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. ;)

The other flavour I ended up getting at the liquidation sale. This one is ok. I still prefer the original lemon flavour though. This one is quite sweet, it is definitely raspberry tasting. I know it says it is all natural flavouring but it doesn’t taste like natural raspberry. That being said it is not a bad raspberry taste. It is definitely thirst quenching. The actual tea base is quite hidden by the raspberry flavour but it is still present, smooth and cold as always.
So here in Canada, we have a store call Liquidation World. It is essentially exactly what is sounds like. It buys poducts from stores that are going out of business, looking to get rid of product, etc, and sell it for super cheap. Liquidation World was recently acquired by the American Big Lots. Then Big Lots decided to close all of its stores (US and Canada – even though the Canadian stores were making tonnes of profit, I guess it wasn’t enough to keep the empire afloat). BOO!!!
I have some family members that love Liquidation World. You can usually find some really good deals, although most of the products are not always good quality and the expiry dates on the food are not too far away. But you can always find interesting things you can’t get anywhere else.
So I went on boxing day and they had a few kinds of Arizona iced tea on the cheap. So I stocked up. I love Arizona tea, it is real iced tea which is hard to come by in a can or bottle in Canada. And it is usually quite expensive, due to the monster size can.
This tastes lovely. A bit sweeter than I would like though. The black tea is strong but not astringent. It tastes like a Ceylon but I am not sure. There is definitely an artificial lemon flavour, but it is still delicious. Everything a canned iced tea should be. The only drawback is it is a huge 695 ml can. I read online that they now have 8oz cans in the US. But I think I will get over it.
