The first flavor of Tazo’s Zero Calorie line that we sampled was this one, a rebiana and erythritol sweetened blend of green tea, spearmint, and lemongrass. Unfortunately, the added sweeteners overwhelm the base flavors of the drink, with the lemongrass and mint having an almost pasty note in your mouth. There’s certainly some green tea flavor in there, but again, it’s really difficult to get past the sweetener. That being said, it’s hard to understand why they went with a rebiana sweetened product as opposed to making these completely unsweetened. Surely, the benefits of claiming that this is “all natural” do not outweigh the product’s flavor. Packaging is just like the other Tazo bottles, with a proprietary bottle and a simple paper label going across the midsection of the bottle. It’s not an overly attractive label, which is mainly the result of the amount of text that they’ve placed on the front. The biggest issue we see is that the flavor name “green tea with lemongrass and spearmint” has much smaller billing than the text promoting it as an all natural zero calorie formulation. Overall, this product leaves a lot to be desired.
