3 Tasting Notes


My mom (Andriel) was lucky enough to attend a convention in Denver, CO a few months back. While she was in the city, she toured the Celestial Seasonings factory! (Um, jealous!) She brought back the Nutcracker Sweet for one of my Christmas gifts. I was reallllly sick with the flu over the holiday, so we celebrated the holidays in January. I just tried my new tea for the first time yesterday, and WHOA. I love this tea! I know a lot of the reviews were “ok,” but I love everything about it: The smell makes me feel like I am 7, staring at the Christmas tree in my pjs… The taste is sweet and almost creamy, without adding honey or milk. The color is pretty, and it is DEFINITELY making my work day better!

Thanks Mom!

Gee, I wish I could find a tea that made me feel like I a seven-year-old at Christmas! Glad you like it!


I feel this way about Nutcracker Sweet too! I’m excited to get some more when the snow starts falling…:)

I keep this as a back up at work, I think it tastes a lot better with honey and a splash of milk. It is a black tea, which normally I would steep for longer… but it gets a very “dry” texture if I steep it too long.

I keep this little jem in my desk at work. It is the perfect pick me up on a long work day! It smells AND tastes delicious, and has a great caffeine boost.

I moved to Indianapolis in August of 2005. I love the city, but I also make sure I get time away from the busy life! I drink tea nearly every day, and I can’t wait to share some of my favorites and find some new recommendations!
