|"Smells like a bakery filled with fresh baked muffins... I would purchase this tea again."|
When I first removed the bag, I was pleasantly surprised by the aroma which was both spicy and sweet. Once finished brewing, the tea was a very attractive amber hue, which again surprised me as I expected anything supplying the type of caffeine kick I was anticipating to be a dark black beverage. I first tried Fast Lane plain and while it smelled like I was spending the morning in the middle of a bakery filled with fresh baked muffins, I didn't really notice much of a sweetness to the flavor. That being said, I do generally add a bit of sweetener to my tea. After adding a little organic Turbinado, this tea was actually quite good, and yes, after little more than ½ a cup, I was beginning to feel the fog in my head clear!
I would purchase this tea again, for just the type of morning I had today. I would have given the tea a higher score, but in general I am not a big fan of Celestial Seasonings storage system. When using teabags, I prefer them to be individually wrapped so that they are easier to pop into my bag for travel. Individually wrapped bags also seem to stay fresher for a longer period of time in my estimation.
