TARDIS Ten - Allonsy! from Tea & Absinthe

Style: Fruit Black Tea – Region: Blend

85 / 100 Aroma: 9/10 Flavor: 4/5 Value: 4/5

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...

I really like the slightly lemon-citrus smell of the dry leaf. It got me quite excited about trying this one. The lemon flavor is fairly subtle in this, but it's well blended. It tastes like a quality version of what I've seen called Lady Gray tea before. Certainly I would prefer this over most Earl Gray's I've tried, ...

Quite nice tea. The fruitiness is an accent with the tea flavor being dominant, but tgere is no bitterness. Overall, not bad.

And now, I get to the final tea of my pack of 24 (plus 2)!

Unfortunately, while this tea wasn't bad, I wasn't impressed with it either. It's a pretty straight forward blueberry and black tea flavor, though the tea isn't complex enough to make this really interesting. Maybe it'd be better with a little sugar? It's ju...

Surprisingly good! I liked the orange better than I expected. It finishes a little astringent, but otherwise is quite good. Smells good too, if you're in the mood for something moderately citrusy.

Feb. 11th, 2015

Surprisingly good! Though the flavor is better than the aroma (which is a bit weak), this is among the best blends between fruit and black tea that I've tried. Very smooth, neither bitter nor overly sweet. There's the hint of raisin-like flavor, but it's also properly balanced and not dominant. This cup also provides a...

Very solid tea. This is another one that reminds me of oatmeal with fruit bits in it. The tea is well balanced, not bitter, and slightly creamy. The apricot works great too. Quite pleasant, especially if you're needing something caffeine free. Not a top flavor for me, but one I could see myself occasionally craving. Th...

Sep. 12th, 2014

I haven't tried a lot of decaffeinated black teas, but I'm starting to think I may prefer them. I haven't tried the regular version of this tea yet, but I appreciate that it doesn't have the bitterness I commonly associate with some black teas. It tastes fruity and fresh, and smells wonderful too.

Though it's made o...

Lemon & Lime Twist from Ahmad Tea

Style: Fruit Black Tea – Region: Blend

50 / 100 Aroma: 6/10 Flavor: 2/5 Value: 3/5
Jul. 28th, 2014

With the first brewing I could detect a lime scent, but it was fairly subdued. The citrus flavors are even more muted when drinking. They did seem to smooth out the black tea for me, but not enough. I would have appreciated a brighter tasting cup.

There's a hint of bitterness at the end, though it wasn't intense. Th...

Not my tea, unfortunately--too strong with the black tea flavor for me. The little bit of strawberry flavor made the bitterness a little more palatable, so I certainly enjoyed this more than I would a simple black tea. The aroma was better, with the same two elements but with the fruit coming through a bit more strongl...

Definitely one of the best black teas I've tried. It isn't bitter (even though I accidentally brewed it for almost 9 minutes), and the blueberry flavor goes with it very well. The fruitiness is present, but not overwhelming and the flavor seems natural. As usual, I didn't add any sugar, milk, or lemon juice.

If you ...

Lady Grey from Twinings

Style: Fruit Black Tea – Region: Blend

Feb. 23rd, 2014

Meh. Again, I was underwhelmed by this tea from Twinings. Like their Earl Grey tea, I certainly appreciated the use of citrus to balance out the black tea. However, I found the overall effect unimpressive. I really need to try a high quality Earl Grey or Lady Grey tea to give these styles a fair shot. I'm glad I have a...
