56 Tasting Notes
I’m not normally a fan of citrusy teas, but I like grapefruit, so I thought I’d try this. Unfortunately, whether or hot or cold, this just tastes . . . weird. I guess there is a bit of a grapefruit taste, but I don’t find that it mixes well with the green tea flavor. I’d rather have some grapefruit juice.
After drinking Celestial Seasonings’ Gingerbread Spice holiday tea, I looked up the line of products on their website and saw that they had one called Sugar Cookie Sleigh Ride. This sounded pretty delicious, and so began the search for this tea in grocery stores. I finally found it in a grocery store in Aledo, Texas, while on Christmas vacation.
The tea does have a sugar cookie and vanillay flavor. It’s a bit sweet already, so I wouldn’t recommend adding more than half a packet of sweetener at the most. While I do think this tea tastes like what it claims to taste like, I’m not actually sure if I like it all that much. It’s a bit too sweet and buttery in flavor. I certainly couldn’t drink more than one cup of this.
Not a terrible tea, but I probably wouldn’t buy it again after this box runs out. (If I ever manage to drink it all . . .)
