Commercial Description

This flavorful herbal blend brings together ruby-red hibiscus (whose tart and tangy taste is the trademark of every Zinger® tea) and the unmistakable sweetness of coconut. It’s a breezy tropical delight that’s relaxing when warm and a delicious way to rehydrate when served over ice.

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 dry-bag aroma smelled like coconut and cut leaves or grass of some sort—far more grassy than the flavor turned out. Pouring and steeping yields a purple-gray liquid that eventually turns brown with a hint of red (hibiscus influence?), and smells more like coconut than the taste.

Although coconut seems to be the main flavor, the overall taste of this tea is not very strong, and the coconut itself as a good deal weaker than in the one other such tea I have tried: Trader Joe's rendition of coconut green tea (with lemongrass). In the CS tea, the orange flavor is faint but detectable. As it is, the drink is smooth and pleasant, just undeservedly weak.

This has potential to be a wonderful tropical-themed tea beverage with the coconut and orange flavors. It could make a fine iced tea for relaxing on a beach in Margaritaville after changes in latitudes, when it's 5:00 somewhere and we're eating a cheeseburger in paradise, while trying to reason with hurricane season. This blend just needs a substantial flavor-power boost! Perhaps less of the leafy plant material and far more coconut pieces would do the trick.
