drank Vanilla Rooibos Parfait by Tazo
48 tasting notes

I don’t normally like rooibos teas. So according to me the rating I am giving this tea is good for a rooibos tea. I liked this tea but the vanilla was overpowering. Once I got past the vanilla it was enjoyable, smooth, and relaxing. I expected a fanning grade tea but got a better grade tea than most Taza teas that I’ve tried. Therefore the tea bags were larger. Tossed out the tea bag and then realized I should have tried for a second steeping.

Starbucks just switched to full leaf bags. Not knowing how it’s made, could it have been sweetend w/ vanilla syrup adding to the extra vanilla flavor? Also just curious as to what made you choose this one since you don’t care for rooibos.

Funny you mention Starbucks. That’s where I got this at. The reason I got a rooibos tea is because I don’t like most of Tazo’s other teas. It was really the only tea appealing to me at the moment out of the tea selection. I don’t dislike rooibos (unless it’s a plain rooibos), it just wouldn’t normally be my first choice. There wasn’t any extra vanilla added to it.
What’s your take on Starbucks doing full leaf bag tea?

I think it’s great that Tazo finally joined the rest of the world doing full leaf tea in Sachets, though slightly upset it wasn’t us ;-).

It’s not funny, cuz that’s the only place I know where you can get a tazo VR latte. What woulda been funny is if my assumption would have been wrong. I love the idea- I just wish they’d put my favorite (green ginger) in sashets.
