I went to Boston Pizza and asked for a green tea and this is what I was given. Not a huge fan. Tasted odd to me. A little bitter and very “plant” like. I’ve read that Tazo is bad for not rinsing their tea leaves properly so this is a brand that I tend to shy away from usually. I re-steeped the bag and it was better when weaker but this isn’t a tea I would ever search out and buy.
Flavors: Green, Vegetal
I didn’t purchase a whole box of this tea, I picked it out of a variety. Usually ginger has a distinct aroma and taste, but the flavor in this is fairly light. I could smell it more than I can taste it. I couldn’t sense the “sweet note of pear”, but I did taste a very slight “dirt” aftertaste. Not a great tea for me.
Flavors: Dirt, Ginger
Tazo, I want to like your tea. I really do. This smelled great. Tasted unsweetened the taste of sweet cinnamon didn’t hit once, except for a faint, teasing aftertaste. But I thought I liked the aftertaste.
So I laughed and thought, “Mrs. Tazo, you’re trying to seduce me. Aren’t you?” But I didn’t say that out loud because my family thinks I’m weird enough as it is.
Adding just a half-packet of monkfruit in this made it sweet. In fact, too sweet. I sort of thought I liked it for a while…until I got through half the cup, left it sitting there for a while, and realized that I really did not have any desire to finish this tea.
As someone previously mentioned, a better cinnamon tea is the Hot Cinnamon Spice by Harney and Sons.
I got this in a sampler of teabags from my best friend a year ago. Dry, it smells fruity and sweet. I’m reminded of dark berries, not just generic fruit. Steeped, it tastes like the tea they serve you in Chinese restaurants, or at least the ones I went to as a kid. It’s bitter and would benefit from sugar, but I know sweetening this wouldn’t help the bitterness factor.
It’s okay as a nostalgic tea … but not something I want to drink much. Hooray for having one teabag left?
This one is one of my favorite Tazo’s. It saved me when writing papers, and especially my roommate for all nighters. I love chocolate and rose teas, and the roasted mate give the extra smoky cocoa tasted I like. By no means something to die for, but if it’s available, this is a staple and it makes my world run….I also admit that I am biased to the ingredients.
Flavors: Chocolate, Lemongrass, Malt, Roasted, Roasted Barley, Rose
Why do I even keep bothering with Tazo? I guess in this case, it was free at work, so I grabbed a teabag.
It reminds me of Yogi teas. That same mushy, herbaceous, vaguely medicinal experience, you know? I even taste dirt! Yuck. I blame the star anise and licorice. What a tragic waste of perfectly good cinnamon.
Work has been totally miserable today. I hate having to work Sundays in general, but today has been its own hellish kind of crazy. At least it’s nearly over!
Flavors: Anise, Cinnamon, Dirt, Herbaceous
I haven’t had tea all day. Been waiting for a cuppa for awhile… finally just broke down and pour cold water on this tea bag. It’s ….meh. I guess I didn’t know what to expect from lotus flavor, except maybe a floral sensation. Not getting that though. It’s like I’m drinking a tea that accidentally had some Chinese dish spilled into it.
Wow, this really does smell like peach cobbler! I’m actually pretty surprised. I can almost imagine my cup being filled with the sweet, syrupy peach filling. The taste is bitter as other notes have suggested, but I can also taste the sweet peach flavor and smell the cinnamon and spice.
I added cream but it’s not mixing as well as I would have liked. Also, the honey is overwhelming the flavors in the tea so next time I may try a different sweetener. Overall, this is an enjoyable cup. Quite the dessert experience.
Flavors: Bitter, Cinnamon, Peach, Spices, Sweet, Tannic
Once upon a time, I used to rather like this tea. I think that’s because I sweetened it, because I really wasn’t keen on the bag I brewed up yesterday, until I added sugar. Then, it was delicious – all minty, fresh, and sweet. I’ll probably get through the remaining few bags of this that way (maybe brewing some up to make sweetened iced tea once it finally warms up???)
Still have a whole bunch of this from last summer when I was on a kick of trying to make passion tea lemonade at home. Down to maybe 7 tea bags of the original 16, so getting there.
I don’t drink this hot often, though it is rather nice. Getting a raspberry/blackberry vibe here. There’s cinnamon, but not as intense as in Teavana’s Passion Tango. Supportive role from the lemongrass as well. Quite heavy on the hibiscus, particularly as it cools.
Flavors: Blackberry, Cinnamon, Fruity, Hibiscus, Lemongrass, Raspberry
