This was especially good after a few hours of night snowboarding. The ice cold temperatures in the car kept the can cold while we bombed the slopes, so coming back a sore mess to my refreshingly frosty sweet tea—well, I couldn’t have asked for anything more. ;D
AriZona’s iced teas have always been hit or miss with me. Their standard lemon flavored iced tea used to be my go-to, no frills beverage. Once they started coming out with more complex iced tea flavors bombarded with fruit fusions and energy potions (lol), the more I strayed from AriZona’s drinks altogether—with the exception of maybe their Green Tea w/ Ginseng & Honey variety.
Well, it wasn’t until my sister implored me to try their newish Southern Style Sweet Tea that I came running back to their tall $0.99 cans again. Everything I loved about their basic lemon iced tea in terms of simplicity, I found in this iced tea. No frills and straight to the point, even when it comes to the packaging*. It is what it says it is, and that’s an iced tea sweetened with gobs of sugar for a deliciously refreshing, thirst-quenching experience.
For me, that’s what puts this sweet tea above its competition (i.e. McDonald’s $1 Sweet Tea): overall, it’s a refreshment and it owns up to it.
Did I mention how refreshing this sweet tea is? ;P
*An interesting side note about AriZona’s original Sweet Tea packaging, before it was changed due to racial undertones: http://www.snopes.com/racial/business/arizona.asp
This tea is okay. I am not the biggest fan of sweetened ice tea but it wasn’t bad.
You can get a tall boy for $1, it’s cold and available. It’s a good option when your in the middle of nowhere and there isn’t much to choose from or if your buying drinks for a crew of hardworking brothers.
Had a big can with friends. It was alright except for the high fructose corn syrup and splenda always makes me feel a little sick.
Let us presume for a moment that not all bottled teas are evil. And let us further presume that sweetening green tea is also not evil. If we categorize this as tea-in-a-can and line it up against other bottled teas of a similar price point, there is simply no contest. If it’s hot outside, and you’re walking around the Pacific Place Neighborhood in Seattle, this is a fantastic beverage. Especially since you can drop a single on the counter and walk away with a great cooling beverage.
I like this iced tea. It is a bit sweeter than I like but it has really nice peach flavor.
They actually make teabags of this now, and that’s what I drank today. Want to ice it to see if it tastes similar to the canned stuff, or healthier without the HFCS.
Backlogging from yesterday. This is too sweet for my tastes, but after a long, grueling hike it sure quenched my thirst – hey it’s better than pop.
Today was a typical hot August day in the Midwest. Time to reach for a cold drink. Since I was in a hurry, I went the simple route using AriZona Peach Iced Tea Mix. I try to avoid the artificial food colorings found in most other drink mixes. This hit the spot!
My dorm neighbor in college used to heat this up in the microwave—“America, this is why the world hates you!”
It’s basically on tap at my parent’s place!
too lazy to boil another cup of something else while I’m reading about Art History this evening…
4th cup of the day… cold! 1:11pm!
