I just discovered this tea today- perfectly minty with a fantastic honey undertaste- relaxing and fantastic. I also learned today that it was discontinued something like two years ago. Bugger all….

Well, it’s… okay. And nothing really more than okay. The sweet lemon flavor is strong enough, especially in the aroma, the taste is a bit artificial.

It’s not undrinkable. I finished a box today after several months. But I doubt I’ll ever buy it again. But I can recommend this if you love artificial lemon, have a sore throat, or need to entertain guests that you aren’t particularly fond of.

I’ve had this many times now and so far it’s been pretty hard to mess up. Maybe once I tasted a very, very slight bitterness, but that was all. Note that I steep it very carefully, not even for 2 minutes.

I found out this morning that it is a mistake to drink this after eating Cream of Wheat with brown sugar in it.

I followed Tea4Me’s instructions and steeped for just one minute. It has a light, delicate flavor that doesn’t need much sugar. I could taste both the pear and the vanilla. I’m going to be enjoying this very much this spring. =)

It says on the box not to get the water to boiling and to only steep for 2 minutes. Surely the only reason this tea is being rated as bitter is because it’s being steeped too long. I’m used to steeping my teas for more than five minutes, so I wasn’t expecting much with only a minute, but it really is enough time. The tea isn’t meant to be strong anyway.

I love this tea. It is the perfect before bed blend. I’m a big sucker for mint and this is the perfect fix without being too strong. As the other reviewers have been saying, it’s ideal for winding down, especially if you’re sipping it in bed while reading a book.

I’ll start off by saying that this is a Celestial Seasonings tea that I buy regularly and drink often. So naturally, I find it very enjoyable.

I usually drink this in the mornings when I need a little energy. It never jolts or makes me feel dehydrated the way that coffee sometimes does. The flavor is incredibly mellow and earthy, just like the reassuring little buffalo on the box. I prefer it with a splash of milk (and maybe a pinch of sugar if I really want to go nuts), but it’s alright without. It’s not the highest quality of black tea or mate, but for the price and convenience it’s hard to do better.

This tea is good on its own, but add a tsp of sugar and everything just magnifies. If you are looking an overall great experience with this tea add milk too and you get an awesome sweet creamy goodness party in your mouth.

I’m just a little afraid of this. I’ve had chamomile tea in a bag before, but the loose tea was just too much. I’ve decided that I need to taste the rest of the tea in my possession, so I thought I would try it again in the bag.

The smell of the tea bags is like the loose tea, but not nearly as strong. I’m brewing this in my three cup pot.

First cup: A lovely, almost golden color. The smell is sweet, unlike the loose tea. Starting to feel a little better about this. First sip — can taste the vegetation but it’s not nearly as intense.

Second cup: Pretty much as the first. I wish I had brought the honey with me, but I usually don’t put honey in my chamomile. For some reason, I feel overly sensitive to the taste. I keep expecting to take a sip and get that horrible cabbage like taste I got from the loose chamomile flowers. I’m not sure why, but I do.

There will be no third cup. I used to like chamomile just on its own, but not anymore. Especially, since I usually find something far more tasty and exciting in my tea cup nowadays.

I love cabbage, but my only experience with chamomile left me with a terrible laundry soap taste. As such, I can’t convince myself to even try again. There is chamomile in one David’s Tea that I drink, but even that I don’t like all that much.

I just realized this is like drinking Big Red gum…only with apples.

I think this is the kind of tea you either love or hate. Some people have commented that was too strong. For starters, no one should be buying Celestial Seasonings if they don’t like their tea strong! I found the tea enjoyable, though I may steep it a little less next time. Maybe it’s because my taste buds are so adapted to chai tea that spices aren’t as overwhelming as they once were. Simply put, this is a tea for people who like strong spicy teas. It wasn’t as good as other teas I’ve had, but it certainly wasn’t as bad as I feared from some of the comments here.

Had an opportunity to try this tea this weekend. I decided to steep it in hot milk to make kind of a gingerbread latte. It wasn’t very strong but that was probably due to the milk. I was definitely getting a gingerbread flavor! It was nice a warming on a chilly February afternoon.

While I never tried Sleepytime and Sleepytime Extra side-by-side the taste difference is minimal as it does not come off as any difference in the cup. But watch out as a single cup of Sleeptime Extra is much quicker acting than two cups of Sleeptime, so I would only recommend drinking this if you are ready to go to sleep very soon.

Celestial Seasonings is a brand that I am never exactly wowed by, but it’s also hard to be disappointed by a bagged tea that you bought for three bucks at a supermarket chain. You know exactly what you’re getting into.

In this case, I would call it pretty enjoyably over all. Heavy on the chamomile and very sweet, but also incredibly soothing on a sore throat or a stressed mind. It’s a good evening tea to unwind with when you don’t want to break the budget.

Picked another box of this at my local grocery store. I really enjoy drinking
this after a meal, the peppermint comes through first followed by a creaminess that is very satisfying.

I really like this one. Green tea that is not grassy and the sweet hit of peppermint. Perfect after dinner. Too bad this is seasonal…must stock up.

Nice green tea with vanilla notes on the finish.
I will be looking to buy another box come Thanksgiving/Christmas time.
Nicely done for a bagged tea.
