Sotea Carbonated Tea Peach Passion

Sotea Carbonated Tea Peach Passion

Strange things are afoot at the Circle K, and by Circle K I mean this bottle of carbonated tea. I’ve had a handful of tea sodas in my days on this planet and to be honest I don’t know if any of the flavored ones have really impressed me. Give me a straight up sparkling black, green, white, or yerba mate tea and I’ll be all over it, but something gets lost in the translation when you mix carbon dioxide, tea and fruit flavors. Something especially seems wrong when a zero calorie sweetener is brought into the mix. Look, I’ve made my peace with stevia. I don’t love it, but I know it has its place and I’ve even been known to enjoy it in some drinks. In this bottle of Sotea it’s blended with real sugar, so it should be actually decent, but it mixes with the peach flavor in a way that just makes the whole thing taste artificial. The ingredients say nothing about the peach juice, but “natural flavors” is listed, so I’m assuming it has something to do with an actual peach, but it just doesn’t taste authentic. I was excited to try this line when I came across it, but it really is just not for me and my taste buds.
