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

drank Vanilla Rooibos by Tazo

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

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.

Flavors: Dry Grass, Floral, Herbs, Lemongrass, Mint

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!

I have a cold so I’m avoiding milk for a few days, therefore, green tea.

This is an ok bagged green tea for work when dealing with whole leaves and exact water temperature is impractical.

Happily for me, the spearmint is not a dominant flavor but just hangs out in the back, giving a light cooling feeling. The lemongrass is minimal, but noticeable if looked for. It does mute that “boiled hay” taste grocery store, bagged greens tends to have.

Adding honey really helped too.

Flavors: Grass, Hot hay, Lemongrass

This is a very red tea, almost like red wine in color. Reminds me of sweet and sour sauce for dipping chicken nuggets into, both in color and flavor. Hot is very sour. Room temperature is drinkable, but like room temp cranberry juice. Cold is fabulous, though not thirst-quenching.

Flavors: Cranberry, Fruit Punch, Orange

drank Vanilla Rooibos by Tazo

It’s a full leaf tea that can easily survive two infusions, maybe more. It smells a bit like potpourri, which might not be a terrible thing…if you like that sort of thing. It’s a bit overloaded with flavors and they are easy to identify: licorice, peach, cinnamon and some sort of wildflower waft up from the cup. I can’t help but think of an executive washroom or a Glade candle. Still, it’s a pretty good tea for what it is.

Flavors: Cinnamon, Flowers, Licorice, Malt, Peach, Rooibos

This was an interesting tea for a cold, rainy day. Very spicy, full of flavor and fragrance. I sweetened it with some truvia and a dash of half and half. The aftertaste is very vanilla and caramel but it fills the air with a sweet, spiced smell.

This tasted like weak mint tea. I had to check the tag to be sure it was just billed as green tea. There was only one bag of this in the cupboard so I don’t know if they all taste this way. It’s not horrible…but it’s a far cry from good.

My last tea of the day. Taken with dinner at our office event.
Very tangy. But after the super sour lemonade mocktails they made for us, I didn’t notice much.
Everyone hates on this tea. I don’t love it or anything, but it was far from the worst option available to me at the time, and I was grateful for it!!
Also, I have a soft spot for orange candies. Especially tart ones

I don’t mind it in this blend. It has a lemonade sort of feel to it.

drank Apricot Vanilla Creme by Tazo
208 tasting notes

First off, I can tell this tea is a little delicate. I steeped it for 2 minutes and its showing signs of just a tad bitterness. I had to add some sugar to get much flavour at all with this tea. It was very bland without it. Now I can somewhat taste the apricot and vanilla. It’s there, but I definitely taste the white tea base. It isn’t a bad tea, but in my opinion it could be better.

Flavors: Apricot, Vanilla

Although I’ve been raised on earl grey tea, I can’t finish a cup of this tea. It is fairly unpleasant to drink, and my dentist certainly wouldn’t want me to put in the amount of sugar necessary to make it palatable.

This is a definitely a better black tea than their earl grey. A very good breakfast tea with somewhat of an aftertaste but still nice to drink.

It’s not that this tea is offensive, but it’s disappointing. It has a tantalizing, very subtle fruity smell that would make an excellent perfume (!), but the taste is nearly nonexistent. It’s as though Tazo took a mild green tea and then blunted its edge by adding other, sweeter flavors—but not enough to replace the tastes they dulled. The result is bland and watery tea.

I can possibly convince myself of a hint of sweetness and tang in the tea’s aftertaste, but it really takes focus! If the package weren’t labeled, I would have no idea what flavors I should be detecting.

This is a smooth, sweet and pretty true to caramel flavor chai.

It’s not very spicy, it’s hard to overbrew (not a big deal if you forget it for awhile) and generally a very agreeable chai. It takes well to a splash of milk and definitely doesn’t need any additional sweetener. I get an interesting cheesecakey note, like it’s just a bit tangy.

While it doesn’t knock my socks off as I do prefer slightly more spicy chais, it’s definitely a nice one to have around for times you crave something sweet and a little spicy, or when you have guests.
