This tea smells fruity, delicious, and a very pink color. Alas, to me it was sour….. I have no idea what I did wrong. All I tasted was the sour citric and nothing else. I am mostly a black tea drinker, which might be why I haven’t found a good herbal tea I enjoy. Maybe I will try mixing it and having it in the summer.

drank Tazo Chai by Tazo
6 tasting notes

My current favorite bag chai. Excellent with either honey or sugar, good mix of spices. Does well with longer (4+min) steeping; I usually set the timer to 4min but sometimes after first pouring water, sometimes let go a bit after timer goes off.

Preparation
200 °F / 93 °C 4 min, 30 sec 12 OZ / 354 ML

This is my absolute favorite tea. I order it at starbucks every time that i go! The floral notes take over and pair well with the sweetness. If i am going to drink a bagged tea this will always be my choice. The smell from a nice warm cup will definitely put a smile on your face.

drank Tazo Chai by Tazo

Used a standard tea packet, a dab of honey, and a tiny bit of half and half. There’s a hint of spice, but overall tastes watered down. Definitely not offensive, but not much to really like either. Might try steeping longer next time.

Preparation
5 min, 15 sec

I was first introduced to this tea at Starbucks by a guy I went on a single date with. Toast to him for this new find!

I can only marvel at how differently we humans can experience the same thing. I enjoyed this tea from the first time I had it. I was at a friend’s house in the late afternoon, and she offered me some tea. I would have loved some Constant Comment, but it was getting toward five, and I didn’t want to drink anything caffeinated. She had this, which fit the bill nicely. Not only was it orangey, it was light and refreshing. I have made sure I have some in my cupboard ever since. Yes, it does taste rather like Tang, but for me that’s a sentimental memory (though a wryly enjoyed one). Best of all, when I want to drink Constant Comment, I can blend a bag of this with a bag of that, and it’s a perfect blend with less caffeine. Doesn’t taste medicinal to me. Don’t know what those haters are carping about. “Chacun a son gout,” as the French would say.

Flavors: Orange, Orange Zest, Sugar, Tangy

drank Wild Sweet Orange by Tazo
56 tasting notes

I was offered a selection of tazo’s tea, i choose this one thinking it would taste like a sweet orange. BUT…. this taste sour!, like a wild not ripped orange would. Growing up in an island my mom use to use this type of citric oranges as a condiment in food to cook meats she would use it instead of lemon or lime, this is what it reminds me of those wild oranges NOT GOOD IN A TEA. I don’t think i would like the even over ice. This is a complete failed.

Flavors: Orange Zest, Sour, Tangy

I would recommend this tea more for blending with another tea (or more) than I would for drinking it by itself. I’m ashamed to admit that to date,I’ve actually avoided drinking ‘naked’ rooibos all by itself. This one has pronounced hibiscus flavor, which I like. There’s a bit of an off note toward the back of my throat, which I (rightly or wrongly) assume to be the rooibos. The combined flavors of hibiscus and rooibos tend to “lend to blend”, so it works for me.

This tea isn’t bad. It can be nice with other foods with oriental flavors. I don’t find this tea to be anything to get excited about, is all. It is green and it is ginger, no more or less.

This tea can be delicious. It laves the chocolate flavor as an aftertaste on the back of your throat. I have to be in the mood for it, however.

This is ok as a cold brew but the hibiscus is a little too strong for my liking. It is drinkable but I won’t be purchasing more

At first I was ambivalent about how I felt with that pronounced deep vanilla bean flavor. It truly was that bourbon vanilla bean variety. I like it more and more each time I have this. One of the first Chai tea bags I like all by itself, not blended with other varieties of Chai.
Quite good!

drank Earl Grey by Tazo
9 tasting notes

This is a strong earl grey. It requires a short steep time. The tea base was nothing to write home about. It made an okay breakfast tea but I wasn’t too disappointed at sip down. If you are fairly new to tea or prefer bagged teas then I would recommend the Twinnings over the Tazo brand.

I used 2 bags of this tea in 24 oz of boiling water with a steep time of 2 minutes.

Flavors: Astringent, Citrus, Earl Grey

Preparation
Boiling 2 min, 0 sec 24 OZ / 709 ML

It’s cloyingly sweet in aroma and that artificial taste when it’s hot. However, I’d imagine this is easily enjoyed iced. I just can’t drink hot sweet teas. They’re like drinking potpourri.

drank China Green Tips by Tazo

I used to buy this tea from Starbucks, and was quite sad when they stopped carrying it in-store. Every now and then, while I’m travelling, I will find a teabag of this type next to the kettle in my hotel room. I hoard them. The loose leaf tea is better, but this tea even tastes good in tea bags. It’s simply great, green tea.

drank Peachy Green by Tazo

Smells nice but I can barely detect the peach flavour so this just ends up tasting like a generic green tea with a hint of something else.

I know I have an unrefined palate and this probably proves it. I drink this hot, unsweetened, and over concentrated and it’s still one of my regular go to bagged tisanes. I had dropped bagged teas altogether until I switched to a job whose breakroom has only a water cooler and a microwave. So now I need bagged teas available from my local grocery store that I can brew up in a microwaved coffee mug and this is one of the few caffeine free options I have.

It’s tart, citrusy, and oddly sweet. It is not subtle. Would I buy this if not for my work situation? No. But it has character which is enough to put it over the generic bags of tea dust that it sits next to at the grocery store.

Flavors: Citrus, Citrus Zest, Hibiscus, Lemon

drank Pumpkin Spice Chai by Tazo

I received a bag of this tea in a care package from a friend. I’m guessing it must have been a special edition autumn tea, because I don’t recall ever seeing it in store. When I opened the tea bag, the scent was an appealing blend of pumpkin and cinnamon. But the tea itself tasted like licorice and cinnamon with a slight kick of black pepper in the aftertaste. Not a fan!

I actually got this as a base for kombucha, and it worked well as one. As a straight chai, I like it less but it’s ok for a bagged chai.

drank Vanilla Caramel Chai by Tazo

Tried this one at work today and I was pleasantly surprised! Although I usually prefer my chai with milk, this one was enjoyable with no additives. The black base is smooth and mild, so I mainly taste the chai spices and vanilla with just a bit of caramel sweetness.
