If you like tea that comes in a can and you like energy drinks, you'll probably like Go Fast's Tea Energy with Stevia. The base flavor of the drink is very much like an RTD tea, with black and green tea solids providing the tea flavor. The obvious difference is the addition of carbonation, which gives the product some pop in your mouth. The product is sweetened with stevia (the can calls attention to that), but it also has sugar and honey, which is why the product has 50 calories and 12g of sugar per serving (2 servings per can). This blend works well, with the product having a natural level of sweetness and the stevia largely unnoticeable. Functionally, the product has some good energy kick to it, with 162mg of caffeine per can, B vitamins, D-Ribose, herbal ingredients, and electrolytes. On the outside, the product looks and feels like an energy drink, with the familiar Go Fast logo, a bulleted list of ingredients, and the "stronger for longer" tagline. If anything, we'd like to see them clean up the aesthetics of the can a little bit -- it feels really busy. Plus, the actual flavor name "Tea" could be improved. Overall, it's a nice tasting and performing entry, with the visual aspect of the can needing a little bit of work.
