drank Berryblossom White by Tazo
411 tasting notes

I found the teas in the local caffeteria!

Today has been a tough day. Last night I went to World Cup of Tea and met the fabulous Lena in person – we had a tea swap and drank some yummy teas at the store. After a great time, I went back to my hotel (I’m traveling for some business training) with all these amazing smelling teas.

And I won’t let myself try them, because I don’t have any spoons, a decent mug, or a way to get hot water where I have a clue about the temperature. (The stuff the little coffee maker spits out is kinda scary looking). It’s been acceptable for the orange Tazo, but I don’t want to waste all this nice tea!

So close, and yet so very, very far!!!

On lunch break today however, I noticed that they had tea at the on-site caffeteria! Tazo teas. How could I have not seen this before??? I decided to try one, and went with Berryblossom White. It’s not bad. Nothing to write home about, but not bad. I think I oversteeped a little, because it was a little bitter. Got two steeps out of it though. Can’t taste the individual fruits, but I get a sense of fruit, and tea. It’s pretty much right in the middle of the meh scale.

But I can’t say enough how happy I am that there’s some better tea around!

Bio

I’ve got a lot of interests: sushi, science fiction/fantasy, medieval recreation, cooking (specifically medieval cooking), reading, British science fiction (Doctor Who!), hand sewing and now TEA!!

My favorites tend to be oolongs and flavored black teas. I like highly flavored teas more than delicate ones. Rooibos tends to taste like dirt to me, and hibiscus is very sour to my palate. But I’m always up to try all sorts of things, and will often find things that I really like which I thought I’d hate.
