51
drank Calm by Tazo
698 tasting notes

Amount: 1 teabag
Additives: none
Water: 20 ounces hot spigot water from Starbucks Barista
Steep Time: a little over 5 minutes before first sip, but i left it in for the duration I drank it on the train, approx 30 minutes or more
Served: Hot

Notes: This is a very busy flavor, I was not able to pick out many of the individual flavors. I think that although it is a good tea, it is too overwhelming and i prefer other herbal Tazo flavors over this one. During the resteeping process the string ripped the filterbag where it was attached with glue. This was disappointing as this is supposed to be a higher grade teabag and tea from Tazo.

Smell: Chamomile, Floral, Vegetal, A little mint very busy and strong heady odor
Flavor: Chamomile, Mint
Body: Medium
Aftertaste: tingly, flowers, a non-hot burning even on the front of my tongue
Liquor: Honey yellow-brown

Resteep: I re-steeped for 44 minutes, it remained light bodied, lighter colored, and weaker scented and flavored (same 20 ounce but with filtered boiled water). I do not recommend resteeping this tea.

Preparation
190 °F / 87 °C 8 min or more

Bio

I love caffeine! I prefer tea to coffee. I prefer my flavors to be in your face, not subtle. I plan to use this blog to keep track of the teas I have tried.

I get my daily dose of caffeine from Starbucks (Grande soy no water chai latte).
