CELSIUS Raspberry Acai Green Tea
I see this as more of a niche product, catering to those who want a healthy, stimulating drink that has the flavor profile of a tea with fruit in it
CELSIUS continues to blur the lines between healthy drinks and energy drinks, and Raspberry Acai Green Tea is no exception. Unfortunately in this case, flavor lost out in favor of being health conscious. That may be a tad dramatic, and it should be noted that I am not an avid tea drinker. I see this as more of a niche product, catering to those who want a healthy, stimulating drink that has the flavor profile of a tea with fruit in it. Perhaps that's a small niche, however, I'm sure there are some out there that are looking for just that.
Raspberry Acai Green Tea toes the line between empty taste like a tea or seltzer and being sweet in an artificial way. Initially it tastes watery in a similar manner to tea; however, the sweetness and tartness quickly follow. I'm unsure if that's from the raspberry flavor, the sweetener, or both. As appropriate for tea, there is no carbonation. Unsurprisingly, it's not as flavorful as Bang or Monster. Although you could argue that Bang or Monster are excessively bold in flavor, Raspberry Acai Green Tea is not a stimulating enough flavor in my eyes.
This CELSIUS can has a bright graphic on the front, displaying the berries they want you to taste. Whether that you can actually taste them is another matter, CELSIUS has another good looking can here.
Raspberry Acai Green Tea has 200mg of caffeine. This is approximately equivalent to two cups of coffee. Don't be fooled by "Green Tea" in the name, this drink is way more potent than a typical tea.
