Value: 5/5
May. 20th, 2020

This is an excellent tea. I am not normally a lapsang souchong enthusiast, but this one is quite compelling. Smokey, but not overpoweringly so. It's rich but mellow, with a natural sweetness. Hints of cinnamon. I have tried both the loose leaf and teabags and they are equally fine. Highly recommended.

May. 4th, 2020

An unspectacular but good enough Ceylon tea. The aroma has a hint of freshly baked muffins to it. A 3 minute steep (which is what the directions called for) results in a bland but perfectly drinkable beverage.

May. 4th, 2020

The dry tea has almost no odor at all. The teabag smells slightly woody, which could either be from the tea or the paper. The tea looks to be CTC pellets that were ground up further. I wonder if the "Pure Assam" that this tea seems to have replaced was orthodox tea and that's the difference.

This tea smells tannic a...

English Breakfast Tea Bags from Taylors of Harrogate

Style: English Breakfast – Region: Blend

72 / 100 Aroma: 7/10 Flavor: 4/5 Value: 4/5
May. 4th, 2020

Each bag contains 2.5g of what looks like ground up CTC pellets. There's very little scent from the dry tea. It smells faintly woody, like a new newspaper.

This tea brews up dark. Before I've finished pouring the water, the tea is already darker than most black teas end up. By the time brewing's done, it's a deep br...

May. 1st, 2020

Dry, this tea smells vaguely of cocoa and molasses. It's understated, but pleasant. While brewing, the aroma is of light brown sugar, but not heavy. The cocoa from earlier is still there, but less pronounced than I expected based on the initial aroma and experience with other Sri Lankan teas. There's a faint note of ra...

A mild earthy aroma. Taste is mild with a slight woodsy after taste. Nice dark brown liquor. Very pleasant over all. This is a tea for anytime of the day sipping.

This tea has a pleasant mild earthiness. The liquor is a dark brown color. Mild flavor, with a subtle sweet/honey after taste. Certainly worth a try. I will purchase this tea again in the future.

Apr. 22nd, 2020

This is certainly a robust-tasting tea. It has some iron-like tannins and malty, smoky notes. The second infusion was a bit of a letdown - it had already lost a fair amount of its flavor by then. This was not super thrilling, but it was well worth the rock-bottom price.

You simply can't go wrong with this tea. The average tea drinker who buys bags of Lipton or Tetley would probably agree, because this is like a premium version of those products. This is smooth and pleasant, but not lacking in flavor. It contains dashes of caramel, fruit, steely tannins and a fresh, leafy aroma. It...

Black Tea from Lipton Tea

Apr. 7th, 2020

Lipton gets a bad rap. I get it too. It’s light, bland, and shallow.

I over-steeped my tea because I start with water that is less than a rolling boil, but really it was because I needed all that time to bring out any semblance of taste.

Lipton is a tea, but that’s about it.

You don’t even need two sente...

Classic English Breakfast tea but I expected more from Twinings here. You aren't hit by this tea (like by Typhoo). I like a bit of a stronger note in taste. This one is unspectacular. I really tried to find something special in this tea but didn't find anything.

I was a bit disappointed with this one. Almost no taste, if you compare it to other black teas (like Typhoo) far too mild and decent. Didn't give me any kick. Very boring taste.

This is your everyday black tea. Strong, a bit of an undertaste (my first thought was fish) but you get used to this tea quite quickly. Dark colour in your cup, strong, traditional tea, fair price. If you're looking for a classic everyday black tea for any day of time this is absolutely it.

The aroma is very mild. Liquor has an amber appearance. Flavor is mild. I'm a bit underwhelmed by this tea. I was expecting it to be stronger on all front. I will not bother with this particular blend again.
