Arizona Hard Green Tea is an easy-drinking cooler with a hint of nostalgia.
What is Arizona Hard Green Tea?
Arizona Hard Green Tea gives the classic canned green tea a grown-up makeover. The collaboration between Molson Coors Beverage Co. and Arizona Beverages taps into the ever-growing popularity of ready-to-drink cocktails and hard seltzers (the frenzy over the release of White Claw spread even to Canada last March) while adding a dose of 1990s-era nostalgia.
Arizona Hard Green Tea tastes like the 99-cent cans that were a childhood staple for many of us, but adds 5% vodka, turning this after-school treat into a summer patio-ready sipper. It’s currently available in BC, Alberta, and Ontario in single tallboy 473 mL cans or in packs of six 355 mL cans.
Why we love it
The flavour of Arizona Hard Green Tea is bang-on, delivering the promised wave of nostalgia for those of us who guzzled back-to-back cans as kids.
Made with brewed green tea, ginseng flavour, and honey, it’s as sweet and refreshing as the original. The vodka flavour is subtle, a perk for those who don’t enjoy booze-forward bevvies.
You’ll find us cracking into these early on slow Saturday afternoons to take the edge off the summer heat (and to take the traditional afternoon “tea time” up a notch).
