5 Tasting Notes

A wonderful tea. Has a satisfying flavor that lingers on your tongue. It’s a mellow and deep flavor lightly smoky but not like a campfire. I do 2 minutes instead of the recommended 3 so it doesn’t become bitter. I’ve noticed that Tazo teas have the tendency to become very bitter if steeped for the recommended time.

Tastes sweet and medium spicy. Goes well with a little bit of sugar and low fat milk.

This tea is an excellent alternative to a traditionally prepared Chai. The recommended time is between 3-5 minutes as per the package, but I prefer it around 3 minutes to avoid the extra caffeine.

This tea has a very light liquor and delicate aroma. The taste is just the same as the smell, light and sweet with a pleasant, lingering vegetal aftertaste. This tea is always lighter in color than I expect so I end up adding a bit of extra time and it doesn’t affect the bitterness.

This tea has an odd flavor that is kind of artificial.

An all around good cup of tea. I’d consider this one of my daily drivers. The smell has an excellent, light and sweet aroma. The taste is a medium to full bodied as far as green teas go. Vegetal and bold.

I typically steep this twice before tossing and the second steep is a lighter version of the first. Much more medium bodied than full with the same vegetal flavor. A nice all around tea and it’s not very expensive (considering other teas at Teavana).
