This was my initiation to Celestial Seasonings herbal teas. I used to LOVE it. Not as refined as other cinnamon spicy teas but easily available in tea bags and still pleasant to drink.

Flavors: Cinnamon, Cloves, Ginger

Preparation
195 °F / 90 °C 5 min, 15 sec 3 g 8 OZ / 250 ML

This tea is delicious. It is very similar to black cherry berry; it has a little taste of hibiscus but with a little sugar it is not too noticeable. The blueberry flavor is a tad artificial, but that was what I expected and ultimately wanted when brewing this tea. I had it iced in my Winnie the Pooh and Piglet tumbler from the Disney Store. No shame, just goooood tea!

The super awesome mj1851 sent me a whole BOX of this :D yes, it’s bagged tea, but don’t be a hater, ‘cause this is SO good. It is more like liquid shortbread than liquid sugar cookie, and that’s bonus points in my books! The tea is litterally pouring down my chin because I can’t drink it fast enough. So glad I made a whole pot of this.

Haha, I love it that much too! I may have gotten a tad too excited about this tea when I discovered it this past Christmas and thought, “OMG I won’t be able to buy this until next Christmas?!?!”…. and subsequently bought 8 boxes. Since you mentioned that it’s not even sold in Canada, I thought I’d share the wealth! I’m glad you like it :-)

Even better with a sprig of orange mint. Box getting low. Uh-oh.

This was a good berry tea. I liked it iced, I use frozen fruit in place of ice to add flavor and not water it down. Unfortunately can’t have it anymore because of a soy allergy, but I did like it!

This was one of my favorite teas when I first started. I liked it warm and sweetened. Unfortunately I discovered I have a soy allergy and this has soy lecithin in it so I can’t have it any more :(. But it is yummy, for those who tolerate soy.

Cold brewed three tea bags of this over night to try and use it up, but also because I didn’t want to waste higher quality tea for work today was I was pretty sure I’d still be feeling cruddy – and I am, so…

It’s really tart. Too tart. Drinking it is unpleasant. I want to dump it; but I’ve had so little tea as of late I’m struggling to bring myself to actually do it. Argh. Dilemma.

I say dump it if you are not enjoying it! There is always more tea, dont feel the pressure to drink so many cups or anything like that!
I hope you feel better soon.

Feel better!

After the day I had, I needed some comfort and this one is perfect! Just like a fresh-baked cookie without having to bake said cookie. Yum. Now on to the wine portion of the evening.

I accidentally bought this. Dreaded rooisbos! Oh well, I’ll check it out.

It’s actually not bad. I can’t really taste the rooisbos (bonus!). I get mainly some sweet coconut with a little spice rounding out the end of the sip. All in all it tastes pretty good but the flavors are weak and the tea just seems somehow thin even after I forgot about it and it steeped for quite a while.

Flavors: Cinnamon, Cloves, Coconut

I think most people use 2 tea bags with Celestial Seasonings. If the flavors were ok for you that helps. I also find that their spiced or chai blends benefit greatly with a touch of milk.

Virginia

I’ll add some Coco Chai Rooibos to your bag. I’m sure it’s like this one but better :D

Spilled a bit of this tea all over my textbook oops hhehe :)

Thank you VariaTEA for sending me this tea! It’s a nice tea, quick and simple because of the teabag. I stand by my previous note where it’s a nice tea on the initial sips, but as I near the end of the cup, it just tastes like cinnamon water.

A nice sipdown to accompany me while I do my online homework. I have a half hour lecture to go and our exercises are due in 45 minute! Eek! I shouldn’t have procrastinated!

A little milk makes this one better!

My before bed tea. I popped my last tea bag into my mug and am happily sipping away at this while reading other tasting notes. This tea has a nice flavor. It’s mostly chamomile and vanilla with just a touch of sweetness from the honey. The smell is amazing. I need to find a way to make my house smell like this all the time.

I’ve only got one or two bags of this left. I’m being very careful about spacing them out, because I’m still not allowed to buy anything. Not even something such as this. I find the honey really comes out with a long steep like you did. Shorter, it’s more vanilla-y.

Veronica

I have never tried a short steep with this one! In fact, I often leave my tea bag in the mug. When I am sick, which is when I often drink this tea, even taking the bag out is too much work. I like it because the last few sips are almost like honey syrup which is comforting on a sore throat, but I’d love to try this tea with more vanilla notes. The next time I pick up a box of this I’ll have to remember to try a shorter steep time. Thanks!

Angrboda

I prefer the long steep myself.

When you open the box this stuff smells like lemony heaven. I followed the brew directions on the box and was left with a thin, slightly tart, vaguely lemon flavored, cup of hot red water. I need to give up on these boxed teas but they are so dang convenient.

I’ve been drinking this one a lot lately because I feel like it helps my sore throat a bit. My allergies have come into full swing now that it looks like Spring is finally here in Michigan. Which also means I am a miserable wreck. I made up a pitcher of this to put in the fridge, just to see if it would be any good cold to take on the go. I’m just having my first cup of this and it’s much better than I expected it to be. To be honest I thought it wouldn’t be all that good, so the fact that it is palatable makes me happy.

Any suggestions on a nice vanilla-mint tea? That’s the one thing having this tea, as well as the vanilla orchid oolong (David’s,) is making crave: a vanilla-mint tea. mmmm

I’m really enjoying this tea right now. The lemon and hibiscus are playing nicely without being too tart. Sort of soothing and energizing at the same time. Enough so that I’m actually upping my rating by a few points.
