I find this tea to be tart, more like a treat (not sure I’d say dessert) tea. I’ve only had it warm, but I think this would be an excellent cold brew tea, too.

I tend to not use any sweeteners in my teas so I lean towards a stronger flavor to compensate for this. I, also, have a love/hate relationship with Celestial Seasoning’s tea selections, however, this tea does not disappoint.

While it is not a favorite of mine, I would buy it again when in a pinch for a tea I know I will enjoy.

EDIT TO ADD:

I’ve finally had a chance to try this as a cold brew and came back to edit my review and re-rate the tea giving it a slight bump from 75 to 80.

This was much better as a cold brew. With a bit of sweetener it really was a refreshing drink. Careful on the sweeteners though, it can quickly go from sweet to sickly sweet. I learned that lesson the hard way!

This is one of those fruity herbal teas that I sometimes think about as juice alternatives. If you are approaching this expecting a strong watermelon flavor you will be disappointed. One of the other reviewers refereed to it as being more of a Jolly Rancher style flavor, which I think is accurate to describe this tea as a calorie free liquid alternative to hard candy.

Boiling 5 min, 0 sec

I made this one as an iced tea. I think it’s pretty clear that that is how CS intends for it to be prepared. It is amazing!! Clear, cool, refreshing, pleasantly tart and slightly sweet. Steeps a gorgeous crimson. Hibby isn’t obnoxious either, although I was afraid it would be.

Perfect summertime tea!

This is quite a nice tea, especially when you consider the low price tag! The flavor is not very strong – the hibiscus seems to overshadow the watermelon and lime flavors. Although I wish the watermelon taste was more prominent, it kind of leaves a watermelon Jolly Rancher taste in your mouth, which is nice!

I just put in another order for some of Celestial Seasoning’s Zinger teas. I really like them for iced tea, with just a bit of sweetener. I saw that they had added this one to the lineup, so I decided to give it a try. I really liked it! It’s exactly what I want from a Watermelon-Lime-Hibiscus tea. It has a strong Watermelon flavor that reminds me of Jolly Ranchers combined with a Hibiscus-Lime tartness.

I’ve been doing a lot of iced teas lately- perhaps it’s time for me to try a more inexpensive brand. Or different brands like this in general ;)

If you like Hibiscus iced teas, definitely check out Celestial Seasonings; Zinger teas. They have several really nice ones with distinctive flavors. I like their True Blueberry (which tastes like grape to me), their Mandarin Orange Spice (Which is a non-hibiscus orange tea), and their Lemon Ginger as well for icing.

Thanks for the tips! I’ll look around. I don’t really care for hibiscus but I’ve been mixing hibiscus teas with other lighter herbal teas which tends to cut the tartness well enough.
