From Celestial Seasonings

Morning Thunder is an earthy combination of maté—a South American herb—and mountain-grown black tea that gives you the lift you need without the coffee jitters. Maté is traditionally shared at gatherings of friends and family, and is passed around in a hollowed-out gourd and drunk through a silver “straw” called a bombilla. Because both maté and black tea are rich in antioxidants, a cup of this robust brew is a healthful and exhilarating way to start your day.

Ingredients: Roasted maté and black tea.

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.

I admit, I purchased this tea today because of the picture of a bison on the box (I hate when I fall for marketing ploys like that!). I was curious to try this brand, so I decided to try a more basic flavor to start.
After the first sip, I immediately fell in love with this tea. It starts with a mellow black tea flavor, but soon follows with a distinct smokey flavor that lingers long after.
For a bagged tea, this one is not half bad. Prepared with milk and a pinch of sugar.
It looks like the bison pulled through for me!

I tried this one about a year ago, and I found it did give a decent kick. For a bagged, and especially for a Celestial Seasonings, I agree, this one’s decent.

This is a favorite tea, I don’t know why. In my opinion, it tastes like Lollicup’s boba milk tea. I drink 2-4 cups daily with a splash of soy and sweeten it.

Black tea plus mate, for a girl who can no longer drink coffee? What’s not to like?!

Had this once, hated it and took it into work to share.

I am sure that based on what I know now about teas there is a good chance I skortched the tea with water that was too hot and that is what made it undrinkable.

This stuff was pretty terrible, I couldn’t even finish it and the rest of the box went unused. I like a lot of Celestial Seasonings’ teas, but this one made my tastebuds recoil. Maybe something was wrong with it.

I needed a new tea for the office and thought I’d try out the infamous Morning Thunder from Seinfeld. The roasted, smoky flavor is really intriguing. It made me feel quite alert yet relaxed at the same time if that’s possible. I’m definitely developing a taste for maté.

Love it. Cannot get enough of this tea. I use it to pick me up and energize me during my afternoon slumps. I like it steeped strong with lots of sugar.

I was looking for a bold morning brew to wake up my senses. This didn’t disappoint. It tastes like someone left a few morsals of dirt in my mouth after drop kicking me in the face…which isn’t necessarily a bad thing. It doesn’t make me smile, but few things do in the a.m. Hey, it’s cheaper than Red Bull!

This is an interesting tasting tea. It kind of reminds me of coffee, even though it tastes nothing like coffee (it also kind of reminds me of Irish Breakfast tea). I forgot I was making the tea and accidentally steeped it for about 15 minutes. I would call the flavor robust, but yet not too strong. Has a pleasant, lingering aftertaste and a nice roasted flavor. I’m not sure if it really energized me, this was my third black tea of the day. Prepared with almond milk and splenda.
