Celestial Seasonings Raspberry Zinger Tea Review

A Raspberry Lovers Delight

Summary : Well, where to start. How about this...if you like raspberries, then this tea is for you. If you don't like raspberries, then this tea isn't for you. Simple, huh?

Review : Raspberries, to be truthful, aren't my favorite fruit around. They aren't bad...but I won't kill someone for them either. I do like raspberries "straight off the vine", although I personally will take huckleberries over raspberries any day of the week.

Still, I happened to find myself with a fruit sampler box from Celestial Seasonings that happened to contain their Raspberry Zinger Herbal Tea.

This is how Celestial Seasonings advertises this tea as : "Here's a bushel of fresh raspberry flavor zapped with the goodness of hibiscus and rosehips. This tea's taste is so exciting, it's hard to believe its ingredients have been popular for centuries. First enjoyed by ancient Romans and Greeks, rosehips were also a food source for Native Americans and pioneers. Hibiscus flowers grow in tropical climates and have long been used in ice cream, wine, jam and natural dyes. In fact, hibiscus flowers and rosehips give this tea its ruby red color."

This Raspberry Tea contains the following ingredients : Hibiscus, rosehips, roasted chicory root, blackberry leaves, orange peel, natural raspberry flavor with other natural flavors, lemon grass, raspberries, raspberry leaves, and citric acid.

Now, tea manufacturers have been known to "stretch" things a bit, in my learned opinion. However, there is no false advertising here. This tea has a strong, and I do mean strong, raspberry flavor.

And the color of the tea is indeed a deep ruby red. It is actually quite pretty, especially if you drink it in a clear tea cup. Combine this with its pleasant raspberry aroma and, presto, you have a tasty and memorable herbal tea.

Overall, I'll confess, I was impressed with this tea, as it comes very close to setting out what I suspect Celestial Seasonings hoped to accomplish - creating a tea that tastes remarkably similar to what a raw raspberry tastes like right off the vine.

Recommendation : Yes. If you love raspberries, I believe you'll love this tea. I personally don't love raspberries, but yet I'm giving this tea 4 stars simply because this tea tastes amazingly close to raspberries straight off the vine.
