From Tazo

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.

Next in line from mom’s tea cabinet. I’ve had this one before, it’s a decent, solid green tea blend. I’m normally not a huge fan of blends, but this one is OK. Hints of grass and wet straw almost overwhelm the green tea flavor, but it’s still a good mix. Nice and tasty.

And, as the name intends, it is certainly quite soothing. Zen indeed.

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.

Zingy, a feeling of light pressure against gum line of top front teeth, green in middle of tongue which in the finish rolls into the back of the tongue and meets the throat with a sweet green taste… Sort of like the four leaf greens or clover greens we ate as kids when out walking.

Yellow around the top half of the mouth as a point longer into the finish.

It has a general sweetness when you sip and it’s a little cooler. The sweet green again wraps around the back of the tongue but also the rear portion of the sides of it, more forward than the finish a bit.

The lemongrass is certainly noticeable and puts that pleasantly unbalanced feel to the taste

Mildly astringent.

It’s pretty good for an off the shelf bag tea. Something I’d pick if that was the best of the options in the supermarket sort of good. Not something I’d want in my collection if I was able to have one again right now.

A pretty good supermarket tea.

Tazo Zen is a decent enough green tea. Flavours of mint and lemon blend nicely however it does become a bit astringent if over-steeped. It is quite soothing if prepared properly.

All of the flavors shine through in this blend: fresh, grassy green tea, a little lemon sweetness, and a hint of mint in the aftertaste. Pleasant and refreshing! I wish the flavors were a little stronger, that’s all.

Pre-Taste – It’s vapor gives a cooling sensation when inhaled. A very mellow scent. Minty, with a little bit of herbs. Light brown, dark yellow, however you look at it. Looks like a standard green tea.

Taste – When you take a sip the first noticed flavor is a medium strength mint. It begins to fade away after you swallow and fades into a light green tea flavor. The flavor is very smooth.

Mood – With a small amount of caffeine, and the warmth in your stomach after drinking it, you are left feeling calm, and focused. It’s no wonder it’s called Zen.

Overall I enjoyed it, but I would not consider it a go-to tea.

So for the last three days I keep forgetting to bring tea to work. So now I am stuck with work tea today. That is the tea in the drawer of the staff room at work, that people just bring in because they don’t want it. Most of it was herbal blends, this was one of the few that had actual tea in it so that is what I grabbed. We also have some keurig tea at work. But the keurig has never been cleaned, and is mostly used for coffee, I don’t think I can stomach tea laced with coffee, this morning anyway.

This was is ok. It is quite light, bland would be a good word. There are light hints of spearmint, a bit of lemon verbena type flavour. The green tea is very light but also slightly atringent in the aftertaste.

I wasn’t expecting much from this one due to the fact it is an old bagged tea from the work cupboard, but also. Being a blend called Zen, I don’t think it is supposed to pack any type of punch.

It will do for now.

I have all this delicious tea at home just waiting for me….. :(

My brother just loves his Tazo teas. I don’t get it. None of them has ever really been good for me. Other people’s mileage may vary.

I liked the sound of the blend for this tea and was drawn to it for that reason. I found the description to be quite tasty, a little excited about the prospect of a lemony-minty green tea blend.

The dry bag has a very spearminty scent, and it held a lot of good hope for me. The steeped scent is a bit subtle though it does retain those spearmint overtones. That’s about it though, didn’t notice too much of the other flavors, except maybe a little bit of green tea.

The taste is kind of subtle (as the scent) if not a bit bland. It’s definitely cool like its minty aspects, but that’s mostly what I’m tasting. I like the coolness of it, very refreshing, but I do believe it is a bit lacking overall. The aftertaste remains cool as well. One thing I noticed is that this tea can be slightly bitter at times, but I don’t think it’s bad enough to keep me away from drinking it again.

Overall, the flavor is a little bland, minty and earthy, with a refreshing cool feeling left to the mouth, but it does lack. The scent is not overpowering, and while it could be stronger, is nice. Could be improved, but definitely could be worse. Would recommend for someone who likes mint.
