If I had a tea shop in Ba Sing Se, I would name it after this tea, the Jasmine Dragon. The best jasmine tea I’ve ever had. Ever so slightly soapy, the floral notes remain pleasant, and entirely aromatic.

One of my guilty pleasures for some reason I actually love this citrusy fruitful tea. Pretty good for a bagged tea. One of the few teas I use sugar in.

This tea is super sour, and it impossible to sweeten effectively. It also has an overwhelming scent. No matter how mellow I brew it, this tea is not good as a stand-alone drink. It would probably do better as a mix-in for punch.

Flavors: Astringent, Citrus, Lemongrass, Orange, Sour

I just tried the mango iteration of this tea. Fantastic, albeit over sweet. Perfect for a fall day !

This tea packs a strong punch, and is great for waking up in the mornings. It tastes similar to a mimosa with its bold orange, passionfruit, rose, and hibiscus flavors. Just a warning, it is very sour, and does not take well with sweetener.

This one was surprising. I picked up a tin of this tea from the dented can store for $.99, since the tin was slightly (although not badly) dented, and I definitely scored.

I would not have expected this from a mass market consumer brand like Tazo, but this take on an earl grey was actually actually quite pleasing. The overall notes of orange, vanilla and cream create an almost dreamsicle like flavor without the sweetness. It is quite delicious. Admittedly, the flavors are somewhat unbalanced, the bergamot is a touch too strong and I was missing some of the boldness I would have expected from a brew with black tea as its base, but overall I was pleased.

This would probably make a nice tea latte, if I try it, you will be the first to know.

Flavors: Bergamot, Cream, Vanilla

Found a pre-brewed concentrate at a store on clearance so decided to try. Mixed about 60/40% concentrate and milk (cold). Definitely tasted the chai, that was nice, but after a few sips, I started to feel the pepper. Not enough spiciness to stop drinking, just enough to notice, but more than I’d consider enjoyable. (Yes, I know, I’m a wimp when it comes to spices). Good tea for a grab-and-go option, but better chais exist if time is available.

Flavors: Cardamon, Cinnamon, Peppercorn

Iced

I’ve rediscovered my love for tea recently and decided to give this one a try. On first sip you taste the earthiness of the black tea, followed by the aroma of peach and apple, and finished with a light taste of sweet cinnamon. It’s one that I recommend for new tea drinkers as it’s not extremely astringent and it’s easy on the taste buds. 4 cups out of 5 because it may be more enjoyable with a touch of sugar or honey.

Flavors: Apple, Cinnamon, Earth, Peach

It’s been a bit of a sipdown Saturday and this is included. Saying goodbye to this teabag that definitely tastes like a peach cobbler if you drowned a peach cobbler in a bitter black tea and cinnamon. Such potential lost.

Super Starling!

I had high hopes for this one, too. :(

It did smell quite good.

Review for the bagged version of this

Surprisingly, the primary flavour here is a really aromatic and flavourful white tea.Not vegetal like bai mu dan, but distinctly a white tea. A little bit fruity, I think that might be the sprinkle of darjeeling they added in. The fruit flavour is perfect—-present but not tart or overpowering. Slight natural sweetness of huckleberries, blueberries. Distinctly those two. No artificial generic berry flavour, no citric acid, no stevia or hibiscus. Just the perfect lightly flavoured white tea. I brewed two pots of iced tea (550 mL per pitcher) and the flavour really held up. This is a great iced tea.

Flavors: Berry, Blueberry, Fruity

Preparation
Iced 8 min or more

Even as a latte this tastes like minerals and musty root (licorice or chicory?). Not much vanilla, and I’m not loving this rooibos either.

drank Vanilla Rooibos by Tazo
1811 tasting notes

I normally do not brew teas in boiling water, but I thought this might be tasty brewed really hot. This is a sachet with quite a lot of leaf in it (3g?), so it produces a flavourful tea that can be re-steeped multiple times.

It is weird that this smells like apple and cinnamon rooibos. Flavour wise there is some apple, something dusty and sickly sweet (chicory? licorice root? it has a metallic quality that is horrible here), some vanilla, Lots of rooibos. I was really hoping for strong vanilla bean + rooibos, not a fruity spiced blend.

Flavors: Apple, Cinnamon, Creamy, Dust, Metallic, Rooibos, Smooth, Spices, Vanilla

Preparation
Boiling 6 min, 45 sec 19 OZ / 550 ML

Interesting chamomile blend that has some soothing mint and lemongrass in the background. The blackberry leaves aren’t bad at all, neither vegetal, nor sickly sweet. The herbs are well balanced, although chamomile and mint are the main flavours.

This tea seemed really good in the description from the website I bought it from, but unfortunately, mixing green and black teas together is not a really good idea. The temperature that you need to steep them at is very different, and so is the steeping time, resulting in a cup that is either too weak, or burnt. Also, the peachy undertones really don’t help at all here, as I find them to be very artificial. The smell is great though!

Flavors: Bitter, Fruity, Peach

I had this as after a night away from the kids. My in-laws spent the night with our kids and we spent the night at a mineral spa. This tea was delicious, but only because I got to drink it while it was hot, and didn’t have to get up or stop a fight even once!
In reality, it was just ok. A little bitter and tannic (if that is the correct word). I guess it’s alright for a bagged tea.

Yay for the little getaway. Sounds luscious!
