Christmas Tea from Murchie's Tea & Coffee Ltd

Style: Flavored Black Tea – Region: Blend

90 / 100 Aroma: 10/10 Flavor: 5/5 Value: 4/5
Nov. 14th, 2021

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 ...

Sep. 22nd, 2021

RateTea has been good for my life, by motivating me to variegate my tea sampling, and opening up new flavor and olfactory worlds. 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...

Aug. 10th, 2021

Tropical fruit flavors are always a favorite, so (long overdue) I got some of this tea to try. My favorite mango-flavored black tea still is Hawaiian Islands Tea Company's "Mango Maui", but this comes in at a close second, and for now, is more readily available*.

Dry-bag aroma was more tea than mango. It's hard t...

Black Cherry from Tea Forte

Aug. 7th, 2021

I really like this tea. The cherry flavor and black tea flavor blend together well (although the ingredients list oddly doesn’t include cherry). I brewed it at 205° and it steeped well without creating bitterness. I used the packet of “single steep” tea twice. The second steep wasn’t quite as strong and partic...

Mauritius from Chado Tea

75 / 100 Aroma: 10/10 Flavor: 3/5 Value: 3/5
Aug. 3rd, 2021

First I need to mention I do not venture into 'flavored' tea territory very often. The aroma (dried and brewed) is unmistakably vanilla. Pleasant and brings to mind a bowl of ice cream. The liquor is a deep dark brown (steeped five minutes). The flavor has a solid vanilla taste. I might enjoy this tea now and then, but...

70 / 100 Aroma: 6/10 Flavor: 4/5 Value: 5/5
May. 5th, 2021

Several better Earl Greys exist in bags, but for the price (around $2.50/20 ct.), it's hard to beat. Dry-bag scent was firm and plain, but pleasant and strong, more so than most bagged Earl Greys. Closer inspection revealed likely why. Even though all the tea was settled at the bag's bottom, each bag itself so far h...

Cup at home, made from fine dark brown and black leaves of Ceylon. Pours slightly hazy dark copper brown. Clear aroma of black tea leaves, malty with notes and touches of cardamom. Ditto flavour, although the malty notes are less pronounced than in the aroma. Bitter, astringent but not aggressive, palate, with a leafy ...

One of my co-workers has been quaffing this tea with devoted fervor for a few months since I introduced him to drinking any tea. In turn, he gave me some of this. Knowing how much Harney tea tins cost even at Target, I wouldn't have bought this on my own, but it's not bad to try for free. I based the value on the kn...

Feb. 11th, 2021

This tea is pretty good for bagged tea -- more balanced than the herbal apple cinnamon tea. This is a solid tea when needing the convenience of a bag. I taste a bit of licorice, which I'm not a big fan of, but it isn't dominant. The cinnamon flavor is pretty nice.

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...
