Review: Peace Tea Sno-Berry


Over the summer, Peace Tea released two new flavors, growing out this canned tea line from Monster Beverage. Today, we take a look at Peace Tea Sno-Berry, officially described as tasting like "white tea with blueberry."

This tea has a decidedly "winter" theme to the packaging. Peace Tea's official website sets the tone:

Are you ready for an enchanting lifestyle in Arctic conditions under the Northern Lights?  Sno-Berry brings you there, complete with calming campfires, abundant fishing, Iditarod’s and igloo-living. After all, the Inuits are “the people” of Alaska and will welcome you with open arms and teach you their native language, Inuktitut. What are you waiting for?

The images on the can reflect this themeing, reflecting a cool blue and white color scheme.

There's a fruity, tea scent coming off this beverage once you crack open the can. Sno-Berry is a light-colored drink, reflecting the white tea aspect, with just a hint of brown coloring. Packaging notes this drink features "100% natural tea", "no artificial flavors", "no preservatives", and "no artificial colors". Sno-Berry is sweetened with sugar and sucralose.

Like most Peace Tea products, this drink is very sweet, with an emphasis on the fruit flavoring over the actual tea taste. The blueberry influence is strong, leading the initial taste, but fading into an artificially-sweetened aftertaste that lurks and, frankly, brings the overall flavor experience down. I really wanted to love this flavor combination, but the aftertaste and overpowering blueberry flavor were frustrating.

Comments

  1. is there caffeine in sno-berry peace tea??? and if so how much???

    I was excited to try this because I do like most of their other teas, and hey, its berry! But drinking a bit of it, besides the overpowering sweetness, theres an aftertaste of shampoo in my mouth. Not impressed that I spent money on something that tastes like shampoo. My boyfriend also thought this tasted like shampoo.

  3. I recently tried the sno-berry and thought it was delicious. I would definitely buy it again. The blueberry taste actually wasn't too overpowering and the aftertaste went away fairly quick. Love this product.

  4. I have to echo the other comment saying there was an aftertaste of shampoo. After my first sip, I thought the aftertaste was that of a cleaning product. Not bad tasting so long as you chug the whole thing without stopping, but blech, that shampoo/cleaning product aftertaste really ruins it terribly.

  5. I was excited by this tea! Never had Peace Tea before, and the art is amazing. Although pretty sweet, it definitely had an interesting blueberry taste. I didn't detect any "shampooness" of it.

    I am sad about it having sucralose though, an artificial sweetener for those who don't know. The search for quirky teas with no artificial sweeteners continues!

  6. This is my new favorite peace tea, I lov e that it's a white tea with blueberry flavoring and a splash of regular tea along with makes it delicious. I don't understand why people are saying that the blueberry taste is overwhelming and the aftertaste is great, I've personally never tasted shampoo, but I don't think that it tastes bad at all 10/10 if you're not drinking sno berry tea you are missing out

  7. Who drinks shampoo? That's so weird, could you please tell me what head&shoulders tastes like those Troy Polomalu ads make me curious. Honestly this tea has a little aftertaste bc they also added regular tea with it to give it that extra kick and I think they hit a home run with this product

  8. Those whom "assume" the flavor is of a shampoo are hideous morons! Who in the f*** drinks shampoo unless they're on some serious crack? Epic fail!

    Not sure where people are getting a shampoo taste but one must ask, "How do you know what shampoo tastes like?" I LOVE this tea I buy it all the time and its BY FAR my favorite drink by Peace Tea! Keep up the good work you rock Peace Tea!!

Trackbacks

  1. […] Hey, it's a winter-themed white tea, with some blueberry thrown in! Very sweet, distracting aftertaste, and buried tea flavor.  […]

  2. […] recently reviewed a new flavor in Monster Beverage's ready-to-drink tea lineup, Peace Tea Sno-Berry. Well, it turns out that in order to make room for this new SKU, they gave the ax to Peace Tea […]
