Tazo Zen Green Tea got me into tea. It’s light and minty, which I like. And I can usually get two steeps* out of the teabag. It’s my go-to workplace tea.
*Is that proper lingo? I have no idea — I’m still new to this whole tea-drinking thing.

A harmonious blend of green tea with lemongrass & spearmint.
Select pan-fired green tea from Zhejiang province in China, artfully combined with lemongrass, spearmint and a hint of lemon essence. Zen’s distinct green tea flavor accented with lemon and mint is impossible to express with words. Best simply to experience its sweet, lingering aftertaste.

I was out today and stopped at a cafe on campus with my girlfriend. Was feeling a green tea so I picked this one up. I’ve had it before, but this was definitely the best cup yet. Steeped for about 3 minutes I believe. Result was a light tea with a hint of mint. I really enjoyed it.. it’s making me want another cup right now. Green tea taste is definitely there, and the mint is not overpowering but rather sweet. I highly recommend it.
I got a grande cup of this from Starbucks this morning. I usually fix it with a bit of sugar, but completely forgot, but it tasted fine. I enjoy the Zen because it’s smooth and mild, without being tasteless. I did steep it a bit too long, only because I was talking to a coworker after I got back from Starbucks. 3-4 minutes is best.
Having no strainer around, I decided to go for the bagged stuff and drank this “Zen” blend.
Unsurprisingly this is a sad, bland cuppa. It is indeed “zen” as one will not experience any strong reaction to this tea but rather be soothed by the taste of verbena.
