I'm a big fan of Arizona Diet Green Tea with Ginseng, and while buying a couple of jugs of it, I saw a bottle of Arizona No Carb Blueberry Green Tea sitting all alone on the shelf. Since it was the last bottle, I decided to try it for myself - who knows, I might discover another favorite Arizona beverage.
When I got home, I poured a glass of this crimson/purple-hued tea over some ice and took a sip. The bottle states just what it tastes like "pure green tea with the wonderful sweet and tart punch of blueberries." The drink has just the right amount of sweetness - just enough, and nothing overly saccharine. The berry flavor isn't overwhelming - rather, it coincides peacefully with the flavor of the tea. But naturally, this is just a 'flavor' - there is no blueberry juice in this. It does say "no carbs" so I figured (and you should too), that there would be no fruit juice - or such a minimal amount that there would be no benefits from it. Make no mistake, this is mainly "blueberry flavored tea" - not that there is anything wrong with that.
One serving (8 ounces) of Arizona No Carb Diet Blueberry Green Tea provides a mere 5 calories and 2 grams of total carbohydrates - no sugar. There is 7.5 mg caffeine and the main sweeteners are sorbitol, sucralose (Splenda) and Acesulfame-K.
The ingredients are: Premium Brewed Green Tea Using Filtered Water, Sorbitol, Natural Flavors, Citric Acid, Black Carrot Extract, Sucralose, Acesulfame Potassium. Take note of the absence of blueberry [juice], but what do you expect from a drink with only 5 calories!
A huge 42 ounce container cost me only $1.50, which I think is worth every penny. This drink is perfect for when you want something more than plain water, with a little flavor, but little or no calories.
