Episode 022: Kitchen Sink Tea

I was very intrigued by this green tea blend from Zoomdweebie’s. The base is green tea (banchan, I think), and there is a huge medley of over 20 flavors added. Since each blend has different quantities of flavors, each cup tastes different.

It’s a fairly good green tea, but the fruity flavors are the star here. Try it iced and you’ll really taste the depth and nuance of flavor. It’s a lot going on, but it actually works!

Episode 036: Raspberry Riot Lemon Maté

I generally like my matés pretty plain (Samurai Chai Maté is an exception), but this raspberry riot lemon maté blend from Teavana is pretty fantastic.

Green maté is mixed with raspberries, hibiscus, big pieces of apple, and lots of rose flavors to create a pretty satisfying cup of tea. The raspberry and fruit flavors are the star here, but you also get the kick that comes with a proper maté. It’s the best of both worlds!

Episode 147: Rainbow Sherbet Iced Tea

I’m back on the iced tea wagon, and this time it’s Zoomdweebie’s Rainbow Sherbet Iced Tea. This blend of black teas contains lime, orange, and raspberry flavors with a little something extra to give it that sherbet taste.

It’s somewhere in the middle of the road for me. It’s certainly a nice and fruity tea, but whatever’s added to give that sherbet taste is a bit chalky. It’s not a bad tea, but if you’ve got access to real rainbow sherbet, I’d go for that instead.

Episode 151: Wildberries Iced Tea

Zoomdweebie’s Wildberries Iced Tea has a lot of berry flavor — blackberry, strawberry, raspberry, blueberry, and more. I haven’t had an iced green tea since Austin, so this was a really refreshing change of pace.

Even with all the berries in this mix, they blend together pretty nicely! I really like that you can taste the different berries throughout each sip — strawberry and raspberry at the beginning, blackberry, blueberry and the others at the end. I’ve got a link to purchase this at Zoomdweebie’s, but soon you’ll be able to get this from the new Southern Boy Iced Teas website!

Episode 183: Wild Berry Zinger

I’ll level with you — I’m getting a little tired of the overabundance of hibiscus in herbal teas. Specifically, I’m tired of the overabundance of hibiscus in this herbal tea — Celestial Seasonings’ Wild Berry Zinger.

Aside from the hibiscus flavor, the only thing that stands out is the sour, tangy orange aftertaste when hot. It really doesn’t taste too far off from Pomegranate Pizzazz. Or Tazo Passion. I will say this — it makes for a pretty tasty iced tea. So if you do pick this up, iced is the way to go.
