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.

Too bad this tea has been discontinued, because it's an acceptable (not great to the point of blowing one's mind, but pretty decent) take on rooibos/herbal blending. As with other rooibos teas I've tried, the first impression wasn't anything to brag about, but it grew on me after a few bags, and I came to appreciate i...

Being a sucker for all kinds of strong and/or spicy food and drink, I've grown quite fond of good chais, in all their wonderful variety of formulations. As such, my default will be to rate them fairly well unless they prove unfit for human consumption. This rates well. It's not up to par with most loose chais I've h...

This tea gave me some peculiar impressions before ever pouring a drop down my throat. The dry-bag smell brought back vague yet unwelcome childhood memories of illness, and it took me a minute to figure out why. The dry aroma reminded me much of the 1970s formulation of Kaopectate diarrhea medicine—then a dense, sli...

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...

Picture of China Green Tips Filterbag

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...
