drank Organic Golden Amber by Tazo Tea
4843 tasting notes


I don’t often drink RTD teas, because they’re usually way too sweet and taste more like the sweeteners and flavors than they do tea. I also am not fond of the sediment that seems to accumulate at the bottom of the bottle.

But, my daughter brought me a bottle of this tea one day, so I decided I’d give it a try. The first thing I noticed: no sediment at the bottom of the bottle! Bonus.

I was also happy with the ingredient list that was just water, organic Oolong tea, sugar and citric acid. I like nice, short ingredient lists like that.

And this isn’t too sweet. I’ve found that often with Tazo’s RTD teas they are way too sweet but that isn’t the case here.

My biggest complaint is that it’s cold. I find that Oolong teas tend to be more flavorful when they’re served hot. The cold seems to mute some of the beautiful complexity of an Oolong and this just tasted rather boring. I mean, it’s alright. A pleasant Oolong flavor with notes of flower and fruit, but it is missing some of the complexity that I think I’d be experiencing if it were something that I brewed myself and enjoyed while it was a hot tea.

If I were in a convenience store though and I was thirsty and I saw this, I might pick up a bottle based upon the fact that it is not too sweet and it tastes pretty good. It’s refreshing, it’s organic and it’s not an overly complicated ready to drink.

I am obsessed with tea!

I am a co-founder of the SororiTEA Sisters:

I no longer write for the SororiTea Sisters but I am still the admin for the blog.


The reason I’m no longer writing for SororiTea Sisters is because I am now the Mad Tea Artist for 52Teas:


I’ll still be posting occasional reviews on teas here on Steepster, mostly backlogged reviews because I’m way behind on getting reviews posted. That’s why I’m keeping two accounts active at the current time – so that I can get those backlogged reviews posted.


My favorite teas are Yellow Teas with most Oolong teas at a close second. As far as “flavored” teas go, I love Earl Grey, Chocolate and Jasmine teas.

I also am intrigued by flavored teas with an unusual or unique flavor combination, which is why I was very excited to be the Mad Tea Artist of 52Teas!
