C+ Swiss Hemp Iced Tea


A review of C+ Swiss Hemp Iced Tea, which is a black tea drink with hemp extract.

Hemp is found in everything from your natural foods market to your favorite clothing store.  So, C+ Swiss Hemp Ice Tea should have a mass appeal, but the big pot leaf on the front makes this a super-hard sell. That is a real shame, as this is one of the best Iced Tea drinks I have had in a long while!

Regardless if you are a recreational pot smoker or a conservative republican politician (not that those 2 things are mutually exclusive), this drink has amazing health benefits, amazing taste, and is completely legal.

Flavor

This tea is a blend of black and green tea with hemp seed extract syrup mixed in. I’m not really familiar with hemp Iced Teas, but I really wish I were.  This stuff is far more tasty than anything by “Xing” or “Arizona“, and could even give “Who’s Your Daddy” a real run for it’s money. It tastes very rich and complex, very earthy but not at all sour or chalky.

I completely expected a novelty product, something with a slight twinge of marijuana flavor to it, but this has the real deal and lots of it. Like mixing french fries and ice cream, this is one combination which sounds like a disaster on paper, but a stroke of genius on the tongue.

Hemp Tea Ingredients/Energy

There is nothing here that you would not want in your body. Everything is natural and delicious, and the caffeine rush from the black tea is strong and natural. This is non-carbonated, using hemp bloom syrup (5 %), plain old sugar, lemon juice, black tea extract and hemp bloom extract (0.0015 %)”, and the little tiny THC extract goes a long long way.

This really has the flavor of pot, but completely adds to the flavor of the tea. Everything in this tastes natural, delicious, and unique. In terms of energy, I would expect about 80-100mg in the small can, about as much as you would find in 8oz of strong black tea.  There is 90 calories in here from plain sugar.

Packaging

This is the big letdown. There are sooo many things wrong with this can. First, the can is way too tiny. I could have finished 3 of these little 8oz cans in one sitting! Maybe it is the American in me, but oversize this puppy! I like my teas too big to hold easily, like Arizona’s or at least in the slightly larger 16oz glass Honest tea sized containers.  The flavor is way too good not to have it in something bigger than this.

    you said this is legal? is that only if you have a medicinal card or what?

  • ted

    No legal for anyone. Check out their website though it’s still under construction. You should be able to order some soon. http://www.coolbeverage-usa.com/

  • I do not even think this is an energy drink. As far a legality there are tons of hemp based food products including 420 energy drink which actually is an energy drink.

    Riighhhhttt…..as a caffeine-addicted air traffic controller, you can bet I won’t be trying this. Damned if I’m going to fail a piss test for a caffeine fix.

  • jane

    don’t try it, it taste absolutly disgusting. I had to pour it down the drain when I tried it. wasn’t even worth the 1 I paid for it.

    I had the opportunity to try this while vacationing in Switzerland. I thought it was quite tasty — a very solid herbal tea in my judgment. I had it at room temperature out of an outdoor unrefrigerated snack/drink machine (as is typical there and in Germany) at a small countryside train station. Over there, it comes in an all-paperboard “can” with a foil seal. It delivered a pleasant pick me up with no discernible crash. Very much recommended.

    I had one a minute ago I took from my dad then I googled what it was and now worried since its pot can it hurt me or get me high if I drink too many plus is there a age limit to buy them in the united states cause it did taste good

  • Ted

    These cannot make a person high. They are made with non-THC hemp.

  • Angel

    I had no idea there were still SO many people in the dark about the difference between hemp and marijuana! Please America, educate yourselves before making some of the dumbest comments I’ve ever read. Sorry to come off so rude but damn, stop coming off so stupid! People like this are the reason it isn’t already legal throughout the entire country! News flash! First of all, hemp is NOT the same as marijuana. Secondly, even if it was, marijuana kills less people than the police, cause IT DOESN’T KILL PEOPLE!!

    I hope that within the last 8 years someone has told you all that’s wrong with this statement.

  • Jenny Poudrier

    I love this 8.4 fl oz can! No need to go bigger . . . that is so American of you to say. It’s perfect the way it is! Are you in need of more? So, buy more cans!
