Warrior's Brew from Native American Tea Company

67 / 100 Aroma: 8/10 Flavor: 4/5 Value: 2/5
Nov. 24th, 2022

This is quite a tasty and well-conceived blend, novel yet nice in both aroma and flavor, holding its own in those departments with any herbal/black bagged combination out there. However, I wish it were stronger, more befitting its name.
The rectangular, stringless tea bags are small, about half the volume of Celest...

Nov. 23rd, 2022

I actually like this one. It isn't as good as loose-leaf tea would be, but for a tea bag it's nice. I brewed the water to 205°F and let the bag steep under one of those Primula hats for several minutes. Both black tea and peach were present in the strong flavor, but it didn't go bitter. Usually, black tea of fannings ...

Nov. 18th, 2022

This is the second loose-leaf Earl Grey I've had from Murchie's, and an outstanding example of the type, especially for someone like me who likes a bold, assertive tea. It is made from Assam, Keemun and Yunnan, and you bet the Assam asserts itself boldly in all phases of taste and aroma. Upon opening the bag, the dry...

Nov. 16th, 2022

Here's another in Celestial's fairly recent run of new black-tea blends. For a mass-marketed brand commonly available in retail stores, this rendition holds its own, but better quality can be had.

The dry aroma (especially when opening the sack or pouch in which the bags are packaged) may be the best part. This is...

Earl Grey Choice from Zhi Tea

35 / 100 Aroma: 6/10 Flavor: 1/5 Value: 1/5
Nov. 6th, 2022

It smells ok because of the lavender, however for me it kind of reminds me of soap which I understand there can be cultural differences with this. Not everyone would associate that with soap. The thing that ruins this tea though is the taste. It’s not that interesting and it’s actually quite bitter. It’s just not...

Earl Grey from Williamson Tea

Style: Earl Grey Tea – Region: ?????

70 / 100 Aroma: 8/10 Flavor: 4/5 Value: 4/5
Nov. 2nd, 2022

The round, tagless tea bags are packed into a sealed mylar pouch, but aren't individually wrapped. The freshly opened pouch smells of bergamot, but isn't as fruity as Williamson's Duchess Grey. The bergamot has an aroma that is present in the Duchess Grey, but otherwise unique to Willamson. It's fruity, but almost has ...

Earl Grey from Benner Tea Co

Oct. 5th, 2022

Benner English Breakfast is ALDI's regular "premium" offering. This Earl Grey is a periodic special.

The tea bags are packaged in individual cellophane pouches. The dry tea looks like CTC granules that have been further crumbled. It has a nice bergamot aroma.

The brewing tea smells of bergamot, but there's little...

Celestial Seasonings—for decades a specialist in herbal teas—seems to be marketing more black teas of late. I got this from a sampler pack alongside English Breakfast (already reviewed), Peppermint Peak (already reviewed...very tasty) and Earl Grey Creme (soon!). This one confuses me a bit for two reasons:

Earl Grey from Twinings

Aug. 5th, 2022

The dry tea is finely chopped and smells strongly of citrus. There are a few white flecks in the bag that according to the ingredients are probably bergamot peel.

I'm pretty sure that the citrus in Twinings Earl Grey is a blend. The bergamot is pronounced (as it should be in an Earl Grey), but I also taste sweet ora...

This is a mellow EG, with a smooth base tea and subdued bergamot flavor. Usually I prefer my EG with lemon and sugar, but imo this works best with milk and just a little sugar.

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

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.

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.

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.
