Mandarin Orange Spice® Herb Tea from Celestial Seasonings

Style: Fruit (Herbal) Tea – Region: ?????

76 / 100 Aroma: 9/10 Flavor: 4/5 Value: 4/5
Dec. 30th, 2019

Celestial Seasonings has made a mint off selling assorted fruit flavors added to the same basic "Zinger" foundation (hibiscus, rose hips, hawthorn, blackberry leaves, orange peel). This tea has been around a couple of generations, probably preceding the Zingers, and doesn't bear that name, so maybe they're inspired by...

I Love Lemon® & C Herbal Tea from Bigelow Tea

Style: Fruit (Herbal) Tea – Region: ?????

71 / 100 Aroma: 7/10 Flavor: 4/5 Value: 4/5
Jun. 12th, 2019

I don't love lemon. Regardless, if you do, this seems to be as reasonable of a presentation of the natural flavor as you'll find in a hot beverage, short of cooking lemonade. Perusing the ingredients, this should be expected with three different plant sources of the lemon ester: lemongrass, lemon verbena and lemon (...

Citrus Sunrise from Celestial Seasonings

Style: Fruit (Herbal) Tea – Region: Blend

85 / 100 Aroma: 9/10 Flavor: 5/5 Value: 4/5
Feb. 18th, 2019

Citrus Sunrise easily can be called Orange Tangerine Zinger, if it weren't for a similarly named blend they already have. That's because it starts out with the same common-denominator ingredients as the CS Zinger line (rose hips, orange peel, hibiscus, hawthorn, blackberry leaves), and just boosts the orange part with...

True Blueberry® Herbal Tea from Celestial Seasonings

Style: Fruit (Herbal) Tea – Region: ?????

69 / 100 Aroma: 8/10 Flavor: 3/5 Value: 4/5
Feb. 6th, 2019

After running out of my favorite blueberry-flavored tea faster than expected, I got this in a moment of desperation, made easier to rationalize by a temporarily low sale price at Sprouts.

True Blueberry is one of the few herbal teas I've tried whose primary advertised flavor smells substantially stronger in the dry ...

Style: Fruit (Herbal) Tea – Region: ?????

58 / 100 Aroma: 6/10 Flavor: 3/5 Value: 3/5
Dec. 5th, 2018

In many ways, the behavior of this concoction from bag to cup to esophagus reminded me uncannily of the berry-flavored members of Celestial Seasonings' "Zinger" line:
* Fruity, hibiscus-heavy dry-bag and in-cup aromas,
* Initial cherry-red color turning a deep, opaque purple-gray with time,
* Strongly fruity,...

Coconut Zinger from Celestial Seasonings

Style: Fruit (Herbal) Tea – Region: Blend

63 / 100 Aroma: 6/10 Flavor: 3/5 Value: 4/5
Oct. 27th, 2017

Coconut being one of my favorite flavors, this looked promising on the store shelf. With a sale price of just $2 at Sprouts, I figured to try a box. It contains all the usual suspects for a CS Zinger offering: hibiscus, rose hips, orange peel, and blackberry leaves, but with natural coconut flavors swapped in. The d...

Dry Desert Lime™ from Numi Organic Tea

Style: Fruit (Herbal) Tea – Region: ?????

77 / 100 Aroma: 9/10 Flavor: 4/5 Value: 4/5
Oct. 9th, 2017

When I lived in South Florida, I got to know and love fresh key limes, and still wolf down key lime pie when it is made the right way. Lime is one of my favorite fruit flavors, and the best among citruses to me. In fact, I often add lime juice to plain black teas.

Given that background, in hauling this out of a N...

I tried a peach tea that has some artificial flavoring. Here's what happened.

[Sorry, clickbait haters...couldn't resist...first, a backstory...]

For several years, my wife has used this, in combination with at least two other brands of peach tea and some black tea, to make a thoroughly delicious peachy iced tea...

Raspberry Zinger® Herbal Tea from Celestial Seasonings

Style: Fruit (Herbal) Tea – Region: ?????

59 / 100 Aroma: 6/10 Flavor: 3/5 Value: 3/5
Jul. 20th, 2017

Raspberry Zinger and Black Cherry Berry have the same ingredients list, but for the flavoring (obviously), and an absence of hawthorn in this offering. Yet it doesn't taste much like a simple swap of modular components. I could pull raspberry more out of the aroma and aftertaste than the direct flavor itself. Cherry...

Hagebutte (Rosehips) from SPAR

Style: Fruit (Herbal) Tea – Region: ?????

52 / 100 Aroma: 5/10 Flavor: 3/5 Value: 3/5
Apr. 26th, 2017

This was my first attempt at a tea made mostly from rose hips. It brews up a deep purple/maroon color that gets dark fast, and has a mild fruity (more than rosy) aroma, both dry in-bag and wet in-cup. Fair warning: watch for structurally weak bags. Of my first 4 bags, 3 split open somewhere while I was pouring the ...

Apr. 1st, 2017

Not a big fan of the pomegranate fad, I decided to try this tea anyway, given its promising-looking roster of ingredients: hibiscus, rose hips, orange peel, lemon peel, natural pomegranate flavor, licorice, blackberry leaves, and ginseng. That should deliver a good load of fruitiness, and it did!

Though well-seal...

Mar. 28th, 2017

A hotel in northwest Dallas had bags of this tea on its breakfast area, so I tried a couple -- one there in (what is some of the consistently highest quality nationwide) city water and one at home in my own well water. In both instances, my impression of this tea is simple and straightforward: "Constant Comment" minu...

Apr. 9th, 2016

"How would you like a nice Hawaiian punch?"
or
"How did you like the taste of Shasta Black Cherry Soda as a kid?"

This is the closest thing I've tasted to that in an herbal tea. If you have children and want to introduce them to caffeine-free herbal teas harmlessly, or get them off high-calorie sugared fruit drin...
