Summer, eating peach pie while sitting on the ground. The peach is a little sharp in the aroma but it smooths out when I take a sip. The pastry-like flavor ties together the peach fruitiness with the earthier tone of matcha and gentle sweetness of green tea. There are recommendations on the package for brewing both hot and iced. I only had it hot, and it’s best before it cools completely.
If you like Celestial Seasonings’ Country Peach Passion, imagine it with a green tea base.
Pretty good bagged tea.

I’m enjoying this one! There’s some mint and some dessertiness from the white chocolate. It’s definitely a mild flavor, but I liked it! I couldn’t really taste the base tea, which was fine with me. I had it with a bit of milk, and if it were herbal, I’d probably add this tea to my rotation. It’s mild, but solid. I’m glad the TTB gave me a chance to try it!

Not gonna lie, I thought this was an herbal tisane and probably steeped it too hot and too long. Oh well!
Well, it’s not bitter, which is impressive. But it’s not great either. The combination of the mint with a touch of cinnamon in cardamom is interesting. But the mint has a bit too much of an herbal flavor for me. The white chocolate also tastes more like regular chocolate flavoring, which we all know is not my favorite.
So meh, it’s not for me.
Flavors: Artificial, Autumn Leaf Pile, Cardamom, Chocolate, Cinnamon, Hay, Herbaceous, Mint, Peppermint
Honestly, I can’t tell much difference between this and regular Sleepytime. It feels a little cooler in the mouth from that sweet and strong Pacific northwest peppermint. Mint forward but balanced by florals and citrusy lemongrass.
Flavors: Citrusy, Floral, Hay, Herbaceous, Lemongrass, Peppermint, Salty, Spearmint, Sweet
A gift from Devon Bartholomew in honor of Random Acts of Kindness Day. I had wanted to try this one before buying a full box and Devon kindly offered to send me a bag to sample. I’m glad I did try it first because it’s not really my thing. I don’t taste any caramel, only an artificial apple candy flavor and that familiar dusty quality I always get from hot hibiscus. I’m glad to try it though and mark it off my wishlist. Thanks, Devon!
Flavors: Apple Candy, Artificial, Dust
I remember enjoying the box of this I finished a few years ago and recently had the chance to grab this single bag to drink. It’s probably somewhat nostalgia, but I’m enjoying it! The spices are warming and pleasant. There’s a fair amount of sweetness, so I probably could have gotten away with not sweetening my cup. To be honest, I wouldn’t mind grabbing a box of this as a work tea sometime in the future. It’s a perfectly serviceable chai, honestly better than lots of more expensive ones I’ve had.
What can be said that hasn’t been already? It’s not elegant, refined, subdued, understated—and that’s the point. I can’t think of a tea that’s a bigger ‘f*** you’ to subtlety than Cinnamon Apple Spice, which puts ‘cinnamon’ first in the name because it wallops you in the olfactory from the second you pour the water over. You could put some sweetener in this to soften the punchy taste of apple and hibiscus or to round out the bite of eye-watering cinnamon, but why? Wild horses shouldn’t be tamed. Just enjoy the ride.
Flavors: Apple, Cinnamon
I think this is the last of my wedding party favors.
I poured boiling water over the bag and let the teabag stay. Wow, the blueberry smell from the brewed cup is amazing.
I mainly taste blueberry, with some sour candy notes that are probably from the hibiscus. I suppose some people might be put off by the sour candy, but I love it. It’s amazing that this tastes so much like candy while having no sugar or sweetener. I may have to buy more of this!
Flavors: Blueberry, Candy, Hibiscus, Sour
(Skip this part if you just would like to get to the tea note)
My bad health ‘day’ has lasted a little over a week now basically right around the time classes resumed. So I’ve switched to just drinking herbals mainly for the meantime. This past year I was finally going to try and see some new specialists to problem solve my chronic pain/health issues etc. Then Covid hit and I was informed that the medical offices were closing temporarily only doing zoom call appointments. So my waitlist spot is back at the beginning again.
This is one of my go to I’m not feeling good teas. It’s one that I grew up drinking even before I had decided I liked tea. This is a good vanilla mint cheap herbal tea. It’s creamy even without milk added and the chamomile works really well with the other flavors. Love this one. I often rotate between the original Sleepytime tea and the Vanilla one.
Flavors: Creamy, Hay, Spearmint, Vanilla
This is another wedding party favor. I poured boiling water over the teabag and left it in.
It was pretty good hot, but I liked it better once it cooled off, and I added ice.
This is a real fruit punch of an herbal. The hibiscus stands out nicely and balances well with the raspberry. Sweet and sour. If you don’t like hibiscus, this probably isn’t your cup of tisane. Oh, I wonder how well it would do, steeped in a lemonade. Mmm.
It tastes kind of like hanging out at a nude beach when there’s no pandemic going on, very relaxing.
Flavors: Candy, Fruit Punch, Hibiscus, Raspberry, Sour
1 bag for 250mL water @100C, steeped 8 minutes.
It takes a while to get many tisanes to taste of anything at all, and the risk with a long steep and a fruit tisane from Celestial Seasonings is giving space for that bully, hibiscus.
In this blend, hibiscus is fairly far down the ingredients list. Rosehips shine here, and the peach aroma is quite convincing, if the flavour a little less so. Still, I really like it, and it’s definitely cheap to buy and easy to make. I think I’ll toss a bag of this into a pot of steeping black tea and see what I get.
