I pulled this tea bag from the tea box, so thanks to the person who added it! This was surprisingly strong. Since it’s a tea bag, I didn’t fill my large mug to the top, but this tea was so strong that I had to keep adding water, milk, and sugar to water it down. The primary flavor is cardamom and a brisk black base. Definitely keep steep times short for this one. And it got bitter as it cooled, so that’s something else to watch out for. So I was pleased with its strength, but it wasn’t good enough for me to seek out again.

drank Butterscotch Blondie by Tazo®

I didn’t love this one the first time I tried it, but this time I find it much more pleasant. The main flavors are a light butterscotch and some sweetness. It’s a bit weak compared to what I expected, but I find it pleasant. Out of the Tazo dessert flavors, I definitely prefer the lemon flavor, and the other two I find decent, but I wouldn’t seek them out again.

Finally just caved and brought a handful of these tea bags home with me on Friday, from the office cafeteria. No one was drinking this – and I kind of get it because we literally work for a tea company and there is never ending free, loose leaf tea in the lunch room for people to have. Still, I think that for a tea bag this tastes amazing so I just made sure that they were going somewhere where they’d be appreciated…

My giant tea stash.

Flavors: Apple Skins, Brown Sugar, Butterscotch

Evol Ving Ness

aha, so they are available in Canada!

Roswell Strange

They may not be – the coworker who left these in our lunch room got them during a trip to Chicago…

Evol Ving Ness

oooh, I misunderstood. :(

Who knows—I might stumble upon them somewhere, and it’s not like I need more tea.

Kittenna

@Evol – yeah, I really want to try it too. Haven’t looked for them, though.

Yes, I revisited this tea at work during the week. Yes it was still absolutely amazing. Sure, it’s bagged tea – but it’s actually really good bagged tea. Super sweet and rich, but it perfectly captures exactly what a Butterscotch Blondie, in my head anyway, should taste like. Which is incredible.

I’ll have to grab this one, I know my grocery store has all the Tazo dessert teas. I actually love the Lemon Loaf one, and like that it’s an herbal so I can have it before bed.

Daylon R Thomas

I 2nd the Lemon Loaf one. It also does not bug me as much since it green rooibos tend to be small anyway.

Kittenna

These dessert teas are really intriguing me. Will have to, at some point, swap with someone who owns them so I don’t have to buy them all myself! Hahaha.

Roswell Strange

I also liked the Lemon Loaf, though I found it pretty sweet. The Vanilla Macaron was just terrible, IMO, though…

Recently had the chance to try this Tazo tea, and the two other teas from this collection as well. This was my favourite of the three, by a significant amount. To preface, I have been looking for the perfect sweet, rich caramel tea for the last few months and have simply not found one I have enjoyed. This, however…

It’s technically butterscotch, but it delivers that INTENSE creamy, over the top, sweet richness that I’ve been longing for in exactly the way I would want a caramel tea to convey. It’s just super extra – flavourful, sugary sweet butterscotch with buttery pastry undertones and hints of cinnamon. I honestly don’t know how you could better convey that sort of Butterscotch Blondie profile!?

I’m even more impressed because it’s a bagged tea (by Tazo, no less) that has finally sated that deep craving I’ve been holding on to for literal months.

I would 100% drink this tea again – and I may in fact pilfer some more of the teabags from our office cafeteria and hide them in one of my desk drawers at work…

Evol Ving Ness

Is this available in Canada, ie. aside from your office caf?

Roswell Strange

I’m not sure – I think we originally got it because a coworker brought it back from a recent trip to Chicago? So maybe just exclusive to the US?

Frolic

I agree 100% on the yummyness of this tea. I had it recently at my girlfriend’s. I’m normally a bit dubious of commercial tea bags but I adored this and would consider actually buying it if I see it in a store.

Had a chance to try this tea, as well as two of the other “Dessert Delights” teas from Tazo. I had very low expectations for the line up, given prior experiences with Tazo brand tea being pretty abysmal. While I liked the other two a fair bit, this one was just down right terrible. I mean, I can’t argue that you definitely do get the French Vanilla flavouring coming through pretty clearly – but there’s also something that just potently tastes like some sort of pasty kind of dough (like fondant) mixed with salty Play-Doh. It was revolting, and I couldn’t finish the mug…

Hmm it’s difficult to pin down my feelings on this tea. It tastes generically desserty. I enjoy the tingly feeling the licorice gives my tongue. The flavor isn’t unpleasant, but it’s slightly musty and indistinct. I think I have two boxes of this one, so I’ll be sharing most of it with my family. The vanilla is tasty, but there’s also a hint of artificiality that hurts this blend. I sort of like it, but I wouldn’t buy it again.

Tea bag, boiling water and about 300 ml.

Dry smell is strong bergamot with little notes of lavender. But it smells quite good. I was afraid that one of that aromas will overpower second one, but it mixes quite good together.

