"I discovered Celestial tea with Bengal spice (5* for me) and liked it. I have ordered most of the Celestial teas and started with this one which was kind of disappointment: once after success of Bengal spice, second after opening and sniffing its great flavor. The taste was just missing..."
"This tea has an interesting mixture of fruit and spice flavors, like a fruity chai. The spice is like a mild and soft chai- no tannins, no bite, no overt heat. The fruit is akin to a juicy banana- the teamaster blends in a pepper that is sweet, juicy, and full of fruity-esters. It's worth a try. Needs no sweetener.
It doesn't deserve a permanent spot in my tea cabinet but I'm enjoying the one box I have."
"I enjoy drinking tea but when I purchased this one it blew my mind. The taste. smell was DELICIOUS!!! I know fresh tea is better but when one cannot afford that this is the next best thing and vitacost offers it much less than the stores. I have always shopped at vitacost and will continue to do so now and in the future!!"
"This tea is high in healthy antioxidants, PLUS, it really tastes great! Very refreshing. I like to combine it with some of the, uh, not too tasty teas like dandelion, green teas, etc. Being caffeine free makes it a perfect choice for late afternoon and evening."
"I love a good spicy tea and this one did not disappoint at all. I like to drink tea in the evening and was happy to see this was caffeine free. I love the hint of cherry in this, it's very subtle but it's there with other nutty notes as noted in the description. Great with a little milk or creamer..very unique flavor."
"This is a very nice spicy tea when you're in the mood for a sweeter finish, versus some chai spice type teas that require a lot of sweetening to be drinkable. This does not require much, if any, sweetening to be delicious. Highly recommend, with or without cream."
"This is one of Celestial Seasonings' best hot teas. Like all the others that are my favorites, the flavors are intense and splendidly mixed. The piquante pepper is a delightful surprise. If you've never had rooibos tea, give this one a try."
