I was very curious as to what "tea water" tasted like, so I bought a bottle of Arizona Tea Water, Organic Green Tea Pomegranate flavor. I wish I had paid a little more attention to the label, specifically the "WATER" part, because this is so lightly sweetened that it tastes pretty similar to plain ole H2O - emphasis on the word LIGHTLY.
The pomegranate flavor is not very strong, and neither is the tea flavor, but that does come through somewhat. Again, the sweetness is almost non-existent, which was a little unexpected for me - I just thought it would be sweeter for some reason.
Each 8 ounce serving of Arizona Tea Water Organic Green Tea Pomegranate provides 20 calories from 5 grams of sugars. The ingredients are premium brewed organic green tea (from Poland Spring water), organic evaporated cane juice, organic pomegranate from juice concentrate, organic honey, organic fruit and vegetable juice for color, natural flavors, organic flavor, organic tea essence, vitamin C and citric acid. There is 10 mg of caffeine per serving.
When it comes to bottled teas, Snapple Diet Peach Tea is my favorite ... so far. I still like to try different varieties from time to time because I don't want to miss out on others that I might really like. That's what led me to try Arizona Diet Iced Tea with Lemon Flavor variety.
If I were to use just one word to describe this it would be "Gross!" Maybe it's just me, but the lemon flavor seemed cloyingly sweet, to the point that when I took a couple of sips, I had to put the bottle down. It tastes like it's sweetened with fake honey, which is not something I want to taste. I couldn't finish the bottle, and I can't recommend this.
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.
