I like this one solely because of the name and the picture on the box. Hilarious!

Overwhelming cinnamon flavor (gum-esque) and the fruit flavor is not very distinctly plum-like. Adding sweetener to this was also a bad idea. If I’m going to have cinnamon tea, I’d rather have Stash’s apple cinnamon or Miro Tea’s cin gin mate. Giving this to Beth since she liked it.

well i went to the store to get their holiday teas and they didnt have any at all :( so i got a box of the 5 different flavors and this is the first im trying.

the color is much darker than i expected which is making me wuss out a bit lol

it reminds me of a candy cane, its good, im glad i tried it! now i want to try this loose leaf to see if its better (prob is lol)
i dont normally drink herbal teas but everyones reviews of minty teas has got me in a mint mood! i think this would be delicious if i added hot chocolate to it :) i wont because im already relaxed on the couch :p

I liked this tea. You could really taste the raspberry flavors in the tea and it made an excellent thing to come home to after wandering around outside doing errands on a particularly cold day. If you want an inexpensive tea that tastes pretty good, I would definitely suggest checking out Raspberry Zinger.

An enjoyable tea, but for the most part not particularly rememberable.

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.

I’m not a fan of this one either!

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.

This tea will definitely help you relax. It’s soothing. I enjoy the taste, but sometimes the smell itself is enough to make me set it aside and curl up for bed.

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!

Chamomile seems to be something people either love or hate, I think. :D

Don’t like this nearly as much as the other holiday teas I’ve tried from CS. It has a very light cinnamon taste with a miniscule hint of plum flavor. It’s just too weak.

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.

I’m having another cup of Sugar Plum Spice for a late evening herbal tonight. I brewed it for a min longer, which didn’t make the taste a lot stronger. I saved the bag for a second brew but will probably not have anymore tea tonight.

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.

Very good! Two cups in a row tonight… refreshing, relaxing and tastes nice. Will buy again and would like to try their other rooibos blends. Publix is bogo free thru 12/15 so I’ll have to go back and take advantage of a great sale :)

Nice and sweet, brews up dark, but not sure I got “toffee” out of it…might have had I added a little 1/2 and 1/2. Smelled good, though.

I remember liking this tea a lot the first time I tried it but this batch is definitely a sub par experience. The promise of spearmint and chamomile mix was not delivered right with neither spearmint nor chamomile recognizable and the whole mix tasting like “some herb” tea.

Split a pot of this with a friend tonight. Box is half gone, and I didn’t buy a backup. Tears.

I have most of a box that I bought this Dec. Would you like me to send it to you? I am trying to “free my teas” this year and not hang on to tea I won’t drink. I didn’t care for it, so I just kept a few bags to try blending with something else since I do love the scent.

Bethany

Hah, I’m trying to “free my teas,” as well, but this is an exception since it’s limited edition. Would you be interested in a trade?

Janefan

Sure! I saw your list of Adagio sampler you’re looking to free: is the White Cucumber still available? I am curious to try it, or the Vanilla Oolong (2nd choice). Send me your address at AUSTENTATIOUS2003 GMAIL COM and I’ll get the SCSR out to you this week.
