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!
Well, it has been a long time since I have written a note. My English teacher loves tea and she keeps a very well stocked basket of teas. I found this review on an index card with my notes with a note on it to put on here after class. Well, that didn’t work but I remember writing the note! Here is what it said:
faint carmelly taste
probably needs sugar to bring out more of the sweetness
would make a better sweet tea, not desert tea
I remember not being very impressed with it but I may take a bag to try it out as a sweet tea sometime during the weekend. My teacher keeps her room open and urges us to come and relax in the room. And I have two reading days coming up so I will probably be making this tea again to try as a sweet tea. As much as I love the school’s normal sweet tea, I need more variety.
Definitely smells of peaches as it sits in it’s hot water bath. Plain it doesn’t taste of anything much right away but sort of has a peachy flavor at the back of the mouth. After throwing some Sugar in the Raw in the cup, I can’t say that’s helped it any. The best thing I can say about this is that I didn’t buy it.
First week of fall like weather and I purchased this tea. It was a good thing too since I made a pot of chili that got a little spicy and I needed something to calm my stomach. This did the trick. I really like the mixture of the peppermint and vanilla as it gives the tea a smooth finish. This will be a great addition to a my fall cupboard.
Why do I like this tea? This sweet and spicy herbal concoction that smells like potpourri? Why do I go back to it, even though I know that it’s going to remind me of that basket of bark on the back of some old lady’s toilet? (Or perhaps an apple cinnamon candle?)
I truly don’t know. But I will probably keep drinking this tea intermittently, anyway.
Oh, hello, lover. I think I’ve found you.
It’s nutty and gently honey-sweet, with definite notes of vanilla and chamomile. You can note all the distinct flavors, but they are blended in such a way that they work together perfectly. It’s simply beautiful.
I think I’ve found it. That perfect chamomile for me. And it’s been sitting right there at Meijer this whole time. sigh Yup, this could be love.
Definitely my favorite of the Celestial Seasonings Zingers I’ve had. I love the hibiscus, the blackberry, and the cranberry notes that are in here. It’s a fruit-punchy tea that wouldn’t appeal to everyone (if you don’t like hibiscus or tart, stay far, far away). I love all things fruity and naturally sweet with that edge of tart, so this tea is delicious.
This was part of a sampler pack of fruit teas. I wish there were more variety packs from CS, because there’s a lot of flavors I’m interested in trying, but they can be hit or miss and I hate to buy a box I’m not going to want to drink. I’ll probably grab a box of this one next time it’s on sale.
My last pot of the evening…so glad that my conference is in town this week!! It means I get to sleep in a smidge, and that I didn’t have to abandon Chloe (what, has nobody else named their Breville?), and can have delicious tea before I go to the morning sessions. Granted, I’ll probably not get to have any once I’m there, but at least I’ll have a few really good morning cups!!
I’m still feeling a bit off, so I’ve brewed up a pot of this and will be heading to bed shortly to hopefully sleep off whatever bug I’ve caught. Breathing in the mint smell is very soothing, and I’m hoping the chamomile will help sleep come quick. I’ve got a busy week ahead of me, and I don’t want to be sick for it.
