One of my favorite herbal teas.
It helps me get to sleep.

Yeah, I’m being boring today. I wasn’t really in the mood for tea, but I wanted something hot, and remembered how delicious this was yesterday. Guess what? Still tasty.

very good, but not better than much of the other darjeelings I’ve had.
the mango is definitely there, just barely… could be because it was 2 days expired

Mmm, so minty and creamy. Glad I bought two more boxes of this stuff. Do these Christmas teas go on clearance soon?

All the seasonal holiday teas from CS normally go on clearance in my area fairly soon (I’m in Colorado)!

Good blend of peppermint, not to over powering, but still noticeable, easily drinkable without honey.

I had a cup of this while learning to play Power Grid. So it’s still the holidays around here!

teabag + vitasoy + water + microwave = soy tea latte =]

it didn’t steep fully the first time, but after microwaving again it was very tasty. i need to convince my brother to teach me how to use his espresso machine. foam would make this super yummy.

Threw this one away after a few cups over a week or so. Drinkable, “coffeeish” but I’d much rather have Irish Breakfast tea!

Do you want to know the closely-guarded secret to taking a rather mediocre chai tea and turning it into something incredibly delicious?

whispers Just add Bailey’s. ;)

Birthday night. Lots of homemade lasagna and Carvel cake. A bit of a tummy ache called for this tea and it’s a perfect remedy and a great way to end the night!

I just had to add how much i love peppermint sticks and candy canes (big Christmas fan ). The stick i put in my tea has dissolved and oh my gawd, it is Christmas in a cup. AMAZING

I think it was the Christmas spirit (sorry if i am being politically incorrect :P ) that got me to buy this tea. It has a lovely mint flavor, and tastes more like a candy cane, or peppermint stick than a tea. I know it is a bit unorthodox (you can yell at me later) but i’m actually stirring this with a peppermint stick not, with just a touch of sugar, and it is great! Overall, a great tea to get you in the “Holiday” ( :P ) spirit.

Boiling 6 min, 30 sec

I will be drinking massive quantities of this today as I attempt to clear out my inboxes for the holidays! I’ll be back on Steepster once I’ve completed this big todo!

I’m not a fan of the Celestial Seasonings bagged teas. However, as far as trying to find herbal flavors, they make so many different types (unfortunately they all taste the same to me – some have more cinnamon, others have less). But I admire your dedication to the herbal arena. :)

I wouldn’t necessarily say I’m a fan of Celestial Seasonings bagged tea, either…. though I am a fan of Candy Cane Lane. :) It’s a once a year journey back into the holiday Celestial Seasoning’s offerings.

As for herbals… I’m counting the days until I can get back to all real tea (as in from the tea plant)…. this low caffeine thing is killing me!!! :)

Marie

I’m so right there with you! I went herbal for a while and wondered where all the flavor went to. All promise, and no lift. I’m cheering you on though! :)

laurenpressley

:) No kidding. I’m letting myself have a little every day, and otherwise I’m living vicariously through folks here, and keeping a very thorough wishlist for later!!

A nice, light, sweet tea. Tastes best iced on a hot summer day!
