I was really smooth and dumped nearly a full timolino of good jasmine green tea all over my desk at work (luckily just on the desk and no important papers or electronics). I didn’t pack any other green tea today but I seriously need a boost today so I picked up a bag of this at the caf at work. This stuff is pretty decent-better than the Tim Horton’s green tea (and cheaper since I just bought tea bag and not a cup of hot water as well (although I still hate paying over $1 for one tea bag!)). This’ll be my new go-to tea if I ever forget my green tea at home.

Great tea! A little on the sour side, but it has complex flavors that make for a great anytime tea!

For some reason, I really wanted ginger today… So I made a cup of this and had it with my steamed veggie dumplings. It was a match made in heaven! I get smooth green tea, a bite of ginger, lemongrass, pear, and steamed vegetables. Not bad at all!

drank Wild Sweet Orange by Tazo

Cup #2 of tea at work. The pickings for herbal teas are slim. I knew reading the ingredients on the bag this tea wasn’t going to be great but my goodness this was bad. When I took the bag out of the package it smelled like vitamin c chewables. The taste was like orange drink (you know- the kind made with crystals?) heated up in a mug. I took a couple sips and dumped it down the sink. Yuck.

Flavors: Artificial, Orange

drank Cocoa Mint Maté by Tazo
19 tasting notes

Mate is just one of those flavors I have a hard time getting behind, so I was definitely okay with not being able to taste it in this cup.

The cocoa is more of a scent than a present flavor, but the licorice root is just enough to make it deceptively sweet, so if you close your eyes you can definitely imagine the flavor. The blend of peppermint and spearmint adds an element of depth without being overpowering.

All the pick me up of mate without the mate taste. Count me in!

drank Zen by Tazo
6 tasting notes

Due to some recent financial issues, I’ve decided to drink my way through my current tea stash before buying any more. Today for my before-work tea, I found two lonely Zen tea bags at the bottom of my tea drawer. It had been awhile since I’d drank it. Zen has never been a favourite, but I didn’t remember disliking it either. I decided to do it latte style. I carefully steeped two bags according to my tea steeping app in roughly 3/4th cup of water, and warmed a bit of soy milk on the stove. I then threw the soymilk in my Vitamix for about a minute on high, producing a lovely foam.
I then mixed and sweetened with agave. (I’ve been doing this all week with various types of tea with great success)

Maybe my tastes have changed. Maybe my frequent trips to DavidsTea has put me into a new tea bracket. Or maybe when I wasn’t looking lemony cleaner fell into my mug.

I drank it, it wasn’t horrible. But, I’m definitely glad those were my last two bags.
(Though its quite likely I’ll find more because my one year old recently went through a phase of opening the tea draw and carrying off tea bags)

I find it odd that this does not taste at all of green tea.

Flavors: Lemongrass, Spearmint

Sooo I must just not like apricots that much because I was thinking I’d like this one more for the vanilla factor but it really mainly just tasted like apricots with a creamy flavor. Not a bad tea, but not my favorite. D:
Thanks for the sample though, The Cookie Lady!

Flavors: Apricot, Creamy

Kittenna

Vanilla apricot sounds like a yummy custom blend in my future…

Ost

I still have one more tea bag left if you are interested. Maybe we can swap if you want or something? Hit me up if you are interested!

I completely stayed away from chai teas when I first started drinking tea regularly, and incorrectly assumed that I would never like them. I’m visiting family, and they offered this tea to me. It’s pretty good for a bagged tea…decent black tea strength, with nice chai spices. It doesn’t overwhelm you with either…or maybe I’ve just become accustomed to strong Assam teas, haha. I had been thinking about giving chai another shot, and this made me want to look for some good ones. I’ll try some Masala chais, some green chais and maybe a rooibos chai next. I’ve finally realized never to say I don’t like a whole huge group of teas, because I’ll most likely change my mind and love them later. :P

I remember having a Twinings Darjeeling when I was about 20…. I thought I hated darjeeling because of this one tea. lol Silly me. :)

Mike

Hahaha, yeah…I’m definitely not closing off my tea options. I’ve gone from sticking to a 2-3 kinds of tea to drinking over 50 different kinds of tea, and growing every day. Love it! :)

DeliriumsFrogs

It’s so great, isn’t it? I never knew there were all these teas out there to try (or that, like wine, the same leaf can taste drastically different when cultivated in a different location!)… I still have so much to learn! :D

Mike

Me too, I have a lot to learn! It’s such a fun learning process though! I just have to try to make sure that I take a break from buying teas every once in a while…my cupboard is getting too full! :P

drank Green Ginger by Tazo

Quite a spicy one!
When I brewed it for the first time, it tickled my nose.

To be honest, the best thing you can do with this is add a bit of sugar, pop it in some popsicle makers, let it freeze and you got a good, cold summer snack!

When brewed, though, it was a bit too spicy for my tastes. I could barely taste the green tea.

A bit expensive for a tea to make popsicles with, but you could try to replicate the mixture and make a large batch. (luckily, I got it as a gift.)

I am sometimes a mystery to myself? Why, with the tease of spring just around the corner, am I drinking lots of autumnal teas? No idea.
Carry on.

You know, I was skeptical, but I like this. I wondered if I hadn’t built it up in annoyance, but I think its very nice. The squash and the spices blend together very creamily, and its warming without making my tastebuds uncomfortable. Yes, a goodly tea.

At the boyfriends today, trying to play Don’t Starve Together, which is proving a challenge. But I have tea from his well stocked tea bar!
This is actually really good. Creamy, lush feeling. I’m liking it. When I’m allowed to buy teas again, then I might get some of this.
As it stands, though, I need to be on a buying hiatus for a while, in any case.

Extreme black pepper flavor. It’s unpleasant at first but I grew to enjoy it. Certainly not my favorite, but a bright, peppery cuppa has its place.

drank Awake English Breakfast by Tazo

This smells simply like strong, black tea. From what I can tell, the tea leaves are small and broken in the bag, but now powdery. It reminds me of the Lipton I normally use to make sweet iced tea.

I got distracted (again!) and let the tea steep too long but it’s still good. It has a slight artificial taste after adding honey and cream, but I think it may be due to over-steeping. It’s even good after cooling off.

This tea is amazing plain, with sugar, or sugar and milk. I love to make a 16 oz cup using two tea bags. Followed by two tablespoons of pure sugar and then filling the rest of the cup with Vitamin D milk and stirring till all sugar is dissolved. So amazing to drink in the morning and such a better alternative to coffee. Chi tea really is a calming yet awakening experience.

Flavors: Cardamon, Cinnamon, Ginger

So sad this is no longer available at Starbucks. This has been my go to tea latte for years!! And of course being a tea newb back then it never occurred to me that instead of paying $4+ per drink, to just buy the tin and make them myself. The fact that Teavana took over Starbucks recently and swapped out the Tazo tea was the ‘kick in the butt’ I needed to purchase the tin. To be honest I have 3 tins of this at home… Whoops. It was hard to come by so I wanted to stock up!

I’m happy I stocked up as I love this tea! I tried it as just a straight plain tea tonight and it was still delicious (even though I’m used to the latte version). Its got sort of an apple=y taste. Not just straight vanilla but delicious none the less and will always be a favourite. Going to try it as a home made latte next time :)

It tastes rather sweet and most of all like … Vanilla Rooibos Parfait: one of a kind!

Flavors: Apple, Rooibos, Vanilla