Bit cloudy, red-brown liquor without oil spots. In aroma bit stronger lavender; with citrus notes of bergamot. Smooth taste where are bergamot notes stronger than lavender; but not overpowering the taste. I also think that 5 minutes steeping (as suggested) is bit too much, it become bit bitter for me. Not extra bitter though. Not so much tea taste there.

In conclusion I am rather surprised, because I expected awfully bitter black tea (as I know that from tea bags). But it isn´t and it is rather round and fresh taste. Nice work for tea-bag!

Flavors: Bergamot, Lavender

Preparation
Boiling 5 min, 0 sec 12 OZ / 350 ML

Meh. I had high hopes for this one; the scent was heavenly. It was sadly one-note and weak. I’ve read other reviewers say that double the tea bags might do the trick; not sure if I even want to go to the trouble.

I’ve had a few boxes of this tea since Tazo brought out the blue-purple boxed dessert line, and I like it. I think it was actually the first of the line I tried, and it was amazing — until I tried the Lemon Loaf (which is my current favorite tea). If I see this in my pantry, I’m happy, but I’ve been reaching for it less in the last few months. I think it might just be that it isn’t as much a hot summer tea? It’s starting to get cold where I live, so the thought of this tea is feeling much better now~

The Lemon Loaf is my favorite out of the bunch, too.

I’ve been trying to brew this tea — every time I get it, I give it to my sister (who likes spicy dessert teas way more than I do). ….Finally opened a box before I had the chance to be nice. I like this tea. It’s good. I don’t have problems with it. I just had a cup today at work without milk and it’s good either way. One thing I like: it’s not sweetened in any way, but the flavors are strong enough that sweetness isn’t needed.

It’s good with milk.

Conference tea – bergamot flavor is pretty nice, but thete is no discernable tea flavor underneath. Better tea than the awake though.

I always try to keep a few boxes of bagged tea on hand for situations where brewing loose leaf tea isn’t practical and Tazo is one of the better brands I’ve found at my local grocery store. This particular blend smells AMAZING…just like I’m baking some kind of yummy butterscotch dessert! The flavor doesn’t live up to the aroma, but it does have a nice hint of sweetness as long as it isn’t overbrewed. That’s easy to do though, so I try to stick to shorter steep times and slightly cooler water when brewing this one.

Flavors: Butterscotch, Sweet

Preparation

A little milk improves this one, too.

I’ll have to try that!

This is my favorite tea right now! My only wish is that it was a little stronger, but that can easily be fixed by adding another teabag or using less water. This tea doesn’t require sweetening, and it tastes like a warm vanilla cookie. It feels indulgent, when its really a simple cup of tea. I love love love this flavor, and I will forever recommend this to anyone who would enjoy a sweeter, milder black tea.

Did I get a bad batch of this or something??? It tastes like burnt coffee to me. I have never gotten that from a tea before. I don’t even smell butterscotch. Ended up sending these bags to a lot of my penpals just to get rid of it. Sorry friends. O.O

I HATED butterscotch blondie of the Tazo dessert delights line so I didn’t have high hopes for this one, but I was pleasantly surprised. It has a strong smell of cinnamon, but not a strong taste of it. Vanilla-y and sweet. Yum!

Good lord. I can’t drink this by itself.

It’s like sipping buttercream frosting, with a STRONG emphasis on the butter. Almost sickeningly decadent. Even when blended 1:3 with other teas, this takes center stage. It’s potent.

Normally, I am all about super rich dessert teas. But this is rich to the point that it’s a little gross. I’d avoid this one.

Flavors: Butter, Cake, Vanilla

Love your description—on the flipside, I raved about this one; but then, I can eat frosting straight out of the container with a spoon. Everybody’s wired differently :)

I bought a box on a whim because I love blondies. To be honest, I wasn’t expecting much, but I’ve completely fallen in love with this blend. It’s such a simple tea, but they’ve managed to create a tea that not only smells but tastes like baked goods. The aroma reminds me of the smell that fills your kitchen when you’re baking a batch of chocolate chip cookies…only there’s no chocolate chips. The cuppa is all brown sugar, butter, and vanilla with the slightest hint of spice. The black tea flavor is very light, and I don’t mind it for this sort of dessert tea; if I’m drinking a dessert tea it’s because I want the flavor of the dessert more than the flavor of the tea base.

It’s one of the best dessert teas I’ve had in a while. I might have to track down the other blends in the Dessert Delights collection, and I’ll definitely keep a box or two stashed in my pantry.

I’m not really digging this.
It smells fantastic in the bag, and when the hot water first hits it, but I find it brews up so mildly that it barely leaves an impression.
Which means that its getting drunk much faster than I expected it to, but still.
Its generally inoffensive, but not very exciting. When I sip it down I won’t get more, as I’m trying to curate a more interesting collection of teas.
