From Celestial Seasonings

“In this lively blend, effervescent tangerines, juicy oranges and a whisper of passionfruit flavor mingle with sweet-tart hibiscus – whose deep red color and tangy flavor give Zingers their zing. Possessing delightfully soothing qualities when hot, this tea is especially refreshing served over ice.” — Charlie Baden, Celestial Seasonings Blendmaster Since 1975

Ingredients: Hibiscus, rosehips, blackberry leaves, natural tangerine flavor with other natural flavors (contains soy lecithin), orange peel and hawthorn berries

Hibiscus… I was a bit nervous to try it, but I’m glad I did. The tangerine/orange mix is beautiful and somewhat calming. This is a yummy tea that I would recommend to anyone.

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).

You are mightily determined! I really wish we got those holiday CS flavours, like the sugar cookie one. But not sure if I’d pay that much!

Super Starling!

Oh my goodness, it’s only $2.69 USD at my local Wegman’s (I just looked it up). That really, really sucks. Do you live in a remote area, or is it not as widely available in Canada in general?


I get some of my teas from an online store called 4AllVitamins they have a decent selection of CS and Republic of Tea stuff that you can’t find in Canadian store. Plus their shipping is usually fairly reasonable.



Have you tried Celestial Seasoning’s Mandarin Orange spice? It doesn’t have Hibiscus, and pretty much tastes like sweet orange. The spices aren’t very noticeable at all, but it’s quite tasty.


@Fjellrev, I’ve had my eye on this tea for many months, so that’s how I justified spending as much as I did (plus the new job), lol

@Super Starling! I’m not in really that remote of an area. I’m in a town of about 110k people. I think it’s just not that available here in Canada.

@Jillian, thanks for the tip! I will look at it :)

@rosebudmelissa, thanks for the recommendation! I think I’ve seen that one in the store closest to my apartment so I may try it out!


That’s awesome, thanks Jillian!

Hey, sometimes you have to treat yourself when you’re working hard, Kristal. :D


I think so, Fjellrev! :)


So I’ve tried cold brewing twinnings HONEYBUSH mandarin orange blend (not rooibos, my bad) and it’s quite lovely! Gunna try hot brewing it then cooling it down for a little extra “oomph”, but otherwise I love it and that’ll be a staple iced tea for the rest of the summer :) (plus I love it hot too!).

I cold brewed this overnight last night and it was really really good – I’m impressed! Normally this one is just okay but cold brewing really downplayed the orange notes and amped up the hibiscus which was fine by me! I used 4 bags/32oz of water. I’m cold brewing again tonight with 3 bags/32oz to see how that plays out.

I’m kind of surprised I’ve haven’t tried this one yet, but I guess I tried the Mandarin Orange Spice first and liked it, and though this would be relatively similar so I didn’t bother trying this one. I’m glad I tried it this time. The tangerine and hibiscus made this quite different from the mandarin orange. I really, really like it. I can’t wait to try it iced!

I normally hate hibiscus-y teas, but I enjoyed this one. It’s exactly what it claims to be, orangey and tart. Not my ideal tea, but good enough. And hibiscus tea is another way to get some vitamin c so that’s a plus too.

I really enjoyed this. It had a very light flavor, but could definitely would have again.

Iced, with honey. Not great nor terrible.

I wasn’t sure what to expect from this, but I really enjoy the tangerine flavor. That’s the only flavor I can detect from it though, except a bit of berry. I like it! It doesn’t try too hard to be spectacular, just something nice and warm for a rainy day or iced for a hot summer day.

Tastes exactly as expected: tangy and citrus-y. Had mine with 3 teaspoons of honey to help soothe my sore throat; maybe that’s why I liked it just fine.

Pretty good. I would steep it a little more concentrated than usual, and not for too long – it seems to get a little weird with oversteeping. The tangerine flavor is nice, but I think I’m a little tired of the “zinger” flavor, whatever it is, because I’m kind of dragging to get to the end of the box.
