Iced Tea (907 reviews)

Arizona Arnold Palmer Lite

Arizona  Arnold Palmer Lite

Arizona iced tea has a taste. You could pick it out in a lineup with your eyes closed and mouth open. I think that prior to the "lite" version, I've only had the "zero" which is made with aspartame/poison. This one has HFCS, which is less tastefully disturbing. It's definitely got a distinct taste to it after not really drinking it for a long time, but it's better than I remember. Think of an Arizona iced tea with lemon and then pour some lemonade in it. Simple.

I have never had any other company's half and half, but would be interested in trying them. I've heard that Sweet Leaf has one that's very good, but hard to come by.

Arizona Organic Yumberry Green Tea

Arizona  Organic Yumberry Green Tea

I drank nothing but Arizona iced tea for what seemed like years. It was cheap for a decent quantity, and it tasted great. When I stopped drinking HFCS I also lost a taste for Arizona, well except the Black and White. Now that they have released their Organic line I'm back on the team.
It tastes like a nice bitter green tea that has been properly sweetened. The yumberry flavor isn't incredibly strong, but it's there enough to be enjoyed. Someone should send me an actual yumberry. I've never seen one in fruit form.

Arizona Arnold Palmer Southern Sweet Tea and Pink Lemonade

Arizona  Arnold Palmer Southern Sweet Tea and Pink Lemonade

A nice twist to the ever growing populate of Arnold Palmers out there, and an even nicer change to the ever-growing Half & Half population. Right from the get-go, you get a mouthful of pink lemonade. I don't know the scientific/non-scientific explanation of the difference between regular and pink lemonade, but this is different. As my friend Mike said, "It just tastes pink." It does. He's right.

When I drank it, I got a lot of lemonade and was wondering where the iced tea was. You get it at the very end and as an aftertaste. It's pretty sweet, but the Arizona Sweet Tea is terribly sweet and it's probably the same stuff.

The mix is good. I don't know why they don't sell this everywhere, because it's different and it's a name that is trusted.

Arizona Arnold Palmer Lite Green Tea Lemonade

Arizona  Arnold Palmer Lite Green Tea Lemonade

As Jay mentioned earlier in his Arizona Yumberry review, we used to drink Arizona all the darn time. Like every day, all the time, for years. Once we started not actively drinking things with HFCS in them, we just stopped, cold turkey.

This is light, and has a bit of that Splenda bite, as that is what is used to make it "lite" but you know what? It's not terrible. I think that the lemon zing masks the artificial sweetener taste so it's acceptable to everyone's palate.

This is a good diet alternative. Sweet Leaf has a non-diet, no muss, no fuss, Half and Half that you should try if you're not looking for a diet drink with artificial sweeteners, but this drink isn't bad at all. Tell your fat uncle Harry to try this instead of constantly drinking delicious, triple thick, chocolate milkshakes.

Arizona Tea Water Pomegranate

Arizona  Tea Water Pomegranate

You think Arizona and you think iced tea. No one thinks about Arizona the state anymore. It is old news, my friends. You might think immigration problems, and that's alright due to its current topical status. Forget about immigrants for a second and think about this: you drinking tea. Relaxing no? Now cool it out a bit. Yeah, take that tea that you made and put it right in the fridge. Now, add a teensy bit of sugar to it to make it a bit more inviting that just a boring old, perfectly previously acceptable tea. Clap your hands together and take a sip, because you're done.

It's a pretty simple idea, right, and many other companies have done it in the past; Honest did it with their "Just a Tad Sweet" teas and they're good. This is along the same lines. It's got a strong, fruity nose to it, but it is a light flavor. You don't get a green tea bite, but you get just the right amount of sweet to know that there's something else (pomegranate) in there.

I like it. It's also completely organic so you can feel good about yourself and the world.

Arizona Tea Water Mandarin Orange

Arizona  Tea Water Mandarin Orange

Perhaps you are someone's grandmother who makes some hot tea. Perhaps you also, like most grandmothers, save your tea bags and reuse them. They lived through the Depression you know, and they will never trust the banks or the tea industry again! On the fourth or fifth use of the tea bag you would probably brew a tea that is as strong as this.
It tastes like what it says it is, tea water. You could also call it watered down tea, but I think that might cause some problems for the marketing department.
All joking aside, it's really not terrible. It's more of a tea flavored water than anything. The mandarin orange flavor is present in a strong aftertaste. I could see a lot of people enjoying this on a regular basis. It's too weak for my tastes.

