Generally speaking, I dislike all the Zingers. They all taste alike to me. Or at least that was the case several years ago when I said to myself, “Eh, don’t bother.” But this one was in a sample box.
Hey, it clearly smelled like lemon when I opened the packet! And it tastes like lemon. Actual lemon, not just super-tart and zingy. I cold-brewed it and didn’t add anything. It got pretty strong.
And, of course, red. There’s something wrong with lemon tea that’s bright red. I know it’s the hibiscus. I know hibiscus is cheap and tangy. But come on. Lemon tea should not be ruby red.
Still… I doubt I’ll ever be wooed into buying one of the other Zingers again, but the flavor of this one was as advertised so I wouldn’t turn it down.
