Celestial Seasonings Wild Berry
Zinger Tea Review
A Pretty Pleasing Mix of Various Berries
in a Bagged Tea
Summary : Anyone who likes the unique taste that an
assortment of differing kind of berries produces, will enjoy this tea.
The tea does have a strong blueberry and raspberry taste to it, though.
So if you don't like those two types of berries, you might want to hold
off on this particular tea.
Review : I'll be honest. I didn't have high hopes for
this tea after unwrapping the tea from the foil. Reason? The lack of
smell. The tea had very, very weak aroma to it - and its been my sad
experience that a weak smelling tea tastes weak. Sometimes this is good
(such as with bedtime teas), but not something one probably is looking
for in a "wild berry zinger" tasting tea.
However, I began to get my hopes up. Immediately upon adding boiling
water to the leaves, a new, strong aroma emerged. It smelled, strangely
enough, somewhat like wild cherry lifesavers (my favorite by the way).
And so, after letting the tea brew for 5 minutes, and in an increasingly
positive state of mind, I tasted the tea.
Wild Berry Zinger Tea is from Celestial Seasonings and contains the
following ingredients : Hibiscus; rosehips; roasted chicory root; orange
peel; blackberry leaves; natural flavors of: black raspberries, strawberries,
blueberries, red raspberries, cranberries and cherries; citric acid;
licorice root; and natural flavor.
The taste of the tea was not quite what I was expecting, but that really
wasn't the teas fault here. I was sort of expecting a "wild cherry
flavor" due to its aroma when brewing. But, as you can tell by the
ingredients, this tea contains a very, very wide assortments of berries
- making this tea rather aptly named.
And this wide assortment of berries in it comes out in the taste of
the tea itself, I found. Tasting this tea will give you a wild assortment
of "berry" tastes, which I didn't find especially pleasing
but I suspect others probably will. I think my hangup with this tea is
that I'm not a huge fan of blueberries - a taste which is quite noticeable.
However, this tea does come through in what it advertises as - a assortment
of berry tastes in a tea. And, despite my relative dislike of blueberries,
I still find this tea fairly pleasing to drink. It was by no means awful
to my tongue, and I have a picky tongue. Lastly, the tea has a pretty
strong and distinct taste to it as well. While the tea may smell a bit
weak when first opened from the foil package, you would never know it
from the strong taste this tea provides.
Recommendation : Yes. Anyone who likes a mix of berry
flavors in a tea will especially like Celestial Seasonings Wild Berry
Zinger Tea. It's not my favorite tea due to the fairly strong flavor
of blueberries, but I know I'm strange in that regard. I do think most
other people will enjoy this tea.
