And welcome back to our occasional as well as loyal visitors!
Having said all of that – we have another Marley’s Mellow Mood product review today! This time around we are featuring their Half Lemonade – Half Tea.
It certainly looks like iced tea in the bottle which carries the very recognizable Marley label! (Yes, I collect the bottles! I save at least one of each product!)
Once I cracked the cap there was a mellow yet sweet lemony and iced tea aroma coming from the bottle. It’s very pleasing!
I would say there is more lemonade than iced tea taste – at first taste – but the flavor is perfect! The Lemonade is a sweeter lemonade not a puckery one. The lemonade flavor itself reminds me of that fresh squeezed lemonade you get at those street fair stands – the ones where they squeeze it upon ordering and add real sugar to it right in front of you and then drop in lemon chunks to top it off! Yeah! That kind of Lemonade! The tea IS present but underneath. I can notice the tea taste linger a bit more at the end of the sip and on to the aftertaste.
Years ago my Grandfather used to make sun tea. I’m not sure if everyone who makes sun tea makes it the way he did but I will tell you it was THAT memorable. And this reminds me of it a little. He used to put several plain black tea bags in a glass see-thru pitcher or jug with water and let it sit in the Florida Sun all day…easy as that! Sometimes he would add fresh, whole lemons halved or sliced, even! Once the tea water was to the shade of dark he was looking for he would then bring it inside and add ice. Sometimes he would squeeze more lemon juice in there. And, of course, sometimes he would make it into his afternoon tonic. Regardless – this flavor remind me of him.
Even tho this is sweet – it’s fairly smooth, too! I think that helps with the aftertaste. Many of you know I am pretty particular about aftertastes! This is very nice! It’s gently lingers but it’s not too overpowering and it doesn’t have a funky artificial aftertaste to it…it’s a simple lemon and tea hint.
I really think the market for this product is limitless! You have those interested in TEA, those into Lemonade, and those who are looking for a combo of the two. In addition, most people who are fans of Bob Marley – or any of the Marleys and/or the charities they support are apt to try this product! PLUS…you have the natural and health aspects of the product! AND…the Marley Beverage Company is doing a lot to promote these great products! With their internet presence, social media, displays are various health food stores and chain stores, as well as being involved with a few Summer Festivals – they also support various charities – which I have mentioned in my previous reviews. More recently I read that the Marley’s donated $100,000 to Charity Water! That’s wonderful! I’m so happy Marley Beverages is coming out with more Tea Products! And we are very excited to try them and review them!
This is another winner from Marley Beverages! The flavor is natural, REAL, flavorful, and darn right tasty! On a personal level it takes me back to my childhood and memories of my Grandfather who I miss very much. It also is a wonderful tribute to Bob Marley and he would be proud to have his face on this product! Another GREAT JOB, Marley’s! From your friends at Sororitea Sisters!

It’s rare that I review a Bottled Tea but this one was just too interesting to pass up!
I want to start of by saying…I’m a fan of his music and his family’s charity work. I have been to the Bob Marley Cafe in Orlando. I have over 14 of his CDs. Yeah…I guess you could say I’m a Bob Marley fan.
My parents recently surprised me with a groovy lil glass bottle of Bob Marley Iced Tea waiting.
I’m not going to lie…I was a little skeptical. BUT…this iced tea was REALLY GOOD. I mean REALLY GOOD. Sure, it was sweet from the pure cane sugar and honey but it was mellow or what I like to call a “more pale type of sweet”. It wasn’t overly sweet nor was it artificial tasting like many bottled iced teas can be. I might say this is my new favorite bottled sweetened iced tea! I am looking forward to trying the other 3.
This was a mellower juicy green tea that was sugary-sweet and didn’t leave a weird aftertaste, thankfully. I ended up REALLY liking this and was very surprised!
Because this is a MELLOW MOOD tea – I will say that it lives up to its name. It’s not often anything makes me drowsy but this actually did. I will say that on the back of the bottle it does say not to exceed more than 2 bottles in one day and to space them out so they aren’t back-to-back.
I’ll leave you this morning with ONE LOVE by Bob Marley…
