XS Energy Drink Review - Tea Berry Blast
As I stated on Sunday I was fortunate enough to receive a variety of the XS Energy Drinks. On Sunday I reviewed the 1st one, the XS Energy Drink - Cola Blast and I was more than happy with the results. In fact I was so happy I decided to give the XS Energy Drink - Tea Berry Blast a try earlier than I had originally planned. Instead of doing the review later in the week I thought today would be a good day to review the Tea Berry Blast drink.
XS Energy Drink Review - Tea Berry Blast: Taste
Tea Berry blast is not carbonated, only contains 12 calories and has one gram of carbs as it uses artificial sweeteners (acesulfame potassium & sucralose). Two of the main ingredients are green tea extract and black tea extract. As I have stated in other reviews, I am usually not fond of tea based drinks, but I have grown an acquired taste for them. Well the XS Tea Berry Blast was no exception. This has a very light green tea flavor with a nice base of raspberry flavoring. This combination made for a very refreshing flavor. I was actually disappointed when the 8.4 ounce was gone. I wish they made this in a larger can, the flavor was that refreshing and had no medicinal after taste at all. Taste Rating = 8.8!
XS Energy Drink Review - Tea Berry Blast: Kick
Well the main energy ingredients seem to come from the B-Vitamins and the Green Tea and Black Tea extract. There is also some Ginseng listed on the ingredient list as well. The can itself recommends against the consumption of this beverage if you are sensitive to caffeine. However, I do not see caffeine listed anywhere on the ingredient list? So is there caffeine in this drink, does it come from the Green & Black tea extract? I have no idea. The kick I received was pretty good. No sugar, no jitters. The delivery of the energy seemed a little slower, probably because of the lack of sugar, but overall the drink accomplished what it was supposed to! Kick Rating 8.7!
XS Energy Drink Review - Tea Berry Blast: Final Judgment
Well my only complaint for this drink seems to be that it is only 8.4 ounces. The taste is very refreshing and goes down smooth. The kick, although not outstanding is very pleasing! Combine that with the fact that it only has 12 calories and 1 carb and you have yourself a pretty well done energy drink. Kudos to XS. Final Judgment - 8.8!
