With spring around the corner I was looking for a refreshing beverage to enjoy over the next few months so I picked up the Kirkland Signature Iced Tea Mix.
You better like iced tea if you buy this because it’s a massive container. I paid $10.99 Canadian for the three kilogram container, which isn’t bad considering one container makes 33 one litre pitchers.
To make one pitcher you combine four heaping tablespoons with one liter of water. If you don’t want an entire pitcher you mix two tablespoons of mix with with one and a half cups of water. You can enjoy the mix hot or cold, I’ve had it both ways and definitely prefer it cold but as a teenager whenever I was sick I’d have it warm to soothe my throat since I didn’t like actual tea! The best before date is a year and four months from when we purchased it. If I were hosting a big block party, workplace barbecue or big gathering I think this is a cost efficient and convenient way to serve iced tea.
Two tablespoons of mix has 140 calories, zero grams of fat, 35 grams of carbohydrates, zero grams of fibre, 33 grams of sugar and one milligram of sodium. This is obviously not healthy and is loaded with sugar and carbohydrates without any nutritional benefits. The first ingredient is sugar.
I followed the instructions for making the iced tea and if you follow the preparation method it’s not too sweet and tastes pretty refreshing. The taste is okay if you need a lot of iced tea but not great. It does have a nice noticeable lemon flavor and you can easily adjust the sweetness level by adding less or more mix. If you’re an iced tea fanatic the mix is definitely nowhere near as tasty as Brisk or Nestea.
I prefer this over the good host 100%
How would it compare to Goodhost? Brisk is canned and I never liked that anyway. Nestea is like brewed, but it would be fare to compare it against another mix.
I personally prefer it to Goodhost. We’ve been drinking this for decades. My father calls it creamy, but that makes zero sense to me.
