I believe the Tazo brand has new ownership. The tea is now so weak, I cannot evaluate what they have changed in their formula. I have tried using two tea bags, but it makes the tea more bitter. Their cost-cutting on production has produced an inferior product. A while back, the same thing happened to my old tea, "Good Earth" (green tea with lemongrass and rose petals), which was an excellent brew, with aroma theory qualities. At the end of a day I so enjoyed holding a hot glass of tea in my hands while sipping and sniffing my way to relaxation. Good Earth was re-formulated by its new owners. The tea was weak, the aroma was gone. It was no longer distinctive. This led a hunt for a new lemongrass tea -- I found Tazo. It was not as good, but a close second. I am now on the hunt for a small private brand tea that offers quality products. Rather than buy another box of this tea, I would suggest drinking boiled water, with a touch of sugar or honey, a dash of lemon, and maybe stir with a cinnamon stick instead of teaspoon. Considering growing lemongrass in a window box, I bet the kitchen would smell good.
