One of my absolute FAVORITE teas. This tea is just sweet enough to help bring out the peppermint, and the balance is perfect. I love this tea anytime of the year! Extra bonus is that it’s a caffeine free green tea, so you can enjoy it late at night!

A beautiful and fairly strong minty tea with a little bit of sweetness and warmth from the vanilla and cinnamon. I appreciate the strength of the peppermint in the tea, but I like how it is tempered by the other flavors. Perfect for Christmas, but delightful year round.

I love Celestial Seasonings Peppermint, so I knew I would love this one too!

It smelled wonderful as I first opened the box, like a very sugary candy cane, but as it steeped, I mostly picked up the obvious peppermint smell. The taste wasn’t as minty or sweet as I thought it’d be, but it was still very good. The most obvious, though subtle, flavors were mint, vanilla, cinnamon, and a hint of green tea.

I think I still prefer Celestial Seasonings other mint tea, but I won’t pass this up when I see it during the holidays. I’d definitely recommend it to others.

Year Round favorite. I love that its green, doesn’t require sweetener and never gets bitter no matter how long you leave in the tea bag. Decaf is easy on my stomach as well. Smells so delicious

It’s good at what it does, if that makes sense. It does taste candy-cane like (not just peppermint), and I really like finding a decaf green tea. I love real teas, but have to tightly restrict my caffeine intake, so decaf is always a good find. It’s a forgiving brew as well, seeming to taste pretty much the same with warmer or cooler water and all different steeping times. I don’t taste much of a cinnamon flavor, at least nothing obtrusive and artificial. It does taste pretty sweet to me even without adding anything else to it, and my daughter (8) loves it. There’s just something about it I don’t love, and I can’t quite put my finger on it. For the price and convenience, it’s definitely worth it if the description appeals to you. Even though it isn’t my thing, I can still understand why many people really love it.

This tea is delicious! It doesn’t just taste like straight up peppermint. It has some of the creamy quality a candy cane has. It is nice it has no caffeine so I can drink it at night.

I bought a box of this last week when I finished up my Twinings Peppermint bags. I remembered that it received satisfactory and downright glowing reviews here on Steepster a few years ago, and decided to try it out.

Now that I have – a few times now – I find that I don’t particularly care for it. Its odor reminds me of potpurri and tasting it reinforces the image in my mind (not that I know what potpurri tastes like…). Adding at least two teaspoons of sugar helps me get it down but I’m trying to consume less sugar, so that’s not really that helpful.

I have 18 bags left and I think it might end up being pushed to the back of the cupboard (there will be a post going up in the swap category soon if you’re interested in taking some/all of this off my hands).

Today is such a yuck day, yuck, yuck, yuck! I went shopping for noms this morning after not getting much sleep (it has been one of those weeks) and progressively felt ickier as the day went on. Not wanting to abandon the blog without a post today, I decided to have a little bit of easy fun.

So I was included in Influenster’s #FrostyVoxBox, a box of really cool products to try out and review (you guys have probably seen me feature past boxes if you have been reading a while) usually I do all of it in one big review, but since one of the things included with it was tea, well, I had to do it separately. Celestial Seasonings Candy Cane Lane Green Tea Decaffeinated, a holiday tea straight out of my memories. This is a blend of peppermint, decaffeinated green tea, orange peel, natural vanilla and mint flavors with other natural flavors, cinnamon, milk thistle, blackberry leaves, roasted carob, roasted chicory, and vanilla bean, and since it is a tea bag, it is the exact level of easy I am in the mood for on this most blah of days. So I know when I was younger I would drink a lot if Celestial Seasonings teas, but I cannot remember if I ever drank this one, fun adventure time, maybe! The aroma of the tea is minty and vanill-y (Minty Vanilli, the holiday themed Milli Vanilli comeback was also lip-synced) a little sweet, and a little papery from the bag. One of the tragedies of teabags is they can smell and taste like the bag, but you do at times make sacrifices for being lazy.

One thing I will give the packaging credit for, it does not say to use boiling water, in fact it says using cooler water with green tea will result in a smoother, more delicate flavor. Yay! Certain other bagged tea companies say boil everything, and people wonder why some people think green tea is bitter gross death. The aroma of the tea is minty and mellow, with vanilla and a roasted undertone along with a tiny hint of sugar cookies. The mint is the primary aroma, but it is not a kick in the face of mint.

The taste is not bad, it is minty and sweet with a hint of vanilla and honey and a slight bit of a roasted taste at the end. The green tea base is really generic, I am not sure how to describe it other than ‘generic bagged green tea I have been drinking since I was a kid’ taste. It is a really mild tea, the mint is cooling, but other than that there is nothing really powerful about it, I do not want to say it tastes watered down, but it does certainly lack oomph. Since this is a decaf tea, I can see this being a tea I could drink before bed or when I feel icky…the tastes are mellow, the mint cools my guts and clears my nose, and the warmth just feels good. In fact I am going to take the rest of this cup and go lay in bed while playing some Minecraft.
