A 2009 Chef’s Best Award winner, Diet Gold Peak Tea is a delightful sugar free drink. The brand is owned by The Coca-Cola Company, which knows a little bit about brand recognition. The packaging is simple, but elegant. The tea has a taste that can only come from quality tea leaves. With Coca-Cola’s help this tea should become quite popular. The tea could be slightly sweeter, but what person brought up on sweet tea in the south would refuse to have their tea a little sweeter? If you’re not accustomed to making a trip to the store for a new bag of sugar each time you brew a batch of tea, then you’re going to like this tea. We usually hate to give credit to a beverage that’s sweetened with aspartame, but Gold Peak gave us no options. We kept taking sip after sip waiting for some sort of aftertaste, but nothing ever materialized. This is a quality iced tea.
Each eight ounce serving contains 25mg of sodium and that’s it. Gold Peak’s mix of aspartame and acesulfame potassium must have taken months to perfect, because we think the aspartame is undetectable. With zero calories and zero carbohydrates, this sugar free drink has to be one of our better finds this year, and we encourage you to give Diet Gold Peak Tea a try!
