15 Tasting Notes
I really enjoyed this tea! Only one warning, this tea is STRONG! I feel like there are is a lot more tea in these tea bags, so I suggest making a large up, or steeping for less time. That being said, this tea was delicious and not overpowered by bergamot, which is what I find to be my issue with most Earl Grey teas. I would totally recommend this!
Flavors: Bergamot, Earl Grey, Earth, Spices
DELICIOUS! Talk about love at first sip. I’ve always considered myself to be more of a matcha/green tea fanatic.. but recently, I’ve found an undying LOVE for a good oolong tea. There’s just no other flavor or tea like oolong tea. There seems to be a different flavor with every sip, and a warm cup of oolong is delightful to have during the cold months. 10/10, HIGHLY recommended.
Flavors: Almond, Honey, Spices
My favorite breakfast tea! My step-dad is from England and he’s the one that introduced me to PG tips years ago. This is a delightful breakfast tea, great by itself or with milk and sugar. For a teabag tea, the flavors are bold and delicious. Highly recommended!
Not the best, but still recommending this tea for those who enjoy the tase of Chai. There’s a good amount of caffeine and the tea itself doesn’t taste bad. My only major issue with this tea, is that is tasted rather artificial and the tea was almost too sweet without any added sweeteners (a good indication of artificial flavoring). With that being said, this is an acceptable Chai if there’s no other option…. but, I don’t believe I’ll be purchasing this specific Chai tea again.
Flavors: Cinnamon, Spices, Sugar, Sweet, Vanilla
I really enjoy this herbal tea! It’s tasty hot or cold, and it doesn’t necessarily require any sweetening. I especially enjoy this tea over ice during the hot months of the year. Yes, I first tried this at Starbucks many moons ago.. but the Tazo brand itself is great for those beginning to dip their toes into the tea drinking world. The Passion herbal tea, the Earl Grey, and the Vanilla Bean Macaroon tea are my favorite from the Tazo line.
Flavors: Cinnamon, Floral, Fruity, Herbs, Hibiscus, Lemongrass, Licorice, Orange, Rosehips
As a usual matcha tea drinker, I only tried this tea because it was offered at the hotel I stayed at this past weekend. I was really looking forward to a cup of tea, as I had just traveled for 6 hours in the car and ready to relax. The tea itself smells decent, but I was very disappointed in the pay-off of the actual tea bag. There was hardly any taste of green tea, but at the time it was sufficient. Needless to say, I had to upgrade to 2 tea bags to taste any substantial flavor of green tea. Oh well, not for me! Maybe for those who prefer a lighter cup of tea.
Flavors: Grass, Green, Wet Earth
This is a really enjoyable tea! I was surprised with the bold orange flavors, and then immediate warmed by the fragrant spices. This is also a great afternoon tea, which provides a little jolt of caffeine to get through the rest of the day. I like my tea fairly strong and tea bags don’t always provide for the strongest cup of tea, so occasionally brew a cup of tea with two teabags for a bolder cup.
Flavors: Earth, Orange, Spices, Spicy
This was my first time drinking yellow tea, and I was pleasantly surprised! This tea has much more of a bold flavor than the color of the tea suggests, as it is a lighter tea. The smell of the tea is interesting, but the taste is wonderfully delicious. For me, the flavors were strongly nutty, which I enjoyed very much. It is definitely unlike any type of tea I’ve tried before. Highly recommended!
Flavors: Nuts, Peanut, Sweet, Warm Grass, Walnut
MEH. This tea is not very flavorful at all… The Vanilla Bean Macaroon tea from this collection is amazing, and I expected this tea to be good as well. This tea has potential.. but there is just not enough flavor for me in this tea. I prefer darker teas, and this is definitely more of a lighter tea than what I usually drink… But, I wouldn’t bother drinking this again until I had two tea bags for one cup. Disappointing.
Flavors: Lemon, Sweet
Personally, I did not love this tea… but, I deeply appreciated the experience of drinking this tea. I learned a lot about the complex process that goes into making and fermenting puer tea, so that helped me gain perspective on why this tea has such a bold and distinct flavor. This tea has intense flavors of earth, and dirt. I also found it to be quite bitter. I could see it being a wonderful alternative to drinking coffee. Nevertheless, I would definitely recommend this tea for the experience.
Flavors: Bitter, Dirt, Mud, Wet Earth
