16 Tasting Notes
Tea like this makes one realize why one drinks tea in the first place. I have tried chai flavors in coffees and latte’s, but they pale in comparison to the flavor that is delivered by this tea. Tazo knows tea and does tea with a passion and to perfection.
I realized after awhile of sitting on this note that Tazo Chai has black pepper in it. When I let this tea sit for too long I can really taste it. Maybe I steeped it too long or the water was too hot. But, phew, it was strong after awhile.
I’m not a big fan at all of coffee named after food. Typically it is too bitter and over flavored and the coffee isn’t as noticeable. So, I was a little leery at trying a tea named after a food. Was I surprised. It is flavorful, aromatic, very satisfying. I am hooked. I still won’t drink coffee with the same name though :-)
I absolutely love this tea. I have only really been a tea drinker for about three months (a youngling, I know), so I need some help from some of the veterans on this site to help me know what is the best tea to drink. I love this new realm of taste that I have been exposed to and look forward to trying as many teas as I am capable of.
This is the first tea that I drank that got me hooked on tea. I bought it at a Starbucks, for more than I should have paid for it, and was instantly surprised. Great taste, good mixture of milk and sugar (though I prefer honey). I loved it. Although I still like a good cup of coffee (preferably Starbucks) I am a tea guy now!
