I used to work at a hotel a couple years back and my favorite shifts were the ones that started at 4am. despite the horribly earliness of it all, I really loved how quiet and dark everything was. the bar had been closed for two hours, and the bartender had gone home an hour after that. the only noise from the basement was the sound of Mexican polka music and the laundry room washing machines humming (at times it sounded as if they were humming to the beat of the ranchero) The only other person i would see in the morning was the lone person at the front desk. I would groggily say Hi and grab keys on my way out.
I worked at the little coffeeshop attached to the hotel, across from the bar. Yeah, I had to kick out a hobo that would sleep in the entryway every once in a while, but nothing exciting happened at 4:30 in the morning.
I lived within walking distance, and it was kind of cool walking through a silent ghost town that was that part of downtown. I would maybe see three people, max. Just buzzing street lamps and steaming manhole covers. An errant runner with a dog, a stumbling drunk. In the summer, when the sun would rise earlier and earlier, i would see the tiniest whisp of glow on the horizon.
This was my usual tea i took with me on those mornings. Yeah, my coffeeshop had tea there, but none of it was a good kick in the pants as this was. And i hate coffee.
It was bland, slightly cinnamony black tea that made good use of a small dose of almond milk. It had a nice kick in it that helped me though the walk and through the morning shift.
Flavors: Cinnamon, Dust
I wasn’t too enchanted with this one, since I didn’t discern any chocolate or caramel flavor in my cup…just lots of cinnamon and clove over a mediocre black base. Drinkable, but doesn’t live up to the name.
Flavors: Cinnamon, Clove
The Country Peach Passion is definitely my favorite in this box. The others are all berry zinger types which have always tasted a bit acidy/harsh to me. I would recommend skipping the sampler and going straight for the Country Peach Passion if possible. Otherwise I can see this being a good box for company to drink from.
Wow, my husband was not joking when he said this smells just like blueberry muffins! It definitely reminds me of a blueberry baked good like pancakes or muffins or maybe even a blueberry jam. The color is a deep berry red and the flavor is tart, but with some added honey it’s quite good. I have to admit, it’s nice to be able to get back to a simple flavored tea after drinking straight unflavored teas for the last week or so.
Flavors: Blueberry, Jam, Tart
Ok, something HAS to be wrong with me. Been drinking bagged tea because it’s easier at work and they’ve been tasting REALLY GOOD! Had Liptons French Vanilla and those bags have to be like 6 years old! LOL
Bought this one at Target last night…much to my hubby’s protests that I have too much tea. Of course I have too much tea! But, it comes in a really cute tin.
I was afraid after I got home and saw it has rooibos in it, but you can’t even tell. This smells so good when steeping. You can smell the creamy strawberriness. Not much in the way of champagne but figured that’s probably just to give it a cute name. Didn’t add sugar cuz I was needing to get back upstairs to finish work, but bet it would be even better with it….or some honey. Hubby and I spent about $75 in this local honey shop so I must try it in something!
I expected this to be a great tea because of the name. Who wouldn’t want a tea that tastes like apple cider? Unfortunately, Celestial Seasonings was way off the mark. The cinnamon is overpowering when it would be best as a subtle flavor. The apple is barely discernible under all the cinnamon!
Flavors: Apple, Cinnamon
Got this one from The Cookie Lady when we met up at Disneyland last month! Wasn’t really sure if I’d like this much since it’s Celestial Seasonings and i just wouldn’t think they’d make tons of teas I’d like. xD That sounds mean I realize. But I just don’t usually have high expectations for bagged teas!
This one totally surprised me though!
The strawberry flavor is super strong. It’s kinda bread-y, almost like a pastry. It reminds me of a strawberry pastry.
You don’t even need added sweetener in it! It’s delicious just how it is! I would totally pick up more of this if I saw it in the store anymore…just not sure that they make it anymore :( Thank you soo much for letting me try this, The Cookie Lady!
It’s a win in my book! :D
Flavors: Baked Bread, Pastries, Strawberry, Sweet
