Chadwick Bay Lite Half and Half

Chadwick Bay Lite Half and Half

Splenda kills me. I can't deal with the taste of it and I might rather die of dehydration by the ultra-super-sweetness of it.

That aside, I will analyze this drink without that bit as many people are looking for a diet version of this classic beverage.

It's pretty good. It's got a nice, sour bite from the lemonade and the tea smooths it out. I would probably recommend this over an Arizona Arnold Palmer Lite because the aspartame in that is stronger than the Splenda is this so if you're going to be dieting and drinking a half and half, you might want more flavor and less fake sugar.

I am rating this as a diet drink, not as something that I would drink regularly. If you don't like all the sugars because you diet or just don't like sugars because you're 100 years old, I would drink this if I were you.

Jones Organics Green Tea Mandarin

Jones Organics Green Tea Mandarin

Can you do me a favor? Go in the fridge and get that mug of tea that I left in there a few hours ago. Thanks. Hey! I didn't say you could taste it. I know it tastes like I put a butt load of sugar in it. That's because I did. That's how I like my tea. Yes I know I have the drinking habits of a child. I've accepted that fact.

This really does taste like I brewed some mandarin green tea, added a whole lot of sugar, and let it steep for a while before putting it into the fridge to get cold. You know what. I like it.

Natural Brew Chai Cola

Natural Brew Chai Cola

This drink had me intrigued from when I first saw it since I love cola and chai. I'm so glad I wasn't disappointed. The soda has a really strong chai smell and taste, but in a good way. It went down really smoothly and the cola complimented the chai tea really well. I would drink this everyday if I could.

Bigelow Organic Green Tea Lemon Ginger

Bigelow Organic Green Tea Lemon Ginger

Bigelow, the company that has been making tea in bags is now making iced tea and it's good. Very true to it’s flavor. I will admit that I do not like ginger too much. I think that it tastes like an old woman. Remember violet candy and gum? I might sound like a hypocrite, but I liked the gum a lot, but that reminded me of chewing on an old woman. Come on...someone agree with me here. Violet gum tastes like chewing on an old woman. Man...alright...

So this tea is lemon and ginger. Both flavors are very apparent and they make a wonderful match. It's great. You initially get the ginger and then it's followed up by lemon-town USA.

Something I didn't know is that this tea, as is their other one that I will review shortly, is (at least) bottled by Arizona. I don't know if Arizona bought Bigelow or Bigelow is just renting their space temporarily when they need to bottle iced tea but who cares. They're doing good things in that plant. Keep up the good work Arizona/Bigelow team.

Archer Farms Simply Balanced Pomegranate Yumberry

Archer Farms Simply Balanced Pomegranate Yumberry

My girlfriend got this drink, got maybe 1/4 through it, and said she really didn't like it and offered it up to me. I was expecting it to be completely terrible. As it turns out it wasn't that bad. It's much better than the passion fruit mango one I had a while ago. It really doesn't taste like green tea at all to me though. I guess it's that "green tea powder" I mentioned in my last review. This one does actually taste like pomegranate though. So it's got that going for it. I think if Archer Farms started actually brewing the green tea instead of using the powder, they would have a pretty decent drink on their hands.

Amazake Rice Shake Tiger Chai

Amazake Rice Shake Tiger Chai

Whenever I see a new vegan milkshake, I feel the need to try it. I have never had a milkshake made with rice milk before, but when I saw this was chai flavored I had to try it. Sadly, it doesn't have a strong chai taste to it. It mostly taste like almonds and nutmeg. The consistency is really good, not too thin and not too thick. While I'm not crazy about this flavor, it shows promise for the other flavors Amazake offers.

World Classics Trading Company Sweetened Black Tea With Raspberry

World Classics Trading Company Sweetened Black Tea With Raspberry

A friend gave me this tea to review the other day. It's not bad. It reminds me a lot of Brisk Raspberry Tea. It's sweetened with high fructose corn syrup, so it's a bit thicker than I like my iced tea. It also doesn't taste much like actual raspberries, but it does have the fake raspberry flavor that people are used to. Not great, not terrible. It's just an okay iced tea.

Jones Organics Red Tea Peach

Jones Organics Red Tea Peach

I'm kind of into these Jones Organics teas. They are pretty much just brewed tea with a whole bunch of cane sugar added to it, with some natural flavorings. I don't know if I've ever had red tea before, but it's pretty good. The flavor of the tea and cane sugar does fight with the peach flavor a little. You can tell that there is the flavor of an actual peach fighting to get through, but the sugar man is keeping it down. I'm definitely going to try the other flavors of this if I see them around.

Pom Tea Pomegranate Lychee Green Tea

Pom Tea Pomegranate Lychee Green Tea

When I picked this up I, of course, didn't really look at it. I saw that it was Pom Tea, and I figured it was Pomegranate Green Tea. When I got home and opened it, I could instantly smell the lychee, which was a nice surprise. This is a nice blend of pomegranate and lychee. The two fruits combined create a rich bitter yet sweet flavor. I've had lychee tea before that a friend described as tasting like "sucking on an old ladies dirty clothes." Luckily this tastes nothing like that at all. Pom can be a little expensive, but it’s a specialty drink with insane antioxidant properties. It's worth every cent.

New Leaf Black Tea

New Leaf Black Tea

I like iced tea. A lot. I don't really buy it without being green tea or oolong or jasmine or at least something with additional flavor. When I got to a restaurant I usually like to take a load off by getting an unsweetened tea because the alternative is horrid, super sweet, super syrupy tea.

I've been a fan of New Leaf since my first bottle a year or two ago. It was just clearly a good quality tea. It's actually nice to unwind with a nice unsweetened tea every once in a while. This tea is nice. Since it's unsweetened, you could drink it at any temperature. I drank it cold and it was very refreshing. It only tasted like black tea and that's all one could ask for.
