I made this in a large pot and then poured it into an old glass juice bottle and stuck it in the fridge. It’s wonderful to have cool. There are fruity notes that are reminiscent of fruit punch but then the tartness from the orange and hibiscus swoop right in and remind you that you’re drinking tea, not juice. It’s very refreshing, particularly on a day when the humidity and heat is just so that it makes it like a chore to breathe. There’s something about the hibiscus and orange, the type of tartness, that just cuts through that heat — and that much more when it’s cooled. I don’t think that should be surprising, though. Hibiscus tea is made and spiced on the islands and in South America, likely for this very reason. I think I’ll make a home-made batch of that hibiscus tea when I finish this.

This is really refreshing to have cold right now. But, I’m afraid even really great-tasting, cold tea is no match for 95% humidity… Walking around the house is like going for a swim right now. Hey, maybe I need to put this in popsicle form? Couldn’t hurt… ;)

Update: It’s now 99% humidity here. If I leave a tea bag out, will it brew the air? :P

This tea is one of few that tastes as good warm as it does cool. It has a tartness to it, perhaps from the lime or the hibiscus. The scent is lightly that of lime and watermelon and the color is a beautiful, deep pink. The feeling it imparts is incredibly refreshing. This is truly a thirst-quenching drink! It’s also balanced enough not to need any sweetener. I like to make a whole pot of boiling water, throw in a few tea bags, put on the cover, and just let this steep. I’ll scoop out a few cups for myself while it’s still warm, then put the rest in the fridge for later. This is tasty enough that I’d make it in its iced tea version for guests if I were having a party. I have many boxes of this at home for a reason! :)

Note: This is an herbal tea and does not contain the tea plant camellia sinensis, but it will still become bitter if you over-brew it. So, keep this in mind when making the tea.

Latergram from last night.
Standard CS Sleepytime minty-lemongrassy-chamomile with an extra, untastable kick of valerian root.

Feels like the directions called for a way longer steep time than their regular Sleepytime.

The valerian did give me unusually vivid and odd dreams, but nothing freaky and nightmarish like I got with melatonin.

I was somewhat groggy this morning, but I did manage to shut my brain off and get to sleep a lot faster. Placebo effect or valerian, who knows.
But for the same amount of tea and cost, why not add the extra help?

Really enjoy this blend. Nice punch of vanilla, mint-chamomile blend is neither too strong or weak. Another winner from Celestial Seasonings.

I find this tea to be tart, more like a treat (not sure I’d say dessert) tea. I’ve only had it warm, but I think this would be an excellent cold brew tea, too.

I tend to not use any sweeteners in my teas so I lean towards a stronger flavor to compensate for this. I, also, have a love/hate relationship with Celestial Seasoning’s tea selections, however, this tea does not disappoint.

While it is not a favorite of mine, I would buy it again when in a pinch for a tea I know I will enjoy.

Rich and full bodied but don’t oversteep or it will get bitter. This is a lovely sweet tea, best served with half-and-half cream and sugar as a dessert. I do enjoy this tea but I don’t drink it every day as too much of it is cloying. It seems like it should be a Christmas tea. You can not do a second steep on the bags, as it just isn’t good.

Very pleasant blend chamomile and mint, best if let to steep for 4 minutes and sweetened with a tsp of honey or white sugar.

This is seriously a lovely blueberry tea and heck for the little amount of money it costs I am super stoked about it. It smells and tasty like a Tim Horton’s blueberry muffin, delicious! No strong tartness, very smooth and sweet tasting. I bet this will be fantastic as a cold brew.

You really can’t go wrong with these CS Herbals, so glad I got the sample pack.

This tea definitely smelled very peachy, I just wish it was a little stronger in my brew, maybe a tad more tart. I am definitely getting that peaches & cream oatmeal flavour that people are talking about. Worth a try, but don’t go out of your way or price range for this. Though it’s a nice change up, i probably won’t buy this blend in the future.

Not as flavorful as Harneys but better than Tea Republic. I definitely tasted the raspberry both hot and cold ( added a bit of Splenda).

Would drink it again in a pinch for sure.

Finally getting around to trying this Country Peach Passion that I got in the herbal set that I bought. The verdict is that I really like this tea, I enjoyed the mix between the peach and the orangey flavour what a great combo taste. Definitely reminds me of the Quaker instant Oatmeal flavour Peaches and Cream for sure. That being said its also very refreshing to drink and not heavy just a nice clean and calming peach tea.

Flavors: Orange, Peach

Bagged teas get a bad rap. Some of the Celestial seasonings herbals are my favourite for making iced tea. This one is great cold brewed overnight with some sugar added. :)

I couldn’t agree with you more and I am looking forward to trying this one cold.

this review is going to also be my review for the celestial seasonings regular sleepytime tea because im drinking this toe to toe with each other. 2 cups vanilla, then 2 cups regular. both of these teas are just so comforting. probably the vanilla a little more so, also smoother with the vanilla, but i am enjoying the directness of the regular over the vanilla right now. pretty sure i will have to give these both the same rating as it will come down to which i am in the mood for at the time.
