For the first half of this box I didn’t really see what all the hype was about this tea. I experienced a whole mess of tea fails, but I had this tea the other night and all the stars must have been aligned beause wow!! I totally get it now. A little bit of honey makes all the difference in this tea. I am thoroughly enjoying this mug which is also helping greatly with my sore throat.
So yummy! I’m not a big mint person, but this tea is perfect. It has a nice mild flavor, rather than an in-your-face kind of mint. I re-steeped, and the second cup was just as good as the first. Tastes great with a little bit of chocolate flavored stevia. I went and bought three more boxes of this today.
Finishing up this box – I don’t think I have another unless it is hiding behind some things in the cupboard so I’ll be decupboarding this one for now. I like this one, but it isn’t my favorite of the CS holiday line – that honor is reserved for the Candy Cane Lane. Anyways, this tea really does smell like fresh baked sugar cookies. The taste isn’t completely spot on, but it is close enough with honey and milk to easily pass as a dessert tea. I’ll definitely buy another box this holiday season!
Holiday lineup from Celestial Seasonings has arrived in my neck of the woods! I’ve having this as a tea latte with honey and it is deliciously reminiscent of true sugar cookies straight from the oven. So good and so comforting before bed with a great book (Inkheart series by Cornelia Funke is amazing! I’m currently on Inkspell.)
This may be my favorite from the CS holiday lineup. I think that the taste is very close to what they were going for and I like that this tea seems to be very forgiving. I love to pop it in a big mug with water and go about my evening while keeping the bag in the entire time. For a caffeine free, mess free option I’m pretty pleased with this tea.
After reading some of the reviews on this tea, I seem to be in the minority. I actually like this one and find it remarkably similar to the taste of gingerbread. It isn’t something I would drink daily or even too often, but it is much better than I expected. I bought a total of 2 boxes of each holiday tea that CS had at my grocery store and i’m sure that my 2 boxes of this tea will be finished happily within a couple of months.
I keep drinking this at night and then forgetting to review it, so I’m backlogging a bit… I just moved to my own place and have started drinking tea at night again (not sure why I stopped, but I’ve been out of the habit for years, and I also generally hate herbal teas so it wasn’t a terrible loss overall). I realized that I barely had any non-caffeinated blends, so when I saw this at the store, I thought it would be a good candidate. I really don’t love the regular Sleepytime blend, so I was pretty skeptical about the vanilla version, but this is pretty awesome! The vanilla note hides the lemongrass and it’s a pretty pleasant blend. I don’t like to steep it too long or it gets a bit overpowering, but overall it’s a really nice before-bed cup of “tea”!
so, obviously, I have a propensity for spiking my tea in the evenings (it’s cold in montana. rum is nice when it is cold). I’ve had this tea plain and it is fine. But, my dear tea friends, here is a great trick: brew two bags, add a touch of agave and a drop of vanilla, and a shot of dark rum. hello wonderful winter drink.
Oh, I totally forgot how good this is! I totally passed by all the Celestial Seasonings holiday flavors at the store since none of them really struck me, but I just had a cup of this at a work event, and it was delicious! It gets sweeter and spicier the longer you steep it – this is the only tea I can think of where I leave the bag in while I’m drinking. The flavor is quite similar to Good Earth’s sweet and spicy tea.
This is the best tea bag herbal I’ve ever found. The taste is of caramel and vanilla. They advertise cinnamon, nutmeg, ginger, and cloves as the ingredients but there must be secret ingredients because this is outstanding. Profoundly exotic with a smile-inducing flavor and a powerful aroma. My mother smelled the aroma coming from the cup and said “ooooh what is that?”.
