I really happen to enjoy tea- both warm and iced. Nothing like a cup of warm tea on a cold, wintry day or some iced tea to go with a meal. I got a coupon to try one of the Tazo Zero Calorie Naturally Sweetened Iced Teas, and the only one available at my grocery store was the Refresh flavor, so I decided to give that one a try.
This tea has no caffeine, and according to the bottle is an “herbal infusion with peppermint and spearmint”. I love when drinks have natural sweeteners AND aren’t loaded with refined, white sugar, so I was happy to give this a try.
Unfortunately, I really did not enjoy it. The bottle claims to be “naturally sweetened” but I did not taste even a hint of sweetness. It reminded me of a watered down black tea with a minty aftertaste. The smell was very minty and rather strong, so I was sort of expecting a stronger mint flavor, but it really wasn’t as strong as I had thought it would be. I just really did not enjoy it.
Overall, this gets 1 star from me. While I love that it’s sweetened naturally, and I guess I can see why perhaps it’s called “refresh”, like a mint can refresh someone after eating a meal, it’s just not my cup of tea (no pun intended ;P ). Perhaps the other flavors of Passion or Zen might be tastier.

ugh, i tried that one too and thought it was awful. i returned it for a refund
I have to say, most of the naturally sweetened teas I’ve tried are never sweet enough for me and taste watered down. Maybe it’s cause I’m from the south and we like really sweet tea here!!
