Republic of Tea’s Pink Lemonade Green Tea, reviewed
Republic of Tea’s Pink Lemonade Green Tea is one of the tea company’s “Sip for the Cure” teas, meaning that $1 from the sale of each tin goes to support Susan G. Komen for the Cure. I was a bit skeptical that the “pink” part of this tea was little more than the color of the packaging and a nod to the pink breast cancer awareness ribbon, so I was pleasantly surprised when I took a whiff of a freshly brewed cuppa: it smelled like tea and lemonade! The tea is very nice, with a light and refreshing overall flavor. It has a good green tea base that is just about equally matched with a lemony flavor. Notes of grapefruit (possibly the “pink”) and a little bit of grassiness round out the tea. It is especially good iced, but tastes summery even when hot. This is a great tea if you enjoy tea lemonades (a.k.a. Arnold Palmers), even if you don’t particularly care for green tea in general, since it is very close to tasting like a real tea-lemonade, as opposed to just a lemonade flavored tea.
