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.

Ost

Bio

I’m not too sharp with intros, but I figured it is about time to give it a go.
I started out drinking oolong and green tea that my dad brought home from his China business trips.
Then I discovered Teavana, and fell in love with some of their teas. Eventually I stumbled across Steepster, and a whole ‘nother world opened up.
Have discovered so many different kinds of teas, and have been loving this journey! The tea world is insanely big and amazing! And I’ve met some of the kindest people here who have broadened my horizons in more ways I could have imagined! Happy to be here, and to be drinking so many amazing teas! :D

My rating system:
1-59: Really really not a fan. An awful cup of tea for me…Totally undrinkable.

60-69: Not horrible, but not something I’d ever drink again willingly.

70-79: Pretty good. Wouldn’t mind drinking ever so often. But not a keeper.

80-100: FREAKIN’ AMAZING. Always keeping on stock in my home!!

I like pretty much any kind of tea except green tea. Unless it’s genmaicha or strongly flavored, I don’t like it usually.

My Tea Goals:
To find the Best Caramel Tea
To find the Best Vanilla Tea
To find the Best floral Oolong
To find the Best Malty Assam Tea
To find the Best Maple/Syrup Tea

Notes I like: Fruit(primarily peach, melon/honeydew, Banana, Kiwi, but I’m open to other kinds), Malt, Desserts (Toffee, Cake, Cookie,etc), Vanilla, Caramel, Floral, Sweet potato, Pastry/Bread,Jasmine, Honey, Cocoa, Chocolate, Maple, Nutty, Coconut, Almond.

Notes I’m Picky with: Lemon, Chai, Roasted, Blueberries, Hibiscus, Smoke, Earthiness, Puerhs, White Teas, and Cinnamon

Notes I hate: Citrus/Orange (Everything that I hate in this life that I have to take for my health is orange flavored, and it just makes me gag…so please…just no), Watermelon, Raspberry, Wood, Apple, Bacon, Lavender, Most mints, Pepper, Spicy, Tart/sour.

Yes, I am a picky tea drinker, but I’ll usually try any straight black or oolong tea that I receive. I like most oolongs, and I’m still discovering straight blacks. They always seem to surprise me no matter what!

And Swaps! I’m always down for swapping. Everything in my cupboard is swap-able. So just hit me up and send a message and we can totally do that!

On an unrelated to tea note, my other interests are limited due to health issues. But when I can, I enjoy reading and writing. Watching Netflix and YouTube have also been fantastic when I feel awful (which is most of the time).
I love Rifftrax, Rooster Teeth, Dexter, Hannibal, BBC’s Robin Hood, Sherlock, Doctor Who, Psych, and Parks and Rec.
Love watching all sorts of movies too, but that would be too much to list. :P
I’m definitely more of an internet person and love talking to people on every website I’m on. So if you ever wanna chat, shoot me a message! ^^
