Rob’s Really good Half & Half is a well-executed mixture of the classic mixture of black tea, sugar, and lemonade. In this case, they’ve kept the flavors – and sweetness level – to reasonable levels, resulting in a product that has 60 calories per 8 oz. serving. Thanks to the use of sugar (as opposed to the more viscous HFCS), the product feels light in the mouth, finishing with just the right amount of lemon flavor. On the outside, the 14 oz. bottle has a hip, earthy vibe that works well with an organic certified beverage like this. We also like the choice of a slender bottle, which has a naturally “lighter” vibe than the stock 16 oz. bottle that’s used by most tea companies. However, we don’t feel as though the underlying message and purpose of this brand offers anything overly new or unique as there are certainly many choices for organic, sweetened RTD teas on the market. Still, Rob’s Really Good is, as the name states, really good, and we like the homemade, inviting vibe of the brand. Definitely worth a try.
