Episode 207: Snapple Peach Tea

Ah, Snapple. They claim that their beverages are “made from the best stuff on Earth”, which in the case of this Peach Tea is a mix of black and green tea along with natural peach flavors. Let’s give it a go!

It’s a pretty well-balanced tea! Snapple has definitely captured that zing of a fresh peach, even if there’s a bit of a chemical aftertaste. Whatever the mix of black and green teas are in this blend, they give the tea a nice body without being too heavy or syrupy. Not bad!

Episode 222: Honest Tea Mango White Tea

Honest Tea was kind enough to send me a six pack of teas to review for the show, so let’s keep this iced tea streak going! First up, I’m trying their Mango White Tea which includes mango puree, cane sugar, and agave.

It’s really crisp, and the mango is a nice complement to the lightly sweetened tea. Don’t expect to be bowled over with mango flavor here — it is just a tad sweet, after all — but it’s definitely a nice change of pace.

Episode 244: Honest Tea Peach Oo-La-Long Tea

I’m slowly working my way through these bottled teas from Honest Tea, and the next one on my list is their Peach Oo-La-Long Tea. Organic oolong and black tea is brewed up with cane sugar, agave syrup, and peach puree.

Two words come to mind when I drink this: unripened peach. I don’t know if this is just because it’s a tad sweet, but the bitter aftertaste doesn’t make this a very enjoyable tea to drink. It’s more like Peach Oo-no-no.

Episode 279: Honest Tea Heavenly Lemon Tulsi Herbal Tea

I’m on the last of my bottled teas from Honest Tea! The final tea is this Heavenly Lemon Tulsi Rama Herbal Tea. I’ve tried tulsi rama on the show before, so I’m not foreign to it. Let’s see how Honest Tea’s take on it tastes!

I’m a fan! You do get that distinct basil flavor of the tulsi rama, but the lemon inclusions give a nice counterbalance to that sharp, savory coolness of the tulsi rama. I’d wager it doesn’t even need to be sweetened, but the little bit of sugar in here does help tie all the flavors together. Nice!

Episode 303: Teas’ Tea Green Jasmine Tea

If you’ve really got a hankering for some tea on a hot summer’s day, you can’t go wrong with this big honkin’ 2 liter bottle of Teas’ Tea’s Green Jasmine Tea. I love it!

The jasmine flavor is bright and floral throughout this tea, but it does have a slightly bitter aftertaste. Because of the size, it’s probably best for serving a crowd. Luckily, this also comes in a convenient 16.9 ounce size as well. Drink up!
