Lemon Zinger


Tea of the Day: Lemon Zinger by Celestial Seasonings

Description: Lemonade-style of refreshment starts with lemons and Guatemalan lemongrass, blended with hibiscus for the tangy taste and ruby-red color

Smells very tangy but not overly lemony before steeping

Liquor is a nice dark red in the cup. Smells a bit like lemonade but with an extra tang. You can definitely taste the lemon but the hibiscus makes the tea tangy rather than sour and gives the tea more body overall

Rating: 3.5/5

Spare Change

You drop compliments casually,

spare change of words,

falling into conversations

a head-turning sound

Unlike those coins,

pennies and dimes spinning across the floor,

your words matter

Anyone can see it..

there’s the slightest of pauses

in the flow of our conversation:

my cheeks redden,

you hide a smile.

We move on,

but that casual wording lives in our ears;

ringing change recorded on repeat

“What kind of tea do you want?”
“There´s more than one kind of tea?…What do you have?”

-“I.. Uh…What are you having?… Did you make some of those up?”