Arizona Raspberry Iced Tea

Arizona  Raspberry Iced Tea

Try as I might, Arizona iced tea always reminds me of summer. Skating during the day, going to a show in the evening, and swimming at night. Cans and bottles of Arizona Iced Tea was my beverage of choice in-between and during each activity. That is how I spent many summers in Buffalo. Which is why Arizona iced tea= summer.

It has been a long time since I've had Arizona iced tea, and it's still good. Obviously it isn't the best iced tea out there, but it's just how i like it: sweet and fruit flavored. The only thing I wish is that this was made with cane sugar.

Arizona RX Energy Herbal Tonic

Arizona  RX Energy Herbal Tonic

It was very nice out today. People were out doing yard work, hanging out with parks, and walking their dogs down the road everywhere I went. What did I do today? I took a little stroll with my lady friend around Elmwood Village and then went with Editor Dan to explore an old cement factory that has been abandoned and left to rot for well over 50 years. Let me tell you, I think we had most people's plans for the day beat. There are also some caves back their, but they were either sealed off by a rock slide, or we are too big of idiots to find them.

I can also tell you something else. When exploring you work up a mean thirst. We stopped at a convenience store to pick up some refreshments. Unfortunately for us their selection was pretty beat. I grabbed this Arizona, because I needed something and it was cheap. I thought we had already reviewed it, but when I checked it somehow had slipped through the cracks.

This was an old standby for myself for years. I would go to the University Heights section of town to go to basement shows all the time. In-between bands we would walk to the nearby gas station for iced tea and this is what I purchased 90% of the time. I always referred to it as "dirt flavored." To clarify it actually tastes nothing like dirt at all, but the coloring and design of the can always made me think of some old tincture that surely would taste like dry mud. It's actually way, way sweet. It's green tea with mango, pear and lemon juice in it. It also has some herbs in it that make it a half-assed energy drink. I don't think I've ever felt any energy from one of these, but I sure do like the way they taste. It's very different than any of the other flavors of Arizona. I believe it is the only fruit flavored green tea they produce. The green tea compared to the black makes all the difference.

If this were a new company that I found I probably would have given this a three bottle review, but since I have so much history with this drink, and I started drinking it before I discovered non-HFCS teas, I will give it a four. I loved it back then when I was ignorant, and I still enjoy it a great deal now.

Arizona Unsweetened Brewed Tea

Arizona  Unsweetened Brewed Tea

When someone serves me an unsweetened tea I expect it to be tea brewed in water and nothing else. Sure it's bitter, but that is the whole point of drinking unsweetened. I want it to taste real. Arizona did not meet my expectations. They decided to throw in a few other ingredients. Mainly honey, natural bisulfate of soda and vitamin c. The result is a cheap tasting tea that really doesn't do anything for me.

I suppose if you were used to drinking overly sweetened teas and your doctor told you that you needed to cut down your sugar intake this would make the transition to unsweetened teas less of a shock to your system. It just doesn't taste right to me though.

Arizona Half & Half Raspberry

Arizona  Half & Half Raspberry

Joe was eight. He's nine now, but he was eight when this story took place. Joey had a jerk other brother who always played jokes on him. Joe and his bother Alan went to a little corner store and Joe saw a new bottle of Arizona half and half. It wasn't just any half and half, it was raspberry half and half. When Joe reached in, Alan yelled from across the store and said, "You can't have that. You're not old enough." Joe, who was obviously old enough to drink lemonade and tea, didn't believe him, but after way too much effort on Alan's part, he actually convinced Joe that he needed to be ten to buy that bottle. Alan said that he knew a kid that would make him a fake ID.

They went to Alan's friend Darren's house and they went in the basement. In the basement, Darren had a printer, and a digital camera. He drew a mustache on Joe with magic marker to make him look ten, took the picture, printed it on a photocopy of Darren's mom's old license, covered it in scotch tape, and gave it to Joe. Joe paid Darren the fee, one bag of Tropical Skittles, and they went back to the store.

Joe went up to the counter with his half and half, showed the woman behind the counter the ID, and gave her a dollar. She laughed, handed him a penny, and Joe ran outside, happy to try a new flavor. With a fake mustache, fake ID, one penny, and new drink, Joe was on top of the world. He took his first sip and sighed because he got away with it. It tastes like processed, but not bad, diet lemonade and raspberry iced tea. No one let him know that he didn't need that ID until he was twelve, but by then it didn't matter because he was old enough and didn't need the ID anymore.
