I just got back from a WONDERFUL long weekend at Lori Foster’s Reader & Author Get Together (RAGT) in Ohio. Had a great time. Coffee was plentiful. Tea was not. If I wanted hot tea there was a small basket of Lipton teabags. I drank coffee.

But the café sold bottles of this tea and I had to say I enjoyed it. It’s a blend of herbals and fruit juice, so not really a tea. There is some hibiscus in the mix (I abhor the tangy zing of hibiscus) but I didn’t notice it in this. It was a refreshing drink for a hot afternoon and I’m glad I tried it.

I was out yesterday and in the mood for some iced tea, so I grabbed this one. It’s actually really good. Despite not having any sugar or artificial sweeteners, it has a definite sweetness to it. I’m not sure of the source of the green tea, or the sweetness, but it was very enjoyable. I haven’t had many bottled teas or iced green teas, so I wasn’t sure what to expect…it was a lot better than I expected!

This is one of my favorite things in the world, seriously. It’s a little harsh, but I like that is isn’t too sweet for a bottled drink.

This is really very good for bottled. Very low sugar and just enough natural-tasting lemon.

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.

When you’re pregnant and need something to drink, you get something to drink. However, this isn’t quite what I thought it was going to be. Passion fruit can be strong but I can’t even taste it. The stevia is way too strong.

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.

Still sweeter than I’d like, and with a weird, bitter, and almost soapy (!?) stevia aftertaste :(

Very refreshing and thirst-quenching. I think I like the Earl Grey lemonade I made earlier this week better, taste-wise. But this was good to gulp down after a bike ride.
