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.
