Today was exhausting. I got a haircut and we picked up Settlers of Catan.. all fun things. But this lack of oxygen just tires me out.
As promised, here is a review of the 3 teas Code Boyfriend and I liked so much we brought home from the Celestial Seasonings factory tour.
Tropical Fruit Cool Brew Iced Tea
This is, clearly, from their cool brew line.
Look at that deep, red color. It tasted like cran-apple juice, which is always a good thing in my book. It was also very refreshing, like the entire zinger line.
I loved this tea, but Code Boyfriend was not a huge fan. The flavor just isn’t strong enough for him.
Sleepytime Kids – Goodnight Grape
I’m not going to lie, as I poured this tea into my cup, I was expecting it to taste like cold medicine.
It was shockingly true to it’s name. It tastes like Sleepytime with a hint of grape. Fruity, with all of the same Sleepytime calming powers. It is also very sweet. I drank mine without any sweetener and had to go back and make sure there was no sugar in it!
I think this would be a very easy sell for a sick child, or a sick Code Boyfriend who has a cold but doesn’t want tea because it doesn’t taste like anything.
Even though it is marketed as a kid’s drink, Code Boyfriend and I both thought it was amazing enough to need to come home.
There you are! All of the new teas we tried at Celestial Seasonings. I hope this gave you the insight you needed to spring for a new box the next time you buy tea.
