Wow this is very heavy on the cinnamon! It tastes like Big Red gum to me… which I like..but I’m not sure if I like it as a tea. It’s sweet on its own (a little too sweet for me) but it’s not terrible.
Overall, sweet, very heavy on the cinnamon and tastes like Big Red gum :P
From the dry tea bag I get a creamy, light citrus, vanilla, then chamomile scent.
Once steeped, the chamomile smells stronger to me (yay).
Tastes sweet (but not too sweet), I can taste some honey, chamomile seems pretty strong, and overall everything tastes creamy and smooth without any added milk.
Great night time tea!
Dry tea bag smells… well doesn’t smell like much to me! LOL… Maybe a little bit of a dried fruit smell..but it could be a mental thing since I know it’s a black cherry tea…
In the cup it smells very much like the dried strawberries/berry mix from Trader Joes. Fruity but not sweet.
Tastes a little tart to me. Pretty strong flavor at the recommended 5-6 minute steep time. Maybe I’ll drink it iced next time.
So I tried to make a tea soda out of this. I failed.
To make things better, I brewed up the last bags into a pot of hot tea. And am trying to come to terms with the fact that all I’m really capable of making tea-wise is a pot of hot neat tea, and iced sweet tea. The second of which I don’t even like and only make for my mother. My lattes are sad, and my other experiments just leave me empty inside.
Oh, well. I still love my tea hot and neat.
Mom picked this up for me on my last visit there…bless her, she’s such an enabler!
I’m really enjoying the tangerine/orange combination with the hibiscus. It’s fairly similar to the Republic of Tea’s Tangerine Hibiscus superflower, but this one isn’t quite as powerful as RoT’s. It’s slightly sweet, not too tart, and definitely orange. I enjoy this one, and think it would be fantastic to have iced next summer.
First whiff of this stuff is definitely raspberry. Second smell and closer to the nose is more vegetal. Giving it a hot water bath brings back the raspberry aroma. But I can also smell the ‘tart’ which actually brings rhubarb to mind. I had grabbed some sugar but this doesn’t really need it. It’s a nice balance of sweet & tart and actually tastes of raspberries.
Part of the sampler box from CS. I brewed for 10 minutes.
It’s not strongly hibiscus, despite it’s being listed as the first ingredient. I’m getting a definite blueberry taste, with just a hint of the rosehips and hibiscus. Definitely lives up to its name. Very warm and comforting.
I’m not sure I’ll run out and buy it immediately (especially considering the current state of my tea cabinet), but I wouldn’t hesitate to pick this one up again.
I was interested in the blend of the flavors. I love chicory in tea blends. The dominant flavor is hibiscus, though it doesn’t have the sour tang it usually boasts. This brew was a pretty rosy pink, lightly sweet, and mild. Banana was nice, not too much. Couldn’t honestly taste coconut. Strawberry is very mild, wish it had more. For the money, it’s a good tea. I would buy this tea again if it had more strawberry. If you love banana tea, this is surely for you! There’s a loooong banana aftertaste.
I wanted to try a new rooibos since I am starting to really love it. The tea doesn’t have the qualities I love about rooibos, that strong honey component. I was hoping this would have a flavoring similar to their Island Mate Spice, which I truly loved. It’s more like a cinnamon tea than anything else. I shouldn’t shop when I’m thristy!
This purchase was solely for the art on the box. I had a Siamese cat , and the drawing was just perfect, cat and tea! I bought this when I don’t know jack squat about tea. It was so gross, I didn’t drink white tea for years from my experience with this tea. I just remember this tea being sour pear. I swore off Celestial Seasonings even! Though they won me back with Island Mate Spice, then they broke my heart again to take it off the market.
I am not a fan…just a couple points off from 0 since the cover art is cute!
As this herbal tea was billed on the box as a coffee alternative, I assumed I’d like it best with sweetener and milk, and that seems to be true. It has a very strong aroma of roasted grains which luckily is different than the flavor of the infusion (the scent’s a little too strongly roasty).
Honestly I’m surprised by how much I like this beverage. I clearly taste the roasted carob (the sweetness of the honey I added helps a lot with that) but the spices billed on the list of ingredients are missing in action – even the cinnamon!
