My last pot of the evening…so glad that my conference is in town this week!! It means I get to sleep in a smidge, and that I didn’t have to abandon Chloe (what, has nobody else named their Breville?), and can have delicious tea before I go to the morning sessions. Granted, I’ll probably not get to have any once I’m there, but at least I’ll have a few really good morning cups!!
I’m still feeling a bit off, so I’ve brewed up a pot of this and will be heading to bed shortly to hopefully sleep off whatever bug I’ve caught. Breathing in the mint smell is very soothing, and I’m hoping the chamomile will help sleep come quick. I’ve got a busy week ahead of me, and I don’t want to be sick for it.
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).
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.
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. :)
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!
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.
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.
