Surprisingly good for an iced green tea. The tea tasted sweet, though since it is ‘infused’ with passion fruit and papaya, but lists no sugar in the details or on the menu.
The large Panera Bread Iced Green Tea has 180 calories!
The calorie count due to the added fruit juice could be why this tea tasted so good. Panera menu didn’t have a zero calorie option, and the infusion of other flavors into the green tea was not optional.
We liked the taste very much, although is didn’t taste like unsweetened green tea like we expected. The calories were a big surprise though. Wish the menu at Panera Bread listed the added sugar amounts. Making this at home requires the RIGHT tea and good quality water. You can sweeten the tea with honey while the tea is still hot.
If you work at Panera Bread and can confirm the brand as Republic of Tea please let us know! So many people want to make this green tea at home, especially when it is not in-season at the restaurant. Making your own no-calorie version at home may be much cheaper, and better for you, than the version PB serves.
No, the 2020 subscription did not include the cold tea, but does include the hot tea + coffee + iced coffee.
