I have this same tea filter, but its made by Teeli. It looks 100% like this. I bought it at 7,59€ from local internet store about year ago, and its still good.

I love this, its easy to wash, you can even but it in dishwasher. It fits perfectly in any cup, and gives lot of free space for tea leaves. And when you want to reuse the tea leaves, just lift the filter and put the cap under it, and leave it there. It doesn’t leak.

drank Pure White Tea by Twinings
29 tasting notes

This has to be steeped carefully: at 95 degrees Celsius, for 1 minute (absolutely no longer).

The smell is very flowery and pleasant, the color is dark yellow/orange. This feels very soft in mouth, somewhat different feeling from black or green teas. Taste is very light, bit bitterness at aftertaste. This doesn’t taste anything at first, the taste comes slowly. Not good, but neither bad, average tea.

I’m surprised that this tea isn’t added here. Not even the company was here. Its black tea spiced with orange.
This isn’t actually very good, tastes cheap and industrial. It still is very refreshing tea. Pleasant smell, moderate bitterness. Maybe could work with less steep time.

drank Keemun Congou by Teekauppa.fi

This is definitely high quality green tea. Low steep temperature makes preparing hard and you can easily kill the taste with too hot water. This tastes like, green tea, with hint of black tea from same area, reminds me of Keemun Superfine black tea, but very remotely. Surely this could be very good tea, if water temperature is just right: 70 degrees Celsius

This is good and high quality tea. Gunpowder tea is very unique and rich flavor. Smell is very pleasant. Taste is very velvety and there is no bitterness at all! Instant favorite tea I will buy more!

This stuff is delicious!

Saw this tea first time so had to buy it. Plus I love orange flavored teas. Color of this one is brownish orange. Smell is light and sweet. They promise non-bitter taste, which is true. Sweet taste, this is nice tea, but not even near good teas.

I got this tea as Christmas present. It isn’t something you can find from supermarket, its from small gift shop. And tea company which made this is small one too, not very far from my place. There was no info how hot the water should be, but even boiling water doesn’t make this too bitter or strong. I didn’t expect whole leaves, but this has them too!

Well, this is green tea alright, very dark too. The color is brownish green. Smell is unique combination of the ingredients. There is slight bitterness in taste. The taste is very pleasant, not too strong, or too weak. I can taste the white chocolate too, even though cherry is dominating taste.

I can recommend this to anyone, if you can find it that is :D

drank Lemon Tea by Lipton
29 tasting notes

I’m weird person, I like this tea. Smell is heavenly, I love Lemon! This reminds me of summer so much.

Taste is very light, lemon doesn’t jump first like bergamot in Earl Grey. Its delayed. Lemon kinda counters the bitterness. You have to drink this slowly, and enjoy its fresh lemon. You get the “yuck!” feeling if you drink it too fast.

drank Darjeeling by Fairglobe
29 tasting notes

Bought this today from local Lidl. Don’t have high expectations, but…

Yes, this smells like good Darjeeling should. But wow, this is very plain tasting. Doesn’t taste anything. This needs either sugar or milk.

After adding sugar, this is much better. This tea doesn’t go high in my ranks, but its cheap, Fair Trade and Organic. Maybe honey would also add some taste to this.

drank Green Gunpowder by Lipton

This has interesting smell, smoky and sweet. This almost smells like tobacco, but more floral. Taste is hard to describe, but its smoky and fruity. Rather strong taste for green tea. Unlike other green teas, this needs boiling water.
