Summer Sweet Tea (Lemon)
Last Updated: 7/31/2009 9:51 AM
From a flavor point of view, Mary Anna’s Summer Sweet Tea is a really well crafted product that tastes just like what you’d get if you made sweet tea at home. Made with only four ingredients (water, sugar, lemon juice, black tea), this product has a very wholesome flavor to it, with the tea, lemon, and sugar easily distinguishable from the mix. There’s a fair amount of black tea flavor to the drink, which tastes like a medium-bodied brew. While the drink has 160 calories and 38g of sugar per bottle, it feels surprisingly light in your mouth. It’s sweet, but not too sweet – and the splash of lemon gives it a very pleasant finish (plus, it lacks that acidic finish that we often find in mainstream bottled teas). All in all, we’re big fans of what’s inside this bottle. On the outside, they’ve gone with a 16 oz. bottle and a colorful stuck-on label. There’s something about the brand name “Mary Anna’s” (that’s the name of the founder) that doesn’t seem as “sticky” as something like Sweet Leaf or Honest Tea. In addition, we’d suggest promoting the lemon flavor a bit more by placing the text higher (the “a rich infusion of custom blended teas” could go – it doesn’t really add anything) and adding a lemon graphic somewhere. Overall, this is a great first effort in terms of what’s on the inside of the bottle, but we think that the outside needs a bit of improvement.
