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
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.
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
