69 / 100 Aroma: 6/10 Flavor: 4/5 Value: 4/5
Jan. 8th, 2021

My wife is trying to cut back caffeine intake, and had me include this offering in the latest virtual "Murchie's run" that we do a time or two per year. And being a big fan of both happy marriages and the $CAD---->$USD exchange rates the last few years, I did not object.

Now that I've tried the tea, I'm glad that I...

Chocolate Earl Grey from DAVIDsTEA

Style: Earl Grey Tea – Region: ?????

64 / 100 Aroma: 6/10 Flavor: 3/5 Value: 3/5
Dec. 29th, 2020

Prep: 200F, 5min

Aroma: Clearly earl grey. Bergamot is very strong. Not unpleasant but a little disjointed. 6/10

Flavor: I tried this plain and then added a splash of almond milk. The milk blended out some rough edges and left a nice citrus flavor with the lightest kiss of cocoa. 7/10

Body: Medium to medium ...

Candy Apple Tea from Adagio Teas

56 / 100 Aroma: 5/10 Flavor: 3/5 Value: 3/5
Dec. 26th, 2020

Prep: 212F, 5min, 2tsp, 16oz

Aroma: The aroma of the dry tea had a lot more going on that the liquid. In the mug, I’m really only getting pure black tea (which is fine but this is designed as a flavored tea). 6/10

Flavor: This isn’t what I’d call overly flavorful. That said, there is a nice black tea ba...

Dec. 25th, 2020

Prep: 212F, 5min, 2tsp, 16oz

It’s Christmas and all of my gifts this year were tea. I’ve had quite a day of sampling some new blends. I’m probably well over the caffeine limit but let’s keep the train rolling.

One of my gifts was a holiday adagio set with six 1oz tins. Most of the blends sounded tasty ...

Cardamom French Toast from DAVIDsTEA

Dec. 25th, 2020

Prep: 200F, 2.5tsp, 16oz, 7min

Aroma: There is something to be said for a tea smelling like WGT it’s called. There is a sense of buttery, sugary, french toast. 8/10

Flavor: This is in the zone as well. It does lean on the sweeter side of French toast but this has that richness that you’d associate with break...

Prep: 212F,5min, 2tsp, 16oz water

Aroma: Really getting the black tea malty notes but not a ton of anything else. 6/10

Flavor: This comes across primarily as a creamy black tea. I’m not sure if maybe I just need to shake the tin a bit. It’s a good black tea though! 6/10

Body: Fairly full bodied tea. 7/1...

Earl Grey from Twinings

Dec. 19th, 2020

I’m not an expert on earl gray. This may be the first I’ve ever had.

Prep: 200F, 5min, 2.5tsp, 16oz

Aroma - There is a ton of citrus exploding out of the cup. I can’t pick up much else, honestly.

Flavor: A little bit of orange peel, more orange zesty notes. It’s pretty hard to get to the actual tea....

Dec. 7th, 2020

Having not been either impressed nor repulsed by Bigelow's regular Earl Grey, and having not gotten any new teas to review for some months, and having to work down a stockpile of reviewed teas, I finally raided my wife's cache of the decaf version to try it for a report here. I've missed RateTea more than I've missed ...

Comfort and Joy from Republic of Tea

75 / 100 Aroma: 8/10 Flavor: 4/5 Value: 5/5
Dec. 5th, 2020

Prep: double teabag, 12 oz, hot.

Aroma: this is a spice-driven tea. It’s hard to get past the cinnamon and nutmeg. I think there is an apple note but it’s way behind the spice assault.

Flavor: The flavor, ironically, is all about the apple with a mild cinnamon spice. There may be some cranberry notes trying ...

Holiday Tea from Harney and Sons

Style: Flavored Black Tea – Region: ?????

80 / 100 Aroma: 8/10 Flavor: 4/5 Value: 4/5
Dec. 3rd, 2020

This was another good value tea offered by Harney & Sons. Hats off to their tea blenders, that is an area they seem to excel in - taking mediocre teas, adding to them, and making them into something better. This seems like a cheap Chinese black tea that is nicely spiced up (with citrus, almond, clove, safflowers, and...

Cup at home, made from a teabag. Pours hazy dark brown (against white china) with sediment. Intense aroma of malt, bergamot oil, citrus and, well, horse manure, if you ask me, with some leafy notes of black tea. Bitter flavour of black tea, with some malty notes (Assam?) and citric touches and hints of bergamot oil. As...

Caveat: ignore my lofty rating if you don't like coconut, or coconut-flavored teas. Then again, those repulsed by coconut are unlikely to purchase this product anyway. :-)

Since I do enjoy coconut a great deal, on its own and as an attachment to many things from tea to shrimp to candy and cake...wow. Of all the ...
