First offered in 1972, the original Zinger® tea blends tangy and fruity hibiscus leaves with refreshing peppermint, sweet orange, lively lemongrass and earthy wild cherry bark. One of our favorites over ice.

      This is my husband's favorite. He is not a tea fan, more of a coffee drinker. But this one he loves. To me, it isn't very subtle.

      Uggghhh. Just...uggghhh. If you are a fan of really sour flavors, you may like this. I realized--through my first taste of this, long ago in the hippie days, lol--that I really, REALLY do not like the taste of hibiscus. Or licorice in tea. So for me, a hard pass (to each her own!)

      All of the zinger teas are very artificial tasting. I liked some more than others, but this one was particularly artificial to me. I won't be returning for more. I didn't finish the box, and left it in the breakroom at work for others to take... And it was there for a long time, no one else wanted this artificial stuff either.

      It's tangy. It's fruity. It's very average run-of-the-mill stuff.

      It's a great drink to share with a large group of people. I often make a pitcher of it for friends and family who visit.

      The tang of the hibiscus combined with the coolness of the peppermint and the zing from the lemongrass is so good! Adding a little sugar makes it even better and chilling takes it over the top. This is a tea that shows just how much flavor herbs can have on their own.

      Did not like, the sour/tart notes were so strong that I couldn't appreciate the fruit notes. And no amount of sweetener could help.

      Very tangy and fruity, would probably make a great iced drink.

      I grew up drinking this! I love this iced in the summer and hot in the winter, it's a classic for a reason. The hibiscus flavor can get too strong and bitter if you steep it too long, so it's much easier to drink iced.

      This is a really zingy tea. I don't much care for it hot and unsweetened but it's a nice iced tea.

      Not really special in flavor or taste. Very tart so you will need some sugar

      Its very tart without any sweetener, but it doesn't take much to evenout the blend.

      A nice tart tea. I couldnt figure out what I didn't like about it but it's the cherry flavor in it that reminds me of medicine

      Celestial is always a solid brand. You're not really going to get a fantastic quality tea, but you'll pretty much never going to get a band one.
