If and when I want a hot drink I usually chose jasmine flavored green tea. I actually much prefer the taste of green tea to any other hot tea I have ever had. So I was happy to see these ice teas with green tea on the supermarket shelf.

I don’t particularly love the taste of apple in ice tea so I decided to try the "exotic" flavor, even though it sort of bothered me that they did not write which exotic fruits were used.
Even after I tasted the ice tea I still can't tell you what fruits were used to flavor this tea and "warrant" the name Exotic. I didn’t find it all that exotic but that may be a good thing because I often don’t enjoy thing that are too exotic.
Maybe it's just that I don’t have a well enough developed palate to pin point exactly what fruits they used to flavor this ice tea but to me it tasted very much like their popular peach flavored Nestea Ice Tea. I actually had one in my refrigerator so I did a little comparison. Yes there was a difference, mainly in the aftertaste but to me it wasn’t all that dramatic of a difference. The peach was a little bit of a more mild flavor and I thought it had a slightly less intense aftertaste. But I did not think the new Exotic Ice Tea with Green Tea "screamed" either green tea or exotic fruit flavor. It is possible that someone who doesn’t enjoy green tea may not agree with me and may really notice the green tea taste in this new ice tea.
The main issue I have with both the peach and this new exotic flavored ice tea is that they are way too sweet for me. I don’t know if the diet ones are less sweet but I would really like to taste these same Nestea Ice Teas with way less sugar. If Nestea really wants to join the "health trend" maybe flavored green teas with less/no sugar should be their next new item.
Nestea Exotic Flavored Ice Tea with Green Tea has no preservatives and no artificial food coloring.
Bottom Line: I didn’t think that Nestea's Exotic Ice Tea with Green Tea was all that exotic but it was enjoyable enough. If I had to choose between this Nestea with Green Tea Exotic Flavor and the Peach Flavored Nestea Ice Tea, I may choose the exotic flavored one simply because of the benefits I might get from the added green tea but on flavor alone I would rather the peach one.
In case you missed them, the other ice teas I reviewed this summer are Tapuzina's Herbal Nana & Lemon Infusion Drink , Vitaminchick's Peach Ice-Tea Mix and Wissotzky's Litchi Celebration Summer Tea.
