In July, I posted about being willing to support the creation of the drink REBBL, which was set to launch with the help of others through raising enough money to set the business off. Thankfully it worked. We were sent a box of 4 bottles of REBBL Hibiscus Mint teas. REBBL is made by people who were former slaves in the Peruvian Amazon. Not For Sale has been helping them rise up and have their own businesses as a form to combat human trafficking/slavery there.
I am not really fond of drinking much outside of water or chocolate milk, but I had a sip of REBBL to see if I would like it. I have yet to try Snapple and other iced teas, so really this was my first try at something new like this. The experience was strange but exciting. As I took a little sip, it tasted as what I suppose is the tea flavor of the drink mixed with what reminded me of Wrigley’s Spearmint gum. One sip was all I took, but Rob used to be very fond of Snapple drinks. He said this doesn’t taste anything like it as he thought it would and is so much more delicious like a “smoother green tea”. He tried to not drink them all within the week, but he probably did. He wants more, and hopefully we can have more in the future.
One thing I loved about this drink was that it was so large (16 oz) and had no crazy ingredients. They were all things like spearmint, peppermint, and various roots extracts and juices! It is a very natural and organic drink. On the label was info about “Amazon rituals” for what they drink in the mornings for energy (not coffee) and other things. There is caffeine in this drink, it has no GMO nastiness, it is vegan, and it is fair-trade certified. That’s all really cool! I love the little hummingbird on the top of the label too. So pretty.
Want to buy a case now? Go Here to do so!! If you had the opportunity to try it as well, let me know what you thought about it too.
