Review: Enlighten Mint (2010)

Posted: Apr 05, 2010 at 8:52 AM (Last Updated: Apr 06, 2010 at 6:00 PM)
With their Lemon Elation variety, which won BevNET’s Best of 2009 Awards for Best New Tea and Best Packaging Design, Guayaki has a tough act to follow. Fortunately, what they'’ve created with their Enlighten Mint flavor is spot on, blending just the right amounts of mate, peppermint, sugar, and honey. It’s an extremely easy product to drink, with a smooth flavor that’s clean from start to finish. And of course, this being mate, it has 150 mg of natural caffeine per can but is still low in calories (112 per can). Packaging is a nice continuation of what they developed for their Lemon Elation product, with small visual differentiators (a green accent color and a female face) made to their vibrant looking can design. It somehow manages to feel hip and authentic, giving it a leg up on Guayaki’s bottled products. USDA Organic and Fair Trade certifications are prominently displayed, which certainly bolsters this product'’s premium vibe. Overall, a really well executed product from Guayaki.
