AriZona Lemon Iced Tea Sugar Free Drink Mix Review

Updated Review Date: 06/01/2017
Original Review Date: 04/07/2012

         Yes it really is true; you can enjoy the classic taste of naturally flavored AriZona sugar free Lemon Iced Tea without the worry of calories, carbohydrates, or sodium. Like all AriZona sugar free powdered drink mix flavors, it's also a viable solution for diabetics or anyone watching their sugar intake since it's sweetened with Splenda and acesulfame potassium. While it does have a little caffeine per serving (15g), it's not excessive and shouldn't be a problem unless you have a sensitivity to caffeine. Each serving also contains the antioxidants you'd expect, as it really is 100% natural tea you're drinking.
         As far as availability goes for the powdered version, AriZona Sugar Free Lemon Iced Tea is sold in canister packs and boxes of individual Tea Stix, both of which can be found at Amazon. The canister packs contain 6 individual tubs of drink mix, each of which makes 2-quarts and the Tea Stix are available in boxes of 10, each of which flavors one 16 - 20oz bottle of water.
         Let's continue by looking closer at the nutrition information, ingredients, and scorecard for this classic flavor.

The Scorecard for AriZona Sugar Free Lemon Iced Tea Drink Mix

Based on our four point rating system, here's how this flavor scores:

Taste: Excellent. The Splenda (sucralose) combined with acesulfame potassium left no artificial aftertaste for me or a few friends that also helped to taste test this flavor. We were all in agreement that the taste is quite accurate and fairly close to home-brewed iced tea with fresh lemons added. As always, taste is subjective but it's a definite top score for taste on our end.(+1)

Packaging Waste: Like the other 3 sugar free flavors from AriZona, the interior and exterior packaging for the canisters is fully recyclable, but only the exterior packaging is definitely recyclable for the Tea Stix. The interior plastic foil for each Tea Stix that actually holds the mix may or may not be recyclable where you live. (+1)

Value: AriZona Sugar Free Lemon Iced Tea is competitively priced per unit, be it canisters or "On The Go" Tea Stix. (+1)

Health Factor: There are only a few ingredients besides the instant tea, it doesn't contain any preservatives or artificial colors, plus it has antioxidants. AriZona Sugar Free Lemon Iced Tea is also carb free, calorie free and sodium free. There is some caffeine but not an exorbitant amount. Overall it gets an easy top score for the health factor (+1)

Overall Rating: A perfect 4 out of 4 for the canisters and 3.5 out of 4 for the Tea Stix. And yes the canister packs for AriZona Sugar Free Lemon Iced Tea do win the ultimate golden cup award - Good job AriZona.
