Why do I like this tea? This sweet and spicy herbal concoction that smells like potpourri? Why do I go back to it, even though I know that it’s going to remind me of that basket of bark on the back of some old lady’s toilet? (Or perhaps an apple cinnamon candle?)
I truly don’t know. But I will probably keep drinking this tea intermittently, anyway.
Oh, hello, lover. I think I’ve found you.
It’s nutty and gently honey-sweet, with definite notes of vanilla and chamomile. You can note all the distinct flavors, but they are blended in such a way that they work together perfectly. It’s simply beautiful.
I think I’ve found it. That perfect chamomile for me. And it’s been sitting right there at Meijer this whole time. sigh Yup, this could be love.
Definitely my favorite of the Celestial Seasonings Zingers I’ve had. I love the hibiscus, the blackberry, and the cranberry notes that are in here. It’s a fruit-punchy tea that wouldn’t appeal to everyone (if you don’t like hibiscus or tart, stay far, far away). I love all things fruity and naturally sweet with that edge of tart, so this tea is delicious.
This was part of a sampler pack of fruit teas. I wish there were more variety packs from CS, because there’s a lot of flavors I’m interested in trying, but they can be hit or miss and I hate to buy a box I’m not going to want to drink. I’ll probably grab a box of this one next time it’s on sale.
My last pot of the evening…so glad that my conference is in town this week!! It means I get to sleep in a smidge, and that I didn’t have to abandon Chloe (what, has nobody else named their Breville?), and can have delicious tea before I go to the morning sessions. Granted, I’ll probably not get to have any once I’m there, but at least I’ll have a few really good morning cups!!
I’m still feeling a bit off, so I’ve brewed up a pot of this and will be heading to bed shortly to hopefully sleep off whatever bug I’ve caught. Breathing in the mint smell is very soothing, and I’m hoping the chamomile will help sleep come quick. I’ve got a busy week ahead of me, and I don’t want to be sick for it.
Smells like mint and vanilla. I taste the chamomile and mint equally, with the vanilla rounding it out and turning this into something delicious. And while you can taste the chamomile, this tea isn’t flowery at all. Definitely a good tea to have. And here’s hoping that it soothes me into dreamland (especially after the caffeine I’ve had today).
The actual raspberry flavor of this isn’t bad when you single it out. It’s not too artificial. But the rest of the elements of the tea are very weak. I can vaguely taste the hibiscus, but it’s mostly overwhelmed by that generic bland herbal taste most of Celestial Seasonings’ feature. I wouldn’t buy it again. Next time I’ll be looking for a real black tea instead of this sawdust.
