The black base isn’t bitter and doesn’t oversteep, but the compliment flavours don’t seem to go with it very well. The hibiscus is acidic (not overly sour though) and doesn’t go with the spicy ginger aftertaste. Ginger should be paired with sweet or salty, but not hibiscus and fruity stone fruit (not particularly “peachy”, more like generic fruitiness) It is ok iced, but not something I would buy again.

Flavors: Berry, Fruity, Ginger, Hibiscus, Peach, Spicy, Stonefruits, Tannin

drank Peach Iced by Allegro
239 tasting notes

Not bad for a bagged iced tea. It’s light, fruity, and refreshing. The peach flavor is subtle and not fake tasting.

The base isn’t at all astringent and bitter, so this may be good for people who don’t prefer black teas.

Flavors: Peach

The taste of this tea is awesome. There is definitely a prominent licorice or anise essence for me, which I love. Fennel tea is one of my favorites for having this property. But when mixed with the citrus and mint notes, it’s refreshing to drink. I never get tired of it. But what really makes this tea, is the aroma. You smell it coming out of the packet, and it just makes you happy. Good go-to with low caffeine.

Flavors: Anise, Citrus, Licorice, Spearmint

drank Organic Phoenix Oolong by Allegro

Grabbed this in the bulk section at Whole Foods because it smelled divine and the description said, “notes of apricot”. Oh, yum. Was surprisingly expensive though; a few cups of tea for about $4. Usually bulk tea is cheaper, but whatever.

Oversteeped in lower-than-normal temperature water, it’s surprisingly good. I definitely get apricot, and also a roasty, toasty kind of smell and feel, with more of that flavor coming through than anything. I don’t LOVE it, but, it’s quite nice, and I’m really happy I didn’t ruin it.

Flavors: Apricot, Roasted, Toasty

Preparation
180 °F / 82 °C 8 min or more 2 tsp 12 OZ / 354 ML
OMGsrsly

Oh, the cost is disappointing. I bought the white before to try steeping it for 15 minutes like Mariage Freres recommends (it does work!) and I think I paid 90 cents for about 1/2 cup of tea…

drank Himalayan Green Tea by Allegro
137 tasting notes

I bought this tea a few months ago and kind of forgot about it, so when I made it today, I expected to be disappointed. It’s not a tea I would keep stocked regularly, but it’s a decent bagged Darjeeling green tea. I used two bags for 16 ounces, and the taste was slightly light for my liking. It has a nice fruity Darjeeling flavor, and no bitterness, but I may try backing off to 12 ounces for 2 bags to see if I can get a little more flavor out of it.

Drank this for the first time because it was free at work and it ended up being something I drank at work for months because I didn’t bring my own tea. This tea is actually quite nice for a bagged tea this is quite nice and strong. While I enjoy this tea I have come to realize since I have drank it multiple times that alternative loose leaf teas with the same taste are significantly better.

Backlog (last one!). On our last day we killed some time before dinner at that same café. Apparently in between the two times we went there, they got new tea, because this one wasn’t there before! This was interesting—I’ve never had a green Darjeeling before. The Chinese green is very vegetal but I do taste something that reminds me of the fruitiness of a black Darjeeling. It’s a little sweet and makes an interesting cup. Not bad!

drank China White Citrus by Allegro

Backlog. After a long day of shopping we stopped into a cute little café on the square for hot drinks (coffee for dad, tea for mom and me). I had never had this brand before, or even heard of it, but this was not bad. I tasted more tangerine than lemon in this, but it managed to retain a little of the sweet hay tone I like in white tea—impressive for bagged!

Awesome tea. Solid flavour with some spice kick to it. I’m a fan

drank Happy Tummy by Allegro
10 tasting notes

Being a lifetime sufferer of stomach problems, I’m always on the lookout for anything that will calm my insides.

Out of the package, this is pleasantly minty, but not unlike anything else I’ve previously had. Most stomach soothing teas load up on the peppermint, and as I result despite my love of peppermint flavor, I cannot drink straight peppermint tea anymore. I wasn’t expecting much from this one that I hadn’t had before.

Thankfully, this one surprised me.

It has peppermint, yes, but not the wet grass, low grade peppermint that I’m used to in bagged teas. The cinnamon and ginger lend the whole thing a pleasant warming feeling, and the peppermint lends a pleasant tingle to it all. It does taste a little plant-y, yes, but not in an unpleasant way.

Over all, it did calm this morning’s upset stomach, so it does what it says on the label without being overly sweet or tasting exactly like every other peppermint or ginger stomach calming tea on the market, instead finding a pleasant middle ground between the two that actually is soothing.

Yep. This is a pretty decent white tea. And considering it was something silly like $10/100g, a pretty good deal as well.

It has that thickness that I expect, although it smells almost a little earthy behind the floral. It pulls a little astringent too. Idk what this means, but I do like the flavours. It’s nothing like Butiki’s Watermelon Xylophone base – that one outclasses this one any day of the week. But the price is right!

I don’t know that I’d stock this tea, but if I happen to shop in that particular Whole Foods, I’d definitely consider getting a little more. (PS. Their dispensing method SUCKS. Gigantic glass jars with lids, and spoons shoved into the tea. So. Ymmv.)
