Tea Reviews:
Celestial Seasonings - Nutcracker Sweet

I've said it before, and I'll say it again.  I love vanilla teas.  So this one, which also offered cinnamon and nut flavors, sounded really good.

Unfortunately, it didn't deliver.  Don't get me wrong; this is a good tasting tea.  But I didn't taste either the cinnamon or the nuts; just the vanilla and tea.  So, it tastes like most any other vanilla tea I've ever had.  Good, but nothing special.

Basically, if you like vanilla in tea, you'll probably like this; I know I'll have no difficulty drinking the rest of the box.  I take it with milk and sugar, as per usual.  Sweet and creamy, it's really quite nice.  I just wish the other flavors advertised had been present.  I do want to note that this tea is seasonal; so if you like it, keep that in mind.  But, there are lots of vanilla tea options out there, so not having access to this particular one isn't such a big deal.

In short:  Nice vanilla tea, but that's it.
