Review: Peace Tea Green Tea


Packaged in an attractive sea foam green 23 oz can, Peace Tea Green Tea is a semi-sweet, authentic-tasting tea entry, in stark contrast to the rest of the lineup, which tends to bury the tea flavor in an abundance of sweetness.

This product from Monster Beverage features the traditional Peace Tea “look,” this time emphasizing Chinese tea origins, along with peace movement iconography, including signs that implore you to “Question Authority” and “Be Your Own Master.” Packaging notes this drink features “100% natural tea”, “no artificial flavors”, “no preservatives”, and “no artificial colors”. This apple juice-colored Green Tea is sweetened with sugar and sucralose.

I’ve historically been down on the Peace Tea lineup because I feel they are generally too sweet in nature, which overwhelms the actual tea flavor of the products. Green Tea is a refreshing break from that trend, as even though it’s still sweet (thanks to both sugar and honey inside), the green tea flavor is not lost in the mouthfeel.

While I’m not a huge green tea fan, this is probably one of my favorite Peace Tea flavors to date. It’s affordably refreshing! Curiously enough, this drink also contains ginseng, which isn’t really called out in the packaging.
