36 Tasting Notes
Found this at TJ Maxx. I used to work at Starbucks and thought I knew all of the Tazo teas, but apparently not! I’d never heard of this one before. It’s kind of weird, but it’s a weird that I like. It’s green tea with rose and cherry flavors. (Ingredients: green tea, rose petals, rose hips, natural flavor, blackberry leaves) The rose is much more pronounced than the cherry, for sure. I don’t see myself finishing this tin, so if anyone wants a couple sachets, let me know!
Flavors: Cherry, Floral, Green, Rose
From the variety pack.
I had weight loss surgery a couple of months ago, which made me appreciate tea so much more since drinking cold beverages is painful now. I had this during Christmas Eve dinner with my family and it was just really nice. I don’t usually like Earl Grey, so I didn’t expect to enjoy this one. I had it with a little sugar and cream and was sad when it was all gone. I didn’t miss the lasagna/fresh bread feast at all (or so I keep telling myself)! Definitely one I’m going to be buying more of!
Flavors: Bergamot, Citrus, Spices
I got a big tea sampler for Christmas a few days ago and thought now, two hours before Christmas is actually over, would be a good time to try this one. I was kind of afraid it would be a little on the Constant Comment-y side, but it’s really good! The spice is mellow and not overpowering, and I added a tiny bit of cream, which really helped round out the black tea end. I probably wouldn’t buy a whole box of this, but it was enjoyable.
This is weird. I don’t know what to think of it. I went the “mate latte” route, as described on the bag, by adding a tiny bit of sugar and cream. It’s currently 6:30 in the morning and I’m at work for overtime. I can’t keep my eyes open, so I figured now was a good time to bust open this bag.
It kind of reminds me of a pu-erh, which I’m not a big fan of. It has that smoky, earthy taste to it, but not fishy like most of the pu-erhs I’ve tried, so it does have that going for it. Maybe I’m just not used to pure, regular yerba mate. The only mate I’ve ever had has always been blended with other flavors, like cocoa, chocolate, or coffee. I’ll keep giving this a try. Don’t want to let a giant bag of tea go to waste.
Flavors: Earth, Leather, Smoke, Wet Wood
Ugh. One day I’ll remember how much I hate caramel/chocolate teas and I’ll stop buying them. I don’t know why I bought this.
It’s not the worst with a little bit of cream and sugar. Kind of like a caramel latte that way. I’m unsure about it. I’ve had way worse “dessert”-flavored teas, though.
Flavors: Caramel, Chocolate
Cecil, love of my life, why are you so perfect? You’re more perfect than Perfect Carlos.
This is such a nice little chai. It’s not astringent at all, and I don’t think I’ve ever had a green-based chai before. It’s nice. I was a little put off by the sprinkles, but I don’t think they make much difference, and the more I think about it, the more I think they belong in every WTNV blend. Except for Steve Carlsberg. He doesn’t deserve nice things. Steve and his stupid, tan Toyota Corolla. Ugh.
Flavors: Spices, Vanilla
