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.
Flavors: Cherry, Hibiscus, Orange, Orange Zest, Strawberry
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
Flavors: Cherry, Fruit Punch, Fruity, Lime
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.
Flavors: Fruity, Hibiscus, Lime
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?
Flavors: Lemon, Lemongrass, Spearmint

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.
Flavors: Fruity, Tart
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.
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.
Flavors: Blueberry, Cake, Hibiscus, Sweet
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.
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
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.
