Tropical White Tea from Heavenly Tea Leaves

Style: Flavored White Tea – Region: Blend

38 / 100 Aroma: 3/10 Flavor: 4/5 Value: 2/5
May. 26th, 2017

Yet another tea from a sampler that my roommate let me try! I was not a fan.

The leaf looks pretty, but doesn't smell great to me. There's an unpleasant smell, reminiscent of those artificial cheese curl snacks that I absolutely hate. Underneath that, the other smells are light and pleasant, floral and meloney, a...

A very good example of a type of flavored tea that I tend not to like. Sampled at Velvet Sky Bakery in Jenkintown.

The dry leaf of this tea was pretty finely broken, not like pictured in the beautiful picture.

This tea has an intense strawberry aroma, which I find cloying. It is, however, very natural, smelling...

White Ginger Pear from Tea Forte

50 / 100 Aroma: 5/10 Flavor: 3/5 Value: 2/5
Nov. 4th, 2014

The tea bag has pretty broken pieces of leaf. Brews up a hazy greenish-colored cup.

The pear aroma is just the right strength, and blends well with the base tea. I don't notice the ginger much at all. Ginger is a strong flavor and I expect it to add a bit of edge or spiciness, as well as warmth, and I sense none ...

73 / 100 Aroma: 8/10 Flavor: 4/5 Value: 3/5
Aug. 19th, 2014

An intriguing blend that I liked a lot. I had no idea what to expect, but I was pleased. Without a doubt, my favorite flavored or blended white tea yet.

The dry leaf has a very strong smell, suggestive of baked goods, like a pie or tart, perhaps with raspberry, strawberry, or lemon, and then fading into an aroma s...

May. 21st, 2014

I just ate a wonderful eggplant dish with pomegranate seeds last night at an Uzbek restaurant in NE Philly, so the flavor of pomegranate is fresh in my mind.

I do smell the pomegranate aroma in this tea, actually a little more in the dry tea bag, and a little less once it's brewed. But when drinking, what I mainly ...

Blood Orange from Octavia Tea

Style: Fruit White Tea – Region: Blend

57 / 100 Aroma: 6/10 Flavor: 3/5 Value: 2/5
Feb. 6th, 2014

A relatively mellow, medium-bodied orange-flavored tea, medium in color, and fairly middle-of-the-road in flavor. To be fair, I tend not to like flavored teas; I tried this one more out of curiosity.

Aroma is of orange and autumn leaves, with a hint of hay or straw. Flavor has a light bitterness, and light sournes...

Dec. 3rd, 2012

I can't shake the impression that this flavored tea tastes like tootsie roll pops. Not any particular type of them, just the generic tootsie roll pop taste that is in common between all of the different flavors. And I'm not really a fan of this flavor.

The leaf produces a relatively dark infusion, like a darker ba...

Pomegranate White Tea from Trader Joe's

Style: Fruit White Tea – Region: Blend

37 / 100 Aroma: 3/10 Flavor: 2/5 Value: 2/5
Oct. 10th, 2012

It's been a while since I tried this so my review is from a fuzzy memory, but I remember this tea blend as being fleetingly fruity and not having much of a strong presence of the base tea at all. Tasted pretty low quality, but then I've been consistently underwhelmed by Trader Joe's teas, so this was not surprising.

I had the opportunity to sample this tea at World Tea East, and speak to this company's founder, Brandon Ford. I was not only impressed with the teas, but with how Brandon's description of each tea meshed with my experience of it--I find it hard to capture the qualities of tea in words, so that was impressive.

40 / 100 Aroma: 3/10 Flavor: 4/5 Value: 1/5
Apr. 24th, 2012

I normally like Teavana's fruit-flavored blends, but this one had an overpoweringly artificial-seeming cherry quality to it. I liked the rose, and I liked the flavor imparted by the base tea (which was much folder than typical for white tea, yet still greener in character and less like the darker while teas like shou ...

White Tea - Vanilla from Good Earth Teas

Style: Flavored White Tea – Region: Blend

43 / 100 Aroma: 4/10 Flavor: 3/5 Value: 3/5
Mar. 13th, 2011

I made a 4-minute infusion.

Aroma is muddled, creamy vanilla, and some lemon from the lemongrass and lemon oil, but the lemon is an herbaceous lemon which doesn't blend well with the vanilla. The chamomile seems to add only body, and the rose is barely perceptible but I bet I'd notice it if it were taken out--I thi...

Jan. 14th, 2011

I tend to be highly impressed by Teavana's artful blends, but today was evidently not my day: I sampled this together with the Samurai Chai Mate and was disappointed with both.

The aroma and flavor profile of this tea are dominated by a tangy, sour fruit flavor and aroma that I suspect is some combination of the ros...

Earl White from Bentley's Tea

60 / 100 Aroma: 6/10 Flavor: 3/5 Value: 3/5
Sep. 10th, 2010

Strong bergamot aroma, with a much more citrusy quality than a typical Earl Grey. The aroma is almost lemony and suggests sweetness. Flavor is delicate and lightly sweet. The white tea presence is weaker but is still present. The white tea has a lighter character. This was not what I was expecting, but is very ple...

Apr. 15th, 2010

This tea has the characteristic qualities of lemon myrtle dominating the aroma...even though tea is the main ingredient, the tea presence is notably weaker. The cup is light in color and slightly opaque. There's a fair amount of astringency.

Interesting, and drinkable, but I would prefer a bolder presence of white...

This tea brews a fairly dark amber color. Aroma is mostly of coconut. I don't like the aroma...it's more like that of a coconut lotion or soap than tea. I can't notice much tea in the aroma...the tea is more present in the finish/aftertaste though.

Although I find the aroma very unpleasant, I must say I like the ...

Sep. 27th, 2009

This was surprisingly strong for a white tea. I brewed it for 4 minutes using a little over a cup with the teabag, and it was too strong. I recommend either brewing for a shorter time or using the teabag to brew two or more cups at once. This tea is quite good for multiple infusions; the pear comes out more in later...
