135 Tasting Notes

51

So this is the best of the TAZO collection that I have tasted thus far. I really don’t know why I have so lack of a love for this company, but I swear it’s because the teas are just so overpowering and lacking in an actual taste. I tried this tea as per a reccomendation of a fellow steepster and it’s not completely bad, like I said, def one of the best TAZO tea I have tried. This tea was somewhat relaxing and soothing when I drank it. If I go to starbucks again, that is what I will order.

drank St Petersburg by Kusmi Tea
135 tasting notes

Everthing about this tea just makes me think warm and soothing embrace. I really love this black tea from kumsmi. The caramel infused in the tea is the embracing feature and honestly, on a cold day when I like to walk outside or just do my homework, St. Petersburg is one of my go-to’s. I don’t like brewing a full pot of this tea, just the mug. But it is good for more than one steep ( abt. 2-3). So save the bag if you feel like having more later.

drank Pumpkin Chai by DAVIDsTEA
135 tasting notes

Well , for someone not being a big chai fan, I like this tea. And what I like most about it is the fact that it doesn’t have that distinct chai taste that I have come to dislike. When I first tried this tea, it was because it was the tea of the day sample and who can refuse a sample? Well I tried it and wasn’t completely sold. Then my cousin made a recipe from this tea and she said it was amazing. So I decided to buy a 50g bag of the tea just to try out the recipe. I made the cupcakes and they were amazing. Let’s fast forward a few weeks to Halloween day where I tried the chai again, but in drink form. It was Halloween and I was feeling spirited and decided to have a pumpkin chai latte. And it was yummy, been hooked ever since. I’m sad because the fall collection is no longer in stores, but I will for sure buy some online.

drank Cocoa Canela (organic) by DAVIDsTEA
135 tasting notes

So I decided to give this tea another try … and I just don`t know how to feel. I thought if I added more than what was required it would taste more like something, but no. It just disappointed me again. Maybe this just isn’t the tea for me.

I am really trying to get into mate these days to combat my tiredness. So I went to David’s Tea this weekend and decided to get 25 grams to try this tea out. I really don’t know how to feel about this tea, it’s description is that it is very chocolatey and makes great lattes. So I decided to make a latte this morning. Verdict? Meh.. like it wasn’t really terrible in any respect, I guess I just expected a stronger flavour…. I found it way weaker than I thought it would be. I am going to try steeping a larger amount next time I try it, because I like the taste, it just needs to be a little stronger.

drank Earl Grey Tea by Second Cup
135 tasting notes

Its rather a good tea for being out. I really love this tea because I can just leave the bag in and the taste doesn’t get overpowering. I love adding milk into it once in a while, but drinking it black is equally nice. It is really a comforting tea to drink… definitely a keeper on those cold days.

So I am recently really into jasmine tea. A few weeks ago I walked into David’s to try the straight leaf promotion ( straight leaf teas for 1$), and thought there couldn’t be any loss to try jasmine black pearls. I thought that jamsmine + black would = a strong and bitter tea, but I was wrong. This tea is so tasteful and not overpowering whatsoever. It has the soothing and warming taste of black tea and that spark of Jasmine that I just love so much. So for me this tea is really meant to exist.

drank Zen by Tazo
135 tasting notes

Zen… I guess one of the Tazo teas that will get a higher rating. This was an ok green tea with lemongrass in it. It was somewhat soothing, but nowhere near the soothing that I usually like. I might try it again if I go to starbucks… but I am not entirely sure. Maybe it deserves a second chance.

drank Earl Grey by Tazo
135 tasting notes

Meh.. that’s what I think of when this tea is mentioned. It really doesn’t do it for me. I love earl grey, it is one of my favorite teas, but the tazo one is just not the best earl grey I’ve had. I find with this the bag can only steep for a few seconds and needs to be pulled out before it becomes too bitter.

drank Tazo Chai by Tazo
135 tasting notes

It wasn’t the worst tea that I drank, but it will be one of those teas that I try only once and say, it was nice drinking you, but you just aren’t my cup of tea. I like how it initially tasted, but I found that the spices in the tea had a way of lingering just a little to long in my mouth after drinking the tea was done.
