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’ve never liked the zingers either. It’s the hibiscus, I think. Maybe I need to try it with the sugar and honey.

I’m a confirmed hibiscus hater, but every so often, you find a blend where the other ingredients whup it into submission.
