Tazo Joy Tea – Looking Good On Paper
Dax: It seems like Tazo tea reviews are becoming second nature for the TeaAmigos, as their color-coded packaging is frequently gracing my inbox. Today’s steep is the Tazo Joy, a seasonal blend that mixes black tea, green tea, and oolong tea into one little teabag. I say bring it on. The smell is very bold and refreshing, begging you to get your steep on. Color is dark, similar to a breakfast tea. Now for the conundrum, which leaf brings out the most flavor? The standout performance and Oscar goes to oolong tea. I really liked this blend due to the fact that the oolongability is high, and the black tea plays a great supporting role. Let me say that sometimes black tea tries too hard to be in the foreground, but it is forgiveable. Look for this one next Christmas time, or on a clearance aisle at Target (pronounced Tar-jay).
Mike: Tazo Joy is a blend of black tea, oolong tea, and green tea meaning it covers the full spectrum of teas except for white tea. The packaging also says that these are fine, “celebratory” pickings. Let me tell you an analagous story all about this Tazo Joy.
I was in a celebratory mood out in Chitown at a club when I ran into a pretty little thing. Females love ateasan‘s game, especially when I whipped out my Tea Amigos Gifted Teasan business card. The game was over and I swooped her. I found out the reason she was so fine was because she was 1/4 black, 1/4 Puerto Rican, 1/4 Japanese, and 1/4 Jewish. Children with mixed ethnicities tend to do well in the looks department. Anyway, I’m not going to go into too much detail but let’s just say what looks good might not always end up being as good as you imagined.
Same with this Tazo Tea. Though Tazo joy looks great on paper, performance is merely average. The black tea taste is too strong and leaves the other teas in the dust. Still not bad, just not as good as it looks. Solid daily drinker quality.
