This was a really lovely drink earlier this week, from class in the mornings. To me it was very citrus-y, but the flavor that came through strongest was the tangerine over the orange. I’d definitely drink more of it.

Welp! The Corporate Bullies have done it again! I’m stressed. I thought I had another/different brand with stress relieving qualities somewhere but I can’t find it. So…I am stuck with this. I still can’t bring myself to say I like this tea but at least I am not dumping it down the drain either. I tried understeeping today with the same result.

I’m not really a big fan of this tea. Not really a hater either. I just don’t prefer the taste. It’s not a bad taste…just not exceptional. Having said that…I do have a box stashed away for STRESS OUT SESSIONS. Today was one of them so I am really putting it to the test. I will NOT put a thumbs down on this because – like I said – it’s not a bad taste – just not what I would go back to over and over again…it’s a tad medicine-E. BUT…hell…if it helps with my stress level I am all for it! I’m Neutral.

Ginger is overpowering in this tea, at least I think it is ginger… so ginger haters beware! I didn’t notice it provide any help to cope with stress, it’s just isn’t potent enough for that.

Boiling

So strong it should be called “Blow Your Head Off With Mint”.

Not a bad trait for a head cold remedy! (That’s about the only time I get mine out.)

I definetly prefere Celestial Seasonings’ Candy Cane Lane to this, it’s a lot sweeter and milder for one thing.

Rena Sherwood

Thanks, Jillian. My Mom & I tried Candy Cande Lane after I read your comment and now it’s one of our current faves. :-)

Very good, but you have to plan in advance whenver you are goign to drink this because of the borderline amphetamine affect. However, if you’re constipated, one cup may help gt things moving again. I think this was the tea featured on a “Mad About You” episode.

Jillian

Sounds pretty crazy, although it might be useful around exam time.

This is a great herbal tea, and I really like it, although I admit that it does taste somewhat “medicinal”. I do like how the minty taste dances in my mouth for several seconds after each swallow, but ultimately fades to a more subdued flavor. The inclusion of B-vitamins is an added bonus!

I used to drink this tea while I read in middle school. I went through two boxes, I think, back to back, and loved it. It brews up red and tastes a little sour, but mostly like berries. I don’t know if it’s just me, but it seems to have a little bit of a lemony taste, too. It’s nice.

This one is a beautiful, good lasting flavor. I love the zing in it and I don’t find it too sweet or tart or anything really.

Classic. It’ll only make you sleepy if you chase a Xanax down with it. However, it does help to relax the innards if you have cramps or a digestive embarrassment. I think it also helps ease sore throats. Like Caitlan said — a great companion to sweet treats.

I paid $2 or so for this on sale. Great tea for the price. I like it at night since its decaf. Of course milk and sugar needed. I am very sensitive to the “natural flavorings” and can’t stand to taste that. I didn’t notice it all with this tea.

Black tea plus mate, for a girl who can no longer drink coffee? What’s not to like?!

My boyfriend and I finished off the box today, so I guess I’ll be waiting until Christmas time to get more.

This tea tastes like ginger but without the bite. I can also taste some cinnamon in there and it’s slightly sweet in a comforting way.

Yummy and gingerbready. Good with oatmeal and for something a little sweet in the evening since it has no caffeine.

I love Celestial Seasonings’ holiday teas. I drink this one when I’m feeling cold because it has such a warming effect.

Confession first: this isn’t Celestial Seasonings; it’s looseleaf bulk from the local herb & indie grocery, but I’m too lazy to poke through 64 pages of peppermint brands trying to find what fits.

There.

Stomach bug keeping me at home today. Much improved since 2 a.m. but need to be near the, uh, proper facilities.

But I can be under the weather just as easily sitting outside in cool sunshine as I can indoors.

Anyway, plain peppermint leaves—first thing I grabbed when I felt like I could ingest anything. Can’t beat it for tummy uglies, clogged sinuses, or other assorted miz’ries. Will contend further that there is no need to pay for anything upscale or brand name. Plain ol’ Cheapster Steepster peppermint leaves, steeped strong—-keep some in your medicine cabinet. Cold and flu season coming.

Agreed!

HAHAHA! For those of us who’ve been in the Peppermint room at Celestial Seasonings…it knocks you out anyway…the mint is soooo strong…you lose your senses.

Taking medicinally for phlegm-digestion.

Cofftea

Saying you’re congested or have an upset stomach would have sufficed…

LENA

yum yum! feel better!

takgoti

Hee, the word phlegm always makes me think of Calvin & Hobbes. And even though it means something gross, there’s something that I like about that sly silent g.

gmathis

Sorry…that was just the only accurate way to describe the symptoms :o)

Tastes a bit weird to me; I’m not a big fan of the chamomile-spearmint combo. YMMV on whether it makes you sleepy!

This clovey, orangey blend was one of my favourite teas when I was a kid, but I think the formula, or my tastebuds, must have changed – the last time I bought a box I found it quite overpowering and less satisfyingly complex.
