Review of Om

6 of 104 of 53 of 560 of 100

This was the old-style Tazo "Om" that you could get in Starbucks before Tazo revamped it's brand into 2 lines with different package designs. Om is supposed to be a green and black blend and thus it seems to be neither when you steep it. Tasted very good though - so what the heck! Not sure if you can get this formulation any longer - since Tazo changed everything to confuse me (LOL).

I remember trying this tea, and I was surprised at how well it worked. To date, it's the only blend of green tea and black tea that I've ever tried.

And believe me...you're not the only one who has been confused with Tazo's change of packaging. I personally am not a fan of the way they now carry each of their teas (with the same name) in both high-quality sachets and old-fashioned tea bags...if I were running a tea company, I'd probably make a new naming scheme for the new line of teas, although I can understand why Tazo kept it the same, because they are big enough that they have a sort of "brand recognition" for their individual tea names. But to make it more confusing, their terminology, calling the old teabags "filterbags" is nonstandard. And to make it all worse, their website has always been problematic...even when it was up, it didn't always give much info (the old one was just a bunch of showy Flash animation).

I am pretty sure that this particular tea has been discontinued, although it's been hard for me to verify this. I certainly haven't seen it for sale anywhere recently. Tazo's website is currently not fully functional--they had a site up for some time, which listed all their products, and annoyingly, it went down and now they just have a single page on their site with a picture of their teas, but no real substance.

Tazo is one company that I have not built any sort of relationship with...they have never responded to any of my communications or attempts to reach out to them.

The Starbucks store, which I use as a reference now that Tazo's site isn't fully functional, doesn't have any information on this tea, which leads me to believe that it's been discontinued.
