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.

Whilst I was knitting my teapot cozy, my tea in the teapot got cold. Ironic, eh?

So I’m mixing the cold raspberry zinger with some 7up to have with my lunch. And it’s very tasty and fizzy.

From a sampler of Celestial Seasonings herbals. Definitely raspberry, and definitely zingy. The spice mix blends well with the raspberry flavoring. Very nice, and would be good iced as well.

This is a pleasant surprise! I didn’t think I’d like this because the lemon would be overpowering, but it’s perfect! A great balance of flavor. I’m really enjoying these zingers lately!

I think I’ve had this before and I think I remember liking this too!

My last pot of this blend. It’s definitely grown on me since I first bought it. I’ll probably end up revisiting it in the future, but for now, I’ll try a few different things.

I’ve been drinking their Candy cane lane every evening. I might have to try the sleepytime vanilla.

Going to go to bed early tonight…big pot o’ this before I head that way. I have noticed I sleep better when I drink chamomile at night. This blend is pretty good…but I’ll probably be investing in a different one rather than pick it up again.

It’s been so long since I shopped Celestial Seasonings… I didn’t know this existed. Sleepytime was always my favorite, and I love vanilla.

I’ve never had plain Sleepytime, but this one is very nice. The vanilla makes it really smooth and creamy.

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.

Hope tea helps chase the ickiness away!

Hope it brings sleep quick and you wake up feeling refreshed.

Ah, now that’s more like it! A big cup o’ chamomile to soothe me to sleep!

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).

It was good while it was steaming hot, had to dump it after it cooled down. Glad this was given to me because it would have been a sad waste of tea money.

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.

Don’t know if I’d like it now, but I have to say that this and Sleepytime are what got me into drinking tea when I was a kid. So for that I give it a kind rating.
