A perennial classic since my childhood. Tension Tamer is too much for me! Ideal for when I’m looking for something in between straight chamomile and straight mint.

I’m not much of an herbal tea drinker, but I like vanilla, and I bought a couple boxes of this a while ago. I can’t taste much vanilla…quite a bit of spearmint flavor…it’s not bad, I’m just not that into spearmint. The flavors do blend fairly well together with the chamomile.

Gives you exactly what it says, delicious for a bagged tea. I find the spearmint in it goes well with the chamomile

I’m always hesitant to try blends with black and green tea: how do you steep that? But I bought a box of this in order to have teabags in the office and it turned out to be a go-to tea. It’s a good cup for any time of the day and easy to steep.

I normally hate hibiscus-y teas, but I enjoyed this one. It’s exactly what it claims to be, orangey and tart. Not my ideal tea, but good enough. And hibiscus tea is another way to get some vitamin c so that’s a plus too.

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

When I was weaning myself off of coffee (for the second or third time) I’d substitute this for coffee and it did the trick! I love that I can let this tea steep for ages and it’s not a problem – just more tasty cinnamon flavour! :)

Flavors: Cinnamon, Vanilla

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 love this tea shamelessly. It is so light and goes down smooth like water. I usually drink this during class to calm myself down or sometime after yoga. It is a perfect, perfect tea.

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

Backlog

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 :)

Ost

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.

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.

1 tsp 6 OZ / 177 ML
