Tazo - Zen
I absolutely love it when a tea exceeds my expectations.
And Tazo's Zen did that by leaps and bounds.
I'm a little iffy on
mint tea; the last two I've tried have been so minty that it was like
drinking a breath-mint. Not inherently bad, but not what I was
really after, either. So I was understandably worried about this
But, for some reason,
it's been hanging around at the back of my mind, nagging me to try it.
So I did. And now I'm kicking myself for not trying it sooner!
I really liked this tea.
It had a nice spearmint flavor, but it wasn't overpoweringly strong,
like I'd expected it to be. The mint blends nicely with the green
tea (which I can actually taste!), and it creates a really lovely, light
and refreshing tea. I will definitely be drinking this again.
In short: Really
lovely green tea. Nice, light mint flavor.
