When I first tried this tea for this review I was surprised by how wonderful it tasted and every time I have it since then (twice more  in two days)!  It is smooth, yet also complex.  Initially the black tea comes through strongly then the green tea begins to come though.  This is a very interesting and enjoyable experience. Another balancing act also emerges in this tea as it is mildly fruity and buttery at the same time.

With all of these different tastes so apparent you would think that they would be muddled together making for a confusing and blurry experience.  However, that is not the case at all with this here.  It is blended so well that the nutty, buttery black tea balances perfectly with the fruitier green tea! I really love it and would recommend it to both black and green tea lovers!  The balance of flavors it provides is sure to please both camps, no problem.

Taste: 5 of 5 tea leaves – Outstanding!  A MUST try!
Steepability: 5 of 5 tea leaves – this tea is easy to make!

Can’t decide if you want green or black tea? For those indecisive mornings, or any time of day for that matter, Tazo OM should be your choice! Although, let me warn you, this tea will get bitter if you steep it too long! I forgot about the first cup, tried a sip, and it was quite bitter. However, when brewed correctly — it’s not hard just don’t get distracted — this is one of my favorite teas of all time. I never would have thought that the flavors of green and black would mingle so  well…but they do! You taste both equally, and the blend of black that they chose doesn’t overpower the delicate green. Hint: make a pot in the morning and drink the leftovers iced! This makes a fantastic iced tea that would be tasty unsweetened or just with a hint of sweet. Two bonuses: 1) this tea is certified organic, 2) look at the good-sized leaves! That’s quite impressive for a bagged tea.

Taste: 5 of 5 tea leaves – Outstanding!  A MUST try!

Steepability: 4 of 5 — this tea requires very little effort.

  1. I’m having trouble releasing the peach and cucumber flavors. All I’m getting is the black and green tea, which is nice, but I want some fruit. Any advice?
