Could have sworn I logged this before. 6oz cup. Just off boiling. The orange and clove are quite nice. The tea suffers from not enough leaf in the bag and being decaf. Even so, this is really hitting my comfort zone dead center tonight. Ready for some sleep. After 32 years I start back to college tomorrow.

Lala

Good luck on your first day of school!

I knew I would like this tea just by reading the description. But it was never available in Canada, no matter where I looked. I couldn’t even get it online unless I paid huge amounts for shipping (more for shipping than the tea). So I was super excited when I found it online at a Canadian retailer, and ordered some.

Murphey’s Law.

Two days after my internet order, I stumbled across this in a local health food store for super cheap.

It is delicious. The dry tea smells like orange rind and clove. The brewed tea tastes like orange, cinnamon and clove. There is some sweetness to it. A bit of orange rind but it is very light, and mostly adds a sweet and spicey taste. The black tea is fairly mild, but it is also the decaf version, so I am not sure if that is why it is mild or not.

I feel like this tea was made just for me!

I don’t taste a lot of difference between the decaf and regular versions – this was my intro into tea, besides my families Lipton iced tea, and yes it still tastes quite delicious. I just wish there was more tea in the bag so I could make more than 5 ounces at a time.

I need to clean out my tea cupboard at home. After spending so much time checking out reviews, etc, on this site, I decided I should probably be drinking tea instead of reading about it. I wanted to drink some tea so badly that I went with the first decaf I laid my hands on. This was it.

Hey, I almost always drink tea WHILE reading Steepster. Can’t help it. It’s too inspiring. :)

Hah, sometimes I decide to peek at the site and get sucked in without meaning to. Then I realize that I’m not drinking tea. OR working.

Oh. My. What a nightmare! Ugh! After the disappointment of Celestial Seasonings’ Gingerbread Spice this afternoon, I decided to brew up a cup of something different and decaf. What a disappointment.

This one smells overwhelmingly of cloves. I can’t smell much of anything else. Like liquid clove. The color is gorgeous, though. But the taste? It doesn’t really taste like much of anything! There’s really no black tea taste, and I couldn’t even taste the orange peel in there. It was just cloves, cloves, cloves. I’m not the hugest fan of that particular spice, so it was very off-putting. Almost all of this cup went down the drain. Blech. My face looked exactly like the first one on steepster’s slider. Except not as red.

I will not be drinking this again.

I should not laugh at your pain, but I did anyway. Sorry! :D

teaplz

No need to apologize! :D The smell was making me nauseous and numb. And since the tea barely tasted like anything… what a miserable combination. Today’s lesson: start getting into loose leaf tea!

Today has not been a good day as far as my appetite goes, and I’m only just now having my first cup of tea for the day. It’s a day for comfort food, and being fairly late in the day, not a good time for caffeine. As such, this tea called to me.

Constant Comment is one of the first teas that I fell in love with as a child. While that was the original, caffeinated version, I find there’s very little difference between the two in taste. (Still, I’ll be doing a review of the other some time in the future. Both are definitely staples in my tea stock.)

Drinking this tea is like coming home. It needs a fair amount of sugar to find its perfect spot, but it’s wonderful when it’s there. The orange rind and spices are in one of my favourite blends in this tea (I like it much more than most of the Christmas teas with similar combinations), and…. well, as I said, this is really my comfort food version of tea.

Thank goodness for Constant Comment. Thank goodness for its decaffeinated cousin. Sometimes… sometimes it’s just the perfect thing when I need a cup of comfort and relaxation.

This one has a special place in my heart as it reminds me of my mother and grandmother—they use a couple of these bags in a huge bundle of different bags to make their iced tea.

I can’t speak to the quality of the black tea because the spices overpower its taste. The spice is nice, and the orange flavor comes out more at the end of the sip and in the aftertaste. Still feels unbalanced, though.

I douse myself in Constant Comment on a daily basis; I consume the regular during working hours and decaf in the evenings. There is little difference between the two that I can gather. It’s excellent for blending when you want a touch of spice to bring an earthy, darker tea to a brighter existence. I buy two boxes a week for home use.

Great uncle had this in his cabinet, I don’t usually reach for decaffeinated teas but I was in the mood for that clove-y and cinnamon-y spice so I had it anyway. Added some milk this time which I usually don’t do; it was purdy good! Couldn’t taste the difference.
