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

The Cookie Lady

It’s actually a brand new one! It comes in this really pretty rectangular tin. It’s pink and yellow, so I doubt you’d like the tin (hahaha) but there were two other flavors in different colored tins I think. Maybe like a red velvet flavor and something else. I mostly bought this one because I wanted the tin :)

Really? Where did you get it at? :O Haha wow did you just take all the tea out to use the tin for another tea? XD

The Cookie Lady

I got it at Target. Actually, all of the What-Cha samples you sent me are currently hanging out in the tin :) It’s a pretty big one, so I’ll probably use it for other samples later rather than a loose tea.

It sounds like they are limited edition teas.

I just bought this! Came on here to check for reviews before I open since I see rooibos in the ingredients.

I don’t know how Celestial Seasonings did it but once brewed, this little bag of zest and vanilla is LIQUID SUGAR COOKIE. This is my choice holiday tea to hoard.

This tea is one of my favorite seasonal ones. It is so flavorful and delicious! So many teas smell amazing but taste weak, not this one. Sweet, spicy and festive!

It tastes like blueberries. It has the same sour taste as most Celestial Seasonings fruit flavors. It’s not bad but the flavor becomes acidic and quickly drifts into tart even without oversteeping.

I bought this for 84 cents at the commissary, because A BOX OF TEA FOR 84 FREAKING CENTS. It was a seasonal sale. :3 Anyway, it sat on the shelf for a while, until my husband brewed it up one morning and let me try a sip. First of all, it was CLOYINGLY sweet. Like, the taste in my mouth was like I’d just taken a spoonful of molasses. Then I looked at the ingredients label and saw it: chicory. Don’t get me wrong, chicory is a great ingredient in the proper applications. It was just W-R-O-N-G for this tea. It added that way-too-sweet-and-vaguely-spicy flavor that was a big turn off. It completely took over whatever pumpkin flavors might have been there. Yuck.

This is not a bad herbal, and it smells and tastes quite pleasant. And it is very soothing and calming too. I was a little unused to a teabag without string but nothing a spoon can’t solve. :)

This was a good introduction to rooibos tea for me. The vanilla is a nice complement to the rooibos. I’ve found some very nice loose leaf rooibos teas with vanilla recently, but this is a good inexpensive bagged one that you can find at the grocery store.

The best part of this tea is it tastes just like a liquid caramel apple. The worst part is, well, do we need a tea that tastes like that?

I don’t taste any cinnamon or hibiscus.

There are other apple teas I enjoy much more. I think it’s just too much with the caramel.

I work in the freezer at a big box store—today I spent about 2 1/2 hours in -15 degrees. Brr! Had frost on my hair, eyelashes, scarf. I love it! I was definitely needing some tea when I got home, though. I hadn’t tried this before, and since I don’t want to be up for the next five hours, I figured now was a good a time as any.

Long story short, yum! I’m a sucker for mintyness, so this is a big thumbs up from me! Smells amazing, and happened to come with a “collectible tin,” aka, tea transporter for bags that aren’t individually wrapped. Happiness! A hot cup of tea on lunch can help bring feeling back to my legs. :D

Flavors: Mint

Whoa. This one is seriously heavy on the ginger. There’s also quite a bit of cinnamon. It’s surprisingly bold for an herbal tea, and while I do get the gingerbread (as in bread, not cookies) comparison, I mostly taste hot, spicy ginger snaps. Not bad at all!

Uh, so the ingredient list on my box of tea has a lot more than spearmint with flavoring in it. In fact, there’s no spearmint? Color me confused.

I’d call this a peach camomile, but whatever. It’s tasty.

Well, I did go back and get another box of Sugar Cookie Sleigh Ride. I like it too much not to. There were two other seasonal teas on sale as well (this one and the gingerbread one), so I grabbed those too.

One thing this has going for it is actual pumpkin in the ingredients list. And I can taste it, too! Very happy about that. Not so happy about the intense fake sweetener taste. This smells like a pumpkin pastry of some kind but tastes like dipping my tongue in a bag of stevia. Hmm. I get the feeling if I brewed this with extra black tea it’d be better. The pumpkin flavor is very nice, but I wish that fake sweetness was gone.

Flavors: Pumpkin, Sweet

A strong tart-peach scent/flavor – only recommended if you REALLY like peach (which I do!).
Oddly enough it’s much less tart when cold.

Thankfully this one doesn’t have the hibiscus aftertaste that makes me avoid most fruit teas, so it’s probably going to be a staple in my cupboard. (There is hibiscus in the ingredients but further down the list than usual — also maybe the tartness from the peach and orange peel cover up the taste?)

Recommended for: Those who like strong fruity flavors/scents, those who are looking for a fruit tea without hibiscus (seriously, what’s with people putting that stuff in every darn thing?)

Commuter Notes: Teabags but no wrappers, overbrewing might lead to overly tart tea.

Flavors: Peach, Tart

I love mint, the stronger, the better. This brews up a good cup of peppermint. Nice and strong, but not particularly fresh. It’s cheap and you can find it everywhere so it’s good to have on hand.

I don’t know what it is about this tea, but it’s seriously good. I keep turning to it on days when I need to relax or I’m feeling a little off. Maybe because it’s like someone baked cookies for me! Today that feeling is much appreciated—I’m already sick after a week and a half of classes. Oops. Maybe I’ll go back to the store I got this from and see if they have any more on sale. I could use a stockpile for bad days.

This is a shock! I made a cup of this while cleaning up my room, and within two minutes it smelled like I had been baking. The taste is warm and comforting too, and somehow this tea manages to be buttery, just like a cookie. I admit my reasoning for getting it was “hey, it’s on sale,” but I’m glad I went for it. Yum!

I was looking for a tart tea and I certainly got it this evening! Hmm.. There is definitely lemon here, but it’s shadowed by hibiscus. I don’t think the lemon is the lemon that I prefer, but it’s a decent lemon flavor if you’re in a pinch. As much as I wish this tea had more flavor beyond plain lemon and hibiscus, it was definitely what I wanted this evening and I could see myself picking up more just to have a tart tea on hand.
