I drank this on a 14-hour work day to see how well it would hydrate and sustain me while doing hard manual labor in a scene shop, as I am in an upcoming production of Sweeney Todd.
The result? A really tasty drink that carries the best of both specific beverages- Arizona's regular iced tea and their mango juice- without the bad stuff.
The best part of the mango juice is the nectar-like texture that goes down your throat, almost a thicker, lassi-like depth to it, but sometimes gets sticky in the back of the throat and all the sugar tends to dry you out. The syrupy texture is cut by the tea's watery texture, and the bitterness of the tea is sweetened by the mango. It's a really perfect drink.
