This I’s a good white tea with apple and some vanilla. Really balanced.

This tea has vanilla,milk thisle,orange peel and roasted barley. It smells kind of like orange and vanilla. I steeped for a couple or so minutes. You mainly taste the vanilla,the orange,and perhaps the milke thisle. The only thing that would of made this better would be more vanilla please.

Such a fun name. Sounds potentially delicious.

It tastes like koolaid at first, but if it steeps too long the cayenne really comes out.

About ten years ago, this was my favourite herbal tea. Then, a lot of time passed which seperated me from Red Zinger. Finally, a couple of years ago, I eagerly got hold of a box. Boy, was I disappointed. What did I ever see in it? Either my taste buds have changed or this tea has changed since 1999. It does taste slightly better with honey or brown sugar than with white sugar.

You have got to be kidding me. The box has more taste. (Yes — I tried. I was desperate.) However, my Mom really enjoys it, so that’s why it has as high a rating as it does. I’m not into white tea, but people who are (like my Mom) may find this refreshing. Personally, I can’t find the point.

Have you tried Revolutions Pear White tea? It’s a million times better than this crap.

Suzi

This post had me cracking up!

In my experience, CS teas always taste of either nothing or hibiscus. :-/ Maybe my tongue just isn’t nuanced enough to discover the subtle flavors…but if that’s the case them flavors are reeeeeeeeeeeally subtle.

Cofftea

Adagio’s white pear is pretty amazing.

Rena Sherwood

Thanks for the recommendations, Jillian and Cofftea. I’ve never tried those teas. Suzi, I think my palette was probably blasted from living with a smoker for a few years. But I have a feeling the flavours are subtle to the point of being invisible.

drank Bengal Spice by Celestial Seasonings
37 tasting notes

Really enjoyed this chai. It is heavy on the cinnamon but I like that. I think I paid about $2.50 for the box which is a steal. A big factor with chai to me is if its strong when you add the sugar and milk, the worst is if it gets a little thin once you add those. There was no issue with that with Bengal Spice. Enjoy.

This is in a teabag. Bai mudan white tea with white peaches. This mainly smells like peach. I steeped the teabag for a couple of minutes. This brewed up white. The taste a nice white tea with a medium peach taste. This I’s pretty good. This has alot of caffiene though.

I forget that a cup of caffeinated tea before doesn’t work out too well. I had this after a cup of Pumpkin Spice, and it worked well enough for me.
For a bagged herbal, its pretty alright.

This I’s a teabag. This has chamomile,honey,vanilla,orange,and barley. I steeped this up. This smells like orange and honey. The taste I’s chamomile with honey and orange. This is a decent tea. I just think the flavor I’s not strong enough and I do not taste the vanilla.

This beats the pants off of the “Bremer” brand honey-lemon-ginseng-green tea. It smells very sweet and appetizing, like a honey-lemon scone, with an appetizing taste to match. I think I also really enjoy the addition of eleuthero—the ingredient in “Tension Tamer”, which I think is fabulous. What a great “winter”-variety green tea!

A pretty sweet tea that’s fairly calming. A lot of the favors don’t taste very authentic, though. I can’t really pick out either the honey or the vanilla. It all seems to blend together. Nice and easy to drink, especially at night, but I can’t see myself buying boxes of this and toting it around to my friends.

Anybody want to start a Vanilla Vogue? XD

Okay so this tea isn’t pure vanilla, but there are nice vanilla notes complimenting the peppermint. I’m almost finished this box of tea so I’m really hoping that they’ll have it out again for this Christmas.

They do. I just picked some up last week.

Jillian

Awesome! I’ll have to check the grocery store soon.

There have definitely been a lot of vanilla going on while I’ve been asleep! I think we can blame Teaequalsbliss for this one. :p

Just had my third bag of this (to finish off the Herbal Tea Sampler I got from Celestial Seasonings). I had it iced, and it was quite a bit better than it was hot. However, I just don’t like the taste of this tea. With and without sweetener, it’s tart and overly tastes of hibiscus. That being said, it was much more drinkable in cold form, but it still wasn’t enough to sway me into liking this at all.

Maybe I’m just not a fan of lemon tea in general.

For me, this Zinger has no zing whatsoever.

I’d love to give a more detailed description of the taste, but my Mom keeps beating me to this tea. She loves to make iced tea out of it and that uses up 4 or 5 bags per pot. I’m not a big fan of fruity teas but my memory is telling me that this one is exceptionally good and not too sweet or syrupy. There is a video about it on YouTube by someone who perhaps is a little too fond of this tea: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=de0NcRmxVwI

drank Peppermint by Celestial Seasonings
186 tasting notes

My go-to tea for my stomach problems. I have a box of 50 bags in my cabinet. If there are better peppermints out there, I’d love to know. This is pretty basic, standard, and fairly yummy, though! Revelationary? Nope. But tasty and infinitely soothing? Yes!

I’d actually love it if the peppermint was a bit stronger. I sometimes brew this for up to eight minutes, but the flavors don’t really change all that much.

This was an impulse purchase for me. I do like the flavor of pear. I see that other reviews call the tea “bitter.” That was not my experience: my experience was hot water tinged with so little flavor as to be meaningless.
I know that some tea bags can really work so I don’t shun them entirely but I am going to be seeking a stronger pear blend elsewhere.

I normally don’t do bagged tea, but this blend was quite nice. I brewed 2 bags in 12oz of water, and organic half & half and stevia. Just what I wanted as an after dinner treat.

On first taste I was not overly fond of this tea. With some tinkering and addition of honey, I found the right balance to make it a rejuvenating tea for cold days.

I added this to my nighttime meditation and relaxation routine with great results. Don’t over-steep or you will need to add too much sweetener. Relaxing is difficult with a sugar high!
