Drink the Leaf Earl Grey

9.5/10  —  1 review
Teaviews Member: Geoff Geoff's review:
"Depending on the type of Earl drinker you are, the middling bergamot presence might be deemed lackluster. I personally found it satisfying in its subtlety."

Drink the Leaf Kuki Cha

9.2/10  —  2 reviews
Teaviews Member: Chelsy Chelsy's review:
"Exceptional Kuki Cha, fantastically light and wispy, and even overbrewed (when you make an oops) it is still dashingly wonderful. Raising my tea cup high up to Drink the Leaf's Kuki Cha."

"What always set kukicha apart from genmaicha - at least for me - was the sense of smoothness and subtlety."

"If you are looking for a sweeter, juicy tasting tea, this is not it, but if you like your black tea with a twist, this more than delivers."

Drink the Leaf Organic Hong Tao Mao Feng

8.5/10  —  1 review
Teaviews Member: Dan Dan's review:
"I've had lesser-quality Keemun teas before and enjoyed them for what they were. The flavors that come through on this tea, however, are worthwhile to seek out. The playful nature of complex flavor is welcoming, and subtlety is key."

Drink The Leaf Jasmine Pearl

8.5/10  —  1 review
Teaviews Member: Samantha Samantha's review:
"The pearls unfurled into what reminded me of little hermit crabs that then transformed into sea anemones as they fell to the bottom of my pot. This is definitely a tea to bring to a party or for when guests come over. "

Teaviews Member: Numi Numi's review:
"This isn't a weak or too-delicate tea, there is enough substance here to encourage any jasmine lover to try this out. This is very enjoyable for anytime."

Drink the Leaf Golden Pu-erh

8.5/10  —  2 reviews
Teaviews Member: Dan Dan's review:
"Once getting beyond the funky earthiness of this tea, it's quite rewarding. This is real-deal pu-erh, and I feel that it benefits from its longer steep times as opposed to the gong-fu approach. It really throws itself out there and isn't ashamed to be itself. It's definitely not a tea for everyone (as with most pu-erh teas) and either you love it or you hate it. "

Teaviews Member: Lynn Lynn's review:
"As I sipped my tea, waiting for the third pot to steep, I found myself wondering how on earth anyone ever came up with the process that produces pu-erh? Why did that seem like a good idea? It’s like the first person to eat a lobster. Was it on a dare?"

Drink the Leaf Organic Lu'An Melon Seed Green

7.9/10  —  4 reviews
Teaviews Member: Katie Katie's review:
"The second steep makes a more subdued yet equally enjoyable cup of tea. During the first cup, I found myself excited by its nutty and sweet flavour. During the second cup, I found myself deeply relaxed with its grassier and more vegetal flavour."

Teaviews Member: Numi Numi's review:
"The light green liquid has a medium body that tastes like a great mix of oolong and green teas. It's light and refreshing like greens, yet with more natural deep sweet, borderline woodiness that makes this delectable."

Teaviews Member: Kari Kari's review:
"The aroma of the dry leaves was different- it had a quiet feeling with just a touch of sweetness. After I infused the leaves there was a classic green smell."

Teaviews Member: Troy Troy's review:
"There is both a slightly nutty and slightly sweet quality to this tea, that's probably the source of the 'Melon Seed' in the name, but what really stands out is the slightly grassy broccoli flavors with a slight citrus tone that grows at each additional steep."

Drink the Leaf Keemun Hao Ya A

7.8/10  —  2 reviews
Teaviews Member: Babette Babette's review:
"There’s a lot of promise even before brewing the cup. Brewing it with boiling water, the liquor infuses to a lovely reddish brown very quickly and does not become bitter, even with left a bit longer on the leaf."

Drink the Leaf Citrus Rooibos

7.6/10  —  3 reviews
Teaviews Member: Jamie Jamie's review:
"For those who enjoy rooibos and aren't looking for day-glo flavors to enhance the experience, this quite subtly citrus but enjoyable rooibos makes a nice cuppa. "

Teaviews Member: Laura Laura's review:
"Similar to the aroma, I would say that the flavor leans towards tasting more of lemon than of orange, but it is not dominated by the lemon. In my opinion the ingredients used in this blend tasted very fresh and made it such that no sweetener was needed in order to enjoy this."

Teaviews Member: Dan Dan's review:
"This is an excellent quality rooibos, with a unique citrus angle. Appealing to all the senses, this is highly recommended for late night sipping, or soothing an aching throat."

"The tea is sturdy in its flavor, which could best be described as a spinachy-asparagus base with a hint of sweet nuttiness."

"A dinner tea. An odd experience led me to describe this tea's taste as Mediterranean. The underlying grit somehow reminded me of pita chips and hummus. I like it."

"The name Cloud and Mist refers to the clouds that hover over the tea covered mountain peaks in China, offering shade. This tea offers the same shady feeling on a nice sunny day! "

Teaviews Member: Raven Raven's review:
"The tea pulls one in with its gliding, slightly oily medium body and good intensity of fir and spinach flavours that linger with light butter. Uncomplicated and without any dryness, the tea is easy drinking yet the texture seems most engaging with its silky feel."

"This is a generously fruit flavoured tea for a green, feeling very round and slightly oily on the palate. It's a great choice for those that prefer their green teas on the less grassy side. "

Drink the Leaf Organic Selimbong Estate FTGFOP1 2nd Flush

7/10  —  2 reviews
Teaviews Member: Troy Troy's review:
"This Tea is very approachable, I would say even to those who generally couldn't stand Black tea. The tannins are rich, but not very strong, and nowhere near overpowering, they're more complex than potent."

Teaviews Member: Vanessa Vanessa's review:
"The flavor resembled what a pack of cigarettes smelled like, and there was a very subtle smoky character to this tea. I suppose if you enjoy chewing tobacco, then you might enjoy this tea."

Drink the Leaf Red Peony

7/10  —  2 reviews
Teaviews Member: Numi Numi's review:
"The tea is lightly sweet and smoky, though it makes me look for a depth that isn't there. There is also a slight astringency that is just right, but indicates that a longer steeping time wouldn't work for me. This would be tasty with a bit of honey and milk to enhance the sweetness that's there."

"Perhaps the raspy finish to the voice of this tea isn't perfect, but it engages my senses similarly to the way that a female vocalist like Stevie Nicks does. Ponder that. Hopefully it makes some sense! "
