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!

Hey thanks for the review…did you know that Rachel Ray just rated this the best tea in the black tea/herb category?

Thanks for the review.

Glad to hear it – it’s definitely a good one in my book, and very popular in my house – my boyfriend drinks about a gallon of it iced a week! :D

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!

Bio

I hate coffee and I love teas of all stripes (including herbal/tisanes)! My tea stash is getting out of control, so I’m trying to work through it – current count is 152+ flavors/types of tea/tisanes, bagged and loose. Woo!

My ratings:
0-10: Undrinkable. Probably threw the container away in a fit of rage.

10-25: Urgh. Gross. I need to give it away as it is taking up valuable tea cupboard space.

25-40: Uhh…why do I have this? May attempt foisting it onto my boyfriend.

40-55: Kinda funky, might drink it if I’m feeling under the weather and find it helpful, but that’s about it.

55-70: Ok, no great shakes, but I’ll drink it without complaint. I probably wouldn’t buy it again though.

70-85: If I come it across it and I’m in the mood, I’ll probably repurchase it.

85-100: Awesome! I will take extra time to find this again, and cry bitterly if it has been discontinued.
