Smells like mint and vanilla. I taste the chamomile and mint equally, with the vanilla rounding it out and turning this into something delicious. And while you can taste the chamomile, this tea isn’t flowery at all. Definitely a good tea to have. And here’s hoping that it soothes me into dreamland (especially after the caffeine I’ve had today).

It was good while it was steaming hot, had to dump it after it cooled down. Glad this was given to me because it would have been a sad waste of tea money.

The actual raspberry flavor of this isn’t bad when you single it out. It’s not too artificial. But the rest of the elements of the tea are very weak. I can vaguely taste the hibiscus, but it’s mostly overwhelmed by that generic bland herbal taste most of Celestial Seasonings’ feature. I wouldn’t buy it again. Next time I’ll be looking for a real black tea instead of this sawdust.

Don’t know if I’d like it now, but I have to say that this and Sleepytime are what got me into drinking tea when I was a kid. So for that I give it a kind rating.

This is one of my special friends.
Sure, I admit she does live in the shadow of Raspberry chocolate bliss, but if you look past that this is one of my happy teas. Fab with a bit of sugar and milk its like a gentle vanilla nutty tea-sperience. Not super strong, more subtle….but then in 1997 they were marketed as after dinner teas, so its kinda fitting. :)

Tweak # 1. Added half a packet of Sugar in the Raw to see if that would help this any. It actually seems to have dulled the flavor somewhat. And the aroma. So that’s apparently not the answer. So do I try white sugar next or move onto something else…?

I love most things cherry and since someone brought a box of this into work, I figured I might as well give it a try. I was a bit hesitant as I haven’t had either bagged tea or an herbal in years. Walking down the hallway with the bag happily (or not so happily) brewing away I got a definite smell of cherries. I thought if it tastes as good as it smells I might have found the herbal I’ve been looking for. It does taste of cherry and…something else. Maybe that blackberry leaf someone else mentioned. It’s ok but it needs something. I might have to either commandeer this box or buy one of my own to experiment with.

A yummy lazy leave the bag in the cup tisane! Taken with a little honey. I am finding the black cherry to be the predominant flavor. It’s really flavorful, and I enjoyed it so much that I boiled some more water for a resteep of the bag. It’s milder, but still quite enjoyable!

Not too tart?

JacquelineM

Not for me – I love tart :) The honey gave it a sweet/tart flavor I particularly liked. I am in the camp of hibiscus loving too, so that didn’t bother me either.

I find a lot of the Celestial Seasonings teas to be too strong/too hibiscustastic for my tastes, but this is a very nice all purpose soothe the belly tea. (Could use some ginger though! mmm, ginger)

“hibiscustastic”- LOL! Hibiscus is an odd thing to put in a tummy wellness tea…

Ewa

well this one doesn’t have any of it, it’s just that most of my celestial seasonings experience comes from the “X Zinger” teas (Red Zinger, Cranberry Zinger, Cranberry Apple Zinger, Red Cranberry Apple Zinger, Potato Zinger – I may have made some of those up) which are full of teh hibiscus. The lack of it here is probably why I liked it ;D

Picked this out of the cabinet at work. It smelled good, but the taste isn’t all that great. I read the package and it says the ingredients are all natural. Black tea, hibiscus, and raspberries. However, it tastes a bit strange. I get an aftertaste of raspberry, but that’s about it. I do kind of like the smell, but I would not have this again.

Purchased as part of a sampler pack. Brewed for 10 minutes, as I like my herbal teas strong. This tea is indeed very cherry, but I can taste the chicory. Can’t decide if it’s a good thing yet or not. I’m not a big fan of sweet cherries, and this is definitely sweet.

While the taste isn’t the most wonderful in the world (I always add honey to it), I keep this around because it does makes me feel better.

Having a cup of this at work. Had forgotten how much I don’t like this one. It’s not bad enough to pour out, but it has a strange aftertaste and the raspberry flavor totally overwhelms the green tea.

I love this tea lately. I haven’t been posting any ’what’s in your cup’ things because this is all I’ve been drinking.
I like it with a little milk (I don’t know how much I kind of wing it) and some, more often than not, some honey (also unmeasured). I skip on the honey if I’m not wanting something too sweet. I don’t really taste the coconut much but my sister who doesn’t like coconut says she can taste it quite well.

I have been worried lately about some things. My husband made me a cup of this right before waking me up this morning. He sweetened it more than I would have, but it was still very good, and a nice pick-me-up.

One of my favorite green teas so far. It may not be the strongest, but I don’t think the citrus flavor overpowers it too much. Granted, I love a fruity tea… Resteep was extremely weak and not worth it.
Also great iced, but it isn’t a strong one. A little sugar helps, though. It is a perfect refresher in the summertime :)

This box has been in my cupboard forever. I got it in a set with some other one I really wanted, and I just never got around to making this. Since I was already boiling water to steep some kiwi berry for iced tea, and it was 10pm, I figured ‘what the heck!’.

It is pretty standard chamomile tea, but when I thought about it I have to say, I am impressed. I am not sure I can much distinguish between this tea and my loose leaf mint chamomile. It’s thick and flavorful and smells nice. The only thing I might say about this one is that it is leaving a ‘thing’ in the back of my throat. What is that?

Preparation
195 °F / 90 °C 8 min or more
zeitfliesst less than a minute ago Yeah, that ‘thing’ at the back of your throat is what threw me off too. My mouth felt really dry after a sip of this tea.

good to know it was not just me!

I like this tea… it’s a warming, comforting tea. It tastes purely like cinnamon hearts, so I wouldn’t say it’s complex, and I definitely am not aware of any carob, cardamom, pepper, etc. It fits the bill sometimes, but I doubt I will buy another box.

I should also note, I usually steep it a lot longer… I can definitely notice a difference. It’s a bit “weak”.
