A review of Calm Herbal Infusion by Tazo Tea

Liquor Color: soft amber
Leaf Characteristics:

  1. Steepings

1st Steeping:
Water temperature: 190 Fahrenheit
Time: 5 minutes

I volunteered for The Massachusetts Women Conference and obtained these tea samples from them. I had a cup of this herbal infusion while waiting in the volunteer room and decided to take some home. I have so many teas to review; there was no need for my taking them. Yet I did. A thief I am. Anyhow, I fixed for myself a lovely cup of this Calm tea this morning and not mid day mind you.

I seem always calm, and yet the world around me is chaotic since it is not my home; my life is not my own it feels like. The other reason for being attracted to this tea is because I had purchased a bottle of Tazo Herbal Infusion but it was infused with spearmint and peppermint. So seeing this herbal infusion strikes a cord of familiarity and the tea is quite nice.

I take one tea bag and put in my cup and pour in the hot water leaving it to steep for a good five minutes and the aroma fills the air immediately with hints of chamomile, hibiscus and rose petals. It is a lovely light amber (yellow base) and when I sip and sip this tea it is the Chamomile that is most prevalent and with more sipping there is the hints for other herbs like lemongrass but not too strong and hints of rose in the fragrant as well.

This is probably the most soothing tea that I have had and I can just keep drinking it all day long; similarly I did while waiting in the volunteer room at the conference after having found this tea. I had been there earlier in the morning and had not notice that there was tea; well I did not think to look for tea. But in the afternoon while in the same room I look closely at the table and saw the tea sampler box and ventured over to finding (Tazo teas, Tetley Teas and Lipton tea bags) I chose this herbal infusion of Calm tea and fixed myself a cup of this tea and taking some of the tea bags with me.

I am happy to say I have had another wonderful cup of tea by Tazo Tea. Thank you to the conference staff for having such good teas available.

ehhh. blah. i think it’s interesting that they add turmeric for color, but mass market appeal is appealing, and turmeric is a pretty color, so, fine. i get it. Was at a meeting, this was the best tea choice to have with the conference room lukewarm water. eh.

I think it’s the luke warm water’s fault. I don’t drink herbals, but my best friend asked me if I wanted tea from a friend’s stash and handed me a cup of this. I let it steep endlessly and it was still good. I doubt it was the boiling water I would normally use, but it definitely wasn’t luke warm.

MelissaPicoli

probably true. i’m sure I will drink it again many times since it is so readily available!

Cofftea

Or steal a bag to take home and make it w/ boiling water:)

MelissaPicoli

hee. hee. already did. _

This was another tea in my “xmas-tea-giftbasket-of-meh.” I guess that I had really really low expectations since I’m not a fan of chamomile since having it straight-up, and I really like my spearmint plain. Well, it wasn’t as “blarg” as I’d feared. AmazonV described this as busy flavor-wise and I think that she nailed it. I’ll probably keep this one and go through the box since it’s an okay herbal, but when it’s over I will not be buying more. M

This is the proverbial “not my cup of tea.”

Now, I should have know better, because there are very few chamomile teas I really like. But, I’m at this training facility today, and their tea selection is very limited. So I thought I’d give it a go.

I should have skipped it. I thought the flavors were kind of.. meh. And I thought it smelled bad. I feel like I’m pointing fingers and singing like a grade schooler "Nya, nya, nya-nya nay – you smell bad!’ but I really don’t have any other descriptions. It was just icky. My mouth + Calm = not happy.

I think if you like chamomile, this might be more for you.

This tea isn’t earth-shattering, but it’s a staple in my cabinet and my opinion of it is still good. It’s gotten me through many a headache, and the smell of it is soothing to me because of that. I honestly think it’s a good chamomile blend, because the chamomile mixes with the other flavors rather than covering it like other blends I’ve had. The mint, lemongrass, and rose are present without being overwhelming, and the other ingredients aren’t too obvious to me but they make it a smooth cup. I might rebuy this when it’s gone, which I don’t think I can say with any of the other herbals I started out with.

This one scared me. When I bought it I thougt “Chamomile is great!” Then when I opened the box it was very reminiscent of licorice twist by DT, with which I had a run in with earlier. . . But once brewed it wasn’t half bad, very chamomile. And it definitely made me want to go to bed!
I find you have to extend the steep time with Tazo full leaf though.

One of my coworkers has been out of town, and her hotel had tea in the rooms. She pocketed them and left them on my desk at work, bless her. I love having enablers in my life. I brought these couple of bags home to try before bed tonight.

It’s minty chamomile. Or, rather, chamomiley mint. Mint is the first big flavor that I got from this, then followed by chamomile. There’s a hint of fruity, but you kinda have to be searching for it. Smooth, and fairly light. But the more I drink, the more the mint stands out.

Not too bad, but not something I’d purchase, either. I’m just happy to see that hotels are starting to provide more than coffee in the rooms for their guests.

Ricky

Conquering one tazo at a time? You drank a lot of tea today!

TeaEqualsBliss

Ricky

Haha, I didn’t notice till yesterday when I saw all your tazo! Do you resteep cause that’s like what 14 cups if you do!??!

TeaEqualsBliss

Only resteep if something is really strong or if I am curious. I like a variety so I switch often

Upon opening the bag, I oddly smell spearmint – not chamomile – first thing. Hmmm, how strange. The ingredients on the package only list chamomile, rose petals, and “soothing herbs.” As their website reveals, one of those herbs is spearmint leaves. Mystery solved (except for why the spearmint smells so strongly!) The taste of “Calm” involves a lot of flavors. As per the website, the herbs are quite a few things, all of which play their part in the taste of this blend. Thankfully, the chamomile presents its flavor above all the others – very good. The spearmint takes a back seat and the lemongrass laces the edges. Floating through the middle, somewhere, are subtle notes of rose and lavender, just barely present.

My main problem with this blend – everything tastes a bit flat, like the ingredients are old or something of that nature.

Tazo could have done far, far worse than this blend, and I quite like that they seem to have spent the effort to craft it well. On my personal enjoyment scale, I would rate it a 76/100.

gmathis

Yeah, this one doesn’t rate more than a “not bad” with me, but it’s a good “not bad,” if that makes sense.

So I went laser tagging with my work friends last night, the first time I played since those elementary school birthday parties from a million years ago. :) I had tons of fun, but now my throat hurts from screaming too much. DX; So I thought I’d give this tea a go on my break.

I didn’t realize this had hibiscus so I oversteeped it. It’s a really dark color now and I can’t really taste the chamomile anymore. It’s still fairly sweet though naturally, the cool mint feels good on my throat. I agree with others who said this was a bit on the busy side. I kinda just wanted the chamomile. Overall it’s okay, but I couldn’t be bothered to bring a tin home even though it’d be free.
