I really enjoy this tea when I want something rich and sweet.
16 Tasting Notes
Seriously- when you have to spend the whole day craming for finals, some light flowery/fruity tea is just not going to cut it. The richness and powerfull punch this tea gives is something i was in serious need of today. I was able to steep it twice and it was just as good the second time around. It is usually hard for this tea to disapoint me.
I usually stick to the basic teas because I am trying to learn about tea in general and figure you should start with the fundamentals, but I was browsing Adagio’s and I think it was a combination of it being spring and drinking a lot of Black tea lately that I just decided to order some of this. It is pretty fantastic, the cranberry has the perfect amount of power to balance the tea itself. You can’t distinctly taste the citrus flavors because I think they have blended with the cranberry so well that it creates one over-arching flavor note… i def recomend checking this out.
I enjoyed this, which I was kind of surprising. Normally I like a strong flavored tea- so I typically stay away from whites, but I was feeling adventurous and felt like my afternoon should be accompanied by something light. It didn’t have too strong of floral notes whic I can appreciate, just nice and light, all I can really say :)
So. I have a little beef with Tazo. They have their new “whole leaf” thing, this bag of tea is gigantic, its enough for a whole pot of tea. Why waste soo much tea. plus it messes with how long i used to steep a single bag. The cup I’m drinking now is pretty bitter and I was looking forward to a good cuppa for my poor sore throat :(
It’s like a kick in the face of ginger, I was expecting a little more lemon flavor, but added some honey and it sort of balanced the flavors out.
have been drinking this non-stop for two days because I have a head cold. Of what I can taste of it, with the addition of honey, it’s very soothing. I like that it is a really smokey- but plain flavor.
So this was a new experience for me. I now understand the whole ‘chocolate notes’ thing. It was a pretty smokey taste with a chocolatey after taste. I am pretty sure I enjoyed it, haha. I think I will have to try it a couple more times, maybe make the water a little hotter.
pretty average cup this morning. Just letting the bag steep while I sip on the rest, when it comes to teas like this the longer it sits the more bitter, which at times I find really enjoyable.
Normally I am not one for flowery tea, but when it comes to this tea and the addition to lemon, I am pretty fond of it. The tulsi makes it a really smooth cup of tea and drinking it this time of year really makes it feel like spring.
So I work at a Barnes and Noble cafe, stopped by work today to check my schedule. Totally picked up an ice chai, unlike starbucks we don’t add water for our chais, which makes it spicier and tastier. I also add usually one pump of sugar free vanilla syrup to it giving it a nice blend of sweet and spicey. If you have never tried soy milk, I would suggest trying it with an iced chai, pretty fantastic.
like most others, this was the tea that I grew up with. My mother usually purchased it to make sun tea during the summer. As a college student I keep the tea around the house because it is cheap and ‘somewhat’ tasty. I will usually drink any plain tea such as this, probably from the several years spent tagging along to random coney islands at bizarre hours of the night with my ‘hip’ coffee drinking friends.
-i also totally collect the figurines that come in the boxes :)
this is my kick me in the face morning tea. lovin’ it this morning to get me through my morning of classes and meetings. bitter- in a tasty, fantastic way. and yay for fair trade and organic!
So I picked up a cup of zen from starbucks before class this morning, aside from being annoyed as to how much it cost now that it’s “whole leaf.” It is the only tea that I enjoy from Tazo. I really love the lemongrass that it is infuzed with.
This is fantastic. I love the Bergamot in Earl Grey teas. The combination of the richeness in the darjeeling leaves and the citrius notes coming from the bergamot creates a well rounded flavor. A friend of mine loves to use a warmer water temperature and then add some soy milk to it, she finds the flavor to die for. If you are looking for a rich and deep flavor, deffinately try this one out.
I tried this tea when it was infused with dried orange peel, spearmint, and fennel seeds. It was amazing, it was very light and extreamly smooth, almost a silky texture. The infusions were very well balanced making it extremely enjoyable.
