Earlier this summer I got the chance to try the three new Wize Monkey “iced tea” RTDs that they launched this year – and y’all know that I love Wize Monkey so I was chomping at the bit to see what they would be like!
Spoiler – they’re all good!
This is basically exactly what I wanted from a pure coffee leaf RTD – it’s super refreshing and natural with that really distinct coffee leaf flavour that’s sort of hard to describe; like a mix of the best parts of green tea, slightly roasted yerba mate or guayusa, and a nutty bready kind of note. It’s definitely not a sweet/sugary drink, which leans in hard to that natural feeling and makes it something you can easily drink for enjoyment or hydration on a hot summer day and not feel gross about after you’ve finished the can.
While it’s not my favourite of the three new RTDs they released, it’s an amazing representation of what coffee leaf can be and – having met Max & Arnaud, the two brains behind this awesome company, I’m honestly just so happy for both of them! This was super good!
