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. :)

Can’t make this one without everyone knowing.
Tastes of buttery mellow mintiness.
Turned a coworker onto this one, which is double badness since i don’t get back
to the US enough. :P

How do they make a sugarcookie flavored tea (wo/ a cookie crumb in sight)?
Lovely,light tea that does well with milk. Especially nice that CS teas always can be
made in a mega mug (not like stash teas that get watery). And with milk thistle,
see ma, tea is good for me. So if you want to give your liver some love, sugar cookies are the way forward :)

This was my first tea love back in 97.
An afterdinner tea that is amazing with milk. When it disappeared I was heart broken but the door to tea magic was open. But now its back for everyone to enjoy.
Rich chocolatey flavor with sweet raspberry. Is it wrong to want to fill the pantry with boxes?

I’m convinced that Celestial Seasonings does great blends :)
Although this tea tastes more like caramel than chai, it’s really good! It’s like drinking dessert with a little spice kick. Smells and tastes great.
Definitely gets my recommendation.

I recently discovered this tea and it’s one of my favorites at the moment. Definitely has a unique combination of flavors, but it’s soothing and I’m a big fan.

This is a favorite tea, I don’t know why. In my opinion, it tastes like Lollicup’s boba milk tea. I drink 2-4 cups daily with a splash of soy and sweeten it.

I loved this tea when I was younger!

Oof. Not a great day today — it was more of a call in sick, stagger weakly into the kitchen to put the kettle on, then stagger carefully to the sofa to cradle a comfort mug sort of day.

As much as I love all the new fancy teas I’ve been discovering lately, sometimes you just need that reassurance.

This is the comfort tea that I want when it is the middle of the night and I just don’t feel good. I want to put on a robe and slippers and stumble into the kitchen to light up the burner under the kettle so that I can sit in the dark watching the gas light while the water boils. I want to add a generous spoonful of honey and take my mug of tea (teabag and spoon and all) back to bed where I can curl up and drink my tea from the spoon until it’s cool enough to sip directly from the mug. I want this tea, specifically, in this teabag that’s going to be stuck to the side of the mug when I wake up in the morning feeling better because I finally got some sleep. This is my comfort tea.

It’s ok. I’m using up what I have, and not buying more.

Lovely and sweet and spicy and comforting. Like most fruit teas, it will curdle milk, but I do have memories of drinking it with some kind of milk (dairy or not) which made for a comforting, mild drink perfect for late in the evening on a misty autumn day.

It was Christmastime and as I strolled down the tea aisle in the local grocery store, I saw this festive tea. It is certainly an interesting idea for a tea so I decided to give it a try. This was my first tea from Celestial Seasonings and I have to say that I’m looking forward to trying more from them. The initial scent of the tea is exactly like a candy cane. The tea also tastes remarkably like a minty candy cane, and it’s very enjoyable. The package says that this comes on a green tea base but it tasted more herbal to me than anything. Nevertheless, this is a great tea to try if you are fortunate enough to find it.

A simple tea, cheap and available in a lot of grocery stores. Though I agree with Michel Wolfe, the flavor is definitely lacking.

After a few cups spread over several days this tea does grow on you.

I steeped this bag for over 15 minutes and I still can’t taste the citrus. Lemon? Yes. Orange? No. Is Lemon a citrus? I don’t know actually so, if it is, then I retract my first sentence. Overall, extremely light taste (even with the steeping time) and the taste is mainly a pleasant mix between white and green tea. The lemon aroma really brings it home, so to speak.
