I had a cup of this earlier. I really enjoy the peach and the orange in here. I think this tea is pretty good.

This smells orange-peach like. I steeped it up may of steeped too long though. The color a orange peach color. This taste like orange and peach with abit of a tang or sourness to it. In fact this tastes like those peach sour gummy rings. I still think this is good though.

Paprika? Too funny.

Backlogging I had a cup of this last evening. This I’s a fav standby of mine because of the ease of the teabag and the good taste of the spearmint and chamomile together. I think this is pretty good.

I finally made this without being so strong. I mainly taste the chamomile and the spearmint. It smells like chamomile with mint also. And I like the taste of it. Even though this is a teabag.

This tea has vanilla,milk thisle,orange peel and roasted barley. It smells kind of like orange and vanilla. I steeped for a couple or so minutes. You mainly taste the vanilla,the orange,and perhaps the milke thisle. The only thing that would of made this better would be more vanilla please.

Such a fun name. Sounds potentially delicious.

It tastes like koolaid at first, but if it steeps too long the cayenne really comes out.

About ten years ago, this was my favourite herbal tea. Then, a lot of time passed which seperated me from Red Zinger. Finally, a couple of years ago, I eagerly got hold of a box. Boy, was I disappointed. What did I ever see in it? Either my taste buds have changed or this tea has changed since 1999. It does taste slightly better with honey or brown sugar than with white sugar.

You have got to be kidding me. The box has more taste. (Yes — I tried. I was desperate.) However, my Mom really enjoys it, so that’s why it has as high a rating as it does. I’m not into white tea, but people who are (like my Mom) may find this refreshing. Personally, I can’t find the point.

Have you tried Revolutions Pear White tea? It’s a million times better than this crap.

Suzi

This post had me cracking up!

In my experience, CS teas always taste of either nothing or hibiscus. :-/ Maybe my tongue just isn’t nuanced enough to discover the subtle flavors…but if that’s the case them flavors are reeeeeeeeeeeally subtle.

Cofftea

Adagio’s white pear is pretty amazing.

Rena Sherwood

Thanks for the recommendations, Jillian and Cofftea. I’ve never tried those teas. Suzi, I think my palette was probably blasted from living with a smoker for a few years. But I have a feeling the flavours are subtle to the point of being invisible.

drank Bengal Spice by Celestial Seasonings
37 tasting notes

Really enjoyed this chai. It is heavy on the cinnamon but I like that. I think I paid about $2.50 for the box which is a steal. A big factor with chai to me is if its strong when you add the sugar and milk, the worst is if it gets a little thin once you add those. There was no issue with that with Bengal Spice. Enjoy.

This is in a teabag. Bai mudan white tea with white peaches. This mainly smells like peach. I steeped the teabag for a couple of minutes. This brewed up white. The taste a nice white tea with a medium peach taste. This I’s pretty good. This has alot of caffiene though.

This I’s a teabag. This has chamomile,honey,vanilla,orange,and barley. I steeped this up. This smells like orange and honey. The taste I’s chamomile with honey and orange. This is a decent tea. I just think the flavor I’s not strong enough and I do not taste the vanilla.

This beats the pants off of the “Bremer” brand honey-lemon-ginseng-green tea. It smells very sweet and appetizing, like a honey-lemon scone, with an appetizing taste to match. I think I also really enjoy the addition of eleuthero—the ingredient in “Tension Tamer”, which I think is fabulous. What a great “winter”-variety green tea!

It is a good tea, earthy tones that is good for morning time. Definitely nice to mix it up from my normal morning green tea. Out of all the Celestial Seasonings, this is one of my favorite.

A pretty sweet tea that’s fairly calming. A lot of the favors don’t taste very authentic, though. I can’t really pick out either the honey or the vanilla. It all seems to blend together. Nice and easy to drink, especially at night, but I can’t see myself buying boxes of this and toting it around to my friends.

Just had my third bag of this (to finish off the Herbal Tea Sampler I got from Celestial Seasonings). I had it iced, and it was quite a bit better than it was hot. However, I just don’t like the taste of this tea. With and without sweetener, it’s tart and overly tastes of hibiscus. That being said, it was much more drinkable in cold form, but it still wasn’t enough to sway me into liking this at all.

Maybe I’m just not a fan of lemon tea in general.

For me, this Zinger has no zing whatsoever.

I’d love to give a more detailed description of the taste, but my Mom keeps beating me to this tea. She loves to make iced tea out of it and that uses up 4 or 5 bags per pot. I’m not a big fan of fruity teas but my memory is telling me that this one is exceptionally good and not too sweet or syrupy. There is a video about it on YouTube by someone who perhaps is a little too fond of this tea: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=de0NcRmxVwI

drank Peppermint by Celestial Seasonings
186 tasting notes

Since I spent most of the night (and the night isn’t over, since I’m typing this at 3 am) curled in the fetal position, I figured I could use something calming and soothing.

I didn’t want any traces of caffeine at all, and I didn’t think I could stomach another round of chamomile, so in this goes.

All I know is that it’s getting staler tasting and weirder tasting, and the only redeeming value of this guy is that minty aftertaste. Which tastes stale now. Which is sort of the antithesis of mint, but whatever.

This has not been the best of days in a string of just plain sucky days, so I guess it’s appropriate that the tea has been mediocre as well.

Oh no. It sounds like you had a long, rough night to top off a long, rough week. I have a few samples of caffeine-free tea I’m supposed to be trying right now, so should I stumble upon a few delicious ones, I will be sure to know who to pass them along to!

teaplz

Thanks guys! My cramps really take a lot out of me, and turn me into this cranky, sad mess that really can’t handle much of anything. I just keep taking an Advil every 4-6 hours and wait for these bad days to pass, because yeah, they’re bad.

takgoti

Aww, hugs. I hope you find a happier tea for when these arrive.

I was busy making Decaf Ceylon by Adagio for both the mom and the boyfriend (who both lurves it, by the way!) to really concentrate on my own cup. So in went the bag of peppermint… and it just sat there. And sat there.

Today this pretty much tastes like nothing. Which is okay, because I shared the gift of loose leaf with others. YAY.

Good to see that you’ve moved on to corrupting others. ;)
