drank Lotus by Tazo
22 tasting notes

I love Tazo teas and this is my favorite of their line-up. The tea liquor is a dandelion wine yellow. It’s aroma is light and reassuring for the person with a cold or just in need of comfort. It has such sweet notes of butter and lemon that still don’t assassinate the green tea taste. I didn’t find it to be especially floral, but the hints of floral were still present.

It’s far from a traditional concept of a green tea. So don’t expect that. You will be upset. It hasn’t the grassy or vegetable notes of some of the more tradition green teas.

I’ve always liked their green teas. Though it isn’t as good as most loose leaf, it is definitely up there in terms of bagged quality. The “Zen” Green Tea is also quite good from them as well.

I’ve tried their Zen too… And like you, for bagged tea, Tazo seems to have something on most others… The Zen was more traditional than the Lotus and the China Green Tips was even more so… I suppose I liked Lotus best because it was so different in just the right way. Zen was a close second. A nice flavorful green with plenty of lemongrass making it more…tart, than Lotus. But both great bagged green teas.

I mean well, despite being a finicky tea snob. That said, I don’t usually traffic outside of Tazo, Adagio and the odd brand. I only drink tea when I can afford the best and I’m not too adventurous. I have an Oolong pallet, but, also, I have an opinion on everything. So sit down, boil the water and have a cup of tea with me.
