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

Flavors: Bergamot

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.

Tasty, basically what it says on the box. Tastes like a lemon dessert, no caffeine.

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.

This is one of the new office teas, and I’m glad its there.
This tea is almost a non-entity. It barely tastes of anything, though sometime its a little bitter at the bottom of the glass.
I will not be even slightly sorry to see it sipped down, and being at my desk will help!

Lexie Aleah

I’ve seen quite a few positive reviews about this one and was considering getting some. Though I haven’t tried it myself as of yet.

So I may or may not have accidentally bought a whole bunch of delicious ginger biscuits this afternoon, and may or may not have rushed right home to brew tea and eat ginger biscuits. Nom.
So this was an impulse buy, and its a mildly sweet black tea. Nothing particularly special. Ah well. The ginger biscuits are delicious.

Sil

oooh ginger biscuits sound delicious

Evol Ving Ness

Sounds like a delightful combination.
Sil, PC used to have pretty amazing caramelized ginger biscuits. I keep stalking that aisle hoping that they make a comeback.

I continue to contend that any tea is infinitely better when accompanied by a spoonful of thoughtfulness. This was tucked into an encouraging card from a friend (thank you, friend!) that arrived in my mailbox exactly on the day I needed it.

But even without the sprinkle of kindness, this is pretty doggone tasty. Extremely sweet on its own, but the licorice doesn’t coat your tongue like it does in some blends. Very on the vanilla, somewhat on the cinnamon, and a viable substitute when you really, really need a cookie.

Evol Ving Ness

Lovely to be surrounded by kindness. <3

I enjoy this tea!

Not bad, though it’s not as lemony as I expected.

I don’t know what I did wrong. The first cup of this was sweet and had a decent caramel/butterscotch flavor/aroma. The second cup was astringent and awful. Maybe I need to use cooler water?

Not vanilla, not creamy, kind of bland and astringent. So disappointed by this one.

ashmanra

I use 200F water and only three minutes maximum steep and get a nice cup. Have you played with parameters at all?

sundaysipping

Sadly, no. It was work tea and I don’t have the best set up there. I did manage to get a few okay cups, though.

Wasn’t I just thinking about this tea? It showed up in the free tea area of the work kitchen and I am so excited to try it! I won’t even have to buy some to find out if I like it or not.

Gotta say, the smell of butterscotch is really strong. This is definitely a really desserty tea. It’s making my whole cube smell like butterscotch.

Taste-wise? Wow! Tasty! I added sweetener and milk because it’s a dessert black tea and it is really really good. I can taste the cardamom and cinnamon and what must be the chicory root and I was a bit afraid of that combination, seems like it would be too spicy for me but it’s actually very true to the butterscotch taste, with a bit of warmth at the end of the sip. I’d drink this again. I might even buy some if I come across some in the grocery store.

Just bought some of this a few days ago and thought it was really great as well. It reminds me a lot of Mrs. Patmore’s Pudding Tea from Republic of Tea.

Really surprised gmathis and I are the only ones who have reviewed this tea. I’m betting it’s in grocery stores across the country.

Anyway, found this on the clearance shelf for like $2. I really like dessert teas and Tazo is usually pretty good. Not spectacular, but good for bagged tea.

I actually really like this. Creamy vanilla and burnt sugar with a mild note of cinnamon. I swear I taste star anise faintly in this, too, but it’s not listed in the ingredients. Maybe nutmeg? Something like that. Cocoa peel is listed, however, and I don’t detect that. This is a lovely dessert tea, buttery and caramelly.

The more I sip it, the more I realize this tastes like oatmeal. Like brown sugar and cinnamon oatmeal. But with caramel.

Flavors: Burnt Sugar, Butterscotch, Caramel, Cinnamon, Creamy, Oats, Vanilla

Starfevre

Interesting. I may have to pick this up if I find it.

Lexie Aleah

Need to pick this one up.

Arby

I wish they sold these where I am. I want to taste them but I haven’t seen them in Canada.

gmathis

I fear that this is going to be a drink-it-NOW-because-it-won’t-be-back variety. I was very surprised to see Tazo heading toward the dessert line.

gmathis

(P.S. If it helps y’all shop, I picked mine up at Target.)

Evol Ving Ness

Sadly, we no longer have Target here.

…yeah, I actually liked this bagged tea. As in I really liked this bagged tea. I have an excuse-this is an herbal blend with green rooibos- a leaf that is very small and honestly belongs in a filtered bag so it does not slip through the frickin’ holes when you brew it.

I’ve had to cut back on the caffeine to wake up at 5 in the morning, and this has served as a good winter and desert tea that is not bad on its own, but good with a little honey. The lemon is sweet, and it does have a buttery bready body with a very nice touch of ginger and vanilla. Thankfully, the anise is something that blends into the bread flavor so I do not taste it as much. I’m sorry if I pointed out the anise or the ginger for those of you who hate those spices. It has also been an easy convert to guests. I actually want to get more of this, so it will be my BWB tea for the season or longer.

Evol Ving Ness

You are full of surprises. :)

ashmanra

I tried it! And it wasn’t terrible!
