English Breakfast Lemon from Twinings

Style: Fruit Black Tea – Region: Blend

48 / 100 Aroma: 5/10 Flavor: 3/5 Value: 3/5
May. 11th, 2020

Dry or steeping, this tea smells of lemon candy.

The tea is pretty one-dimensional. The flavor is lemony with a slightly astringent, smoky finish. The spent teabags have a curious pink tinge to them. I'm guessing that it might be something like hibiscus for tartness, though none is specifically listed in the ingredi...

Lemon & Orange Tea Bags from Taylors of Harrogate

Style: Fruit Black Tea – Region: Blend

48 / 100 Aroma: 7/10 Flavor: 2/5 Value: 2/5
Feb. 28th, 2020

The tea in the bags is in small enough pieces that it's difficult to tell if it started out orthodox or CTC, but I think it's orthodox. It smells pleasently lemon-orange, but no tea shines through yet. After adding the water, the tea smells like fresh orange pulp. The tea itself is muted with the barest hint of malt ri...

Lemon Lift Black Tea from Bigelow Tea

Style: Lemon Black Tea – Region: ?????

63 / 100 Aroma: 7/10 Flavor: 3/5 Value: 3/5
Aug. 8th, 2019

The dry teabag smells like a spiced cake, like carrot cake or gingerbread. The spice is predominantly cinnamon (mellow "Ceylon" cinnamon rather than the hotter cassia), but there's something else there, too, like nutmeg or ginger.

Interestingly, the instructions say to only steep for two minutes. I'm ignoring their ...

Peach & Passion Fruit from Ahmad Tea

Style: Fruit Black Tea – Region: Blend

62 / 100 Aroma: 7/10 Flavor: 3/5 Value: 3/5
Mar. 5th, 2019

Both the dry tea and steeped liquor have a perfumy peach aroma that smells to me like peach Jolly Rancher candy (a discontinued flavor, sadly). There's just enough passion fruit to be detectable, but I bought this particular flavor for the passion fruit and am a bit disappointed that it isn't stronger.

The fruit fla...

Raspberry Royale® Black Tea from Bigelow Tea

Style: Fruit Black Tea – Region: ?????

65 / 100 Aroma: 7/10 Flavor: 3/5 Value: 4/5
Jun. 9th, 2018

I like this tea. The flavor is quite complex and I'm not sure which flavors are the tea itself and which are "other natural flavors." The malt sweetness of the tea is foremost and the raspberry flavor is unmistakable, but subtle. The tea tastes alternately of Ceylon and Assam, coupling the malt with an almost roasted f...

Iced Black Tea with Raspberry from Pure Leaf

Style: Fruit Black Tea – Region: Kenya

68 / 100 Aroma: 8/10 Flavor: 3/5 Value: 3/5
Jun. 8th, 2018

The dry tea in the sachets is broken, but in decent-sized pieces. Pieces of hibiscus flower are apparent. The sachets smell like dried raspberries with an additional herbal, leafy scent.

Adding the water intensifies the raspberry. It doesn't quite smell like fresh raspberries, but it doesn't smell artificial, either...

Iced Black Tea with Peach from Pure Leaf

35 / 100 Aroma: 5/10 Flavor: 2/5 Value: 2/5
Jun. 2nd, 2018

The plastic sachets of tea are transparent enough to see the tea leaves and some of the flavorings. The leaves are obviously broken, but the pieces are the same size as in the Pure Leaf loose leaf offerings. Looking closely, I can identify pieces of hibiscus and orange peel.

The dry tea smells overwhelmingly of fres...

Lemon Lift® Decaffeinated Black Tea from Bigelow Tea

Style: Fruit Black Tea – Region: ?????

60 / 100 Aroma: 6/10 Flavor: 4/5 Value: 3/5
Aug. 28th, 2017

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...
