I’ll admit I’m sort of new to teas, but this wasn’t too bad. There isn’t much to go on; it’s not particularly bitter but it isn’t particularly flavorful either as it’s a blend of teas. It’s pretty good with half-and-half and a little sugar, but then so are most things. When I tasted it without anything in it I thought “yep, it’s tea.” Nothing special, but again not bad either. A little malty.

Flavors: Earth, Malt

drank Green Ginger by Tazo
10 tasting notes

Green tea usually isn’t my favorite tea but I find I really enjoy this tea. On days when I’m not feeling my best or when I need some energy I usually make this tea. The ginger is strong enough to cut through my dulled tastebuds and fuzziness when I’m sick but not overpowering to where I can’t enjoy this tea on a regular day. The ginger gives me a sense of energy and revitalization.

Flavors: Ginger, Green

Tazo’s Wild Sweet Orange tea is delightfully sweet, tart and astringent. Whether hot or iced, it is one of my favorites.

This is a very smooth/light black tea with a noticeable floral flavor. It calls for a longer brew time and hot hot water, but it is worth the effort for the full flavor of this tea. Very tasty and aromatic.

Flavors: Floral, Sweet, warm grass, Wet Earth

A Berry Frui-tea July! I was at the store yesterday looking to get another box of Tazo’s Passion, because it is one of the few bagged teas I really like, and I especially love iced hibiscus teas in hot weather, and that one is particularly fruit punchy. Then I looked up and noticed they now have a bottle of Passion liquid concentrate, and since I only planned to use the bags to make iced tea anyway, I figured I’d give it a try. The instructions just said to mix it with equal parts water, or to even use it with another liquid, like lemonade, fizzy water, alcohol, juice, etc. I decided to go for lemonade!

The concentrate is already sweetened a bit, so those that find the actual tea way too tart might actually like this better. I can drink the regular tea plain (but I have particularly strange tastes when it comes to hibiscus and rosehip and am more endurant than most) and even with my high endurance, I admit that plain Passion got me quite close to the boundary of needing sweetener. This was still tangy, but was like a nice sweet-tart fruit punch, and mixed with lemonade, which also has its own sweet-tart profile, it was really good! The citrus of the lemonade worked great with the citrus notes in the Passion tea; it really did taste like a fruit punch with a lot of rich tangy citrus and sweet floral high notes. I’m a little sad the concentrate only comes in such a small bottle, because it is so convenient to make iced tea this way, and I’m imagining making lots of this over the summer.

Flavors: Citrus, Floral, Fruit Punch, Hibiscus, Lemon, Orange Zest, Sweet, Tangy

drank Earl Grey by Tazo
355 tasting notes

June Wedding! For this “borrowed” entry I have a gifted teabag from a former coworker, Katie (thanks Katie!) She gave this to me back when I was in my “I don’t like Earl Grey” phase, because she told me she thought it tasted on the lavender side, and she knew I liked lavender. I was a bit hesitant because it wasn’t a bergamot/lavender blend and it’s been sitting in my cupboard since. Now I’ve adapted my palate to bergamot, and I really needed a caffeine boost this morning, so an Earl Grey was a good choice.

Of course, the first thing I did was remove the tea from the paper teabag and steep in my gravity well infuser. Hey, unlike the Constant Comment I had recently, I don’t smell paper even after removing the tea from the bag, so that’s a good sign! The tea steeps up dark, with a strong bergamot citrus scent. It’s… not my favorite Earl Grey I’ve tried, but it certainly isn’t bad, either. I prefer my black base a little less astringent, and my bergamot a little less potent so it doesn’t come out quite so biting on the tongue (it doesn’t taste like lavender to me, as far as a flavor, but it reminds me of when there is too much lavender in a tea blend so you get that sort of “sour floral” flavor note in the cup). Despite its flaws to my personal taste preferences, this is a suitably drinkable cup, and a nice caffeine boost.

Flavors: Astringent, Bergamot, Biting, Citrus, Floral

drank Giant peach (iced tea) by Tazo
2545 tasting notes

I was surprised to see Tazo iced teas, and it was very hot out, so I gave this a try. It was much too sweet for me, however I did like the green tea + peach juice combination. I’ll have to replicate this myself with a green tea I want use up and some peach juice. It was tasty and refreshing, but at 150 calories, you can already tell how much sugar they add.

The peaches do taste just like perfectly ripe white peaches, so that’s a big plus. My family loves peaches, and we all look forward to the very small window of “peach season”. The problem, of course, if that peaches grown in most of the world are shipped to Canada unripe and never get very sweet. The ones grown close by that are ripe at picking will bruise and be pilly before they get to stores. It is well known that peaches, along with figs, avocados, and raspberries, have a 1 day window for consumption before they get moldy or pilly.

You can’t buy peaches in bulk unless you plan to eat all of them in one day (I’ve done this many times. If the peach window is closing fast, you can’t be eating anything else!) Anyway, I found this peach juice to be from high quality (ripe but not bruised or overripe) peaches and I appreciate that.

Flavors: Fruity, Peach, Sweet

I adore this tea, my mom had a box a while back and I tried it. After reading other reviews and agreeing with the fruity taste when I find it again I’m thinking I should definitely try it chilled. I like roobios teas and love how they make me feel so refreshed and this one was no exception.

The first several sips, I didn’t like it at all. The more I kept having it and the more it cooled down, I thought it was very good. I think my initial distaste was due to never having had a tea with lemongrass. Halfway through the cup, I decided I really enjoyed it.

I like this. I’ve had strong ginger tea that tastes kind of flat but this one has a fresh, green taste. It’s good on its own or with sugar.

drank Green Ginger by Tazo

This one is heavy on the ginger, light on the green. Hot, I couldn’t detect any of the purported pear undertones and it was a little bitter. Meh.

However, the “meh” was upgraded significantly to “plumb tasty” when I iced it down. Ice cuts the bitterness, the ginger starts tasting a little like ginger ale, and by golly, there’s the pear! Now I’m looking forward to my next glass.

Do you sweeten it iced?

gmathis

I didn’t, but I’m thinking that in this case, it might improve even further!

Kind coworkers continuing to prop me up with thoughtful words and boxes of tea; I know it’s a blessing to consider the folks you work with as extended family and don’t take it lightly!

So this was yesterday’s prop. And an interesting one it was, too. Definitely leads with the ginger, then the lemongrass, and pear? Well, your tastebuds have to hunt a little to find it, but it’s there. Thinking this will be refreshing chilled/iced.

i’m glad you’ve got their support

Kindness and thoughtfulness is a great thing. And so is awareness and gratitude.
Lucky you for having a good measure of all these going on.

Tazo is the institutional tea of my office, so we burn through this stuff at an unbelievable rate. The upside is that it’s about a fresh as your going to ever see this brand, and it still has a “tired, musty” taste. Another upside is that it’s better than the plain black tea version!
I won’t go spend MY money on this, but I’ll drink it as a last resort because it’s better than the charcoal w/ lighter fluid espresso that the $7000 automated coffee machine makes.

Flavors: Bergamot, Paper
