drank Mojitea by Argo Tea
122 tasting notes

I saw this at the grocery store and thought I’d give it a shot, since it was $2 and the glass bottle looked like it could be reused for a drinking glass. (Ah, remember when POM teas used to come in glass bottles that could be used for that purpose?)

I love mojitos, but this tea is one of the nastiest things I have ever tasted. It’s not like a mojito at all! When I first opened the bottle, I thought, “This stuff smells like marinara sauce. WTF?” But I still had hope that it would taste OK.

Not at all. The moment I tasted it I wanted to gag. It’s sickeningly sweet, like there’s waaaaay too much cane sugar in it, but also sour. The mint flavor, which I hoped would dominate, is almost missing – the only hint of it comes from the slightly minty aftertaste, but this too is dulled by the sticky-sweetness. It’s gross!

Sniffing it again, I’m wondering if “marinara sauce” isn’t quite right. It reminds me of something thinner…like the sauce in canned Spaghetti-Os. Either way, NOTHING about this drink makes me think of mojitos!!

I’m not sure if I should “like” this one or not. I usually use “like” to mark that I’ve read the note, but, given how terrible an experience you’ve had with this one, perhaps I will just use this comment as my mark.

Ew that sounds nasty. makes a mental note never to try this tea D:

Don’t do it! It’s awful.
Also, the bottle doesn’t work as a reusable glass, because it has a hidden, narrow screw top on it. So I’m doubly disappointed.
