I am actually surprised. This came from a k-cup. It came with my Keurig and I was like meh, I got this to make coffee because every once in awhile I want some and I waste coffee beans, plus I like variety and it was more cost effective for me in that coffee realm. Everyone I know is a coffee drinker so if they’re over I got them covered easily!
So it always made sense to me that it’d work well to make coffee, but to me it was bizarre for tea. Like, I really didn’t think it could make an okay cup of tea at all because of how quick it is, I thought I would get some slightly golden colored water that slightly tasted like tea. Finally tonight I gave into my curiosity about it and made it. I was impressed how dark it turned out and how it actually tasted like most of the breakfast tea I had while studying abroad in France.

So of course I had to open it up and look at it afterwards because it felt so much lighter than the coffee ones. It’s basically like a 2-3x as filled tea bag in a cup so I guess it works. I wouldn’t ever go out of my way to buy actually buy these, but if it works for some people, then it works!

It’s nice in a pinch. A descent black tea. not offensive and definitely worth trying if you are at a restaurant and want a black tea.

Not bad considering I got it from a dinning hall. It wasn’t particularly exciting but it is a nice basic black tea. I enjoyed.

Sometimes I forget Celestial Seasonings does anything but herbal teas. This one (a tad past its prime) was on the “out-of-date-please-buy-it-ridiculously-cheap” cart at the local indie grocery and I snagged it for work. Even slightly past due, this is a decently balanced “just tea.” Not too sharp or acidic, not beastly bitter after letting it go cold. Drinkable without milk. All pluses for my messy day job desk.


I am guilty if the same! Reading you note here I went…hey, they do, don’t they?


CS has 3 new caffeinated teas at my local store. They advertise on the box as having as much caffeine as a cup of coffee. Green, black and a different? English breakfast.


I also associate Celestial Seasonings with herbal teas! Glad their English Breakfast is good.


Yes, our clearance table also included a Celestial Seasonings super-caffeinated morning tea (Energy Tea), and probiotic black and green teas. I passed, but I’m now wishing I’d snagged one of the probiotics.

The running theme of these Celestial Seasonings packets I got for Christmas is that they are not exceptional, not bad, mostly forgettable.
That makes them perfect work tea.
This was a bit too astringent for my tastes, but not enough to make it undrinkable. Still, I am glad I only have one packet of it!
A small sipdown.

St. Elias Specialty Hospital in Anchorage, Alaska, serves this alongside cocoa and coffee in Keurig cups. I reused my mum’s k-cup (because I’m devious), and the second brewing was actually pretty dark and tasty. The only bad thing is that I reused my coffee cup, too, and got some coffee taste in there, so I couldn’t get a really good taste of the tea (hence no rating). I haven’t seen black teas from Celestial Seasonings where I live, so I’m going to seek them out next time I go to the store.

This is my first tea review on someone else’s tea. I hope I do this right, kind of stepping out of my box since I mostly drink my own teas and have a hard time trying others. I was at Pagosa Hot Springs Colorado this past weekend and this was one of the offered tea’s. I am not a big fan of tea bag tea but it was available, free and I was very much wanting a black tea. I thought the color turned out ok and the aroma felt black tea. I read the ingredients and it said “black tea” which makes me wonder “what kind of black tea”? I drank the tea but did not finish the cup. I felt it had a harshness and bitter aftertaste and was not as smooth as other black tea’s I have had. But again, I am not a tea bag fan and it was a complimentary tea. I understand why hotels and restaurants use tea bags…they are convenient. I would not buy this tea but for a tea bag free tea it wasn’t that bad. It was a lesson learned in that I need to bring my own tea along with Tea-sacs next trip.

It’s tasty! Not as good as Twinings English Breakfast, but it’s good in a pinch.
