From Tazo

All Natural

A delicate tea with notions of fresh apricot and Tahitian vanilla.

Antioxidants within

Tazo® Vanilla Apricot White mixes prized Chinese tea buds plucked in the splendor of their youth, alluring hints of creamy Tahitian vanilla and notes of fresh, juicy apricots in a golden brew that positively glows in the cup. After a long sip, you may detect a certain glow in your aura as well. But that could just be the tea talking.

Did you know? In China, apricots symbolize health. In the 2nd century A.D., patients of Dr. Tung Fung could plant apricot trees to pay for his services, though referrals weren’t covered.

I bought this tea on a whim, just an hour ago, but now that I’ve tasted it, I have to go back and buy at least 5 more boxes. I’m purposely waiting a couple hours before I go back to the same store so I don’t look like a tea-obsessee(which, I most definitely am).
As with most white teas, if you brew this apricot vanilla creme tea hot, it will have a strange sour-ish, bitter, almost metallic-like (aluminum, to be precise) taste. I always avoid brewing white (and often, green, too) teas hot for this very reason.
My favorite way to enjoy this white tea is to simply place the bag in room-temperature water. The apricot flavor will infuse into the water within a few minutes, so you don’t have to brew this overnight. It’s a lovely treat at anytime of day with any meal. I’m currently on my 2nd cup of this tea with the same bag, and I suspect I can pull at least another 2-3 more cups (most likely, even more) as a coldbrew.

I like that this tea is both fruity and smooth. Very drinkable.

I like this tea. Not my favorite from Tazo, but it’s not bad and I enjoyed drinking it. It does have a bit of a bitter aftertaste considering it’s a white tea, and I think the name sounds better than the tea tastes (I picked up on a hint of the apricot, but couldn’t really taste the vanilla). For someone who’s used to Celestial Seasonings’ more vibrant vanilla flavor, that part was a bit of a letdown. However, this is still a wonderful late-afternoon relaxing tea that would be a great pairing with a good book. It doesn’t compare to a luxurious Fujian white tea but if I wasn’t looking for a dessert tea or a posh treat to serve to guests – just a nice afternoon tea to enjoy while I relaxed – this would not disappoint.

A staple I always brew in combination with a black tea and drink over ice. One of my favorites I really love. Have not had it hot.

I picked up a box of the white enveloped filter bags of Tazo Apricot Vanilla Creme a while back. Today is the day to find out how they taste!

The dried filter bag smelled scarily like blue cheese, so I got off to a bad start, fairly pessimistic about what the brew would be like. Fortunately, it tasted fine. The liquor was a bit cloudy, and yellower than the loose leaf organic version of this tea from Tazo, but the taste was similar, if a bit less clear and distinct.

it tastes okay for a quick fruity filter bag tea. Nothing to cry about when this one is discontinued.

I normally don’t like teas that are already pre-packed but OH MY GOD. I love this tea! It’s creamy, rich and sweet in a subtle way! I love apricots and vanilla and this is a perfect blend of both.

I’ve tried this tea before and I did not enjoy it. After reading the reviews on here however, I decided to cold brew it and give it another chance. I am sad to say that I still did not enjoy this flavor. I can’t exactly pin down why, but it just didn’t work for me. Oh well.

Tea of this afternoon, after resume send outs. Why is pressing send on an application so stressful?
I think I’m compelled, every time I have this, to say that its the smell of the thing, rather than the taste, that really makes it. Delicious. You can smell the apricot down to its core. Yum.
It tastes light, fruity, and generally unimpressive pleasant. It smells like heaven.


Because there’s always that one tiny but critically important detail you are concerned you have overlooked and you can’t get that confounded email back!!!! (No…this never happens to me!)

Regarding the aroma of this tea, it is heavenly!

This is the second Tazo tea I picked up. It was actually the smell of this that made me look more closely at the box… because it smelled so strongly of artificial orange candy that I suspected for a moment I’d misread completely.

Who writes this copy.

Who are you people.

This is the most ridiculous thing I’ve ever read. It’s so over-the-top pretentious it’s offensive. Also sucky, sucky prose; please enjoy this gem: “Explore lemongrass lawns, carpets of chamomile and the living history of your ancestors.” I guess someone graduated from Alliteration U summa cum laude. And whose ancestors would that be? Are they somehow connected to the great tradition of child slave labour on tea plantations? So lofty! So spiritual! Let’s all pose in First Nations headdresses and bindis together!

The tea is… not quite as bad as its product copy. The vile orange is mostly gone in the cup, but Tazo’s apricot flavouring leaves a lot to be desired. The promised vanilla is nowhere to be found and there is a weird, filmy aftertaste that makes me think of Tang powder.


Tazo, I think I have some random tea bags I’ve picked up here and there, but when I’m done with those, I’m done with you.

[Picked up at Whole Foods in NOLA, March 2014.]

OMG. That is the most inane thing I’ve read. Wow.


Remember, Cavo, that each cup is a story, unfolding with every sip! I guess low-grade bagged tea is like a really really short story, then – like a haiku?


I offend your mouth
with my deceptive presence
of non-apricot


I can’t stop laughing. I’m horrified and amused at the same time!




LOL thank you for this review, best part of my day so far :D


Haha, aw! Thanks, guys – you make it completely worth it drinking bad tea.


Thanks for stepping in front of the bullet on this one Anna. The Steepster community is in your debt. Also loved your tasting note. That was the best laugh I’ve had in days :D


Too funny!

Tea Pet

As someone who earns part of their living as a writer and writes content for teas on almost a monthly basis, thank you. Thank you, Anna. This is the funniest thing that I have read in weeks! XD Now, whenever I beat myself up over my writing ability, I will think about the ‘lemongrass lawns’ and ‘living history of my ancestors’ and ROLFCOPTER!!

I haven’t sampled many Tazo teas, but when I passed this one in the store, I just had to try it. I’m so glad I did, too!

The flavor and aroma is light and fruity. The apricot tastes natural and fresh and blends in well with the vanilla. This tea has a lot of depth, and I can’t imagine myself getting bored with it. It just tastes so wonderful!
