From Takeya

Grown in the famous tea-producing region in Northeast India, Assam Black Tea brews to a classically brisk, smooth taste with hints of fruit and honey. The hearty black tea has a rich aroma and is a great base tea for milk and honey, and strong fruit-infused flavors. Takeya’s Flash Chill Iced Teas are made with premium, all-natural ingredients, free of preservatives and artificial sweeteners, and are specially selected and blended for brewing iced tea.

Overall I would say that Takeya has delivered exactly what the package described, a classic black tea. Much like the iced tea I grew up with the flavor isn’t particularly strong. It does have a slightly sweet, almost fruity flavor that is perfect for iced tea. I did find that once I added ice the tea immediately began to cloud, something that doesn’t bother me, but is a huge sticking point with some iced tea traditionalists. Brewing the tea hot, then allowing it to cool in the fridge instead of adding ice helped somewhat with the issue of clouding while also giving me a stronger flavored tea. Unfortunately that meant I used 4 packages of tea instead of 2 when making a full pitcher. Since there are only 6 to a box, so this method isn’t really cost efficient. I’ve seen these priced around $3.99 per box (and as much as $7.99.) At that price I’ll most likely continue to measure out my tea into sandwich bags if I want to leave it for my husband or take my Flash Chill pitcher with me when I travel.
