This was another RTD that I picked up from Safeway the other day, since I didn’t hate the mojitea I figured I’d be safe with another try from Argo. I like this one much better than the mojitea … LOTS of bits of ginger in it and I like that. I taste the touch of lemon and it offsets the ginger flavor a bit, which is nice, but I feel like the green tea gets a little lost in this RTD, but fortunately, it isn’t too sickeningly sweet so that’s a plus. I could definitely drink this one again.

I loved the amount of ginger in this! There are pieces of candied ginger mixed in with the leaves and the taste is lightly sweet and spicy with ginger. I really enjoy the green tea base they use in this. I know it’s NOT sencha, but that’s about all I can tell with my lack of green tea experience. I didn’t do a 2nd steep yet, but I saved the leaves, so if I get around to it this afternoon I’ll let you know. I am craving black tea now that it is lunchtime.

I missed the hint of lemon in this, will try harder to find it next time!

Cofftea

I don’t like when companies don’t tell you what tea is used for flavored teas.

Meghann M

Me neither…I’d love to try this green tea alone, but not sure what it is. I suppose I could contact Argo teas…they have a twitter…

For questions you would probably get a faster response via email.

Another sample from Meghann M. I didn’t realize getting random tea samples is so much fun. Just felt like after having a huge dinner, and really getting sort of tired of doing homework, green tea would be the best pick me up.

used 1.5~2tsp for 5ish oz. no sugar. Not really quite sure what temperature or length I steeped it for, but I guesstimated. This is why I rarely get green teas. I don’t have any type of thermometer and dealing with heating water in a microwave is very tricky.

The color is very light green, it’s been a while since I’ve had a tea this color, and it makes me excited. Can’t really smell much of anything though. Hmm, I’m wondering if I steeped this long enough. The taste is very very subtle, I can barely taste it. Let me apply newton’s law of cooling and maybe I’ll taste some more flavors! (The fact that that was the first thing that popped into my mind, makes me think I need to take more breaks inbetween doing homework…)

That helped, as it cools down I’m tasting some hints of green tea and even some ginger, but it’s really not strong at all. If i go for a resteep I will try to make it longer to get more flavor out.

ETA: second steep I added some rock sugar and steeped it a little longer with hotter water. Much more flavor in this cup, and the ginger adds such a nice kick to the tea! The mix of ginger and green is such a good one! If only my first steep had caught all this flavor!

Meghann M

I didn’t get too much flavor out of this either, the ginger was just a light flavoring in my cup as well.

Kathryn Ann

Hmm, I guess it’s just a very subtle tea then. The bottom of my cup had the most flavor of it, from the residue of the green tea!

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.

slygirl

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

A review of Green Tea Ginger Twist by Argo Tea

I purchased this tea while doing grocery shopping at Shaws Market last week and I had placed one bottle in the fridge and forgotten about it until today. I decided to take it with us while out at a fair. Once again, I did not enjoy this fair, I am sorry to say. Anyhow, I shook this tea vigorously before pouring it into my trusty travel drink carrier and sipped it along the way.

Tea color is darkish brown and smells strongly of the spicy ginger and once tasted it is there to meet those tantalizing taste buds. Tea is very sweet and is a strong black tea.
I would have liked/enjoyed it more without the pulp.

This is a review for the bottled iced tea sold at Whole Foods. At $2.49, it’s about double the price of Honest Tea (who has the home advantage in the DC area). What lured me into purchasing this tea was the packaging. The chic glass bottles with plastic screw-on lid are reusable and can easily find its place on the shelf amongst the eco-friendly SIGG bottles. This is the second flavor I’ve tried and I admit, I bought it so I could get another glass bottle (LOL). The color is a murky brown. Upon opening the bottle, a sweet hint of vanilla, mingled with the spicy aroma of ginger is detected. Taste: sweet, very sweet. This sweetened iced tea is on par with the other sweetened iced teas that Honest Tea sells. I am a big fan of ginger and this was not “gingery” enough for me. I look forward to trying other flavors, but will stick to making my own iced ginger green tea at home.

(review of the bottled version)

I love ginger, and this tea was STRONG with ginger. There was so much ginger that I was literally chewing little spicy, bitter, tangy pieces of actual ginger.

This was also SUPER sweet…

I finished this because I like ginger, but at the same time I wouldn’t buy it again.

I have something against these bottled Argo teas… I think its because to me they don’t feel refined enough to come out of a bottle. Most of the ones I’ve tried of theirs are either too strong, too sweet, or there’s something off.

I have high hopes for the sangria one!

There’s green tea in this?! There’s lemon in this?

Great bottle, but I don’t know why they’re filling it with… whatever factory rejects they’re filling it with. Watery. All you can taste is the vanilla and sugar. Occasionally you’ll get a burn of ginger as an aftertaste. There is no universe in which this murky vanilla-flavored sugar water is worth almost $3.
