I wanted something bland this morning to hopefully calm my stomach. I don’t remember the last time I had this tea. Not a huge fan. It’s a bit too grassy/vegetal for me. I need to try more unflavored green teas.

I drank a mug of this tea this morning fro Starbucks and it’s the second time I have tried this. The first time i tried it was last summer so it has been a while and wanted to retaste it for reviewing puroses. It tastes similar to gyokuro due to its vegetal notes. It seems to have medium caffeine amount.
Awful. Hands down the worst tea I’ve ever drank. It smelled and tasted FISHY! I’m serious. I wonder if I got a bad batch because this was truly disgusting. I love green tea and have a tried a number of green teas but never has one literally made me spit it out and dump the cup after a couple sips. The first whiff of that fishy smell I thought oh..eww but decided to have a sip against my instincts. It was offensive. Just like drinking aquarium water I imagine. Really cannot for the life of me see how Tazo could make sell a tea this bad. Again, I really have to wonder if I got a bad batch. The tea came in the sampler package that Tazo sells. I would definitely not buy this ever but if I happen to see this at a friends house I’ll ask them to brew it up to see if it smells/tastes like fishwater.
