Pretty standard stuff, Not super big on lemon tea on it’s own, especially while hot but not bad.

I’m not sure who this tea would appeal to, I didn’t make it past a couple sips before dumping it.

I’m not sure where to start. I’m overwhelmed by the ginger and while I taste the maple it doesn’t balance the ginger out. There’s supposed to be a balance of spicy and sweet and all I got was no and no.

The flavors don’t taste as I want or expect. Yes, I taste ginger. Yes, I taste maple. Yes, they taste the way they should but, yet, they don’t if that makes sense? There’s something off to me and it was enough off that I opted to dump the cup of tea something I’ve only done once before (with gunpowder tea).

This tea is leaving my house ASAP.

I’m really into this. It smells like playdoh and I love that but it’s also really tasty. I had a cup last night and had one again in the afternoon today. I don’t what it is about it specifically that has me keep wanting it. It’s a unique flavor.

Based on the smell of this tea bag I was expecting it to be overwhelmingly strong but it’s actually not. It’s very nice. It’s one that’s enjoyable as it cools. Had it with sugar and some milk.

I love Gingerbread but I’m not entirely sold on this tea yet. It’s strong when you let it steep enough but I still am not quite getting the flavor I want. I tried it with sugar and brown sugar. I think with some milk I can maybe get it to a place I want. I got a whole box of this and will have to keep trying different things.

Flavors: Cinnamon, Ginger

A nice warm cup on a rainy day. Nothing in the flavour profile other than an average chamomile. Typical hay, lemony/citrus notes, and a slightly vegetal dried flower taste.

This is my top favorite herbal tea. I think it’s seasonal, or they discontinued it or something, as I haven’t been able to find it again anywhere. I adore the toasted chicory flavor. It’s kind of nutty and I vastly prefer it to rooibos as an herbal tea base. It takes milk nicely, and has a strong cinnamon sweet flavor. This is my very last bag, so this is a sad sipdown.

I often say that Celestial Seasonings rarely surprises me. This is one time they have! I love their Sugar Plum Spice Tea!

I’ve tried this tea both as a hot brew and cold brew and can say that I prefer this tea warmed. It draws out the flavors in a more complimentary way whereas a cold brew makes it sweet, but in an unpleasant way. It’s like sipping on cold sweetened cinnamon water. Not festive or refreshing!

As a hot brew, though, I thoroughly enjoy this tea! I tend to steep this tea at 190 degrees for 5 minutes but am, often, lazy about removing the bag from the cup as I like the continued flavorings the tea imparts so some steeps have gone on for 15-20 minutes. Sometimes it will develop a bit of a tart aftertaste, which I enjoy, but it never makes for an undrinkable cup. I’ve been known to make a new brew with a new bag without removing the prior bag. Sometimes my brew can have upwards of three tea bags in a cup from me not removing the prior brew’s bag. When I notice the brew getting too tart I discard the bags and start the process again. If not obvious, I tend to drink several cups of this tea when I do make it.

Another quality about this tea I enjoy is that it is sweet enough that it doesn’t require me to add sweeteners or milk. On a few occasions I’ll add a bit of sweetener whenever my piled up tea bags create a more tart than sweet taste. Fortunately, this tea is very forgiving so removing the tea bags and adding a little sweetener easily remedies the tart flavor.

Finally, I really enjoy the scents of the tea, too. The fruit scent with hints of cinnamon and hibiscus I pick up on, but, thankfully, the ginger is not. I think the cinnamon could be masking the smell for me, which is good as I tend to not like teas with a ginger flavor or aroma.

Again, this is by far one of my favorite Celestial Seasoning offerings and one that will be a frequent visitor in my tea cupboard.

I have to say I’m probably a bit biased here seeing as I’m a Georgia boy born and bred but I absolutely adored this tea, I actually reused the same teabag two days in a row to make sure I’d gotten everything I could out of it!
