Hmmm… You know, out of the four or five new teas I’ve tried lately, I think all but one I’ve had to add? Odd.
Anyway, so guess what. Quick story.
I’m not rich.
Spectacularly not rich.
Because of this, when I get extra money, I tend to get excited and try new things that I normally couldn’t afford. And, long story short, that’s how I ended up buying a bunch of new organic iced tea cans to try!
This is the third one I’ve had, but the first I’ve reviewed. I don’t know why but I didn’t think to review the other two. If I have duplicate cans, I’ll go back and do it, but I’m not trying to do them from memory. I do know that I liked the Gojiberry one and didn’t like the Half n Half one, but besides that, I’m not writing reviews.
So here’s this. This is the “Super Fruit” can that I got, and I’m telling you now, I didn’t realize this had sugar in it. When I grabbed these, I saw the first can said “Zero Calorie” and thought they were all sugar-free and just went wild. So hopefully this doesn’t cause issues with me!
So the smell in can is very tart. You can literally smell the tart. (This should be interesting.) It doesn’t smell bad though so we’ll try it.
Taste is… wow, not as tart as I thought. It’s actually pleasantly balanced. There’s a hint of tart, but it’s nice. The sweetness is right at the edge of too much but doesn’t cross the line. It isn’t what I’d call “Lightly Sweetened” though. The fruitiness, on the other hand, is mild but still very present. The only thing I’m sad about here is the green tea base. Maybe it’s because of how much Matcha I’ve been drinking, but the green tea in this is very subdued. There’s no grass flavor at all. I’d be interested to know what kind of green tea they used, but considering this is a mass-produced product, it’s likely not high or even mid-grade. At least it isn’t bitter, but that could be the sugar.
This is very refreshing. On a hot night like tonight, I welcome the splash of fruit in this. It’s not overpowering and it’s sweet enough for my tastes. All in all good stuff. I’m going to have to try more of these Steaz teas. I think I have at least half a dozen more cans in the fridge of differing flavors. I’ll try to remember to review them all as I go.
Till next time!
