View Full Version : Decaf Half Tea/Half Lemonade

05-28-2011, 03:03 PM
So I got my stepdaughter hooked on Arnold Palmers, but my wife stepped in after awhile reminding us that there still is some caffiene in tea. Can anyone recommend a national brand, or a regional brand available in the northeast/mid-atlantic, with a decaf half and half? Diet would be acceptable and actually preffered even, but either option would be great to find out about. Incidentally, I don't golf much, so at a bachelor party last week had my first Palmer while on an actual course. It was neat.

Arnold palmer arizona iced tea.. caffeine? - Yahoo! Answers (http://answers.yahoo.com/question/index?qid=20081212165146AAlgg2m)

IMO...one 8oz serving or so, does not seem like it would be all that much caffeine for a child.
(If your stepdaughter has a sensitivity to caffeine then I can see your wife's point.)
Arizona Arnold Palmer Half & Half Iced Tea & Lemonade Lite is sold on Chicago Peapod On-line Grocers and I believe it is also sold in the Chicago market. Granted that APL is not a true diet beverage.

I'm with Zabe, caffeine content in tea is pretty low.

Turkey Hill makes both a diet decaf tea and a decaf tea. Although they're lemon flavored, not true APs. Though you could add their lemonade to it (might have to try a few times to get the flavor right - I usually do 2/3 tea and 1/3 lemonade).

Another option would be Rosenberger's. I really like their sweet tea. Redner's in Elkton sells it, there's a cooler up front by the eggs. They also have a diet decaf and a decaf lemon tea. I tried the decaf lemon, wasn't really my thing, but it was still ok.

Arizona keeps coming out with new AP flavors. There is a zero calorie version now, as well as a pink lemonade/sweet tea. And supposedly a peach version, but I have yet to see that. Unrelated, but I did find extra sweet green tea in the 23oz cans - I liked it.
