As we’ve noted in previous reviews, this brand out of New Jersey features great thematic packaging in 16 oz. glass bottles, harkening back to nostalgia on the beach. Plus, this stuff’s got cane sugar!
Pop the cap and you are greeted with a strong black tea scent, with just a hint of fruitiness. The tea itself is darker in color, with a murky brown shade typically associated with bottled teas. There is some sediment floating around, which is why the label notes to “shake before opening.”
Initial sip is quite sweet, with a hint of the peach flavor. The flavor builds and combines with the black tea flavor, flowing into the aftertaste. The drink itself is both packed with flavor and feels somewhat watery at the same time. Still, there’s a robustness and authenticity to the blend (unlike, say, recent politically-oriented teas that have appeared in the marketplace). Just take a look at the ingredients!
That said, I’m not a huge fan of peach-flavored teas (though I really love MaryAnna’s take on the raspberry flavor), so I can’t say this is my favorite taste. That said, it’s a quality tea blend that feels “premium” in many respects and fits along nicely with the rest of the product line. Good stuff!
