To me, this is sickeningly sweet.

hmm this is oddly accurate. Lots of creamy vanilla, cakey flavours (a lot of vanilla sugar cookies), and quite a bit of citrus. I can taste mostly lemon, maybe hints of orange (like orange rind used in winter desserts). This would make a killer latte, because holy cow is this ever delicious and creamy on its own.

I had this one last night as a warm-me-up-before-bed tea, and I decided not to sweeten it, just to see what it tastes like plain. I was actually not disappointed! The butteriness came through quite nicely, with overtones of vanilla and almond. More like a shortbread than a sugar cookie, but that’s probably just because I didn’t sweeten it. I like this tea because it’s rather different than any of the other herbals on my shelf… speaking of which, my one-year-old is getting into them.
Hmm, this tea had been on my radar for awhile but I never bought it. I always saw it at the grocery store but always had too much tea to justify buying it. Haha, I still have way too much tea but what the heck, I just bought it anyway. #neverenoughtea
Ok, I’ll stop rambling now. I thought this one was a little weird. It was more citrus than I was expecting and leaves a really odd aftertaste.
I will have to steep again before making my final decision.
Sipdown 59/375! Okay so now my cupboard’s up-to-date!
This was imo another great caffeine-free tea from Celestial Seasonings. It was sweet (I accidentally added sugar once. Big nope.) and thick and soothing and I wish I could remember more about it to give a more detailed note. If CS were available in the UK I would definitely stock up on a few of their herbal blends.
Thank you so much to the incredible Marzipan for sending this to me. You’re a star!
I loved the idea of this, and while it did indeed have a “sugar cookie” taste, it was way too cloying for me. It almost tasted like drinking butter. However, the friend I tried it with enjoyed it, so I don’t think it’s inherently bad, just depends on your personal taste/preferences.

December 1st! Hard to believe eh? A colleague brought in treats and holiday teas today. This one really surprised me. It’s quite rich and buttery, and smells wonderful brewed up. Like seriously, warm fresh baked from the oven sugar cookie wafting aroma. It tastes pretty bang on too. Sugar cookies are a quintessential part of the holidays for me. I’m going to have to pick up a box of these! We also got a nice start to December choosing a picture to post by our desk that reminds us of Christmas. I chose the cranky mall elves and Santa from The Christmas Story movie – a holiday-must-watch each year for me!
