very refreshing and the flavor is fairly natural for a RTD tea. Wouldn’t buy a whole case, but would buy a bottle or two again.

drank Green Tea Ginger Twist by Argo Tea
2709 tasting notes

I am drinking the bottled version of this. I didn’t read the label first and had it with dinner (miso noodle soup) and was shocked by the flavor clash. First off, this tea is sweeter than I’d like it to be, which would probably be ok on it’s own, but the fact that Argo for some reason added NATURAL VANILLA FLAVOR to this blend is just unfathomable. Why?! Between the sweetness and the vanilla, I can barely taste the tea, muchless the ginger. More ginger, less sugar, and NO VANILLA would make this great. As it is, it is almost undrinkable. It certainly doesn’t “go” with dinner, but maybe it will be more palatable on its own as a mid-day pick-me-up. I’m just disappointed because I picked this flavor to go with dinner, never expecting a ginger green tea blend to be so sweet & desserty!

That said, I will probably buy the other two flavors I saw in the store – Carolina Honey and Mojitea.

PS – the very nice thick glass bottle with a heavy plastic cap that screws on firmly is a nice perk. I will definitely be keeping & reusing it.

Definitely agree: it’s entirely too sweet! I preferred the Mojitea—that was a great pick-me-up in the sweltering summer heat!

drank Mixed Berry Green by Lipton
2709 tasting notes

Blegh! Fake berry flavor alert!! I cold brewed three teabags or abt. 8 hrs. DH & I each choked down a glass and then poured with pitcher out. Maybe if you drink Lipton’s RTD flavored bottles of tea you might like this, but we both found the berry flavor overpoweringly strong and underwhelmingly artificial.

Preparation
Iced 8 min or more
