Lady Grey (Loose) from Twinings

Style: Fruit Black Tea – Region: Blend

62 / 100 Aroma: 7/10 Flavor: 4/5 Value: 3/5
Jun. 23rd, 2022

The loose tea is a rather broken black tea blend with visible bits of citrus peel and blue cornflower petals. It smells strongly like fresh oranges, but the tea aroma is quite faint. Adding hot water brings out a malty aroma from the tea, but the citrus still predominates.

The bulk of the flavor is citrus. The blend...

May. 17th, 2022

Republic teas usually are on the costly side; however, I grabbed this one on sale at a Dallas Whole Foods. "Value" is based on the normal prices for other Republic teas (retailing upwards of 8-10 bucks for 50-pouch columnar steel tins), and how this tea doesn't pack the punch it should for reputably strong flavors of ...

Congo Bongo from SerendipiTea

Style: Flavored Black Tea – Region: India

70 / 100 Aroma: 8/10 Flavor: 3/5 Value: 3/5
May. 12th, 2022

This is an Indian black tea flavored with organic coconut, organic marigold/calendula, and coconut and mango flavoring - so it is very tropical in character. It was quite nice with milk and sugar, or with just sugar, sort of dessert like. I bet it would be good on ice as well.

Here's another case of a tea with multiple marketing personalities across target audiences. RateTea states this product is retired/discontinued, and perhaps it is in the U.S. However, it's still available on amazon.com with an "imported" label, as of this writing (for nearly $12 per 20-ct box!). I got the remainder...

Double Bergamot Earl Grey Tea from Stash Tea

Style: Earl Grey Tea – Region: ?????

73 / 100 Aroma: 9/10 Flavor: 3/5 Value: 3/5
Apr. 7th, 2022

The foil-sealed tea bags each contain just shy of 2g of tea. The box claims a net weight of 33g in 18 bags, which makes for 1.8g of tea.

The dry tea bag smells strongly of bergamot. It also smells fresher than most other Earl Grey, like freshly cut fruit. This may be the fruitiest-smelling Earl Grey I've tried.

Upton East Frisian Sunday Tea from Upton Tea Imports

Style: Flavored Black Tea – Region: Assam, India

75 / 100 Aroma: 9/10 Flavor: 4/5 Value: 3/5
Jan. 11th, 2022

This is a medium strength tea with some light, woody tannins. It goes best with milk, but it works with lemon and sugar also. It has vanilla in it, and that helps give it a nice aroma, and has a subtle impact on the flavor. Overall, it is a good, versatile tea that I would buy again.

Upton Cacao Kisses Colombian Black Tea from Upton Tea Imports

Style: Flavored Black Tea – Region: Colombia

85 / 100 Aroma: 8/10 Flavor: 5/5 Value: 4/5
Dec. 16th, 2021

Here is a successful marriage of black tea with cacao. When drunk with milk and sugar, a pleasant chocolate flavor emerges that blends well with the base tea, which (surpise!) one can taste. This is a nice treat from Upton.

I'm a sucker for rich, strong, flavored black teas, and two of my very favorite flavors are peppermint and vanilla. This seasonal tea combines all three, into one of the best flavored loose-leaf blends I've ever had. The product releases a very creamy, minty aroma on opening the dry sack, which I could stand there an...

Dec. 13th, 2021

I am happy with the 2021 version of this. The amount of spices hits the spot, and they blend well with the base tea. It is a little on the mild side, with vanilla, clove, almond, and a touch of citrus. I like it best with honey and milk, but other combinations also get the job done. Very reasonably priced too.

The aroma of this tea is incredible. I love grapefruit so I curious to try it. I usually do not drink flavored teas. This tea is enjoyable. It brewed up to a deep amber/brown liquor (5mins). The taste is light, the citrus is there with a subtle hint of vanilla. I think it would pair well with a sweet desert (lemon cake...

Call me a complete sucker for quality teas of this ilk, I suppose. This is Murchie's version of Constant Comment, which I also rate very highly, but with a few differences. In addition to cloves, orange peel and cinnamon, which the Bigelow product uses, Murchie's adds vanilla. This makes it less sharp than Constant ...

What Murchie's does well⁠, they utterly excel, and that's most of their teas. But on very uncommon occasions they spin out a head-scratching clunker that grossly defies their sterling reputation. This, friends, is the latter.

As an OU football fan, a great analogy is that one time just about every season when ...

How's that for advertorial testimony? :-) That, however, has included getting me to sample nasty to mediocre teas, as well as some very good ones I otherwise wouldn't have had. This clas...
