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.

Leaf Characteristics: mixed herbs

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

Used two sachets per 14 ounces boiling water, steeped for 5 minutes. Decent tasting tea, but there are tastier varieties of rooibos out there.

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

Nicely balanced chai blend! Pleasing aroma & taste that is not too overpowering. Very soothing and relaxing. I tried it plain first and then added milk, which I think suits the flavours :)

Flavors: Anise, Licorice, Vanilla

drank Pumpkin Spice Chai by Tazo
529 tasting notes

I found this on clearance at Kroger for less than $2 because the box was smushed. I’ll try any chai at that price, especially by a well-known brand, so in the basket it went.

The dry bag smells better than the tea tastes. Lightly pumpkiny with the standard chai spices and licorice. However, once it steeps, it acquires a weird, sharp flavor that I can’t put my finger on. It’s like someone let the cloves get dirty or go bad or something. I’m definitely not a fan. Even with milk and sweetener. The saddest part is that the pumpkin flavor in it is actually well done. Most companies screw that up, but not this time. But the spices are just weird.

While it’s not good, it’s not terrible enough to throw out. In order to use it up, I’ve been blending it half and half with Harney & Sons’ Chai, which saves it. The H & S version is spiced and strong enough to make it actually pretty tasty. Like pumpkin pie made by someone more interested in the spices than the actual pumpkin itself.

Flavors: Cinnamon, Clove, Ginger, Licorice, Pumpkin

drank Calm by Tazo

The dry tea bag smells quite interesting and lively.

I liked the taste. This is definitely not your typical chamomile or mixed floral tea. The licorice, hibiscus & company really made this interesting and different than most other calming teas.

Not super impressed with this one. I think I’ve gotten to the point where Tazo just doesnt surprise or excite me. I’m not quite sure what makes this a Christmas tea release as well…it always comes off muddy for me. The green and oolong never win over in dominance and I end up disappointed. Bah.

drank Cinnamon Chalet by Tazo

On the second day of sipdowns…

This one has been hiding in my collection for a year now and I forgot I even had it. There’s a strong cinnamon and clove combo going on but the apple and cranberries blend in quite nicely. The rooibos base gives it a bit of a baked good flavor so it ends up tasting kind of like spiced apple crisp.

Flavors: Apple, Cinnamon, Clove, Cookie, Cranberry, Oats

drank Lotus by Tazo
11 tasting notes

I really hate to rate things based on nostalgia, but it brings back memories of warming up on the cold nights of music camp many years ago. However, I still have this tea in my cabinet, and it’s just as I remembered. A light green tea flavor that’s a bit more sour and zesty than regular green tea, but very pleasant nonetheless. Makes for a good lotus latte (yes, it’s a thing, but don’t overdo it on the milk or creamer). I haven’t found any other lotus tea I like better, but to be fair, I also haven’t searched very much.

drank Earl Grey by Tazo

I do love bergamot, but the bergamot flavor in this tea is very strong, overpowering the tea. It almost tastes more like an herbal tea than a black! Not “bad,” but for a subtler taste in a similar price range, try Twinings.

Flavors: Bergamot, Citrus Zest, Floral

I think that this is a pretty good tea for the price. Definitely not a life-changing tea or anything, but it is still pleasant. The main problem that I have is that the first steeping can be a little astringent, which is why I actually prefer the second steeping of this tea. It could also be a little smoother in my opinion. Really, the price is what makes it stand out.

All of the flavors shine through in this blend: fresh, grassy green tea, a little lemon sweetness, and a hint of mint in the aftertaste. Pleasant and refreshing! I wish the flavors were a little stronger, that’s all.

A decent green tea with hints of mint and lemongrass. Good with a bit of honey and lemon, especially when one has a cold.

This is called China Green tips (full leaf) and comes in a large tea bag / sachet. Unfortunately it didn’t have any full leafs they were medium sized pieces of broken leaves. That being said it was bigger pieces than any other tea bag I have seen.

It tastes very good and fresh. The best bagged green tea I have ever tasted.

Usually drink tea straight, but I had to add a little bit of honey and sugar for this one to taste good. Quite bitter. Still good
