Another of the Celestial Seasonings Holiday Teas, Sugar Cookie Sleigh Ride. Like Candy Cane Lane, this one is released each year for the holidays and can be found at Bulk Barn. I think this leans a little more shortbread than pure sugar cookie, but the sweet taste is there and a great low calorie alternative to a cookie. It smells just like sugar cookies though! This one is his favourite of the Celestial Seasonings Holiday Teas so we have picked up a few boxes as it sells out quickly every year.
Celestial Seasonings Sugar Cookie Sleigh Ride Ingredients and Steeping Instructions
Ingredients: Milk Thistle, Roasted Barley, Orange Peel, Natural Flavours, Vanilla Bean (Caffeine Free)
Steeping Instructions: Use one tea bag per 8oz of boiling water. Steep for 4-6 minutes. I personally found it is better to bring the water almost, but not quite, to a boil and steep for 3-4 minutes. Too long and it tastes too orangey and not cookie-ish. Sweetening and adding milk makes the buttery cookie taste come out a little more too.

This caffeine free tea is great when you are craving something a little sweet. Celestial Seasonings Sugar Cookie Sleigh Ride is buttery, sweet and when you get the brewing down, very like a cookie. It can have a little too much orange peel for a true cookie taste if steeped too long, so check the taste after three minutes.
