Recent Tasting Notes
Usually I am not a fan of canned/bottled or pre-packaged brewed teas because they’re usually much too sweet for me. This Arizona Green Tea with Honey and Ginseng has a pleasantly crisp green tea flavor. The citrus carries all the way through and there’s just enough of a hint of ginseng to keep me sipping at this tea. Ginseng is one of my most favorite flavors in tea, and while this Arizona Green Tea is still a bit too sweet for an everyday tea, it’s nice to have every once in a while on hot summer days when I just want a sugary sweet treat.
The addition of American oak during AriZona’s brewing process adds a distinctive flavor to the final brewed tea, but there was an overwhelming sour taste I found incredibly off-putting. Even more off-putting is the fact that this unsweetened tea actually contains three different sweeteners: honey, sugar, and maple sugar—a fact that completely escaped my notice until I had finished most of the bottle.
Yes, you read that correctly, this unsweetened tea contains three different types of sugar!
This completely blows my mind…
These sweeteners are only included in small amounts—less than 1g—an amount that according to the label is deemed a dietary insignificant amount of sugar, but the fact that they are included at all in a tea labeled unsweetened really troubles me. For that reason alone I wouldn’t recommend this tea, but quite frankly, the sourness that is present overwhelms the delicate oak flavor, ruining the entire beverage.
You can read the full review on my blog:
Not like I really had any doubt, but this is awful. I picked it up out of sheer curiosity while on vacation. Tasted like every single bottled tea I’ve ever had – like old tea that has begun to develop that somewhat moldy flavor from having sat for a month in the refrigerator. And “unsweetened”? It is to laugh. The first ingredient is tea, followed by honey, sugar and maple.
So… yeah. This is just bad. It is truly not worth choosing over bottled water (or anything thing else) when on the road.
A review of Diet Green Tea with Ginseng by Arizona Tea
I tend to not like the wording “diet” on products, even thought I am always dieting. I purchased this tea at the market last week because they were on sale and surely I miss the heading in big prints on the bottle sporting the words “Diet” Green Tea with Ginseng.
I purchased two bottles and brought them home and placing them in the refrigerator. And when I did finally realize/acknowledge the wording “Diet” I squealed in horror since I know there would be bitterness and after taste to it.
I had this tea and as expected that there would be an after taste to it. I fixed myself a tall glass filled with crushed ice and pour the tea in it and started sipping it. Tea has a pleasant fill to it but when swallowing there is that bitterness or something astringent like left to linger at the back of my throat.
The ginseng is very pleasant in the tea adding to flavoring and body of tea. And I believe that this tea would be wonderful if not diet.
A review of Arizona Green Tea with Ginseng and Honey by Arizona Tea
Company: Arizona Tea
Tea Name: Arizona Green Tea with Ginseng and Honey
Tea Type/Varietal: green
Steeping Vessel/Amt. Leaf: iced tea
Liquor Color: pale brown
I have had iced teas made by Arizona Tea company and they have mostly been a good drink to have while having dinner or a meal. I am happy to say this Green Tea with ginseng and honey is just right with my noodles. It is lightly sweetened with the ginseng and honey; this combination gives it a citrus flavor. I mean that the tea was like having a cup of tea with lemon and honey.
The tea is cold and smooth and I could discern the ginseng in the aroma along with a citrusy zest to the palette once tasted. I don’t usually like iced drinks but this Arizona brand is quite pleasingly light and once in a while to have a cup of it does no harm I think to say.
Tea Name: Green Tea with Ginseng and Hone
Tea Type/ Green
Steeping Vessel/Amt. Leaf: bottled tea
Liquor Color: light honey
I purchased this tea from a Family Dollar store because the price was right. I was thinking something sweet and soda like; so I got hubby to get it for me. At dinner, I fixed a cup of this tea with ice for us both. Tea is a lovely lemony honey color, texture is sweet but not too much so. The Ginseng is naturally sweet with a chamomile like scent and taste.
As I am drinking this Ginseng tea, I immediately think of Chamomile; something of the aroma and taste I find similarly to a warm cup of Chamomile tea.
I found this tea to be soothing and not at all overly sweet as soda or can juices can be.
