Spot of Tea: Celestial Seasonings Sleepytime Vanilla Tea
Celestial Seasonings fan favorite Sleepytime Tea has a new companion: Sleepytime Vanilla. The vanilla is a subtle addition to the traditional combination of chamomile, spearmint, and lemongrass.
If you're a fan of the regular Sleepytime and a bit wary of vanilla flavor, this tea will be right up your alley. The flavor is close to the original, with the subtle addition of a slightly nutty vanilla note. The aroma is more vanilla-rich than the flavor, which leans more toward the bright spearmint and earthy chamomile.
This smooth herbal tea isn't for those who like their vanilla potent, but it's definitely a relaxing spin on a spot of tea we already enjoy.
