Green Tea Matcha from Celestial Seasonings

Style: Green Tea – Region: ?????

80 / 100 Aroma: 8/10 Flavor: 4/5 Value: 5/5
Apr. 7th, 2019

I’ve decided to try a few blends of matcha with other green tea and started with this brand. Given that I’ve never been overwhelmingly impressed with Celestial Seasonings, it was better than expected!

Though it cannot take the place of an actual matcha craving, the addition of matcha added a bit of sweetness and...

This herbal tea is pretty good. I detect a little bitterness, but the vanilla helps. It's a pretty smooth drink, and it made two decent cups. People who really like chamomile will likely enjoy this one.

Oooh, tasty! A non-caffeinated chai that's a lovely balance of spicy and sweet, with enough complexity to be interesting. It tastes like a red hot candy without the heat. It should be a dessert tea, I think. Easily the most impressed I've been with Celestial Seasonings so far.

As someone who greatly prefers peppermint over spearmint, this tea was notably less offensive than I expected. In fact, it isn't even bad. If toning down spearmint gum and putting it in drink form sounds good to you, you'll enjoy this one. It isn't a favorite of mine, but that's due to personal taste rather than qualit...

As somebody who dislikes plain chamomile in general--I was surprised that it wasn't bad! Not delicious, but not bitter or otherwise unpleasant. Totally acceptable as a cheap bag of chamomile.

Hmm, this tea is quite interesting. I'd call it my second favorite chamomile-based tea so far (after the Lemon Chamomile by Numi). The flavors added are sweet in a rather creamy way, and it tastes pretty good--not amazing, but solid. There is none of the bitterness I often associate with chamomile.

However, very odd...

Not the best hibiscus tea I've had, but quite solid. The hibiscus and lemon are both there without one overpowering the other. When you want a moderately tart tea that isn't very expensive, this would be a good choice. I enjoyed both Tropical Hibiscus (by Simply Balanced) and Passion (the full leaf version, by Tazo) b...

Not too bad, but nothing to rave about. Straightforward peppermint, so if that's what you're craving it certainly works. I would enjoy it if in the mood for non-sweet peppermint, but otherwise it's underwhelming.

I would add that, though I don't know why, the second cup was superior to the first.

Not as bad as I was worried this one would be. It's not a favorite, just because I tend to peter other fruit flavors, but it's certainly drinkable--a mixture of tart and sweet. I think cherry like this works best mixed with other flavors.

Now this has become not only my favorite by Celestial Seasonings, but also my favorite tea involving chamomile--which normally I dislike. Here the chamomile is subtle and well-blended with the other flavors. The peach is also nice, and the tea has the right level of sweetness. In short, I like this one. :-D

This is my favorite of Celestial Seasonings's offerings so far. Sweet, tangy, and straightforwardly fruity are how I'd describe this one. It has a bit of the "Jolly Rancher" candy flavor to it, but isn't excessive with the sweetness. I think the tartness evens out the sweetness much better for this tisane than it did f...

I have mixed feelings about this one. The aroma reminds me exactly of a Jolly Rancher, which is great as a candy but strikes me as too intensely sweet and artificially-fruity for a whole drink. As I sip the drink, it's grown on me a bit. I think the hibiscus probably helps cut the sweetness. It's still not really right...

Not bad! Lightly tart and simply blueberry, I enjoy this one. There's really nothing else going for it, but if you're in the mood for a straightforward fruit tea, it fits the bill. As people mentioned, the smell is more robust than the flavor. I tried this with milk and it made a decent (but not amazing) latte.

I like the simplicity of this tea, but was ultimately underwhelmed. It lacks any distinct or robust flavors.
