Juts got this tea on a wimp adventure to trader joes. I fell that the pomegranate is overwhelming and its killing the softness of a white tea, but i love it. I prefer softer notes of white teas when drinking it hot. But man this make a great iced tea!

Its an okey black morning tea nothing especial to it. Its a little mild compare to others and has no aftertaste not bitterness to it.

I have this tea left from the holidays I’m trying to work thru them. Today is raining and its a little cold so had this tea while studying. Is not bad it has a very strong and peppermint flavor to it i also taste vanilla mind tone. I am loving Celestial seasonings new packaging I’m a sucker for presentation. will definitely try some of their other flavors. Any recommendations?

My favorite Celestial Seasonings blend is their chai. I fell in love with it after someone left a box at work, but I haven’t been able to find it since. I tried the chai from their new Steep line, but it’s not at all the same. Their True Blueberry is good too. It tastes and smells like a blueberry muffin.

This tea page is actually for CS’s straight peppermint tea. The Candy Cane Lane version is here: http://steepster.com/teas/celestial-seasonings/2148-candy-cane-lane.

Well this is a great sleepy time tea. Ingredients chamomile, valerian root and tilia estrella flower, it knocked me out every time. Plus flavor is not bad i doesn’t taste medical. This is different then their regular sleepy time i find that one has a more mint to it.

So i had this in Panera Bread while having a lunch date with my hubby. I don’t know i have always thought that Irish breakfast was a stronger flavor blend than english breakfast and to me this wasn’t the case. It just tasted like a regular black tea nothing special, It wasn’t bad for not wow either.

I must tell you that my first impression was a bit confused as I’m used to my black teas like English or Irish breakfast to be really dark and full color. This had a reddish color with incense smokiness, and aroma of brown sugar. On first taste, It is not as heavy tasting i pick up a very tasty smokiness, and then a earthy fruitiness and a little like very soft brown sugar almost a chocolaty end note but very subtle. It’s a hard to put down, i I’m really enjoying this sample. I am surprise i am the first person reviewing this tea!. I would recommend this tea to anyone that likes a somewhat lighter ‘English breakfast’ style tea or if your starting with blacks or just for fun. I hope i did justice on my review I’m glad i was able to try this one

Ps:just finish my best of all no bitterness or astringent tastes to it! I’m going for a second brew =)

The first time i brew this tea it come out tasting like soap, so i let it sit in my cabinet for a while. I’m not a big fan on mint teas, I got this on a impulse purchase last min, i wasn’t sure i wasn’t going to like it. But it is always good idea to have some mint tea in my cabinet i tend to gravitate to them when my tummy hurt, which is the case of today. I smell spearmint i can definitely taste the gun powder as a mid-note and the jasmine as an end-note. Today I was pleasantly surprise with this one everything works great! I love it so maybe i over steeped it the first time or the temperature was to high.

Flavors: Jasmine, Spearmint

Hi!
I come from a coffee family background. I started drinking tea on a trip to china with my mom back when i was 13 years old i was hocked!
English is not my first language so i apologized ahead of time for some grammar discrepency you might find on my reviews.
I started review teas because i think its a great idea to keep track of what i like, what i have, and what i might want, i love reading others reviews.

ps.i love to trade tea but I’m a newby and still haven’t done any trade.

Tea Rating system:

90 – 100: This is a tea I will always have on hand. I will leave it on altars as offerings of perfection.

80 – 89: Will likely be in my cabinet. When this tea runs out, I will buy more. I’ll always wonder if there is something better, but be too afraid to look to stray from home to find it.

70 – 79: Definitely good, but not a clear winner. I enjoy it, I’ll finish it, but I probably won’t buy it again until I’ve exhausted all other versions of this product. Though, it may enjoy a resurrection.

60 – 69: This tea is okay, but definitely not something I’m repurchasing

50-59: meh! ill try drink it because i brew it! I won’t repurchase.

30 – 49: I didn’t finish drinking this tea. I poured it out, I’ll still give this tea away, but I’ll do it with a warning and a plead for forgiveness.

0 – 29: I’ve taken this out of my tea tin, and laid it on a napkin as potpourri. Its not fit for human consumption.
