Tazo Goodness...

Have y'all ever tried a Tazo Tea??

I've finally given up pop (it was so hard!), so now when I stop at a gas station, instead of getting an ice cold Dr. Pepper at the fountain, I reach for a Tazo Tea. Brambleberry to be exact.

I love ancient history. So when I saw what was printed around the bottle, honestly, it's the main reason I chose the drink in the first place!

It said,

"An ancient Sumerian proverb says one can taste all the flavors of Babylon's Hanging Gardens in a single sip of Tazo Brambleberry."

That's neat to me.

Anyway, other than the possible link to history, the drink has other things going for it. It's not a perfect drink, but a much better choice than pop!

These are the ingredients:
(Water, Hibiscus, Cinnamon, Peppermint, Lemongrass, Rosehips, Orange Peel, and Natural Lemon Essence). Cane Sugar, Concentrated Apple and Marion Blackberry Juices, Natural Flavors and Citric Acid.

Berries are known to pack a punch of antioxidants. Antioxidants help the fight against cellular damage. Cinnamon also has a lot of health benefits.
Ok...this is beginning to sound like a lame report I wrote in Jr. High so I'll cut to the chase...

I just wanted to let you ladies know about the drink. It has an interesting taste--it kinda caught me off guard the first time that I tried it; but now I enjoy it!
It's certainly more healthful than the Dr. Pepper I used to be addicted to!

Let me know if you try it!

  1. hummm, I'll have to give it a try! Do they have it at QuikTrip?

    But for now, you've got me wanting some flavored tea - crystal light here I come... it's in the cabnet!

  2. You are so funny with the Jr. High report...I was into it and "listening!" haha Yes, I LOVE tazo!! THey have Tazo tea at Starbucks too, which is what I get when I go! Good job on cutting Dr Pepper out!! I am not a regular soda drinker but every once in a while I need a bit of caffeine or flavor (other than water..which is what I am always drinking) and I will have a Diet Coke...But I too, cut this back. In high school I drank it like it was bad!!
