Never doubt the power of homemade chicken soup and a comforting cup of tea when you’re sick. It really does work wonders. The soup was delicious and warming, but this tea is like my security blanket when I’m sick. It just makes me feel better. The sweetness of the chamomile and the honey are well balanced by the vanilla. I’m glad it’s an herbal, and I’m even glad it’s in a tea bag. It’s relaxing and easy to sit and sip cup after cup.
Bumping my rating up on this one a bit.
While waiting on my first ever order of loose teas, I have been enjoying the handful of trang varieties that I have in my drawer. This is a recent addition I chose to try based on some online reviews … I have to saw that the first cup wasn’t great. I’m not sure what I didn’t like about it, maybe the carob or the roasted chicory, I’m not sure. I added a bit of sugar and still wasn’t cray about it.
I have since tried it a few more times, including a cup currently, and I’m beginning to enjoy it more each time. I think maybe there is an unfamiliar flavor in the tea that took some time to acquire a taste for. I did add a bit of sugar and a little cream this morning… Foggy and wet outside makes me want the added comfort of milk and sugar (the only way mom made hot tea when I was growin up). Anyway, taste good thi morning. :)
Spicy teas are my thing right now and I don’t find it terribly so, just enough to make it enjoyable. I think I’ll keep it in my drawer for now until the loose teas win me over.. As I’m sure they will. Until then, it will be an extra for when I want somethig different than my “go-to” teas.
There’s a lot of hibiscus in here. There’s a lot of hibiscus in most of Celestial Seasonings’ herbals, actually – I see someone else noted that all of their berry blends taste the same, and it’s really true. Still, I find the berry thing they’ve got going on pretty pleasant. And this doesn’t not taste like blueberry – it’s about as tart as a sourer specimen, anyway. Not my favorite from Celestial Seasonings and probably not something I’ll restock, but not bad for what it is.
This is some yummy stuff. Kind of like a liquefied candy cane with a nice splash of vanilla thrown in. I always enjoy having it in my house during the winter months.
Don’t hate me. I drank it. One from the orphaned household cupboard dusty tea pile.
The real reason I’m writing is to see what teas OTHER than brioche you guys like from the American Tea Room? I’m placing an order I think perhaps maybe yes :)
I love this holiday tea. Lovely vanilla and slightly spiced.
I haven’t really gotten to drink very much tea, but I don’t want to have anymore caffeine, so I had a cup of this. Yummy, spicy, basically an herbal chai.
Happy Happy Happy! I know have a box of Sleigh Ride back in my collection! Sometimes the simple inexpensive things are just what you need.
This tea is just amazing at mellowing you out. I don’t care if it’s just in my mind or the tea doing the work, but it really does just chill you out. As other have said, the flavors can compete with eachothers but the mint and the lemon flavors really work out swell together. Personally I do not mind the “competing” flavors, however this surely does not appeal to some drinkers.
This is sweet and mild, with only a hint of spices. It did take me a while, but luckily I was making cookies to send my dad and hit upon it: snickerdoodle cookies! Add a dash of almond extract to the dough, a hint of nutmeg to the cinnamon sugar coating, bake, and you’ve got it!
Here’s a link to my full review:
Liquid crack. I know it is. I just can’t quit. Had with M&M chocolate chip cookies. That kind of swallows the vanilla up and intensifies the peppermint.
This tea smells prominently of raspberry when steeped. It actually tastes like juice to me! The hibiscus and cherry notes are very potent, with a hint of cranberry. I don’t think it tastes medicinal at all. Very zingy, and tangy. It leaves a sweet aftertaste, which I actually really enjoy. Overall, a good tea, that I would definitely buy again! I would imagine that it would make a great iced tea on a hot summer day!
I’ve been trying herbal teas without sugar. So new for me. Can’t not have milk though. They all are tasting watered down though. May have to brew longer and maybe less milk. But I love milk in my tea. :(
Sure, why not?
I ended the day with a cup of this.
Kind of like having cookies, without the calories or the sugar rut.
Great for setting the Christmas mood, however this really doesn’t suit my pallet. It has a hint of sweetness, and a whole load of plum which is accompanied by a nice amount of cinnamon. This cinnamon can easily become overpowering to the point of giving you a numbing sensation on your tongue if you steep it too long or as it has a strong flavor, steep it in a cup that is smaller (9oz and around there). If you are going to enjoy this tea, a large cup or a teapot is very recommended to preparing it. This tea isn’t actually all that bad, I just personally do not like plum teas very much as all.
I love this iced and hot… And this is coming from someone who cannot tolerate hot tea (until I recently visited Teavana a few days ago for the first time, and had my faith restored).
I could wear the smell of this tea bag as a perfume; I love everything about it. I just get the water to just bubbling, and steep for two minutes, than add honey until I feel it’s sweet enough.
Not bitter, not too earthy… Mild with a lovely flavor that’s not bland to me at all.
All it takes, and I’m sold 1000% (yes, one thousand).
A very smooth, calming, and “easy” tea. Great for just kicking back and relaxing. The smell tastes just like a peach, and the taste isn’t as prominent in taste peach-wise, but it’s still very much so peachy.
As other steepers have mentioned, it’s a very deep red tea when steeped. The lemon scent is very prominent when you smell it, and also when you sip it. It is indeed very citrusy, which I happen to love. It’s also very tangy and tart. I also detect a bit of a ginger, but that may just be me.
Definitely a very comforting tea when you have a cold.
One of my all time favorite teas, mostly due to the nostalgia factor – I always used to chill out with my mum and drink sleepytime together when I was really young. I always enjoy this tea at night, the lemon/woodsy aroma and the smooth, oh so calming taste always calms me down and takes me back quite a bit.
Today we suspended the “no-decorating-till-December” rule, and so I am sitting next to a homey Christmas tree: a hodgepodge of faded and salvaged ornaments from House That Was, unfamiliar but lovely gift ornaments from friends that helped us rebuild, and a few precious handmade felt-and-sequin fat-belled Christmas birds my mom made and my sister passed along.
Nothing else would do but Sugar Cookie Sleigh Ride. Cinnamon stick included; accentuates it beautifully.
A friend of mine brought me a box of this last week and I had a cold when I tried it.
At the beginning of the steep, I thought it was going to be mild and a bit too orange-flavored for me. I let it steep awhile longer than I normally would other Celestial Seasoning teas and it took on a life of it’s own. Got a nice color similar to that of a sugar cookie and almost had some body to it. I added some sugar, and a bit too much, to bring it to the full “sugar cookie” flavor.
I enjoyed it despite my cold and lack of good taste buds… I will have to try it again when the last of my cold has past and see if my first impression was correct. If so, I will likely enjoy having this in the winter season most years as a sweet treat tea.
