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 :-)

Well, next holiday seasson, I’ll look for it and if I can’t find it, I might ask you to ship me a few boxes cuz whooaaa so goood. Will you be my christmas tea mule? lol

mj

I will totally be your christmas tea mule. That would be so fun! I’d get to be one of Santa’s elves lol

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.

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.

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

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

This tea is so delicious. It reminds me of black cherry soda, except flatter and more tea-like. At first I did not think I liked it because I could taste the tart hibiscus. However, I took a few more sips and it was actually pretty sweet, and I could barely taste it anymore. I drank it iced in my new tumbler and it was wonderful. I will definitely be drinking this a lot this summer.

Minty and very relaxing. Eluthero very calming, and I actually sometimes use as a meditation aid. Awesome tea!

I’ve been drinking this almost nightly the past two weeks, just haven’t been logging anything, sadly. I like it… it soothes me, I find it appealing and comforting in a very herbal/creamy/sweet way, and it definitely helps me pass out sooner than if i didn’t drink it. Upping the rating, because I obviously enjoy this more than a 70 rating.

I used to drink so much of this one when my kids were young.

Ah, Tension Tamer. You may not taste the best (invariably better than the last cup of tea I had, mind you), however you do ease my tension amazingly well, and for whatever reason I craved you tonight. Welcome back to my cupboard, yet again.

I have not seen this on the shelf before. I will be paying more attention. The list of ingredients appeals to me much more than sleepytime extra. I really don’t care much for the spearmint in that one. Wonder how the two would taste together….

MissB

This is a weird mix, and it’s hard to describe. I do find it very relaxing though. There’s always some on the shelf here if you want me to send you some to try out.

It’s been a while since I’ve had it…believe I remember it was very lemon-minty.

K S

At least it is peppermint with this one. I have to keep an eye out for it,

Suziqzer

K S, I’m sure I’ve seen a location grocery store carry this one. I have yet to try it, too many other boxes of tea in my cupboard!

Was woken up by my boyfriend whispering something about spiders this morning (I have severe arachnophobia, just the thought of them can give me a panic attack) so needless to say, I was not in a good mood. In the mornings, for my first cup of tea, I prefer something mellow, so I reached for this.
It’s very smooth and light, with a nice citrusy hint to it. Something nice and easy wake my taste buds up. I only steep it for about 1:30 minutes. Was a good way to calm me down after the creepy crawly scare.
I would recommend this tea to someone who likes a light tea with a hint of citrus.

So far I’ve only tried Wild Berry Zinger, so I’m not going to give it a rating yet, but when I made Wild Berry Zinger today, it was very almost sour. Granted that might be do to the fact that I over steeped it (7 minutes), so I’ll try again tomorrow.

I’m almost out, which means I really need to go buy some more real soon, because I can’t end a day without my nighttime tea. I steeped this tonight with about a tsp of herbal infusions vanilla cacao tea. Yummy! It added a hint of chocolate, which complimented the vanillamintiness so deliciously. And the smell of the two together, mmm. So comfy smelling.

Ended my night again with this last night. Even after finally trying loose leaf teas, and better quality teas at that, I still enjoy this tea.
