Meh. It’s alright. I had it as a latte last night and it was decent. They gave me a bag and I steeped today, just with milk and sugar. Last night I could taste the individual teas, and a peachy undertone, but today, it was more black than anything, which might have been my brewing temp and time of steeping. I might consider getting this in place of the Awake Tea latte that I occasionally get from Starbucks at work (but I tend to get coffee from Starbucks more and tea from Teavana or both from Timmie’s since it is cheaper).

Tabby

I didn’t like this one much, either. I ended up trading it for something else.

Lynne-tea

I found this tea was best luke-warm. Sweet peach notes come out way easier when it’s colder sadly.

Amariel

Yes, I think I noticed the peachy tones more as it cooled.

Bleeeh! This is very astringent to me, slightly bitter, a bit woodsy and I can smell muddled grass. IMO this is just a bad combo of teas…black tea, oolong and green tea? Perhaps it had potential if the tea ratios were different? I even added some cream and sugar to help mask the taste of this and as it did help I still wasn’t able to drink a full cup.

Michelle Butler Hallett

Sorry to hear that. Have you got the full-leaf pyramids of those little fannings bags? I’ve found that Joy needs cooler water, needs to be treated like an oolong or green. Boiling water wrecks it. Dunno if that’s any help?

myspecialtea :)

i totally can relate! i did almost 5 little packets of sugar, cinnamon sugar, and a cup of milke just to douse it…blech!

Picked this up at Starbucks while working on my exam stuff! I really liked it with a little bit of honey. Delicious!

Cofftea

How can they expect it to be steeped properly when it has green, black, and oolong teas that all require different steeping temps/times?

gmathis

OK if I ask what part of the country you’re in? Can’t find at at any of our local SB’s in the Midwest!

Cofftea

@gmathis- I’ve seen them in WI.

laurenpressley

@gmathis- this would have been an NC Starbucks… I think it’s a holiday blend they only have for this short time period… @meganbarnhart, is that right?

@cofftea I haven’t had this in a while, but if I recall, the oolong really stood out… maybe it’s mostly that? And, if you get it at Starbucks, they have the one temperature and set it up to leave the bag in for who knows how long you before you get it, so I’m not sure it matters as much in store (at home, that’s another thing….) :)

Daughter brought this to me over the weekend…a blend of three teas…three is my favorite number. The verdict, it is ok. I only brewed this two minutes and I think that was enough time to being out the three favors. Will I buy it again? No, but it is nice for a surprise:)

gmathis

I’ve had mixed experiences with this one…loved it at first, then drove myself nuts trying to replicate the love; black and greens have such different personalities, they’re a little finicky together.

I bought this tin at Starbucks – Well BOGO, so a tin was $3.50.
It tastes like an amp’d up Jasmine tea to me.
I’ve been drinking it at night, it’s ok, my first Tazo branded tea I’ve tried.
Would I buy it again, no.
Would I give it to a house guest? Sure, enjoy.

My roommate loves this tea and she wanted me to try some because she thought I would fall in deep long-lasting love with it too. In reality, it was a mediocre tea. The tea bag smelled a little bit like an apricot to me and the tea itself didn’t really have any flavor.

I thought the same thing! Flavorless!

I got this at Starbucks today before going on my hike. I thought it would be kinda Christmasy and nice… I could not pick any flavor out of it whatsoever. Like drinking tea flavored water.

Tazo’s organic Chai teabags are really pretty good. Give those a try if you like.

TTB Tea #15:

The problem I have w/ blends containing more than one type of tea isn’t the flavor… it’s the steeping parameters! I decided to steep this more like I would a green oolong since I figure the black tea probably only makes up 1/3 of the tea.

1 bag (2.23g)/6oz

After 3 min the liquor is VERY red. The aroma is heavy like a black tea, yet green… I can’t explain it.

The flavor is heavy like a black tea, yet smooth and sweet. I definitely wouldn’t steep this like a black tea. It’s ok, but I think a person that likes black teas would enjoy it a lot more.

found this little bag sitting in our work tea bag stash, and because my sister is bonkers for it i decided to finally try it. it starts off bitter but finishes nice and sweet, i can see myself stealing a bag or two from her when i visit but other than that i dont think id buy it for myself. not to be a tea snob but i am a bit turned off by it because it is bagged. i dont really get the feel of it being holiday inspired, to me it tastes like an everyday tea but i feel that it may be because i have an uneducated pallet.

Mitch Donaberger

You could… open the bag.

Brewed at 85, for 3 minutes (first steep) and 5 minutes (second steep). Added a bit of agave because it was a bit bitter.

This tea confuses the heck out of me. I think it’s because there’s so much going on. I mean, there’s black, green and oolong teas plus natural flavours. When I opened the tin I got whiffs of a fruity alcohol flavour. I’ve never actually tried darjeeling tea (which I believe is in this) but maybe that was the smell?

Really full flavour and I’ll probably reach for this in the morning when I’m craving a big cup of coffee.

Rating: dear god, I have no idea. I don’t hate it but I’m not over the moon for it.
