Iced Tea

Iced tea was popularized and believed to be created at the 1904 World’s Fair in St. Louis by Richard Blechynden. In the United States, iced tea is very popular as an alternative to carbonated soft drinks, especially in the hotter Southern states: it is ubiquitous in restaurants, convenience stores, vending machines, and groceries. It may be freshly made on premises, or available in bottles and cans, and at many self-serve soda fountains. Restaurants sometimes give the customer the choice of sweetened or unsweetened tea.

Teaviews Member: Vanessa Vanessa's review:
"delicious and entirely addicting. The jasmine and ginger take a back seat to the tropical fruit flavors, but they do keep the overall fruitiness and sweetness in check."

Teaviews Member: Melanie Melanie's review:
"This is an amazing tea, with many layers of flavor. There isn't one flavor that dominates. Rather, they ebb and flow, mixing in the mouth and enhancing each other."

Teaviews Member: Vanessa Vanessa's review:
"There is no mistaking the lemon in this tea; the lemon is evident in the aroma of the dry leaves, but even more so in the flavor. It seems as if a couple of lemon wedges should be floating in my glass. "

Teaviews Member: Melanie Melanie's review:
"The tea is dark reddish color and has a wonderful berry smell as it's steeping. Over ice, the berry is the perfect background to the black tea."

ESP Emporium Watermelon Fruit Tea

7.8/10  —  1 review
Teaviews Member: Laura Laura's review:
" The sweetness is a bit less intense in the cold beverage. Again, it still tastes a bit more like honeydew melon than watermelon to me, but I cannot disagree with ESP Emporium's statement that a watermelon note does unfold---primarily in the aftertaste."

Tea Forte Iced White Ginger Pear

7.6/10  —  2 reviews
Teaviews Member: Katie Katie's review:
"The cheap-o in me was pretty skeptical that a tea on this end of the price scale would end up in my "too buy" list, but I changed my mind after the first few sips."

      7.2/10
Teaviews Member: Jamie Jamie's review:
"The ginger fulls up the underside - gently spicy at first and then mellowing to a lingering sweetness that stays with you awhile. The pear is perhaps most notable in a subtly sweet sense and is not overwhelming."

Rishi Tea 100% Premium Tealeaf Powder Sample Set

7.5/10  —  2 reviews
Teaviews Member: Christine Christine's review:
"The genmaicha was excellent, but the other two were so-so at best. I think it really depends on personal taste and whether or not you actually like any of these flavors iced."

      7/10
Teaviews Member: Katie Katie's review:
"The overall flavours of the assorted teas are what I would consider good mid-range representatives of sencha, oolong, and genmai. They aren't excellent, but they're good enough that the convenience and extra health benefits makes them a good staple to have around."

Teaviews Member: Geoff Geoff's review:
"While not enough to convert me completely from my iced tisanes, MaryAnna's tea put forth a worthwhile case. It's a far cry better than the faux tea juices that line the wrack in the specialty drink sections."

      7.5/10
Teaviews Member: Dan Dan's review:
"The flavors are nice and well balanced, but comparing this tea to some of the other POMx teas, this blend is a bit more astringent. The boldness of this tea, and the mouth puckering tannic feel may be more well suited than the "light" offerings by POM Wonderful."
