Taster’s Review:

This is a tea that I’ve previously reviewed, because this is one of the “original” Southern Boy Teas that were made available to the public a couple of years ago.  (I think that Southern Boy Teas started out as a company to provide restaurants with iced tea options for their customers.)

But I’m happy to see this tea in these 12 iced teas of Christmas, because it’s one of my favorites.  It is so delicious.  It is a sweeter tasting tea – so if you’re one that tends to prefer your teas on the plain side, this is definitely not the iced tea to put in your fridge!  But, for the rest of us that love a flavored iced tea – this is one of the best that SBT has to offer!

I’ve been really happy with this countdown thus far.  If for no other reason, it’s encouraging me to keep iced tea in the fridge all the time, and that isn’t something I used to do year ’round.  I’d usually cut off the iced tea brewing around the end of September, when the weather starts to turn cooler.

So yeah … it’s a little weird for me to be drinking iced tea at Christmastime.  This is new to me.  I’ve always been more of the “tea is a hot beverage” sort of girl, but I like having that pitcher of cold refreshment in the chill box waiting for me when I want something to drink with my meals.  I still drink cold drinks in the winter, just not as often.  So, why shouldn’t those cold drinks be iced tea?

Usually, my only cold drink during the winter is water, because I don’t drink soda or juice very often.  Even less than not very often.  Like it’s a rare occurrence for me to drink a soda or juice.   So, I like having the iced tea readily available to enjoy when I want a cold drink.

And this Cotton Candy iced tea is one of the tastiest teas from Southern Boy Teas!

Our mutual love for tea and writing about it inspired us to start this blog so that we could better share this love with others.

One thing I (Anne) learned very early on in my career as a tea artist is that everyone has different preferences, and every single tea tastes differently on every single palate.  So just because one of us doesn’t happen to like a tea, doesn’t mean that YOU (the reader) will not.

We try to be as impartial as we can.  We do have our favorites.  We are human.  But we do our very best to be as fair and as honest about a tea as we can be.

You might not agree with my assessment – or with Jennifer’s assessment – of a tea.  But that’s OK… if we all liked the same exact tea – we’d only need ONE kind of tea and … wow… that sounds really boring, indeed!

What a beautiful world it is that we have so many teas to suit so many tea enthusiasts!
