This is a nice, mellow oolong, and comes in at a very attractive price. There is nothing attention-grabbing about it; it is just a good tea. The aroma hints at woodlands and hay, and the flavor offers more of the same, with a dash of minerally tannins and vegetal notes. It is fairly light on the palate, and goes down very easily, leaving a mild, peppery aftertaste. This is well worth the current price ..read more

Review of Upton Tea Imports Upton Pumpkin Spice Chai by Trailesque

A mellow pumpkin spice tea, featuring the spices one would expect (e.g. ginger, cinnamon, clove, etc.) I tasted vanilla in the mix, but it does not contain vanilla. Maybe that was coming from sunflower petals or natural flavorings. I am glad they did not overdo the clove or allspice or nutmeg, that is a mistake that people sometimes make when they are doing pumpkin spice stuff. The price, by Upton standards anyway, is high, but it is an enjoyable tea ..read more

Review of Yunnan Sourcing Assamica Black Tea from Mei Zi Qing Village by Alex Zorach

I tried this tea right when I ordered it, but did not like it. It had few objectionable qualities, and was actually quite smooth, but simply seemed a little boring. However, I set it in my cupboard for quite some time and sure enough, it has started tasting more interesting after about a year and a half. Still, it is not my favorite and I thought it was expensive relative to how much I enjoyed it. The dry leaf has a rather different aroma from most of the Yunnan red teas I've tried. The smell reminds me ..read more

As with their "Green Tea with Coconut & Ginger", I got this at a last-day estate sale for a quarter (proportionate fraction of a bulk pantry buy). Not per bag, but for the entire tin! That's the best value I've had for a good tea. However, you probably can't match that. So how costly is it, for real? A peek at the bottom of the 30-sachet tin revealed the original sticker price of $10.25 retail, since inflated to $12.89 on Amazon as of this writing. As my grown kids' former teen peers might have said ..read more

This tea is really aromatic and smells toasty and bready. It tastes how it smells however it’s just a bit too astringent for my taste but it definitely isn’t the worst and overall it’s a high quality tea, I’m just personally sensitive to astringency ..read more

This is my first black tea that I've ever tried from Wuyuan county; prior to this I have only had green teas, which I've tended to like. The dry leaf has a fine texture and looks slightly greyish with reddish highlights. It has a pleasing aroma that strongly resembles the lighter examples of Keemun, but is rather different from the darker Keemuns I've tried. The aroma of the dried leaf is a bit more subtle than Keemun and seems perhaps more complex or nuanced, with more vegetal or herbaceous notes. T ..read more

This is a really wonderful tea! It’s not astringent or bitter at all but it’s still thick bodied and flavorful! It’s a black tea but it has notes of green tea flavor! It even has a subtle toasty grain flavor which is suggestive of genmaicha. I love it ..read more

I've tried what I'm pretty sure is this same exact grade of tea from the same garden, but sold by Upton Tea Imports, a while back, and I loved it. I loved it this time too! The brewed cup has a strong and complex aroma. It has a moderate toastiness to it, with notes of cocoa and strong notes of wintergreen, which I love. The flavor is naturally quite sweet, tasting as if honey has been added even when drinking it unsweetened, but there is enough astringency to give it body. As when I sampled this tea ..read more

The aroma is really nice with notes of dried fruit. The taste is pretty nice too and it has very little astringency which is how I like it, however there is a bit of bitterness and the tea is also slightly watery and not as thick bodied as I’d like. Even with all those criticisms though, it’s still a perfectly pleasant tea to drink ..read more

Review of Murchie's Tea & Coffee Ltd Apricot Tea Bags by Tchuggin' Okie

Murchie's has a large repertoire of teas; most last, some don't. This one has been around since at least the mid 2000s, when we started ordering from them, so it must have built a following. I finally decided to order it at the behest of my wife, who likes all things apricot. It doesn't disappoint. The aroma and flavor aren't quite as potent as a few of their other fruit and berry teas, such as black currant, coconut and raspberry (haven't tried their lemon tea yet since I'm not a big lemon fan, and ..read more
