CHOICE Expert Rating


What is the CHOICE Expert Rating?

CHOICE Expert Rating

This is the product's overall performance score, based on key tests conducted by our industry experts in the CHOICE labs.

Recommended View more details.

We recommend black tea bags with a CHOICE Expert Rating (our overall score) of 70% or more.

CHOICE Expert Rating View more details.

Four expert taste testers were asked to rate each tea sample on a seven-point scale ranging from "excellent" to "terrible", looking at appearance, flavour, texture, aroma, aftertaste and mouthfeel. These results were then converted to an overall score to form the CHOICE Expert Rating.

Intensity score View more details.

Our expert judges scored each sample for intensity from 1 to 7, with 7 being the most intense. This was converted into a percentage to form the intensity score, but does not factor into the CHOICE Expert Rating.

Flavour profiles View more details.

The flavour profiles our experts used to describe each tea sample. These included floral, fruity, earthy, vegetal, umami, nutty, sweet, smoky and fire, with most of these having subcategory profiles.
