94 Tasting Notes
I was disappointed in this tea, I didn’t find it very creamy and found less than even a hint of chocolate. The mint was so overpowering I could hardly taste anything else. Maybe I had gotten a bad batch since everyone else seems to like it?
I use it to make mint cocoa with powdered hot chocolate mix.
This tea does not really help me to sleep, few things can touch my insomnia so I don’t blame Celestial Seasoning for that. But it does help when my sinuses are messed up making it easier to breath.
It’s a good-smelling and good tasting tea, no sweeteners needed though if your throat is sore adding honey will not spoil it.
I started drinking this tea recently but it’s quickly become my favorite tisane. All the herbs blend together perfectly, nothing overpowering the other herbs, an aftertaste like birch beer. Tastes good hot or cold, though it tastes a little sweeter if you let it cool. It doesn’t need any sweetener, though I sometimes add a little honey.
I usually steep it 6 minutes but it can probably steep for less than that, I’m used to black teas and this tea looks light yellow in my glass pot but it’s stronger than it looks. This tea can be steeped at least twice and still taste as strong as the first steeping.
This tea is something of a cure-all too.
