drank White Peach by BourgeaTEA

As far as peach teas go, this one is darn good. Flavor profile is full and straddles the line between peach candy and natural peaches. Very nectary.

drank Banana Jack by Element Tea
69 tasting notes

The flavor profile was a little strong on this one. It primarily tastes like banana with a coconut backdrop. The tea base was a bit heavy. Something was a little off here for me, but I think this is a good one for experimentation with a splash of coconut milk or infusing in a couple ounces of coconut water.

drank White Grape by ESP Emporium

I have found that most grape flavored teas taste more like green grapes than red/purple ones. However, this one tastes purple grapes too me. The white tea is a little grassy and I felt that added authenticity to the flavor profile. Nicely done.

drank Detox by BourgeaTEA

The Pu-erh used in this one is rather mild so don’t let it scare you off. It primarily tastes of spice of lemons. I found it to be an enjoyable cup. Problem is that I don’t know how tea you get in small cannister.

drank Nirvana by American Tea Room

Quality leaf with huge pieces of fruit. Nicely balanced and I am a sucker for the fig backdrop. Unique, tasty and I just love fig tea!

have you tried the Toasted Fig yet? I sent a batch to Stephen for review but I am not sure I ever sent you a sample as we just introduced it before the holidays.

David, I haven’t tried it yet, but I do have a sample that I am looking forward to!

drank Lucari Chai by BourgeaTEA
69 tasting notes

This is rather spicy chai with a green tea base. I much prefer my chai with a strong black tea base. However, this is one of the better green rea options. This is quite spicy with cinnamon and ginger leading the way. The green tea base is still rather thin. If you are spice adverse, then avoid this one. If you like em spicy, then give this one a shot.

This is a bagged tea offering. Internal expection of the tea bag shows no pieces of hibiscus, cranberry or orange peel. There is also a medicinal taste to this one that stayed with me throughout the cup. I feel that cranberry and blood orange are rather dominant flavors and expect them to get in my face. This mostly tasted like rooibos with cranberry and a citrusy finish. I wanted some tart. Not for me.

This is definitely a quality tea. It is very smooth and mellow. Refined really. It consistent notes of wood, tobacco and honey. It also gave off notes of dark chocolate at hotter temps and was a bit starchy as it cooled. There was a mellow spice on the finish. I love a good Yunnan. This one is pricey but worth it if you like a good Golden Needle.

Nice review hello how are you?

LauraR

Good thanks. Haven’t been on much lately due to some back issues that are flared up by my computer chair. ;(

Geoffrey Norman

drank Moroccan Mint by Jing Tea

Definitely one of the better Moroccan Mint blends on the market. The peppermint tastes fresh and the gunpowder is of a higher quality than most. I didn’t find the peppermint to be overwhelmingly strong and syrupy. I could actually taste the green tea base. Thumbs up!

Have you ever had one of those Pillsbury Rolls with the Orange Glaze? The ones you buy in the refrigerator section, bake, and then add the orange glaze… This is one of those liquified. I shall be hogging the rest of this sample for myself. Most def YUM. I might have to get some of this.

yummy, sounds like a tea that does not need to be sweetened for sure!

LauraR

This one is yummy. And, yes, use sweetener sparingly.

Profile

Bio

I am a tea lover and have reviewed teas on Teaviews.com for quite a while and have logged over 300 tea reviews for them. Bear in mind that I have a huge amount of teas in my personal collection that I have never even reviewed.

I use the Teaviews rating system when rating on here. I guess the biggest thing I’d like to point out is that a tea in the 7 or 70 range is usually one that I would buy but would likely not place an order just to get it. It is a secondary item. Once you start getting up to an 8 or 80+, those are the teas that I would place an order just to get or are an item that I would likely replenish.

9-10
One of the best teas I’ve ever tasted — I will definitely be buying it again in the future!

7-8
An excellent tea — I would more than likely buy it again.

5-6
A decent tea — it was nice enough, but I wouldn’t go out of my way to purchase it again.

3-4
Not a very good tea — it wasn’t completely awful, but I’d not want to drink it again.

1-2
An awful tea — I couldn’t even finish drinking
