From Republic of Tea

We have replaced the tea leaves found in traditional iced tea with the next best thing – fresh harvested fine wind grape skins from beautiful Sonoma County, California. These wine grape skins impart nuanced, sophisticated flavors that are perfect for entertaining or to enjoy anytime.
Sonoma Iced Teas also contain multiple polyphenols such as resveratrol, making it a great addition to a balanced diet. This vacation in a glass has a base of Sonoma Chardonnay fine wine grape skins infused with tropical pineapple and sweet peach notes.

What a waste of money. Not that it wasn’t tasty, but really, eleven dollars for 2.12 ounces (60 grams) of herbal tea? We are not talking exceptional Chinese Pu-ehr or something, but used grape skins with herbs and a little dried fruit. I drank it hot, not iced, because it seemed to me like it would have been even weaker had I added the recommended 2 cups of ice. It has a somewhat watery taste to it, even with just a pint of water steeping the bag.
The flavor is good, sweet ( I had added a spoonful of honey to the pint of tea), with a nice melony quality to it (melons taste of water). The whole cachet of “Chardonnay fine wine grape skins” (as stated on the label) reeks of “The Emperor’s New Clothes” to me. Just because Republic of Tea bought the fancy grape skins and figured out a way to market them to us dehydrated—they’re still weak, and cost way too much for the small amount of tea provided in only six bags. There’s approximately 2 teaspoons to 1 tablespoon’s worth of leaves per each large teabag (which they called a pouch). Do yourself a favor and buy some good quality organic fruit juice instead. You’ll get your money’s worth as well as nutritive value.
