Just a standard green tea. Nothing too special.

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.

Decaffinated teas usually reflect that in their taste- it’s to this tea’s credit that it doesn’t taste quite as decaffinated as some others. Yes, I can still taste that it’s decaffinated, but not as much as most others. That said, this green tea has lotus scenting, and is pretty darn well done for a teabag. The lotus notes aren’t too strong, so I can still taste the green tea, as well as a soft lotus flavor. If Tazo made this in a full-throttle version I’d definitely buy it. In it’s current form, it’s drinkable, which is far more than I say about most decaf teas.
Lotus is a great decaf green tea. Normally I would go for Tazo’s Zen, but having to drink decaf lately has left me looking for other options. Lotus is more flowery than Zen, but it still packs a nice little punch.
I think if you let it steep awhile it really brings out the flavor of this tea. I usually just leave the teabag in the mug, and by the time I’m finished it’s a little stronger, especially the last few sips.
