drank Awake by Tazo
510 tasting notes

Let’s put this in the right category this time.

This originally mediocre tea is definitively not improved by altitude. It cools too quickly on the steep and I only had cream available on the aircraft and not milk and I’ve heard that tastebuds are funny that high so I don’t know exactly what was wrong but it was all wrong. But it was something to drink so I drank it and it’s resteep because it was a 6+ hour plane ride and I needed to stay hydrated and I was tired of water. C’est la vie.

I think that all of the Tazo filterbags have been reformulated. Pre-Starbucks they were pretty good (for filterbags). I’ve noticed that the newer (post-Starbucks acquisition) white enveloped varieties (in the whitish boxes) are not very good. The whole leaf sachets in the tins are pretty good, though. It’s all very confusing because they use the same names but the compositions of the sachets and the filter bags are not the same.
