If I had one drug of choice it would be Diet Coke. To me there is nothing quite like the carbonation and the artificial sweetness that doesn't make me go, "yuck." Is it healthy for me? Probably not, but we all have our vices. But in truth, my vice probably is really carbonation.
Because I can go weeks without Diet Coke. But I'll need a seltzer instead.
I just love fizzy things.
So when I see a new bubbly drink, I have to have it.
And this one hands down has the prettiest packaging in the land. I did walk past it a couple times because with black packaging it doesn't draw your eye in the same way a whole shelf of brightly colored drink do.
Truth be told, I probably would have missed it on shelf had I not had someone suggest I try it.
Well aside from pretty packaging, this product is just ok. If you've ever had Celestial Seasonings Country Peach Passion, then this is pretty close.
With the addition of 15 calories.
The key difference here is that this isn't peach-flavored tea. This has peach juice in it. Just not much of it.
A peach tea will yield more peach flavor here. And if you are somehow hoping or Snapple levels of sweetness, you'll be disappointed.
Each can is a reasonable amount of calories even though they are small. But it is very much black tea with a hint of peach.
And then there is the price. It's $3.99 for four cans. A bit steep (pun intended) in my mind for a can of just over 8 ounces.
Would I buy this again? While this was pleasant enough and didn't have many bad qualities, it didn't wow me. So I won't buy Trader Joe's Sparkling Black Tea with Peach Juice again.
