Review: The smell of this one is very peachy…and a little artificial.  We were expecting something intensely sweet and fruity – not so.  It actually doesn’t taste much of peach at all.  In fact, it doesn’t taste much of anything.  It’s a little watery, with a fake aftertaste, and a bit of tartness in the throat that just won’t go away.  It must be the citric acid thrown into the mix.

It’s not that we hate this one.  We just wouldn’t go out of our way to buy it.  You’re better off getting another cheap, generic tart tea – especially if you live in the UK, like we do, and you can only find this one online.

Celestial Seasonings Mandarin Orange Spice – Makes You Feel More Sane

Celestial Seasonings Mandarin Orange Spice - Reviewed at If Teacups Could Talk...Brand: Celestial Seasonings

Ingredients: Orange peel, hibiscus, roasted chicory, rosehips, blackberry leaves, chamomile, hawthorn, cinnamon, natural mandarin orange flavour with other natural flavours, cloves and coriander

Review: This is an old favourite of Three Tulsi’s from back when she was a teenager living in Arizona. Happily, you can buy it in the UK, where we’re based – bring on the tea nostalgia!

The aroma is very spicy, like an orange bursting with cloves.  It immediately makes you think of Christmas, and you can’t wait to start drinking it.

The taste doesn’t disappoint.  It’s not overly spicy.  Instead, it’s light, with a pleasantly fragrant orange flavour.  It’s soft, smooth and soothing – calming and warming – something you might like to drink whilst bundled up in blankets and sitting in front of a fire during the colder months.

Three Tulsi often drinks this one when the day has gone a bit haywire and she needs something to make her feel ‘a little more sane’.  The perfect wind-down tea – a definite must-have.

If you’re in the US, you should be able to find this one anywhere.  If you live outside the States, don’t worry; it’s available to order from many online shops.
