Snapple. A large and popular brand of ready to drink beverages. Not usually the focus of the avid tea drinker. The past few years, Snapple has been pumping out the teas en-masse. They have upped their tea quality a bit, and this brew makes it noticeable.
I have pushed back today's scheduled post on the "Tasting Notes" application for the iPhone and iPod Touch in order to bring you updates on a number of topics I've noted on earlier occasions.
