As a born and bred Mississippian, I have to say that this is some of the worst tasting sweet tea I have had. The flavors are all wrong. The tea was not steeped long enough, so the flavor is weak. There should be real sugar instead of corn syrup; that changes the taste greatly. Finally, it is like I can just taste preservative (I know there are none); that’s very off-putting..
Frank pointed this out to me when we were shopping one day, so I bought a bottle to try because why not?
I would describe it more as a juice featuring tea than a tea itself, as the fruit juice definitely takes centre-stage. That being said, the green tea is definitely present in the taste and aftertaste, adding an interesting grassy note which I am almost surprised goes so well. It is certainly done better than other similar juice teas I have tried. I haven’t looked an the ingredients or nutrition information, but I have a feeling there is definitely some added sugar in this. It’s sweet but tart at the same time, but definitely not as sweet as most soft drinks. It is still fresh enough to be refreshing. I wouldn’t actively seek this out, but if I were out wanting a drink and saw this, I would likely choose it over a bottle of pop.
I kind of randomly got this when I went and bought lunch at work today. It’s ~1.7k round trip, and it was warm, and all the tea I had was warm, and I wanted something cold.
I do like the tea part of this, but the raspberry was somewhat overpowering. It’s also way too sweet for my new taste buds. :) Still, I drank it all over the course of the afternoon. I don’t mind spending the $0.99 for a giant tin of this tea, since it actually tastes like tea.
I hadn’t had this in FOREVER, but working on the house on the weekend was a thirsty job, and when I went out for drinks, this looked incredibly appealing.
In fact, it was so appealing I had to share it with two other people even though I wanted to drink the whole bottle myself.
Incredibly sweet, lemony flavoured, real tea (there were even some leaves on the bottom!). Will buy again. ;)
