What our Citizens are saying about this great gift of the leaf...
Different and interesting
First off, I am an avid wine drinker. Love all types, especially cabernet. I did not expect this to taste exactly like cabernet, because this is made from the skins of the grapes after pressing. Having said that, does it taste like a cab? Sure, but not as a wine. It is lighter than a cab wine, and it should be. If I brewed this up and it tasted just like a cabernet, I would wonder why I am drinking this over ice! This is a great ice tea for the summer, when it might be a tad too hot and humid to enjoy opening a dark red wine, but this is a great and ingenious substitute for any meat dish, hamburger or summer bbq fun. I love this. The flavors are close enough to wine for fun, light enough for me to know I am getting some hydration. Keep up the innovation! To the Republic!
did not enjoy taste at all it tasted flat we threw it out!
Surprised by the negative reviews!
I came online to order more of this tea and I was so surprised to see the negative reviews! I love tea and I love wine. This is a rich tea that captures the richness of Cabernet Sauvignon....it is not wine, it is tea. I think it is a great, flavorful tea and I actually prefer it hot more than cold. If you are looking for a rich, flavorful tea, I recommend this one, if you are looking for a glass of wine, well......get a glass of wine.
The flavor is diluted and not Cabernet flavor at all.
The chardonay is the best. I love wine and purchased all 3 Sonoma teas.
Very disappointed in this one
I thought for sue I would like this based on the fact that I really enjoy both the Chardonnay and Rose iced tea. This almost has a stale fruit taste with no hint of anything like wine. Not what I was expecting. This is the first tea I have purchased from Republic of tea that I do not like.
