Five Guys

teabag2-5I would eat at Five Guys so much more often if they had better iced tea.  Most locations have Gold Peak brand iced tea from a concentrate. Like I have said for other restaurants that serve this type of Gold Peak tea, I don’t really care for the taste. It is a little weak tasting and does have an acidic taste. My main complaint though, when comparing to other restaurant iced tea, is that you can really tell it is not freshly brewed. From what I have read, if you get tea from a dispenser like the one pictures below, you are getting a “bag-in-box” iced tea from concentrate with what the Gold Peak calls an “authentic home-brewed taste”.  I would disagree with this description. Also the ingredients include: Natural Tea Essence, Caramel Color, Sodium Benzoate and Potassium Sorbate, and Phosphoric Acid. This seems like a lot of strange ingredients for a simple glass of iced tea.product.aspx
