The Peace Tea lineup from Monster Beverage offers two different flavors of sweet tea. We’ve previously looked at Peace Tea Sweet Lemon Tea, but this time we head South to explore Peace Tea Texas Style Sweet Tea. What does “Texas style” actually taste like?
The reference to the 28th State seems to be reflected mostly in the package artwork, which like all Peace Tea entires, portrays an element of the peace movement that ties into the specific flavor. Though, in this case, it seems to reflect cowboy hats, the Texas flag, and livestock more than anything. The label also notes that inside you’ll find “100% natural tea”, “no artificial flavors”, “no preservatives”, and “no artificial colors”. However, that said, it should be noted that this can of Peace Tea is sweetened with both sugar and sucralose. (Apparently, sucralose is considered non-artificial in this context.)
Like most Peace Tea entries, this drink is light brown, but features a strong black tea smell. It’s quite sweet in flavor, but that’s part of the flavor name, right? I actually liked the sweet+black tea combo featured in this entry. There still seemed to be a bit of artificial sweetness present thanks to the sucralose, but overall, this is a solid installment from Peace… if you don’t mind a slightly plastic-infused aftertaste.
Peace Tea Texas Style Sweet Tea
Brewed natural black tea (pure filtered water, black tea), sugar, citric acid, natural flavor, sucralose
A 23 oz can contains 143.8 calories, 0 mg sodium, and 34.5 g carbs (34.5 g sugars).
This drink lives up to its name regarding sweetness, but has nothing to do with the Republic of Texas other than goofy artwork.
