From Celestial Seasonings

“There’s no mistaking a Zinger®! The freshly picked taste of this luscious blend evokes thoughts of coming home at dusk with pails full of ripe berries bursting with flavor. We add hibiscus – the tart, ruby-red herb that gives a Zinger its zing – and sweet blackberry leaves to layers of juicy berry flavor in this wonderfully balanced brew.” — Charlie Baden, Celestial Seasonings Blendmaster Since 1975

I like a solid berry flavor, and I like a solid hibiscus flavor. This was a good tea, as I remember it. Heavy-handed on the darker berries, which was fine by me.

Not the best in the CS fruit sampler, but pretty good. A good solid berry flavor. Nothing extra special about it.

I’ve hated tea for most of my life, I thought it tasted like boiled grass and could not figure out why so many people drank it. Then I spent a couple of weeks in Israel where it was rude not to drink tea offered to you and I developed a taste for the lemon and mint tea that everyone seemed to serve. So when I came back to the States I decided to dip into my mom’s tea stash to find other teas that I actually liked.

I started with the Wild Berry Zinger from Celestial Seasonings because it didn’t sound too grass-like, unlike all the herbal teas we had in the cabinet. It’s not bad. I can definitely taste the fruit but the flavor isn’t too overpowering. I don’t actually know much about tea, so it’s hard to review, but for a first tea to try, it’s pretty good.

This is certainly the best of the ‘zingers’ none of which are very good at all. I add one packet NuStevia to one cup boiling water. It’s OK.

Super tart and fruity. I usually add a bit of sugar to balance out the tartness, but when I’m craving berries this hits the spot. A good tea for people who don’t normally like tea, as it mainly tastes like fruit.

Got this as part of my Celestial Fruit Sampler. I like this one a little bit more than the blueberry one, which doesn’t surprise me much. Not quite as tart as I expected, but I do get a bit of tartness. The berries lend it a nice sweet flavor/aroma that I personally enjoy.

The berry flavor is pretty faint compared to the sour hibiscus. Not bad with some honey, but not very fruity.

I got this tea for work, and it was pretty good. I went so far to bring some home so I could have it there as well. There are definitely a lot of different berry flavors going on which kind of threw me off, despite the name. I think I was expecting to me almost more blueberry-esque only to get a lot of tart.

I wouldn’t get it again, but I did enjoy it while I had it.

Very refreshing and tangy. Feels good to the stomach: it isn’t very sour.

This one is definitely heavy on the cherry flavor. I’m not a huge fan but I’ve made two huge pitchers of it iced and drank quite a bit so it can’t be that bad. My boyfriend seems to love it iced and unsweetened as well. I tried it hot but it was too heavy on the cherry. I liked it better with some lemon in it to cut the sticky sweet-ness of it.
