Review: Arizona Green Tea with Ginseng and Honey

I am a consumer of Arizona Green Tea. I don’t drink it daily but occasionally.

Green Tea and Ginseng are two important things while we talk about good health.

Cindy 5 ShowcaseGreen tea is full of antioxidants and Ginseng has innumerable health benefits. When you combine these two with Honey, the effect is sure going to be synergised.

But, let me tell you, I find freshly prepared green tea with Ginseng and Honey at home, different than the canned one. Beside these two options, there is also an option in powder stix available on the market.

In this article I will be talking about the canned and powder versions of Arizona Green Tea with Ginseng and Honey. At the end of the article I will show you the homemade recipe for this tea.

And before going any further, if you didn’t know, Ginseng tea alone has many health benefits.

Review Arizona Green Tea With Ginseng And Honey

Arizona Green Tea With Ginseng and Honey

THE CANNED or READY TO USE VERSIONS (usually with added sugars)

Arizona Green Tea Canister

In this canned green tea, there is a high amount of added sugars. It contains HFCS, which is High Fructose Corn Syrup. A large number of products that you consume contain HFCS.

For you information, High Fructose Corn Syrup is a highly processed ingredient manufactured from surplus corn. Manufacturers use HFCS as a cheap alternative to sugar.

I am not a person with a sweet tooth. So for me, this tea is a little too sweet. The natural sugar and added sugars will make it taste extra sweet to you.

Although the taste is very refreshing, I prefer the slightly bitter taste that you get in any home made green tea with Ginseng. Plus, the sweeteners like HFCS in food are becoming the sole cause of rising obesity.

Please note that there are available canned versions of this tea made without added sugars!

Moving on to the positive part, I will tell you the benefits of Arizona Green Tea with Ginseng and Honey.

Benefits

  1. First on my list will be the reusable packaging that the tea comes in.
  2. You can get an instant dose of energy anywhere by having this tea. The sugars in this, will make your body active and refreshed.
  3. The taste of this tea is very refreshing and pleasing. It does revitalize my sense. Especially when it is hot outside, it is a great drink to cool your body.
  4. It is rich in antioxidants like any other green tea. I will mention the details of its nutritional content below.
  5. When I feel tired and dull, this tea helps me significantly to raise my energy level.
  6. Ginseng is good to boost your immune system. If you are suffering from a cold or flu, green tea with ginseng and honey can help. Make sure to have it in luke warm temperature.
  7. It can help you lose weight. But, go for the sugar-free version of Arizona Green Tea with Ginseng and Honey.
  8. If you are into sports or something that demands energy, this tea will be very effective for you.
  9. Arizona Green Tea also contains Vitamin C. It fights with harmful free radicals and protects the body from diseases. Vitamin C here also helps in preventing cellular damage.
  10. Some other benefits of green tea are it helps in cancer prevention, joint pain and to cure depression by increasing mental alertness.

I have mentioned the nutritional benefits below so that you can have a better understanding.

Nutritional Content

I am taking the serving size to be 240 ml. All the values below are per serving.

  • Calories – 70 Kilo Calories
  • Calories from Fat – 0
  • Saturated Fat – 0
  • Trans Fat – 0
  • Cholesterol – 0
  • Sodium – 10 milligram
  • Total Carbohydrate – 18 gram
  • Vitamin C – 15 Milligram
  • Protein – 0

Nutrition wise, the tea has a good amount of Vitamin C and Carbohydrates. Also, it has no cholesterol and trans fat, which is again a positive thing.

One serving of 240 ml can easily give you 70 Kcal of energy. You can carry it with you in a small container and have it anytime to feel rejuvenated.

Ingredients

Premium brewed green tea with filtered water, glucose-fructose syrup (High Fructose Corn Syrup), natural flavors, citric acid, honey, ascorbic acid, ginseng extract.

Usage Instructions

Arizona Green Tea is available in powder or tea bag form and liquid form. You can go for either of them.

I go for the liquid one always as I love the bottle or container in which this tea is packed. The container is very durable and is easy to store.

Dosage

I prefer to take it two times a day when I am involved in energy demanding sports. If you are doing anything that requires high energy, have this tea one time in the morning and one time at night.

I am repeating here about its sugar content. It is high in sugar so be very careful. Decide your dose accordingly.

The recommended dose for weight loss is anywhere from 2 to 3 cups a day. But, I tried it and did not find any significant results. Maybe because of the high sugar content.

It is essential for you to know about the side effects of this one. It does not show adverse effects on people generally, but as a precaution, keep the points in mind.

Side Effects

If you are suffering from diabetes or do not want your blood sugar level to rise, avoid the use of Arizona Green tea.

This tea has Ginseng extracts in it, which might cause nausea, vomiting, dizziness and discomfort sometimes.

Pregnant women should avoid the use of this tea because of Ginseng extracts. If you still want to try, consult your physician first.

It might cause an acid reflux when taken empty stomach. So take care while doing that.

Where to buy

For some time it was very difficult to find arizona green tea in local markets in stores. Fortunately, they’ve become available in the online world, so you can now easily order them from the most popular online stores. My favourite online store is Amazon, of course:

Conclusion

So to summarize my review, I will say that I am a happy consumer of Arizona Green Tea with Ginseng and Honey. But, I am not a very regular consumer.

On a warm day or while you are fatigued and exhausted, this tea will sure work wonders in giving you instant energy. But otherwise, the high sugar content turns me off big time.

I will certainly not recommend its daily and long term usage. It might cause some unwanted health ailments. But, you can enjoy this refreshing drink once in a while.

The powdered stix version of green tea with honey has Suralose in it. Suralose (Splenda) is a chemical and it will cause insomina and loose bowels. My mother and I have experienced many sleepless nights because of Suralose and finally stopped buying anything that had Suralose or Splenda as an ingredient. Splenda will cause many unwanted bowel issues.
