A waste of money. This was like drinking water. It didn’t taste like green tea and I wasn’t able to taste “lotus” (not that I know what that tastes like).

A delightfully subtle green tea with the delicate taste and aroma of lotus flower essence. This surprisingly full-flavored yet delicately floral blend is clean and light-bodied, with an aroma reminiscent of freesia.

I really hate to rate things based on nostalgia, but it brings back memories of warming up on the cold nights of music camp many years ago. However, I still have this tea in my cabinet, and it’s just as I remembered. A light green tea flavor that’s a bit more sour and zesty than regular green tea, but very pleasant nonetheless. Makes for a good lotus latte (yes, it’s a thing, but don’t overdo it on the milk or creamer). I haven’t found any other lotus tea I like better, but to be fair, I also haven’t searched very much.
Flavors: Citrus Zest, Earth, Floral, Green
this is the first cup of tazo anything that I’m really enjoying.
I actually wanted to try this before I picked up the pack of tea from the asian market that has a lotus on the box that all of the people who don’t really speak English are giving me the thumbs up sign for.
At least now I have some kind of an idea what I’m in for.
The florality of this tea is nice, but what I’m finding surprising are the buttery notes. So when I try the real lotus tea I’m gonna be looking to see if that is something tazo put in or if it is an actual quality of the lotus in the tea.
