Bio Eistee Vivitz Classic Zitrone

A surprisingly good, organic, vegan ice tea from Switzerland. It is a black tea with some agave-juice, without refined sugar and low on calories, according to its label. (It is from a certified organic Swiss production, with Switzerland having some of the most stringent organic (“bio”) certifications around. But the agave-juice being imported, this is certified by other ‘foreign’ organic certifications.)

Despite its lack of sugar, it is really sweet. The black tea gives it its full taste and the agave-juice, which seems to work as an excellent natural sweetener, is barely noticeable at first.

It tastes real sweet at the front of the tongue, but has the usual bitterness at the back and upon swallowing, which is common with pure black teas.

Again, this tea needs to be drunk ice-cold. As it warms up to room temperature, it can start to taste somewhat stale.

It is from a local Swiss production, meaning it is mostly found in small Swiss delis and organic groceries.
