Premium Iced Tea .Tejava

January 28, 2007 at 5:53 pm | Posted in Assam, Black Tea, RTD Bottled Tea, Tea Reviews | 3 Comments

Found at many supermarkets in California/ Trader Joes in NY, Chicago
good price: ~1.5$/L (compared to $1.8 /0.5L as other RTD teas are priced.)

This is a black tea grown in Java, brewed in California (as per their website).

its unsweetened ๐Ÿ˜€ yay!, a US made tea that keeps it real!

and look no bullsh*t on the label (sofar) … no ‘organic’ , no ‘all natural’ ,ย  no ‘10000mg flavonoids’ ๐Ÿ˜€ yay #2 !

it does say that there are no preservatives or anything artificial, so that’s good ๐Ÿ™‚

Taste: its TEA ๐Ÿ™‚ with: moderate astringency first, upon swallow flavor appears as a black tea sort of an assam-ish? flavor with a little specific taste but i dont know of what (fruity?). lingering astringency aftertaste in the back of the throat with a bit of a dryness sensation (as is most black tea astringency.)

Overall: good product, i’d buy it again (i haven’t found another black tea as this one yet).

still going 2009 ๐Ÿ™‚ Tejava rules ๐Ÿ˜€

update 3/2010: Noticed at local Trader Joes Tejava pack of .5L bottles (looked like glass bottles too)

  1. It tastes as if it has aged for a day. Let a Lipton’s type black tea sit for a day in a warm temperature and it will acquire this taste. Strange but true.

  2. mmm… no?
    .
    these do sit for days non-refrigerated until the cap is opened,
    .
    after its opened it indeed doesn’t last too long, unless refrigerated – it could go for about 1 week(depending on temperature and contaminating bacteria)-this applies to most beverages without much preservatives…
    .
    lipton doesn’t taste as good as this tea in any way. lipton barely resembles real tea taste.

  3. Oh yes very good. One of the few bottled iced teas worth drinking. I usually buy it at Trader Joes in Chicagoland.
