Another old school one for me. (and yes it was the box art that conned me into this one).
But it is a good tea, and as I recall quite lemoney to me.
And despite this being something that tastes of highschool nostalgia to me, I am
actually pining for a cup at the moment….b/c if I thought that time frame of my life
was tension-filled. Well, lets just say it needs mega taming now.

Peach-tacular!
But I admit its not just straight peach. Its almost peach perfume with a sweet undercurrent that I couldn’t quite place (but the notes list chamomile and blackerry leaf). But this doesn’t take away from the sweet flavors. Only that perhaps this is slightly like an artistic representation of a peach, not one smooshed into a teabag.

Oh god what?

I won’t be buying this again. It reeks. The kitchen and living room now smell like cheap and nasty pot-pourri, and the taste doesn’t much make up for it. Too much cinnamon, too little apple; it tastes strangely flat and then I just get a burn from the spice.

Maybe if I dump some chamomile in there I can make it drinkable? ::vanishes off to put the mental in experimental::

Brewed for 2 min, then stirred in about 2/3 tsp matcha powder (from teavana) to make my own “Genmaimatcha” since I’ve been coveting the American Tea Room blend after reading everyone rave notes/ratings.

I like that the nutty/cereal flavor of the toasted rice tempers that sweet tone in the matcha, while also tempering the grassiness by supplying a complementary depth. (Does that make any sense? It’s Friday and my brain is fried…)

Sweet, nice desert tea or tea for children. I still prefer Rooibos by itself w/Honey.

Not extremely nuanced, but the chamomile is better than expected for bagged, and you can taste the touch of honey and apples. Had to throw out my box after this pot, though – it technically expired in December..

Not bad considering I got it from a dinning hall. It wasn’t particularly exciting but it is a nice basic black tea. I enjoyed.

Very mild, I prefer spicier, but so very pleasant and ideal for nights

Just bought I box of this. I tastes pretty much like the Bigelow Orange and Spice, at least I couldn’t notice much based on my memory. If anything, I think there’s something a little stronger here, either more orange oil or one of the spices is stronger. Anyway, I like both of the teas, but not orange black teas. Iono why, but I’m glad I bought this! (and at $2, why not?)

Preparation
8 min or more

One of my favorite cheap bag teas. I am a vanilla hog, and they lay the vanilla on thick. A good afternoon tea, summer or winter. I also think it makes a decent iced tea. There are better vanilla teas on the market, but for the price and the ease, it is a good thing to have in the pantry.

For a cheap, bag tea this is some pretty decent stuff. The only issue I have with it is that… well, it isn’t really tea! There is a nice honey taste. A nice vanilla taste. But where or where is the tea taste? I can make hot honey and vanilla on my own. The Camomile is in there, but still… no tea!
I would love to see this, exactly as it is, but with an Irish Breakfast Tea hiding underneath. Blending it myself was tasty.
It is an ok herb drink, and a tasty snack drink. I would buy it again.

This tea is very light and has a slight mint taste, not too overwhelming. It is great with sugar, but does not hold up to milk. The valerian root is helpful for relaxation and is nice to drink before bed.

This tastes better when you can’t really taste, just fyi! A good black tea if you’re sick and congested.

Another box down…had some Saturday night! STILL LOVE IT! Thank the tea gods that I bought 4 boxes a few weeks ago!

I grabbed the last three at a local target last month myself. :)

We have a ton of these left over from the holidays. Maybe I should pick up a box after seeing this post. :)

Even though I was expecting tea that tasted like a candy cane, I still enjoyed this. It’s a subtle-tasting and comforting green tea with a peppermint aftertaste.

This was my go to when CS discontinued Strawberry Fields.
Respectable in its own right, but toss in some taste of the islands (coconut/pineapple) and I ended up finding myself addicted to a whole different tea (even if I still have a soft spot for Strawberry Fields) :P

Oh my!
Uber strong…so much so you can get 2 cups out of a tea bag (whistles innocently).
Still how can you argue when its chai and it has caramel in it? Can’t say I really appreciated the chocolate but lovely nonetheless. And, uhm, maybe we accidently drank the box empty in a week. (oops)

My encounter with almond sunset was a fluke. After raspberry chocolate bliss left me in highschool (taking english toffee and vanilla hazelnut, its sisters in afterdinner tea happiness, with it), I would from time to time try another. I admit selection was made mostly on CS artwork (there I’ve said it).

Almond sunset didn’t win me over that way. Its art was kinda boring. But I gave it a go, and OMGosh it rocked. With milk (like most teas I fancy these days), it was sweet almond amazingness. Even if that equates it with cyanide,….well, I was prepared to go. :)
