About Tazo Tea

Tazo Tea is a brand of tea now owned by Unilever. Tazo was originally best known for being stocked in Starbucks coffee shops. In 2004, Tazo was a wholly-owned subsidiary of the Starbucks Corporation.[1] In November of 2017, Starbucks announced it was selling the brand to Unilever.[3]

Tazo sells teabag teas, loose teas, and bottled teas. In 2009, Tazo began moving away from traditional tea bags and towards pyramid sachets, and began using more whole tea leaves in these sachets.[2] Tazo uses a non-standard terminology in their marketing and on their website; traditional tea bags are called filterbags and the sachets are labelled full leaf tea or full leaf sachets.

Online, Tazo teas used to be able to be purchased through the Starbucks Store, before it was discontinued.
The online selection included exclusive blends, such as Tazo English Breakfast, which was available through this online store and not in Starbucks or other shops.

Tazo is a member of the Ethical Tea Partnership.

Picture of Awake English Breakfast Filterbag

After bringing this breakfast tea home from a conference, I tried it at dinnertime while eating a tub of cottage cheese. The tea brewed up very dark, quickly, such that a spoon disappeared from view below about the top two inches of liquid. This wasn't too surprising, considering how finely chopped the dry-bag leaves...

Even though this isn't a Stash tea, it was well stashed—just a couple packets jammed discreetly in the middle of a bunch of bags of Bigelow Green at a conference, and only the first morning. Fortunately I noticed and grabbed them: one for there, one to bring home.

I'm not much for detecting subtleties, and pro...

The dry tea in the bag is chopped quite fine, but smells really nice. Once the water's added, the aroma of the young tips comes through very clearly, smelling very similar to silver needle white teas.

The first taste is surprisingly sweet with a strong vegetal finish. The flavor is strong even while hot, but there's...

This isn't the best chai I've had but it's tolerable and if someone made it for me I would drink it again. I had mine without milk but I have a feeling it would be better with milk. On the plus side it's a fairly easy to find and it's affordable, I saw it being sold for $3.29 for 20 teabags. If you're a bigger fan of c...

Picture of Chai Classic (Formerly Organic Tazo Chai)

Bags of this tea came from a conference's coffee-break session, alongside a bunch of other Tazo and Bigelow teas that I mostly have tried already. Somehow, despite liking chai a lot, I hadn't had this one yet. It's a keeper—not the best chai I've chugged, but very satisfying, robust, and sharp. My wife likes to pa...
