We’d like to give this tea bonus points for its fun and quirky name. If you visit Snapple’s website, you’ll find that most of their tea flavors (and juices) have pretty generic names, like raspberry tea or fruit punch. However, the notoriously quirky, non-stuffy brand that Snapple consumers love is backed up by their playful puns, as seen in drink names like Go Bananas and Trop-a-Rocka Tea.
We know that Snapple makes both juices and teas, and the two are differentiated by the inclusion of tea (we know, duh). The distinction likely influences drinking habits: when you want something refreshing, you reach for lighter beverages like iced teas, and when you crave a fruity, sweet treat, you reach for fruit juice. The Takes 2 to Mango Tea confused our tea cravings, as it was pretty darn sweet for an iced tea. With 38 grams of sugar per 16-ounce bottle, it has more sugar than some of their other teas, but not as much as Peach Tea or Sweet Honey Tea, each of which contains 40 grams of sugar per bottle.
Besides its unexpected sweetness, the Takes 2 to Mango Tea had a pleasant taste that made us feel like we were in the summer sun on a tropical beach. The mango flavor was distinct, and it wasn’t an artificial taste at all. It’s one of the drinks from Snapple that validates its “all natural” claim for us.
