Inspired by the non-alcoholic Arnold Palmer, made from a combination of iced tea and lemonade, Trader Joe's created its own take on the classic drink with its all-new Organic Hibiscus Tea and Lemonade Beverage. The refreshing summer deink combines sweet iced tea with tart lemonade with a twist that's brightly colored and florally flavored.
The bottled beverage is made with a base of cold-brewed hibiscus tea, prepared a simple pairing of water and organic hibiscus flowers, plus organic lemon juice and organic cane sugar. As Trader Joe's describes, "The mixture is tea dominant—about 96% tea to about 4% lemonade." The finished product is touted as a bright and tart product that is a refreshing take on a lightly sweetened lemonade drink.
Knowing many consumers are consciously avoiding sodas, Trader Joe's also notes that the product contains considerably less sugar than soda.
