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.
