Tea Reviews:
Celestial Seasonings - Lemon Zinger

This was my second lemon herbal tea, and I think I'm starting to get the hang of it.

When I first started (with Bigelow's I Love Lemon), I expected it to be as bright and vibrant as Celestial Seasoning's Raspberry Zinger (one of my favorite fruit herbals).  But, that's just not the case.  Don't get me wrong; it's a good tea.  But not quite what I expected.  But now, since I've tried a second variety, I think I'm a little more ready to review them both.

This is an enjoyable tea.  Nice lemon flavor, though I needed a fair bit of sugar to get it there.  Truthfully, I had expected this one to be better than the Bigelow blend.  Celestial Seasonings is my long-time preference for fruit herbals, so I assumed that this one would be the best.  But honestly?  I'm not sure I have a preference between this one and the Bigelow equivalent.  Both are good, but neither stands out as the clear winner.  So basically, I endorse them both!

In short:  Good lemon tea.
