Peace Tea

Yesterday I was at Krogers getting some groceries and stocking up on my diet soda.  As I was walking down the soft drinks aisle, something caught my eye.  I saw a group of large cans with a peace sign on the front.  I just wrote a blog article last week about the peace sign, so I went over to investigate these cans. The cans said Peace Tea  and they were made by the Peace Tea Beverage Co. in Carona, California.
There were several flavors but I decided on the green tea.  I noticed that the price was $0.99 per can.  OUCH...that is kind of pricey for a can of green tea.  I took a closer look and noticed that this super-sized can contained 23 fluid ounces of tea.  That is equal to three 8-ounce glasses. 
On the back of the can were pictures of four signs with the following messages;
  • 100% natural tea
  • No artifical flavors
  • No preservatives
  • No artificial colors
The drink was sweetened with natural sugar and contained 50 calories.  I decided to give it a try.  I bought one can, brought it home and put it in the refrigerator.  I got it out today and took a sip.  It tastes good.  It is sweet but not too sweet.  This is a healthy alternative to my drink of choice....Diet Dr Pepper. 
I am not sure if this company is marketing to baby boomers (old hippies) or to a new generation of peace activists.  I have to say that I am pleased with the packaging, price and taste of this product.  I am sold on Peace Iced Tea!

The blossoms give the tea a very refreshing taste, and fragrant aroma.
This is because of the good quantity of antioxidants, in addition to
a substance known as TF-2, which is a natural compound shown
to block inflammation, viruses and cancer itself.
Yet another benefit of green tea is the enzyme Amylase which leads to the breakdown of carbohydrates.
