What a nice surprise to visit an Ingles grocery store over the weekend and find these ready-to-drink (or RTD) bottled teas from the Charleston Tea Plantation!
Because of my interest in U.S. tea history, I especially loved seeing "MADE WITH TEA GROWN IN THE U.S.A." on the label!
They have a nice selection of these teas, and I got the All Natural Peach Tea and …
The All Natural Lemon Tea.
I love that this tea is made with "South Carolina Grown Black Tea." This peach flavor is some of the best bottled peach tea I've ever had. I'm pretty open to peach-flavored anything, but this tea had the perfect marriage of black tea and peach flavor in a lightly sweet tea. I'm betting even the tea purists who rarely drink bottled teas will like this tea!
Similarly, the lemon tea was not too sweet and not too tart, and it didn't have that strong fake lemon flavor that I usually find in bottled lemon-flavored teas. In fact, the only reason I tried the lemon flavor this time was that I trust Bigelow and the Charleston Tea Plantation! Have any of you tried these teas? I'm definitely a fan, and now I'll be going back soon to try the other flavors of Charleston Tea Plantation bottled teas!
