6 Tasting Notes
The spearmint notes in this tea are very prominent. Initially, you’re overwelmed with mint with the first sip. Then, you’re greeted by notes of lemon, which leaves a faint aftertaste in your mouth. Very reminiscent of toothpaste, which I actually really like. This is definitely one of Tazo’s more popular teas, and I can see why. Very refreshing and light. This would be great in the summer, as an iced tea!
This tea smells prominently of raspberry when steeped. It actually tastes like juice to me! The hibiscus and cherry notes are very potent, with a hint of cranberry. I don’t think it tastes medicinal at all. Very zingy, and tangy. It leaves a sweet aftertaste, which I actually really enjoy. Overall, a good tea, that I would definitely buy again! I would imagine that it would make a great iced tea on a hot summer day!
As others have noted, this is a very sweet tea. One could substitute this for dessert haha. The sweetness isn’t overwhelming however, I’ve actually grown to like it. As for the vanilla, it’s definitely very strong. I wouldn’t go as far to say it smells “discount” as other Steepers have said.
It’s particularly good on a cold winter day, a good alternative to hot chocolate.
This is a pretty basic green tea. When I don’t feel like steeping my flavoured teas, this is my go to. I treat this like water, I only drink it to quench a thirst.
When steeped, the tea itself is pretty dark. It’s a tad bitter on it’s own. There are better green teas out there, but I keep going back to this one for 2 reasons:
1. Basic, Dependable
2. Cheap (100 bags for under $5)
As other steepers have mentioned, it’s a very deep red tea when steeped. The lemon scent is very prominent when you smell it, and also when you sip it. It is indeed very citrusy, which I happen to love. It’s also very tangy and tart. I also detect a bit of a ginger, but that may just be me.
Definitely a very comforting tea when you have a cold.
