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.
Occasionally I run into a nice, light iced tea with a calming flavor and surprisingly little briskness allowing me simply to relax with a nice breeze on a hot Summer day. This fantastically light peach flavored white iced tea from Honest Tea hits that spot just about to a tee, pun intended.
As it happens, most iced teas have a subdued flavor. Something about the chilling process seems to reduce the pucker and boldness of almost all teas when they’re iced. Not so with this refreshingly bold iced Lemongrass Green tea from ITO EN.
