Republic of Tea’s Pink Lemonade Green Tea, reviewed

Pink Lemonade Green Tea

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.
