Monster Rehab Rojo Tea + Energy

Monday, January 9th, 2012

I finally managed to track down a can of Monster Rehab Rojo Tea, and found it to be quite refreshing. The primary ingredients are rooibos tea and cranberry (other ingredients include black and green tea, coconut water, gogi berry, acai berry, and mangosteen fruit), with a taste very similar to Boston iced tea. It has a lighter sweetness than the Green Tea + Energy, and very little tartness despite the cranberry. Again, you’re looking at 10 calories per serving [about 2 servings per 15.5 oz can], but with 3g of carbs per serving instead of the 4g previous Rehabs offer. Like the rest of the Rehab brand, the drink lacks carbonation and the “Rehab Energy Blend” which gives a pleasant, long-lasting buzz without a major crash. Yet another winner from those energy drink geniuses at Monster.

Now, if I could only find the [dreaded] ProTEAn + Energy flavor…

Monster Rehab Green Tea + Energy

Sunday, January 8th, 2012


So it seems that Monster has expanded their Rehab line past the original Tea and Lemonade Arnold Palmer-esque flavor to include Green Tea*. I’m a big green tea drinker, so I had to snatch up a couple of cans the moment I saw it at the store. It has a pleasantly fruity flavor that pairs well with the tea, although it seems a bit sweeter than its predecessor (no doubt thanks to the acai berry, goji berry, pineapple juice, coconut water, and prickly pear also listed in the ingredients). It’s also 10 calories and 4g of carbs per serving [about 2 servings per 15.5 oz can], non-carbonated, and the “Rehab Energy Blend” gives a pleasant, long-lasting buzz without a major crash. If you’re ever looking for a light pick-me-up, Green Tea + Energy isn’t a bad choice.

*There’s two additional flavors of Rehab, Rojo Tea and ProTEAn, that I still haven’t seen in stores.
