drank Tazo Chai Tea Concentrate by Tazo
14 tasting notes

Delicious — a must-have for anybody who enjoys Starbucks chai lattes, as this is quite literally the exact product they use. The flavor of the tea and spices are well in evidence, it’s milky and sweet but not too sweet, and there’s just a touch of bite from the black pepper. I couldn’t say how authentic it actually is, but for me this is the ideal chai.

Disgustingly sweet. Sweet was pretty much all I could taste. This really has no right to call itself chai.

Received a box of this as a gift — I normally can’t stand the rooty flavor of rooibos, but this one was quite tolerable with a dollop of honey. It may be too weak for an actual rooibos fan, though.

drank Earl Grey by Bigelow

Not my favorite Earl Grey by far — the amount of bergamot in this one is a little overpowering and sometimes even makes me nauseous. I’d probably still give it a try if there were no better teas around, though.

Loren, sorry to hear you didn’t care for the Earl Grey….if you’d ever like to try another of our flavors, such as our Earl Grey Green or Earl Grey Decaf, please give us a call to request a sample at 1-888-244-3569. This way you can give a new flavor a try before purchasing an entire box.

Thank you! That’s pretty neat. I’ve enjoyed seeing Bigelow around here on Steepster :)

drank Green Tea by Bigelow

It’s tea. That’s about all to be said for this one. It’s not a bad green to accompany food without getting in the way of it, but certainly nothing to write home about. I have to admit it makes me a little nostalgic though, as it reminds me of some of the cheap green teas I enjoyed as a student in Japan. I wouldn’t seek out this particular brand, but I certainly wouldn’t say no if offered a cup.

One of the few blacks I’ll drink without any sweetener. Crisp, appropriately fruity, goes great with dessert. Just plain good.

drank Chinese Oolong by Bigelow
14 tasting notes

This is actually one of my favorite oolongs — I like it even better than expensive organic offerings I’ve tried. It’s hard to describe what I look for in a good oolong flavor, but this one is just about right to me, I guess; it straddles the dividing line between grassy green and robust black very well.

The comfort food of tea. Subtle it is not, but I love it and every so often I have a massive craving. One of the few truly good things the United States has ever done for tea.

Loren, well thanks so much for sharing your love of one of our teas, which has always been a constant comfort to us!

A little off the mark for me. It’s not terrible to the point where I won’t finish the box I bought, but it’s a little too “grassy”, and the mint and rose hip flavors might as well not be included for how little I could actually detect them. I think this tea has convinced me that lemongrass tea is good and green tea is good, but there’s no sense trying to mix them.

Bio

I love tea, period! I’m always open to trying new things and I have favorites among all different varieties, from blacks to herbals and everything in between.

Due to cost and ease-of-use considerations, I mostly drink bagged teas as opposed to loose leaf, and this will be reflected in the types of reviews posted here. If you’re interested in thoughts about which grocery store teas don’t suck then you’re in the right place.

My very favorite teas are black and oolong — black with sugar and no milk, oolong straight — and I also love green. After living in Japan for a while, though, the cheap stuff here just doesn’t compare to the cheap stuff there ;) I’m far enough south to have grown up with sweet tea in the house, too, so basically I have a wide appreciation for things that aren’t necessarily considered “good-quality” tea. I just go by what my tastebuds tell me!
