Feeling too lazy to really flesh out this Steepster entry; oh well…
This was fine; I grabbed a bottle from the Depanneur on the commute home last week because I was just dying of thirst and didn’t think I could wait the forty minutes until I was home. I practically chugged it – it was very refreshing. That said, it wasn’t really super tasty. Really generic tropical fruit vibes – didn’t taste specifically like mango at all.
It may have just been the regular peach flavour that I drank, and not the diet version – but honestly at this point tonight I’m too tired to both look it up and then, if it was the non diet version, create a new Steepster entry…
Anyway; I guess I’m exploring the different Snapple flavours now!? That wasn’t anything I set out intentionally to do, but it’s just so fucking hot in Montreal right now that it’s near unbearable to walk from work to the metro station without grabbing something cold to drink on the way – and I still prefer crappy RTD iced teas over getting a soda.
Lemon is still my favourite; but this was alright. Better than raspberry, that’s for sure. I know it says this is all natural, but it really tastes like an artificial peach flavour to me. Sort of like Tim Horton’s Peach Juice or Fuzzy Peaches without the sourness. It’s fine; but tooooo sweet!
Just a quick pick from the Depanneur before heading out thrift shopping for the afternoon – early in the week, that is. Somehow I forgot to make myself a travel mug of tea before an afternoon out; how does that even happen!? This was fine for hydration, but tasted too sweet and not enough like raspberry or tea. I prefer the lemon flavour, for sure, if I have to choose a quick RTD option…
Ok, another added tea. This must be a new thing because none of the varieties are on here.
I bought this at the grocery store because it was part of a promotion. Bought 2 bottles. Naturally I got the unsweetened variety, but had automatically assumed these would need sweetener because what grocery store tea doesn’t?
Well first bottle, added two splendas right off. Took a swig. Instant regret. It actually tasted like really quality tea that someone had tried to ruin with sweetener. So I was forced to add a third splenda so that all i could taste was the sweetener. Choked that down and moved on.
Today, Did NOT make that same mistake. Cracked open the second bottle, and wouldn’t you know, this is actually really tasty. It almost reminds me if someone tried to ice a yunnan golden black. It has smooth cocoa notes, along with a background natural sweetness to it. I had to double check that there was no honey in it because it almost tasted as though there was. Nope, no honey. Just really good quality black tea. I can’t believe it. It’s a grocery store Iced tea that I don’t have to drown in splenda. I’m definitely going to have to invest in more of this.
Note: The ingredients include “Citric Acid”. If it’s in there, it’s just enough to act as a preservative. I don’t taste anything citrus. Honestly, this may be my new goto quicky iced tea. It supposedly has 0 calories, so I can pound it down guilt free. Great stuff. Highly recommend.
Flavors: Cocoa, Honey
There is a little bit of rocker & punk in me, and more so that I’ve tried this. I grabbed this today, wanting to try a new Snapple. It’s Diet, so I was immediately drawn to it. Then I saw it was Bret Michaels’ blend, so I was in!
This is a hearty iced tea with a vibrant and mouth-satisfying blend of tropical fruits. I wouldn’t compare this to other iced teas, however, as I didn’t brew it myself. But this was a great treat today, and with only 10 calories in the entire bottle, my body thanked me for not opting for a 220 cal bottle of Coke.
You know how I was whining about residence kicking students out during the winter break? Someone finally got back to me and said that grad students are allowed to stay after all! So perhaps I should accept, but I only have three days left, so let’s hope they could get the contract and money in three days. Got to make up my mind soon!
So this tea, if we should call it that. I’ve had a tall boy of this in my mom’s cupboard since last year. No Frill’s had them on sale for like 50 cents a piece so why not. Had it chilling in the fridge, just cracked it open, and it reminds me of my childhood. Well, more accurately, when I was 10- to 13-years-old. That’s when I got into Lipton Brisk iced tea. Used to crave it, even after basketball practice.
But yeah, it’s super sweet, but not bad.
This is a bit of a guilty pleasure of mine. It is expensive, but tasty. It doesn’t taste as fake as some diet bottled teas. I would prefer not to have artificial sweetener, but this is a good alternative to sugary sweetened teas. The tropical flavoring is great. The tea flavor is kind of typical of bottled teas and not super strong, but still tasty.
