drank Zen by Tazo
16 tasting notes

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 :(

I, too, have a beef w/ them- they took away the only tea I ever drank there cuz they don’t have a whole leaf version. I definitely see your point but there was a time when bags where stinkin wimpy so I guess that’s a good problem to have. You could always take a pocket scale w/ you and weigh one before telling the barista what size and how many bags you want.

Well I got this cup from Starbucks, so it was already bagged. Tazo is trying to hop on the whole-leaf train but they just made the leaves in bigger pieces, lets emphasis ‘pieces’ and just added more of the pieces to the satches. Good thought but I don’t live anywhere close to a tea house or coffee shop that actually has loose leaf tea, they just do the ‘whole leaf’ thing in larger satches…

Yeah, the sachet saves you from having to bring in your own infuser, that’s the only difference between that and loose leaf.
