Paradiso Peach Ice Tea

Paradiso Peach Ice Tea

“…that brings in the whole category of countries. Where to start? Well, the obvious one. The birthplace of spaghetti and pasta, all the oily stuff... Italy.” Very smooth Coop, but you forgot one thing; Italy also produces one hell of a peach ice tea under the Paradiso company. I don’t know if this would really pair well with pasta, but it would certainly be great to be sipping on a bottle of this while strolling through some Italian city or another, just taking it all in.
It says that it’s made with tea flavor, but it does taste more like real tea than any other “tea flavor” teas I’ve tried. The really star of this drink is the peach though. It has both peach juice and peach flavor in it. That means that while you’re drinking it your mouth is filled with the flavor of real peaches. Then when you swallow you get a hint of peach gummy candy. It’s be best of both worlds (even though the gummy candy flavor is only faint). The peach flavor is strong. I would prefer a little more tea in the ratio, but I’ll take what I can get. Now if you’ll excuse me I told Coop I would help him clean up some goat turds. How did I get suckered into this?

San Benedetto The Peach Ice Tea

San Benedetto The Peach Ice Tea

Dear Italy, I love what you've done with sodas. Your version is generally not as sweet, but still very flavorful. I'd like to think that you were trying to take the same approach with this tea, but you lost your way on the adventure. I think where you went wrong is that you concentrated on the peach instead of the tea. I can safely say that you got the peach down perfectly. You actually used peach juice instead of artificial garbage, and it shows. Well done. Unfortunately I think you used either all of your time or your capital working on that and forgot to give the tea the very special attention it deserved. You could have very easily brewed some fresh tea, that would have been great, but you went with a tea extract (poor choice). While this still tastes great, it's more like a peach drink than a tea drink. Sorry.
Sincerely,
The Thirsty Dudes
