I have never much liked any of the zingers … until yesterday. A very thoughtful work friend brought me a tumbler of this stuff steeped strong, iced, sweetened with half honey, half organic sugar. It tasted like the best celestial kool-ade ever. Between the sweetness and the additional ingredients that I do like: chamomile, blackberry, chicory, there was no make-your-eyes-water tartness at all. Best summer afternoon surprise in a long time!
I do love lemon, and I love it in my black tea. Just rating this as itself, I like it a lot. It’s got an intensity I enjoy. There’s a nice depth to the flavor. I note others have whined about the hibiscus, but I don’t know what they’re talking about. This is a nice lemony tea. When I don’t have any fresh lemon to add to my cup of black tea, I simply use a bag or two of this thrown into the pot—problem solved. It’s also excellent in a blend of mixed teas. This is better than Bigelow’s “I Love Lemon” tea, which is nowhere near as lemony as this is. It’s even good unsweetened.
Flavors: Lemon, Lemon Zest
I finally caved and purchased a box of this tea. For months I’ve been searching for it in stores (I live in Canada), even contacting celestial seasonings with no luck. Normally you can buy Celestial Seasonings Tea in stores for like $4/box. With shipping I spent like $13 for a box of 20 tea bags, and it hurt to do so. But, the day I bought it I got a new job so I knew I could afford it, lol.
I’ve tried brewing this hot and then chilling it, but this tea is best cold brewed (5 tea bags per 2L pitchers, approx 12h). The tea does have the taste of orange but I’d say the tart hibiscus is more prominent. My husband drank 3/4 of the pitcher already and says he loves this tea. I like it too, but I want to try cold brewing Twinnings’ Mandarin orange rooibos blend (which does not have hibiscus) before I decide if this one is worth purchasing 6 boxes at a time to cut costs (found a seller on amazon.ca: selling 6 boxes for $14).
Flavors: Orange, Tart
I sleep terribly, so I own a few decaf teas. This is the one I drink on nights that I’m pretty sure are on their way to going poorly.
Tonight is such a night; I was overstimulated with hiking, friends, an inadvisable amount of alcohol, a scary video game, and the possibility of a crazy 4th of July tomorrow.
Unbeknownst to me, this fallback tea has been slowly creeping its way up to one of my favorites. It’s so peachy, warm, and comforting. It’s like a sweet bedtime story before bed. I’m 31; I don’t really remember bedtime stories. But my parents are un-crappy, so I imagine they read them to me. And I imagine they felt good.
This is a lovely, snoozy, calming tea. Goodnight, loved ones.
Flavors: Peach, Sweet
My all time favorite tea. The flavor is just perfect. As someone who doesn’t use sugar or milk in my teas, I can’t ask for a better blend of seasonings. It’s refreshing, lemon-y, and has cat nip in it…Apparently cat nip has the opposite effect on humans as it does on cats – who knew? If you hate licorice, do not drink this as it does have a slight licorice flavor. Also subtle peppermint.
This tea also is incredibly relaxing…so much so, that I cannot have it at work unless I don’t mind dozing off!
Flavors: Cinnamon, Lemongrass, Licorice, Peppermint, Smooth, Tart
This is chai with coffee, so if you don’t like coffee, you won’t like this. The longer you steep it, the more pronounced the coffee flavor is, so keep it under five minutes. I wouldn’t drink it without milk and sweetener of some kind.
Flavors: Cinnamon, Coffee, Ginger
Iced, this is a wonderful, light and refreshing tea with a subtle peachiness. I don’t taste the chamomile at all (but I don’t have a problem with the taste of chamomile to begin with). All of my coworkers at the tea store (I am unaffiliated with celestial seasonings btw) that I work at love this tea.. which says a lot because we work in a premium tea company, and we prefer this to “our” peach tea, which is a flavoured black tea.
Alright. So, when it comes to tea, I am quite picky about it. I’ve tried Black tea, White tea, Green tea, Chi tea, Masala Chi tea, Roobios tea, and Herbal tea. Let me tell you, I HATE Green tea and am not a big fan of Herbal teas. However, this tea, a herbal creation, has been magnificent! I absolutely love it! With just a little bit of sugar this tea is warming and floods my mind with memories of my childhood being around the blueberry bushes. I highly recommend this tea if you’re not really into herbal teas.

Very tart, but the raspberry flavour was strong (not that you could taste it very well under the sourness). It makes an ok iced tea if you add sweetener and don’t let it sit too long.
Flavors: Berries, Berry, Hibiscus, Raspberry, Sour, Tart
There is a nice spicy sweetness to it, which makes for a nice hot tea of a wintry day. My only critique is that it is too minty for me, which overpowered the other flavours. This tea is sweet enough by itself that it doesn’t need any honey. It is good by itself but makes an especially wonderful steamed milk latte.
Flavors: Menthol, Mint, Peppermint, Spicy, Sweet
The blueberry one is the only one I find drinkable. The others I used up by dunking the tea bag for 10 seconds or so to brew some iced tea. These tisanes are only good for people who enjoy fruity acidic teas. Personally, I find them too sour, but others might like them. This sampler would be worth trying if you know you enjoy this sort of tisane.
Flavors: Berries, Berry, Blackberry, Blueberry, Lemon, Peach, Sour, Stonefruits, Tart
