There is a little bit of rocker & punk in me, and more so that I’ve tried this. I grabbed this today, wanting to try a new Snapple. It’s Diet, so I was immediately drawn to it. Then I saw it was Bret Michaels’ blend, so I was in!
This is a hearty iced tea with a vibrant and mouth-satisfying blend of tropical fruits. I wouldn’t compare this to other iced teas, however, as I didn’t brew it myself. But this was a great treat today, and with only 10 calories in the entire bottle, my body thanked me for not opting for a 220 cal bottle of Coke.
You know how I was whining about residence kicking students out during the winter break? Someone finally got back to me and said that grad students are allowed to stay after all! So perhaps I should accept, but I only have three days left, so let’s hope they could get the contract and money in three days. Got to make up my mind soon!
So this tea, if we should call it that. I’ve had a tall boy of this in my mom’s cupboard since last year. No Frill’s had them on sale for like 50 cents a piece so why not. Had it chilling in the fridge, just cracked it open, and it reminds me of my childhood. Well, more accurately, when I was 10- to 13-years-old. That’s when I got into Lipton Brisk iced tea. Used to crave it, even after basketball practice.
But yeah, it’s super sweet, but not bad.
This is a bit of a guilty pleasure of mine. It is expensive, but tasty. It doesn’t taste as fake as some diet bottled teas. I would prefer not to have artificial sweetener, but this is a good alternative to sugary sweetened teas. The tropical flavoring is great. The tea flavor is kind of typical of bottled teas and not super strong, but still tasty.
My husband and I are fans of The Celebrity Apprentice, and so we caved in and purchased this as well as the Trop A Rocka diet flavored Snapple. Hubby is diabetic, so he is drinking the Trop A Rocka, and I am allergic to aspartame, so I am drinking the Compassionberry (we were both rooting for Bret, though)
I don’t usually drink many RTD teas, because, well, they’re generally way too sweet for my taste and don’t usually taste much like tea.
Unfortunately, that is the case here, as well. I can definitely taste the sweet (very sweet), I can also taste the passionfruit and the strawberry flavorings… but I don’t taste much in the way of green or black teas.
But it is a good cause… and it isn’t horrible tasting, just a bit too sweet for my taste, and a bit more like fruit juice than tea. It would definitely be better than nothing if I were out and about.
Actually a bit disappointed about this one.
No amazing smell, and kinda limp on flavor.
Is it the green tea thats just over mellowed the mango?
Not a bad one, but its more a whispering of mango not the shout of the name.
And none of that smack in the face with a mango you know you had been expecting.
