I won’t post every time I have this one for my evening cup – but right now I am still enjoying having found enough on the shelf to get me through the coming year. Love this stuff.

You need to come to celestial seasonings just to stand in the mint room.

I did view this brand name tea at the grocery store but I did not buy; now I wish I had. I will keep an eye for it; and cherish as you seem to be doing. I am hoping that it is not to syrupy and sweet but more like their peppermint tea or such. Thank you for sharing.

Bonnie

I think it’s like a peppermint stick. BTW the big double door warehouse mint room at Celestial Seasonings (about 45 min.from me) is the best part of their tour. You walk into a blast of mint scent in the extreme.

Seule771 This has a decaf green tea base that adds some color but not a lot of taste, with peppermint (tasty and not overbearing), and a touch off vanilla. It is the vanilla that knocks it out of the park for me. There is no stevia or other sugary things added so you don’t have to add it if you don’t want it.

Bonnie I want to believe that would be awesome rather than taking what little breath I have away. Does it make your eyes burn?

Bonnie

No, your eyes don’t burn. It’s where the mint is stored, not processed. If you inhale you get that cool mint feeling though. What’s cool is how it fills your nose and mouth like a vaporizer but there’s no mist.

Bonnie

Are there flavors you have trouble finding? If so, they’re easy for me to get here close to the factory if you ever need to get some.

Thanks Bonnie, I’ll keep it in mind. So far I am only addicted to this one and sleigh ride. Both are seasonal – I just have to watch for them. If I don’t stumble upon sleigh ride in the next month I have a market that will order it. I also drink Sleepytime extra but it is always available locally.

Bonnie… I had to go and look to see where the C.Seasonings tours were. Too far for a nice weekend trip for me :( I grew up drinking Sleepytime and now my son loves it. I’ve enjoyed trying other flavors of theirs through the years and it would be fun to see (& smell)their factory & warehouse. If Hubby gets his trip out west that he wants, I might have to ask him to swing by for a tour there!

Hi all,
I am just reading of the Candycane tea comments. I don’t log in much anymore. I have yet to look for this tea to give it a try. One of you made mentioning of ‘Stevia’ about it not having any; as this is good. I don’t care for Natural Leaf Stevia or such at all. It has an after taste that cannot be undone. I am sorry to say. Another good comment was about the Vanilla contrasting nicely with the peppermint and this is good counterbalance as well.

I must remember to have a look for this tea when next I am in a proper grocery store. ALDI’s does not carry Celestial Seasonings of any kind.

I wish for you all a very happy holiday; and let us be kind to one another. I know I am sensitive and I take things wrongly but there are painful comments/innuendo applied at times here. Or it is all imagine on my part.

We minced of words and not of meat. Happy teas to all and a wonderful New Year.
