California Tea House Yunnan Golden Buds

9.8/10  —  3 reviews
Teaviews Member: Lynn Lynn's review:
"The flavor was rich and complex, with notes of bittersweet chocolate, tobacco, malt, caramel, a surprising hint of smokiness, and a long wildflower honey and spring water finish, which lingered nicely in the mouth. "

Teaviews Member: Vanessa Vanessa's review:
"This tea is slightly sweet, slightly malty, slightly peppery, and entirely delicious. Quite simply, this is what black tea should be. "

Teaviews Member: Dan Dan's review:
"Once again, Yunnan Gold is an extraordinary tea, and CTH's offering is on the top end of the scale, while somehow maintaining one of the lowest costs among competitors. An extraordinary value that'll make you forget about any other black tea. This is all you need."

"At first it’s almost like drinking spring water, but then the soft, sweet smoothness rolls back along the tongue, making itself known, with a slight woodsy undertone. "

"I'm quite a fan of silver needle teas, and have had my fair share of them. They rarely stand out from the rest of their kind, but this one seems leaps and bounds ahead of the pack. "

9/10  —  2 reviews
Teaviews Member: Laura Laura's review:
"I think that this one is a great choice for both seasoned oolong drinkers and those just venturing into rock oolong and a little wary of the roastedness. This one stands out because of its smoothness and sweetness."

California Tea House Vanilla Creme Earl Grey

8.8/10  —  3 reviews
Teaviews Member: Laura Laura's review:
"The thing that makes this Vanilla Creme Earl Grey special is that the finish of the cup is almost that of a creamy lemon chiffon with a bit of pizazz. That lemon creme flavor lingers in your mouth long after each swallow."

      10/10
Teaviews Member: Dan Dan's review:
"This is probably one of my favorite Earl Grey teas. It is comparable to come other Cream Earl Greys that I've tried, but outshines them all in its elegance and simplicity, and mild, gentle, sweet flavors - all while maintaining that distinct bergamot spiciness underneath it all."

"If you like rooibos, lemon and vanilla flavors, then this blend is not to be missed. It is a huge cup of yummo and I found myself all but licking the cup to get that last drop out of it."

Teaviews Member: Raven Raven's review:
"The deep, toasty reddish brown brew beckoned just like pie fresh from the oven with sweet scents of vanilla tobacco, toffee and cooked lemon rind as if the meringue was caramelized. "

"Wowsers B. Bowsers"

      8.5/10
Teaviews Member: Vanessa Vanessa's review:
"A tea that is sweet and slightly malty, and while I can see it having a devoted following, I am not sure it will be a hit with those that like a sturdy black tea. "

      7.7/10
Teaviews Member: Jamie Jamie's review:
"It comes with a curious complexity that somehow makes me think of hikes in the northwest when the scent of the forest floor comes up a bit sweet and acidic with a slightly coniferous flavor to it - though not in a smoky sense."

      8.0/10
Teaviews Member: Lynn Lynn's review:
"The resulting liquor was a rich reddish brown in color, with a rather flat aroma. The taste, however, was the sweetest I have experienced in a black tea, so sweet that I was tempted to forgo my usual splash of half and half. "

      9.5/10
Teaviews Member: Dan Dan's review:
"A seemingly-finicky tea that may be tricky to eek multiple infusions out of, and may possibly be greatly altered by the slightest fluctuations in temperature or steeping time. But when you catch it right, this is perhaps the tastiest cup of tea ever."

California Tea House Budda Hand Oolong

8.5/10  —  1 review
Teaviews Member: Vanessa Vanessa's review:
"The tea had a broth-like quality , mildly astringency, and a lingering flowery finish; in all, a surprisingly tasty oolong that also featured many qualities of green tea."

California Tea House Buddha Hand

"There was alot going on with the different flavors and I don't think the various components came together seamlessly. However, I will note that as far as functionality goes, this tea made me sleepy for several hours. "

Teaviews Member: Laura Laura's review:
"One of things that I think this blend actually offers is a bit of versatility in that the creaminess really brings out a different dimension in the cup, but it is excellent regardless."

Teaviews Member: Vanessa Vanessa's review:
"This is rich, hearty, and (more than) sweet enough to fully satisfy as a dessert. My main (and only) issue with this tea is that the sweetness of this tea may be a turnoff for some."

California Tea House Daughter Ring

7.7/10  —  3 reviews
Teaviews Member: Jamie Jamie's review:
"My overall impression of this delightful to look at (and taste) tea is one that is green and lightly vegetal with a lightly roasted flavor featuring hints of charcoal. "
Read review »
      7.5/10
Teaviews Member: Vanessa Vanessa's review:
"Having the vegetal properties of a green tea and the muted nuttiness of a white tea, Daughter Ring straddles the fine line between green and white teas."

      7.5/10
Teaviews Member: Dan Dan's review:
"To me, this is a green tea that acts just like a white. The flavors are subtle, and it's sweet - not vegetal. The presentation is unique, there are a few surprises along the way, and the longevity of enduring 3 infusions makes it a great value."

California Tea House Jasmine Pearl

7.6/10  —  4 reviews
Teaviews Member: Chelsy Chelsy's review:

Teaviews Member: Dan Dan's review:
"A pleasant white, with some bold characteristics that seem to set it apart from the pack. If you are looking for silver needle elegancy, look elsewhere. Yet if you are looking for earl grey intensity, you will also need to look elsewhere."

Teaviews Member: Jamie Jamie's review:
" If I were to buy this expecting a chai tea (even given that there are all sorts of ways to blend a chai), I would be sorely disappointed. Given that this tea is touted as an aphrodisiac blend, that's probably not the best start to things."

California Tea House Organic Darjeeling

7/10  —  4 reviews
Teaviews Member: Vanessa Vanessa's review:
