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

Last night I went to Walmart a little tipsy, and ended up spending $100 on a Keurig Brewer. They had intrigued me for a while, and I was surprised to see one for only $100. After looking for K-Cups a couple different places, I wasn’t too excited about their options for tea. I read quite a few reviews that told me just tossing in a tea bag was a bad idea…but I just couldn’t resist.

First I tried a white tea in the Keurig, and was pleasantly surprised at how tasty it was! I was so excited to be enjoying such yummy tea in under 2 minutes, that I just had to try a second bag. In the mood for something fruity, I ripped open my wild berry zinger out of my fruit tea sampler and decided to give that a whirl. I was pretty excited when I first smelled it, but didn’t want to get my hopes up. Fortunately I was not disappointed!

It tastes very similar to fruit punch to me. And I’m a huge fan of fruit punch. :) I suppose it has some tartness to it but it’s not overwhelming. I’m really curious to see what this tastes like iced. I bet with a bit of stevia it will be delicious! Hoping I can find a box of this this weekend- since it’s from the fruit sampler I only have 2 or 3 left.

One of these days I may try steeping this in my teapot just to see how it compares to the way it tastes from the Keurig. This machine of course doesn’t replace my kettle/teapot but I definitely see myself using this on mornings I have to be to class by 8, and at night when I just don’t have the energy to mess with steeping the old-fashioned way!

I’m excited I can make using of my new brewer without having to spend $12 for 16 cups of tea!

Strong, full bodied berry flavor. Although I prefer to drink it unsweetened, other people tell me that the “zing” is too overpowering. I always buy this in boxes of two, since it’s one of my favorites.

This Tisane delivers a wild berry zinger punch! I brewed this in my 16oz tumbler left the tea bag in and it was great! Loved the different berry flavours of raspberry and sweet blackberries. I do see that some other steepsters have been particularly harsh when rating this tea but I also noticed that a lot of the reviews are well over 4 years ago so maybe Celestial made some changes because this was really good.

This is quite drinkeable iced with sugar. But remember, it don’t mean a thing, if it ain’t got that zing. And there is little zing here. Still it’s good. I did notice a bit of that cherry cough syrup smell that someone else noticed. And the back of my throat may be feeling it.

Two bags and 200 mL for 3 min then iced.

Having previously rated this a 14/100 due to how ridiculously sour and acidic it is, I’m going to bump my rating slightly. I was in the mood for something fruity and with no caffeine today and thought I would start to use up this box gifted to me by someone who was going to throw it out.

1 tsp agave, 1 teabag coldbrewed in 500 mL cold water for 10-15 minutes. The sweetener isn’t too much. It takes the edge off, but it isn’t anywhere close to juice or generic sweetened iced tea. I can’t drink this straight, but I also don’t enjoy super sweet drinks. As a lightly sweetened coldbrew, this isn’t as bad. It allows me to taste the tisane without being overwhelmed by the horrors of hibiscus and citric acid. There is a definite berry flavour (raspberry, blackberry, boysenberry), hibiscus, cherry/fruit punch, lemon. Mostly berries and hibiscus, though.

I still maintain this is waaay to sour and would be more enjoyable if it wasn’t attempting to burn my esophagus with it’s caustic acid. Definitely opt for a short steep. Best had with light sweetener and lots of ice.

I was surprised by how tolerable this tea was. I expect it will be even better cold brewed in the summer, perhaps added to lemonade. My experience with the hot brewed version was a nicely tart raspberry heavy herbal tea which needed very little sugar. I can understand how the acidic berry flavors are off-putting to many steepsters, but I was pleasantly amused by it.

Tea 4/5 in the sample pack I got off of amazon. I cold brewed this tea: 4 tea bags in 2L of cold water in the fridge overnight. Steeped for about 10 hours.

The taste is mildly tart with a mixed berry flavour. It’s quite good! If I had to change anything maybe a bit shorter steeping time to cut the tartness down a tad. Otherwise a great tea. I still like the Blueberry and Black cherry teas the best since I can point to the taste of those fruits in the iced tea. This one there is a “berry” flavour, but I just wish I could point out exactly what it is :P.

This smells only of cherry to me. The color of the liquid is a very dark and opaque berry red. Maybe something like a black raspberry. The flavor is tart and all cherries.
