B is for… Blackberry Brisk!
Yes, this is barely a tea – but I just feel this need/compulsion to try every new tea related RTD beverage out there. They’re usually not that bad for the type of product they are, and I like to know what’s out on the market. Call it curiosity.
I don’t think this really tastes distinctly like blackberry at all, but that said it’s tasty! Very sweet generic berry with that kind of candy like “wild berry” flavouring that just tastes purple!? Having a whole can was a bit much in terms of sweetness level for me, but it was refreshing after a long work day and the right size to be enjoyed over a few episodes of anime.
I’ve been putting off writing this tasting note for weeks now, not because of the tea itself but because I have a really cute photo of the can (love the art style/design) that I wanted to share on instagram first – but it never feels like the right time to post a can of Brisk iced tea on my instagram feed, so I’m just gonna get this one out of the way instead of putting it off…
It’s very sweet, but ultimately not bad – maybe my favourite of the Brisk iced tea flavours actually!? It’s hard to describe it as anything other than sweet white peach though. That’s just how these canned RTD iced teas typically are though. Not sure if this is something I would buy again; I guess maybe for a quick refreshing iced tea fix if I didn’t have other options?
