Review of Tazo Chamomile Tea

image
I popped into a local hotel the other day with a friend to catch up and enjoy a nice hot drink. The hotel had a Starbucks my friend had her usual coffee and I opted for their Tazo chamomile tea. I am not really sure why I chose this particular tea. I am still trying to reduce my caffeine intake and normally in the afternoon I would opt for a mint tea, but this tea just seemed to grab my attention.

I tend to have the small mugs in Starbucks as they are always seem large to me but as I knew that we may be a little while I opted for their large mug.

The teabag looked a little disappointing compared to other chamomile teas that I have tried. It looked similar to other cheap brands of chamomile tea to me. Perhaps this is a tad harsh but I have had other Tazo teas which I have really enjoyed and high expectations with this tea. What was also noticeable was the lack of aroma, there really wasn’t one even one. I was disappointed by this I know that I was having a large mug, but I kept the teabag in the mug to infuse with the hot water and it made no difference. I sipped the tea and well there was no real flavour evident it was bland and weak. I regularly enjoy a chamomile tea but this I would struggle to say it smelt or tasted as a chamomile tea should. I am sorry to say that I found this tea to be a tad bland.

I’m sorry Tazo but I was really disappointed by this chamomile tea. It simply lacked any aroma or flavour. It just didn’t compare to your other teas that I have tried. I therefore wouldn’t recommend it to anyone who wishes to try a chamomile tea.

    Tried it at the Starbucks in the hospital. Disappointed. Like you I love most of the Tazo.

    I don’t drink a lot of Tazo tea, unless I’m getting tea from the local coffee shop, and when I go to Starbucks I always prefer getting Teavana tea.

      Hi, thanks for taking the time to read my tea review. I’ve not heard of Teavana tea so I will google this to find out more. Thank you, Chloe.

    I did not like this tea either! I have found that it’s hard to find a good Chamomile tea! I don’t like DAVIDsTEA Chamomile either… Surprisingly. But I was super disappointed with Tazo. If you find a good one let us know!

      Hi, thanks for taking the time to read my tea review. It’s interesting as I have now had a couple of comments by others who have also been disappointed by this tea. I really enjoy Teapigs chamomile tea if you’ve not tried this yet, Chloe.

      No problem, it seems that this tea may not be very popular.

          Hi, yes I have. I am slowly working my way through their teas. I love their mint and camomile.

            Oh thank you for the tip. I have to confess to not bring a fan of liquorice is it quiet a strong flavour in this tea ? Thanks.

            It is an amazingly strong flavour – yes. That’s what I like about it, but I think that this is what you would not like about it – yes? 🙂
