Teas' Tea Organic Hibiscus Green Tea

Teas' Tea Organic Hibiscus Green Tea

The Ito En / Teas’ Tea company doesn’t mess around. They keep things simple, natural and delicious. Their iced teas actually taste like tea instead of sugar, like most companies. They know the secret that tea is delicious on its own and it does not need to be disguised by sweeteners. Sure sometimes you want a little something extra in it, but for those times you certainly do not need to go overboard and dump the equivalent of a semi’s load into a single bottle. With this “Lightly Sweet” tea they added 20g of sugar, as opposed to the 30-40g range that a lot of teas fall into. To be honest I didn’t even need that much sugar. I think it detracts a bit from the green tea and hibiscus. When you use quality ingredients you don’t need to mask the way they taste, and there is nothing but quality in this bottle. Do I think the floral taste would have been better without any sugar? Yes, I do. Do I really mind that they added some? No. It is still delicious. I believe hibiscus is at its peak when it is paired with some spices, such as cinnamon, but I do think it has a lot to offer in solo form and this drink proves that.

Blue Monkey Pure Coconut Water Coconut

Blue Monkey Pure Coconut Water Coconut

There is a small island off the coast of Thailand that is uninhabited, that is except for monkeys. Well, monkeys and coconuts. It is also home of the world’s most depressed monkey. You see this little guy loves humans, and the other monkeys are total jerks to him. They steal his food, push him out of the trees when he’s sleeping and worst of all they chase any human away that comes further inland than the beach. Those other dumb monkeys love playing games with the coconuts as well.

In order to get some revenge/spend some quality time with the humans on the beach, our sad little furry friend goes out at night, after he’s been pushed out of a tree, and gathers all the coconuts he can on the beach. The humans then come and pick them up, give him some bananas and they have their own little games. Those few hours before the rest of the monkeys wake up are the best part of the little guy’s day.

The humans take all of the coconuts, drain them and sell the liquid. They appreciate all the work the little guy does for them so they named their product after him. “Sad Monkey” didn’t have the right ring to it, so they went with Blue Monkey. It’s nothing but pure coconut water. It’s refreshing, tasty and when you drink it you can think about how it brings joy to what is otherwise a lifetime drenched in misery.

Herbert loved to travel. He especially loved to sail. He was on a trip to Thailand and was sailing around when his boat hit some coral and took on some water. He docked at the closest island to investigate what could be the problem.

He tied up his boat and started to look around at the damage. A tall man approached him with a package and said, "This is for you." Herbert looked inside and there was some rice, vegetables and a can of coconut water. He sat down on the dock and ate and it was very good. He especially liked the coconut water. It was different than the coconut water he had in the States. It was sweeter but still unsweetened. It was clean tasting and didn't care about the heat like some other coconut waters he had.

He repaired the ship and was about to sail off and the tall man came back. Herbert thanked him and asked where he got that drink from. He said that his brother works for the factory a couple miles away and he gets to bring home cases occasionally. Herbert shook the man's hand and thanked him for his hospitality. Boat accident and all, Herbert had a wonderful time in the sun on an island making new friends, eating great food and enjoying a new drink he was sure to buy more of.

Pearl Royal Coconut Water Lemon Lime

Pearl Royal Coconut Water Lemon Lime

In a world where flavored beverages are overly heavy on the flavor, to an extent that the taste of the base is lost, it’s nice when a company takes it easy on the old flavor tasters. Pearl Royal does just that with this delicious coconut water. There is but a hint of lemon and lime flavor. I wouldn’t be surprised if they stumbled upon this when someone didn’t properly rinse a glass that has been used to house some sort of lemon lime beverage and then refilled it with coconut water. It’s such a minor addition of flavor, but it goes a long way in making your refreshment experience just a tad different. Oh yeah it also comes in this awesome container, so that’s a bonus.

Pearl Royal Coconut Water

Pearl Royal Coconut Water

Coconut waters have become the new apple/orange juice; for the most part they don’t vary too much from brand to brand. I mean when you’re sole ingredient is water straight from a coconut there isn’t going to be much variation is there? Sure the companies could add flavoring to them, but if you ask me that isn’t necessary, when you have something that is great and completely refreshing, why much it up with additives?

Pearl Royal knows the game. So instead of altering their product itself they gave it interesting/fun packaging. Inside this packaging that is made to look like a coconut of some sort is an ordinary can of coconut water. Attached to that can is a little string that comes out of the top of the “coconut.” When you pull the string it opens the can. You then stick the attached straw through the hole and enjoy the nectar within. If only opening a real coconut was that easy. There are plenty of videos online of people attempting, and failing, to open the real thing. I’ve certainly been vexed in my attempts in the past as well.

Overall this is a nice branding technique for a beverage that is nothing new, but also very tasty. Here’s your future.

Rising Sun Thai Coconut Water with Pulp

Rising Sun Thai Coconut Water with Pulp

Sometimes you just have those days where you just need to get out of the city. You feel like you’ve been indoors too much, and even when you’re not it just doesn’t feel like the outdoors. You get antsy and start to go insane, and you need to be in the green. Actually, maybe that doesn’t happen to normal people, but I most definitely am not normal and yesterday I was just losing my mind. As a result I jumped in my car with some good music and just drove an hour out into the forest. There was no sign of civilization around me for miles. I breathed in deep and took it all in. it was exactly what I needed to even myself out. I ended up hiking for about ten miles and it was glorious, I even saw a bald eagle. Stupidly I only brought one bottle of water, a Cliff Bar and an apple. By the time I was done I was exhausted and dehydrated. There was only one beverage that would give me the refreshment that I so desperately craved and that was a can of coconut water.

