From Monster Energy

According to legend Chinese Emperor Shennong accidentally discovered tea when a divine wind blew some leaves into his boiling water.

5000 years later our Dragon Green Tea is made the same way, real tea slowly brewed to perfection.

Dragon Green Tea is light, refreshing and low in calories. Formulated with our badass energy blend for a distinctly modern twist on the original. A new legend is born.

Saw this while grocery shopping today and couldn’t resist picking it up.

The marketing is just… yikes.

It looks like a very stereotypical Westernized take on something “Asian inspired”. Plus, the other flavour they’re carrying as part of this line up is a yerba mate blend, and it uses the same weird dragon motif. When I looked this up on the Monster website, to add it to Steepster, I did the BIGGEST eye roll because the copy writing for the product description references the tired “Shennong discovered tea with a leaf blew into his cup” myth. Ugh.

Flavour wise, this is unsurprisingly not good. You know when you get “green tea” scented perfumes/body washes and things of that nature? There’s a very specific kind of scent that those products usually have that isn’t really accurate at all the the real flavour of green tea; it’s hard to describe but if you’ve ever smelled one of those products I feel like you probably know EXACTLY what I mean. This tastes like how that fake sweet/floral and cosmetic green tea smells. Like, fake green tea…

It’s actually a LOT more light and refreshing that I would have ever pictured a Monster energy drink to me – and if you’re not a green tea drinker and you’re sort of wanting that idolized commercial green tea type of profile I imagine this could be dangerously chuggable. Especially because so many energy drinks just taste like ass. That was the primary reason I stopped drinking them years ago – they just NEVER tasted good.

I picked up the yerba mate flavour too – so I’m very curious to see how they approached that flavour profile…

I know exactly what you mean with fake green tea. It is nothing like a green tea.
