sweet leaf sweet tea

sweet leaf sweet tea
I love real southern sweet tea so this looked exciting. Except that it wasn’t…it’s not even close to being sweet enough to be considered “sweet tea” and there’s way too much water. The tea that I could taste seemed good and fresh, but this is not sweet tea. Not by a mile. c+

trader joe milk

trader joe\'s milk
Normally I have trouble telling one brand of milk apart from the next, but this one really stood out. It’s got a slightly sweeter than usual flavor and tastes a bit creamier than other milk brands. I really liked it. My favorite brand of milk so far! a

snapple green tea

snapple green tea
This looks good and pure, but notice how light the color of the drink is. That’s because it’s really watered-down green tea. It’s not bad: it tastes like good quality green tea. But it’s so watered down that they might as well have called it green tea flavored water. c+

kombucha wonder drink

kombucha wonder drink

this neat looking sparkling himalayan tonic has asian pear and ginger blended with organic oolong tea. ah. sure looks good and refreshing doesn’t it? don’t believe it. it’s evil. i think the “wonder” stands for “i wonder who’s gonna drink this crap?” (shiver). F
