Another nice tea from the catalog sample. The sweetness goes well with the green tea, but it still gives me an artificial sweetener feel. It’s not bad, and definitely much better than sugar water aka sweet tea, but I probably wouldn’t buy it for myself.
Just had a cup of this while powering through my paper corrections. It’s just like Christmas in a cup! Hands-down the best mood enhancer -
Free sample with catalog! I like this tea, but I don’t love it. It’s fruitiness reminds me of the Mango Ceylon – enough to provide some sweetness but not where I could actually figure out the type of fruit in the cup just by tasting it. Very pleasant to drink, but I probably wouldn’t buy an entire tin.
I got a teabag sample of this tea last Christmas and just had it a few days ago. Wasn’t a very memorable tea though. Dry tea smelled strongly of orange but flavor didn’t come through when steeped.
Super yummy with a layer of foamy soymilk _
Made iced tea with this to copycat the Starbucks iced tea, which uses Zen from Tazo. Tastes just like it! Didn’t add sweetener this time.
Notes: 2 teabags in 12 oz, chilled and poured over ice to make 16 oz iced tea.
I’ve mixed this with Earl Grey for as long as I’ve had it, since my first cup of it wasn’t so pleasing. But, I made a pot of just this tea the other day, and it tastes fine. Maybe the sweetness died down over time, or maybe I expected it now, but either way, not bad.
I microwaved some water to enjoy this tea yesterday. Maybe it was the water, maybe it was me, but I wasn’t getting any ginger flavor at all and the sweet pear smell was just overpowering. I’ve loved this tea when I’ve had it before so I’ll have to try it again another time.
A nice morning pick me up to an otherwise bleh day of classes. Didn’t need caffeine, just comfort. I do love ginger.
Reading David Haberman’s Journey Through the Twelve Forests, eating Punjab Eggplant from Trader Joe’s, and drinking Tazo Chai with milk. Haberman’s right, it’s about the experience! Though mine is probably not very authentic…
