35 Tasting Notes
This is a very gentle mint tea – a nice combo of peppermint and spearmint. It’s my go-to when I have a tummy ache, and it’s nice in the evening when I want something with a fresh taste, but that isn’t too invigoratingly minty.
I didn’t notice that it had hibiscus until after I read the box recently – I don’t notice it much in the taste. I usually add a small amount of honey to it.
This is one of my all time favorite herbal teas/tisanes, and it is my favorite out of everything I’ve ever tried from Celestial Seasonings, hands down. I really enjoy hibiscus based teas, and this one blows most of them out of the water for me. I used to enjoy the other Zinger flavors, but now I really don’t drink them – this is so much better! I usually add a little honey to round out the flavor, but it is quite good unsweetened.
It has a smooth tangerine/hibiscus taste, and smells fantastic – almost reminiscent of blood oranges in scent and color. If you like hibiscus/the other Zinger teas, try it!
I love the name of this tea – it makes me chuckle whenever I pick up the box. It tastes exactly like what the name says, and that’s why I love it. It may not be high grade, top notch stuff, but it reminds me of enjoyable meals in my favorite Chinese restaurants. I usually have this with dinner – it’s very nice with food.
This tea is a nice mint tea. I like that it is spearmint, instead of peppermint – it’s a nice change! I too, love to sniff the bag/packet – this tea smells fantastic! It’s good for when I want mint tea with some caffeine.
While this tea is good hot, it is EXCELLENT iced. I follow the directions on the box to make it as iced tea (pour 1 cup of boiling water over 6 bags, steep 10 minutes, add to pitcher with 3 additional cups cold water). I’m not a big iced tea fan, but this makes minty refreshing iced tea that doesn’t need to be sweetened, thanks to the natural sweetness of the mint. Good stuff!
This is one of my favorite bagged black teas – it has a nice nutty/cinnamon flavor. When I first got it I was worried the vanilla might taste fake, but it has a nice ‘real vanilla’ undertone. I usually sweeten it with a small amount of honey, but it’s also good without. I buy a few boxes of this around the holidays every year!
