27 Tasting Notes

drank Chamomile by Celestial Seasonings

After having Celestial’s Honey Vanilla Chamomile (and hating it), I was wary to try plain chamomile, but I figured I should. It’s actually not too bad, leading me to believe it was either the honey or vanilla flavoring which made me dislike the last one so.

Seems kind of like Kroger’s take on Constant Comment. Nice sweet/spicy start with an orangey finish.

This tea was pretty good. The smell was a bit of a turn-off though…it smelled intensely sweet and rich, so before even trying it I was apprehensive. Thankfully it didn’t taste as ridiculously strong. The first thing I tasted was the vanilla, followed by the nice flavor of rooibos (this is my first rooibos tea). I look forward to having more rooibos teas in the future :) they’re pretty nice.

This tea is awesome! I normally don’t like spearmint flavored anything, but this tea’s spearmint flavoring is smooth, cool and delicious. Mixed with black tea it’s just to die for :)

This is by far my favorite out of the Celestial Fruit Sampler. It’s definitely not tart, more of a peach cobbler flavor. I’ve had bad experiences with chamomile in the past, but I just love it in this tea. It really helps make for a sweeter flavor, which meshes perfectly with the Peachy flavor.

After making this a second time, I felt the need to revise my rating. My second cup was much more pleasurable, though I still wish the mandarin oranges were a bit more prominent.

Just got this tea on sale after the holidays — A whole box for $0.75, so I had to. Wasn’t too sure when making it, I’m not always a fan of more savory/dessert teas. This one is decent, a subtle spice that leaves the taste of gingerbread cookies in your mouth. I sort of have trouble drinking my whole 16oz tea thermos full of it, so I’m not sure if I’ll be able to finish the whole box..

I definitely preferred the Wildberry Zinger over this one. Raspberry was still good, but it tasted a little…off. I think it was just Celestial’s raspberry flavoring that I didn’t like too much. Still finished all that I got in the fruit sampler, and I did enjoy it…just not as much.

Got this as part of my Celestial Fruit Sampler. I like this one a little bit more than the blueberry one, which doesn’t surprise me much. Not quite as tart as I expected, but I do get a bit of tartness. The berries lend it a nice sweet flavor/aroma that I personally enjoy.

Just got this as part of Celestial’s fruit sampler. It smells exactly like blueberry muffins when it’s steeping, almost overpoweringly so. It has a relatively tart flavor, but not too bad. Can definitely taste the blueberries as well as the hibiscus. Overall, not a bad tea!
