After not being completely disappointed with my sampling of Mojitea, I decided to give another Ready-to-Drink tea beverage from Argo Tea a try. This time, though, I made sure that there was actual Camellia Sinensis in the blend!
And I have to say that I like this quite a bit better than the aforementioned Mojitea. There is a lot of ginger in this one though, so if you’re not keen on ginger, this is not the tea for you.
I can also taste the lemon in this, it isn’t an abundant flavor, but, it adds a nice touch of acidic taste to offset the peppery taste of the ginger. The green tea seems a little lost in the blend, but, I can taste it back there … somewhere! It would be nice to have a little more green tea flavor, but on the plus side, I like that this isn’t overwhelmingly sweet. In fact, I find that the sweetness is balanced nicely with the spicy note from the ginger and the bit of lemon flavor.
There is also just a hint of vanilla to this, and I notice that particularly in the aftertaste which is a little sweet and creamy tasting.
Quite nice for a RTD. I would definitely be happy to drink this one again.

SororiTEA Sisters was one of the first Tea Review Blogs to review a bottled tea from Marley Beverage Company and we are proud to say that we have a 2nd review to share! This time around we have All Natural Relaxation Marley’s Mellow Mood Black Tea – Peach Raspberry Passion Fruit. It says it reduces stress and relieves tension. It’s decaf, too!

As far as a bottled iced tea this is pretty tasty! As far as a decaf-sweetened-bottled-iced-tea this is pretty awesome, I must say! Yes, it’s sweet and it’s fruity but here is a lengthier review of this groovy product…
My first sip was an eye-opening one! It was much flavorful than I expected! A nice-sweet-fruity bottled iced tea is certainly what we have here! The black tea taste isn’t in the forefront – it seems to be hiding in the background – but with all of the other flavors going on here there is a lot of others to keep me interested and busy! I could taste the Passion Fruit first and then the Raspberry and the peach isn’t as strong as I thought it would be but that is ok! It doesn’t leave a funky aftertaste which I appreciate!
This is another pleasant surprise from Marley Beverage Company.
Now…I’ll leave you with another of my favorite Bob Marley songs…

It’s rare that I review a Bottled Tea but this one was just too interesting to pass up!
I want to start of by saying…I’m a fan of his music and his family’s charity work. I have been to the Bob Marley Cafe in Orlando. I have over 14 of his CDs. Yeah…I guess you could say I’m a Bob Marley fan.
My parents recently surprised me with a groovy lil glass bottle of Bob Marley Iced Tea waiting.
I’m not going to lie…I was a little skeptical. BUT…this iced tea was REALLY GOOD. I mean REALLY GOOD. Sure, it was sweet from the pure cane sugar and honey but it was mellow or what I like to call a “more pale type of sweet”. It wasn’t overly sweet nor was it artificial tasting like many bottled iced teas can be. I might say this is my new favorite bottled sweetened iced tea! I am looking forward to trying the other 3.
This was a mellower juicy green tea that was sugary-sweet and didn’t leave a weird aftertaste, thankfully. I ended up REALLY liking this and was very surprised!
Because this is a MELLOW MOOD tea – I will say that it lives up to its name. It’s not often anything makes me drowsy but this actually did. I will say that on the back of the bottle it does say not to exceed more than 2 bottles in one day and to space them out so they aren’t back-to-back.
I’ll leave you this morning with ONE LOVE by Bob Marley…
