I’ve been trying to dilute one cup of this down with milk all day. The natural cherry flavor is really strong and it’s difficult to taste much else except a very flat blackberry leaf note. I would have personally been happier without the cherry flavor — it’s a bit like medicine. Sugar does make it better, though.
After drinking Celestial Seasonings’ Gingerbread Spice holiday tea, I looked up the line of products on their website and saw that they had one called Sugar Cookie Sleigh Ride. This sounded pretty delicious, and so began the search for this tea in grocery stores. I finally found it in a grocery store in Aledo, Texas, while on Christmas vacation.
The tea does have a sugar cookie and vanillay flavor. It’s a bit sweet already, so I wouldn’t recommend adding more than half a packet of sweetener at the most. While I do think this tea tastes like what it claims to taste like, I’m not actually sure if I like it all that much. It’s a bit too sweet and buttery in flavor. I certainly couldn’t drink more than one cup of this.
Not a terrible tea, but I probably wouldn’t buy it again after this box runs out. (If I ever manage to drink it all . . .)
My experience was similar to that of other reviewers – While the scent is amazing and just like sugar cookies, the taste is negligible. Faint citrus with some artificial vanilla. Next time I will try steeping it along with a bag of black tea – maybe the flavors will mingle nicely? On its own it just tastes too weak and watery.
I dunno what the other guys are on about. This tea is freaking delicious with a little sugar. The honey / vanilla flavors do blend together, but the blend that they make is really unique, really calming and totally full-bodied. I probably won’t buy it again (I gotta stop!), but for the time being, I’m really going to enjoy it!
Backlogging. 7 days ago. Late Sunday night.
The February Backlog: From the 1st to today.
I haven’t had this one in quite a while. I remember it being not really a fave but also liking it decently okay. Warm and spiced with a touch of fruity, it was a nice enough cup to drink late at night.
Last night’s cup has spurned a kick to drink up some of the bagged tea so I can buy more loose. I’ll probably always keep some bagged teas on hand, but I’m drinking mostly loose tea now. The Sugar Plum Spice has a nice cinnamon and spicy flavor without being too sharp. The undertones and aftertaste are floral.

I’m finally back to my home tea stash! It’s been a few days, and I’ve noticed I’m back to being my mopey, boring old self (none of this Alaska adventuring for me anymore…) — and also back to a house that looks like a hurricane went through it. My family isn’t into spring cleaning — we do winter cleaning. It’s still autumn down here in the contiguous 48, but I’ve seen enough snow and ice up in Alaska to make it winter already.
This is a great go-to tea for cleaning days. It’s flavorful, and I now taste the chamomile (after having about 5 cups in a row). I have an odd desire to somehow use this tea to make bath products — it smells that good. I only have three more teabags left, though (even the tea stash is getting a winter cleaning), so I have to decide whether I want to make a mess with body products or just enjoy the tea as it’s supposed to be…
I like the taste of this tea; it reminds me of peaches’n’cream instant oatmeal. Neither the tea or the oatmeal truly tastes like the peaches grown in my region of the world — but I like it nonetheless. The only other peach tea I’ve had that I would rate better than this would be Lipton’s discontinued Sunspree Peach.
I don’t drink this for the taste, really, as I’m not the hugest fan of camomile. This doesn’t mean I don’t like it – I like it in the way I like favorite cereals of my childhood. Even though I don’t seek it out regularly, sometimes it just makes me feel at home. I keep it at work for its calming effects – it doesn’t make me tired, just relaxed. Few things do this.
