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.

Vegetal, but not bad. Crisp and refreshing.

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
4 tasting notes

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 was offered this tea this morning and enjoyed it. Basically your standard chai, but very good for a tea bag and stuff.

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
415 tasting notes

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!

Flavors: Cinnamon, Licorice

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
415 tasting notes

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.

drank Egyptian Ruby by Tazo

It has just the right amount of fruity taste. I was blown away by the taste, I had my doubts at first, it does better to do the 5 minute steeping, and the mint is very light and pleasant.

Flavors: Fruity, Hibiscus, Mint, Pineapple

Steepings 1 steep in 8oz of 180 degree water.

Tart, citrus upfront with strong hibiscus. Creamy orange peel with a slight twinge of vanilla follows. Finishes with nutty licorice. Clean aftertaste of tart cranberries and sweet cherries. Pretty, pretty good.

I received this in my Christmas stocking. It came in a nice tin. Joy, what a promising name! I understand this is a holiday blend. I’m not sure what I expected, but this tea was quite disappointing. Nothing wrong with it really. It was just nothing to write home about. There didn’t seem anything Christmasy about it. It seemed like another average black tea. I guess I shouldn’t be too surprised. I have yet to meet a Tazo tea that I would rate “gotta have it”. I wouldn’t make an effort to seek this one out when there are so many other black teas I prefer.

Tazo Zen is a decent enough green tea. Flavours of mint and lemon blend nicely however it does become a bit astringent if over-steeped. It is quite soothing if prepared properly.

Flavors: Astringent, Green, Lemon, Mint

Preparation

drank Awake English Breakfast by Tazo
58 tasting notes

Drank this, as usual, without cream and sugar. It’s much thinner and zippier than some other English breakfast teas I’ve tried recently (e.g., Twinings and Bigelow), with a bright, bitter herbal finish. To me it tastes light and insubstantial; maybe I was hoping for something mellower. Still the flavor is at least interesting, so I’d recommend with reservations (try a sample if you can!)

Flavors: Bitter, Herbs, Malt

Preparation
5 min, 45 sec
