Taster’s Review:

I was really excited when Southern Boy Teas/52Teas announced this new flavor (as part of their kickstarter incentive program) because although I very rarely drink soda, one soda type drink that I do like to indulge in now and again are Cherry Limeade drinks (like you might get at Sonic), but the one thing I don’t like about those soft drinks is how sugary they are.  This Cherry Limeade Flavored Iced Tea from Southern Boy Teas seems to be a perfect solution to that – I get the flavor of the Cherry Limeade but I can control how much sweetener goes into the pitcher.  I don’t like a sweet iced tea … or any drink that’s too sweet for that matter.

And this is pretty good.  I’m a little disappointed, because the cherry and lime flavors are not quite as sharp as I’d like them to be.  52Teas usually offers masterful “soda” type drinks that taste effervescent, and I guess I was kind of hoping for some of that effervescence here.  But while I do taste cherry and lime, neither of these flavors are really as strong as I’d like them to be, and I don’t taste much of a soda-ish type quality here either.

It’s still really good though.  The cherry and lime flavors are there.  This tastes more like … a limeade that’s been flavored with some cherry juice … rather than a Cherry Limeade drink that I might order from that drive-in soda shop.   The cherry is sweet, the lime adds a bright tartness to the cup, and I like that I can taste the black tea flavor too.  It’s a very refreshing glass of iced tea.  Not my favorite from SBT, but it’s still tasty.
