Lulu and Ezreal would like to have a word with you about this.
But seriously- taric's heal isn't all that great. It does minimal healing, except during lane phase if you level it past the normal amount. If you DO level it up instead of W, your hurting your adc by not giving him the armor buff+ the extra shatter damage to burst with. Taric becomes almost useless except for every 20 seconds when his heal is up.
Considering lulu's Q has godly range, slows, a silence, and a hp+knockup ult, she pretty much is the taric counter imo. Perma-slow an already slow melee champion= he can't get to you. W him so he can't use his W/R on your stunned adc. Your ADC is almost bursted down? E/R= another couple hundred HP.
