Moonshine Sweet Tea Sweet Peach

Moonshine Sweet Tea Sweet Peach

I always wonder why there are drink companies who play off of the while moonshine imagery. There are a few soda companies that have done it and now we have a tea company that has named itself after strong bootleg booze. Are they aiming to tap into a market of children and teenagers who want to pretend they are drinking booze (even though it's the furthest thing from it)? I mean when I was a dumb kid I used to drink the sparkling Mystic drinks when they were in the slim bottles and pretend they were wine coolers. Well, I guess I just proved to myself that that market exists, even though I was making fun of it. I still don't know if that's their intended reason for the name, but I'll go with it.

In other news this tastes like sweet tea with some peaches in it. Big shock there. The sweet tea overpowers the additional flavoring, just like a good sweet tea should. Unfortunately there is also a little bit of plastic taste in here too. I don't know where that came from, but it's unfortunate. Does the south love plastic and I just don't know?

Runa Clean Energy Sweet Peach

Runa Clean Energy Sweet Peach

There is joy and there is sadness in the world of Big Lots. We tend to find a decent amount of tasty and interesting beverages there. If we find something we enjoy and we are lucky then it’s simply there because a company ordered too much, or there has been a change in the label and the company is trying to blow out their old stock. Unfortunately there are other times when a product is being discontinued or a company has gone out of business. This seems to be the case more often than not when I find something I like there, so I buy up what I can and enjoy the limited time I have with it.

Luckily in the case of Runa, their teas presence at the discount store is due to nothing more than a chance of label. I will still be able to find these delicious teas in the future, but you can bet your bottom that at fifty cents per bottle I will be buying up the stores stock.

It’s been awhile since I’ve drank an iced tea that has impressed me, so I was caught completely off guard with this. It’s no secret that peach flavored beverages tend to be a little much, and end up tasting candied. This tea is flavored with “organic peach flavor” and that apparently equates to a taste that is like a peach that is right on the cusp of being perfectly ripe. It has a sweetness to it, but also a vague bitterness that comes with unripe fruit. It’s a refreshing change of pace for this particular flavor. It also helps that they didn’t go overboard with the sweetener and there are only 16g of sugar in the entire bottle.

This drink is very smooth and you get a little kick from the caffeine that is found in the guayusa. Flavor and energy; this tea truly has it all.
