China Mist Organic Green Tea Wild Blueberry

China Mist Organic Green Tea Wild Blueberry

You would be wrong if you thought that reviewing all these drinks wouldn't concern me. I am concerned. Believe you me. When I get a chance to relax and drink some unsweetened tea, I jump at the opportunity. Since I have had nothing but good things from China Mist, I knew that I could save this one for a special occasion where I just couldn't handle any more sugar and needed to refresh my palate a little bit. That's just what this tea does. It's got a nice green tea flavor that starts you off, and then, right when you're on the edge, blueberry sweetness comes in to talk you down. It's actually very, very good and I will be buying more in the future, both in bottles and in tea bags, as China Mist produces both. Blueberry is like Bruce Willis where he's standing there, gun drawn, pointing at the criminal who's going to jump off some city skyscraper. You are that criminal. Why you would run to the top of a 64-story building because Bruce Willis caught you stealing a pack of Big League Chew, I have no idea, but you did, and Bruce cared about you enough to draw a gun on you and follow you to the rooftops. So in the end of the movie, he talks you down from the edge which was stupid for you to go to in the first place, you split the grape gum, and Samuel L. Jackson missed the whole thing because he's not in that scene because he's too busy in another scene chasing a woman on foot who is carrying his baby but she doesn't know it yet.

I think it went straight to DVD.

China Mist Organic Black Tea Tangerine Tea With Pomegranate Juice

China Mist Organic Black Tea Tangerine Tea With Pomegranate Juice

I for one am glad that the great pomegranate rush of 2007 is over. Don't get me wrong, I do enjoy pomegranate, but during that time it was everywhere you looked. It was as if there was a great surplus of the fruit, and companies were putting it in anything they could, just to get rid of it. I think enough time has passed that I can really start enjoying the fruit again and all of its antioxidant powers.
This is nice because it's not a tangerine/pomegranate tea. It's tangerine tea that was brewed and then mixed with pomegranate juice. The end result is a blend of two separate flavors that come in waves, instead of them being forced together. You can still taste the tea, but it still has a nice juicy flavor as well. Bravo on the drink, and the wonderful bottle.

China Mist Organic Green Tea Blackberry Jasmine Tea with Lemonade

China Mist Organic Green Tea Blackberry Jasmine Tea with Lemonade

For months a couple of my friends have been raving about how good the iced tea is at PF Changs. I really saw no other reason to eat there, so it remained a tempting mystery to me. When we got a couple bottles of China Mist, Mike did some research and informed me that this flavor is what they serve there.
When I drank it, the first thing I thought was "This does taste like iced tea that would be served in a restaurant," except it tastes like a super high-end restaurant iced tea. I think it's the lemonade that is in this that gives it that taste. You know those pesky restaurants always putting lemon wedges in your iced tea (not that I'm complaining). The lemonade in this isn't strong enough to make it like an Arnold Palmer, but there's enough there that you notice it. The blackberry also does not overpower the taste of the tea. It's nice and subtle.
Also, tea companies of the world take notice: We need more iced teas made with jasmine tea. Seriously it's so good. Why is it not embraced more?
In closing, I think I now have a reason to go eat what I can only assume to be mediocre Chinese food at the mall.

China Mist Organic Green Tea Lotus Pear

China Mist Organic Green Tea Lotus Pear

I don't like pears. Pears to me are just crappy apples. They're too hard, the taste is weak, and they look like apples and sometimes surprise me in things like fruit salad and regular salad.

That being said, I like this drink. I don't know what the taste of a lotus is, but I can tell you that this does taste vaguely of pears, but it's not bad. It gives you a nice, ultra-low, sweet/fruit taste, not unlike a real garbage pear. I personally like the taste it leaves you with. It's like a sweetish/tartish/bitterness taste. I would take a sip, swallow, and leave that strange lingering taste for a good thirty seconds to a minute before I would take another sip. It might be from the green tea, but it's a different bitterness that I'm not really used to and is hard to place.

All in all, it was a good drink. I didn't buy it so if it was up to me, I wouldn't have bought it because of my undying hatred for pears, but since it was in my possession, I'm happy that I took this nice voyage.

China Mist Organic Black Tea Dragon Fruit

China Mist Organic Black Tea Dragon Fruit

These teas have some of the best-looking bottles I've ever seen. The tea that it contains is right up there as well in the world of unsweetened teas. It tastes like a high quality black tea. The dragon fruit gives it a slightly soapy flavor, but somehow (don't ask me how they did it) it's in a good way. This would be great after a meal to cleanse your pallet. It would be incredible if this were also available in a sweetened version. It would be nice to have that option, but I still love what is available to me.
