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.
White ceramic Mepkin Abbey mug (I have two of these.). 1 bag.
I’ve noticed this box is pretty bland so I decided to use two bags at once. Unfortunately, I waaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaay oversteeped it!! It’s definitely not bland, but almost undrinkable. It’s as dark as coffee and makes my mouth feel dry. It’s pretty bitter, too, but it still smells good. I think I’m going to start saving the bags and boil them to make it smell like I’ve been baking ; )
I was putting together X-mas cards and tea-trading stuff to mail to people yesterday and one of the teas I sent was this one. I had the box beside me on the kitchen table and it kept tempting me with its wonderful sweet, nutty odor. But as it was late I knew I couldn’t have a black tea (or I’d be awake unil 5 am).
So this morning the first thing I did was open the tea cupboard and pounce on this tea. :D
had another cup a couple nights ago. i didn’t realize that this “tea” is really just peppermint leaves. and it tastes so good! just left the teabag in the cup because of celestial seasonings no bag thing and my i-don’t-want-to-wash-a-spoon thing =P
have to say that this is a very calming tea, almost feels like chamomile. am thinking about getting a box/stealing another bag from my friend =D
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.
The scent is right, but the rest is all wrong. For once, celestial seasoning’s obsession with propping up fruit teas with tons of hibiscus tartness would make sense. But no! There is no tart cranberry or hibiscus flavor in sight. This is a dull plasticy flavor that tastes very synthetic. I don’t know how else to describe it. Wait, I do! It has the same aftertaste as old jolly rancher candies. What is that weird flavor?
