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.

Feb. 13th, 2021

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...

Cinnamon Express Black Tea from Celestial Seasonings

Style: Flavored Black Tea – Region: Blend

80 / 100 Aroma: 8/10 Flavor: 4/5 Value: 4/5
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.

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...

Dec. 31st, 2020

Prep: 200F, 5min

Aroma: Maple, brown sugar, chai spice. This is a nice smelling tea! 8/10

Flavor: This is a very good one. The maple is pronounced but not aggressive, the sweet and spicy plays fantastically. Even more so, the aftertaste is really inviting for another sip. 9/10

Dec. 30th, 2020

Prep: 200F, 5min

Aroma: You really almost smell butter cream icing. It’s a nice note but it’s not what I typically associate with red velvet cake. 7/10

Flavor: This also has a cake batter / icing type note. It’s pretty nice. 7/10

Body: Fairly full. It’s a nice compliment to the cake type drink. 8/10...

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 ...

Aroma: This tea reminds me of a chocolate covered biscotti. Really inviting, very dessertlike. 8/10

Flavor: Very cocoa forward with a minor note of almond. 8/10

Body: This guy is a touch thin. More heft would make this decadent. 6/10

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 ...

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...

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 ...

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...
