I like this for lunch at work since its one of the few tea options the cafeteria downstairs have. It annoys me that we can’t get flavored blacks though – since I don’t really like white or green teas with any sweetener or anything.
Guess this means I should think ahead and steep my own ahead of time. Still, the sweet lemon flavor goes well with a black base…. I just know it would be better and fresher if I prepared it myself. Not to mention cheaper!
Had some of this at Whole Foods where we stopped to get lunch today. I have a soft spot for anything having to do with Berke Breathed because he used to do the comic for my college newspaper before he did Bloom County, and the label gets a lot of mileage out of his being among the company’s first customers. There’s a picture of Opus the penguin on the front.
It’s decent for a bottled tea. I don’t taste a lot of oolong flavor, but I do taste the peach. It has some sugar in it making a bottle 60 calories, which I could do without. One of the reasons I drink tea is because it has no calories.
I had this tea today with my lunch. It’s amazing that I still feel the need to buy any bottled tea with all the teas I have in my stash. Still, sometimes this is nice for convenience.
It does have a mystery ingredient which seems kind of citrusy to me. I have to wonder if it’s ascorbic acid powder or something of that nature, which would also serve as a preservative. This is a good basic iced tea because it’s calorie free and doesn’t have a lot of flavorful additions. I also like the Moroccan mint iced tea by this company.
Not bad. I’m not sure how I feel about their “just a tad sweet” philosophy. I like plain tea, and I like sweet tea, but this kind of tastes like watered-down sweet tea. I didn’t even get much tea flavor until I got to the bottom of the bottle. On the other hand, I appreciate that they’re giving us a low-sugar option.
Tried this on “lunch” break at 1 AM this morning – the hospital I work at has a few iced tea options from Honest Tea, and I know I’ve had stuff from them before, but I think it was before I was a full blown tea addict (oh, so long ago haha) so I can’t remember which ones they were.
This tea was sweetened and definitely an identifiable peach flavor. I wish I had had a black tea base with it as I love peach iced tea that way, but nope, that wasn’t one of my options. I’m sure that my palate has changed to become more selective, too, because this tastes…bottled. There’s something vaguely chemically about it that I just don’t like. Kind of like how “sweet tea with lemon” that is RTD does not have an authentically lemon taste.
Eh. It was nice to have an iced tea option for lunch…I’ll just probably try a different one next time.
