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.
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.
