682 Tasting Notes
First smell – Peaches! Almost smells like the peach juice I drank at Timmies as a kid, while waiting for my Dad to finish his tea.
First taste – Definitely still peachy, though there are other flavours that aren’t as sweet and fruity. A little more flowery than expected, though after looking at the ingredient list, that makes sense. Fun note – Paprika is the last listed ingredient. It does make a pretty teabag : )
All in all, it’s tasty enough and would satisfy a craving were I suddenly nuts for something peachy, but not a re-buy. Of the three Celestial Seasonings I’ve had so far, Blueberry is the clear winner.
Smells divine. You would have to like fruity teas, but thankfully I do. The black currant aroma reminds me of hard candies my grandparents always had in the house. Letting it sit and steep while the smell wafts over to me is making me impatient – Usually a sign of a good tea.
Finally having taken a sip, I still love it. Tastes as it smells, though a little milder. I find the black currant taste lasts far longer than anticipated and is quite authentic, at least to me. Two thumbs up! I’m not much for re-steeping, but I think I’ll give it a go with this one, hopefully extending my 20 count box.
Mmmm, having a mug of this with my breakfast. I’ve always found Earl Grey to remind me of Fruit Loops and this Lady Grey does the same – just the yellow and orange ones! This isn’t a complaint, just a comment on my un-educated palate. I’m quite enjoying it on it’s own with no cream or sugar, and will definitely be redrinking. My 50 count box was a good choice!
I only drink this tea at work – and only then because it’s what work provides. However, it’s a decent enough tea, I have no complaints. Sweeter than many others, has taught me to kick my inherited sugar habit, though I still use cream in it occasionally. I like it far more than Tetley (our previously stocked generic tea)
