Review: Arizona No Carb Diet Green Tea with Ginseng

First of all, fuck for what, why is the name a million words long?

Secondly. This is the proper size for iced tea. It is 23 ounces of refreshing goodness. That's 680 mL for those of you who are in the wrong countries.

Third. Tastewise, this thing is like... the lovechild of Sweet Tea and water. It has a touch of honey, so it kind of coats your mouth with a little sweetness, then punches in with some tang towards the end. But it really tastes nothing like tea-- no tannic effect or dark flavor. It is more along the lines of a water with lemon and honey.

YET! It is lightly caffeinated. Just enough to keep you awake at 5:30PM on a Wednesday when you were up all night with a sick toddler and have been at work all day and still need to make it until 7:00 before you can lock the store and run home to take a bath and fall into bed.

Fifthly or something, it has zero calories, no sugar, and 75% of your daily dose of Vitamin C.

Also, DOUBLE BONUS, it is only 99 cents.

In conclusion: cheap, big, relatively inoffensive on the tastebuds, like water but tasty, with a slight buzz of caffeine and NO SUGAR??

  1. Arizona makes amazing drinks. I love their Arnold Palmer and their green tea is one of the few prepackaged teas I enjoy. Plus, as you said, they are CHEAP. But seriously, try the Arnold Palmer. It is like delicious nectar on your tongue.Arizona makes amazing drinks. I love their Arnold Palmer and their green tea is one of the few prepackaged teas I enjoy. Plus, as you said, they are CHEAP.

  2. Ugh, my phone is a whore. Ignore the repetition there. Although it does make me seem more emphatic about you trying the Arnold Palmer.

  3. Jade, I feel like I have heard someone say that exact same thing to me before.

    Also, I do not think we carry the Arnold Palmer. We have like 12 kinds of Arizonas, but that MAY NOT BE ONE OF THEM DEAR GOD NO.

    I could be obnoxious and try to remember all of the flavors... but I only remember three. I will look for it, though.

    ETA: WAIT. I thought an Arnold Palmer involved beer and lemonade. What am I thinking of?

  4. The drink named after Arnold's long-lost alcoholic brother, Alfie Palmer?

    MGD 64 Lemonade?

    Really, though, it's called a Shandy. But an Arnold Palmer is named after the famous golfer's favorite drink, half iced tea and half lemonade.

  5. So one of my customers came in with a can of this the other day, and I mentioned wanting to try it but being unsuccessful in finding it. So 20 minutes after he left, he reappeared with a can, telling me he went to the store specifically for me to get the drink.

    I mean, after that, I was obligated to love it.
