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.

This tea is my favourite amongst Celestial’s Holiday Tea collection!
It has a fun and heart-warming taste and makes me wanna watch the Nutcracker movie from 2010.
Great tea!

I was intrigued to discover this tea since ive never come across a pear tea before; had to buy it.
No regrets! Its delicious and delicate and has no overpowering “fake” taste to it (like vanilla or fake fruityness).

So I bought this to complete my Celestial Holiday Tea Collection.
Teabag smelled great but it warned me that it was going to be a quite sweet tea.
Readybrew was an utter disappointment, if this is what sugarcookies taste like I most certainly dont like them!
Cant remember what it tasted like and im not up for brewing me a cup to find an appropriate description, but I can say this much: gross.

I am not sure about if adding vanilla to Sleepytime improves it or not. It is still good but the vanilla smooths over the overall flavor which makes the rest of the herbs harder to taste, although it also adds a bit of sweetness into the mix.

Chai tea is my favorite and this is such a great chai blend. I like having it with a bit of french vanilla creamer. It’s so yummy!

I never thought I’d find a chamomile that I’d like; the smell is usually way too overpowering to me. Well, I was very wrong; this tea is a decent mix of sweet honey, fragrant vanilla, and chamomile. Naturally sweet, but not too much.

Randomly saw this in my pantry and brewed some up. To me, the taste is very close to watered-down Throat Coat while chewing Double Mint gum. It’s not a “bad” taste profile…but I wouldn’t consider drinking it every night to go to sleep. Plus, the flavors only come out if you steep the bag more than 10 minutes. Not a big fan of this whole “waiting” thing.

Upside though: there’s a bear on the packaging.

I think this makes a good ice tea (for being a bagged tea), in fact one time I put my mug on the floor by my chair and when I looked down my puppy was taking a few licks! She NEVER drinks from anything except her waterbowl, so she must of thought it was good as well =)

Very appropriate for winter evenings, especially if there’s a book and a fleece throw involved. Purring cat optional.
Tastewise, the plum really doesn’t come through. It smells like it should, but the flavor disappoints just a bit. Nice cinnamon and cardamom, but a bit acidic for my taste. Could stand to be a bit richer. Still, a nice tea for the price and convenience.