This is pretty standard pure coconut water. There is nothing in it but the water and some pulp. By some pulp I mean a lot pulp. More than there probably needed to be, but I can’t see anyone buys coconut water with pulp unless they loved the stuff, so in that case it’s probably just perfect. The can did just what I needed it to do, and it did so with a pleasant taste. Man, for someone who has such an intense hatred for toasted coconut, I sure have come to enjoy these drinks.

Rising Sun Thai Coconut Water with PULP (With Pulp)

Rising Sun Thai Coconut Water

Rising Sun Thai Coconut Water

Coconut water; I don't know what I like and I’m not sure what I don’t like about you. I think the stuff I like might have some sugar in it. This is a little sweet but you can tell that it's "naturally" sweet and not sweetened with anything. No, I am not just reading the ingredients. I am tasting it and making an evaluation. You think I base everything off the ingredients? Sometimes I don't even read them. I just go by the seat of my pants and hope for the best.

Coconut water. This is naturally sweetened but it's also, I feel, very strong. If you are on the fence about coconut water, this might not be the place to start. There are weaker coconut waters out there which I needn’t name. If you love coconut, which a lot of you do, this is going to be a fantastic treat for you. I suppose I just need to put everyone in buckets. Call me a racist, but if categorizing people by the way they like their coconut, then I'm a regular David Duke.

Zola Coconut Water Espresso

Zola Coconut Water Espresso

Look at you with your designer jeans and sunglasses that cost as much as a months rent. You are so cool, you and your fancy Italian loafers with matching tie and Spider Veloce. You're so cool. Well look at me. Sure I dress like I have for the last twenty years but I'm cool, too, right? I'm drinking two cool things; espresso and coconut water. Those are cool things, right? It's important to be cool. It's how we put ourselves on imaginary pedestals. This is good stuff, too. I might not have the finer things like those dope brown kid leather driving gloves that beautifully match your wooden steering wheel and stick shift. This drink though brother, this drink is smooth and only half tastes like coconut. The coffee isn't totally too strong like you might like it in your Italian mind with your glorious hair. Look, bro. I'll say it. I don't care. You've got great hair. Try this, dude. No, I'm'a call you "dude" right? You're talking to me and I'm going to talk to you like you're talking to me. This is a good drink. I don't know what kind of standards you are used to but seriously this is good. You know what? I'm done. No. I'm done with you. You and your beautiful tight fade and tight beard. Peace, bruh. You are an elitist. I'm trying to share with you and you're being a real jerk. Now I'm the elitist. Peace.

Zola 100% Natural Coconut Water with Espresso, 17.5 Ounce (Pack of 12)

Zola Coconut Water With Pulp

Zola Coconut Water With Pulp

Whoever decided that coconut water should come packaged in cans like this has done well for the branding of the fruit. Coke has it’s unique bottle shape and coconut water has tall cans with ridges. I can’t think of anything else that comes in this sort of can. When I see a can of this nature I instantly think of coconut water and that is great from an advertising point of view.

In the past when I heard the word Zola I expected it to be followed by Jesus (she’s a musician if you didn’t know). Now I will also think of coconut water and nicely shaped cans. This is a fine coconut water. It’s nothing new, but it’s not trying to be. It’s simply natural coconut water with some pulp in it. Nothing stands out about it, but do you really want something wacky from coconut water? I’m guessing now, you want refreshment.

The pulp in here are little hard chunks of raw coconut. They are a little bigger than what I would refer to as pulp, but I enjoyed them a great deal. It’s nice to chew on them, and they add a little texture to the beverage.

Zola: doing coconuts right and making them proud.

Teas' Tea Latte Chai Tea Latte

Teas' Tea Latte Chai Tea Latte

Is chai tea magic? I mean it doesn’t involve eye of newt or toe of frog, but there is a very specific list of ingredients that when combined together make something truly wonderful. I get the feeling that if you mixed things up and added the wrong thing in comical movie way the results might not be as bad as the silver screen portrays it, but it could get gross, fast. You add cinnamon, cardamom, ginger root, black pepper, cloves and star anise to black tea and bam; you have a beverage that has been enjoyed by many forms of royalty throughout the centuries. I can only imagine that if those ingredients happened to be mixed up that some sort of beheading or torture would have resulted. I mean everyone was treated as savages back then, right?

I don’t know at what point milk started being added to this spiced tea, but whoever came up with it deserves a tip of my nonexistent hat. While straight up chai tea is great, the addition of milk makes it so much smoother and more enjoyable to drink. Chill that and you’ve somehow made it even better.

Tea’s Tea has smoothed out their chai tea to the max. This is ridiculously enjoyable as it has a spicy flavor that is not overpowering and at the same time it doesn’t taste like milk with spices added to it. This is still primarily a tea, which is as things should be. The only thing I could think of that would improve this would be for it to be made with soy or almond milk instead of skim milk powder. That would be right in the pocket.

Now I just need someone to make me a chai green tea latte. I bet it would be amazing, but too bad it would probably also be considered black magic that would cause it’s created to lose his/her head to a blade.
