TRADER Joe’s fans know the importance of snagging the store’s seasonal deals as soon as they become available.
A fan-favorite iced tea is back on the shelves, but if you want to try the iconic candy-flavored drink, rush to the store right away.
Eagle-eyed shoppers like the person behind Trader Joe’s List, an Instagram account devoted to finding the best produce and deals at the grocery store, have announced the return of the tasty beverage.
In the tea and coffee department, look out for Trader Joe’s Mint Watermelon Black Tea, priced at $4.99 for 20 bags.
Perfect for making a chilled summer drink, the tea bags come in a pretty pastel colored envelope.
On the back, the packaging explains what die-hard fans already know. “We are ready to be in your tea!” It is reading.
Some buyers who have enjoyed the tea for past summers may have trouble finding it due to a packaging change.
“Not in?!” asked an Instagram user in comments on Trader Joe’s List’s post. The account confirmed that the brand has switched to cardboard packaging in recent years.
“I miss the cute tin it came in,” wrote another person.
Several shoppers shared their own reviews of the tea, while others suggested delicious combinations you can make at home with other Trader Joe’s products.
“Tastes like bubble gum,” wrote one delighted shopper.
“So good!” wrote another. “Like a funny rancher.”
If you can find the Mango Black Tea at Trader Joe’s, you can even create an iced tea cocktail of sorts.
“Mix two bags with two bags of mango tea and you have an amazing watermelon mango iced tea!” one user suggested.
“I’m tossing in some TJ’s Decaf Green Tea,” shared another person.
You can also add sprigs of fresh mint to the drink before serving, or give it a citrus touch with lemon or lime.
And when you see the tea on the shelves, stock up because it will be sold out.
“I just ran out of stock from last summer,” confessed one shopper, saying she would buy more as soon as possible. “This makes the BEST iced tea.”
